Sorry for being so late/haphazard, gang! I'll try to keep on schedule, supplies cooperating!

I'm running low on grey markers so that's another investment...I go through a LOT of different grey shades on this strip!!

I got some new felt nib pens, they'll last me until the Rapidographs are purchased.

Thanks for your patience and loyalty!!

OH...PS: Mo, what was your idea on getting my "own site" for the comic. I might be able to bring others over, also, get back to critiques and meaningful discussions on the craft AND hard copy editions of Mad Jack are ready for sale, at least the first one.

Whoever cut Figar's hair should be taken out and flogged!
Tarns, markers are expensive! Watercolour is SO much cheaper and lasts way longer. Rapidographs are also expensive and a royal pain-in-neck to keep clean. Microns are like 3-4 bucks and don't require cleaning, totally water/smudge proof, can't say same for the rapidos.

"Microns" are what I use, although they come in several manufacturing brands. The Prismacolors I have now offer a .08 which is a much broader stroke.

Rapidographs flow better for me and have a wide tip at the end of their scale, although I may just pull the Rapido bug out of my ass and call that a day.

I've never used watercolors and have no idea about how to learn to use them. Somehow, if there is a God, he has a helluva sense of humor because he keeps steering me to this expensive shit on my beer budget!!

....and I fell over laffin' at the "Prometheus" comment! That's what I said right after I inked it. I was going for that classical European "statue" look, but it would be a much better movie if I remade it!!!

Tarns, I'm with Mo on the watercolors. I work on bristol with a cheap set of watercolors I've had for over 10 years. The last couple ink LaRues were inked with a fountain pen. I found a fountain pen ink called Noodler's that you can watercolor over.

I find markers too expensive in the long run.

Well, I guess I'll have to "experiment" and see what happens.
