On the Eve of Destruction
Happy New Year! Tomorrow. Hopefully your having a good eve. Once again I drew this comic totally digitally with my new tablet. I’m very happy with the results. It was very quick to do and I already see a lot of improvement from my first digital attempt. I learned a lot the first time and put it to use here. There is still more to learn though.
Funny, I think this digital drawing looks much more inked than my standard traditional drawing, which actually uses ink. That has to do with my ability to choose how wide I want my pen to appear and my templates ability to sense the pressure I’m applying to the pen. Amazing how much this technology has improved and become affordable. I remember when it was thousands of dollars not too long ago, and a mere pipe dream. Now you can get one for under a hundred.
I wrote this one. I also wrote the next three you’ll be seeing. Nothing as epic as the plane arch from a few months back, just simple silly jokes I had rumbling around in my head as I thought about this meeting. I did my best to continue in the tone Alex had done, so hopefully it’s fairly seamless. I think they’re funny.
I like that this one focuses a bit more on the Lone Wolf’s arrogance, more in line with his original depiction in Black Snow. Sometimes I think we’ve turned him into more of a bumbling innocent fool now a days, but I like to remember that he has a darker side. He can be quite rude, and I think he is smarter than he tries to appear.
