ISIDTA Week 2: My New Monitor
I did thumbnails in my official ISIDTA Moleskine notebook, then used a ruler and a pyrex baking dish to lay out the pencils on Bristol board. I inked the drawings using this amazing Tachikawa #44 nib that Jackson got me (I'm going to try the fabled Deleter G-Pen, but I can't imagine how it could be better than the Tachikawa; this thing feels like an extension of my hand!) The panel borders were done with a bamboo dip pen, which makes a surprisingly smooth and nicely thick line. The whole thing was scanned into Photoshop and hastily coloured using the Wacom tablet.
You can see the full size strip here, and the bare inks here.
As always with the ISIDTA challenge, you can see Kit's submission here.
