Thanks Ellis!

Thanks for the pencil Ellis!  Here's the first drawing to come out of that pencil.  I haven't drawn with a pencil like that in so long I think I'm a bit rusty... I plan on tinkering with the drawing some more to pull more values out of it. 

This was a lot of fun... I think after doing that strip digitally for so long its pretty refreshing to go back to traditional media.


  1. Very nice piece. Glad you got the pencil that helped create it. I thought most of your pieces were brush pen. Are you doing Nearsighted Comics digitally?

  2. Yup, Nearsighted Comics is totally digital. I did it for expediency sake, but in hindsight, I think the drawing quality has suffered because of that approach.

    Still, I don't think I would have been able to keep up with 3 strips a week if I didn't do it digitally.

  3. Was this brought about by that new Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes trailer? It looks intense.

  4. I didn't just spell Caesar right. I made the link work

  5. You're asking the wrong guy... I don't know anything.

  6. I get you. Nudge , nudge, wink , wink.

    Here's some new blackwing 602 stuff. Since this thread is inspired by a blackwing drawing.
