So this weekend, I managed to complete a couple tasks on my to-do list, which is always a good feeling. Now I'm stuck between completing the chapter to close up Volume 4, while simultaneously working on a couple exclusive short stories for the book... and plotting the upcoming chapter which I promise is going to be quite a handful.
Switching brain from short "daily" comics to long-form can be really frustrating. I have a story I want to tell, and brain keeps trying to break them into 4 (or less) panels. Having a whole page to tell a part of a story can be pretty daunting. Too many possibilities. Gah.
But now I am in the process of scouring the local channels for Prismacolor Verithin colored pencils. I've been using them for my commissions and originals in lieu of ink or graphite. They work well with my copic markers and gives everything a much softer look. I can find them in *sets* locally, but I'm looking for specific colors... and looks like most shops here don't do that.
Much less carry my specific brand of hot-pressed watercolor paper... :\
Please tell me why I still live in Hawaii? *cry*
