Slow Draw

The program I use to make my Secret Government Robots is called Paint.NET and usually I find it extremely useful. I like to think that over the years I’ve gotten better at using it. A week or so ago, the software updated and it has changed a few things just enough to slow down the process of comic making as I have taught it to myself over the years. I’ll probably have to change my style a bit to speed things up, but I don’t want to do that in the middle of a story. Oh well. C’est la vie.

Another thing that has been slowing me down as far as comic pages is concerned, is that I’ve been doing a lot of character sketches. Ever since I started to color the Super Sunday sketches, which I do with a program called GIMP (almost exclusively for a function to expand my selection, which Paint.NET doesn’t have), I have discovered that I straight up love doing sketches of my characters. I’ve drawn all sorts of characters from SecGov and Hover Head just for my own amusement (and partially so that I can have easily-located reference images). Someday I’ll find a good use for them on the site and it will justify the time I’ve spent on them…

  1. Reading Slow Draw has put Foghat’s Slow Drive into my head. Ah well I’ve had much worse things stuck in my head.
