Anonymous said: What type of pen/pencil are you using?
I switched to faber-castell 0.5 B leads a while ago and I’m the happiest I’ve ever been penciling. (I still prefer just drawing straight in ink but I’m nowhere near drawing comics straight to ink. These days my favorite ink sketching pen is a zebra fude pen).
Since all my fanart has been x-men lately, here’s Sokaku and one of his friends

Conglomerating the things you like (or dislike) into your “own thing” is more of a practice thing than a time thing, at least it was for me. I think I drew easily over 100 pages where I was trying to figure out how to hold a pencil, how to draw inside little boxes, etc. I started seriously drawing in like 2006 or so, if that helps (and it’s always an ongoing thing, being yourself). But I think it’s more of a page volume thing than anything else. And don’t forget to have fun with it, too.

Hey, thanks for the kind words! I’ll have to take this up to Boom/Archaia and see what they’ve got in mind. The book seems to be sold out at a lot of online places (though I’m really sure there’s plenty of copies sitting at comics stores, etc). I don’t even know if it’s out of print yet — and I doubt there’ll be a reprint before that happens. I wouldn’t hold my breath for it anytime soon, just so you know!
