I'm So Tired Of Social Media

I really want to go back to just posting on my blog. It feels like such a safe space. I guess because no one looks at it. Well, anyway, I drew this dumb little comic. I've been having fun doodling these characters in animal costumes and I wanted to play around with a sort of slice of life story featuring these characters dressed up inexplicably. This is mostly just a test, but figured I'd post it here, so you can see my process. Enjoy!

Thumbnails and rough characters in sketchbook.

Pencils. I don't normally pencil in black lead anymore, but was sort of feeling nostalgic.

Inks mostly done, just have to add borders.

Borders all added and a couple final touches.

This is the final scanned.

Pencils were sort of roughly measured, but I didn't use a ruler to trace the lines. I like the rough look of it.

It's sort of hard to tell, but this was drawn on a yellowish/beige cardstock. I wanted to do it on a light green cardstock, but I didn't have the color I wanted in the correct size of paper.

Anyways, I honestly haven't been drawing a lot of comics recently. I've been doing a lot of writing and just silly fanart drawing, but I'm trying to get back in the swing of things. I've got some fun stuff coming up on the horizon.
