Sometimes, you just gotta do some black and white Janelle Monáe fan art.

Here are some portraits of literary characters I did a while back for one of those “What Character Are You?” internet quizzes!
Pictured are: Tom Sawyer, Alice in Wonderland, Elisabeth Bennett, Jane Eyre, Jim Hawkins, Jo March, Mr Darcy, and Poirot.
Happy N7 Day, fellow Mass Effect geeks! <3
This started out as just me wanting to draw a falling Shepard, but then I added a few more characters… and then I added even more characters… and then I added pretty much almost all of the characters… whoops.
I made a full color as well as a more monochrome version because I can’t decide which I prefer. What do you think?
Garrus: How about this one: Remember the time when Shepard…
Liara: Goddess, how could I forget?
Tali’Zorah: The Commander really knew how to make an entrace… And an exit.

I did Lockjaw sketches for Hero Initiative’s #wakeupanddraw event!
A helpful @Mangastudio #protip from @rondanchan:
I started doing digital inking in Manga Studio 5 recently, and for the most part, it feels fantastic. The inking tools feel extremely responsive, smooth, and accurate.
One thing just wasn’t working for me, however. When I first started, I was having trouble with the thickness of my lines, and it took me a couple minutes to realize what the culprit was: Screen-relative brush sizing.
In Photoshop, brush size is absolute - a size 30 brush is always a size 30 brush, no matter how far you are zoomed in or zoomed out. Not necessarily so in Manga Studio. Manga Studio has a setting called “Specify By Size On Screen” - this setting makes it so that your brush maintains its size relative to your screen, not your document. It will look the same width and draw the same width on your screen no matter your zoom level - this means that if you double your zoom, you have halved your brush size. Your size 30 brush is now a size 15 brush. This makes it very difficult to keep your line weights consistent across a drawing or comic page, and that don’t fly with me.
Luckily, this is very easily changed. So, if this annoys you too, uncheck that box, as shown in the screencap, and draw happier!
