Muscle Guy by arthurreeder
Muscle Guy
This is my first pencil and inked panel done in MyPaint with my Monoprice tablet. The lines were solidified and the image was colored with the GIMP. I added the talk bubble with Inkscape. It's taken me almost 5 years but I finally feel comfortable with a fully digital workflow.

Using Gedit to write comic scripts
I'm designing my own version of markdown for comic book authoring. Similar to [fountain]. Right now it's just a thought process but I plan to eventually building a .lang file.

For 2016, I've decided to draw again. I haven't taken my artwork seriously in quite a few years. It's time to change that.

I haven't logged in on here in probably over a year.

I am an amateur comic book artist and professional web developer.

I work almost exclusively in Linux.
I've fallen in love with the paint program MyPaint.  It's a multi-platform applictaion desinged around use with the drawing tablets such as the Wacom Bamboo and such.  The Tablets have been supported in Linux for quite some time now, so setting up is as simple as plugging it in.

MyPaint has an endless canvas.  This is great artistically speaking, but painful with my small 1 Gig of ram.  It's time to expand that a little.

Traditionally I've worked by hand and scanned in my artwork.  I like this better in some ways, I can separate the pencil from the ink and such.  Plus I can carry my entire "Studio" where ever on a thumbdrive.  Nice!

Having said that.  I'm not turning my back on traditional art, just trying to streamline my creative process.
