OH THANK YOU SKY VOICE I DON'T WANT TO DRAW THIS BATTLE
I mean... Um...
Anyway, I'm unbelievably happy right now.
Well, not really. I'm too tired to be, BUT I WILL BE LATER, because I figured out something technical (by which I mean I was looking up something else entirely and stumbled backwards into useful information), and after a bit of preparation, I can do much more complex linework quickly.
I've been very stressed out trying to find a balance between digital inking production time and quality, which has ironically added to how long comics have taken to make because I'd keep doing experiments that I'd ultimately have to reverse for the sake of consistency (or them turning out terribly, either/or).
And now just, like, out of nowhere, I've figured out how to do this quickly, and there's room to do more nifty things with custom brushes that wouldn't have worked before, and...
I'm just feeling more optimistic and eager to ink things than I have in a long time.
So yeah. I'm liking 2021 more than 2020 so far.
