(sidenote: I love drawing derpfaces like this.)
Reminder that I have a Patreon campaign! If you like the comic, you can directly support me for only $1 a month!
So these are going to be the first pages drawn with my new tablet monitor. I’d love to have feedback on this chapter. Let me know what you think!
Today was so great! I got to meet the creators of the webcomics Monsterkind, Sakana, Distillum, and Hot Stuff at this week’s Sequential Art Society meeting. It was super inspiring and encouraging to hear what they had to say. And I gave them these ink wash drawings and they were all super sweet and awesome about it. I got hugged a bunch and Taylor drew an adorable little Wally Foster for me (which I will also post). I spent most of the time covering my face and giggling (something I’d like to think I picked up from Val Hochberg haha). Thanks for dealing with my ridiculousness, ladies. You’re all amazing <33
Look at this gorgeous watercolor of Rob I received today! Everyone needs to follow Annie RIGHT NOW!
Super quick low-res doodle, my first ever with my new tablet monitor!
First impressions are WOW, THIS YIYNOVA WAS SO WORTH THE MONEY. It’ll take me a while to get used to drawing directly on the screen (I’ve been using tablets for 15+ years), but I’m excited! This was drawn in Manga Studio 5.
Hey guys! Sorry there’s been no art around here in a while. I just finished building my new computer, and have ordered a graphics card AND a Yiynova tablet monitor! I’m super stoked and can’t wait to get to more art making.
I’m posting this to announce that Distillum will continue to be on hiatus until I get my new equipment. Since chapter seven is the start of volume 3, I’d like to have the consistency of using my new art tools for it. I’ve never had a tablet monitor before, and it could slightly change how I make the comic (hopefully for the better).
What I’ll be doing in the meantime is preparing volume 2 for printing, as well as getting scripts for future chapters worked out, so there will be less time off between chapters. I’m also going to work on a special bonus comic that will be a volume 2 exclusive.
Thanks so much for reading and for your patience!
(I’m also going to be starting a youtube channel for gaming and animation and art timelapses and streaming more regularly isn’t that EXCITING)
The comic is going on a (short!) hiatus while I get chapter 7 going. Thanks for reading, everyone! ♥
Sorry for the late upload. Been having internet problems all week.
Also, I’m back to twice a week updates. Holidays were crazy, man.
