If you don't mind sharing, what are your brush settings? > v < Such as when you sketch something or when you line something?

mm not sure if this would really help much since I pretty much just use the default settings haha, but for sketching and colouring I usually use the airbrush tool (left) and for lining I use the pen tool (right)

what's your HQ level in kantai collection? what level is your highest level ship?

I actually haven’t kept up for a while- I think I’m only level 49- and my highest level ship is around 75-80

I have a question about your "Process shots of Jinx", in the third shot (where you color in the weapons and Jinx in gray), are they on separate layers? And do you color over the gray color or do you get rid of it and then apply the colors? Sorry if this sounds confusing, I'm really bad at explaining things ><

Ah yup, the different greys are on separate layers- basically when I’m flatting in colours, I just do it all in different shades of grey to make it easier to distinguish between the layers. Afterwards I just set each layer to preserve opacity and fill them with the appropriate colours + etc.


Hi, guys!! I worked on this short piece back in March as my entry for the 2014 Silent Manga Audition. Judging has just ended, so all the entries are now public!

It ended up on the finalist list as a Winner’s Runner-Up, which I’m… utterly speechless about!!!!! I really can’t express my honor?!?! I’m still in a dream-like state of disbelief, to be honest… I hope I can give my thanks to the committee soon!! (They haven’t contacted us yet lmao)

I also have a lot of commentary about this piece, but I don’t want to spill them all on this post, so here’s a link to that as well hahahaha

Hope I have the time and diligence to produce more comics in the near future!! Thanks for reading!

If I want to pick it up at AR, would I still have to preorder on storenvy?

ah nope! I’ll have saved some for AR as well so there’s no need to preorder if you’re going-
