Just made some finishing touches on this last night (aka screentones) while watching the Swan Princess to unwind after a super stressful day of epic fail apartment hunting.
I haven’t been around much nor working on much art because I just accepted a job two hours from where I live and I’ve been trying to find an apartment on my days off while working 35 hours a week at the same time @_@;;; My old job ends Oct 4th and my new on starts Oct 6th so trying to find an apartment in that time is hard, and then moving in that time as well…STRESS STRESS STRESS.
But this is an artist trading card for VanillatheFox on deviantart. 2.5x3.5 inches, fineliner pens, white gel pen, copic black marker, and traditional screentones+x-acto knife. 
Did I mention I freaking love screentones? I feel like it takes my black and white work up another level and I really REALLY wanna do a traditionally screentoned comic. 
Approx 3 hours.

april-lilies:

As kotsuso just mentioned, he and I did a kinda dual 24 hour comic thing about a month ago. We gave each other prompts to prevent the other from planning ahead, and he gave me a few different songs to pick from. Well, this completely departed from the original song and idea, but here are the 5 pages that I finished in the 24 hours. I got these done along with the plot, script, and paneling out and inking all of the panels on all 24 pages.

Slicker is a sort of symbolic and possible story of Maldi Hyde, one of my character babies.

I will finish it eventually.

Tools are red pencil, faber castell F fineliner, and a sharpie.

Here have a thing. Various refs from google used.

Soooooo, I bought nearly $300 worth of screentones and manga supplies form another user on dA and this drawing has been sitting around half inked for about two months. I’d really wanted to tone the image but I had no tones and then WELP I JUST GOT A BUNCH FRIDAY so I had to tone this. This is literally 100% traditional. NOT. A. THING. IS. DIGITAL. Also, I drew the dragon, that’s not a tone because a friend asked me about that when I showed him a WIP. Every place you see a pattern it was cut out by hand with an x-acto knife. It was pretty ambitious for my first legit toned drawing, but I am pretty fucking pleased. Except that tones done scan very well and I had some grit on my scanner it looks like. But whatever. I wanted to make it look like one of those chapter divider pages you see in manga 8D Pretty damned stoked about tones and stuff, not going to lie. And Jin bby being all sullen. Tools: Faber Castell fineliner pens (XS, S, and M), Copic black marker, Bic Atlantis ballpoint pen (hair), sakura micron 005, gelly roll white pen, Deleter 10% low density tone, Deleter wood grain tone, I.C. 20% tone, Deleter SE-611 tone, I.C. manga manuscript paper 110kg, and an x-acto knife with a new super sharp blade @_@I don’t have a desk so I work while sitting on my bed and I dropped the x-acto knife while working and cut a hole in my pillowcase ._. Also I keep finding screentone bits in my bed. Oops.Took 12 hours-ish just to tone it, idk about drawing and inking it since I drew and inked it over two months.Photo ref of myself used.

Boop, more work on this. Totally forgot to time anything and I was watching Perfect Blue and Paranoia Agent and chatting while working anyways. 
I’m trying to make it look like one of those chapter divider illustrations in manga and I think it’s working so far. Still gotta fine tune the blacks on the left, draw the pattern on his clothing, and screentone it.
Woot for over render hair with no discernible light source *D

kotsuso asked: The Muscle Dick technique is an ancient and formidable family secret, passed down through the Armstrong family for generations!

THAT’S WHAT PEOPLE WERE SAYING IN THE STREAM TOO. 

Though I think he’d have a more beefy and less pearled dick. But yes. Muscle dick.
