Just when you think you're getting better...

One likes to think that they improve in craftsmanship the longer they participate in the trade.

For example, take my inking abilities.

Here's a panel from 2009, when I first started doing Lumia's Kingdom. I was using some basic equipment-pens with definite widths, not terribly suitable for varying line weights, but workable.


And here's a panel from the latest comic, where I joined the big boys group and moved on to a Pentel Pocket BruOH GOD THAT ROUGH LINE WORK LOOKS LIKE CRAP D:


So... looking back, there is obviously still a lot I have to improve on. And it's possible that in the process of changing the tools I work with, I have changed the quality of my work as a result. At first, I thought it was for the best, but a recent run through of the pages has proven otherwise...

Guess I still have quite a long ways ahead of me.
