Well, my submission to The Dandy was returned as unsuccessful. Apparently, the editor liked the art though, which is encouraging! So now to retool it a little and submit the strip to The Phoenix, another kid-friendly comic which I wish was sold in shops other than Waitrose. Grr.
On the plus side, I sketched a load of headshots in the pub last night using a biro and I just gave this one a quick Photoshop redo.
I think it looks okay and it's all essentially in aid of getting the hang of PS CS6 with my Wacom Bamboo tablet. I'm using Adobe Creative Cloud which is just a BEAST and it, along with the iMac's display, has given me much more drive to illustrate in a quicker, looser but still cool way (I think).
