Working with Archie, etc
Hey all, I get lots of questions, or I should say I get the same question a lot, about how to get in with Archie comics and what its like to work with them. I can't answer this question every time I get it, so I've cut and pasted my answers from bumbleking.com and now anyone who can stand to read through all of the stuff below can find out as much as I can remember or am willing to try and relay about how I got into comics. Let me give you the short version here first: 1. If you want to do comics, then PRACTICE DRAWING EVERYTHING, DO NOT STICK WITH JUST PINUPS AND DO SEQUENTIAL PAGES!!!! I cannot overemphasize that. 2. Do your own self pub

FAQ


Bullet; Red May I use your brushes in my print / comic / other thing I'm selling?
Yes.

Bullet; Orange Do your brushes work with SAI?
No.  SAI does not recognize the ABR format.  Its brush engine is also very different from Photoshop.  If you want to use my brushes in a program like SAI, I'd recommend using an image pack if available, and pasting them like stock.

Bullet; Yellow Do I have to tell you when I use your materials?
No, but I do like seeing what's done with the materials I've made!  Feel free to share!

Bullet; Green What are the "Converted Brushes"?
These were brushes which were created by Axeraider70.  Years ago, we came to an agreement that I could convert them to a format compatible with Photoshop 7.  ...I don't have Photoshop 7 anymore.

Bullet; Blue Can you make your brushes work for versions of Photoshop older than CS2?
No, I cannot, and do not actively support it.  If you need to use my materials for older versions of Adobe's software, please use the image packs to create your own brush sets.

Bullet; Purple Would you be willing to make a brush set for me?
I cannot, unfortunately.
