Spun Off Page 85 now on Patreon
The latest page of Spun Off is now available for Patrons on my Patreon: www.patreon.com/posts/spun-off… and on my blog: reinderdijkhuis.com/wordpress/…
It will be posted on the Spun Off website for non-Patrons to read on Thursday.

This page was done end-to-end on iPad, the second Spun Off page to be created that way. I used Autodesk Sketchbook for drawing and Affinity Designer for lettering and word balloons. Thanks to the experiments I did in November, it was a problem-free process, a little slower still than doing the lettering and ballooning in Photoshop on the desktop but without any real "how do I do this?" moments cropping up. I'm going on vacation abroad next week and want to travel light, so if I can leave the laptop at home, that would be great.

Finbar Rose Hork
I spent far too much time today coloring simple drawings with Copic and Twinmarker markers (mostly Copic but the Twinmarkers, which are cheap faux-Copics, come in handy often enough for me to put up with their faults. In the process, I learned a few things about blending different marker colors, fixing errors with the colorless blender, and, at the end of the process, using Affinity Photo to compensate for scans that came out too pale. With the paper originals as a reference, I could restore the original colors without any problems, and then fix blemishes with the inpainting tool and the regular brushes. For touching up traditional art, it's better than Sketchbook and probably as good as Photoshop.

Here, I added a little more detailing and went further with the blending. The brickwork is a Cool Grey (CG4) overpainted with Cadmium Orange (YR07) creating a red/brown brick color. There are little bits of blending in Finbar's face as well. The eyes were redone in Affinity Photo because I caused a massive blob over the left eye during inking 

As for the subject: It's Finbar from Spun Off but in a blue and white pajama top that says "Rose Hork" in pink lettering. This came out of the Nude Toon Creation drawing challenge where we had to draw our characters in pajamas. I ended up doing a few variations with different characters and re-used the concept for my Copic practice.

For touching up traditional art, it's better than Sketchbook and probably as good as Photoshop. 

I attempted again to make the coloring as flat as possible, with better success overall than last time. However, I ran into some trouble on the right side of the drawing, presumably because oils from my hand interfered with the ink from the marker and prevented it from staying on the paper. I don't know. I do think that I might be better off creating more detailed inks that don't require large areas of one color. I'll try that some time in the next few weeks.

Anyway, here's Krakatoa in her blue dress from Feral.

A new Chronicles of the Witch Queen story, Castle of the Gods, started on Wednesday at the slightly more relaxed schedule of three per week. Read it, starting at this page: Start of Castle of the Gods

My involvement in new Chronicles of the Witch Queen is minimal. I'm pretty much only the webmaster for this webcomic at this point, but I love it for how surreal it's gotten. This one is also going to be a trip.
