I feel like I haven’t just “played” in a long time. And that’s not to say the drawings I’ve done haven’t been fun. But I haven’t really had a proper sketchbook for just throwing up drawings onto paper. Probably a big part of that, is that I don’t really use paper anymore.
I used to go through sketchbooks like water, buying the cheap spiral bound stuff instead of the nicer hardbound keepsakes for impressing friends. A fifty page sketchbook, front and back, in a week was pretty common. But when it came to photoshop, I’d only ever manage a few files. Bad organization habits on my part and just the nature of saving files individually, never replicated the feel of “filling” a book. And as I moved digitally, I filled less books and focused more on delivering jpgs.
Manga Studio might be my “book filling” fix. I’ll be keeping “Sketch Books” as comic projects and just filling them up whenever I have the urge to doodle. And then, here’s where you guys come in. I can publish and share them pretty easily. Whether I just toss em up for free, or as donation reward, or pay what you want on Gumroad, I’ll debate with myself.
Long story short, I miss just sketching like an idiot.

    I’m still going through that book filling phase, although I’m not nearly as prolific as i was when i was in, say, middle...
