I'm glad everyone is getting acquainted on this here blog. As many of you have probably guessed, I invited people that comment and link their work on John K's blog. John states that the Preston lessons are the only thing you need to become a great cartoonist. I got to about lesson 5 and stopped. I'm hoping that by having a support system we can slowly but surely get through the whole book. I don't know how long it will take, but hopefully everyone here will stick around for the journey.
I wanted to bring up the subject of clean-ups. I know a lot of members here are as eager as I am to perfect our inking skills. I'm suggesting that after we get our best version of our lesson tries, we try to ink it. We could post the best pencil side by side with the inks. Learn 2 things at once. Does this sound good. I'm not sure if everyone here has a Wacom, but I'm sure a brush or pen would be fine. Please give feedback on this.
Thanks again for joining,
