What grows underground?
Mushrooms, worms, spuds and monsters?
And glows? Is it safe?

Your cartload of horse apples
Is not fruit to eat

I’ll always prefer “real” analogue pens, pencils and paper, but I gave Clip Studio another go at the weekend along with my Huion GT-220 v2 tablet monitor and I ended up enjoying myself. This is a very early work-in-progress from something I’ve been thinking about while I work on freelance gigs.
Clip Studio’s drawing tools are second to none I’d say, and I particularly like the vector ink pen(s). The pencil tools have a very authentic feel and behaviour. As for the Huion, I bought it for a job and when that was done I stored it away for a while, but I’m glad to re-visit. If you’re looking at a good, value-for-money alternative to a Wacom Cintiq then I’d recommend it. The pen stylus isn’t the greatest quality, but the display itself is very good inded. Considering the GT-220 cost less than half of the equivalent Wacom, I’d recommend it for anyone who doesn’t want to spend too much on a first drawing monitor. Obviously, you could argue that an iPad Pro would be a better choice (and Clip Studio has a reportedly great version available for iOS), but personally I like having my work tools on a “proper”operating system such as Windows or MacOS (as far as I’m aware there is no Linux support from Clip Studio or Huion)
A sketch in search of something more substantial. As usual.
Me and the first born are playing a lot of Magic again (they are particularly in deep) and we never have enough token creatures. So here is one I made earlier. I should really use an MTG sized card (rather than a blank playing card), but can you actually get them?
A bit busy at the moment. Not enough brain space to write or even think about haiku. So here is a tiny doodle if a church crypt for no reason whatsoever.
