Wanted to do a more painterly version of Mastema and I got stuck with what to paint for the backgrounds. I always get stuck wondering what to do for backgrounds and ended up back to distant mountain-scapes and lots and lots of skulls. Am always trying something I haven't done before, so this was painted in grey scale before color was overlay-ed on.
iPad 3 is getting slow for this, and I'm limited to 7 layers due to hardware restrictions, so I'm looking forward to the iPad Pro & iPencil, but then again there's the Surface Pro 4 that'll be out soon, and of course there is the Cintiq Companion 2. Procreate is amazing for the iPad, but it doesn't have all the tools I need in Photoshop. I'm hesitant about the Surface's input accuracy and a little put off by the Companion 2's price point, not to mention its weight. Guess will have to wait for the tablets to be released with their pricing before deliberating again on which to go for. What do you think? Which would you choose?
The Mastema OGN is available at Comixology here
and the print version should be available in a comic shops soon.
