I often get asked questions on how the comic is made, so I thought I'd give a little bit of insight on it.

oh whoah yeah brush pens give a look like no other, but being unable to resize stuff traditionally is a pain, digital has spoiled me so to say lmao

it's so cool to see the befores and afters of things, I need to stop deleting my sketch layers out of habit!

Digital definitely brings more latitude to test things out, twist, rearrange, etc. Less finality.

By the way, I would love to see the different steps your pages go through!

work in progress :D
always interesting!

Love the texture/coloring on the Symbiose panels, it's clean and vibrant, and at the same time still very organic.

On colors-
You probably know this already, but anyways, I'd recommend using the standard when it comes to monitor calibrating. When you use that, the colors will look right ("right" as in how you want them to look), or at least close to right, on most monitors. Should it look weird or bad, then it's on them, not on you ;)

Thanks!
And yeah, at some point you gotta stick with one calibration and accept the fact. I've also found that usually if colors are well balanced they will look fine on most displays. It's just sometimes jarring to see a page on a different screen and realize there's a large different in some tints or contrast.
