Practice with G-PEN and MARU-PEN

It’s been a long time I don’t use them, maybe 2years? Anyway when I tried again, I forgot how to use them, ended up being messy >_> it’s a problem, since I plan to use them to make comic for zenon competition. I have to practice from the start again.

The difference is, this time I’m using imStudio B4 paper. When I hold the pen, It felt like I was a decent mangaka, using tools that most Japanese mangaka used ^__^;; and seconds after that, I realized I suck LOL.

Like Miura-sensei said, if you don’t practice much, you’ll end up stay behind. Worse, you’ll forget how to use it.

Here is my first practices:Image

the very first try after years ^_^ using g pen and 100% beta. I spend too much inking lol but you know, it has some..different feels inking those beta compared to just paint-bucketing it on photoshop.


still with g pen, but I used many maru pen on this. I am pretty fond of maru pen, but the line is too thin therefore I have to make the main lines with g-pen first then detail it with maru-pen.

By the way, anyone knows how to make straight line using ruler and g-pen? I tried many times during making beta flash and the ink..well going everywhere. I still don’t know how to make it properly and the tints won’t go crazy like this:


It’s been years and it’s very fun! It’s much more fun than doing digital lining, I don’t know why, eventhough there’s no undo button, still can’t grasp the feel and it’s so messy ^_^ I’ll practice for one week then I’ll have to start doing the comic no matter how bad the result ^_^;

wish me luck~ look forward for another result!
