Real Life Doesn't Have A Ctrl+Z

Another one that started in Storyboard Pro after a long-ass work day.

I haven't been able to draw for over a month, I get the odd day off here or there which I spend in front of my cintiq, but nothing seems to come out. In order to work my way around this art block I've started to dabble with inks, first with fountain pens, then with dipping nibs and most recently with a brush. I suspect that this is just an excuse to spend money and not really addressing the problem, especially since I seem to fuck up every second or third line and real life doesn't have a Ctrl+Z.

I don't have Photoshop on my work computer, so I doodle quick sketches in Storyboard Pro. There is something about the basic no-frills brush I use and the ability to select/manipulate or delete lines that feels right. Both of the drawings above were sketched in Storyboard Pro and cleaned & coloured at home in Photoshop.

Things Can Always Get Worse

It hasn't been a good July. I've been pretty disappointed with my work (both day job and personal) for some time and was on the verge of quitting my job when a family medical emergency suddenly came up and put my own meager problems into perspective.
