Today’s strip introduces Tina, the hummingbird. Hummingbirds are always flitting from here to there, and their wings beat so fast you can hardly see them. Because of this, I’ve made Tina a bit hyperactive.
There are a couple things that I’ve done differently for this strip as well. First of all, I’ve heard that the lettering is extremely messy and illegible, and I understand that, since my handwriting isn’t that great to begin with and I’m not very good at doing it with a pen tablet. So, I’ve made a font out of my handwriting, which should help a bit.
Also, I was using Photoshop to do the strips, but now I’ve switched over to TabletDraw. It’s a great program designed specifically with pen tablets in mind. It’s much more natural, and looks more like it was drawn on a piece of paper, which is what I’m going for. All who like to draw on a tablet should check it out. It’s shareware, so it’s free to use forever, but if you want unlimited undos and more than three layers, you’ll have to pony up $35. I’m broke, so right now I’m learning to deal with the limitations.
