I’m sure we’ve all experienced compulsive workaholic tendencies. Okay but dude, you’re on a space train. A space train.


Blog: Remember how I’ve been horribly sick for the past three(?) weeks? Well the coughing has finally stopped. But now I have terribly swollen and sore gums around my emerging wisdom tooth. It’s actually waking me up in the middle of the night, screwing up my sleeping schedule. Joy.

This week has been super frantic. As I probably mentioned, I’m moving to a new suburb soon and I’m ever slowly moving in my things. And I have a lot of them. If you’ve ever moved before, you’ll know it’s super duper stressful — but so much moreso when you’re doing it all alone. I really wish someone could be there to just hold me and tell me everything will be okay periodically as I pack things. I have no idea how I’m gonna pull through. But hey, at least I’m pulling through with my art, which is my life right now.


Page Notes:

To make the space backgrounds, I use blue and purple splotched around with an aliased brush. In the fourth panel here, though, I accidentally picked black instead of the darker tone (it was very late at night when I darken my screen), and ended up making the space black and blue. But the powerful contrast of it made it look super intense, and I ended up keeping it. A happy little accident.

I think one thing I’ve still gotta work on is making my backgrounds less empty. I always worried so bad about cluttering them up and distracting from the foreground action, but I think they could actually use a little more. If you see new little details appear in the room, ssshhhh.


That’s all for this week! Have a happy, happy weekend. You can follow Bros in Space on Facebook and Twitter below (I’m getting into the habit of updating them way more!), and there’s my personal twitter, for updates about, well, me. Till next week, cheers!
