Browsing the comic section of the bookstore today, I came across the print version of Megatokyo. Given the recent E3 Super Nova, it seemed only fitting to pick it up (I'd read the web version of the comic a while back and it starts off at E3.

The print version has some interesting commentary from the author & artist, talking about the thinking behind it, drawing it, etc. One point he makes is about doing rough sketches and then tracing them.

ArtRage has a tracing-paper feature which makes doing such a thing easy. I did it for my 3rd comic attempt (just for the girl, to figure out how to draw at 3/4 angle). Do the rough sketch, export as image, then start a new file, and set that exported image as tracing paper.
