Here’s a translation of the bonus sketch pages of the big FMA volumes Faith posted earlier. Not a huge amount of info in them, but make of them what you may…

Enjoy.

Phil Knall very kindly translated the notes on the covers of the Japanese Fullmetal Alchemist volumes I picked up in New York earlier this year. Thanks, Phil! (Click the link to read Arakawa’s notes.)

My long road to get a digital drawing system set up has finally come to some kind of fruition … My first (mostly) complete digital comics page » finished traditional inks. The scan is not cleaned up or the panel borders drawn in (I have always done digital panel borders because I can’t ink a straight line, even with a ruler) because I scanned it at the wrong size for print, so I have to redo it anyway.

Tools involved with this: Cintiq, Manga Studio 5, Epson Artisan 1430, Raphael Klonsky watercolour brush, size 1. And many, many tears. But I think I’m starting to get the hang of this. 

Your hard work is paying off, this looks baller! …. And absolutely torturous.  Does Manga Studio of have some kind of built in function for gridding out perspective for environments?  I tend to work in photoshop, and drop in pre-made grids.

Yep, it does! It has very handy 1, 2 and 3 point perspective grids, which you can adjust easily. One of the big reasons I wanted to use Manga Studio was the grids. I’ve always struggled with perspective, and for something like The Nameless City which is set in a city with lots of houses and streets and other nonsense, I thought the grids would be invaluable. So far they’ve been pretty great. :)

AMAZING

Last week I wrote this piece for Comic Book Resources about the new Teen Titans #1 cover. The point of the piece was hey, there’s a broad demographic DC *could* be hitting with this book but the cover is certainly not made for that potential demographic. Instead, it’s more of the same-old,…

As the comic book industry grows and is exposed to more and more people who are not typical superhero readers, I hope this behavior will be regarded for what it is: unprofessional nonsense, not to be tolerated by the industry. I hope publishers will come to expect a standard of behavior from the artists and writers they hire, and will not tolerate harassment and dismissal of women in the industry.

Comic book professionals, you are PROFESSIONALS. It’s time to start acting like it.

Here is a sketch comic I made called Ducks, in five parts.
Part One
Part Two
Part Three
Part Four
Part Five
Ducks is about part of my time working at a mining site in Fort McMurray, the events are from 2008.  It is a complicated place, it is not the same for all, and these are only my own experiences there.  It is a sketch because I want to test how I would tell these stories, and how I feel about sharing them.  A larger work gets talked about from time to time.  It is not a place I could describe in one or two stories.  Ducks is about a lot of things, and among these, it is about environmental destruction in an environment that includes humans.  Thank you for taking the time to read it.

I was in New York City last week to meet with my publisher, and did what I always do in New York: made a beeline for Kinokunya the minute I had some free time. These are some lovely oversized Fullmetal Alchemist volumes, published in Japanese that I’ve been collecting. I think they’re absolutely gorgeous. They’re considerably larger than regular manga (the better to see Hiromu Arakawa’s beautiful artwork) and contain the original colour pages from the manga serialization. There are also more chapters in these volumes than the original release (volume 18 is the completion of the story, the original publication goes up to volume 27). The dust jackets also come off to reveal character sketches on the covers. I can’t read Japanese, so if anyone’s kind enough to translate the notes handwritten on the covers, that would be incredibly cool. 

… a bit of an indulgence for the Fullmetal Alchemist nerd in your life. ;)
