Sketch Fridays #82 – “Call Me Home” Page. Drawn in Procreate on the iPad Pro.

This is the first time in about twelve years that I’ve drawn an entire page digitally, from start to finish. I think, in the long run, it was faster than how I normally draw comics, but I think for this mini-comic––a story called “Call Me Home” (a piece of concept art was a previous Sketch Friday)––I’m also being less precious because it’s a black & white comic that takes place in the snow and is much more of a tone piece than the plot & continuity-driven story found in Long John. Overall, it’s been a fun muscle to stretch and may be a tool set I use for future comics, though Long John will remain pen and ink on paper through to the end.

Also, it’s really cool that Procreate records a playback of every file you draw, allowing me to continue producing process videos even though it’s all digital:
