wall of text, much? <.<;
i understand that. when i first got a tablet i was mostly annoyed with everything and just went back to pencil and paper. the biggest trick that i stumbled upon that really made me want to practice more was setting the paintbrush to around 45% opacity. it takes more brushstrokes to get the full color. then using the eyedropper tool (which is one of my tablets hotkeys, conveniently enough) i can quickly go from lighter to darker or shades between two colors by using the various shades i get from the layered brushstrokes. it feels like a more natural blending then all the various fancy tools those programs have, hehe. of course, all this isn't to say that flat colors don't work! and your inkwork (that is, your outlines) seem to translate very well to digital. in the end, it's just a different kind of art, with different merits and cons... and really, in the spare time between various errands, it should be the art you enjoy doing most that you work at! XD

It's probably because I have gotten so completely frustrated with digital ink that I now use only two brushes, the "ink" and "gouache" in Corel Painter. But I have a lot of problems with blending, which is why I have so much flat color - I'm very impressed with how much blending you have been putting into your panels!

so, i'll have to go back through this archive at some point, but at a glance, i'm actually surprised at how closely some of the pages resemble your traditional art, especially considering how stiff digital brushes can be (and there is that whole, relearning how to draw cause tablets are just weird at first) it took me forever to figure it out, and then i got addicted... and then space and money made the traditional media hard to use, hehe. keep at it when time allows :) it's all very lovely to look at.
