In Quackcast 118 Banes and I approach the subject of Photoshop, attempting to give a quick intro to the dark, mysterious, primordial creator god of webcomics… in our own rambling way, well in MY own rambling way since I'm the on bumbling through pretending to know what I'm talking about while Banes asks sensible questions to prod me along onto the correct lines again. We chat about layers, setting stuff to “multiply” and what that means, mention short-cuts, pallets etc. One of the conclusions we come to is that good old Photoshop is such a gigantic behemoth that as a webcomic artist you don't really need it anyway since it's massive overkill and there are many specialised art programs that are more streamlined and more clearly focussed on the art skills you need, BUT if you really MUST have a pro photo-editing tool like Photoshop hopefully this gives you at least some brief info on it- as much as you can without screen-shots and stuff. :)

Next week we have on Kevin Hayman, also known as “Kota”, author of such awesome webcomics as Kota's World, Errant Apprentice, and Mailbox Rocketship. He also does some broadcasts for The Gigcast on Nightgig.com… which is like the Quackcast only about a bazillion times more magical and amazing. Seriously, it's like The Wizard of Oz: Quackcast is the black and white bit at the start and the Gigcast is where it suddenly all turns to colour and gets all trippy.
So that's for NEXT WEEK!
