The digital blues

I recently started working with the Procreate art program on the iPad.  I always wanted to draw the blues mystery story I have been working on in a digital format, and now I can do so much more easily.  Several artist friends have been raving about this setup for digital art, and I can see why now. It’s very intuitive and streamlined.  I still have a lot to learn, but I’m already getting pretty comfortable with it.

As you can see, I’m drawing this comic in a pretty different style from my other work.  I’m working with a limited color palette and only using “rough” digital brushes for the inking/coloring.  I will still probably make adjustments and tweaks as I work through this 18 page story, but I think I’m finding an approach that works.

So here is the first panel from that story that is still a work in progress…  Enjoy!
