Sam and Fuzzy Q & A: Marked Edition
Got a question you want answered? Just drop me an email with "Q & A" in the subject line!
"I bought your comic book "Sam and Fuzzy" at Anime Revolution a few days ago, and took a look at your art on Tumblr. What kind of markers do you use?" -Tyson (Reposted from Tumblr)
I mostly use Prismacolors, or sometimes Promarkers. I usually colour on the computer, though, and only really work with markers at cons, so I’m no expert! I use the lighter pastel colours because the streaking is less noticible even when I am colouring fast, which is often the case at cons.
The black lineart is all done with Staedtler and/or Zig brushpens, which are what I use for everything.
"So what does Alexa think about Sam vanishing? Heck, this is the second time this has happened to her. Or it is too soon to ask this question? Same question applies to Nicole." -Tom
I'm not sure if we'll really delve into Alexa's reaction much, but I imagine she is just exasperated with Sam's screwball life more than anything. (Especially since she does, after all, own the now-destroyed office suite that Sam was renting for N-M-S.)
Nicole's reaction, on the other hand, is osmething we will definitely be delving into within the comic, so I'd best stay quiet on the subject for now!
"Will we ever get more on Sin's real appearance beyond "Space gopher"? Because I can't stop wondering what he looks like. " -Anket
In general, I think it is better for "never-fully-seen" type characters to remain left to the reader's imagination, where they attain a kind of mysticism that no reveal could ever really live up to. (And you especially shouldn't reveal their face via an action figure, like they did with Dr. Claw!) I don't think I'd show something like Sin's "true form" on-camera unless there was a really compelling narrative reason to do it.
That's a wrap for this week! See you on Monday, team.
