I’m seeing a lot of new faces which is rad. Here’s some work to give you an idea of what I like to make.

Hint, monsters. Lots of monsters.

Shoutout to Steak, my half-elf Warlock that just rolled 6 for the first four of his 4d6 x6, drop lowest, stats.

I usually roll around the standard array, but damn.

Finally finished this two page spread of .

The composition seems a bit funky at a glance, but there's a gutter in the middle.

I usually doodle in the margins of my session notes, occasionally making small doodles on the actual pages too, and this is what I got up to during my Paranoia and Stars Without Number games this week.

iPad noodling.

This is a nice, simple, two-layer, two-brush workflow for banging out a ton of .

I like less moving parts, layer effects and steps. Less time tinkering, more time drawing.

I'm pretty happy with this approach so far. It's like a wash piece, but done in reverse. Add the white, not the grey.

I think I finally settled on the style for finishing off my inked .

I'd like to keep things fairly -y and single color, so going with a value-only approach was key to it.

Rather than have pieces that were predominantly white with grey washed in, I'm doing predominantly black and grey with just touches of white.

Still feeling pretty hatchy in my inks lately. Doodled my Stars Without Number character.

Keep + insomnia is great for ideation at like four AM, haha.

I’m waiting until I have 100 to start giving them stats and detailed descriptions beyond my rough first thoughts. About 25 down so far.

Hmm. I'm using the Krita Lime ppa, but is there a Krita Next ppa for 4.2? I'd love to try out the upcoming gamut masks but still have it auto-update via ppa.

@FRENDEN I wrote an article about my experience using Scribus for a novel on my blog. At the end I linked related tutorials that helped me.

pixelvaniastudios.com/2018/11/

I couldn't have gotten started without the downloadable "Getting Started with Scribus" tutorial, though. wiki.scribus.net/canvas/Get_St
Before that I had no idea what was going on.

If you use, and love, Scribus -- what tutorials do you recommend? What guides are good? Any videos you dig?

I'm *trying* to like this app, I really am.

How are Quark, InDesign, and Scribus the only decent apps for laying out books? Affinity Publisher has potential too. I like it. But still.

Also, Linux has come a long way with apps for nearly activity being up to par, commercially, but Scribus is not good. SUPER NOT GOOD.

I just wanna shout out the healthcare system which made me wait about five months past when I realized I needed glasses to get my new deductible cycle rolling so that spending money on my health wasn't akin to lighting it on fire.

Now that it's a new year, though, and a new deductible, I need to get on that shit.
