Even things you say are sketches look lovely and neat to me XD so just do what you are comfortable with. I'd imagine this is a time consuming process anyway, so don't tire yourself out!

Everyone in the cafe except Mateus can answer specific questions starting with who, what, why, etc. Some of their names are a clue lol! There will be more clues later in the manga~ xD
Thanks for reading my manga, Hearts!

They ARE super fun to draw! You should add some to Lovelocket if you have the chance to! Thanks so much, Jen! I'm been on a roll the past few days~ I better take advantage of it before my motivation disappears lol!

Thank you, Ramen!
I use Photoshop CS6 for the panels, balloons, screentone patterns, and text. Then I use SAI paint tool for the drawings~
Yes, I have recovered! I'm up and it feels like normal, but with a little tension and pain here and there, but no biggie~ xD

WHA! New pages, this is so cool! I don't know how I have missed this.... -_-
I'm glad you are posting more pages and trying to get this story done! I don't remember if I have asked you this... but what programs did you use for this? like for the speech bubbles and panels?
Also I'm hoping you are doing well and have recovered from your surgery!

Wah Panou!! You rule! Yay more pages! I'm so glad that you've come back to this manga, I know how hard it can be to work on an old project when new projects take over.. But seriously, this is so awesome! I'll always support you and this manga, so take your time but keep it up too! And as for doing chapter spreads, you should do what you feel.. If it takes inspiration and time away from doing actual pages, then don't worry about doing them! The more pages you finish, the faster it will be done so you can continue with other stories :) but I am so glad to see these new pages! Love it! (it's so inspiring me to get working on Lovelocket!)

Ah, yeah...eventually I'll upload it when I'm done with the first chapter...but I do have the outline done! I wonder if doing an outline first is a good idea or not, but I worry if I don't I'll get sidetracked (got do it all in baby steps).

Question Cafér (Otaku Eternal) | Posted 04/21/12 | Reply
Yes, I use a tablet, but I don't vector in SAI at all. The vector options in SAI is confusing to me, I prefer PS for vectoring.
Question Cafér (Otaku Eternal) | Posted 04/20/12 | Reply
Yeah, SAI is limited, but in a good way. It gives me nicer lineart~
Well, you can't really 'manipulate' screentones when used in a pattern format. They won't change. If a pattern is too small, and my drawing is too big, what I'll only get is a blurred pattern if used in a big scale.
I was just so used to Photoshop already before I discovered Gimp, that it was just annoying to use, having such limited options too.
Screentones, patterns, I think of them as the same thing. Depends on the resolution too. I tried Gimp, but hated it. xDDD
No, it doesn't... SAI is more simpler than Photoshop. I get my screentones from a site that referenced in the description of the cover of Question Cafe.
It got it from here. See if that works? I have a PC, but I heard you have to go an extra step making it work on a MAC. Good luck!
Aw, thank you~~ I use SAI paint tool for lineart, and Photoshop CS3 for text, balloons, and screentone patterns. ^^
Ah, haven't been in the mood to draw the next pages lately~ Probably after my finals in a few weeks, I'll get going making pages again~ >u<

Lombax of Earth (Otaku Eternal) | Posted 01/30/12 | Reply
Thanks; yeah, sometimes, you just can't find everything you need in one program, or one does certain things better than the other (like for me, once I finish coloring the images in Manga Studio, I copy them piece-by-piece into MS Paint because they'll be too small otherwise XD).
Question Cafér (Otaku Eternal) | Posted 01/30/12 | Reply
Don't feel foolish! ^^b I use SAI paint tool for the lineart, and then Photoshop CS3 for tones and speech bubbles and straight lines~ Whenever I work on a page though, I keep on switching back and forth numerously between those two programs~ xDD
There certainly IS a lot of screentone...
Um, I feel kind of foolish for not reading all of the comments, so if someone's already asked you this, I apologize, but do you use Manga Studio by any chance? I have the Debut 3.0 version of that program (and I probably should've splurged on the full version because Debut doesn't have a speech bubble-maker >_< But it's at least good for coloring pictures, like my three newest fanart pieces...).
