Animal Nuz comic 193 by Eric Lewis panel 3 ink only

Animal Nuz comic strips all start with pencil drawing, like this:

Animal Nuz 193 by Eric lewis panel 1 pencil

Animal Nuz 193 by Eric lewis panel 2 pencil

Animal Nuz 193 by Eric lewis panel 3 pencil

Animal Nuz 193 by Eric lewis panel 4 pencil

Time for the inking! Now I will ink over the pencil, using a light box, so I can use a fresh piece of paper. This usually takes between 1.5 to 2 hours. Please check back in around 3pm ET today to see how the inking process went.

Then I'll scan the inked cartoon into my computer and color it in Photoshop! The coloring also takes somewhere between 1.5 and 2 hours, so the completed strip will be ready around 5pm ET. Please check back in!

Feel free to ask me any questions you may have about the Nuz process!

Big h/t to HoundDog for suggesting I post a "making of" edition of the Nuz! <3

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
