Whenever I finish a story on my webcomic, I like to give myself a breather. This typically takes the form of non- story art after… “posters” etc. So far I haven’t missed an update in three years.

In terms of quality, it may lead to something I’m not terribly happy with. I have a couple of recent pages like that, usually penciled, inked and colored the day before posting. I feel my best work comes from a period where I have what they call a “buffer” in the postings. I will often tweak the page in the interim between scheduling the entry in wordpress and when the comic posts. The tweaks could take the form of redrawing a hand, or completely redoing a panel I’m not happy with.

Long story short, the period after a story is usually intended to restore my comic buffer, and therefore, the balance of the universe.

This art was inked with a #2 brush and micron pens. I go back and forth between the brush and pens.

it’s an eternal struggle. Okay… not really. But both have their positives and negatives.
