A bee! I love bees. Seriously. One of the nicest things about this year is seeing quite a few bees in the neighbourhood.
This was painted using Photoshop, though I did the pencils and inks in Manga Studio EX 4. Manga Studio in particular is a program I've really come around to. I never thought I'd get comfortable drawing and inking digitally, but over the past year I've really become a convert. It's an amazingly intuitive program and I've become increasingly comfortable working this way. And it is far, far faster than working traditional. When it comes to making comics, that's a major plus.
