For rat hole did you draw in white on a black background

I tried this with the scratch paper before and can't make sense of keeping figures clear with so much negative space

No.

I drew it in black ink in an 8x10 notebook (Carlson paper for ink). I used both a dip pen with Hunt 102 (fine) nib and a Japanese brush pen for larger fill.

However, after it was pretty much finished, I went back with a white Jelly Roll pen and fixed some things.

Citing these fancy tools makes it sound like I knew what I was doing. On the contrary, I was just feeling my way through it the whole time and ended up pulling out nearly everything I owned in my art toolbox.

Scritch-scratch-paint/pause over 3 days.

I have never used scratch board to date.

Thank you! My problem is I can't commit to a schedule at the moment. My time comes in unreliable spurts. The Roper was a fanatic and loose 30 minutes when I was suppose to be doing drywall! If it was intended to be a legit publication, I would never let it go with so many flaws. It would honestly take me weeks of fussing.

I did it. Gonna see what Prince sends me for guidance.

Here's an absent minded ball-point doodle of some primitive huntress I did yesterday. She's got some very indistinct hands and a tad too much ennui, but I liked the physical "weight" of the posture and load.

I take it Prince got back to you? Would be awesome to see your stuff in the collection
He did, and I now have some copies of a couple of the adventures to inspire me & make me feel guilty about not working on.

It's all your fault.

I should be working on NAP. Instead, I decided to draw a troll crawling up out of a hole (the perspective needs some improvements).

I picked up a colored pencil at lunch today, hoping to depict two adventurers sized correctly with respect to each other.

I ended up at a cosplay pool party (Adventures Beneath the Playboy Mansion?).

Even after a few years at this, it's still the case that more than half the time I still don't know WTF I'm trying to do.

Thank you! I have a half dozen notions of how I would redo it to add some more oomph. Someday...
