News - Starting this October in Japan, Yukito Kishiro’s latest chapter in the Battle Angel Alita (aka GUNNM) saga will continue with GUNNM: Kasei Senki (aka Battle Angel Alita: The Martian War Chronicles) in Kodansha’s “Evening” Magazine. The story will center around Gally (Alita) going to Mars to try to learn more about herself. Since it was just announced in Japan, no official word on an American release yet.

I love Battle Angrl Alita. It was the first manga I really got into and influenced a lot of my art style and writing. What was originally a manga I got into because it had an ending after a mid-length run (I think the original run had 9 volumes) ended up more than doubling it length with a continuation, Last Order. With news of another series coming out, I don’t know. I want to get excited about this, but I’m just feeling fatigued.

Ever since I watched that Art Adams video of of drawing Stirm, I’ve been thinking about my inking technique, which, as of today, mostly consisted of making sure I had a variety of line thickness.

I use Sakura Micron pens, mostly the 02, 05, and 08. I have a Sakura brush pen, but mostly only use it to fill areas.

I’m trying to find inkers that use technical pens (or pen-like results) so that I can study them. I have examples of Mignola, Adams and Mark Morales. What are some other inkers I should check out?

Art Adams draws Storm, Queen of Asgard, presented by Visual Zen Advocate.

Totally envious of his pen control. Also, a great example of how to use technical pens and have line variation.

Inktober is in a few weeks. Super excited. I think I might do themed weeks; try and tell stories or stick with a visual theme.

One illustration I want to do is this phrase: Of all the things Lt. Halley thought she’d find in the derelict spaceship, a mantis dragon was not one of them.
