The How of BirdBreath

BirdBreath is a work in progress and a continual learning experience. It took over four months of experimenting to determine a basic way to create BirdBreath.

As a UNIX system administrator for a publishing department, I was familiar with some techniques and graphic software they used.

I use a WACOM Cintiq 22HD pen display to draw the sketch and cartoon directly on the screen into Photoshop. It's fast and very intuitive. I also utilizie a template system, courtesy of Wiley Miller, creator of the syndicated cartoon Non Sequitur.

I am no commercial artist. There are many different methods used for cartoons and mine is definitely not standard. Feel free to ask anything you like and I will try my best to give you an honest answer.
