The Programming Pill

Another glorious Footle invention: the Programming Pill! If it was available, I’m sure folks would buy it, despite any side-effects.

Take a look at the first draft (unused) panel #4 for today’s strip.

Unused panel4 102913 strip

Today’s comic marks the first time I’ve gone directly from digital pencils to colors. I made sure my pencil lines were tight in Manga Studio Pro, and only had to do a few minimal clean-ups to do before bringing the work over to Photoshop for coloring. This wound up saving me at least an hour. Given the more complicated backgrounds for this strip, I’ll take whatever time-savings I can get.

I’ll see if I can work up a Halloween edition PC Weenies strip for Thursday…

stay ‘tooned,

    Does it also do paradigms? What about reading crappy code? :-D

Tell me what you think!
