I use Adobe Photoshop CS. I use the brush tool. My work is usually never smaller that 300 dpi. Lastly, the secret is...

Wacom tablet. It's pressure sensitive. I have an Intuos 3, which is pretty pricey. You can find them here:

You can use Illustrator (with the Wacom), but for some reason I'm too neurotic trying to get the line placement proper, so I went with PS.

Heh...

I have to say that you've given me a complement that you might not realize. I've never worked professonally in comics. I've worked with a few friends on amature stuff. So thanks for thinking my stuff was at a pro level!!

KEEP DOING WHAT YOU ARE DOING BY HAND!!! Learn to control the tools of the trade. Learn color theory. Learn art history. Practice, practice, practice!!! Put the computer away and get some water colors or even acrylic and learn to really paint - then use the computer as an extension of what you are doing, never as as and end to it's means.

As for getting work... That's a tough one that no one has every really answered. It's a lot of hard work and somehow mixed magically into the process is meeting the right people at the right time. Conventions are good, but have your stuff together. Do a Google search to look for a few articles about how to put a portfolio together and show it. Get work at indies first, then after you get published, look to move to the Big Three.

Lastly, expand your abilities to be able to do other types of art. Don't limit yourself to just a "comic book" style. Some of the top comic book artist have and currently do other forms of art. Book covers, adds, advertisements, illustration, portraits, cartoons, STORY BOARDS (big $$$ in this - even Neal Adams said so) etc. This way, as you are trying to get your start in doing what you want, you won't starve to death waiting for that big break. You'll be doing work and expanding your tallents and abilities.

Check out one of my favorite comic book artists web sites here:

Home boy had MAD illustration skills and has marketed himself to a place where he is doing a bunch of different stuff.

That's it. Rant over.

umm... well your invisible woman really caught my eye, the lines were so neat... just love 'em =)

i'm also workin' with my friends here for comic werks at small press there in the states too... but nowadays, its like from pencil sketches to digital paint... AARGH... no job for fahkin' inker! so thats why i learn colorin' right now... haha...

'n ofcourse i think every comic artist always have other job like designing or makin' storyboards, thats what i do for a livin' here... i just wanted a different atmosphere... 'n since i was born in the state ( 'n that makes me a US citizen, cool... ) the best choice is to go there rather than like europe or japan ofcourse :D, just didn't know where to go for a job =)
