Cougar Skull Illustration Videos

Posted by Ray Frenden, January 20th, 2012 | Filed under Syndicated | No Comments

I was commissioned to make a simple Cougar Skull illustration. It was a brief enough task to put to video, and I haven’t done that in a long while, so I recorded it. Each video is sped up to only be a few minutes long. Actual illustration time sat between twenty and thirty minutes. Software used was Manga Studio.

Recording the screencast was fun. I decided to record a few doodles and throw them online after. All can be found on my Youtube account.

iPad Comic Layout Template

Frenden iPad Comic Template v2

I made an iPad comic template. It’s grid based and is suitable for digital or analog work (just print it onto bristol if you’re working analog).

It has top and bottom margins set to the same size as potential panel gutter widths. I don’t see the need for them to be any larger. The iPad’s bezel is all margin.
