Thread: Question about art tech in VG Cats and PA

  1. Question about art tech in VG Cats and PA

    OK, I have recently discovered the greatness that is VG Cats. I like it much better than Penny Arcade, the writing generally has more effort IMHO. I am wondering though, how are these respective strips drawn? Are they hand drawn on paper then scanned into a Mac program with digital ink layered over or what?

    I don't know about VG Cats but I'm pretty sure PA is drawn on a tablet and edited in photoshop.

    There are no rules, only consequences.

  3. I'm pretty sure that PA is drawn on paper and scanned in. I think I saw that in a breakdown of how an illustration was done, or something.

    But in any case, you really can't tell anything for sure unless you hear from the artist themselves, but my guess would be tablet for VG Cats. Just because.

    Gabe has says numerous times that he does a sketch on paper and scans it in. After this he uses a Wacom tablet to ink the lines by making an overlaid layer set to multiply.
    Gabe released a video of him inking his pencil sketch using his wacom tablet. He does not draw the entire thing from scratch with his tablet.

  5. ha. I actually went to the misc. section to see if they had anything like that there.


    ... but once I got there, I didn't click on any of the links.

  7. Thanks for the info, guys!

    Since food and games have higher priority, it'll be about a decade until a get a tablet PC.

    You should take out a loan. From what I've seen, they're better than owning a car.
