Hey Zach,First off, another great article. Good job.I have a question, unrelated to this topic though. I've really appreciated the quality of artwork you create and I'd like to get into it a little bit myself. Do you use any kind of drawing pad for your stuff? I've played around in photoshop but I notice that much of your original work has that "touched with a pencil" look to it, if you know what I mean, and I'd love to find out more about how you go about making it. My own work doesn't come out that... I guess authentic would be the word. You can email me, if it's easier, but I'll be watching the comments too. I'm looking forward to finding out more about how you do what you do :-)Chris

Hi Chris,If you're referring to the artwork I use for most of my posts, these are done by professional artists working for Blizzard. I'm not sure what media they use, although I believe Glenn Rane uses Painter. Others use acrylics or oils.If you're referring to the work I do for my webcomic, it has the pencil look because... it's actually done with a pencil. Haha. I'm still very old school that way, although I really need to learn how to use a pen tablet for doing art faster. I use an old, banged up Wacom for other stuff, though I've been practicing with Manga Studio (great application, btw!).Thanks for reading!
