Nickfury Color Experiment by kurtoons
Nickfury Color Experiment
My daughter has been bugging me to learn FireAlpaca, to replace the antediluvian PhotoShop program I've been using since the Clinton Administration, because eventually I'll be replacing my current computer and I'm not sure that my old PhotoShop will still run on a newer system, even if I can find the disc for it.  Which I'm not sure I can.


I am not liking FireAlpaca a whole lot.  It does not seem to have any way to do the things I want it to.  I miss the Lasso Tool and I don't really get how to use the Magic Wand Tool effectively.  FA strikes me as very useful if you're going to be doing the actual drawing on the computer; but most of what I want it for is stuff that I have drawn on paper, caveman style, and want to color and manipulate on the computer.  I know how to do this with PS; I haven't figured out a good way to do this on FA.

Case in point:  the above experiment.  I'm actually happy with the way it turned out.  It was based off a doodle I drew in my sketchbook.  What I did was lay a layer over the scanned pencil art and trace over it with the mouse.  Then I did the coloring and the background on intermediate layers.  It worked for this little sketch, but I don't see me practically drawing my webcomic this way; not with a mouse, anyway.

United States
In my Secret Identity, I am a Ninja Cartoonist. I livein the Enchanted Land-O-Cheese with my wife, two daughters, two cats, a snake, a couple finches, a lot of fish and a hat-full of ferrets.

Back in the Caveman Days, I used to draw my own comics and sell them out of my backpack. In the early '90s I drew a lot of furry stories for Antarctic Press and Radio Comix. These days I'm drawing a webcomic called Hannibal Tesla Adventure Magazine you can find at Kurtoons Online

I have also done some children's illustration and draw cartoon portraits at local craft events

Current Residence: The Enchanted Land-O-Cheese
Favourite genre of music: Jazz
Favourite cartoon character: It varies
Personal Quote: "All the World's a Stage and Everyone's a Critic." --Mervyn Alquist
Dr. Johnson once said that nobody but a blockhead ever drew nekked cat-babes except for money.  This comes to mind because my sweet thing has been reminding me that I'm not actually making any money off my webcomic (… ).  So maybe I ought to mention that I am always available for commissioned art.  I specialize in furries, but I also do cartoon portraits, gaming sketches, comic book characters, a li'l bit of everything.

Send me a message and let me know what you'd like to draw.
