I took the “which mgcl grl are you?” test in the new MGCL GRL magazine by Mathilde Kitteh that we’re releasing on friday at PEOW - and i was the treasure type. Reserved but with a heart of gold. Use mostly protective spells. This is my test result and my familiars, Robocat and Farrow.
I have a few pens that I almost always use when drawing in photoshop:
1. a brush pen, it gets wider when I press harder (though kinda subtle).
2. A simple pen, fixed size with only slightly variation in pressure
3. A pencil. Slight variation in pressure and opacity with rough edges
I did this to test myself how I approach drawing the same sketch but with different pens and also zoomed in 100% and zoomed out like 50%.
I found it hardest to get comfortable with the brush pen, it tended to not get very intuitive and felt strained.
With my normal pen I felt more intuitive and loose and could go more outside the sketch - this is the best way of drawing for me I think, to “follow” a map but to also change it and add stuff at the same time.
When zoomed out I really liked how it got simplified, I like the pencil feeling in the lines.
I think it gets more of an “illustration” edge to it when I use the simple pen and I get more creative and I render shadows in a different and more fun way (for me to draw at least). This shows in where drawing #1 I didn’t even feel like finishing it, it was more of a chore to get the drawing done, when in #2 and the others it felt more rewarding and exciting to draw.
Just some thoughts of mine, I’ll be gone now.

Náva #2 is finally done. It’s called MYTHOPOEIA and we debuted it on TCAF last weekend. It sold out and people seemed to like it a lot which was fun to see. We’re bringing it to Stockholms Internationella Seriefestival this week and then it will be up for sale online together with a reprint of Náva #1. Risoprinted in black, blue, yellow, purple and teal, and a three color cover.
Swedish comics publishers will be debuting a few new books at TCAF next weekend, including Olle Forsslöf and Mikael Lopez’s Náva #2, about an old lady and two kids captured by Wolf-beings. As they trek through the desert towards the city, they tell each other stories: true, untrue, and somewhere in between.
Hello... I understand Nava #2 might be ready for TCAF. Hypothetically, will you also have #1 or are those out of print forever and ever? Thanks for any response. (Also? Your art is wonderful.)
Yes, Náva #1 will be reprinted and brought to TCAF.
