roroodle-doodle asked: (I went in like 35 pages to check if this's been asked and then the anxiety got to be too much) Madeleine, how do you deal with the crippling fear of one of your comic ideas, that you've kept in your notebook for awhile, has been done or is being done and you're stuck because you really wanna draw it but also don't wanna be accused of stealing someone else's idea? ('Cuz I saw two tumblr posts today with similar enough comic premise ideas that I have in my notebook and it's freaking me out.)
First-every joke has been done before!!! if you try hard enough you can pull parallels and similarities in ANY story!!
the way to overcome the fear is to just post it and not look at tumblr! have fun while doing it- do it for yourself!

yukiookami29 asked: hi madeleine, i have a question for you as an artist. i consider myself ok with using 0.3mm and 0.5mm pencils for all my art, which is mostly just character designs for role play and elder scrolls fanart. however, i'd like to improve my skills, especially in inking and coloring and i'm not sure where to start. i'd like to eventually have a drawing tablet, but don't want to waste money if its not practical. i'm a full time medical employee, so i dont have time to take classes.
As long as you have access to the internet and set aside some time for drawing I’m sure you can improve! Here are some things that might help you out:
Figuring out what tools to use can be daunting- don’t worry! A lot of artists say which tools they use for certain work, it’s up to you to decide if you want to try them- these blogs find out which tools they are-
The way I found my favorite inking tools was to save up money and order as many random pens from http://www.jetpens.com - it was like a grab bag ever couple months until I found the perfect one for me!
As for skills:
Look up Andrew Loomis Art Books- they are all free pdfs online and excellent for learning techniques!
Use http://artists.pixelovely.com/practice-tools/figure-drawing/ to practice your figure drawing skills
If you want to learn another medium- watercolor, acrylic, marker- go to http://www.deviantart.com and search for a tutorial! (yes it can be a weird place but there are so many good tutorials!!!)
and last but not least- check out your library or bookstore if there are any instructional art books! Try everything!
Anonymous asked: Can you spread your toes and pick up stuff with them ?
i don’t pick anything up i look at stuff until i don’t want it anymore i’m lazy
Anonymous asked: Do you play many video games?
I usually play one at a time
Anonymous asked: What apps do you use on your ipad for your comics? Also do you use a stylus?
Adobe Ideas, Brushes, Genius Scan & sometimes I use a stylus
Anonymous asked: Hi Madeleine, I need your advice please. Between a wacom and an iPad, what would you choose ? There are some really neat apps for the iPads, but a wacom seems much more professional. I'd use it more for personal drawings and such. Thanks ! x
It depends on what kind of art you do and what your process is or what process you are trying to learn.
My iPad acts as a scanner,drawing & reference tool.The only downside is it doesn’t offer high res files yet. But I regularly scan my comics with it and ink it digitally~
The wacom is an industry standard, but there are other models out there giving it good competition- I hear good things about Monoprice tablets & they won’t hurt your wallet too much.
Being a professional isn’t so much about the tool itself, a professional can make any tool work for them regardless of what it is!
No matter what you decide to get, make it work for you and learn everything you can about it!
