Resident Evil Comic Page + Illustration Update

I finally got some time in between projects to enjoy some PS3 gaming. Resident Evil 5 was my most recent adventure and I absolutely love that game. I decided to do a 3-4 page comic based on the gameplay and the image above is the first of the set. 

I also recently acquired the Wacom Intuos 4 tablet.  While it took me half a day to get used to the new, more textured and natural feeling of the surface, it's a huge improvement despite the quick tip wear. The drawing feels so much more natural and the texture truly feels like paper at times, especially after using the slicker surface of older models for so many years. 

Below is a panel showing the inks using my new favorite custom chisel brush. It really feels like drawing with a marker. :) I highly recommend the new tablet if you do most of your work digitally.

Nice work man! Glad to hear you finally had some down time. I like the chisel approach. If you ever think about integrating that into your sketchbooks you've gotta try the Pilot Parallels. Amazing calligraphy pens! Ashley Wood uses them quite a bit as well. I let you try mine next time we hang out. Good work dude!

Dude, I am having a hard time finding information about how to MAKE a custom brush that will emulate drawing with a chisel-point marker. If you have settings to share, I'd be deeply grateful for the help. I'm currently using an Intuos5 with Photoshop CS5. And BTW, yer drawing RAWKS.
