Things Blue Mages say
- Draw. Go.
- In response, Counterspell
- It has Flying. You can’t block it.
- It’s unblockable. Just plain unblockable.
- I draw my deck out and cast everything.
- No, you can’t have that.
- Actually, I’ll take control of that. Forever.
- Yeah, that goes through.
- Mmm, bounce that.
- Before you declare attackers, I’ll tap all your guys.
- I think Snapcaster Mage was a reasonable card.
- Blue has the weakest creatures in the game.
- I mill you for a lot.
- Then I exile your graveyard.
- I really like Jace…
- …but he was never the same since Mindsculptor.
Reblog if you’re guilty of saying any variant of these.
I am the blue mage your friends warned you about.
My girlfriend got her cosmetology license and is now going back to school to become an instructor. I am proud of her for doing that! And on that note this comic is actually based on a true story. She does have to make a lesson plan and she is doing it about Magic: The Gathering. I am so inlove with my geek/gamer girlfriend.
This time around I experimented with a different digital technique. I did the usual steps: traditional drawing and inking, scan it, pull it into photoshop, color in sketchbook pro 6. But I skipped the Illustrator Live Trace stage. I don’t think I will do that again. Smooth lines totally win. But I do like playing with tumblr’s way of displaying photos for paneling. Then the reader has the option to make each panel larger so they can read it better or see the image more clearly.
I am becoming comfortable with some of my old influences again and it feels good. I love anime and manga because of how expressive the characters can be. I really shouldn’t hide that under the rug just because some people don’t think of anime or manga as “real art” or whatever or because some people poke fun at me for it. That’s never really been me so it’ll be easy to tune them out.
I am so excited to get started in school.
