You can REALLY see the pattern brushes in this strip. The blanket came out really well. It took me about 1/2 to make both the border and inside patterns and now they’ll take me seconds to put in a panel.
I’m messing around with Pattern Brushes in Manga Studio more. It makes it so I can add some pretty sophisticated patterns to clothing without being overly labor intensive, and since it’s drawn by me it doesn’t clash with the rest of the art like it did in the very early strips when I was just overlaying actual patterns (plus no copyright issues).
