The past week I've been having a tough time staying awake. I would get ten hours sleep the night before and still pass out around 2 in the afternoon. I've continued to work, although it's been challenging. I had some more dental work done a couple weeks ago and I expected soreness, but the pain got worse and I got back into the dentist yesterday morning. I don't know if she was certain at the time, but I thought the one tooth she hadn't filled because she wanted to crown it had become infected and she did prescribe me an antibiotic. I've started taking it, along with prescription quantities of ibuprofen, and then yesterday evening the lymph nodes under that jaw were a little swollen, so I think that's confirmation of an infection.

I'm continuing to work despite still being in a fair amount of pain. Trying to get another webcomic review out today as well as working on a patron bonus comic for Patreon and I probably should also start working on the next page of Hellbent as well, since tomorrow will have been a week since the last update, and the bonus comic is 4-pages, which means there's no way I'm getting it done between now and then.

:new: Immediately after posting this journal, I had to run a couple errands in the cold. The tooth infection got way worse and despite my dislike of opioids, I took a Hydrocodone when I got home... It helped with the pain, although not very much, and it made me dizzy and nauseated. The long and the short of it is the pain after the errands took me completely out yesterday and I got no work done (after posting this journal about how I was trying to work through it) :ohmygod: ... so the next page will be delayed.

In the meantime, if you haven't seen it yet, here's a YouTube tutorial video I made about how to save time inking and coloring by using vector layers in Manga Studio. If you keep up with Woohooligan, there are a couple of examples of this in the latest page, in Amity's hair while she's drinking and her tears in the last panel.

Seems like everyone is getting sick! I recovered not too long ago... It's the darn weather changes!
Other than that, interesting process on how you color your comics with vectors. However I don't think I would dare try vectoring my comics lol

LOL... Well if you've got Manga Studio 5, vectoring is pretty easy and it makes correcting mistakes easier.

I had ongoing dental issues, so I don't think my sick was weather related, but thanks. :hug:

I think I'd try vectoring more if I had Manga Studio 5... I got Illustrator and that still frustrates me

:nod: I don't blame you. I'm a decent hand at illustrator but there are a lot of things that are really confusing in it, like how to change opacity took me a bit to figure out.
