How do you feel about my use of PaintTool SAI in my work? 

1,434 deviants said you could draw with a jawbone for all I care, as long as you deliver results
511 deviants said it's fine as it is; this is a nice balance of vector/raster
450 deviants said please use more of it; painting is the way to go!
28 deviants said please use less of it; I want to see Flash art!


Morph Ball Rounds Up The Party by JohnSu

The accompanying "fifth" panel to Beach Suit Samus by JohnSu, because in an early test with my brother, he didn't quite catch what was going on.

Morph Ball Rounds Up The Party by JohnSu
With Smash Brothers' release coming up in two days, I felt compelled to make this comic.

This comic was inspired by an old Metroid manga I read years ago in which Samus had a fascination with round things and turning into a ball. I don't think it's canon, but I liked that bit of nonsense.

Some folks say Toon Link should be wearing his blue crayfish shirt. Maybe? But I really like how uncomfortable he looks in this heat. I am a bad man.

EDIT: Okay, I'm going to integrate that last card with the comic, since it appears to help with peoples' understanding much more.
Peanut Butler, Angela, Sand Witch by JohnSu
Peanut Butler, Angela, Sand Witch
This unlikely trio of young ladies are on a quest to create a culinary masterpiece to bear their names for the generations to come. So far, nothing they've tried has appeared to jell well with their clients. In hopes of finding butter luck elsewhere, they travel far and wide in search of exotic ingredients and sampling local delicacies. Who knows where their future lies, andwich dish will be their ultimate break through? Only time (and I) can tell.

Individual bios!

Samantha, Sand Witch of Flour Desert
Sammy was raised by her grandmother in the bleached wheat dunes. When she came of age, she reluctantly left her grandmother at home (who then wrangled a pig into caring for her in her granddaughter's absence) on a journey to master the dark culinary arts of food alchemy. Though she doesn't like to talk, she also doesn't like to be alone. And so she met a peanut plant.

Hinatsu, Peanut Butler
Sammy thought the peanut plant amusingly human-like in form, and then had the impulse of completing the likeness by enchanting it into person-hood. The new abomination was named "Hinatsu" and offered the job of Butler (which, though traditionally a male occupation, was justified by Hina having more nuts than any man). Hina is a diligent servant and a stickler for details. She is also a big fan of Mr. Peanut, and hopes to meet him in person one day. She also hopes to make a manga about cats one day, too, but she is bad at drawing because she is still just peanuts.

Angela, Cherry Jelly
Angie was the third to join the party. They met at the edge of the desert, where the presence of an extraneous s-shaped creek has transformed it into a dessert. A wild jelly had squirted out of a donut to attack Hina, and Sammy tried to save her by blasting it off of her. However, she hit "cancel" instead of "apply" when trying to switch spells, and so hit the jelly with the same gijinka enchantment that had produced Hina. Whoops. Looks like you've made a new friend! She is very huggy and likes to pick up things and put them in her mouth. There is also the possibility that she has an incomplete digestive system, but I do not like to think about the implications of that.

Peanut Butler / Angie Time by JohnSu

Production Notes:

Originally this was just going to be "Peanut Butler and Jerry," but then when I tried to make a jelly boy, it was too cute, so now it's Angie. Peanut Butler could have been a man, but my I-Want-To-Draw-Cute-Girls sickness was too strong by then. Sorry, ladies - no classily dressed men for you...yet
In the end, I think Angie and Sam were my favorites to draw; sorry Hina. 

I drew this as a vector/line-less exercise because I've found that it's much faster to do things this way. Still not quite as detailed as work with line art, but I think there's still a lot of room for this technique to grow. I'll get there one of these days!

I lose a lot of sleep looking through your gallery.  I also have acquired the strange urge to gnaw my left arm off.  Thanks on both accounts.

Hey! I met you at AX last month. No idea if you remember me, but I was the girl who said I watched you on deviantart many years ago, but haven't been on dA since. I bought two little prints and my friends I was with bought one each as well. Your art is still sooo inspiring, and I love your humor and style. I hope I can see you again at AX! Take care!
JohnSu Featured By Owner Sep 6, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Ahoy! Thanks for coming by my table, and also for dropping by again on dA!

Oh, and also for buying prints! I hope they serve you well, as far as prints can...serve.

Wow. Haven't used dA since 2008, and admittedly back then you were one of the artists I really looked up to-- the art style and the stories they told, all unique. I come back 6 or so years later and not long ago I remembered JohnSu. Looked it up, and it's very good to know that you're still active :D The best part is that your art style has barely changed at all (if anything, it's improved)! Very much comforting yes. Nostalgic yes.
JohnSu Featured By Owner Sep 6, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Hooray! I was afraid of the past tense you were using in the beginning, thinking it was going to end in disappointment.
