Not sure I can help you there, besides using them less? I find myself doing that and relying more on erasing or painting over. Not sure that will help you, but I seem to do most things the long way I guess
Asdfghjkl, can't believe I found you on deviantart just by random o.o And I bought this issue yesterday. It's rather expensive here in Sweden though, but I buy it anyways all the time. Big fan of your work.
