October greys

Experiment number next in the grayscale shading department! I think this one is turning out rather well for how much time it takes to put it all together. Another change I've made is the font size; after taking a look at some comics that use computer fonts I realized my text is enormous! By making it smaller, I have freed up more space to 1.) draw more stuff and 2.) write more words! So exciting.

I have also begun work on a new facet of the writing! I noticed that my characters--while able to stand on their own, in my humble opinion--didn't necessarily know how to react to each other as individuals. In the same way I don't speak to my mother the way I speak to a professor, dude friend, or lady, I need Dan to react differently to Tim, Tracy, and Jeff, for example. 'Tis where my sights are set, friends, and this ship will not lower its anchor until we crash onto the coral reef of success! 

…or maybe a harbor, I guess

Inking in their footsteps

You may notice on strip #60 a pretty drastic difference in some of the line widths. This is (partly) intentional! See, the art store I go to had this huge sale. I went, and found myself in the brush section. Long story short, Bill Watterson used to use a sable brush to paint Calvin and Hobbes, as did (and do) many other authors. I thought, 'well maybe I should do that! Then I'll really be somethin'.' Well, as you can see... Never quite made up my mind on how I felt about using the brush vs. a crow quill, but I think I'll keep at it the way I was doing it before. As for what to do with that brush, well... you'll see :)
