The lighting was a lot of work. I think the background on panel 1 actually took longer to ink than to color, too. But, all in all, is very shiny, and I rather like it.
Otherwise, I really don’t have a lot to say this time around. : | if you look really close, you can see Fols’ lighter illuminating his hair and such. It’s a detail I’m fairly proud of that gets a bit lost in the smaller version.
Want to see something fun? Compare the first panel here with the first here and see how much I’ve learned in a couple months. Drying my watercolors has led to all sorts of new tricks in a really short length of time. It’s also contributed to each page taking something like 10-12 hours now… But reaction continues being good so I guess it’s worth it. That said, if you haven’t already, take note of and possibly use that new rating thing down there. No login or anything required, and gives me an at-a-glance of what you guys think of things. : )
