Origins of the Rodbearer – Part 9

Oy. The scanner liked this one about as much as you probably enjoy stepping in a present left by a neighborhood animal.

Needless to say, this one underwent extensive digital editing. It’s good practice, I guess, but don’t expect to see stuff like this so often. It doesn’t work so well when you have speech bubbles with the words and such drawn right on to the paper already, and doing otherwise leads to less than satisfactory results. I had no choice but to go the extra mile this time, though. It was just too darn light! You couldn’t even make out half of the shading (thus the subtle digital gradient in panel 1 on the last row. That used to be pencil, but, alas, it didn’t come out!).

It might all be due to the fact that I started scanning in greyscale instead of multi-scan. That means no color, but for now there isn’t any. My scanner has some issue with multi-scan where it thinks it has to rotate everything by a random number of degrees for me and crop off half of what I want… usually the important half. That having been said, HamstaPowah may or may not be in color once the flashback is over with. That’s all up to my free time and the scanner. I’m barely staying on time as it is, for some reason…
