Just some proof I’m still working!

Gee, I’m slow in my old age. (What was my excuse before?) I’m pretty sure most of my classmates will have completed comic books tonight. I’ve done the finished artwork on 2 1/2 pages, have drawn up to page 6, and still have to draw pages 7 and 8. Oh, and I guess I have to draw a cover. Should be easy to do in 2 weeks, as long as I stop getting distracted by shiny objects.
I know everyone’s sick of looking at the same handful of panels, but I’m still experimenting with ink. I liked the look of my Elmo cartoon yesterday, which was done with my Kuretake brush pen. Its softness lends itself to looser, thicker lines, so even if I’m tracing a pencil drawing, it’s bound to feel less stiff. There’s still a part of me that wants to get that smooth crowquill look of, say, Blondie or Pogo, but at my current skill level I should probably either go for the looser look, or give up and ink on the computer.
