Panel 1: This is supposed to be a shot from on campus, the CIS building on the right, facing the Science Building with the woods over on the left. Without the orangey-sodium lights it'd be pitch black. Panel 2: Top half of the black fill is this Staedtler marker and the rest is regular Pentel Brush Pen. It's so annoying when blacks don't match... You can see the little line where they overlap. Panel 3: oops, forgot to erase. Also, put more ink in the Pentel so it got a lot darker.
Yeah, this isn't a very good one. I've got more, though.
I actually think I pulled off panel 2. What I'd really love to get down is the look of how bright and clear lit interiors are when it's dark outside. It's such an odd look. Everything else is obscured in the darkness, but then there's this spot of depth and clarity where you can just see everything. blah blah blah
Isn't this nice? Anyway, this is one of, if not, my favorite full strip I've drawn. So it's a good place to start. I didn't adjust the scan at all, so that's why the white background is, to me at least, a bit orange. I just don't like the stark white background. When I look at comics in books or drawings on paper, the background isn't pure white. I don't know why that rule magically changes on the internet. I've scanned a number of 3x5 card drawings, so they should be up here daily, more or less.
