I’ve discovered something about my new monitor: it doesn’t like black gradients in Photoshop. Instead of making them a smooth transition from pure black to a dark gray, it makes them look blocky and horrible. Which for me made it tough to work on these past few pages. But at the very least, there wont be any more shadowy people. THANK GOODNESS!

All whining aside, I’m still happy with how these pages are turning out. I’ve been going through the first draft of the first chapter, and it’s easy to see that I’m slowly getting better. Working in comics has definitely moved my art forward. And for that, I’m thankful.

I’ve also discovered I tend to rant and go off on tangents when trying to write at 2:30 in the morning after getting almost no sleep the previous night. Look! Colors! *chase*
