At long last, it’s here! A couple weeks of tender loving care went into this one.
I shaded the backgrounds with pencil. I’m ambivalent about the effect, though.
Shading the characters ended up being pretty haphazard. In the past I’ve tended to add shading on a new layer, so that my flats remained editable blocks of solid color. But I just went at it with the lasso marquee and the airbrush, and I think overall it looks good. Most of the shading in this one, to my eyes, helps tell the story.
Also, you can buy this T-Shirt
I’m thinking about getting myself one :)
