My final project for my Visual Storytelling II class. Since the last comic I colored came out pretty poorly, I was determined to make this one awesome and went all out. Part of my coloring technique was actually inspired by the cartoon Batman: The Brave And The Bold—I don’t know if they did this in every episode, but in one I noticed that the characters were consistently shaded with rim lighting no matter where the light source was actually positioned, and it was just the colors that were altered to trick you into thinking they matched the lighting of the scene. I’m really happy with how it came out, though it printed much darker than I would have liked, so that’s something I’ll still have to figure out.
Why is there a tag for “night cheese”, and why have I been searching through it for twenty minutes??
