From the latest page in my new online comic (click the link above) — this one’s moving us into the central mystery of the story. It’s pen and ink and watercolour as are the other pages, but I added some coloured pencil to smooth out the background colours — which looked great on the paper, but when I scanned them, the coloured pencil needed smoothing out, so I did that digitally. Sheesh! I have heard about a technique to correct the effect which involves melding two scans together; I’ll let you all know how it works after I’ve tried that.
I won’t always be sharing each update on this page after it gets going, but you can subscribe to Mermaid Music either by the WordPress “follow” button or by e-mail. It’s a separate blog from this one; I had to set up a new one so I could use Panels, WordPress.com’s comic theme. I post the comic once a week (at this point; I may speed up as I get into the swing of things), and may post Mermaid Music related posts once a week or so on that site.
Karen you are the inspirational artist I’ve been looking for.
Thank you for doing this. Brilliant work.
Wow, thanks very much, Geoff, I’m glad you like my work! Do you make comics?
