One Hundred?!

Oh wow, one hundred fans - and that doesn't even include everyone that isn't a member of SJ!

THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH YOU GUYS ARE AWESOME. I've been getting some wonderful encouragement both here and on other sites ... and also a recurring question about how I do the comic, which I thought I'd take a mo to answer ^_^

The textured background is what most people are curious about - it's actually just a really old A5 school book that wasn't written in, so I scanned the pages and use them as a base (screened at a lower opacity over a flat brown base in Photoshop). I then work over that with a sketch, and ink with an angled brush in a feeble attempt to resemble a nib pen's strokes XD Oh, I always do the lettering before inking the art, both the handwritten and computer ones. After that I add some flat colour and the dot tones, again on screened layers. Any other embellishments like the tea stains (which are actually from a handy set of Photoshop brushes) go on last.

And thassabout it! ^.^ In a nutshell, it's done from start to finish in Photoshop CS4. Saves me a bundle in material costs!! Bwahaha.

Also might I add: I've drawn two animals so far in this comic. That's more than in any other comic I've drawn pfft ._. Animals are tough, don'cha know!

I just realised
That I was right. It was a sinsiter plan by someone with a deep understanding of her psychology.

I just didn't expect it to be her employer.

Well done for predicting the evil super-sub-plot XD Haha.
