#67 Adventure Page 5

You can see the different mediums a little more clearly on this page. Using more than one medium worked well most of the time; I'd combine markers and watercolors again in the future, though I'll probably skip using colored pencils for a while.

#66 Adventure Page 4

COLOR!

When I started coloring I added one more rule: I would color the different sections with different mediums. I colored the water with watercolors, the earth with markers, and the sky (or, in the case of this page, the sun) with colored pencils.

#65 Adventure Page 3

One of the rules I adhered to in this comic was that I didn't allow myself to write out a script beforehand. It worked out alright for this project since it was wordless and loosely structured anyways, but it's not a rule that I'm likely to repeat for a more coherent project. I ended up a few pages short and had to figure out where I could sneak 4 or 5 more pages in to help flesh out the story. Case in point: this was the first page I drew, and was supposed to be the first page of the comic until I added a new beginning and ending.

#64 Adventure Page 2

Most of the pages ended up being one huge panel or a few panels separated by elements of the picture itself. Usually I stick to fairly rigidly ruled panels, so it was interesting that I went to the opposite extreme when my ruler was taken away. (No panels! ANARCHY!)
