below is the same page without the blurred first panel, I cant decide which panel I like better. I added the tones and paper quality digitally. I did this because I was too afraid of ruining the original page, but now that I am fairly happy with this result. I can continue with my original Idea and add washes to the original. I hope that this entire comic will be done with as little digital help as possible. I really want to build my confidence in washes and brush & ink. There is something so beautiful about the old ways in cartoon art. anyhoo.
GO FORTH AND NDVR!
