ooohhhhh my god. I had to flip everything in the second two panels (for continuity), from last years crack at this strip. Then I had to go and flip the flopped guy back. For continuity. this means flipping portions of: white rain layer, texture layer, pencils later, clouds layer, yellow highlights. visor highlights. a second yellow highlights layer that was set to multiply. annnd that’s it.
I’d like to pretend that this insight into my “photoshop layering practices” will suffice as a commentary.
BUT WILL IT?
only god knows. only… Jesus Cop.
p.s. ok, i also tweaked the colors, added cloud outlines, erase faded the suit textures a little, lengthened the flopped guys legs a little, made the wrist gizmo’s green hand stand out more. redrew a few tiny details for slightly clearer edge definition. It was a tweaker’s delight.
p.p.s. I counted, and there are only 4 pieces of old artwork left. The next three, which finish off this “it’s raining on the dudes” storyline of great justice. … and then there’s one more family strip I plan to re-purpose. sooo.
scary times ahead. will be interesting to see if stop the daily update, or if the art just slips a bit, or… maybe everything will magically get faster AND BETTER! WOO HOO! time will tell. father time. our all father sublime. of thyme.
the hour is later than you think.
(that last line was lord of the rings movie quote. so really, it might seem stark and important. but really it’s just more random bullshit. because it’s late. and i’m tired)
