Time for chapter 3. This should be another chapter around the same length as the other two. This plus an epilogue should wrap up the first arc.
Obviously I am playing with something a bit different for coloring this chapter (and the last page of the last one)
The watercolor pencils were starting to drive me nuts. I couldn't put much detail or texture into anything, or it would get washed out by the pencil. Secondly I couldn't get it to scan right, so half the time it would just end up looking washed out. Finally, it took forever to do semi-nicely...
I don't want to do a straight cell-shade, because I still feel my pencil-work is my strong suit (I could be wrong) So... I'm trying a compromise. Colors are computer based, (probably something like cell-shading in mechanics), with the textures and shadows coming from pencil.
