Added 1 new A* page:Here's a grainy photo of the initial pencils for today's page, now on the back side of the final version:

Not sure why I was drawing it from that boring straight-on side perspective, since I never had it that way in my head. And I can hardly ever bear to draw anything that way, especially action, even though it would make things...a lot easier. =P
 
The Canson "Illustration" paper I've been using this week has been good, I think--makes for much cleaner scans than the Arches watercolor paper, for one thing. And I went over the background here twice and it came out amazingly black and smooth--whenever I tried that with the Arches paper, it warped, big time. And anyway Arches is just a brand of Canson, or something, I dunno; those French are tricky with their papier! But they make it nice. Anyway I'll have to order more of this Illustration stuff; my local art store doesn't have it--it's new-ish or something--so I'll probably just order it from here like I did before--the 18"x24" pad, each of whose pages I can cut into three A* pages.
