|Chapter 4 strip: Corinthean War scene
Sketched, inked & colored in SAI, retouched in PhotoShop CS4 • Tools: Wacom Bamboo tablet
This is an exposition shot from the very first scene – very first paragraph, even – of Chapter 4: Memories. It turned out a bit more murky-looking than I anticipated, but I suppose that makes it more realistic. I don’t expect civil wars being bastions of clarity and aesthetics, anyway, so art depicting it might as well reflect it. The hardest parts were the flames and (especially) the smoke, which still doesn’t look right. But considering what it started out looking like, it really ain’t so bad.
