In all seriousness, I’ve found a clean and orderly environment is helpful before working on a big assignment. Taking care of all the little things before sitting down and putting in several hours of writing can do wonders for anxiety and focus. Putting off a paper to draw comics is another story entirely.
I was experimenting with contrast in this comic, and I think the effect is pretty successful. I wanted a few solid blocks of ink, and I think it has the benefit of helping the eye more easily distinguish different elements in each panel. It was fun to focus in on the little details that really improve the overall effect of the comic, even if they go unnoticed.
Well, back to work!
