Three Gold Thieves!

The costume cruise continues, and the leader of our evil trio reveals some details of their plan.

 For those who are interested in such things, here are my blue line "pencils" (they're digital, so no real graphite involved) for this Sunday strip. Lettering is digital ("Comiccrazy" by ComicCraft) -- and all this is done in Manga Studio. The letters are quite large due to the tiny size some papers print the strip. This is printed out for inking by hand. 

 Here it is inked (on bristol board with real ink) and scanned, with the blue dropped out.

And this is the color plate. The color is all done in Photoshop. Unlike comic book coloring, which would run some color under the black areas for a richer black, we tend to avoid that -- some technicality regarding the printing presses, I'm told.

That's it for this week's strip. Hope you enjoyed the look at the process.
