Spent the morning fussing with shading. Tried a sharp edge and added some effects to a page. Decided to try another with a different brush and a different approach. Played around with the color of the shade as well as the layer opacity. Fiddled with the opacity of the flats layer, too, which helped things pop a little more. I can see myself tweaking this for awhile until it’s where I want it. I’m probably going to be spending more time than I’d like rendering each page but hopefully the results will be worth it. Still haven’t ruled out coloring line art or painting it out completely, though that flies in the face of trying to get ahead on updates. Of course, if getting updates out as quickly as possible was the top priority I’d be doing straight black and white. Heck, it’d just be strips instead of full pages. There has to be some accounting for quality.
