This was fun. Found a beat-up sketch I made of a proposed comic-book character, rescued it via scan and then added color. Yeah, this is from the epic sci-fi pirate tale that I wrote a massive outline for. Think “Doctor Who” crossed with “The Truman Show” crossed with “The Crimson Pirate” crossed with “Foundation.” Pen-and-ink in 1977, color added in 2010. No one can say I work too fast. In case you’re wondering about how the spatter effect was done, it’s a fairly simple PhotoShop trick, but it starts out with a straw full of India Ink being blown onto a Bristol board.
