original_post:_12/3/2001_______________ Around this time I started using a lot more greyscale and playing around with texture. You can see in this strip there's a gradient combined with a noise filter. The texture stuff didn't stick around much. It was also a mistake to try to fit five panels into the four panel size layout. It would be okay, but there's too much text, too much exposition. Still, I like this type of mysterious stuff going on where the main character doesn't know but the reader knows that there's definitely more going on than we think.
