This is related to my previous painting A Very Strange Place. This is before the protagonist and her cat accidentally get lost in space. 

Any critique is most welcome as I’m still quite new to drawing comics and this is just a test page!

I used my blue lead pencils again and India ink and a brush pen, which I’m not going to use any more because the bristels are far too long. As you can see my lines are all over the place and much too splodgey. So I’m looking forward to a much smaller brush! 

Scanned line-art into Photoshop and tidied it all up and then coloured it in with some colour balance layers etc over the top to finish.

Sketch from today. The idea here is that this is a photo of Lilian and her father from when she was a child with her mother taking the photo. Maybe out on a walk or a picnic.

I saw some old vintage photos of BuzzFeed I think it was and was inspired to use a photo of a man standing on a bridge. Then it just gradually turned into a full picture!
