Comic for Monday 04/26/10
Welcome to “Portraits Week”! I’ve been playing around with Photoshop painting over the last few weeks and have decided to run some of my projects this week while I gear up to work on the next Sluggy Freelance book. This Sasha portrait is my second attempt. You’ll see my first attempt on Friday. I 'painted' on top of a pencil sketch that I ran on the site but I don’t have the link to that sketch handy. I hope someone will put the link in the reactions forums.

This is my third attempt at Photoshop painting. I think this came out better than the Sasha portrait, but something about the squareness of the head makes Aylee less feminine than I had wanted. I also think the glowing eyes could have been handled in a more sophisticated way. Still, every time I do one of these, I'm learning more about the painting process. And that's worth the journey no matter the results. Again, this was from a pencil sketch somewhere on the site, and I hope someone will put the link in the reactions forums.
