Foot Power!

Foot Power!

I don’t advocating attacking cops but when a bad cop gets his, it’s satisfying. Plus he was attacked by a foot of its own volition.

An interior page from Apocalyptigirl, where you can’t really see the texture but damn the colors are nice, no?

This page took awhile and guess what? I tried a few new techniques. The paper texture is gone, replaced by a textured halftone (thanks to this tutorial). This was inspired by Andrew Maclean’s texture & coloring in Apocalyptigirl (ref link, check one of its pages to the right).

I like the art in it so much that I considered coloring like it too. I couldn’t tell if it was analog, or digital watercolor with a canvas texture. So I asked & got an answer straight from the horse’s mouth:

So guess who tried shading using a digital watercolor brush even though he’s never cel shaded a single thing, like ever? That didn’t go so well, which is why you don’t see any shading anywhere – except on the kicked cop because I felt momentarily inspired.

Glad this page is done, though, it’s taken long enough. I dig the colors & texture. And I learned how to make things glow.

Maybe for the next page I won’t take forever and I’ll draw some backgrounds. And I wouldn’t be surprised if the next page again looks stylistically different from all the ones before it!

Hi, I’m Arp! I make comics and write about life as an Indian-American with late-diagnosis ADHD. I’m a self-taught and self-employed creator so I write a lot about art, learning, and entrepreneurial stuff that I’ve picked up along the way.

My stories are kinda weird, because that’s just how I am. My formative influences are Indian mythology, Batman, Tintin, 70s Bollywood, Ray Harryhausen, and Monty Python. There’s no way anything normal could come out of that, right?
