At the same time, a few weeks back I got some good news--the book publisher who'd rejected my Black Flag graphic novel pitch contacted me to ask if they could publish the first half of my chapter in a new textbook they are preparing for Spring 2015. They are paying me (a pittance) and I retain all the rights--it's just the first half of my first chapter. But I was greatly encouraged by their interest.
But now I have to finalize the (very unfinished) artwork I sent them almost two years ago. One thing I'm trying to do is add "color" to this b&w comic in a way that looks period-correct (story takes place in 1981). Which for me means Ben-Day dots.
I've found some great tutorials on how to create Ben-Day dots in PhotoShop, but the trick remains getting a look that works. I've resisted doing Ben-Day on the Chubby Cheekers story, but I'm posting two examples of these different "coloring" methods and asking for comments/advice.
Many thanks T.A.G. brethren!
