The Future - REDUX
I straightened some stuff, as suggested by a penciljack member.
What it's like to post art online.
Sketched with red bic pen. Inked with black bic pen. Took the red away using several techniques.

I think I need to take my youtube video down, because that trick I figured out did NOT work out.

Colored in GIMP.

Lettered and paneled in Inkscape.

Both open source (free) software.

I was pleased with the results, although I hope the funny to pretentious ratio is more towards the former rather than that latter.
I hit a wall, but I'm liking the ease and tweakability of using the simple pencil tool auto color fill style. It's a lot less work to color. So it saves like 40% of the work. And it doesn't look too bad. So my style is continuing to devolve. 
It's not that hard. It usually takes 3 hours on a weekend. Usually a movie and a half. But I'm trying to eventually update a comic every week. That way, 52 weeks can turn into 2 1/2 comics a year. Way better than my 1 comic in 33 year track record I have. I can't believe 2007 is 6 years ago. But I encourage everyone to color a sketch every week. It really is a neat obtainable goal to have. Do it, people. Gimp is free.
