I used that flat pencil for the top two sketches and I love it very much. I inked the bottom 2/3 of the page. Came out okay for me, tho I blargeled poor Hazz.
Gettin the hang of colorin in GIMP. I think I like it better than Photoshop, to be honest.
First note: People in the lunch room are getting used to me sketching and will hold themselves in strange poses for me while continuing on with their normal conversations.
Second note: Ashlinne came out well this week.
Last note: I haven't read Phil Foglio's stuff since the eighties, when he illustrated one of Robert Aspirin's "Myth" books. (I should read Girl Genius, but I just haven't gotten around to it.) But damned if that ain't some Foglio wickedness peeping out of Ashlinne's grin this sketch. Weird. Props to you, sensei Phil.
