Commission - Sleepover Raid 06
I've mentioned it a few times at different places on the blog, but for those who don't know the reason I haven't been posting these past few days is because I had to take my laptop into the computer hospital and it is currently being worked on. I've been going crazy the past few days without the ability to work on any pictures, and when it became apparent that I would have to wait for a while I decided to work around the problem. I paid the computer guys to relocate my most important files onto an external hard drive, and am currently using my sister's old laptop (the battery is dead so it has to be plugged in to run, it runs incredibly slow by modern standards, and the version of Photoshop is about three behind the one I'm used to). It's an imperfect solution, but at least it allows me to do some work until my computer is fixed. However, because I've had some difficulty working with it like I'm used to, I'm going to hold off on any new commission or comic work for the time being. I don't want to do those sorts of projects under standards until i can be confident in the quality of the final product, so instead expect some more small standalone pics for the time being. Better than nothing, right?
Moving on to this page. I'm really happy with how the new page turned out. I had some fun trying out a few more positions in the orgy, since this is the last page where the action continues like it has (there's more sex to come, but it will be very different from what we've seen so far). I also like how Helen looks in shadow, though that's more about my own insecurities with using different lighting.
Originally the bottom few panels took up much more of the page space, but while I was working I realized I had planned some very complex panels to be crammed into a tiny space, so I re-arranged the page to make them slightly more balanced. The best panels are still smaller than I would like, but I'm much happier with this layout than what I had originally sent to City Hunter.
And, because I'm such a nice guy, here's a larger version of the fourth panel:
