Here’s a peek at the first page of The Possum, issue #5 which is scheduled to go to the printers at the end of May, and should be ready to purchase around the middle of July! Let me know what you think. I find I struggle when it comes to laying down the grey tones. I always flop back and forth from thinking they’re too contrasty, to too muddy.
Update: I’ve adjusted some of the tones to make this page lighter since I first posted it. Comparing it to pages from issue #4, I realized that my new monitor is a lot lighter than what the pages will come out printed as, so I made some adjustments. That’s the thing I find tricky with tones, because each comic has been a bit of a surprise so far when I see it in print because usually the grey tones come out darker or lighter than I expect. One day I’ll get it right.
