Hey everyone, welcome back to Average Joe!
So…as you may have noticed I had a little play around with the colour scheme in the background of today’s comic! One of the problems that comes with self-teaching photoshop as you’re trying to complete a comic which is updating the next day/later that night, is that a lot of the time I don’t really know what I’m doing with the program – or even it’s full functionality. And this week, when I decided I wanted to do a nice sunset, I discovered there was such a thing as gradients! Hurrah!
For a first attempt, it hopefully gets the idea of the colour change you get during a brilliant orange sunset – the type that seems to light the entire sky on fire. It’s certainly given me some new tools to play around with in the future, though I might try and get a little more familiar with the way they work before the next time I get my heart set on a particular way I want the strip to look
It was also a bit of a challenge for me to do the perspective in panel 1 – I think it came off ok, but you always learn the trick that would make the whole process easier right at the end of drawing something new, don’t you? The next time should be easier!
Hope you’ve enjoyed something a bit different though; and hopefully you got a bit of a giggle out of it! Don’t forget to tune in again on Sunday for the last strip of this little mini-arc about Joe’s flying ability!
See you then, Averagadors!
