Touhou 4koma - Cirno

The beloved tomboyish girl. I guess people coming here won't recognise it, but this is taken from Cirno's profile story about her being eaten by a giant frog and then freezing it from the inside to escape. Not sure the joke works in 4koma format...

Did this with a timer running to make myself go quickly, ended up pretty much as I said yesterday. 1 hour for sketching, 90 min for lineart (panel 3 was the only complex thing anyway) and under 1 hour for tones. The big difference was that there was only 30 minutes of timewasting in there. This is the first comic I finished in one night~

Touhou 4koma - PCB #1

Something (probably Photoshop) came very close to deleting this just as soon as I'd finished... I wound up spending all evening undeleting a 99% done version. Doggedness triumphs over poor technology once again~

Tried laying out the text before the art, but it doesn't seem to work too well. Quite like the joke though. Took too long, again... I was hoping to produce one of these a day, but 6 in 3 weeks is a joke.

If I add up the time, its something like:
1 hour sketching
2+ hours for lineart (expanded to 4 or 5 due to MSN and web browsing)
1 hour for tone

Not impossible in an evening.

SD Vader vs Obi

Probably one of the more famous scenes from the first movie...
