So this was supposed to be a real quick one panel transition into the next story, but things got away from me. First off, I drew a considerable amount only to have photoshop freeze on me and I lost everything. So, I started over, and maybe it was a good thing, because I had a better grasp on what I was doing and was able to make improvements.
That background was the part that took far longer than I wanted, simply because I just kept going with it. I would think, “hmmm, needs something else,” and then add some textures or gradients, or add more layers of color in the sky. My only regret is not adding lots of lens flare filters.
