Molly Blue 1 Watercolor

By cloudmonet
Okay, I had seven pages of comic, but how am I going to present them? In color, obviously. This is the internet. Black and white was largely preferable due to the cost of color printing. The internet equivalent, file size, actually tends to be larger for black and white drawings with shading and so forth. All my fanart was colored digitally, but hey, I have watercolor sets and I know how to use them, so I thought I'd try painting page 1, just to see if it was even possible. And here's that painting, complete with ruler-drawn panels and freehand word balloons, with the text newly filled in.

This was not going to be practical, clearly. It takes too long, and there's no easy analog way to fix mistakes. Could you imagine me watercoloring the rooms in the Mellville mansion, or the library in King Kasima's buried castle, or any number of other intricate backgrounds? 

Compare to: rough pencil 1. cloudmonet.deviantart.com/art/…
and as page 1 is now:  cloudmonet.deviantart.com/art/…
