Molly Blue 32, Hanatoa

By cloudmonet
And at last, Molly and William reach Hanatoa. I borrowed the style of the houses and trees from some real places on Hawaii. I like the way the closeup in the first panel came out, too. 

I considered drawing a wide view of Hanatoa as we approached it, but couldn't come up with anything that looked inspiring.

Some real towns are like that anyway. You can't see them coming because of trees or hills or something. It's just like, over the bridge and there you are, surrounded by houses. Considering the approach was along a coastal road lined with trees and occasionally cliffs, I decided a wide view was improbable. Now if we were approaching on a ship, or driving down from the mountain, a wide view would be required.

Note added, Jan 18, 2009: There is a nice overview of the other end of Hanatoa on page 77. cloudmonet.deviantart.com/art/…

I can vouch for that as I'm from Hawaii.
