The first page of The Legendary Sisters of the Laughing Doggebi begins at night during a torrential rain. So I've been doing studies on how exactly I want to render rain. Here are my first five attempts in order from left to right.

All of these look fantastic. Each has its own emotional touch, which is nice. I like the idea of using different renderings of the same weather for different effects (hell, we do it in movies all the time).

I never did find a style that I really liked. I think I've been all over the place with my rain stylistically. Hopefully it just bothers me a lot more than everyone else.

As one artist to another, I will bet good money it does! Your art is great. Also, I've started reading Sisters. Because I -needed- another thing to devour my time ;)

I think these all came out well but if I had to pick out the ones I thought stood out more than the others I'd hafta go with either the leftmost panel or the second from the right. :) Well done!

Thanks for commenting! It's always helpful.

Actually, they all look equally good. You could use different approaches in different panels of a page to give the impression of rain coming in at different angles and intensities (as it does in real life).

Thanks so much for taking the time to comment. Basically the prologue of The Legendary Sisters of the Laughing Doggebi alternates between the narrative time and a flashback to an incident that happened earlier. I'm using rain to show the time transition between flashback and "present" tense.
