This was the caption for this strip:
When you’ve got deadlines to meet, you can’t let power failures stop you.
This was drawn in Colors 3D with my Nintendo 3DS. It was a very different experience working on such a small screen and not being able to use a lot of photoshop’s helpful toolset. I might upload the panels to my Colors 3D gallery so you can see the process from start to finish.
This actually looks pretty good. It’s amazing what this guy can actually do without “a lot of photoshop’s helpful toolset.” Look at how much life this has compared to what he usually does;
Some people can make the “clean line/clean colors” look work well, like say, The Simpsons. However, I don’t think that works with Andrew Dobson’s style. This looser, more liberal usage of color with limited tools to do so may just be the best thing that could happen for his art.
Not to say that his comics don’t have many other issues that still need work, but this is a step in the right direction. I suppose that when he has less tools at his disposal, forcing him to literally get creative with what he has, it really shows.
I’ll have to remember this in the future.
