working my way backwards - Spread 9 is Todd with a Tack in his Toe, and Umeko's Ulcer Frustration... leading into spread 10 of the Vet's Office with Vince, Wendy and Xander.
I spent far too much time drawing tiny, teeny circles for the road pattern, hours and hours - then I realized, "HEY DUMMY - THIS IS A COMPUTER!" I cloned a region and duplicated it, and filled in the joints with, you guessed it - tiny circles.
in the end, it looks like a Japanese sharkskin box, or sword scabbard, but I'm pleased with the texture and will use it elsewhere.
I'm not sure if I like Todd's color - and if I'm saying that now, that means I'll be changing it. I don't think he pops off the road.
I like the pigeon - he turned out well.
