It’s a milestone! Page 100! Only 13 more pages to go! That, and coloring all 113 pages, but you catch the drift.

Seeing as how provides customers the option to print color either on value or standard or premium quality paper, it really is a matter of taste. If you don’t want to make a photo-quality book, then you can go on value paper, which would resemble a comic book the most. Otherwise, you’d have a really heavy book if all the pages were coated and photo quality. Therefore, I’m currently experimenting with colors and half-toning it so that the printer will print LESS ink onto the page and hopefully reducing any warping on their value line of paper. Of course, I haven’t ordered a color value proof yet, so I really don’t know what it’ll look like. I just know that if you order the standard paper line with color, the pages are going to be coated and heavier, much like a photo. And my comic book art isn’t that painterly. So we’ll see.

Instead of just converting the pencils to black, I actually retrace it using GIMP’s Ink Tool. It creates a more comic book look. I also test coloring. What do you guys think?

It doesn’t look like a pro comic book inker, but it is my style. I might have to work on some of the line quality to emphasize shadows and highlights.
