I hope everyone had a great 4th! Fireworks are still going off in my neighborhood; I'm sure they'll continue at least for another week.
I have a comic concept underworks... soon there will be character sketches and buildings/environments drawn up. So keep an eye out for it, especially anyone who had to go to Catholic school and didn't so much like it.. more to be revealed soon.
In the meantime, here's my first actual illustration using Painter X to color it. Not too experimental with Painter, but I'm still getting my footing and basic understanding of the program down. If anyone has any good brushes or Painter tips in general, I am all ears.
