The Warm Glow of Success, v. 2


I colored the second Tiffany picture, then spent way too much time fiddling with it, trying to get the image height to 600 pixels high or less. (Original image height: 9600 pixels). Tweaking the word balloons to fit them all in and still be legible was a pain. And then I went and added a bar at the bottom that took it back to 900 pixels or so anyway.

And then, as I was typing this, I thought "I should've made that part vertical and put it along the side."

So of course I had to spend another fifteen minutes fiddling with it to get that done. (I'm not sure if I like the vertical design better or not. So I'm posting thumbnails with links to both.)

I had thought of doing this in a fully-shaded picture, rather than the toon-shading it currently has. But the master file is already a bear to work with and will be much worse if I try to cram more detail in, so I think I'll quit here. It doesn't look bad as is. Much better than the grey-shaded pencil scan.
