May 1st, 2005 - sunday

Here's the Copper comic for May 2005. This one took a little longer than usual. It did feel good going back to using only a couple of layers, though. On the last two strips, I separated everything on layers, making the files enormous and a bit hard to work with. For this one, I painted only on one layer, and did the title and a couple of the details on separate layers. I get a lot of people asking me what I use to color Copper, and many of them assume it's vector. It's actually a couple of very basic Photoshop tools: the hard round paint brush set at 100 percent opacity, the paint bucket, and the magic wand. That's pretty much it. While I use a lot of fancy custom brushes on Daisy and my other projects, it's a great exercise coming back to Copper and having to limit myself to some basic tools.
