Everybody's Got Something to Hide....

I've been making good progress when time allows the last few weeks on a seven-page story to appear in the Image comic, Proof. Here's the first panel of the story, featuring an old man and his monkey, in glorious color:

For the past several years, I've been coloring most of my illustrations and comics in Adobe Illustrator, but on this story I'm trying a different look and method using Photoshop. Still employing a simple, mostly flat-color look, I'm also using a chalk Photoshop brush for backgrounds to add texture and depth, separating the characters from their environment a bit, similar to the approach used in much animation. This is the last preview of any art for the story that I'll post before it appears, which may be sooner than later since I may finish it earlier than I expected. I'll keep you posted here.
