To sleep ~ArtGumshoe.com book 3 pg 18 by KCclearwater To sleep ~ArtGumshoe.com book 3 pg 18 by KCclearwater
Nerva falls asleep; enter dream sequence.

I realized at the end of Book 1 that my poor drawing skills, while (arguably) suitable for telling a story (or at least SUGGESTING that a story is being told), aren't very good at visually conveying much scale or awe.

So when the going gets vague and ominous, the vague and ominous break out the cheap watercolors and heavily-tinted construction paper!

(Though may be the only time in the first 200 pages of artgumshoe where said watercolors + construction paper will appear).

This is beautiful, with your flowing approach at storytelling. 
The lines and water colors portray a delicate and accidental/deliberate rhythm that acts as gentle wind currents, pushing the sails of my mind-ship. 
Great work!

Thank you very much! Currently its only dream-sequences/abstract events that get the watercolor treatment. But after 7 years of ballpoint pen, it's interesting to play with something you can alter AFTER you've put it on the page.

Yes, I agree. A little variety never hurts. :) (Smile)

Good job, you have reached dream atmosphere for us there.

Thanks! Huge vague shapes moving in the distance -- kind of like a lot of the backstory (which is okay, it's not supposed to overshadow what's happening up-close).
