In a faraway, magical land, two vastly different thieves are forced to work together when they are framed for the theft of an ancient jewel. Can they clear their names and recover the jewel in time to stop a civil war?
This comic was all about experimentation for me. I inked the cover with a brush, but it took way too long (I'm not a patient person) and I didn't like the results, so the rest was done with pen, mostly a Copic Multiliner. I like how the Copic is just wet enough to make a smooth line without spreading. Also, it's nice for making fine, tapered lines. I did all-analogue color on the first seven pages using Prismacolor markers. Markers are so much fun to use and make great texture, but it's frustrating and costly when they start dying, so to save time and money I colored the rest in Photoshop and added a fake texture to simulate consistency. All in all, I think I've settled on my technique and art style and hope to use it more consistently for the next issue.
