11th dimension

inks for the third of four NOLA covers, from Boom! Studios, issue #1 out on wednesday. maybe 2 years ago i'd done this tiny 2 inch size sketch for a poster, inked it and scanned at 1600 dpi to see what'd happen. it printed allright, at around 3 feet tall the lines were real wobble-y but kinda cool, like a blown out photocopy. so, messing around with that still, the figure in bandages and the background here are inked at print size, hopefully they look out of focus as compared to the figure in the mirror. noticed this in Gorillaz, where if a character moves up close to the camera the lineweight is scaled up accordingly, instead of being the same thickness. ah, we'll see how it goes.
