I also used speedball or crow quill tips on a dip pen to ink the comix. I am a lefty and push my drawing utensil and sometimes when I used a ink pen, it would splat and mess everything up.
I did a bunch of Stinky poo comix and let the splats happen for the fun of it!
This one has never been published (Ha, published! Like my printing out 50 copies of a minicomic was a publication).
If you look close at the 2nd panel, I used an "oops!" rubberstamp I have!

I think I added a little color pencil a couple of years ago.
I used real India Ink with a dip / quill type pen for the initial outlines.
it is on very thick watercolor paper.
Maybe I'll send it to a friend as an actual postcard Soon!

Took a few lunch hours to get it right.
I featured a video of it in a video back then.

Ink and color pencil.
Essentially a study in Black, white and sepia tones.
I had fun and let things just flow!

Please check out the post of the actual card that I hand colored with watercolor back in 2010, here.
Please check it out! click this now!
I manipulated it back in 2010 and didn't have any fancy digital image manipulation software then and I still refuse to buy anything like that. I use Gimp (open source) and Corel Painter Essentials 4 if I really need to do some semi-high-tech stuff.
I'm old-school and prefer to hand color stuff!
What i do like about the generally recent technology is the ability to scan or photograph so cheaply and have the "process" available to view!
