Masterfully and beautifully colored by the greatest gal pal, Aleah Baker:
Go to her deviantart site and tell her how awesome she is. GO ON. DO IT! HURRY UP!!!
Batch #3! At this point I was getting tired of the lettering I was spending time drawing being dropped out, so as you can see, I simply went and did it myself. I think Amy's grin was toned down for the final printing of Strip #2 also. I don't have the books on hand to see.
Although Gary Martin was credited with inking all 4 strips in the books, I actually went back and re-drew the inks for the very last one, "Team Freedom's Arsenal," myself (it was too late to change the credits in-house so oh well no big). As a result, I think that one's probably my favorite of the batch because IMO it came out just right. I didn't actually ink the BG of Big's panel BTW. I drew the squiggly bits in using one of those old school china marker pencils.
AoSTH cameos are all around in #4. I'm so happy with what Aleah did for those crayon colors in Big's panel to match the china marker. It's hilarious. Also, check out the pastels for Amy's strip. Great right? I love Aleah's stuff, y'all. I really do.
Also, kudos to anyone old enough to remember Burma Shave signs.
