This batch is a little bit better; I feel like I'm getting more comfortable with the Wacom tablet and picked up a few more stylistic ideas. I'm especially fond of that second one, but tend to lean away from that style for anything sequential related--stuff like that tends to get really busy and hard to read if not done really carefully.
Gonna have to wrap up the sketching sometime soon and actually get my hands dirty (hopefully this weekend). I've been brainstorming for Pretzelberger strips and have at least one idea that I'm pretty excited about. Also, I think I'm going to be brush inking and hand lettering all of the Pretzelberger strips I do over the summer, so hopefully the quality is a little bit better. I have to say, I'm a little worried about the lettering, especially since it'll be so different visually from all of the older strips... but we'll see how it goes.
