Doffers’ Theatre of the Unconscious #2

It’s time for my second installment of Doffers aka The D-Man’s dreams in comic form, now IN COLOUR with even more ANTARCTIC DWELLING CREATURES! Although I have a terrible eye for colour, looking at the super-vibrant work of the incredible Dan Hipp inspired me to at least add a little bit of colour to this one. This comic takes place at night, which also allowed me to keep it simple and muted. Click the image for a larger view.

Notes on process after the jump. Continue reading
