I didn’t think about how hard it would be to emulate pixel art with water colours.
No wonder this kickstarter has more than enough backing:
The reindeer turned out much too dark and there are quite a few pencil strokes left, but I like it enough not to redraw it.
I did try to erase the last pencil strokes, but some undried part made an enormous smudge, so that was not an improvement.
Good thing I take pictures before I start colouring or do other improvements.
A few years ago I joined Facebook as a means to promote my cartoons. I disliked it from the start but started it to hate it more and more.
Facebook is in my view nothing more than a blog space combined with a phone book (and where you can’t phone anyone unless you buy the phone book).
It also doesn’t work as a way to promote my cartoons (maybe because they are not share-worthy enough) and Facebook starts to make all things outside Facebook invisble, so I doubt there will be more traffic on my site (half of the traffic to my site disappeared since I installed a firewall anyway) but it still feels good.
So I decided to try and use the time I used to spend on Facebook (and the time freed by not having to navigate their terrible website) to make more cartoons.
I used to view Facebook during breakfast so the cartoons I DO make during breakfast are hand drawn without computers (although I did correct a typo in the last cartoon on the computer).
