Spacehawk's Space Madness Page 8
Air Raid Robertson on Dec. 8, 2009
I really wanted to end this story with a large panel of Spacehawk's starship taking off into the distance. I know it's a cliche image, but it's appropriate image. Plus, I don't get the opportunity to do all that many splash panels.
When I first drafted this page I originally wanted the moon to look craggy and grey. (Like the Earth moon) However, I made an off-hand reference on the previous page that Spacehawk was being treated on the Saturnian moon of Titan. I decided to look up Titan in a jumbo-sized book I have on astronomy. And, well, I discovered that Titan has an atmosphere.
Needless to say, this changed the look of my page considerably. I went through a lot of color blending before I found a look that I was satisfied with. (Titan was colored a bit too much like Saturn at first)
I think this page looks okay, but if I had to start over again I would've went with a different layout. I would've done something with a bit more outer space and therefore a bit more visual contrast.
Oh well. I suppose I can work it into a future sci-fi comic.
