When he decides to go and get the girl, the pirate way, by kidnapping her, not only he finds out that she is more than a pirate could ever want from a wife... but that she has 4 identical sisters as well.
This discovery hits him when his men, who were supposed to help him out, each kidnaps a different girl... and none of them gets the right one! But Wilson Kane wants the girl he had met and no one else! Luckily for him it will be the girl herself to solve his problem and put an end to his dilemma...

I was testing these and I have to say that they printed out quite nicely and exactly the color they were meant to be.
I did this using the PDF file hosted on Issu which can access also through the menu above (under lower deck)
Not bad, huh?
I print back and front and laminated them. Then put ribbons.

I work mainly in layers because that's how I would do it traditionally, work from the bottom up - my preferred medium being gouache and glaze for this kind of style.
Create the panels with the object tool and then create a selection.
I dump the base color with the bucket and turn down the sketch opacity.
Now I pick a dry brush and start painting on sperate layers the other colors. Like this, if I want to turn the opacity down I still can, and if I want to play with multiply... I also can.
Then I take a regular hard brush and do the linework. This is not pure white though. I never use pure white and pure black as they actually do not exist in nature and make things look... mhhh... artificial, I'd say...
The layers you see on top are from the previous page. Although I write down the code numbers of my colors... sometimes, to make sure I am keeping consistency, I create my new page in the same file as the old one where I swtich on and off the old layers and double check comparing with the new ones... before I trash the old ones away.
As you see my skin tone is both on top and bottom. The bottom one allows me to fill empty shapes fast. the top one is to refine the edges with the yellow border so... for touch ups.
I flatten the artwork, save the file as Lettering and do my lettering .

After calculating the number of votes and the average stars given by the viewers (there's like a script in the poll website that calculates that)... here are the winners of the third anniversary entry:
I thank you all for participating and for the poems... may I ask a kind soul to volunteer and do some nice little vignettes illustration for them?
I would like to put them together nicely in indesign and create a downloadable booklet with all your fan fics and poems.
Now the winner can request anything she likes :D

They were on tumblr so I don't know how to link on the page with the post.
I'll link you to the homepage of the tumblr instead.
This one is by Banal Adventures.
And this drawing of Kane is by Dragon Apples.
