Comics Process for Thesis

Finished colored pages of the first 3 short stories of my still unnamed comic collection. These six pages took roughly two and a half months. Fail, but at least they're at the quality I want. I wanted them to be made in the lithograph process, only assembled digitally. This took layers of transparency paper, late nights, and coffee. Hopefully I can do another 4-6 pages along with a cover and assemble a mini book by the end of the semester.

Also, side note. Saw amazing exhibits of Islamic Art, Indian Illuminated Manuscripts, and my favorite exhibits which features a Tibetan Shrine and Religious Paintings at the Arthur M. Sackler Gallery in D.C.

I think altogether it was called "In the Realm of the Buddha" I love Tibetan Buddhist Art because of the colors, the crazy detail, the macabre. It fascinates and slightly frightens me. Being in the shrine kind of felt like being in the Fatal Frame game. AAANNND there's this really cool video of a Buddhist making an elaborate Tibetan sand mandala. AND THEN WIPES IT AWAY. It's supposed to signify "The impermanence of existence". For me this mindset is from mars....BUT THAT IS WHAT MAKES IT AWESOME.
