Drawing Rain

Drawing rain is not easy. I've been slow with this particular strip, and need yet to do one more page. The bottom four frames were awkward as hell. After scanning the inked pages into the computer, I had to throw the images into negative, and then select certain areas, such as the figure and the car, and flip them back into positive. Then there was the rain, which meant adding a loads of layers, each with its own raindrop, and then compressing the entire image. Very tiresome and time consuming, but the effect is excellent.
