Commentary for September 15, 2018:
This page has the dubious honour of being the first I ever used Photoshop effects on. Sure, Photoshop effects can be fantastic, sometimes. But in the hands of a seventeen-year-old sprite comic creator? Hooboy...
Needless to say, I went a bit overboard with the Photoshop over the next few months. On this page, it was just a bit of rippling water and then a motion blur in the final panel. That's not too excessive, surely? Well, maybe not, and I've preserved the motion-blurred background for panel 18. But experience has taught me that, very often, less is more. A simple artistic effect that doesn't rely on too many fancy photo editing software tools can be more effective than lots of special effects. I suppose it's the digital art equivalent of practical effects vs. CGI. Sure, CGI has its uses and is great for things you can't really do as well (or at all) any other way, but sometimes a practical effect is more... well, practical.
So, part of my mission with the remaster from this point on is to try to make my use of effects more restrained and tasteful than it was originally.
