Here's the new Guten Tag strip.

I used a new approach this time. Instead of doing the strip completely in Photoshop like before, this time I penciled the strip on paper, scanned that in to Photoshop, then put a layer on top of the pencil rough and 'inked' it. Although I had one less panel filled with art this time, I think it still saved me about an hour or two.

Before, I would go back and forth, using old faithful Ctrl+z, in order to get the lines looking smooth and natural as well as proportionate, but doing a pencil rough first and then doing the lines on top is much easier. It's like having your outline set down before writing a paper. The whole process just goes faster and smoother.
