I've been working on this since December, though it's been rough. Apparently, I get bored when there are only two colors to work with.
It's from one of my favorite panels of Calvin & Hobbes, when they find a dead bird. It's one of the philosophical strips, so they contemplate life and death.



It's 122x237, and yeah. I'm just so excited to be done with it!

Here's the original strip:

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.

I love this!  I love Calvin & Hobbes and this is a great and un-obvious way to capture the strip.

Wow, fantastic.  I also get bored easily when working with big swaths of one or two colors.  You just gotta keep on keeping on.  Impressive work.

Oooooh, one of my favorite C&H strips -I recognized it just from the thumbnail of the bird! You captured it perfectly, and though it must have been monotonous, the black on white is wonderful -fabulous work!

Thank you all!  Grin
I'm glad you guys like it. Even though it was a tad tedious at times, I still had a lot of fun working on a larger project than I'm used to.
