Masking Fluid

'nother of those silly things, painting the fourth wall. It's an idea I got while working on "The Second Wall".

I'm afraid seeing the thumbnail first rather spoils the effect.

All elements were drawn on paper with a Pentel brush pen (because trying to draw digitally from scratch I don't get the pressure/line weight control I wanted), and arranged after scanning. I drew the smiley face only once, in black, and used colour inversion and layer setings ("addition") to get the effect in the second panel.

I think those stick figures are a help practising balance and such.
