This is the third installment of Major Studio Production which is drawn by hand. When I'm not drawing with Microsoft Paint, I much prefer the look of straight pencil artwork, as it can be a lot more expressive, especially with the subtle tones and shades you can get out of a pencil. Sadly, it doesn't come out that well when scanned into a computer, and must be processed to get the proper look.
In this case, I scanned in Photoshop and boosted the contrast. But, because I was reducing the size from 8"x11" @ 300DPI down to screen resolution, I had to thicken up the lines, which seriously reduces the detail.
