Fade-outs, from Monday's comic

Fade-out
From Monday's comic. The fade-outs and fade-ins are inspired by Dave Sim's use of the same device in the Cerebus comics, especially in Guys and Latter Days. Full color should make the device even more effective than it is in the meticulously hand-made Cerebus, but I'll let you be the judge of that.

The fade-ins were made with Layer Masks. I hadn't really used layer masks since late 2000 when I was still working with The GIMP for everything except the lettering, but I found the layer mask implementation in Paint Shop Pro 8 easy enough to use.

I guess this fading's supposed to indicate a time lapse to speed up the storytelling? I think I don't like it. [The fading, not the time lapse.] It looks like a shimmy blot of fog hovering over the page. I enjoy reading your courtroom drama, however. Keep up the good work! :)

Greetings,

Michiel Prior.
