Interesting so far! I like it :D I love how the settings have so much detail, how do you do the coloring?

Oh wow! A comment! Thanks for the compliments!

As for your question, I first draw everything out by hand (I kinda suck with a tablet), and then scan everything in as B/W lineart. Then I use Paint Shop Pro to do all the colouring. I work with several layers at a time (lineart, colour, shading, red filter, etc.), with varying degrees of transparency applied to each. That's how I do all the shadow effects and everything. So the colouring is mostly just painted overtop of the lineart, and then I play around with the transparency levels on each layer. Sometimes I'll also use some more advanced stuff as well (textures, blur tools, etc.), but not on this page.

Thanks again for the comments, I'm glad you're enjoying Red Earth so far. Keep checking back; as of Monday we plan to go on to a more consistant page-a-week schedle.
