I've had some scanner issue of late—which makes it hard when it's an essential tool for doing my job! In hopes of getting enough money to replace both my scanner and my venerable Mac G4, I'm really trying to hit the commissions hard.
When I do tonal work, I have a tendency to try and make everything too smooth! Needless to say, having someone request Sgt Rock was a great way to try and stretch. It was hard to incorporate some of the rough cragginess that flows so naturally from Joe Kubert every time he draws the character, but it was a great learning experience!
