This is the final version of the page I've been working on.
Thanks for everyone's help on getting this in tip top shape. All of your critiques and comments have been invaluable.
I actually put a new board on top of the old one and traced the whole thing over. The first was way too dirty. This came out pretty clean.
I learned a couple of things working on this. One, trust my instincts. I got too wrapped up on a couple of things and totally overworked the page. It took me too long to come up with something I was happy with.
Two, I need to be a bit faster. One thing I totally didn't need to do was pencil in all the black areas. I know that's considered a kind of no-no. At least to some editors I've spoken with in the past.
I mostly did that because it was late, I wanted to draw, but, didn't have the energy to start a new page.
But, next time, totally blocking in shapes and doing the 'x' thing. Maybe.
Here's the inks. -->[link]

So, on to the next page....
Thanks again everybody!!
