As Pencil Princess, I present to you “Cooler With Sunglasses,” a short slice-of-life comic strip starring myself, PenPrin.
My last comic, Silent Characters, was partially colored, but I thought I’d try going back to black-and-white for my comics. I really like how the final panel turned out with the gradient background. Everything is drawn in pen, but the text and the gradient background in the last panel were added in digitally.
There’s a reason why I keep my sunglasses on at the end of the school day. It’s usually because I’ve been inside for too long and when I see the sunlight it makes my eyes hurt. Or, in this case, because I’m having an existential crisis? The last panel is my face when I think about how much homework I have to do…
By the way, the tank top I’m wearing in this comic is based on a zigzag-patterned tank I already own. I bought it from my RedBubble store! If you want to see me actually wearing it, here’s a link to the post where I do. It’s also technically my face-reveal for this blog, if that counts for anything!
Have any ideas for what I should draw next? Let me know in the comments! I always love seeing feedback from my Citizens. Thanks so much for reading my blog!
I’m bad at conclusions.
