Very nice, my only qualm is only one brotha and sister in the picture. Please don't take this as an accusation. I just mean maybe toss a couple more in there next time?

Fair point! To be honest, this was kind of drawn in a mad rush and without a whole lot of thought. But that is definitely something I should work on.

How can you watercoloring on copy paper without tearing the paper?? O.o

:iconadoradora:
Adoradora Featured By Owner Feb 15, 2013
Not easily! But my employer wouldn't put up the money for proper watercolour paper ;)

It can work reasonably well so long as you don't use too much water, and let each section dry completely before going over it again. But sometimes you have to iron the paper once it's finished, 'cause it gets pretty crinkly!

So many little scenes too get lost in. I think my favorite is the guy flirting with the woman using the rivet gun. Funny that she appears to be the only one doing any real work. Of course, the big guy who bent the steel support and doesn't quite know what to do is a close 2nd. Great piece, and lots of fun!
