"I'll have a Non-reproducible Blue Christmas..."

Here's one panel of my latest comic. This is a color scan, so it shows the non-reproducible blue pencil marks. This is my first time trying this kind of pencil, and I think I'm a convert. They never have them at our local art supply store, so when I was in Philadelphia, I bought a great big handful of them.

The idea is, that you can pencil the drawing and ink it. You don't have to erase the pencils, because if you scan it in black & white, the pencils don't show. That the idea, anyway, only next time I won't be so heavy handed with it.

So you just have to make a black and white scan of the original, and the blue doesn't show up? I'm trying this later today or tomorrow :-)
