Trying something out - I did the intial rough/layout art in Photoshop, then printed it out very light on to a piece of comic book board. Then I went over it with pens and markers and white gel pen, then scanned the board back into Photoshop. In Photoshop I overlaid some grunge and stone textures. A few extra steps but there's some nice analog noise action that gets added in. Lemme know what you all think...

One of my favorite online retailers is jetpens.com - they carry a lot of art/illustration oriented drawing supplies, including the pencils shown below that I use a lot. I just received the green gel mechanical pencil, with its very squishy and comfortable grip. The other two pencils on the right I just bought for their sheer gadgeto-fetishistic design quality. The larger one is actually weighted a little funny for drawing (at least for me, but then again I'm kind of a princess), but the smaller one on the far left is pretty comfy.
Anyway, very highly recommended.
