I guess this is less manga-looking and more comic looking. I'm working on branching out as far as styles go, because manga and anime doesn't necessarily appeal to everyone, and I want people to realize I can do more than chibis and sexy naked anime chicks. xD
not to mention playing with new styles is fun.
Background? I did it by hand. lots of dots, burred, eraser lines across the page, in varying sizes, blurred, and huge white circles (eraser) in varying sizes, slightly blurred?
and then I messed with tints and hues, because the color was a little off~
