Well, I guess this is the first actual environment I've done for FT at all, really. I haven't used basic perspective techniques in countless years. (Probably because I haven't drawn large box-shaped objects in countless years.) All things considered, I'm satisfied with the way this turned out. The buildings in the background, done from photo reference, help a great deal.
It took an awfully long time, though. Probably on the order of eleven hours total. At least four of those were for the first two aborted attempts at the page. I couldn't seem to get the doorway to look right; it was always too small and far away. So eventually I just broke down and cheated, and it turned out fine.
In the future, I will have to do this kind of thing much faster, because I simply can't afford to spend eight hours just doing one background for one panel. It's fine for a full page, but not several times a strip.
I always liked how the movie Airplane II starts off with the caption "Houston - The Future". I had half a mind to do that here, but I doubt anybody would have gotten it. Since I have the correct dates, I might as well use them.
I used up my first blue pencil lead on this page, which is kind of a nice milestone for me. It reminded me that I'm finally actually doing something instead of just thinking about it.
