Way too much effort for this...

This is one I'm going to call "Took Way Too Long To Complete". I'm practicing with photoshop. Hopefully upwards is the only way to go.

I think it looks great! But it's sad. You shoulda drop-kicked that guy.

And matching sweater vests are why we rebel and drop out!

I would have responded, "Actually, this is what happens when you STAY in school."

And perhaps I would add, "Enjoy the clowns under your bed at night."

eh, don't let it get to you, one day they will know for themselves what their degree will get them.

Sides, I'd say you have an enviable life.

On a technical notes, I would draw out the line work traditionally, scan it into your computer, maybe play with the black levels, and use photoshop primarily to color the cartoons.

Someone can correct me if I'm wrong but I am sure that photoshop is meant and works best with raster-based images, I'm sure there are better vector-based imaging tool if you would like to actually "draw" digitally. But manipulating vector based images, is like using a shorthand, fast and easy if you know it, but difficult to learn.
