PHASE background art

So as you can see from the comic, when the fight scene begins, we move towards an illustrated background. This is one of the better ones I drew. I especially like the shadows from the fence on the bricks. They took some time, but they were worth it.

I loved the idea of the illustrated backgrounds for the fights. It implied one of several options.

Firstly it asks the question if these events are real. Is Phil/Phase imagining this? Is he embelishing it? Is it a fantasy life that he uses to enrich his otherwise mundance existence. It enters us into Phil's comic book fantasy life. But we find that things are a lot more complicated here also.
