Here is my finished project. I call it "Cultural Enrichment". It's an attempt at poking a little fun at my son, who loves to order American Food whenever we go out, regardless of the cuisine. My wife and I are totally fine with it in real life, but it seemed like a funny concept, so I went with it.
I used a complimentary color scheme with several greys.
As far as process goes, I did all the lineart on paper and then scanned it in and colored the file in Photoshop. In the future I think I might do the lineart in Photoshop as well, or at the very least transfer the pencils to a clean sheet before inking, to avoid all the ghosted pencil lines.
All in all I'm happy with the way this turned out! I've been wanting to start a weekly strip and this (along with your other class) was just the kick in the pants I needed to get going!
