A cap I made for Gwendolyn over on the Haven quite recently that I had a lot of fun with developing. Gwendolyn has a thing for smoking girls, and by that I mean both literally and figuratively. I had wanted to incorporate this in such a way that would make sense, but not blatantly come out and say "she's now developed a craving for cigarettes." I've tried this tact before with some success--the idea that I'll let the action in the picture say that much for me with having to reiterate.
I also played around with some of the effects my editor has to create a comic-book appearance. Of course, true Noir form would probably be in black & white or sepia, but I really like the way the colors turned out when put through the filter, and feel it allows this caption to pop a bit more.
