While taking the photos for this strip, I only realised at the third shot that I should angle the camera to make it look like the ship is being tossed on the waves. So when I came to put it together, I cropped the first frame at an angle to give it that tilt, while panels 3 and 4 were shot titled like that.

The sky has also been replaced with a photo I took of storm clouds, and then the rain is added using a Photoshop macro I made, and the brightness and contrast are adjusted to make the scene a bit gloomier looking than daylight. So there's a lot going on in the construction of the images here.

I bet you can't even tell that the ocean is in fact a blue towel.
