How to Do 3D Comics

We've been following a series on called "Brainstorming: Digital Comics" and this week's post is about creating 3D comics. The results are impressive. Here's the technique that the artist came up with in his experiments:
It’s pretty simple. Just copy the stuff you want in front on the top layer, remove the foreground items from the background with the stamp tool, copy the background 'screen' a cyan layer over one background (red over the other), merge the respective backgrounds with each color, set them to ‘multiply’, then just nudge the cyan layer left a few and the red layer right a few. BOOM. 3D.
For the entire article, more hints and some pretty cool images go to Brainsttorming Digital Comics#19.
