Look at that beer-opening motion! Look how good that looks! ^^ Sometimes art is nothing but a bunch of tiny victories, and this was a very tiny victory that made me so stupidly happy. Like, next week's page has a major plot twist but can it top that can? Fuck no!
In general, really love the pages for Hearts' apartment. Again, they're just a ton of fun to draw, experiment with backgrounds, and try what we can to make them look good. It's simultaneously a break to be lazy and extremely rewarding. ^^ Plus I just rather like Hearst in general. Hell, I might even go out and say she's my favorite character in the comic come to think on it. Not sure.
Yeah, think that's all I got. Hope you folks enjoy.
Yeah, I tend to like doing a lot with Cynthia. Wanted to really try and show off various aspects of the character early and often, though don't know how much of a main character she can be called; does get a lot of screentime and has a character and story arc planned and all, but I'm kind of hesitant to call her a lead because I don't really see her ever really becoming an active part of the main group or anything.
But whatever, do really like how these scenes in this chapter are coming out. Actually really happy with this chapter in general, maybe it's just me but really been enjoying everything about it. Other than the cars, those things are just tedious to color. We'll be seeing more cars soon too.
If you missed it, we posted the year five preview the other day. Wound up rushed since the fact that the anniversary was coming up escaped our notice until well into the day, but at least does have some solid hints to what to expect this year.
Speaking of things to expect, next page is 300 and it will naturally have something big happening in it. Wound up having to sort of pace myself on this one, the main reason these Cynthia bits are here instead of a little later was to make it so that what happens there fell on the 300th since it was so close anyway.
See if you can spot the Misfile reference in this page!
Well this is interesting, looking forward to the 300th page.
Do hope you'll enjoy it, pretty happy with how it came out myself.
