Hey everyone! ^^ This is the official DA page for the comedy BL webcomic Ichigopan! I'll be posting chapter covers and hopefully some random sketches here~
Be sure to check out the adventures of Yuusuke and the gang here: www.ichigopan.net
Ichigopan Volume 1 is out!!YES, it's finally here after a long LONG wait! Ichigopan Volume 1 is now in print and ready for orders! *.*.*^0^/*.*.*
You can see more photos and pre-order it here at the site: https://ichigopan.net/vol1.php
I am taking pre-orders for the book for the next two weeks (September 4th through 18th), then ordering everyone's books at once to save on shipping. I'm not sure when I will print another batch, so quantities are very limited! ^_^
The digest-sized (5.5 x 8.5) book is 158 pages long and covers chapters 1 through 8. Also included are bonus pages featuring exclusive character profiles, sketches, and more!
I am so proud of this book! ^_^ It's been a dream of mine for years to have a series in print. I used a cheaper printing service, so it may not be perfect top-notch quality, but it still looks great and I'm really happy with it! I know there are a few of you here on DA who were interested in it, so I hope you are excited too! Yay!
I'm on Patreon!Hey Ichigopan fans! Just wanted to give a heads up. I'm now on Patreon, an awesome website that lets you support your favorite artists for a very small monthly fee in exchange for cool bonus stuff! Here's the link! If you're a fan of Ichigopan and enjoy goodies like early samples of a future page's line art or bonus sketches you can't see anywhere else, please consider supporting me! ^_^ It would mean so much to me and help me to reach some goals that would make creating Ichigopan faster and easier.
Thanks for reading! <3
Who wants a book?!Hey Ichigopan fans~
The book's pages and cover are all done now! The next step would be to send away for a proof copy, but I wanted to ask you all something first...
I've narrowed the printing website down to two places. One of them lets me order however many copies I want, even if I only sell a few books. The other one seems much better quality going by the print samples they have sent me, but I need to order at least 50 copies.
So I want to know, how many of my readers are interested in buying the first volume of Ichigopan once it is out? Let me know if you are in the comments here! This will help me decide which printing company to work with! Thank you so much! ^_^

A quick update on my absenceHello DAers!
My long absence due to multiple projects (and teaching, and graduate school) is probably a month away from coming to an end. I apologies for those who sent me IMs and didn't hear back, sometimes for months. If there is a rush it's almost always better to contact me through my website contact form, as I'll see that right away.
Also, I should have lots of fun skeletals to show off in the coming months (and years) thanks in part to the work I put in over the last 9 months. I look forward to chatting with you all again in a few weeks!

Cinematic Composition and FramingI have recently started to dive into cinematic composition & framing to try to add more depth to my images.
I thought it would be kinda cool to explain my thought process with my recent image. "Lily's Favorite Bar"
Step 1) Get the basic idea figured out.
My friend, the commissioner and I agreed on the concept of Ash being the bartender serving an eager Lily and disgusted Willow.
Step 2) Find out who the main focus should be in the shot.
I wanted Ash to be showing off her villainous personality and be in control of the situation but not the main focus. So Ash was used as a framing device for the real stars of the image.
Step 3) Add Subtle clues to help give the audience a better understanding of the characters and where to look.
Making Ash larger helped portray her control over the situation. But not the main focus as she is looking off to the side to help guide your attention to what she is i
