Synopsis:

Comment:
Here I am experimental again:

1. I varied the panels by having either the figure or the background in high contrast and the other in cross-hatch. This worked in the second panel, but I can see that I need work on consistancy.

2. This is the first time trying to "draw long hair as it it were ribbons",  and reading works by Shiomi Chika inspired this approach. I have long been unsatisfed with my depictions of long, wavy hair, and this is my attempt to change. I'm not sure how I like the shading in the last panel.

3. Not really experimental, but I wanted to note how please I am at how the Doctor came out in the first panel; not so much in the last panel, but hey, I shall celebrate small victories. I think that was my best depiction of him yet.

Materials: maru-pen nib, Pilot Drafting Ink, Copic markers, Pro-white, Photoshop for clean-up and words.

Hi! I read your whole comic in one go. I like the plot. It is a simple premise on the surface, but leaves the viewer with a lot of questions. I have a comic too and also using it as a means to experiment. How do you keep a fairly consistent schedule?

Thank you for reading and the comment! I am glad you found it entertaining.

For scheduling, first of all I have the plot already written out. This way I don't have to worry about "huh, what do I do next?" I found that it's easier (and less stressful) to start the next page the day I turn in the previous one. I'm guessing on average I spend two hours on pencils, four-five on inking, and on hour on scanning and Photoshop. I find if I procrastinate, the quality of the product goes down, and I don't get to experiment.

I hope that was helpful. Do you have specific questions?

Thanks for the advice! I guess I just need to do my work in one go, instead of doing part of it and procrastinating.

You're welcome! I found that even if my art is not (yet) professional looking, having a weekly deadline is very useful to keep me on track. :)

I also saw that I failed to include the link to the next page. Sweating a little... I edited the description so you can continue to page eight, and beyond.
