little longer page little longer page little longer page
(i think the sizes are going to vary depending on storytelling but they'll generally stay the same size)

watched every monster factory (again)

★ 
I slam my hands on the table, time for Marceau and his special necklace

★ Rhys loses his shirt so hard his eye color changes
★ Some people have noticed that Rhys's hair and eyes changed from his first appearance, yeah! As an inert he doesn't inherently look like any gijinka forms; so throughout the story he'll get more and more cyndaquil-ified as his powers are unveiled Bo)

★ I'll make refs of these characters when a few more are introduced (these aren't even close to their actual design outfits so I don't want to make one I'll redo pretty soon) 

★ I got to put some of my favorite character acting in here with my baby boy on those last few panels!! Just love a good world-changing discovery

i'd just like to highlight the incredible characterization in each and every panel in this. dialogue? fuck dialogue oliver doesn't need it to portray his characters thoughts, feelings, and individual and unique quirks - he's got them art skillz.

Seriously man, you manage to convey characterization through them s t a n d i n g  u p  and  t u r n i n g  a r o u n d, like what the fuck is this sorcery. panels 2, 9, 13, and the final panel are so rich in story telling and characterization and its just fucking astounding, bewildering, and inspiring. and GOD THE COLORS. the colors. are so good and pretty and i dont know a lot of art words but its real fuckin good, i can tell you that.

alright, i need to go get my pots and pans and yell about the new tattoo lore, im hype.

Ahh oh my gosh Thank you so much!! You're so sweet! I'm really happy that my storytelling is getting through, I'm always a little worried that I don't spend enough time on certain bits and pieces and that it disorients the audience! But I'm really happy to know that I seem to be doin' a-okay!

Ahh, I love this comic so much so far! :0 The character designs are amazing, the expressions are fantastic, and gaahhhhh, it's just so good!
I'm loving all the changes you are making to the main story/dialogue too!!! It makes this comic even more interesting to read. All the headcanons you've added are soo nice! The flowers the seeds grow on is a great addition and brings a lot more logic into the dungeons. And the explanation on how the seeds and berries work... Oof, they are all just so clever!
I could ramble forever on how much I've enjoyed these first pages. I'm excited to see where this comic heads in the future! Your art style is absolutely wonderful

AH! wow!! Thank you so much!! 
I'm super glad my changes seem to stick to the flow of the game, I think my biggest goal with this comic is to present mystery dungeon in a plausible way, I'm trying reeal hard to keep the suspension of disbelief in there and I'm glad it seems to be working. 
I'll keep getting out pages as quick as can be!

ahh!! Thank you!! I'm really glad, I aim for such specifics with my expressions that sometimes they come off as something different, but I'm happy they were successful this time

that 100%toomuchthanks expression at the end is such a mood.

I like the hatch brushes you've used for the hard shading edges.  It's a nice effect.  Did you decide to do that to keep the single tone cell shading?

100%TOOMUCHTHANKS EXPRESSION JGHGHK

I did! I'm really trying to keep to a seemingly "cel" shaded look on painted backgrounds (wow how miyazaki haha but no really that's exactly what I'm going for) 
it's also a nice sharp edge thing, good for marceau's panic attacks

Yeah, I reckon you nailed it with the shading/mood that you were going for.

I am definitely seeing you emulate some miyazaki, and it's working quite well.  I think the low detail background - when you use them - do a nice job at pulling the eye into the characters.  But then the zoomed out looks down at the scenery also do well at creating dimension (at least in my head) when I'm reading/looking.
