Hi everyone! I hope you all had a good weekend. Mine could've been better, honestly.

Okay, I promised to talk about the pictures in the frames this week!

What I'm doing with that is basically what normal people do with photos. They take pictures of their friends and family and stick 'em up around the house and guests fawn over them at holiday parties. It's pretty much the same thing with Lilith's family only there are a LOT of pictures because everyone on this page has been alive for a REALLY long time and many of the people in the photos are dead at the current point in time in the comic. So they're little memorial photos of good friends and important people from their lives for the most part. There are some pictures of living people and family photos and things like vacation photos with the tops of people's heads in front of some landscape because everyone sucks at taking group photos.

There is one person that has a lot of large photos because she was a really important member of the family and she'll show up later in the comic.

Actually quite a few of the pictures would be paintings because Lilith, Lex, and Etzy were all alive before the invention of photography and paintings and drawings were the only way to have an image of someone.

So that's the story of the craploads of pictures in the past few pages. Family memories, something I only ever experienced when I lived with my mom. At my dad's place the photos were only kept on a little bookcase kind of thing and they were always hidden behind things and shoved at the back of the shelves so no one really saw them. My mom was the one with the giant picture frames that held like twenty photos of my brother and I when we were wee babes and her dead mum and things like that.


This page was really hard to draw because of all those photos though. So tiny. I tried to keep them all simple, just blobs of color that look like people, but there were just so many. Also the perspective in the first panel was a challenge.

The lighting looks a bit too intense though for being indoor lighting during the daytime, I might have to go back and tone it down a bit.

The next few pages have given me nothing but trouble though so my buffer is suffering a bit. Hopefully after I finish the page I'm working on I can crank out pages a little quicker and with less hiccups.

I think that's it for this week. Next week we get a change of scenery and things really start moving in the direction they're supposed to for the plot to kick in.

See you next week!

No one in comics who says "don't worry, I'll be fine" is ever, EVER fine...

I'm just going to comment yet again how gorgeous your page is. you might want to get used to that... :)

It's a rule. "I'll be fine!" *five second later cut to a scene where the city is burning and people running and screaming in fear*

please keep those compliments coming they fuel my life force

Loving the reboot so far; I liked the older version too, but it felt a little confusing. The story's clearer here.

The first panel's dialogue does feel a little jilted though. I can't imagine using the phrase "The Human City" in casual conversation if they have even a passing familiarity with it. Referring to a city/district by name, or using a more natural phrase like "around the humans" would feel more natural.

Yeah, the main reason behind the reboot was to make the writing better and have the story be less confusing for everyone.

I see your point about the dialogue, though. I'll try out a few different phrases and see which fits better. Thanks for pointing that out ^_^

Haha you think so? I think the upstairs lighting is a bit too intense for the time of day.

Lilith is the cutest.

Etzy's dress is cute too! I want her shirt. X3

A little off topic. What kind of tablet do you use? I think I asked before... I got a new laptop over summer and haven't used my wacom bamboo tablet on it yet because I'm afraid I;m gonna have to go online to download the software because I don't think I have the disks anymore. Y_Y Maybe they're back in my room in my parents house in Sonora... *End partial internal rant*

Yeah all her clothes are great I can't wait to show them off more.

I use a wacom bamboo splash. And I think you just need the drivers because when I got a new laptop last year I'm pretty sure I just plugged it in and downloaded the drivers I needed and it worked. And when I borrowed tablets from school or brought mine to school when I was in school I just plugged it in and it worked fine so you probably just need to download the drivers for it.

Oh yay that makes me feel loads better. X3 although I just remembered I don't have any of the paint programs I loved from my old laptop on this one... I'll have to get those, too.

Haha yeah, the beauty of comic-related illustrations and unrelated art: background pictures and posters.
