We're back!! And with a new character too, yay!

Alright, so chapter 2 is starting finally! I've been really excited to draw this chapter, there's some new characters I get to draw and new environments the characters visit and some talky-talky-exposition stuff later on. I've tried my best to write the script for the talky-talky bits in the second half so that it's not just walls of text and that it's not boring, so hopefully I can execute them in that manner.

I'm not entirely happy with panel 1 of this page. I realized halfway through drawing the ocean that I kind of forgot how to draw the ocean? So it looks a little wonky to me.

I absolutely love drawing this character though, she's so much fun! And so colorful, lovely blues and greens befitting a mermaid. I'm experimenting with blushes/etc on different colored skin, so her blushes and stuff are a cool purple color. I was really iffy about it at first but eventually it grew on me and now I really love how it looks.
It was a challenge drawing her tail though... that was something new for me, drawing her tail sticking out of the bottom half of her dress without it looking weird. I've drawn her a lot before but not quite the way she's drawn on this page.

Okay so, Important Thing so please pay attention!!!!

I'm going to update chapter 2 twice a week. Mostly so I can move the story a long faster. I'm not sure how long I'll be able to keep it up though as it means I have to draw pages twice as fast (which I have discovered a method that helps me draw multiple pages faster), and also given that I have something like a social life and I'm looking for a day job, which, if I get one means I'll have less time to work on the comic.

So I'm going to try and do twice weekly updates, on Mondays and Thursdays, for as long as I can to speed things along. Thanks for waiting a month for me to get back to the main story, September got crazy busy for me. See you on Thursday!!!

Oh Rinkelle, who needs a job when you can steal? *cue inspirational music*

But yeah, I guess a job is important. Just try to go for something fun is all I'm saying.

If you have found a way to work faster, would you find it in your heart to share? Some of us are going to appreciate it ;)

You'll have to train for 10,000 years before I reveal my art secrets to anyone! Wahahahaha!!

Really though I just work on two pages at once and somehow things go faster?? Idk.

Sometimes it feels like I've trained for 10,000 years.
Other times, it feels like I still don't know what I'm doing.
When I was working by hand, I used to work on 6 pages at a time (I had 6-page "chapters" then, so it made sense)I'll try working on two pages next time and see what happens.
Thanks!

If only beautiful and magical mermaids like this one were real... :( (And unicorns...and pink princesses...and fairy god mothers...and more mermaids! ...Ahh, what the heck am I talking about?)

BTW, I'm lovin' the art and the story so far. :) Though I kind of liked the older comics, the newer updated ones on here look a lot better and cooler! So does the web design layout. Can't wait to see what Chapter 2 has to offer! :)
