Page 64

June 26, 2009

Rolling right on with chapter 5*! Only chapter 1 has a cover so far, so I’ve been considering doing a week of just cover pages at the end of this chapter. I’d be updating five over the course of a week if I did do that, what do you guys think?

Friday’s page might not happen, just as a head’s up. I have to do a resit for university that’s due on Friday, and if I don’t hand it in I don’t get in to fourth year,** so I hope you can appreciate that that takes priority by quite a margin.

And the new vote incentive is the lineart for today’s page again. Thrilling!

*Note from the future: This was originally the opening to chapter 5. Also, I think I never ended up doing those cover pages.
**Further note from the future: I got into fourth year in the end, so skipping that update was actually a really good idea.


Oh by the way, no more redirection problems!


Unfortunately I got a comment on my news post that suggests otherwise, though I suppose at least the redirections must be fairly infrequent or I’d be hearing more about them. I just can’t fathom where the problem is coming from.


Back here again?

And who is this mysterious pale skinned stranger?

And is it just me or do the illuminated background buildings in panel 1 look like cartoon robots?


Back here again, try not to sound too disappointed. :) And it’s Saiamar, who showed up for all of two pages way back at the start of chapter 2, but I didn’t really expect anyone to remember him. He’s Renshou’s husband, for the record. And he’s not actually supposed to be that pale, that’s just kinda how the lighting worked out on this page somehow. I might go back and tweak it later.

Also, I was going to say that the cartoon robots thing was entirely you, but now that you’ve pointed it out I can’t unsee it. nuuuuuu


Hey, I’m all for quasi-classical fantasy architecture and robed folks, its just I far prefer my vaguely soviet steampunk dystopias, if its all the same to you. Which it is, ‘coz you draw ‘em both.

He’s not all that significant a character for a husband, is he? They should totally make with the affection in this scene just to hammer that point home. “G’won Saiamar, give ‘er an ‘ug!” That and I like forcing you into doing complex anatomy interactions that are above me (I bloody hate drawing people interacting physically).

And don’t worry, robots are cool.


Covers would be cool. And homework/schoolwork ALWAYS comes first no matter what anybody else says. Good Luck with your schoolwork!
