I like the way the line art turned out in panel 4.
Apologising is hard... But surprisingly people who find it easy are usually the ones who don't really mean it. I used to know someone who said "sorry" all the time because of silliest things but every time they actually hurt anyone they would never admit it.
@Oly-RRR: That's a really good point I never thought of before. It's like some people use those little useless apologies to pre-deflect the need to make big ones. Probably something to do with self-esteem and all that, I'd bet.
@mitchellbravo: Yup! Also when they always apologise at some point people start telling them "you don't have to say it!" and they literally get allowed to not apologise for their bullshit because they are such special snowflakes. Its not a magic button anyway - no point in saying sorry if one doesn't make any effort to fix what went wrong or at least prevent it from happening again.
What can I say, meeting some people made me a bit more jaded but also gave some material for Cop Story. XD
@Oly-RRR: Hahahahahaha yes yes exactly!! It's the "Poor little weak ol' me, I couldn't hurt nobody for real, after all, I spend all my time 'pologizin' and takin' the blame for things I ain't done..."
It's funny how the messed up people seem to worm their way into stories more often than "regular" "right" people :P
@mitchellbravo: Yup! :D
I guess it's because most stories are about something going wrong in some way? But then even most harmless genres (like I dunno, something for preschoolers, a bunch of friends having picnics together) have their villains and mavericks too... And when it comes to my comics my characters development process pretty much starts with "right, so what's wrong with you?" XD
@Oly-RRR: HAHAHA! I think starting with the fundamental flaw is great. It's whatever is the strongest part of the character's personality, so it can manifest positively or negatively dependent on the situation.
