I think the Wallwater school is like a game of Labyrinth, where the walls just move the fuck around to whatever arrangement I need them with no regard to physics or design. The hallways don't make any sense, this bigass gym came out of nowhere and doesn't even really fit with architectural styles of the period, and the worst of it all is I don't plan on doing anything about this. Cuz seriously, they are in this stupid school for the rest of this chapter, and then they graduate, and then Wallwater High School is just a big lumpkin of a memory.

Aggie looks so nice with that touch of lipstick on. Same with the other girls, almost makes me wish I drew them that way all the time. Oh well. They'll be this way at least to the end of this chapter. I'll likely implement this more in the future, so that you all don't tire of my barrage of man-looking women all the time.

To be fair I didn't understand much of my school's layout till the very end - I knew the routes I had to take but I didn't make any kind of full picture from them in my head.

These days I try to plan out as much of recurring settings as possible but I used to do a lot of "oh, there's a hallway and a room, what more do you want?"

@Oly-RRR: It's a habit I should probably look into adopting more thoroughly :P Right now the cast is bouncing around so much that it's generally enough for me to just go back and refer to a previous page and take some liberties with it. But that's only because I've been lucky :P

My school was one floor and the formation was essentially a letter A, with a little hallway sticking off the top of the A. Then senior year they did construction and closed it into a figure 8, mostly too late for it to benefit me in any way.

@mitchellbravo: Mine was four floors and sort of like an H. I still live near enough it to see more often than I'd like. XD

Many schools have floor plans online if the actual layout is important to you and/or your comic. I used one for a school in one my comics, but I later scrapped it for my own design.

@Squirreltastic-Blue: Oh cool, thanks! I won't need it now that they've all graduated, but I think in the future if I get to having a recurring setting I'll be smarter about planning it out.
