Mostly satisfied with the way this page turned out. Blocking of the last panel was a little obviously telegraphed I guess, but it was nice to draw a relatively pretty closeup of Marie for a change.
Guess who almost forgot to paint the fire before I scanned the picture! :D
Random question: Are the women tall, or are the guys just short???
@jolokiapepper97: LOL! It so happens that in this case both are true XD That's a really good panel to demonstrate just how big the difference is, isn't it?
@mitchellbravo: Ah that's what I thought; and yes, that panel is perfect for it :D
@jolokiapepper97: P.s. the first comment you posted, I guess my computer was being weird and your polar bear was missing and I thought you got rid of it.. but then my computer went back to normal and I was happy to see the polar bear was still there! :P
Don't go into the foresssst there's aliens and wolfmen out there!
lol I kid...maybe? But good page!
@mitchellbravo: Aw, thank you! I actually considered changing my avatar a while ago, but I never got around to it. Since you like it though, I'll keep it :P
@TheSilverLeague: Hehehe thank you!! :) I was trying to channel a creepy Maurice Sendak for the first panel- didn't quite work out that way, lol, but I think it works XD
@jolokiapepper97: May your polar bear never go extinct.
I used to be kind of annoyed with Cecilia but i'm starting to really appreciate her cynicism.
Also, i enjoy learning the page titles only when i click to submit a comment, hee.
@Bluezilla: Oh cool!! Cecilia is one of the characters I rarely ever get feedback on so I really appreciate your commentary. The way I envision her has changed a lot since I started the comic but I'm glad to hear that her grumpiness is coming through XD
Hahaha the sad thing is I wanted to have the titles somewhere on the page visibly but have yet to figure out where I'd like it best. Eh! Maybe it works okay enough as a little easter egg!
@mitchellbravo: Yeah, i guess she has often seemed very much like a wet blanket and not super fun all of the time. But at this stage i can start to see that this is also a type of strength, it's useful, and it probably has built up in response to things in her life that i don't know about yet. Her response to Clarabelle at the end of this chapter also shows a lot about her. :)
@Bluezilla: Aaaah yay I'm glad the depth is coming through :)
Depending on how popular that place is for camping the forest might be populated by other violent drunks and they will FIGHT FOR DOMINANCE (and remainders of booze). I worry about Eddie once again. D:
@Oly-RRR: Ohmygod the idea of a colony of perpetual drunks dominating the forest is way too perfect.
@mitchellbravo: The actual woodland animals are too terrified of them to intervene! :D
