Hooold my haaand and I'll taaake you theeere. Hooold my hand and we're haaaalf way theeere. SOMEWHEEEEEEEERE.

Past three weeks went by like a rug yanked out from under me. This page was originally supposed to be four separate pages, one for each attempt they made, but after I paneled it out I realized it was unnecessarily repetitive and not interesting enough to string out that long. As a result everything's crammed into one page, which looks too clustery but wtf ever mannn

I kind of worked on this page simultaneously with the next two pages, and was having a hard time with the settings in particular so it took a long time to sketch and ink them. The next two just need to be colored and edited so they should be coming along sometime this week.

Anyway, here's a comic I'd like to recommend as penance for my own wretched update reliability: The Schizophrenic's Storybook and Other Tales by C. B. Webb. I usually don't recommend comics primarily due to their art, but this one is worth checking out for that alone. It's done in stunningly atmospheric watercolor and the character designs have me swooning. The plot is still relatively undeveloped as of yet but, like, look at it.

Hope to catch you all again soon.

I think it works well as a shorter version but I know that when you rewrite and especially shorten something it seems slightly off because you're more used to the older version.

And gosh, looking for a place to live can be nerve-wrecking now but back then it was just a nightmare! D:

@Oly-RRR: It's definitely punchier and faster this way. The original version would have lingered on Donny a lot more in ways I didn't really think were necessary to guide their plot into the future. I also realized that, while here I've essentially used the same layout three times- exterior shot, then interior lobby- I would have been doing the same thing on a full-page scale if I left the scene stretched out. It seemed it wouldn't be a good use of my time to draw the same scene over and over when it could be shortened and still get the point acorss!
