Y'all were like "Jeez, Bravo's never coming back, she's just gonna keep flooding us with filler shit until she dies." But here's something you gotta know- bitches never die, we just transform.
The filler page I put up like a month ago and the BEAUTIFUL AMAZING DRAWING that Oly-RRR made for me are going to go into the "extra art" thing on the site as soon as I get around to doing that, as per usual.
No, I'm not entirely satisfied with the way the building came out either.
Okay, so. HERE'S THE SCOOP. There are, including this page, 13 pages in this scene, and I decided that to "celebrate" this "triumphant" return, each day I update I am also going to include, a-la "Seven Brides for Seven Brothers," a link to a comic I urge you to check out- aka, "Thirteen Links for Thirteen Updates."
Here's the first "bride" for your figurative "brother"-
Author: Emily Weber
Jupiter is a comic that is now a few months old, and the primary reason I need to recommend it is because I absolutely adored Weber's earlier comic, "May the Rain Come." Jupiter is noticeably different from MtRC, especially in terms of its setting, but shares the bold, colorful palette and a similarly endearing, troubled male protagonist. The setting comes in the form of an alternate-history science fiction Confederate States of America, and Otto, a somewhat withdrawn and lonesome scientist, is building a robot with previously unseen capabilities. The prologue introduces the titular character Jupiter, a robot/alien looking being whose storyline will intersect with Otto's at some point in the future. Weber's adherence to a week-daily update schedule is not only impressive, but makes it easy to follow along with the story. Please give "Jupiter" a look-see to see-look if it's something you'll be following going forward.
Not that I can keep it up for as long as Ms Weber does, but for the remainder of this scene, Loud Era will also be updating week-daily, so check back on Monday for the next page.
Thanks for sticking with me & I hope to see you all again real soon.
I know. I can't believe I gave the page that title, either.
I have the strangest feeling that this is going to fail epically
Yesss! :D I saw this right before going to sleep yesterday but I spared you whatever hilariously sleep-deprived comment I could type up at that point. XD
I'm as excited as Joseph except unlike him I don't have an awesomely looking pinstripe suit (I dunno what you did in the end but it worked) or UNREASONABLE FLOOR-WIPING EXPECTATIONS.
I've been staring at the crowd for too long and my favourites are the pissed off woman with a big pink hat in the front and the crazily grinning redhead in the back.
And aaah, the colour scheme looks so warm, makes me want to try traditional comics even though that got pushed way back on my to-do list right now.
@Meleeman: rehehehehehe XD
@Oly-RRR: Aaah thanks!!! I ended up laying down the marker first, impressing the stripes with pen, and then going over the surface with colored pencil. 9/10 would repeat in future
AHAHAA I don't know if it's visible because it's kind of covered up by the guy screaming with a trumpet in his hand but my favorite duo is the guy who looks totally miserable and nonplussed while the other guy tries to give him a reassuring pat on the shoulder :P
Thank youuu!!! I had a lot of fun switching the colors up over the course of the scene- the next few pages are more or less like this one but things get WEIRD LATER semi-sorta kindabit.
@mitchellbravo: Ahahaha I found them!! The miserable guy has such an expression - it makes me wonder how he got roped into it! XD Also I don't know if it's period-appropriate but now I have a headcanon that they are a double act with some ridiculous routine like the cheerful guy playing bagpipes while the miserable guy is dancing in a full-body moose costume. :D
@Oly-RRR: .... I have been waiting to send you this for a while. XD
Your comment made me think of the end... but you will be well advised to watch from the beginning. (it is not preschool nightmares i promise :P)
@mitchellbravo: Bahahaha you don't need a specific reason to send me something like that! XD
Either way, I'm sure Wallwater won't forget this day in a hurry! :D
Oh, just checked in and saw that you were back! Looking forward to see how this goes. Great crowd scene too, I like how you gave them all something to do and treated them as individual characters rather than just having samey people standing around!
@Dranxis: Thaaanks!! :) I hope you'll enjoy the rest of the scene too once things get rolling! :D
This crowd scene was the bane of my existence until I finally gave up and got it done... and it really wasn't that bad. I need to stop worrying about stuff :P
Dat jacket!! :D
@Bluezilla: LOL RIGHT?? I kind of wish he could wear it all the time.
Hell, I wish *I* had great manly shoulders and an excuse to wear a jacket like that all the time. :3
@Bluezilla: Omg, I'm so stupid. I think I figured out where I got Joseph's suit from: http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_04kZGR_ltmE/S8sTKkw4-oI/AAAAAAAAHGI/UYmZmEOLDrE/s800/The-Sting-M ovie-Robert-Redford.jpg
My favorite movie, I subconsciously am trying to insert its coolness into my own comic apparently XD
Wahaha. It happens, i guess! His coat actually looks kind of like your whole comic background too...
Joseph would probably spend all his time saying that Robert Redford is a great big washout. >.>
