It is, however, goodbye to this scene forever. Oho!
No clue on the ETA for the next scene. Sorry for the inconsistency (though if you've been around here for any length of time I'm sure you're accustomed to it). It's just, like, it *should* be fairly straightforward, but there's a lot of those stupid incidental background details that are the bane of my existence, so I'm expecting it to be another one of those scenes where I get the foreground and a vague background sketch out REALLY fast but then inking takes a century.
It was a good scene. Man, I thought it wouldn't get more emotional than that in this chapter after the gang walking into the sunset but it diiiid. Now I'll worry if the stables get truck by lightning or a stray arsonist while Eddie is away or something. 8(
And pff, I can relate! Every time I get a feeling a page should be straightforward something happens. Like I usually expect Piss Business to take ages because of equipment but switching to the main plot doesn't seem to make much difference even now when the scenes are as mundane as it gets.
@Oly-RRR: LOL. I can say that the stables' worst days are behind them, but I can't make promises as to the future safety of Eddie's car (that would just be dull storytelling, wouldn't it? :P )
Hahahaha isn't it the worst though?? Like, you think something will take ages so you allot a whole mess of time and expect it to take so much effort and then it's a breeze... but heaven forbid you assume the inverse because then it's like some Buddhist balance making up for all the times you floated through a piece.
Some good news I may as well put here- I started sketching the next page!! So far it's off to an alright start *jinxes self* and even though it's not flowing out like butter or anything it's not, uh, fighting me so far? Though I can think of a "hilarious" alternate ending for this first page and am debating whether or not it need be shared XP
@mitchellbravo: IS IT MARIE. Marie carjacking and drink-driving it. NO DON'T ANSWER but I'll keep coming up with theories. :D
...also I totally need a character who got some serious injury as a result of crashing a car they just stole. IT COMBINES EVERYTHING COP STORY IS ABOUT, HOW DID I NOT THINK OF IT SOONER.
And yes, exactly! So glad to hear about the next page, keep going! And I'm almost done with flat colour so it's at least some progress.
@Oly-RRR: Piss Business is an actual thing? I thought it was simply a mockery movie poster!
@mitchellbravo: Dress with patterns, at least two kinds of trees, colored finger nails, detailed hands, consistent height differences! You have outstanding detail!
Also, the stable is destroyed by stampeding squirrels the very second the leave.
@Squirreltastic-Blue: Piss Business is very much an actual thing that's currently in progress, and you are welcome to follow a banner in my profile and see if for yourself! :D
PS @mitchellbravo: MITCHELL I AM SORRY I AM PUSHING MY COMICS ON YOUR PATCH BUT YOU KNOW YOU ARE MORE THAN WELCOME TO PUSH YOUR COMICS ON MY PATCH we are like buddy mobsters that way X)
@Oly-RRR: I WILL ENJOY EACH THEORY :D
I have a dumb car story planned at some point in the future but it's so far off.
AND PUSH COMICS ON MY PATCH PLEASE XD
@Squirreltastic-Blue: Oh heaven's sake I wish I had consistent height differences but I'm glad it comes across meaningfully anyway!! :') Lmao, I love the idea of that happening as soon as the scene changes.
*shoves Squirrel and Oly action figures together* MAKE FRIENDS.
@mitchellbravo: An hour later both action figures have punk haircuts, felt pen makeup and are riding plastic dinosaurs! :D
...what, it's a legit writing method! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OHPQ2Miir4A
@mraab: Thank you!!! And oh man, it looks like you read ahead in my scene notes XD
