I am pretty happy with how the first three panels came out. The last one the perspective got really wonky and I'm still not pleased with how to draw grass, esp. long grass, but I think it's clear enough.
I think Loud Era uses the phrase "over-exert" far more often than the typical webcomic, but then again I can really only think of one other time that specific phrase was used, so maybe it's just me.
Hope you enjoyed getting to spend a little more time with Joseph's dad! The next scene is shorter and in some ways less technically challenging and in some ways moreso???? Who the hell knows! See you before the holidays though, I pray!
Good call, Mr. Harper, good call.
And you seriously have to stop pointing out what you think of as weaker sides in descriptions - unless it's something specific you're looking for feedback on that's just no proper way to present work you put hours in. Like there are things about the last panel I REALLY LIKE and things I'd do differently working with marker only (I could put them in a PM later) but it's one of the things they tell you about presenting your own work - unless you are asked to point out weaker sides don't draw attention to them, because it's impossible to get everything perfect, "perfect" is subjective anyway and YOU ARE A MARVEL! :D
These last few pages made me smile. I remember being 10 and begging to be able to use the lawn mower. It's blended in now with all the other chores around the house, but it still is my favorite thing to do around the house because it gives me some time to think by myself for a hour or two.
@Oly-RRR: Ahaha It's just a habit of mine because it kind of makes me feel happy to talk it out for some reason, though I'm not sure why!! It's almost like by saying the things I wish I had done better, it's as if I did the whole thing perfectly anyway. And it does occasionally spur some good feedback from you and others which is truly invaluable, it's not me having a pity party and feeling bad about my drawings, I promise!! :P AND THAAAANKSSSSSSSSSSS
@General.Hankins: I used to plead with my dad to let me do the lawn, too, and he never let me because, IIRC, a rock would go into the lawnmower and get shot out at my face. I do love raking, though, even though we usually have had a working leafblower, there's something really peaceful and meditative about raking the yard all together. Shoveling snow is comparable but a bit more of a workout, and since it's colder out it's always a bit more miserable to do anyway.
I'm right up there with the General. Love mowing the lawn. On Grandma's Ranch, she has a 1/4 mile-long driveway with grass shoulders between it and the fences that parallel it. One side is an even 4 foot wide swath of grass (I can get it in two passes with a push mower), the other side tapers down from 7 feet wide on one end down to one foot at the other. Have to do it with a push mower because it's sloped and you really can't get a riding mower down there without beating it up. Very therapeutic work, though! And good exercise as well.
I don't know if you're still working on this comic but I just wanted to let you know I've really enjoyed it thus far! I hope you'll consider giving us an update on the situation regarding it.
