There was a lot of trial and error involved in these panels. Let’s see. Panel one: I’d drawn Ethan turning halfway to Danbi, but what’s the point of showing the turning? There’s no significance to it. So a close-up on the stretched out hand it is. Panel three used to be two panels: Danbi’s expression… Continue reading 003-12
The glorious door that leads to where Ethan must… go. Here we start seeing bits of old art from the first version, which was never released in English. We will be seeing more of it throughout this scene. Hope the oldness doesn’t stand out too much…
Whatever you do now, Ethan, DON’T MESS UP YOUR AIM. Also, daily suyori maintenance job means not everyone can afford to have a glorious, shiny, moldy, odor-free outhouse. No one else in the village has it. Danbi feels bad for being the only one who has it. Because he’s been using an odor-free outhouse all… Continue reading 003-14
As some of you may know, there is a first draft of sorts for this comic, which I will refer to as “the old buffer.” Story-wise it’s mostly similar to the version you’re seeing, but in spite of that, most of the old buffer is unusable for one or both of the following reasons: 1.… Continue reading 003-15
Spot any familiar faces in the last panel? Here they are: Blond girl, red skirt: Tebetha from Silversong Chubby boy: now who could this be…? Poor boy hanging onto Ethan’s arm: Viktor from Tyree of Amarynth Cat face shirt: the boy is Hobbes/Dehaha1, who is not a character, but a (very supportive and awesome) reader.… Continue reading 003-16
Welcome to Keol, where cornrows = celibacy hair. I am simultaneously pumped and terrified to finally share this chapter with you guys. Let me know what you think! Constructive feedback is welcome. Once the material is too old for critiques, I’ll remove this note. Until then, please feel free to post critiques in the comments.
Meow. I hope that last panel doesn’t look like an underwater scene. It’s just a tree… a really big one with a glowy spot!
A long update today to celebrate 3,000 subscribers on Tapastic! I’m not actually at 3000 yet at the time of writing, but close enough. And better early than late, right? Speaking of being late… March 31st was the International Transgender Day of Visibility, as I found out a little too late. We’ll be meeting a… Continue reading 004-03
Figuring out the composition for this one took lots of trial-and-errors. Weirdly enough, it’s the seemingly easier panels that gave me the most trouble — not the THOK!! one (that one, I knew what I wanted it to look like pretty much right away). Overall, I’m happy with the result. The only thing that I’m… Continue reading 004-04
Very happy with how the very last panel turned out! I hope these panels are not too messy for colorblind people. “Rencho” is the Keolian mispronunciation of Vrenjo, which is what the cat-people call themselves. In the Korean version, this was further mispronounced as “Nencho” (넨쪼) as Koreans used to have a tendency to N-ify… Continue reading 004-05
