Not Pure Beauty

Not Pure Beauty

by kumikoangeloflight
Read from right to left

Update: Every Friday (or Saturday)

It seems to have been confirmed that Misumi is the less than average invisible chick with huge glasses! But is that really true after the events that will collide with her life when she tries to confess to her crush of 2 years?

This is a story about a high school student named Aizawa Misumi who constantly tries to approach the guy she has liked for two years. However, now that she has gained the courage to attempt it, every attempt is a major fail and something always seems to get in her way. Such as her strange new neighbor, a cocky smart alack and a tanned delinquent.

Is she just plain unlucky or is there something else going on behind the scene?

"All in the name of love! Commence operation *Not Pure Beauty*"

Genre: Comedy/ Romance/ School Life

Author Note:This is my very first online webcomic~! Thanks for reading~

Changed the background. Was kind of tired of seeing the old one. I kind of like this one (the red and beige color scheme). What do you think? Do you prefer the old black and grey color scheme?
Post Tomorrow
Tomorrow I will be uploading the second page. Since I have a new desktop now, I still have small things I have to transfer over from the laptop to this one. One of those things are my tones! It always seems to be the small things that are forgotten. :)

See you all tomorrow.
I ended up getting back home really late yesterday(instead of the intended Friday return) so here's Friday's update.

Also, I'm thinking I'll try to post more than one page every Friday if I can. I think the process will be fairly slow if I post only one page every Friday and it seems to ruin the flow, right? Well, this is something I'll consider later down the line and if I can do it, I most certainly will.

If any of you are like me with webcomics here, you will probably just go back to the beginning and read the entire story through up until the final page with hopes of the next few pages coming out in order to find out what will happen next (or am I the only one who does this haha). So this is the reason I'm making this decision. So if I can only post one, I will post one. If I can complete and post two or three, I will.

Anyway, thanks once again for your patience~

See you next Friday! :)
@WindowMaker: Ah, I see what you mean. Yes, I'll try that the next time Misumi is thinking and see how it looks!

Yes, I'm finally back. :) Thanks for reading~
Ah! You're back.

Yes, I think all-caps would help. And I think off-bubble text like "Her idea in the first place" on the last panel should be in all-caps too.
From here on out, I'll be trying something different with the text. Everything will be capitalized. I hope it will help with being able to see the text (especially for those reading this on their mobile devices)

Update day! I know I'm a few hours late, but today was a snow day. Afterwards I just wanted to rest after shoveling snow (there's was so much!!). Anyways, yesterday's update is here. :) I'll see you the week after next.
READ: LEFT ---> RIGHT

**The piece of paper on her head reads ANA*

I actually had this page completed for last week! I'm shocked! I opened the software and saw this and was like "Oh! I could've posted this page!" I'm always happy to be updating a new page. I'd like to post everyday, but I don't think I have it in me to be so dedicated haha

If you want to know why I was able to post so often years ago, it was because I use to draw every single day! No kidding. Nowadays, I've gained new skills and I'm practicing those as well. So I can continue to be traditional I'll sketch or work on this webcomic :) So I don't draw as much as I use to, I try not too due to another fact, and that's that my wrist would start to ache.

Anyway, final announcement! After the end of this chapter it will be on hiatus. I have another webcomic I would like to start here on smackjeeves. Don't worry! After the first chapter of that comic is done, I'll come right back to this. This has been plan of mines for a while now. I have two other webcomics in mind, but the new one will be focused on fashion. This is the only hint I'll give!

As always, thanks for reading!
Firstly, Happy New Year!! :)

Finally a new page! If you haven't checked out the news section for this webcomic, the reason I haven't posted is due to the cord for my tablet going out. It wouldn't work anymore. The whole story for not posting is this, old laptop's motherboard failed, tablet stopped working, holidays and working on other side projects for my portfolio. The projects are slow moving, but any progress is better than none.

I had originally wanted to post this page two months ago, as I also had another page I wanted to ink, but I constantly had to mess around and twist my old cord in order to get it to work. .So I just settled on just purchasing a new one from amazon, and since I have prime, it arrived within two days. :) So that's why this page was posted not too soon after posting my comment to the News section.
Another hiatus
Hey guys! At the moment I'm typing from my tablet because my laptop's hard drive is not working! Unfortunately I can't get on my laptop at all. I believe I've backed up some of my previous pages for chapter 5 however I didn't backup the most recent thumbnails for the future pages.

So I'm trying to get the family's old desktop computer to connect to the wireless network, but I have to either buy or find a connector. I also have to save up money to have my laptop repaired.

In other words I'm not sure how long this will take. I'll keep you posted, but I'll have to figure out how to update my news section from my tablet for now.

I'm seriously bummed out by this, but honestly the only way to move is forward. So please be patient once again as I try to work things out here.

Thank you!
Updates will be every Sunday! :) Also I'm back! It's been almost an entire year, but I'm finally back. I think the most difficult part about not doing this for a while is relearning the program, but surprisingly I remember most of the tones I used.

Anyways, let's get back to it. For now updates will be one page per week, but I may post more depending on the amount of pages I have done.

So please enjoy. Sorry for such a long wait!
Sooo sorry the page is late. Of course yesterday I couldn't post (please check the news section), but today I felt completely drained. I had worked on inking this morning and I ended up taking a nap that lasted longer than needed, and I was still pretty exhausted when I woke up. But I'm better now :)

Also, I'm waiting to hear back from my school about classes. I may take off a week or two soon to work on some of my other projects for my portfolio (I will need these projects for my upcoming class). My classes don't start until Oct. 3 but I'd like to work on them during my summer vaca.

I'll let you know. Oh! And btw, I wanted to say that I understand the previous chapters ended so abruptly, I was trying to tell a story within a limited amount of pages and it kind of didn't work out! I decided to just use as many pages as needed to tell the story I need for each chapter like I did in the previous chapters (I think it was about 30-40 page chapters the previous version, as opposed to 25).

So this chapter will be a lot longer.
=_- I hate drawing backgrounds.I give it to people who draw full blown backgrounds. If I had the patience and tolerance, I probably wouldn't mind. But I don't have the patience lol especially when I already spent enough time inking and toning.Oops! Pardon me, my laziness is showing *covers self*
page 2
More pages tomorrow :) I'm going along to pick my sister up from the airport so I may make it back home a little late.
A simple page, but I had a lot of fun drawing this :)

Anyways, let's move on to Chapter 5! It's about time~~!! Sorry I'm late posting this page.

Also, if at any moment while reading this pages (or attempting to read) you find that the text is too small, please let me know :) I'll fix it right away and re-post the page.

That's all for this chapter!

It's rather short, isn't it? Well, I decided to keep the page count between 20-29 pages, that way I stick to only putting what's needed for the story. I decided this mainly because I have no editor, so often as I'm going over my ideas and the script I'll think "is this part necessary?" and of course that leads me to constantly refining what I already had written.

In any case, I hope you enjoyed this chapter. I'm more so looking forward to the next few chapters!

Also, I'll be going on a temporary hiatus. I may be back in December, but if not than then I'll let you all know in the News Section.

For those who don't know I"m down to my last two quarter of college, so I'll have to prepare a portfolio. To not get distracted I decided to take a break from this webcomic. Yet, as many of you already know, I always say I'll return, so I do intend to return.

Thank you so much for waiting for me to post these pages. I hope you all stick with me until the end of this webcomic. Thank you for reading.

See you in December~!
I had a lot of fun drawing the last panel! The original thumbnail didn't look anything like this. Then I thought "why not draw Misumi's perception of them?" and then this was born!
