Hurricane City

by Lapsang
Strange things happen in Hurricane City. A storm rages fierce and constant in the depths of the great metropolis.

There are many rumours about how it began, as varied as they are implausible, but there is one thing everyone knows to be true: it all started a hundred years before, back when the city had a different name, it's citizens lived in plenty and optimism and the future seemed so very bright.

- On temporary hiatus due to uni work -
Will be back with a vengeance some time around/after Christmas.

@HABE: Oh wow, thank you! I'm glad it's effective. :) I notice you faved this comic as well so I though I should let you know that I'm currently re-doing it. It will be back updating in a month or two with a revised first chapter. :)
Love the flying Vespa.

I like how that surreal touch with the perspective pulls me into the scene.

Really nice work!
The update for today is actually four new pages replacing the prologue so please go back and read from the beginning.

It's not just a re-draw, it's a totally new scene rewritten to connect better with future events and plot points. :)
@eternalbeliever12: Thank you so much! That really means a lot to me as I used to be totally incapable of doing backgrounds and I've been working very hard to improve on that. :)
I love your artwork and your backgrounds are amazing!
Laaaate...
Had serious art block on this page and I'm still not happy with it... ah well, at least it's finished if nothing else.
After twelve again, whoops
Comparing this to the last page with Olive, I realised she looks quite different here. I hope it's clear she is the same person, she's just changed her clothes and brushed her hair.
The chap in the left hand corner does not approve of your shouting. >:(
Soooo, it's gone twelve and thus, technically it is Thursday... but I haven't been to bed yet so it still counts as Wednesday, right? Right? Yeah, that's how it works...

Due to bad time management I used up what little semblance of a buffer I had and it seems the universe tried to punish me for it. Think three days is plenty of time to do a page? Have an unexpected day of work sprung on you followed by spending the whole of the next day in A&E. That'll teach you to fall behind schedule.

On a more relevant note, I'm experimenting with how I do text and speech bubbles. When I finally decide what works I will go back and fix all previous pages for consistency.
Cold pizza fixes all problems
She has the attention span of a goldfish with ADD...
This is Olive.
She needs to tidy her room. For one thing, it would make my job easier, drawing all the little bits of rubbish on her floor gave me a cramp in my hand.
Random fact - I got the perspective reference for this by leaning out of one of my windows. Top left you can just see my other window and this is sort of like a fantasy version of my street.

I kind of wish it really DID look like this... although those walkways are clearly a health and safety hazard the council would never allow.

It begins...
Cover! I'm really not very good at typography - still not entirely satisfied with that title. I don't really know how to make it better though, so oh well. I can always go back and change it later I guess.
