Can't win all the time, I guess.

Whelp, weird things happen when cycles are broken? I guess?

@The Orange Cow: Thank you! :D It feels good to have time to update again, haha. Things don't seem like they're working out quite so nicely now though, eheh!

Haha, we haven't really had a lot of panels with lots of people in them so far (since most of the comic has been Biijan talking to a fish or this kid doing... whatever he's doing), so this was fun! Might have another page up later today; we'll see!

Hmm! The narrative continues again!

If you celebrate a holiday this time of year, a very happy holiday to you! If you do not partake in holiday-celebration, then I wish you a distinctly pleasant day as well!

@Three: Thank you kindly! :D The ink (and eventual watercolor when we move back into a color sequence) will probably take some getting used to, but, it's proving a lot of fun!

Looooove the new style! The shading in the first panel is lovely :)

Phew! Sorry about the silence for a bit guys. The semester caught me off guard entirely. But now I am off break and in the same location for a few days at least, so more pages to come!

Re: Style change! After some deliberation, I've decided that these pages are actually better in pure ink rather than a mix of digital and ink! I'll be going back and redoing some of the washes on the previous pages later, but for now, onwards!

@aqua the hedgie: Haha, this one's quite a bit different from Biijan, no? :D And thank you!
Well daaaaaaaang.

This art is still pretty.

The narrative continues! Played around a little bit in the way I'm inking, and still getting used to "toning", but hopefully it's cohesive!

@The Orange Cow: Despite my being sick, they actually went quite well! : ) Thank you!

Phew! Sorry about the small hold up there, everybody! Got kind of sick and then a few exams happened. Have another page!

(Will probably be uploading another page or so later today, too! One that isn't just... a mostly empty double spread. Yeah.)

@The Orange Cow: Pffttt. XD You made me laugh when I read that. He doesn't seem the particularly friendly type, does he?

The first part of a two-page update (does that make three pages total today? I think it does).

The second chapter begins! Where'd those super saturated colors go?

@The Orange Cow: Indeed! Sleep for Biijan~

And we've reached the end of the first chapter! Second chapter should be kicking off either later today or later this week depending on my class schedule.

@The Orange Cow: Yep! Fish gave Biijan some peaches.

@Merone: Thank you! :D Haha, figuring out a way to color those first couple pages was really a challenge...
