The Ugly Duckling.

by Heidi
Inspired by the original story "The Ugly Duckling"
-------------------------------------
Drake Pond is a high school boy who suffers from social anxiety and chronic schizophrenia. He has transferred to many different schools in order to find a place where he can finally fit in and truly belong. Although he struggles to live each day, there is still one thing that gives him hope: his passion for swimming.

End of part 1!
Thanks so much for sticking around!! It's going to take a while before I work on part 2, so I'll be posting extra stuff (character pages, concepts, extra illustrations, etc). You can also check out my other comics that I will be updating in the meantime!

@M-24: I am so glad that people notice these things. :) Drake is also another word for a male duck.

And same here, I also really wanted to show the whole contrast between illusion and reality

I see what you did with her name~

Very nice comic btw, I've never actually read something with a schizophrenic character before so it's very interesting seeing his point of view.

He has paranoid schizophrenia, so he sees things and has many illusions

I was trying to make it look more like a school rather than a disco party, and decided just to add the bell

I just wanted to say that it's been a while since I've been on this website and posting comics (due to school work and just other things I was busy with in life), and it feels great to be back! I almost forgot the feeling of uploading and drawing comic pages..
