Hiroshi loves his family. Today he'll visit his sister Amaya in prison, but things don't go quite as they were planned when he leaves. The "who dunnit" aspect is the main focus of most detectives, for the people close to the victems the "why dunnit" may be more important. The past can't be changed but maybe Hiroshi and his family can learn to understand it.

The comic will, for the biggest part, be in colour and it's made entirely traditionally.

@kidcthulhu: I learned German in school for two years, but I really didn't like it. There definitely are some resemblances between the languages but I don't think they are that much alike. I don't know much Klingon, but I guess it helps if you don't speak either language XD
I heard some people said Dutch was the ugliest language, I don't know if that's because of the words or the way it sounds since it sounds kind of monotone. In English (and a lot of other languages) you use much more tone variations.
Actually, I think all the dialog goes well with how the art is arranged. Plus, we needed the info, so it's all good.

I have very little experience with Dutch, but it does seem very similar to German (I studied it for 5 years in school) which always seemed very similar to English to me. My parents have a friend originally from Holland and the first time they heard him speak Dutch, they said it sounded like Klingon!

Lots of speech bubble in this page, moving back to Hiroshi and his emotions. And what does Amaya's look mean?
I remember thinking "violence" was a beautiful word when I started learning English, it sounded pretty but I wasn't sure what it meant. It sounds sort of soft and melodic I guess? I can't imagine the word violence sounding violent, contrary to the Dutch "geweld". English is a much more beautiful language.

I just finished watching Stranger Things and it's so dark and good. Seriously every single scene has a reason and is necessary for the plot, the suspence is built up nicely, the characters have depth without being too much, just the right amount of information is revealed at a time... I'm amazed, there were very few things I didn't like or that seemed off.

A lot of times you don't really have one good reason for acting the way you do, there are a lot of factors and giving a simple answer to the question of your motive will be hard. For Amaya it's a combination of childhood jealousy, a need for thrills, recklessness, emotions, and who knows what else. It's easier to just answer "I don't know."
@kidcthulhu: It seems several people were, but I could never kill off a dog :)
I confess, at first I was a little worried about the dog...
Another page because of the tipping event that's happening on Tapas today! And hey, Amaya didn't hurt the doggo!

What does any of that mean?
I hope everyone has a great summer and those who are still in school are enjoying their summer break :) I thought I'd darken that summer mood a bit by sharing this page.

@kidcthulhu: Thanks, but I finished the chapter a couple of weeks ago so there's a bit of a buffer. The last couple of weeks I've been struggling to finish even one page!
The idea came to me last minute, but I thought of that too. Even though I may redraw the character pictures at some point I like the way the page looks right now :)

For someone with no energy, you've pulled off an amazing page here, Karlijn. I have more than a touch of SAD myself, so I know what exactly what you mean about weather melancholy.

I also want to say I just visited Another Love Song's cast page. I love how you set it up! The silhouettes remind me of when you unlock playable characters in a video game.

@Snowwater: Thanks! :)
I just hope the weather gets better and my summer break starts soon! All should be fine in a little while :)

A beautiful page like always. I hope you feel better soon! <3

What's this? Did Hiroshi suddenly become sensible? Of course Amaya will at least try to prevent him from doing the right thing.
I feel so tired and I don't have any energy to do anything. So far summer has been grey and melancholic most of the time, it makes me sad and tired. I hope the days will become brighter soon.

Oh and I made a cast page for my other comic too! So far there's one character on it XD

@kidcthulhu: That's good to hear :)
I have an idea for the ending but I haven't written it out yet, I struggle a lot with the script since I went in without doing research or thinking ahead when I first started. But it's definitely supposed to end at some point, I just don't know when yet!
For what it'd worth, I found no issues following the flow of the conversation.

I'm very curious to see where this all leads. Do you have a conclusion planned for this comic or does it just continue indefinitely?

Sorry if the order of the speech bubbles is a bit unclear in the middle. I really like Amaya's current style, looks indeed better on her than pink.
I'm working on the first pages of my other comic and the script of chapter 7 and 8 for this one, it's all very exciting for me :)
