Safe trip! It's hot here in Cali!
Have a safe trip! Don't worry; just take care!
Technically I won't be leaving till Sunday, but I'll be really busy Saturday with last minute cleaning, packing, and visiting my grandparents for an early Father's Day lunch. Sooo I may as well be gone that day, see you all soon!
Sorry if y'all are getting tired of the promos, this scene won't last toooo much longer.
Apollo,your friends are concerned.
So much talking! -groans-
There's going to be so much talking in this scene I can't even.

Because it is all about you. Clearly.
That sass.
Oh my. So there is still some recognition there.
The droomoo!

@IronDog: Pff yeah, Apollo is bad at picking up emotions, and Julian is bad at communicating. They're so in sync.
Julian communicates so little with these responses. No wonder poor Apollo has no idea what's going on.
-insert old stuffy Englishman joke here-

@IronDog: Gaaah tell me about it.

@totter: I don't know what you're talking about, Julian is obviously the one pining for attention~
I like making the voices in their head different, and more wispy, since they're... in their head. It makes the voice feel more fake.

Aww, thank you! I can see why, color pencil can be a real pain to work with sometimes. It takes a lot of time to finish, and you go through them fast, so it's not really practical to use them. I just like to because I enjoy working with them despite the cost and consumption of time, and color pencil stuff can look really nice when done well.
im pretty sure we all know who the attention whore is here
also why is little Julie speaking in the smoke?? its a strange way to portray his words ig and just wondering if it holds any significance
im not sure if i have ever complimented your texture but i really dig it i read buttloads of comics and its not something ive managed to see elsewhere (but thats like this whole comic its really something excellent )
Intrusive thoughts can be nasty sometimes.
How you can make a scene like this look so beautiful is beyond my grasp.
Apollo is best main character, 10/10!

@totter: Oh lol, no need to apologize, I'm sorry for the misunderstanding. Yeah, I'm an incense burner so I've always had a bias towards the look of that kind of smoke. It always looks so pretty, and soft, and smooooth~ Despite how lethal and stinky it is.

This spread did take a bit, but it wasn't too bad since I didn't fully render the flashback panels. Oh good, there will be more weird scenes with Julian as time passes in the comic. I wanna do a slow burn thing where Apollo notices more things as he learns to pay attention... also Julian's stability just... worsens with the added stress of Apollo's presence and other things.
i wasnt necessarily saying that its your thing but that you make it look beautiful like some other artists i know of
but i can b bad with wards so sorry it came off that way and that you've been around dicks
also i get that Apollo wants to be close and thats cool but hes gotta stop being so him around Julian or at least stop drinking for 5 seconds
im really lovin this page but it looks like must have taken forever
still think that page 10 is my favorite though probably cause im really interested in julian's mental state
Move over Dennis, there's a new menace in town!

You might have to open the image in a new tab to see everything.

@totter: Well... I mean, I like the look of smoke, and I thought it would be a creative way to do some panels, but I wouldn't say I'm an advocate for it. Actually I kinda hate smokers, last one I knew dated my mom and he gave her permanent lung damage because he smoked in the car with her when she had bronchitis, and refused to put out his cig. He used to also blame us and get mad whenever we coughed during his smoking sessions around us.
So yeah, not really a fan. Even with how much I like having fun with the look of it I'll still be showing Julian hacking up their lungs and such, and their habit will be a problem later.

@CarlitoChico3: Aww thank you! I'm glad you've been enjoying my comic so far! :'D
