@cornchipwarrior: Thank you! They're doing good, it turns out my grandpa just had UTI. Still sucks, but we thought they got into a car accident with how incompetent they are with driving, and with the fact that they weren't answering their phone.
@Bloomer: oh I hope that they are alright!

Sorry for the late update, my grandparents wound up in the emergency room, and we didn't find out until a couple hours ago. So we went to see if they were alright.

Anyways, yay update! I'm so tired!

The xmas pic is on Tumblr if you wanna check it out again.

Whoo, starting the new year with a new page! Thank you all for sticking with this strange, slow, extremely flawed comic! I'm not good with mushy stuff, but I just wanted to say I appreciate you all, and I hope 2018 brings more exciting content, and growth than the previous years!

@IronDog: Aw, thank you! Dealing with Julian has been a little more challenging so far, so it's nice when things don't come out as too "try hard-y"? You think with me being a tired grouch, it'd be easier portraying a tired grouch than an alcoholic adult-child. Lol.

There is so much to comment on here! Firstly, that water is a thing of beauty. Secondly, the pose where he is relieving his back is /tremendously/ well done, anatomy and clothing creases and all. And lastly, you have portrayed someone who has dealt with psychoses for so long that he's mostly just tired of them perfectly in two panels. I am so impressed with your work. Thank-you, again, for sharing your skill and knowledge with us.

Work at your own pace! I'm just enjoying the journey. And that broken up tile lining is fabulous. Thank-you, gel pen! Some things just can't be faked as well.

Thanks for putting up with that lame Xmas thing! I'll take it down when 2018 starts.

I would have given up on that floor a quarter of the way through.

Sorry for the not very exciting page. This being the only page where my gel pen sometimes working actually played to my advantage was pretty cool!

@IronDog: Ah thank you! I sure hope so! xD Honestly I can't tell myself, but paneling and perspective sure has gotten easier. The better I get a drawing things the more chances I'll take on doing weird stuff.

Your panels and layouts have really tightened up since the beginning. I'm looking forward to exploring his side of the story more!

I'm just gonna get the ball rolling a little early with these. You may or may not have noticed, but I changed the title a bit, I also drew a new cover if you wanna go check it out. The old one was kinda hideous.

Thank you all again for your patience, also don't forget to go back and give those awesome guest artists levels of attention only stalkers can provide!
I have some new social media sites for my mildly changed comic, please follow them if you're interested in updates, WIPs and drawings!

I decided to post this a little early. This page looks sooo much better irl...

So that's the end of chapter 2! What is your opinion of the comic so far? What do you think will go down next chapter? What would you like to see more of?

Apollo, APOLLO! Check the other set of doors!

One more page left! -seizes-
