Hey folks, I hate doing this but there will be a delay on the page this week. (hopefully it'll be up Monday and we'll have a double upload week!)

There are like 4 billion characters in the next few pages and I didn't have faces for them so the page isn't finished and I don't want to half arse it because i'll just have a page of people that look like donkeys (which considering I can't draw Donkeys is impressive.)

In the meantime, enjoy this WIP of a post of Daisho. It's /kinda/ spoilery but we're not far enough through the story for it to hint at anything. I just wanted to draw a sweet background and cut his hair.

I also have a patreon, which currently has the wip of today's page if you really wanna see Donkeys, come and donate?

Daisho is nothing if not polite.

I'm also now regretting designing such awkward clothes.

Also, a awesome reminder that I have Monomi merchandise for pre-order over at my shop! www.paperplateart.co.uk

Chapter Threeeeeeee!

Nothing like traditional formal clothes and hair sniffing to start a council meeting!

Fun fact - Daisho is wearing the clothes he was originally designed to wear when I created him almost 10 years ago :O

@tiffpascal: Thank you so much! I tried to create characters who are each as awesome as the other. It's a great compliment to hear!

I LOVE the art style and character designs. It's refreshing to see a blend of aesthetic influences and different facial features. A lot of comics contain characters that all look the same except for hair and eye color. Wonderful expressions!

Hey look, Onna has a personality! Background character no more!

For a chapter titled "The Exams" no one really took any.

Tobu is suspicious this is a trap. Tobu is suspicious most things are a trap but carries on anyway.

Welcome back to Daisho's class.

Tobu's head is forever alternating size. I imagine it's her brain thinking up clever comebacks.

Also I was sad that most of the bubbles covered up the top panel so have an unbubbled version here: http://sta.sh/01aa2ss6mgkr

Despite her flaws, Tobu is very good at what she does. It's just a shame it is usually disobeying commands.

So I've now moved to doing the comic entirely in Clip Studio (before I had to do it half and half in PT sai and PS) but Clip Studio does everything I need!

Tobu is the best person she knows.

There won't be a comic upload next week as it's the Christmas holidays. ~I feel for anyone working retail this time of year, if it makes you feel any better I won't be an annoying customer because i'll be working all the time too ~ ;A;

You're gonna get schooled, about school, yeah. Sit your ass down and listen. (class sizes at this school are temperamental at best, I imagine Onna snuck off for some lunch while they all being dramatic.)

Sorry for the missed update last week folks, The day I left for Japan my Wacom stopped working. Took me almost 6 hours to fix when I got back.

However, I just got a Surface Pro 4, Clip Studio and Photoshop CC so I'm gonna be learning some new stuff like a boss.

And then everything changed when the Fire nation attacked.

I go to Japan in 4 days and I'm frantically trying to get the pages ready before I go so ya'll don't miss me too much..however, there are a lot of students and...scribing? in the next few pages so it's taken a little longer than planned - so enjoy some cryptic backstory to the cafe owner and her Oracle wife!

@Poppy: Thanks for the comment! I didn't realize I had forgotten to add the description, this has been added now.

The text is larger and clearer on the more recent pages but I shall make sure to keep mobile viewing in mind for any future pages!
