@kidcthulhu: Thanks :) the problem I have is the background, I have references for backgrounds like this but I somehow always forget to use them and I can't be bothered to draw perspective correctly.
Yeah! Some familiar characters should appear soon :)
Well I love this cover! It's so vibrant and everyone looks great.

Is this the chapter where you borrow friends' characters for the crowd scenes? ^_^

I'm not entirely satisfied with this cover, but it will do. I can't wait to introduce some of my favourite characters in this chapter!

@kidcthulhu: Thanks!
It helps me write my stories if I think up little details about their personalities like they are real people :) Most people on the cast page play a pretty big part, I'm not going to include everyone probably.
I haven't decided on which characters I'll use, but I definitely will!
That last panel is great! She looks so serene.

I like Janis's profile. I have too many characters to make my cast section as detailed as yours though ^_~

(Speaking of characters, feel free to use some of mine for your crowd scenes. I have plenty for you to choose from ^_^)

And with that the prologue is finished! The next chapter will start next week :) my offer still stands if someone would like themselves or their character appear in the background in the Pride chapter! I can't just keep drawing myself in every background like I do with my other comic.
Also, I updated Janis's charcter profile a couple of weeks ago already: http://another-love-song.smackjeeves.com/cast/

@kidcthulhu: He doesn't have a good gaydar at all and he rarely makes assumptions, but he knows enough gay people to never be surprised when someone comes out. After all, anyone could be gay.
I'm doing much better, thanks. I rested and took vitamins :)

Yikes! I hope you're feeling better, Karlijn.

I like how Kadan doesn't even bat an eye at "I confessed to a girl." He's had his suspicions about our heroine all along, hasn't he? ^_~

Smooth transitions into new topics. But what do I know about transitioning?
This page was supposed to go up Wedenesday, but I forgot and yesterday I spent all day throwing up and feeling miserable. That's one way to spend ascension day.

@Linn: That's genious XD I love it
Amaya doesn't like dresses, she only ever wears them in the first chapter when there's nothing else available to her!

@Karlijn: http://s3.amazonaws.com/media.drunkduck.com/users/Udyr/assets/comaya.jpg something like this? But with a dress of course :) (A merge of Amaya and Coco!) I just did a quickie in my sketchbook and fixed it digitally.

@Linn: To be fair, I kill plenty of my own characters so it wouldn't even be a big deal, depending on which character of course XD
I'll be looking forward to your interpretation!

@Karlijn: Haha nice, thought i was the only one nerd enough to do that!
I got tooooooons of upcoming alien crowds so i might slip some into that, but just as a warning- all of them are crew and some might not be so lucky. Ill try not to accidentally kill off any of your characters on-screen XD

@Linn: I do the same thing! I have folders for every character with references for hair styles, outfits and photo references with some specific shapes I think fit their face. For Le Vite I drew seperate pieces of clothing I could combine, like a real closet or one of those dress up games XD Hiroshi wears the same things very often haha. I have a tendency to get bored drawing the same thing though so I give them different outfits and hairstyles :)
That would be so cool to see haha, it sounds easy enough if you put it like that XD

@Karlijn: Yes exactly! Personal research for different styles is the best! I do that too, like i remember as a kid i hated when stories had characters wearing just ONE SET of clothing the entire time. Though its cool to see the different clothing used over and over but in different combinations, like real life, it shows characters DO have limited clothing options.
I keep a folder or two with clothing i like which i name after characters so i know what styles to use for them if i need inspo!
Also I could make an alien out of some of your characters for Extinct, i mean, its just to add some limbs and antennas XD

@Linn: Same, but I really love all the different eras and their fashion. In this comic I put more research in each character's personal style and their tastes :) There will be a retro/pinup girl for example as well as more modern fashion. My personal favourite style is probably more grunge/modern alternative as well as 80s because it's so dramatic XD No shoulder pads in this comic though. Maybe next time.
That sounds like a nice challenge, turning other people's characters into aliens XD Turning aliens into humans should be doable! I figured it might be a nice way to give the webcomics I like some attention as well :)

Yeah was about to say. Janis Joplin xD I'm sort of inspired by vintage/retro stuff myself, always had a thing for bohemian clothing and interior. I mean I draw sort of bohemian styled clothes in my own story just with a bit of a apocalyptic twist to them. Rags and flowy clothing. Got toons of inspirational fashion pages for it. Its so much beautiful clothing items in hippie/70/boheme style. My absolute favorite :D oh and i just noticed, if you need a background character youre free to use mine if you want to.. Though most of them are aliens but I mean there's haven, crystal and lara++ o guess. I got that issue with wanting to use peoples ocs in the bsckgrouns of mine cause humans are extinct I'd have to make them alien if I feature someone's characters haha. Actually I did do a human Blaze as background character at some point in gmmw. Done a few human sketches of him, actually xD just add/remove alien features and bam: background character!

@Linn: Her parents more than her, they even named her after Janis Joplin. Janis herself is more modern but she can appreciate hippie culture (although it's more apparent in her taste in music than her clothing) :)
They live on the countryside, everyone lives far apart! They can't see each other's houses from their own home and Fenella only saw her when she went "for a long walk" with Dobby. I'll take that as a trademark, animals are one of my favourite things to draw now XD I can't imagine a comic without them!

@kidcthulhu: Thanks! It took me some time to get used to drawing it!
I'll do that :)
