She should move out with Fenella!

I'm glad you're creating again. Having an outlet like art does wonders. I think the page is good and some change up in style/technique comes with the territory. I think of all the changes that occurred artistically in my own comic (some intentionally, some because of limitations in my tools).

It's been a while. During the past month I've only been working and sitting at home, feeling inadequate and empty inside. I wasn't feeling satisfied with my style or excited about working on this project. Rather than trying to hold on to a style I didn't love, I allowed myself to experiment a bit in this page, and suddenly drawing was fun again! Let me know what you think of this style. I used some different stylistic elements as well as colouring techniques and schemes.
@kidcthulhu: I sure hope so! The best art is personal I think. Although I wasn't struggling so much when I wrote this scene, I still found it important.
It always amazes me how much of our real lives bleeds into our comics/art, usually quite subconsciously. This is a great page, man. I wish you luck in your finances (I know what that's like all too well). Remember, art will find a way ^_~
Sorry for the late update, I got quite busy with my new job. I wanted to participate in the pride month contest Tapas was hosting, but I didn't have time/energy for that either :( what are you gonna do when you live in a capitalist society and you need to pay rent so you don't end up sleeping in the streets (I'm of the, to some, controversial opinion that having a home is a human right, just like food and water. I also haven't been eating anything but pizza's from my work because I have no money for food). Also related to money: I'm almost out of watercolour paper (after this page I can finish two more pages before I run out) and I'm not sure if my paycheck will allow me to buy new paper, or if I should save this money for the daily costs of living and surgery. We'll wait and see if this comic goes on hiatus or not.
Isn't it neat how my financial struggles coincide with Chris's? I'm sure it will be fine. I can't wait to have a salad instead of pizza haha.

@Luca+: You could say it also has to do with what sort of people you're with too. Some are very emotional and open, some are more fun and games. Or they could be like mine- greeting everyone they like with 'Whats up, virgins!' XD

@Linn: Hahahah I would feel the same way, I'm super suspicious of new people XD

This is sweet, she has a couple of great friends. Honestly they're super understanding. Almost so understanding i'd almost expect there to be some sinister motive if i was Fenella xD!

@kidcthulhu: Glad you think so! You're right about that, it's easier to get to know a person/character when there's fewer people so they have a better chance to shine :) Some people thrive in big groups, some need more intimate settings.

Happy Pride Month, man!

I don't feel this page is redundant at all. Quiet, vulnerable moments like these help define characters.

In my own comic, there's a rather large group of teenaged friends that are often split out into pairs or trios to reveal more information about them. It allows the readers to see a side of a character that's not always easy to show when you have five or six people in one scene.

Happy Pride month!
This page might be a bit redundant but Fenella needed a moment to speak comfortably with someone in the group she trusts :) although she's quiet and doesn't know what to say, it will be a pleasant memory. As someone who's usually quiet in larger groups (read: more than two) I can confirm that we are quite comfortable being quiet and just listening.
This souvenir will help her... se souvient? Translating mid sentence to make a joke doesn't work as well as I'd hoped. My French is super rusty too.

@kidcthulhu: Thank you!
It's sad we have so many limitations placed on us because of money :/

Your watercolor style really shines on this page. Especially all the brick & stonework. Great job!

I wish I had the energy (and the money ^_~) to go places too...

This weekend is the Utrecht Canal Pride, I was unaware that pride festivities are already starting in some places. Hopefully I'll have the energy to go.
@Luca+: You’re completely right.
Uploading today too because of the inksgiving event on Tapas :) (and also to make up for the lack of updates during the last weeks)

<rant>
The waiting list for endocrinologists are 5-6 months at the gender clinic I go to and my therapist hasn't even finished evaluating me yet :') people can do so many regretful, permanent things to their bodies (tattoos, breast augmentation, children...) but for some reason trans people can't have this autonomy. Why? Because of the small number of people who regret transitioning? Why isn't there the same kind of gatekeeping for other big decisions? Or maybe let the trans people themselves decide whether or not they want therapy and counseling. Why do I have to talk to someone else for months to convince them that I'm really unhappy and my body hinders me a great deal?

@kidcthulhu: Thank you! No, I googled some 14th century castles and castles in France for inspiration (since I based the landscapes on French/central European landscapes), but it's mostly my own creation :) In the end I don't think it really fits with the 14th century era anymore, but I suppose castles were upgraded through the centuries just like we would with our homes.

They are lovely, I imagined this being one of the tourist attractions that goes all out and makes their employees wear themed clothes haha

I love the detail you put in the stonework! Is this castle based on any particular one? Maybe one in Holland?

And who doesn't love a good Ren Faire? ^_~
@Linn: I did take some time during the last few weeks, I feel better today so I'm trying to make the most of it and finish some pages XD
