Paroled!!!

by Mr. Gruntsworthy
Born to a couple of drug addicts who didn't want her, and raised on the street, Alex Winter was shuffled around more than a deck of cards until she finally bailed from the System and joined the local gang, Brace. A place where she finally felt needed and had people she could trust.

But, good things never last. Betrayed and set up, Alex's life came crashing down as Brace was swarmed by cops. With most of her friends and associates now killed in the ensuing firefight or in prison along with her, things were pretty bleak.

After a year in prison, Alex is finally out on parole, and ready to set her life straight; but with no one to turn to, nowhere to go, and not a penny in her pocket, can she really make something of herself?

I'll draw about a page a week, give or take.
when is this coming out?

Title page for chapter two. Meet the other two main characters. More to come...
Critique? Well, when you put two big-chested women in a bar in an emotional scene like that, it gives off a yuri vibe. But that's just me.

And this brings Chapter 1 to a close, folks...

Another update. Two pages left until Chapter one's done!
OMG UPDATE
OMG an update. Now that the school year's winding down, I'm focusing on finishing up the first chapter and preparing the second's story.

Sorry about the ten day interval, guys. Holidays and all. Anyways, sans the first panel, this page turned out okay (I really need to work on my top-down views... -_-)

so, um... enjoy! Should be back to a more regular weekly-update schedule.

Yeah, I didn't get to finish the first chapter, but... in other news, I'm planning another comic project. This other one is going to be pretty awesome... and I guarantee it will be better than Paroled, as this comic has served quite well as a learning experience.

I am happy with this page, other than the screwed up positioning of the ear on Alex in the second panel.

The chapter is drawing to a close, guys. Are you liking it?

See the difference quality makes. Okay, enough ripping off Schneiders. I got to play around with some new art stuffs, such as my .3mm and .6mm Pigma Sensei tec pens, my white ink pump pen, and what has to be my most important addition, whiteout. :P This page turned out MUCH better than the previous couple, did it not? Even the flow and composition is showing well. :)

Actually, I prefer to draw on the smooth side of paper.

I like where your story line is going Mike. Great effort and detail thus far and reminds me of a time awhile back when you wrote that story. You had me hooked than too so keep it coming.

The piece of shit you see before you is the end result of using the smooth side of bristol-board stock paper. Let this be a lesson to you, kids.

It can't hold ink for shit except my dip pen,and at that the ink bleeds and spreads like nobody's business. The prismacolor shading turned out like shite as well.

I promise my lesson was learned from this page, try not to cringe too much from it. The next page will make up for it. -_-

I am extremely dissatisfied with how this page turned out. It could be because i was really tired today as I drew this page, who knows.

Ink smudges. Blargh. Hate those.
Author's Note
So, I couldn't upload earlier this week because I'm storming through mega-homework for school. It's end-of-semester, and in conjunction with all the homework and tests next week caused by that, I just started my new part-time job. So, I'm not sure if I'll be able to pump out a page next week. Rest assured though, I'll make up for it over the holidays! My plan is to wrap up the first chapter by January.

Anyways, save for some nefarious ink smudges, I think this page turned out very great. Enjoy :)
