I started this comic when I was 12. I'm currently 28. Let's see if I can finish it!

I'm an amateur webcomic artist, Disney fanatic, and catmom to an obese tabby and hyperactive siamese who regularly runs into the wall

We're finally back with the main characters! You may need to go back and read chapter 5 again (Kira and Richard had a fight that feels like it happened a million years ago :P)
So I managed to forget what day it is. But don't worry! I'll be uploading another page past this one on Friday evening.

This concludes chapter 6. I wanted the Hiboshi (H) pin to tie together this backstory, and show why it was significant that Bell's grandfather took it away from her when she disobeyed him. He's not a good person, but he's also not pure evil. He loves his granddaughter but his love is controlling and often cruel. It's certainly no excuse for his behavior, but hopefully this sheds some light on his character.
I like the two characters saying the same thing acting as a cut scene between the two locations/ story lines

@FriendlyNeighborhoodWriterMan thank you so much! The good old days of using GIMP because it was free and I was a broke kid in high school :P

I wanted the 3rd panel to convey a panic attack, with him only being able to hear some of what she's saying

I'm hoping that the passage of time is clear in the last panel. I tried to do this page with minimal dialogue

Starting from this page on I have gone digital (but I let some of the original pencil sketch show to keep that traditional media look/feel). I've tried to keep the art style as close to the old pages as possible. Hopefully the transition isn't too jarring :)
@FriendlyNeighborhoodWriterMan haha Kaori's self-intro was when she talked about how she's so smart and plans to be the greatest sorceress in the world. So humble.
@FriendlyNeighborhoodWriterMan thank you! Her design was influenced by Inuyasha. It was my favorite anime when I was younger.

Haha yeah ... page layout was probably my biggest struggle. If you can bear with it, I promise it gets better as the comic progresses!
@FriendlyNeighborhoodWriterMan thank you so much!! Your words of encouragement mean so much to me. It can be lonely drawing a comic and your comments really brighten my day :)
I'm really proud of this page. Being able to shade on a tablet is just mind-blowing after years of only a pen and pencil.

Soon we'll get to pages that I've done almost entirely digitally (starting from the inking process). I think it looks pretty similar to my usual style so hopefully it will not be a jarring transition.

Thank you so, so much to everyone who reads this! It means more to me than you could know.
Keepin' it respectable
@ FriendlyNeighborhoodWriterMan Thank you!
That's such a kind way to look at it!

Haha yeah I was 12 when I made this (I'm 29 now) and knew my art was a bit hard to follow, so I added arrows and labels, and I had to number the panels because they often didn't flow well.

I still enjoy looking back on the old pages :)

Sometimes I think about redrawing them but I kind of like being able to see my art get better over the years
@FriendlyNeighborhoodWriterMan thank you so much for reading and commenting!

I'm always down for a comic with magical siblings! I'll check out your work :)
