I'm not sure if it was intentional or not but the first panel has a very powerful effect. Not only is it very clinical looking and devoid of warmth but the child looks overwhelmed by her surroundings in a similar way to when she was lost in the crowd. Lovely work!
I remember years ago when I was about 15 being on holiday with my parents and a neighbour mistook me for the opposite gender. My mother felt very indignant and corrected her but secretly I felt elated.
Hehe Dogs are often handy to have around when you feel alone. :)
The atmosphere you've created feels quite warm and safe to me and the blanket is a sign of their good intentions.
I had just the same experience when I was young but in my own country, and it was just as scary because I was surrounded by strangers and nobody seemed to take any notice until my mum found me. Apparently I'd stopped to look at a window display and none of my family realised and just carried on moving through the crowd without me.
And the horses slowly move in!! I love how you deal with your struggle to draw horses by actually cramming more on the page, that's determination! :)

..And I just realised I'm all caught up with the story now. Sooo... yea, I've had a really lovely morning catching up with this and please don't doubt your writing as it's been a wonderful read as well as enjoying the pleasure of your beautiful artwork!
I'm way beyond the coming out and dating parts of life now but I think it's so important that every new generation of LGBT have sources like this to tap into and the fresher the writing no doubt the easier it will be for todays kids to relate.

What I have always truly LOVED about amateur webcomics, right from the earliest days is that the writing is honest and personal to the writer and so easy to relate to as well. When I first read Patricia Grullon's 'Friction' I was overwhelmed by the idea of real life LGBT people using art and text to express how they felt in such an open and honest way and for many people today it's still one of the best ways to connect publicly but also in a very private way, and that relationship between the writer/artist and the reader will always be something really special.
Luca sounds nice, I'll try and remember that from now on if that's what you prefer. I've drawn a fair amount of horses for my own comic in the past but I've used a ref every single time because they really are such awkward animals to draw (Give me a cat any time!!) As Linn says tho, I could instantly tell these were horses too so they can't be that bad!
@Karlijn: Sorry to hear about your relationship breaking up, that always a tough time to get through, so my heart is with you. *hugggs*
Love that wall of drawings you showed in such detail in the second panel. It took me a couple of minutes to stop studying it and move on!
Haha It's an interesting perspective. Lesbians tend to go for a more boyish look as a statement about their orientation whereas most transgender women understandably seem more drawn to looking as female as they possibly can.
That's a really cool look, I love it!
Sorry to hear about your grandma. I was about your age when both of mine passed too. Long hair can be a pain at times for sure, especially in hot weather, but I love drawing girls who have long hair as it feels so expressive at times.
Wow! Love her apartment!!
I have to confess I thought they were rainbow steps leading up from the bar, which seemed really cool! Love the idea of a rainbow crossing though, I've never seen one in the UK.
I was in a nightclub with some friends once and went up to the bar to get a drink and a really friendly and attractive girl just jumped on me and offered to buy me a drink. It was the first and only time I've ever been hit on like that and I was so taken aback I couldn't work out what she was up to and replied 'It's okay, I'm with my friends' As Soon as I sat down I was kicking myself inside for having shrugged her off so quickly!

Interesting point about being vegetarian! I think half the trouble with the world is that too many people are so convinced that their own beliefs are right, that it annoys them when other people disagree. Maybe it's because they are afraid they themselves are the ones who have got it wrong and they hate anyone for making them have doubts!
Your art has really come on in leaps and bounds since those early days hasn't it! Love Tanya's look, especially in that introductory panel.
It's the details I love most! It really helps bring a comic to life especially when it's a slice of life storyline.
Haha short and to the point! I like her!
