@Luxnight: There's a few things to consider, if you're asking in seriousness =)

Most of eye emotion comes through what the eyebrows are doing. Eyebrows say a lot. Then there's how wide the eyes are, how much of the iris is visible. How focused the gaze is (how close together the pupils are and such), and how small the pupil is, too. A large pupil conotes emotions such as sadness, or love, or calm, etc, while a narrow pupil conotes anger, or fear, or surprise, etc. Then there's surface aesthetic stuff like shinies which make things look nice, or drawing shinies in a way that implies the eyes are watery from tears (which I shoulda done with more care here probably, kinda forgot). I also find making characters irises paler when they're liked shocked or angry or wtv helps get the feeling across better since it accentuates the small pupils thing more, even tho it's total bull lololol.

And that's my impromptu eye emotion tutorial =D
@Zelkova: That's really nice of you to say. Don't worry though, you and other readers of this comic do really make me feel happy to work on it and make me feel appreciated ^^ It helps a great deal. Thanks a lot for the support!
@Danny: Yeah drawing her drawing on the floor gave me bad feels xD

Man writing artists is easy 8D

Drawing characters interacting physically is generally difficult, but drawing a character carrying another is extra difficult. It's not only taking into consideration the 3D forms of the characters (so that say arms are going around someone rather than through them), but also getting the balance right so they don't look like they'd topple over, and choosing the most natural pose the character would take, depending on how heavy who they're carrying is, so that things don't stand out as unusual. Don't think I'm trying to say I'm really good at this or anything, it's just that there's been a lot of people being carried in the past couple of chapters so it's on my mind.

Comics are all about having to draw difficult things which you probably wouldn't under other circumstances, and not being able to get out of it. That's something that makes them good for learning.

The thought of drawing with nothing but the floor to lean on grates me. Even Atty just using his sketchpad rubs me wrong... I take two hardback books to lean on for when I'm out and about drawing. But I am very particular.

Who's this sexy beast
@The_mad_one: Oh right, forgot to say. He's like a guard who appeared way back in chapter 2 and 3 or something? Felt it'd been a while since we saw him xD

Even Atty wouldn't leave her hanging.

Dang it's been a while since I drew these guys xD

Atty being more talkative when he's talking about art, bless. Also he's one of the few artists who doesn't fukken hate their own art.

Some people just can't give creepy henchman the trust they deserve.

Atty is a photocopier artist. He draws what he can see or what he remembers.
