:D Another exciting chapterrr! Whoo

And some people hate anything to do with taxes, pshhh.
There is no way the dialogue here could get any better C:

unlesss.....
This is so awesome. This deserves wayy more fans. D:

Zombies own.
This comic needs more fans, post haste!
I AM OVERJOYED BY THE FACT THAT GURREN LAGANN, E7, and DEATH NOTE ARE ON HER WALLS
whoa... That teacher/principal went a little voldermort in the last panel. What with the claws and long neck and body cloaked in darkness. <3
lol I wasn't planning on sleeping tonight anyway.


This comic is cool beyond reason.
So pretty!! I love the facial expressions and everything. I feel bad for him D:

I still can't get over how intense and awesome this comic is.
OH MAI GOD. I want this on DVD mail order to my house :PPP
like the cover? this was the first drawing I had ever done of Ro!
He looks so stoic... :P

Ro's hair has grown longer from the prologue because at the time it took place he was eleven C:
This kid's fourteen now and he's geared for winter! He bought (stole) a wool shirt (in the same color as his old one... o.o), bought (stole) some protective arm cuffs, and bought (stole) long pants (also in the same exact color. he likes purple and blue a lot, I'm guessing?)
I'm starting this comic off in winter :O we'll see how that goes.
I love this comic already XD
Oi I wonder what's wrong with his roommate...
D:
oh lawd

Fav'd because I like your art style!
d'aww he's so awkward

and she's too cool to live, I love her hair

This comic is hilarious |D
ohmahgawdd
:P awesome

and the hat has fallen somewhere and been forgotten in the first panel :D
the last page of the prologue!
that was fun to color...
I actually don't know if the rest of this comic will be in color! we'll see.

Things I want to improve upon:
Tighter dialogue. even though this was just a prologue, it does set the mood for the whole comic, and one of the things I sort of regret is that Ro's train of thought may not be as clear to you as it is to me!
Scenery consistency. I need a better swatches system, if the objects in the background vary even slightly from scene to scene it disrupts the flow of the comic and makes everything seem choppy or even disconnected. this problem is made more obvious when color is added. There are a couple of things I could stand to fix about the backgrounds in these pages to add to the 'sameness'.
Length. Somehow I feel like this prologue should be longer, but I'm also happy with it's length
Character consistency. This speaks for itself. my main char., Ro, needs to look the same all the time, even if I'm drawing him from a different angle he shouldn't look like a different person.... This problem was sort of alleviated by the fact that this was Ro's monologue, so we know he's the only character speaking in every panel.
setting. Where is Ro in this entire prologue? well, even though it was unclear, he was outside of this abandoned shack/cabin he's been sleeping in, just thinking about things. At this point, Ro is only eleven years old, though when the story starts he's fourteen. This house in the woods doesn't really haven any significance to the plot: it's just another pitstop to take a rest from travelling so he can go to the next town he'll steal from.

My main problem with this prologue is that it paints Ro as a more thoughtful, wistful person than he really is. When Ro is around other people, he's not nearly this open. He's quite the guarded, obnoxious kid and in the next part of the comic I'm definitely going to illustrate that!
I didn't update yesterday at all so I felt bad! two pages today! :P next one in a little bit
Okay I love this comic.

TVTROPES IS WIN AND IT IS AWESOME THAT SOMEONE MADE A FREAKING TROPE ABOUT THIS COMIC.
