probably not working on my comic, probably should be.
This page seems as good as any for askign questions- How do you come up with the names for your characters? Especially those that are, like, less likely to be found on those collectible keychains at gift shops?
@Squirreltastic-Blue: XD

@JFP: Thank you for your kind compliment!! I work mostly traditionally except for some color modification and "cleaning up" that I do digitally after scanning. Lineart is just regular old pencils and then Copic multiliner pens, then color is added with Prismacolor or Copic markers and then Prismacolor or Derwent colored pencils. :D

@Oly-RRR: I've done this way, way too many times..... not to Freddies per se, but suspicious visitors in general....
@JFP: :D :D :D

@Squirreltastic-Blue: Aerosmith, unofficial band behind Loud Era
@Oly-RRR: XD XD That makes me think of the line from the song "Hey Baby" "with a stranger in my face who says he knows my mom and went to my high school...." :P

Oh bless I'm glad to hear that, we'll see. Since coloring this page I remembered a few tricks I used to use for many of the chapter 6 pages and might peruse some of my books on coloring again.

Luckily for Freddie he is deliberately irritating rather than unintentionally irritating (ironically considering this is happening to Marie which I guess makes them good foils.... writing idk???????) He's been fun to draw although I FORGOT TO ADD FRECKLES AGAIN. I guess he looks alright without them though :/

Yeah it was really weird, like Marie was barely a few shades off from her own hair meanwhile Freddie looked like I used an actual red marker on him. Never had such an issue before and I'm not really looking forward to dealing with it again in the coming scenes when there's many more faces that will need to be edited D:

I hope she'll give him a chance at a second date D:> D:>

aaaah this is super fun and cute and I'm so glad I've caught up and can follow along now!!!!
I hear the whimsical chaos music increasing in intensity as we enter the densely populated room of people eating...
He's rubber, Toivo's glue....
Her neverending rictus smile is cracking me up.
Can't hurt his internal Robert.
OH MY GODDDD <3 <3 <3 ;;;;;;;
Love the hatching/textured shading, esp. in panel 1.
me when I run into a former student outside of school
The character designs are so sharp I can "hear" exactly what their voices sound like.
If he turned around and saw her in the window like that D:

We'll see if I can have the next scene up and running before the wedding.
I keep repeating the same compositions over and over. Or at least it feels like I do. Bleh!

Hate the way this page turned out but gum drop it I'm posting it....
Freddie's face in bottom left panel makes me almost want to update my avatar.

Yeah, I was gonna wait until next week to post and just do one update a week, but this isn't exactly an action-packed scene and I might as well just start uploading pages as they're finished. Even if I have a buffer I'm not going to "use" it so why bother with the pretense that I will?

Also, this scene has been irritating to edit because I'm using a new (to me) scanner whose interface doesn't allow as much pre-scan manipulation, so everything scans in much more washed out and the colors are a bit off and I have to mess around with the color balance a lot more than usual. I got it more or less okay as far as I care but Marie is still a bit too Simpson and Freddie way more sunburnt than they both look on the physical page.

Next page soon...
Freddie's lucky he came during the day rather than in the middle of the night.

I miss drawing Marie's hair shorter like that.

Sooooo in the past four months I had a full-time but temporary teaching job and also moved out of my family's house and into a new apartment with my Leon-looking fiance and the wedding is in barely a month.
Next page will be up next Monday/Tuesday. I miss you guys.... Thanks for sticking around, if you have.

(Also I got my hundredth fan on SJ???? But because of the new site structure I don't know who it was :( :( :( :( well thanks anyway :) :) :) :) )
@Oly-RRR: Ugh real life is impacting super hard -_- I'm catching up on backlogs of forum posts from weeks up to a month ago... on the bright side I'm finally well settled in (a few things need to be acquired but it feels properly like home now so) and I've been able to work on the coming scene!!!!!

Yeah it's like one of those moments where maybe on a better day you can just put it behind you and move past and kind of laugh it off but it's hitting Leicester right in the heart today :( :(

LOL. God, now I'm imagining a universe where the characters we create can actually read the comic and interact with us (you know, not just in our minds in imagination-make-make form....) XD
