Chapter 2 – 23, 24, 25, 26
Don’t forget to check out the COMIC OF THE WEEK, which is Lapse. Lapse is pretty dang pretty, and pretty dang awesome. If you liked Between Places, I think you’ll really like this one. The art is soft, but very expressive, capturing a dreamlike state that perfectly fits its ghostly supernatural shenanigans. One panel of an oncoming car really struck me when I was reading it as being particularly beautiful.
So yeah. Ghosts. Spirits. It’s pretty cool.
Sorry if I scared anyone! Being stuck in an inability to do art state was very depressing, and quite honestly, I still can’t use my arm quite well enough to be doing art for any length of time–and I had a ton of commissions backlogged too (still do, really, but I’m picking away at them in between trying to do a bit of comic art). It’s the same old, same old. Shoulder goes numb if I do art for too long. Working on learning to use my left hand for some of the art. Some of this page/pages was done with my left hand. :) I’m really tired right now but in the next day or two I’m gonna swap up the vote incentive to a painting done entirely left handed. Wooosh. I’m right handed, for the obvious record.
You may note there are several painted bits on this page. That is for one major reason: I don’t lose sensation in my arm quite as fast if I paint, something about the pressure it puts on my arm being different, I guess. I kind of regret right now that I did decide to ink everything, because I think I’d have been able to handle putting out Between Places style pages.
So yeah, I’m gonna aim for an update on Friday, because an awesome reader blew up my bonus update bar. I’m not sure I’ll be able to finish a page or two in that time though, so if there’s no update then it’ll probably come next Tuesday. I’ll try. We’ll see. I’ll try fix the bar tomorrow too. It should be at like… well, actually it’ll be at 15. Lol. THANKS, YOU TWO! :D :D :D I will try get you extra page soon but for now enjoy the four pages to make up for most of the gap.
Genesee: You do art? :D Sorry I scared you, and sorry for the delay. Anyway, nothing is torn. I have a full range of movement. Just something is kinda out of place. I’m not in a position to go get professional medical help, though, not at the moment.
Auron: Thanks for the compliments. And I should hope I don’t attract the Bad Webcomic Wiki. That would mean my comic is bad and not just mediocre. There’s no sin in THAT. As for learning to draw well, well, I got hauled to art lessons against my will by my mom and turned out to be really actually fairly good at it. Or more, it turned out I enjoyed it, then I spent a lot of time being very bad at art and just kept drawing and painting, and eventually got good at it. Art isn’t some miraculous talent, it was really just quite a lot of hard work that I put in. So if you want to do art, draw a ton. Start a crappy comic (the best thing I did for my art was starting my first comic). Try new things, don’t stick to any one thing (ei: anime, or cartoons, or comics, or impressionist art, or realism or anything). And in order to break rules, you have to learn them. It’s a good idea to study stuff like color theory and stuff at least a little bit. Other than that… get your hands dirty, do it wrong, listen to criticism, try new things… eh, it’s all just a lot of “get out there and do art”.
