I gave in to my desires- and added 50 pages to my comic length. Just felt like the story was expanding and I wanted to include some details. Feels great, if only because staying in the space of "everything's possible!" feels great.
Environment development is done... changed 2 pages to make it more fun in the process. (cackles)
Next up is practicing characters in those locations. Especially sitting poses.
Got plenty done this weekend! Hurrah!
I even went ahead and made the layout and color plan for the hardest scene (inside a kitchen good store).
Never shall I force one of my characters to work retail, if only to avoid drawing stores.
Got more color prep done today.
Then I realized I haven't given any thought to one location yet. At all. So that's the plan for tomorrow.
Managed to do a bunch of location prep today and yesterday. Still have plenty left- typical of my work.
The good news is that I did a lot of it in 3D already- and did some thinking about colors back when I wasn't on zoom all day.
(I need to stop thinking only about the last few pages though! They're all important!)
I'm in Zoom from 8:30 to 3:30 today. If I'm still mentally alive after that, hopefully I can do some color plans.
I really need schools to reopen so that I'm not in zoom all day.
It's back to school time... back to RULE SCHOOL 👩🏫❗

Cool! But don't flood the local timeline, we want everyone to be seen. 😄
I'm starting my #4thquartercomics studies off today, with my incredibly reflective toaster. I swear, you could use this as a mirror. Beside it, we have a random lemon (or was it an orange?) and the butter dish.
I thought I would hate our kitchen tile but it turned out to be a fun challenge.
My main issue is that I'm student teaching and taking 4 classes from September to December. That's a lot on my plate, and I know that I won't be able to draw as much. Thus, my expectations are lower in quantity terms, but I plan to push myself quality-wise.
So I'll be doing this. I already started my next comic in July and am done with thumbnails. My plan for September is to do a lot of studies and other preparation- color plans, clothing changes, and whatnot.
Then I can start on pages when I'm ready!
I encourage yall to subscribe to Alphonso's channel, I recently did and he's so helpful WRT inking. Inking is really hard for me and he makes it so accessible. https://www.youtube.com/c/ALPHONSODUNN
