🤗 Hi people! I'm Emily (she/her) and I draw queer fantasy comics. My current webcomic is Cocoon, updating with 5 pages on Saturday mornings! Sorcerers deal with new magic in their peaceful valley, and things go sideways. All over.

I promise I'll have art to share soon... (if I'd stop drawing one character in particular I'd have doodles to share.)

how many times can I watch the yuri on ice movie trailer?
correct answer: a million.

Here are some trees that I drew recently. (I've been working on the new comic and I promise it'll come soon. Just need a new plan for posting.)

update- I should have something to show for all of this work soon...? I need to figure out a posting plan.
I also should doodle things that aren't spoilers so I can post those...
hmmmmm...

The pumpkin bread has been made. Smells like fall.

Guess who just wrote an assignment due in 2 days... in 30 minutes. Whoops. I totally forgot it was due! Gotta just push through these things.

I suppose it's time for a update...
1- Figured out the cover image. Took a while.
2- I've got a few pages done, still debating one panel on page 2... But I'm in full production mode.
3- Taking the thumbnails to full size is really fun, but I'm stopping myself at a certain point... trying to save some fun for myself.

I'm usually so on top of everything, but I wish when I had to fix something, I didn't screw it up further.

I forgot to do something in July. So I did it yesterday.
And made a mistake on one number.
So now I have to deal with the government machine a million times.

So I finally did it. 🐴 ✍️

#Horses #Art #HowTo

I've spent a million hours prepping this comic... and I finally started working.
Here's the first panel.

Update for the next comic:
1- It's 250 pages now. Oh well, that means I get to have 50 pages more of fun.
2- I got colors for most scenes done. Just a few wonky ones that I refuse to touch until I get there are left.
3- I need to redesign one character, and make one. But they show up pretty late, so that's okay?
4- That's it.

(I'd apologize for my recent silence here, but I'm not that sorry. I'm focusing on my comic and getting a lot done. Some part of me decided to add 50 pages last week, which was great, but meant reworking page layouts again.)

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.

As expected, lesson planning takes a long time when the district gives you incorrect Google slides presentations.
It's getting in the way of drawing...
grrr.

I swear the amount of giggling I've done while working on this comic is much more than any other comic.
I hope that's a good sign.

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.
