pushing the envelope?
I suppose it's time for a #4thquartercomics 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.
@emilylorange both look pretty great!! love all the variety of color in the landscape
So I finally did it. 🐴 ✍️

Ever needed to draw horses but had no idea where to start? Does the thought of drawing an equine terrify you? Want to learn more tools to help grow your horse drawing skills? Then this .PDF is for you!
Designed to be as approachable as possible without getting technical.
Thank you so much for your support!
@szkin haha no worries. Goodness it's not like I'm super active either.
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 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!)
