Changed the shading style to something that’s both less detailed and less ominous. I like how simpler shading also makes it easier to control the composition.

I keep letting myself drag this comic out though :(. This was supposed to be a quickie, darn it.

Girls girls girls.

Trying to do some stylistic exploration. I often let small, jokey comic ideas go undrawn because I don’t have many ultra-simple ways of drawing humans that I’m happy with. So… I think I should work on that.

Wanna see a super misleading work-in-progress shot of a short comic?

My internet went out last night so here’s a WIP post for yesterday. I’m penciling a 4 page comic! I wrote the first draft of the script in 60 seconds on oneword.com based on the prompt “oak.” I’m trying to do the whole thing quickly as preparation for the impending 24 hour comic day in october (although I really won’t be able to work on it again until sunday).
