Went back and reworked the opening pages introducing Cyan. I did these pages in December 2014, after a who-knows-how-long hiatus of the comic. So the art was a bit rough as I was just getting back into things. I added in more backgrounds and replaced the greyscale with screentones. Check out the result below:
So this evening I sat down to work on the comic, and ended up rereading much of the archive from Figaro Castle to the Returner's Hideout. A lot of the pages were cringeworthy. It was very obvious to me that I half-assed the backgrounds way more than I should have. But reading the comments was very encouraging. It warms my heart to see all the kind thoughts and comments you guys have left over the years. Its also interesting to see the responses to comments that the 2011 me wrote. They are in more-or-less the same "voice" that I have now. Which is comforting. I am the same person.
It's so stupid. I keep wishing for more updates, wanting the story to keep moving. I forget that new pages only happen when I work. And tonight, I did no work! Augh!
Oh, and in other news? This weekend I am visiting New York City for the first time! It's about a 6 hour bus trip from my city. I got a few things I want to see but will not stress too much about a schedule. I expect just being there will be enough to overwhelm a newcomer.
Tumblr users can get their comic fix at the new website, www.ff6comic.com, where I post new pages on Monday and the occasional post about the process. This week you can read about how my newly inked pages got caught in the rain and I was afraid I lost them.
Thanks for reading, everyone! We keep moving onwards and upwards. No where else to go. Will see you Monday with a new page!
