Hi

If anyone is keeping track of how many times characters blush, you’d better update your chart today. And let me know who’s winning: Biiku or Maddy? 😳

Is this the Meet Cute? Or was that earlier? How long does a single instance of Meet Cute Last?

I hate drawing backgrounds

I spent an inordinate amount of time on this page, mostly banging my head against the wall trying to figure out the best way to draw a new complicated background that would be seen from multiple angles and with a zillion background characters milling around. Also, UGH, background characters. 😭

I don’t have a great solution as it stands, but I got to the point where I knew I needed to just suck it up and draw some off angles by hand and let the perfectionism go. It was becoming an excuse to procrastinate and get all anxious over nothing. Anyway, it’s up now! Page 50 is already inked, and 51 is partly inked, so let’s see how quickly I can pump those out if I stop giving myself an aneurysm over the cafeteria. 😤

Read the mood, Amanda. GEEZ.

Slow clap for Amanda, bein’ a real friendo rn. Good job reading the mood. Also, I lied last update. There’s one more page in this chapter after this page, then we’re on to Chapter 3.

Seriously

There’s only one page left in this chapter! Not counting this one! Chapter 3 takes place in a new setting sooooooo… I’ve got some backgrounds to draw, y’all. It’s outdoors, but I don’t know if that makes it easier or not. I haven’t decided how much city background you’ll be able to see which is the biggest factor. While I don’t want to be lazy, I also don’t want to spend 20 hours creating scene backgrounds you won’t actually be able to see properly anyway.

I’ve been fighting a migraine all day, so nothing witty down here. Carry on, friends.

Ms. Singh is pretty cool. Good sense of priorities.

I almost named this page “Disgusting” but I thought it was a bit negative to follow up “Blech” with, especially since I, personally, don’t think Nancy and Kevin are being all that gross. Okay, maybe a little.

Page 28! I’m pretty happy with this page, to be totally honest/conceited. It takes me a long time to complete a page, but I really don’t want to half-ass them. It’s a difficult balance because I don’t like making people wait so long for the next pages, and I also realize they’re not as artistically well done as some of the pages that other ages-between-updates artists create. For example: fuck multiple light sources. Just… NO. On the other hand, I puppet warp a lot of patterns to make clothing look like it actually moves with the body, and I personally really like the effect and feel like a total hack if I don’t bother to do it.

And, like, thank Tsuya for LAYERS. I use so many layers. So. Many. LAYERS.

I promise Maddy gets to speak again soon! She’s a quiet one, that girl. She’s actually a really hard character for me to write because she’s so quiet and I’m… not. Like, at all. Amanda, on the other hand, pretty much writes her own damn self.
