Drawings I did in class. This was developmental counseling where we did our presentations, creating a lesson to teach to two different developmental groups. The class assumed the role of whatever group we were teaching to while the one classmate gave their presentation.

There were a lot of crayons.

GUEST COMIC!

Marr has been so great to make a guest comic on such short notice! I’ve been busy with finals! I have most of my stuff done but a 5 page case study is looming overhead!

mikemoseskim said: Hey there! Great work, but I'm sure you get that a lot. What I do want to say though is that it takes a lot of time and dedication to fully flesh out a comic. It's so easy to give up, and I give you mad props for following up on Parisa. It's one thing to actually continue a comic, but I'm very impressed by the way you handled the story, and the characters are outstanding. Please keep up the good work!

OMG TY! It’s so nice to get comments such as these!

This has been planned for years and I can’t imagine giving up on this. I have too much fun learning from each page <3

There is much more in store, stay tuned!

intrepidillusionaire replied to your post: thinking about character proportions I…

Good luck with finals!

Thanks dude! I don’t have tests or anything (any real ones. One instructor gave us tests that we can straight up cheat on, while another gave us one in class and ‘subtly’ gave us the answers because she hates busy work)

I just overestimated the amount of time I had available. I have two free full days of work that I’m going to go into overtime with. It won’t be fun but I can do it!

thinking about character proportions
I used to feel bad that I would draw similar things over and over but it&#8217;s just fun. I should try making more dynamic scenes and work on my composition but it&#8217;s just calming to draw these weenies. They&#8217;re going to show up in the next few chapters.
Anyway, I&#8217;ve been thinking about how I would keep these characters proportions consistent. Nolan and Gwen are easy because they&#8217;re so similar. Julian is as tall as the kids. Jessie is one head over Julian and Jiro is a half head over Julian. I won&#8217;t keep it really tight otherwise I&#8217;ll over think it.
Also I plan to simplify the backgrounds a bit. The last page of Parisa makes it really obvious how much the characters in the foreground are practically floating which is not what I want. Backgrounds are simpler for me to do if they&#8217;re painted rather than sketched so I am going to try to do simpler blocks of color rather than painting them. That way the foreground and background won&#8217;t contrast so much. I want the focus on the foreground but I can&#8217;t make it look like they&#8217;re so independent of each other.
ALSO&#8230; I&#8230; Probably am going to miss my next update. I have finals and won&#8217;t be able to update this weekend. I have 3 (two final projects and a practicum) projects to finish by sunday night and a practicum to finish after that. I&#8217;m doing well in school but I&#8217;m not going to miss any due dates for the sake of my webcomic. If I skip the update, I&#8217;ll supply two pages the next week. (since I will have time)

If anyone wants to submit a small guest strip, feel free though there isn&#8217;t much to go on at the moment.

CHECK OUT THE LATEST PAGE HERE!

OK SO I DIDNT FINISH the page before I left for seattle. I&#8217;ve been too busy to make my buffer sadly. THE PAGE IS STILL SUBMITTED BEFORE IT IS SUNDAY, HOWEVER!

Once school is over for the semester I will be able to keep to my saturday morning schedule better.

I&#8217;m at a friend&#8217;s place and I had forgotten to send the color palettes to myself as well as the lineart so the color may be a little off compared to the previous pages.

A quick reference page I drew up for someone, I may as well post it.
