Listening to: Chilly Gonzales - Self Portrait ♫♪
(He's featured on Daft Punk's latest album, a fantastic pianist, and also pretty good at rapping and singing. He also goes by simply "Gonzales".)
I finally finished this 3rd of 4 folders just now. I am so happy right now: less than 10 pages left, in the last page of script, and 33 pages done. I'm so tired of this chapter that I'm definitely taking a break between this one and chapter 3.
Also to my lack of knowing, the relatives staying over here are not saying for 3 weeks, but a single month. So far it's been nice to see them. But because of this, I didn't work on pages for almost a week, and I got super rusty due to that. It was then I realized: no way am I letting anything get in the way of finishing this chapter in August.
Bleacher nightmares, bleacher nightmares for life.

When I re-sketched the Liam panel, I imagined a meme caption of "I'M SO HIGH RIGHT NOW". So great.
So, 8 more pages. Can I do it this week? Well, finally my graduation party is happening on Saturday, so I don't think it's gonna happen. Hopefully next week!
Finally the video-recorded process of this illustration has been edited and uploaded! Please check it out at some point! I worked super hard, yo.
If you wanna see how a shit-ton of ruffles gets drawn and colored, this will enlighten you
on the hell it really is.
Listening to: Siriusmo - Tränen aus Bier ♫♪
I'm so sorry for not updating in the longest time. Super focused on finishing chapter 2 as soon as I can, and feeling incredibly unsocial.
Also forgive me for the lack of screenshots. Not sure why I haven't been taking as many this time around, but whatever. Have I been working on anything else? No, not at all. Quite honestly, I really want to get this chapter done and over with. Considering I've been working on it since thumbnailing for the entirety of May. Let's just say I want to be able to make a chapter within 1-2 months. I am feeling pretty awful taking 3 months now.
I haven't found a job yet, which might be a testament to this area just not having anything illustration-based. (Looking up job listings of "illustrator" and seeing just web and graphic design has been very discouraging.) I'm going to revamp my commission prices, and hopefully get something out of that. But yeah, starting next year I want to be able to move somewhere else with more illustrative opportunities. And I am really tired of living where I am. Sucking the life out of me, I swear!
BUT YEAH! Chapter 2! Working hard to finish that! Starting the 23rd, I won't be able to work on stuff as much due to family members I never met flying over here, and staying for 3-4 weeks!
