Page 146

There are days when I've been hating the last page since the sketch but I can't think of a way to improve it, and there are days where I don't think the flow works at all and I wonder if anyone will even be able to read it properly, but today is one of those happier days where I actually quite like how it turned out, and I think it's probably pretty readable, and while I can think of a few things that need improvement [1] none of them are that bad. So yeah, I'm fairly happy with this one. It helps that I finished it early for once. ;-)

Also, I went back and shaded page 145. It looks a lot better now.

So, yeah - Amecon was last weekend, hence not getting a page. I managed to be totally exhausted or pretty ill more or less constantly since then, compounded with work being pretty damn busy (we have a deadline that was supposed to be a week ago but were still getting new features for on Wednesday), so I didn't really feel up to knocking one out late. On the plus side, Ame itself was great fun. I don't have much to compare it to, having only been to other Amecons and Aya in the past, but visiting American dignitaries told us that it was more awesome than most US cons, which is a nice thought.

I spent half the weekend dressed as Dyne from legendary Dreamcast RPG Skies of Arcadia, which was fun [2], got to see Ghost in the Shell: Solid State Society (which was silly and contrived in that typical GitS manner but still great fun), Le Portrait de Petite Cosette (which was... pretty; 'Good' in the same way that Shamanic Princess was good) and an early viewing of the second half of Karas (which was an odd blend of fast-paced sentai-style action and character drama. I'm still not sure what I'd call it if asked to stick it in a genre, but it was entertaining). Also won a Zaku fob in a raffle, got to spend an hour or so dancing [3] with a nice Canadian girl and obtained another couple of artbooks. All in all, a great weekend.

This week's vote incentive is Kotiya Sanae, from Mountain of Faith, the tenth[-ish] Touhou game. I can't believe how much drawing that picture made me yawn.


[1] And there's always some things which need improvement.


[2] And also very very hot. Perhaps thankfully, none of the people who photographed me seem to have stuck their pictures online...


[3] badly
