So I thought I would give shading by hand a try as I think I mentioned earlier. Long story short it took a long time. While I didn’t have to ink which I have always found a bit repetitive it took a long time to draw and still took a long time to do on the computer too. Part of that was the more complex layout I tried and part was that a choose to go with a darker shading rather then keep most of it closer to white (I've never been happy with my drawings when done that way even if I like others doing it). I might try again to shade by hand but I will probably wait a while before I do. For now I want to build up a buffer again and maybe have some time to go on a hike after I'm done with the comic for the day. Between how long it still takes me to finish a page (over 7 hours today), family visiting on the weekends, and taking part in the artist roulette on comic fury where I will start another comic, I am leaning towards the idea that I might only be able to update 5 days a week. Even if I do have to change the update schedule I will still be trying to make at least a page over the weekend so I will have a buffer. I am just not sure if I will be able to do two pages and would rather have a page up my sleeve to give to you later if I get too much buffer then miss a planed update.

The shading looks good, and her face in the last panel is priceless. :D

originally i wanted to show her eyes popping out of her head but it didn't look right so i settled for a middle ground of simply wide eyes. I go back and forth between thinking its looks too stiff and liking it so I'm glad you like it.

Good choice. Robin is cartoony, but she doesn't seem looney toons cartooney, more like Japanese anime cartooney
