This page involved making a lot of changes. Some to the writing part which mostly showed up elsewhere, and some to the art. The most obvious of course is that the main character's hair style changed. That's right she has a lock of hair loose on the right side. I know that it got knocked out in the comic and she could easily put it back. But she won't. That's right I decided to change her hair style and just used this strip to do so. Even better yet I planed on changing it the whole time, and most certainly wasn’t bullied into it by her. A few of you might also have noticed that I changed the format of the comic too. I originally wanted to do a more classic newspaper strip but it meant I had to make the comic really small and since each original drawing is usual somewhere around 7”x10” to let me get the details right it was no extra work to make the comic bigger. So I flied it around and now it should be easier to read. You will have to scroll down of course but if you reading this you already figured that out. Last and least I changed the figure I was modeling the main character off of to make it a tad less realistic since I was doing the faecal expressions more cartoonish and didn’t want to fall into the uncanny valley. Tell me what you think of the changes, the jokes, or anything really. There arnt a lot of people here in the middle of no where to talk to.
to things to take note of.
1. I went back and added a few pages before the plot started and those don't count as far as any numbering goes. this is the 4th page.
2. the first 3 pages were originally all horizontal and this was the first page to change from that format. thus explaining Robin's shock that the second panel wasn't there. (although as they are formatted now panel two's location would still be a shock but she would not have needed to spend as much time looking for the others).


I'm your first subscriber. Love me.

But seriously, I like the cartoonish look, but it's a little long. Maybe consider making it a bit smaller just so there's not as much scrolling involved. Also a little bit of color might be nice.

But overall, I like the direction this is going. :)

thanks for you advice. i do plan on playing around with the overall comic size. i want to have enough room for all the dialogue with out making the people too small but i also want it to be manageable. as for color i want to wait till i get a little faster and it doesn't take me all day to make a comic. then ill probably start with epic strips or Sundays in color. and of course i will have to work the main character commenting on it into the script. she would never let something like that go with out a word as you will see tomorrow.

Haaah! 4th wall. I like that joke, If you check out my Mad Dog comic, I too broke the 4th wall in the 10th issue! It's fun to do that sometimes
