So, I wrote out the ending scene....
Then I poured a glass of wine, climbed into a bubble bath, and cried.
Sometimes I wonder if I'm cut out for this.

, I have released page 10, and with a new kick -- thanks to *Sigoya
's help, I finally have a proper desktop with a professional color display!!
That means, no more burnt-looking painfully bright pages with crispy colors and crap. (Unless I just suck... so no more excuses.)
The pages that I've done so far can't really be saved to the extent I'd like them to be, so I just took each one and reduced the contrast by 50% while using a "protect tones" filter... the result is pleasing, it's the same bright scene, but you should be able to see much more details now.
I must say, I loved my laptops, all of them, but there is something about them that makes colors look lighter in hue than they actually are... which means by the time you print or view on high quality monitors, all the details are washed into black. Never again.
I've also saved the tones of the three official character designs I've done for Shailah, Kai, and Kurité... they were more recent though, which means they didn't have my shitty skills dragging them down and were much easier to fix.
Now, as for what's coming...
I'm almost at the first point of conflict, the all-defining scene that fucks shit up to the point of no return... I'm not able to work very quickly with such a crazy schedule, but next semester I'm dropping one of my jobs and taking 4 credits less... and with the script written (!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
) I can finally begin to buckle down on some serious artwork.
Expect at least one more good freak-out about the script, though.... in the next couple of weeks, I'm going to be giving it one last thorough run-through to tie up some scenes that haven't been fleshed out word-for-word yet... but it exists. I could write a synopsis if needed. That's pretty sick, if you ask me. I never thought I'd get this far. Then again, it was inevitable. To anyone reading this, thanks... You inspire me.
