Sooo.. the dialogue is crappy and doesn't really match the expressions of the characters, but it is a page!! Bea is one of those people who thinks it's totally alright for her to make fun of other people while they're being serious *cough*Jonas*cough*, but doesn't think it's too funny when people start doing it to her. Go figure.

Excuse the really dark coloring in general; I was trying something out and I accidently used too dark of a color. The way I've been shading this comic has annoyed me for awhile now, so I was trying to figure out a different way to go about it. I'm a far better colorist than I am an artist/writer, so doing this all in black and white is KILLING MEEEEEE.

Thank you Oranges_and_Pears, Dalek555, and Idene for the nice comments as usual : D I really appreciate it.

I'm really, really fond of the new shading. >w< It gives it a newspapery kind of feel, you know? Like you shaded it with pencils on newsprint, then smeared it to make the shading smooth.

I REALLY LIKE IT. <3 And I'm excited to see more!! :D

Yay, page~! I, too, am actually really fond of this shading. I don't think it looks too dark at all, and this from someone who's monitor appears to cast everything in shadow.

I like the expressions, too, and think this is an overall better look for the comic. So if you're happy with it, I say roll with it!

AHHH. I DIDN'T EVEN REALIZE YOU UPDATED UNTIL TODAY. :DDDD THIS MADE ME SO HAPPY.

*cough* Ehm. *takes her pinky off the shift button* xD

I agree with everyone on the shading - the new style, while definitely darker than the old one, yes, is a nice touch; I feel like it puts more color to the panel without actually putting color in. :)

Also, I found the dialogue to flow very well - not exceptional, no, but very natural (which is how it should be). I wouldn't call it crappy at all. xD

I like Bea's character so much. <3

You are amazing. :)

@sarall: Thanks!! I never thought of it that way O__o but I see what you mean... and your description sounds a lot better than me going "uh... I messed up" xDD

@Captain Ghost: Sorry to keep you waiting so long; it wasn't intentional, I swear ^__^;; (and thanks : D)

@Imi: Thank you : D I'm glad you said that about your monitor; I think mine makes things look darker than they really are, but I don't want to mess with the settings 'cause I'm scared to make it worse xD

@SuperBiasedMan: Thanks so much : D I'm glad to have you on board!

@Devi: "not exceptional", hmm? You do realize that I see that as a challenge, right? xDD And thanks; I really should have added an extra panel in the middle to make the dialogue less jumpy, but I was already too far into the drawing when I realized my mistake >__>;; I should be more careful...

If you hate doing black and white, you could do it in color....

Nice page! The darker colors make it look more intense and dramatic.

see, I can't do it in color yet, 'cause there's a point to the whole black and white thing : p but we'll get to the color eventually!
