Hah, keep telling yourself that...

Erm so! I opened a thread up the other day asking for help with background characters, because I am a twit and decided to include many scenes with a lot of them. So, if anyone would be interested in designing a character for this comic, I would really appreciate it! The thread can be found [here] with more information, along with what I'll give in return 0w0.

Yo! I am excited to help design a background character, so hold on for a while while I draw :'3

Also as your critique buddy, I shall put a critique hat on.

I think the backgrounds are the best part on this page, and the expressions are very nice! But the problem is that day/night colors are basically the same. Without the day and night panel, I couldn't tell if it changes. You can solve this by adding darker shadows, using blu-ish tones, or even a blue overlay :'D

Yay! Thank you so much! :D

And thanks for the feedback too! I definitely agree about the colours. I do use overlays, but maybe I'm a bit cautious with it. Next time I do a night scene I'll use your advice and maybe try out more different layer types 0w0

*rubs hands together* ALL RIGHT HERE WE GOOOOOOO!

I love that first panel. I really do. It feels like I'm looking down at part of the town from the top of a really tall hill and it looks great. Plus, misty moon~

The second panel... Well, the sunrise looks nice, but the boats are making me blink. Just kinda... where they are in relation to the horizon, I think? I don't know. Something's a little off though. But the SAILS, oh man, the sails are perfect and I love them to bits. :]

Seriously loving the pink in Nate's hair on this page. It looks great and really establishes the feel of dawn.

SPEAKING OF NATE. NATE. YOU ARE MY FAVORITE. I LOVE YOU AND YOUR DUMB EARRING AND BAGGY EYES. :D

Nate trying to talk himself into doing things sounds an awful lot like me trying to talk myself into doing things.

Clearly, I am Nate.

XD Jokes aside, Nate, you can totally do this. Trust me. I'm a reader. I know how stories work. You've got this.

Also, birdies~ Love the little chicks in particular. :]

Yay thanks! >w< Yeah, the boats are something I remember struggling with a lot, and it never really got any easier. I'm deinitely going to need to look up more references and practice perspective some more for next time I draw boats. And even... later scenes. Involving boats.

An aaaaaaa yay! All that just makes me so happy ;w; and the BIRDS. Thank you! I had fun with them, all of them are actually based on real gamebird hybrids for funs. Usually half chicken half pheasant or peacock 0w0

Sometimes the hardest person to convince is yourself, Nate.

Very true. Still, I guess time will tell!
