Lotus Emblem Page Six by SecretWalrus Lotus Emblem Page Six by SecretWalrus
Rowen prepares herself for the journey.
Just in case it's not clear in panel 4, those are incense cones. They play a part later in the story.

EDIT: Weird Hamlin arm-shapes-thing has been replaced with his face, which is much more readable.

Nice rope! ;)  Glad to see an update again! :)  I love how expressive your character's body language is. :P

If you're open to suggestion, the bottom two panels are a little confusing with the father's arms on each side of those two panels.  It's creating a shape that's a little distracting to my eye.  It might flow a little better if we could see more or less of him in one or the other panel.  Or, if it's not too light-hearted, have a single bottom panel with Rowen traversing it with dotted lines marking her path?

On to the next!  :)

Wow, you already updated it!  Much better I think - I'm impressed how fast you updated it! :D

I've done quite a few little all-digital fixes for the pages so far, but this was a good test to see how much I could do in Photoshop alone. It was a fast fix, but I think if I did entire pages this way it would start to show too much.

It's quite excellent - I think it looks great!  Do you normally draw traditionally and then color digitally?

Up until the comic I would draw traditionally straight through, then color digitally. But for this comic, I've actually been doing digital roughs so I can change the layouts on the fly and save myself from the curse of wanting to save my lines because I made them in pencil. It allows so much room for experimentation and that's unbelievably helpful. I print the roughs out onto 11x17 paper, and use a light table to clean up over them on comic book layout paper, then scan them again for digital paint. It slows me down to clean up in pencil, but I prefer the line quality I can get out of it. But, then again, that's why I did that test. I may move to all digital in the future, but for right now I'll probably keep doing pencil cleanup. Besides, it's nice to have something tangible while I'm working on the comic... the weight of my finished pages folder is reassuring as it gets heavier. :D

Wow - sounds like a pretty intense process!  I do like the flexibility of digital, too.  I'm more willing to post something that's a bit rough because I find it easier to take suggested changes with digital.  I know what you mean about having physical copies - there's something special about being able to hold your work in your hands. :)

I kinda wondered about those panels when I drew them. Shame on me. I have a plan to update it to make more sense though , I think having most of his head in frame would help sell the idea that he's standing there, rather than floating arms.

I agree, I think that would help a lot!  Loving it so far! :)
