I can’t believe this is up to page 7 already. Seriously. Time flies when you’re having fun.
Oh, we’re having fun, right? I know I am, anyway!
ANYwho, the first thing anyone’s going to notice about this page is all of the random uncolored students in the background. This was initially done on purpose so I could have random folks in the background without making unimportant people stand out too much. I ultimately dropped this idea when I decided to make all of the other students potentially useable characters, so this is actually the only page that does this. I meant to go back and fix the coloring, but got sidetracked with my eagerness to move on with the story beyond here.
So, I’m just gonna go with the excuse that it’s symbolic; Rain is trying to pretend they’re not there to make herself less self-conscious. So rather than seeing classmates normally, she sees these almost transparent people. “They’re not real; they can’t be. No need to be self-conscious.” But then she enters her classroom to find two classmates (and important characters as of next Monday) in color, as her mantra starts to wear off and she begins worrying just how difficult the coming year is going to be for.
That’s not bad actually, for having just made that up now. I’m kinda proud of that. Clever symbolism as an excuse for laziness - boo ya.
Rain, all characters and all other aspects of the story are copyright material belonging to me.
Oh I wash I could help you. Hold you close and tell you everythings going to be allright.
Late to the party I know, but I'm only just starting reading...
I feel that the uncoloured background students help bring more focus to the fact that Rain is lost in her own thoughts and mostly coasting along not paying much attention to the details of her surroundings.
Oh and yes, I read the commentary before posting this.
First appearance of Emily+Gavin!
I really feel like you should change the font of the text bubbles, they feel so out of place to the artstyle.
