Okay, NOW we can get to school!

Panel 6 might be a new favorite of mine. Something about Emily - the non-otaku of the group - discovering that she's really into girl love comics after picking one up on a curious whim amuses me so much. Can't help but wonder what Drew and Debbie must be thinking she's talking about.

By the way, Rain's not in yet. So if no one's talking about her haircut yet, it's because no one's seen it yet.

Oh, and hey, brief cameo from the rest of the main cast! XD

lol, chat you up later.

Have I forgotten about the one thing, or are we not meant to know about it yet? Or is she talking about knowledge of Rain's feelings or something

EDIT: Ohhhhhh, she got a shoujo-ai comic! I misinterpreted that panel at first, I thought she was thinking back to what Drew wanted her to get him :P

@Zack: She's in "Crisis Management Mode". Needs to give the gang prior warning of Rain's haircut so they don't freak out. In that frame of mind, things like not looking like you're ditching an old friend for the new ones don't really rate as priorities.

"Hey guys. Listen up. Shit happened this weekend. When Rain gets here, compliment her hairdo, don't ask how the con went, and DO NOT mention her sister AT ALL. I'll explain later when there's more time."

And I never realized I never posted the height comparison chart I made a little while back.

Oh well. I'll just drop a link like this:

But yeah, Chanel's the shortest character in the story by far. XD

Good for Emily! Rain is going to have a hard enough time without needing to explain the whole deal to her friends as well. And Rudy is prone to speaking before he thinks.

please don't read this as me being pissed off, i'm just trying to help

Please draw noses on your characters... your art looks tremendously better when you actually put noses on them. It's bad enough that they all have same-face syndrome (but you are pretty consistent with face-shape [i.e., bone structure/fat distribution]).

Your art has improved, but you never push yourself in the right direction. I'm not sure if you think this is a style thing, but no noses is /VERY/ weird, and, as a fellow artist, quite scary. At least a little line or a shadow representing a nose will suffice. It is very distracting when I read the comic and all I can do is play the "where's their noses?" game.

If their face isn't dead straight, there needs to be a visible nose, or if they're so off in the background that it doesn't necessarily matter, that's fine too. But I've been reading this comic for years and it bugs me so so so so much that you only draw noses for ~special~ strips (such as Rain's new haircut reveal) OR when it is a complete profile view. There is something we are taught in basic introductory art courses: draw the nose face according to the angle. When we turn our heads, our noses don't disappear.

Due to your anime-ish, cartoon-y style, I recommend looking at a bunch of screenshots of anime. You will see how they draw the noses in a good variety of face angles. I honestly think that will make an incredible difference in your comic, because when you DO draw noses, they're super exaggerated and half of the size of someone's face, sticking out so beyond their forehead that it's kinda unhuman.

@constructive criticism: I personally love the no noses- what bothers me is when they don't have mouths.

@lmao: i dont know what you consider "awfully worked up", but i'm just slightly irritated about this. i read various other webcomics, and ive seen their art styles change drastically... i know it's possible. hell, just look at questionablecontent. that's some HUGE improvement. ive never seen her respond to any comments like mine before.

in any case, i know she can do so much better, because if she drew every strip like she did for rain's new hair reveal, this comic would be so much better, and maybe i'd buy the physical copy. ._.

also heaven forbid someone actually go into detail about what they're giving c.c. for... if you interpret that as being worked up, i dunno what to tell you.

@Medway: Which makes me wonder how she hides her pregnancy... I hope she is not compressing her stomach as that couldn't be good for the baby and herself...

Also that reminds me of that plot point: she would get expelled if she is found pregnant before marriage and stuff right? This is a ultra conservative catholic school and all (at least in my impression)

Look at the date!

This strip takes place on 2/25/13 and was posted on 9/25/15. That's only 2 years and 7 months difference between comic time and real time. (I somehow thought the difference was far greater.)
