So I just noticed that I completely eliminated noses from my drawings. No kidding. I did not notice it as I was drawing it. I did not notice it as i was coloring or even putting all the finishing touches on. No, I noticed after looking through the MacHall archives for a specific comic and I took a quick peek back at ApL to see if there were any new comments. I did a double-take. "What the hell? Why aren't there any noses? I don't remember there not being any noses..." (pretend that i actually said that). It was at this point that I realized that they look fine WITHOUT noses. Does anyone else find that odd? That you can draw a recognizable human face with a prominent feature completely omitted and it still looks natural?
I think I'm just gonna stop drawing noses altogether, see how that goes down.
Anyway, I thought I'd share what today's comic looked like before all that fancy inking and background work.
This is what I had originally planned it to look like, but factors such as background source forced me to remove that tree in the final panel. I thought it added a nice transition, but I just couldn't include it. Oh, and I labeled what people were feeling/doing in the panels too, as a bit of a reference for myself. Adds a more comic-y feel to it, no?
