Haha its fun drawing grumpy faces.
For this comic I've approached scenery in a different way to what I've done before.
So much more then being experimental with panelling, I've been experimenting with how to use the surrounding areas as 'props' and symbolism, like a play!
For the police station, I went and took photos of the real place first. Then I drew and planned out my own simplified/altered version.
After this I looked at what I've planned, and only then look at what could be used for the characters or what angles should be chosen.
It was pretty great to have a wall at the Police Station, its now become a really nice prop for emphasizing how separate the characters are in culture/ideas, and then goes on to be used to show what brings them together ^^ /ramble

Thanks so much for your comments guys! ^_^

Aut Mercurial, thank you! I do sacrifice a few things for drawing quickly, which I'm not proud of ^^; I need to learn to take my time a bit, so I can stop making stupid mistakes! And I'm still catching up on your webcomic btw, I'm enjoying it very much, but havent comment since I havent caught up yet 0_o

Istoria, thank you so much!! ^__^

Mimi, I know sad folk tale! :S Haha yeah its a really obvious metaphor XD I want all the stories at the beginning to link somehow to the main story!

Haha, grumpy faces are the best! Hemu looks so cute there.

Go, symbolism, go! Everything can do with a little bit of symbolism.

I know the feeling, haha I still tend to make stupid mistakes even though I draw slower than a snail climbing Everest. Ah, you're reading it?! Uhhhh, how embarrassing, it's such a clumsy comic...I'm glad you seem to like it though >/////< It never occurred to me that you'd read it actually!

I like that new train of thinking for the backgrounds. Interesting.. like a play. Very Baroque!
