Anyone would feel socially awkward trying to ask questions to a face like that!

As you can see with my backgrounds, I've recently become re inspired by Kaoru Mori's Emma. I think my background art is improving though, I'm learning to make more use of lighting/selectiveness and less use of screentone.

Thanks so much for your comments guys! :)

@Abrahamian Thankyou for your comments! :) I remember you on DD, you were on DD, right?? And depedning on your personal taste, I would treat the anime and manga version of Emma differently! I adore the comic to pieces, but I personally think the anime is really bad. Its full of the anime character and story stereotypes that a seasoned anime watcher like myself has seen a thousand times XD The original comic on the other hand, is very unique and beautifully paced, and the artist/writer captures English culture perfectly, its very historically accurate and well researched, which is why I like it (and her other comic 'A Brides Story' which is set in early C20th Middle East/Southern Russia).
And yeah, me no likey backgrounds :(

@Falconer XD You hit the nail on the head, I was even considering using those very words!! But I wanted to keep it more realistic, so I went with something a bit more subtle (really wanted to go down the dramatic route hehe)

@Lyco Thank you! :D And congrats on your Manga Jiman entry btw! I must of been offline on the weekend the ceremony happened, because I have no idea what place each winner came in at. Gonna go see all the entries in London next month though <3

That is the face that is only going to say it's none of his business. :|

...or if he's feeling adventurous: "Why do you want to know? YOU GOING TO MURDER THEM TOO?" Either way, not going to be a friendly or helpful response I suspect lol

Gah, poor Hemu U_U

I'm loving these latest pages, and I can't get over your lovely skill with using lots of different linewidths!

loool such a mean face! Loving this update!
I like how you use your screentone,you use it when needed so there isnt too much! I especially like the one you used in the second panel of this page,compliments your backgrounds :3
I've totally given up on screentone! I hate using it personally, and with all the blacks I use now I feel that it would make my artwork look too busy.
