At this point, it seemed like Ramona would get a little more spotlight. More, already, that what I had anticipated when first creating the character. But there are still a bit more chapters to go before she becomes an important cast member!
Looking at these strips above, I realize I still had a bit more to learn when it comes to shadows! Though I like where I was going with that second panel Ramona there (first strip), but the shadows could be better. They're important to get right! It's thanks to shadows that a drawing or painting can feel more voluminous, in the right places, and so, more alive. Though you don't always need shadows to make something have volume, of course. With enough practice, any lines can speak volume (woah, that's a good one!) :D
Before I leave you to your well-deserved weekend, (unless you're working on that weekend, in which case, good luck and much strength to you!) I'll add my own thumbs up for Lillian who really surpasses all expectations. Looking at her now, I feel like she couldn't have been ALL introvert to be able to adapt to these situations so quickly.
She's the character who's been changing the fastest in these early chapters, the others will do so as well, but in their own time :)
--> This is a rerun of the finished webcomic Go Get a Roomie! You can find these two strips in the old archive >here<!
