woo, let’s see how many things i can pull out of my old bucket of high fantasy tropes (you know, the one i compiled in middle school).
these guys do have names.  clockwise, starting under the flower:  ajuga, cyperus, wisteria, malope, and phlox.  i do so love character-/world-building, even if i never follow through on the actual comic-making part of it.  aw well, imma call it brain exercise for now.

my god, something is maybe actually happening in this.  shock!  gasp!  only if you slog through the dialogue, though.

man, i seriously just need to find the right affirmation/benediction to get my mind in the right frame to work on this, but i haven’t hit upon it yet.  sigh.  i’ve got to get it eventually.  i wonder if i change it to two posting gateways per week (instead of just friday) — if i’d be getting more done.  hm.

anyway.  more next week.

lol, awkward barftastic page.  good thing this thing was just a litmus test for rando characters in a rando world.  ( … . i am still committed to aurora, though.  i AM.)

again, a one-page week.  in my defense, i started (and finished) watching in the flesh, so that was distracting.  man, though, if i keep up with one page a week this is gonna be really damn slow going.  /8
blah blah, more next week!

… . riiiiighhhht, egyptian mythology exists, too, i always forget.  funny story:  egyptian myths were the first ones i loved, but that was way back in middle school (… . and it may or may have been started by a yu-gi-oh obsession, shusssh).  in middle school i was basically 100% oblivious about all things sex-/genitalia-/bodily functions-related, though, so i did not understand, like, 50% of the egyptian myths.  then after a few years i just … forgot all of it.  and for some reason i’ve never gotten back into it, not like i got into norse & greek mythology.

(oh man i hope you didn’t ask this a long time ago.  tumblr didn’t tell me i had a note.  i’m sorry if this is late.  DDD8)  um, right, so.  hi!  this is gonna be disappointing, but no, literally, it’s just “r” for rogers and “beta” was “b” for barnes.  i really like the greek alphabet (i blame crossword puzzles for this), so it’s kind of my fall-back for everything.

artist-emily-rose:
(again, i’m sorry if this is a belated reply!)  ahhhh … . not - uh - no, because i suck, basically.  i’ve been meaning to make prints for years and for a while i had a stunted society6 shop but that … . just felt wrong.  i’m super hands-on and i want to do everything myself — but i haven’t figured out how to do this with prints?  my own printer fails with solid black (and is also small) and kinko’s is too low-quality for my liking, but i don’t know of any other local place to do it.  i’m sorry!  moral of this story:  i need an agent to do this stuff for me. ;_;

HAH, did i say “hopefully more than two pages next week”?  actually, more like just one.  apparently my cycle of emotions goes: 1) giant rage monster, 2) total despondency, 3) all-encompassing self-doubt, 4) maybe sorta baby steps to inspiration, 5) INSPIRATIONNNN. 
I am still wavering in 4).
anyway, i will post more next week, but by this point i am past making promises of page numbers.  hearts to you all!  happy fourth of july, whether you celebrate it or not!

alright, so just two pages this week, yeah.  the entire past week and a half i’ve felt really emotionally psychotic, which made drawing hard — but i feel much better now.  (i’m choosing to blame period hormones.)
anyway, so.  more next friday!  hopefully it’ll be more than two pages. 8/
