Author commentary

Veronica: This comic is meant to be a much-needed explanation on Lucy’s fear.. it’s been mentioned on occasion, but obviously some problems have an origin.. so yeah. ANOTHER ONE OF THESE, YES.

This went through a revival.. I drew an older version of this story, but never found the time to post it up on DeviantArt (This was before the site was made).. and so much time passed that I forgot about it to the point that the comic became outdated and if I wanted to post it, I would have to draw it all over again. Well.. here it is! I’ll probably post the original comic in the future.. once I get some extras section. Filled with other goodies.

The third panel of this comic was absolute murder. You know those times you’re drawing and you just CANNOT get it right.. even after much-needed erasing and redoing? Yeah.. that was a plane crash all over.. oh well. I think it’s just the hair looking so FLAT. Also I should practice at more adult, elderly faces.. more wrinkly. This keeps reminding me of the artist for Pokemon Adventures.. except his old characters don’t look as bloody weird. They look quite “chibi”.. but tastefully so. It’s weird!

I’m getting progressively better at Tess. I was looking at old comics and noticed how much of an ABOMINATION she looked.. she’s improving.. as are everyone else. Paulo looks great on the last panel.

Only to go!

The P.E. teacher is so laid back unless she needs to get something done to keep her job. I like that in a teacher. ^_^

There’s something odd with this page’s connection to the forum. It’s being labelled “Confrontation, page 1”

You said in this page’s commentaries that you’d post the old version of this story in the extra section of the site. It’s not there, is it? Can you still do it?

Great design for the teacher. He looks like one of the fellow High-Schoolers…lol.

“You tried to drown Lucy?!” Jesus, everyone’s jumping to conclusions. Though, to be fair, I wouldn’t be surprised if Lucy has tried to drown MIKE before…:O

because you seem really into torturing mike for no reason.

…I wonder why Tess is uncomfortable around the water? My best guess is that she’s ashamed to be seen in a swimsuit…
