I absolutely love that dress on Rachel. It’s definitely interesting to see, Rachel, of all people, acting completely shy. It’s certainly a side of her that we haven’t really seen.

Paulo is slowly growing in the last three panels
Or he’s like levitating and floating away like
“Awkward awkward awkward”

Rachel has such a cute dress on *^*

The first panel actually almost works, but no one seems to notice how much closer Rachel is to the lockers. It’s not just the difference between her and Paulo’s heads, their feet have a difference as well. Given that, they’re roughly at the head height difference they’re supposed to be. It’s just hard to see at first.

did my comment get deleted?
I didn’t put anything offensive, I merely stated that the juxtaposition between how childlike the characters look and the maturity of a lot of the situations they are in (discussing sex and the loss of virginity, depression, alcohol, etc) makes me uncomfortable.

ramona August 25, 2014, 2:03 PM America/New_York.

Comment ID #285685

Things must be getting so awkward between them… :( Between everyone. And it’s almost as if they’re trying to forget about Lucy. I’m pretty sure Paulo still REALLY loves Lucy, which is making it hard for everyone, including Jazz and Rachel. Everyone’s shipping all sorts of people with Paulo when we all know Paulo still likes Lucy, who is GONE right now. XD It’s like saying, “Hey, I’m waiting for her! Mad Lucy ” But then he also wants to be loving girls right now…. It must be getting hard for him to wait up.
But I know Paulo. :D
I think maybe he just MIGHT win Lucy eventually, if Lucy isn’t still all “heart-hurt” from Mike. Rachel REALLY likes Paulo and is there for him, and Jazz was really nice while she lasted. Their relationship was nice while it lasted. And I guess Rachel also worries about what’s going on between Tess and Paulo. :(
Right now I think Rachel is winning. XD
She’s just :P while all of the other girls are so… distant.

Yeah, I’m just not in the mood to read that stuff right now. I feel like I’m aware of the issues and the comments I’m reading aren’t saying anything I’m not aware of. Sorry.

I don’t want to be a monster, but I notice that negative comments tend to breed more negative comments and it often helps make the comment section more pleasant to remove key controversial statements that end up driving a “yes, I agree”, “no, stop reading the comic then” mess. My thoughts on being anti-critique are evolving with time and I think there are lots of practical issues worth thinking about that I never really considered before. I still feel icky, though, and I’m sorry if I deleted a comment you felt you put a lot of effort into writing.

Btw, thought your comment was reasonable, ramona, but then I noticed you posted immediately afterwards under a different name with the same type of post. Looked like a sockpuppet account.

Anyway, yeah. If you’ve got something pretty negative to say, it might not remain on this page. I think if you really want to affect the progression of the comic, you should send me an email about your concerns and make it convincing!

I don’t do sockpuppet accounts but I do share an internet connection with roomates who also read the comic, could that be why?
I understand - I don’t complain to be awful, i love the comic and I love Taeshi - I’m just finding it hard to read at the moment. The art isn’t bad at all, I just think the characters look too young to be dealing with the issues they’re discussing.

:< if you’ve been reading the comic (or gone back and read all of it) for a long time it shouldn’t matter what the characters look like now, because you should already have a grasp on how they are… if you haven’t read it all, you should probably go back and do that before you go crazy on the comments. Just saying.

@ramona Well, I understand that many cannot reconcile the themes of the comic with a style that embraces more childlike proportions. Unfortunately, this is the direction we have chosen for the comic. Like several things that many readers feel strongly about — ******, Lucy, clothing — it’s not a criticism that is new to us, and it’s one that we’ve chosen to disregard.

So there’s not a lot of value to posting more about it in generalised “I don’t like it” terms. The best you could do if you feel passionately enough to not let go of this idea is to email me about it and we can talk in more detail than is possible here.

I’m usually very picky about art styles, but I make sure to make an exception for Taeshi. XD It’ll take some getting used to, but I’ve stuck with the comic through many style changes, and still will for any future changes. ;) Besides, there is no way I can possibly post something negative about it when Rachel looks THAT ADORABLE :love:

Comment ID #285699

Maybe not much! I don’t think there’s much to say that I haven’t already heard, when it comes to the idea that it’s difficult to read a comic where the characters have larger heads. But if you have a convincing argument, I think it better to have it in a place we can talk freely without risk of constant derails. I already feel bad that so many comments on this page are not about this page, and I feel I should stop now. I really do invite emails from you or others if you have more to say about the comic generally.

Awwwww cute Rachel in a dress! She’s adorable! I can imagine Rachel wanting to ask paulo out to a school dance. But this seems a bit out of place for Rachel being nervous. However Rachel dose have a thing for paulo so it must be special wich is why shes being all cute and awkward. Wonder whats going to happen. Maby paulo will have a total recall of his feelings for Rachel. :x

I’m guessing this is supposed to be a flashback chapter due to the name of the chapter being “Total Recall”, or maybe Rachel’s dress makes me think she is younger than she is supposed to be in this chapter.

In any case, this is sure going to get interesting.

I just have to say, i really respect suitcase. And i think hes awesome. And ive read the diary comics and he seems to be really nice too. I dont know if taeshi has the problems she had anymore, but suitcase seems to be the perfect person to make her feel better and stuff.
often when i see negative comments, i kinda think that maybe taeshi would feel bad reading those comments and that doesnt feel good. So im happy to know suitcase is there to take care of the negative comments and being awesome.
i dont know, i just had to write it. Maybe some things in this text dont seem accurate or whatever, but still. Its just my thoughts

can i just say i love the character development rachel has gone under over time? just… WOW i know ive talked about this before and this is only the first page of a new chapter but ive really just gotta say it

at first she just seemed like some slutty character whos one and only objective in life was to be mean to tess but over time shes turned into a cute, loving girl who’ll over emotional support to paulo, slowly forgive tess, loves children and just so happens to enjoy having sex on the side. shes such a kind girl as opposed to how she seemed during the first few chapters of her existence

out of all the characters in this comic i dont think a single one of them has grown as much as rachel has

nice job tae. people could learn from you when creating characters and developing them

I think the big issue with the first panel is that the lockers are a bit too tall. In the final panels they’re back to normal height, but in the first shot you can’t even see the top vents that they have.

The colors and lines get better with every update though. Excited to see how this new style develops.

Just pointing out the locker placement and head placement of the characters are off. Easy mistake that probably got overlooked entirely. Just thought I would point it out so that perhaps in the future it could be avoides since it makes the characters look like toddlers instead of high school students.

Lol the song that i have on when i came to this site is : avril Lavine’s “things i’ll never say” Matches perfectly. “I’m tugging at my hair, i’m pulling at my cloths, I’m trying to keep my cool, i know it shows. I’m stairing at my feet, my cheeks are turning red, i’m searching for the words inside my head. I’m feeling nervouse, trying to be so perfect, because i know your worth it, your worth it. If i Could say what i wanna say, i’d say i wanna blow you away, be with you every night, am i sqeezing you to tight? If i say what i wanna see you go down on one knee. Marry me today, am i wishing my life away? These things i’ll never say” Play that song and view this page. Now its time for me to have a fan moment :love: O MY GOD SHE LOOKS SO FREAKING CUTE :) This is hands down my favorite shipping. I’m so ruiting for her. Please Taeshi don’t let me down lol no preshure. Also i adore this color style and the shading. I have alot to look foward to this chapeter, even if theres some drama getting him to commit. Heck i don’t care. Bag him Racheal, you have america on your side!!!! :)

Comment ID #285766

While Paulo is definitely not my favorite character, the chapters based around him are interesting to say the least and are always (mostly anyway) full of much needed character development.

For this page though, I have to say something that has already been mentioned, but the locker’s size to Paulo and Rachel’s size make them look like kindergartners.

Also, is the overarching focus on Paulo to prevent us form knowing what the others are thinking and how Mike might be coping with the face that he was a main, but not only reason, for Lucy leaving? Or is it just because Mike and Paulo and Lucy and Rachel have swapped places as main female and male protagonists (respectively) and you guys (Taeshi and Suit Case) have not told us?

Either way, this makes changes. With Paulo taking the role as the main protagonist will Mike and Lucy’s drama get swept to the sidelines?

Or are you guys making these chapters to hint at and to create the causes for a large effect about Mike and Lucy’s drama? Or are they just to expand on Paulo’s character and his relationships with his many (ex, sorta, and kind of,) girlfriends?

Or are you guys just trolling us, by using Paulo and his issues as a distraction while you guys work on the resolution of Mike and Lucy’s drama fuster cluck? XD

Either way I look forward to it and I think you guys have, and still continue, to do an amazing job on this webcomic.

Hmmm… I’ve been reading this comic for a long time now, the art has always improved with time.

The colors look bright and cheerful. But…

I’m not sure how I feel about this new SD version of the characters…. The story is still great. but I wish we can get the taller character models again.

Paolo August 26, 2014, 2:21 AM America/New_York.

Comment ID #285773

@HelTH maybe because the end of her existence in the story was terrible? Because even the authors refuse to clearly tell what happened to her and the story seems to go on aimlessly with very little other problems to solve? I mean, if there wasnt that hospital scene then her leaving would be just fine but they had to show that something happened even worse to her health but wont tell more about it. I kind of lost the sight of what the story is even aiming for now aside of that teenage kids … do things.

If that day ever happens that Lucy actually returns then i hope that instead of being little inossent and kind hearted new Lucy gall, she’ll embrace her Tsundere bitchie side more than ever before without leting anyone make her feel hurt about being herself ever again…. cept towards Paulo maybe.

The way i see Rachel dressed, shell probably ask him for a date and they will just have a cute scene together. I hope there will be some really unexpected moments between them. Still , i dont mind all these Paulo chapters at all, hes sofar the most interesting character at the moment anyway because he got actual goals set up which can effect also the group 8-)

Wait…so is this a flash back chapter or are the characters just becoming more and more child-like as time goes on?

Not that I mind, as it’s an artistic choice, but it’s certainly interesting nonetheless.

OT: Awkwardness! Since I’m not sure if this is a flashback or not, I can’t really interpret it too well, but if it IS a flashback, then Rachel cleeeeearly had a thing for the little tom way back then.

If it’s current? Theeeen…still quite awkward. I’m actually kinda rooting for these two, different species and all.

@SuitCase and @Taeshi

I can’t believe how much these comments have gotten out of control! I feel so bad for guys. ;_; As an artist, hearing the same complaints over and over again can get agitating, especially when most of them are things you’ve told viewers are not mistakes. I personally really adore how the characters look on this page. They’re so cute, and chibi-cartoon-y! :love: Whatever new technique you’re doing Taeshi, it’s working.

I think that the problem is that the readers don’t quite grasp your guys’ definition of “cartoon-like proportions”. They’re not meant to be realistically proportioned, that’s why they’re cartoons. I was thinking that maybe describing to the readers what your take on cartoon style is in the FAQ or something may help clear up some of the complaints. :D It was just an idea I thought I’d toss out there.

Keep up the great work you two!

Comment ID #285785

@AngryBunny Honestly, I believe that there are lingering inconsistencies and we are still working on figuring out the exact size of these characters. They need to be practiced, but I’m not sure if anyone realised but Vero has had no time for practice as the buffer has been at 0-3 pages ever since the new style began. (The comic might update like clockwork, but that’s because there’s two people scrambling behind the scenes, often up to the last minute.)

This current chapter takes a few shortcuts (namely, no copic markers) to get the production time down, which should hopefully lead to the possibility of more time to nail down the proportions. It won’t be perfect until then, and we’ll just have to weather the comments. But I hope anyone who sees what I write understands this and can be understanding of what causes some of the fluctuation — the comic pages themselves are where Vero has had to experiment, which is a tradeoff we made to ensure the comic never missed an update.

Separate to inconsistency of sizing, I know a lot of people are simply more OK with the old style than we are. We think the old proportions look bizarre, now! But we also think the art style of a bunch of things readers like is pretty icky, so it’s just a difference of taste. Unfortunately that’s not something that’s gonna change, and we’ll work on making BCB as nice-looking as we can.

I’m actually really liking the new style. It seems to fit the comic well, and the characters seem less “furry” like and more Taeshi-like. I especially like this page; Rachael is super cute! I wish Taeshi the best of luck in finding something that she’s comfortable with.

… at first I was quite surprised by the change. But now I feel like you are finally figuring out what you want your art to look like. I am still going through this and playing with my style and such, and it goes through awkward stages! Anyone go through the HUGE BREASTS stage? … some people never leave that stage. Anyway.

I think they look pretty good! Sure some things will take time to line up.. but otherwise the colors are soft and lovely, the characters have great emotional faces still and OMG SO ADORABLE!!! How can so much drama come from such adorable things?

Honestly I prefer the old style just because it was more anatomically correct. Then again I’ve never been a huge fun of chibis. Still this style is super cute! And I will continue to read this comic no matter what style you draw it in.

Honestly I can totally dig this art style because It’s like watercolor painting.

Again I think this art style is slightly too light hearted and dare I say, somewhat funny as seen with the disproportionate heads. I think this would be great for a funnier chapter such as ‘Textual Harassment’ however were it used for a more dramatic chapter, the light almost pastel colours might not convey the heavier mood. However I would still love to see a darker chapter with this art style. It would be interesting to see how you would accomplish this. :D

I reread some of the older chapters, like Happy Hour, and though the old proportions seemed weird at first, it wasn’t hard to get used to them again. Same would go with switching over to these new ones. The problem, why most people don’t like these new drawings, is, as you said, that the proportions are not set in stone yet: they fluctuate a bit.

I hope Veronica, with the time that she has, will be able to make this new style as good as it can be. I know she has it in her.

Second time reading through the comic and my heart still drops when I catch up to the last chapter. I WANT MY DRAMA CATS AND I WANT EM NOW!
