ORIGINAL NEWS ENTRY:
Good day everyone. I'm feeling rather exhausted at the moment because I just finished up my ninth page in a row. I needed to create ten to twelve pages before I leave for vacation on Thursday morning, so I've been working hard to meet my deadline. I just need about two more pages and I'll be ready to go to China without any regrets! The ten to twelve comics will cover for the four weeks I'm going to be gone from ROL ^_^
Anyway, today we have the (still) nameless stranger talking about how his 'mommy' is biased against him. Apparently this 'mommy' being loves Haruko as her favorite son or something. Thus, the nameless character comes to the following solution: Kill the favorite 'son' and 'mommy' will be sure to love him. Slightly flawed, but sometimes when you become obsessive – you come to some odd conclusions? Next, Shino and Torio returns because Keiko is apparently sleeping somewhere. So now we have four of the five main characters in the scene. And the page ends there, more or less.
I felt a little rusty drawing Shino and Torio there. I haven't had many chances to draw their full bodies in a long while so I actually had to look up my old sketches to see how their outfits were designed. I noticed, however, that Shino's costume is terribly simple. I mean, it's not very...interesting I guess. I might go and redo his outfit when I get back from vacation ^_^ That is...if I remember >_<
