Jeez Deven, who does that?
I am pleased to say that I actually got this page done comfortably before posting. I think I'm getting much faster at flatting. It wasn't a particularly slow step before, but it's much more efficient now, and it makes the shading and lighting more efficient too (foreground and background have separate flats now!).
I am also changing around my desk and stuff to see if I can get some proper ergonomics happening, and hopefully that will diminish this awful pain I get while I'm working on the comic. There are pages in the archive that I have inked 10 minutes at a time, due to the need to get up and walk around and stretch out my shoulder (interestingly, it's the left shoulder, and I am right handed). I am having a flare-up as we speak, and it's been brutal. I need my sister-in-law to come fix my shoulder, but she's on the other side of the continent. :c
In happier news, I just ordered two 26 ounce jars of Nutella from Amazon in order to avoid going to the grocery store. California is spoiling me.
