Fake it till you make it

Found Pocky rip off today. And I thought the worst thing that could happen the pocky religion was changing the name to ridiculous "Mikado" in Sweden.
But these were awful. Don't be fooled!!

Off topic: Blog recommendation of the week: Other Dutch Animals

My creative hose mates have started a blog about life in London, or more specifically about wearable fashion, making tomato ketchup on a weekend and why we should not take Mad men too seriously. Also featuring photos from our house, the garden and general cool stuff:


And what a blog it is! I wish mine looked like that! When I grow up I'm gonna make a blog that's also a homepage that's also a spaceship. One day.

The best thing about london is...

...going to Japan centre to buy take out sushi and have a picnic in Trafalgar square. Japan centre is the most amazing shop, a bright star of hope and happiness for the western world. You can find anything from freshly baked melon pan to tempura and all kinds of onigiri! I know, I didn't believe it myself, so I produced photo proof:

Last chapter preview!

So it's drawing close to the final hours of the last chapter of book 2! (Sorry, it's past my brains bedtime so English is going to be extremely basic) None the less only 12 pages to go and then we are... finished!!!

Mind you though before my deadline there is loads of other yummy things to deal with besides just the petty detail of finishing all the comic pages. Am i talking a lot about my deadline by the way? Am I? Like one of those super annoying friends just talking about about their partners? "We want to do this for holliday..." "We don't like fish" "Me and my deadline don't have time for drinks today" etc. Uh, sidetrack.
Anyways, extra work besides finishing drawing include but are not limited to:

*finishing cover, such as the backside (what am i going to have on the back? What!!? Ahh!!) and changing colors of cover.
*all the chapter intro pages
*texting and finishing up 25 inked pages in(/on?) computer
*screentoning about 40 pages
*intro for book
*extramaterial for book such as maybe a short comic I so far have no ideas or script for
*going over all the pages and fixing insignificant mistakes no one will notice

But more on the cheery side, some photos from todays page from last chapter - sorry about the bad quality photos:

But no one ever get the gender of my characters right unless they are super stereotypical! ;_; . Mostly I get that my boys are girls (cause i like them with long hair :3) but also confusion about the girls as well if they have short hair or whatnot.
For example above pages feature random aggressive biker-chick-punk-girl (love drawing her!) but everyone amuses she's boy... -_-;
Doesn't anyone see the boobs? boobies anyone?

Finally rough idea sketch to give myself a feel for her character:
