Oh me and my color comics.

So here's the first page of a self-contained one-shot for my Chainsmoke story. It's a pretty silly idea that I've had sitting around for a while, but I thought it'd be a good one to kick things off. I'll be uploading a new page every Tuesday until this story is finished and it will be available for you to buy afterwards (with added extras that I'm not putting on the net of course so that it's actually worth buying) which is highly encouraged.

This page was my refresher on perspective --- spent a lot of time trying to get it all to mostly make sense while still making something at least somewhat visually interesting. I hope to get more creative with this stuff as the story progresses since there are a lot of things I could have done here to make it more playful than it is. But live and learn right? =p

Also, before I get into minimal descriptions for the next 24-ish pages, I want to give a thanks and shout-out to *Zorgia whose sage advice and comic experience is helping me out a LOT with this and other comic related things (not-so-subliminal message: READ WYLIMAN), and my friend ~DougDougmann is also updating Tuesdays with his comic The Life and Times of Earl Grey! So go check it out! You will not regret it! : )

Anyway, enough babbling from me. I hate long descriptions. New page coming next Tuesday and I hope you enjoy the story!

Very nice from the technical aspect. And it (very positively) makes me think of Discworld -- not in a copy-ish way, but in a tonal pleasant-ness.

Cheers, and more imprecise language!

That is actually gorgeous. Absolutely freaking gorgeous. I love the details in the buildings, the perspective is actually amazing, I love how it slightly bends.
The little people look so cute, and they are so simple. The light shining down is beautiful, everything seriously is great.
Best DD of today I think! <3
