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.

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
