- Meet Ria. She likes flowers, apparently. ...she is also the first female in Senka. The kuurenzi in chapter 1 doesn't count, as those are sexless.

Yesterday, I inked page 14 of this chapter. ...this is significant, as it was the last of the pages I pencilled in... April? May? A long time ago. I've learned a lot about comicking since then, and pages 15+ should be way, way better. Heck, page 14 is probably the worst comic page I've ever made. I am looking forward to pages 15+ a lot! There might be a slight style change, but I think it'll be for the better.
Now I just need to gather up the energy actually pencil pages 15+. I've been so into working on my other comic recently that working on Senka again seems like this weird, alien concept. I hope I can overcome that.

The vote incentive is a comparison of Shiun's face from page 16 of chapter 1 as it changed between drafts (thumb, pencils, inks). I've gotten more consistent since then.

Other comic news: I am hoping to start it no later than mid-February, but hopefully much sooner than that. I wish I had worked up a buffer like this for Senka, haha. Live and learn.

...Obligatory reminder about my Formspring and that there are still books for sale.

Replies - Kohikki: I can't wait to get the next few pages over with ;_; Really unhappy with the art on them (but the dialogue is fun).
If I could, I'd letter the whole comic by hand, but sadly my hand-lettering only looks good in the styles I used on the black pages. I haven't developed a good-looking dialogue style yet, but I'm working on it. The lettering is the only thing that's not traditional about Senka, so I'd love to change that.

zorrin: Thanks~ Blurry-hatchy eyes are fun, I hope I get to do more ;D Sharp outlines are overrated. But fff, that crooked nose ;_;

Qwchestr: Thank you! Senka was originally meant to be quite decompressed and way, way slower than it is now (think early Blame!), but when I decided to do it as a webcomic, I sped it up. It's still quite slow compared to most comics, but I like 'em slow and relaxed.

rainysidewalks: I just realized that this chapter introduces three new characters. There's another coming up. Whoa. I don't think this record will be beaten (minor/one-shot characters don't count).

Vote for Senka on TWC

Whoooa, we're finally out of the black pages!
And we see pretty art again!
(Although those were pretty in their own way too)
I can't wait for the next page!

I really enjoy this comic. It has a very laid back and relaxing type of pacing to it that is very nice. (If that made sense. Just know it's a good thing. XD;; )

The art style is very nice, the clean lines and graphic style are used so nicely! And I love the main character already.

That was a crappy comment, but I like this comic and am looking forward to updates. :) <3
