So I went with...option C for the intro. It continues with some more intro-ish dialogue, and then the next page really starts off with character movement and the main story.

But here, have a WIP of page 3 from a while ago. I've started the inking process (after drawing a crap ton of pine trees which are probably all going to get covered up by dialogue anyway ha), so I'm actually a lot farther along on this page than it looks. I'm stuck on page 4 for the moment as I try to figure out what poses and scenes I want in the panels...


WIP of one of the next pages I have planned out for my Auran comic. This page is mainly just to show off the size differences between Auran and his teacher, Conozco. Auran and Conozco are both spirit sanctuaries, meaning that those markings on their sides are a sign that they are the host for some spiritual force. Conozco is the host for a three-headed water dragon spirit (haven’t decided on a name for him yet). Auran is host to the dragon spirit of darkness, Xia (but doesn’t know it at the time of this page).

Okay you know what I'm just gonna go with the "upload a page whenever I can" deal, as irritating as it might be to you readers out there. I do have a couple more pages in the WIP stage, although I haven't really been working on them recently. I'm doing the best I can with taking pictures and editing the brightness/contrast until it looks decent, so hopefully the art and words are distracting enough from any seemingly wonky lines or lurking dark shadows in the corners.

And besides, this is basically the second half of the intro to the first chapter, so it can stand alone for a little while as I get other pages ready. My way of shading Auran's scales makes him look very rough and spiky, like a pangolin.

Pen Challenge + New Game Idea by Skyleap
Pen Challenge + New Game Idea
*sounds of laughter*
no really I don't know how stuff like Auran happens 90% of the time I am completely incapable of drawing anything better than that picture of Lucifer at the bottom of the page (okay, that might be a slight exaggeration, but same principle)

I was tagged by drosera-sundews (seriously people deviantart's code is weird as crap how do I get avatars and stuff to appear?) for this, with the following rules:

1: take a pen or marker
2: Start drawing and don't stop untill you're done, no corrections! 
3: tag friends in the drawing (show us your handwriting!)

Most of my thoughts are written on the thing, but anyway. Have a vaguely not-completely-crappy-looking lion and a ridiculously absurd Lucifer.

Since I think most of the people I want to tag have already been tagged for the Pen Challenge, I propose a new game called "Embarrass Your OCs"

Rules!
1. Pick your favorite OC to throw under the bus.
2. Draw a ridiculously shitty picture of them. Laugh evilly at their pain.
3. Tag people. Do the handwriting thing. Write.

My tagged people:
drosera-sundews
Mistovermoon
Reithya
Alkasay

So I've been trying to figure out how to start this thing, and don't really like the thumbnail layouts I've done so far. They start with a boring zoom in on Auran looking at a book (about how to connect with your inner spirit), and then his teacher character is introduced (Conozco).

My other idea is to start with Conozco narrating a bit as he writes a letter to Auran in his diary, and then it does a time skip backwards. Rough draft of the letter would look something like this:
I pray that this letter reaches your soul, since you will never actually read it. They are still looking for you, you know. Every day your pursuers are flying farther and faster. Please remember my last words to you Auran. Wherever you are.

Maybe the letter will be a little longer, I'm not sure. This sequence will end with a little bit of spoken dialogue from Conozco (shh it's a secret), and then go back like a week or two or something to the class Conozco is trying to teach in my practice pages. It just felt awkward starting directly with that part when I was practicing, so I wanted a bit of a lead-in to it.

Thoughts?
