Karlaia must have been waiting by the flour mill for a long time. She'll be waiting forever if she waits for the guys to show up since they seem to have forgotten all about her. Somehow I don't think her patience will last much longer.
Like the mill in the last panel? I spend two hours hand drawing that. I usually work digitally, but occasionally I'll draw on paper. Every Thursday I get together with my fellow artists, draw together, and support each others efforts. This week I figured I would draw the flour mill so that I would have a nice drawing in the comic and not have to rush to get something done for the panel. The image looks a lot nicer with the penciled drawing then it would have looked if I have quickly inked it in like I usually do.
I played around with the shadows again and I think they look pretty good on this page. I'll keep experimenting and improving my art style.
