The four travelers walked up to the great gate of Emerald City and rang the bell.  After ringing several times, it was opened by the same Guardian of the Gates they had met before.
"What! are you back again?" he asked, in surprise.
And we’re back! I just finished the first half of my webcomic Vattu and I’m taking a break on updating that for a month; one of the (several) things I’ll be working on in that time is the Wizard of Oz project! Halfway done; expect more soon.
I skipped ahead for this one because I wanted to draw more Emerald City stuff (previously). This is Chapter 15, when Dorothy and friends return to the City from Winkie-land.
Got some fun ones coming up.

excited to be working on this thing again! It’s the biggest ‘side project’ I’ve done so naturally I underestimated how hard it would be to keep going at a consistent speed

DONE

Started out with my normal multiply-layer-over-flats tactic, and tweaked it a bit to make the grass and water kind of glowy. The layers of distance separated in the previous post were used to create atmospheric perspective: each one has a successively more opaque layer over it set to hard light.

I’m happy with this thing! It’ll be a print at some point, and I’m putting in the order for a convention banner today, so I should have it in time for SPX!

Ok I went through and updated the colors for every single page of Vattu, and re-uploaded them to the site. Site colors for book 1 now match colors in the print edition, and some contrast issues throughout book 2 have been fixed. A lot of stuff that isn’t noticeable, but is much more readable now!

Did you know book 2 is finished? Did you know I’m about halfway through the biggest thing I have ever made and you can read it for free right here? Now u know

Vattu page 572

The second book of Vattu is DONE with page 572!!! By my current estimate, there will be four books in total, so we’re around halfway done right now. This thing is huge and it boggles my mind to think too hard about. Thank you SO MUCH for reading.

A few things are happening…

halfway done with a comic that will take me 8 years to make apparently

i think it’s good

thesixofspades asked:

Have you ever thought of bringing Rice Boy or Overside in general to the realm of animation? I've always wanted to see a Rice Boy animated movie!

I would have no way to do this and i got into comics at first because it was a way for me to make my own thing and do it alone and relatively efficiently. Adaptation would be fun if that were to happen, but the likelihood of me being involved in any but a token position is small so I’m not gonna get too excited about the possibility

anyway if you want to option any of my comics for film get at me

Book 2 of Vattu ends tomorrow. Book 3 starts in around a month.

These are updated images for the site. The Book 3 image is sort of a spoilerless stopgap; still thinking about what to make it look like without giving too much away. It took me a while into book 2 to figure out what its title would be, but I think I already have a pretty tight hold on what 3 is thematically about, so that is the title almost 100% for sure.
