Shimiko's getting a little sassy XD I wanted Yulie to have a little bit of fun. So far, we haven't gotten to see much of his actual personality...he's just been hell bent on stopping Kei. But he's trying to relax a little and have fun with his role as the group orator XD

Also...you may notice something different about Shimiko in the last panel :D

I am thumnailing Act 6 of the revamp/redraw, and I'm adding a page which better introduces her...and to do some foreshadowing, I made her look a little different, so we have a better clue that she's hiding her true looks :3

Anyway, I will probably let you all know when I get to uploading that act here (but, you don't need to read it to know what's going on: I'm just improving pages and making the story make more sense).

ALSO ALSO: This page is bigger than the previous ones. That is because I've been resizing with the revamp to 900 x whatever I never pay attention from 800 x whatever I never pay attention, but it's smaller than the previous whatever.

I am also, per Kyo's suggestion in a thread I was asking a question in, starting to upload pages here directly, instead of linking from my personal Wordpress libraries. I wanted to save Internet space, but I guess my files are negligible in size, and for technical reasons my pea brain can't or won't comprehend, it's better to just upload them here.

So I am :D

AAAAAAALLLLLLLSSSSSSOOOOO (gah, I'm so sorry for so much info dump everyone):

I'm working on uploading the new pages of Act 5 (The New Deal) which I just got done on Monday/Tuesday. I wanted to make sure my Patrons got to enjoy them first, before uploading them here :D It's not mandatory, again, to read them since ya'll already have, but if you feel like checking them out, here's a short cut.

This week's video is long. I would have rather made a shorter video...but even in nearly 40 minutes, I don't think I was able to cover my complete thoughts on receiving and giving critiques. I just wanted to do this video for a while now. So there's that. I don't think I'm as eloquent as I'd like to have been either...I guess it is what it is.

Magic text comparable to my handwriting but does it mean anything or it is made up? :o
I always default to some magically adjusted Arabic script because that is what these remind me of in like 90% cases but is it? Or Indic symbols.

Hee hee, it's made up, but it is inspired by Sanskrit and Hindi (oof, I realize the two may not mix, but I'm a silly outsider and a dreamer XD).

Way back in High School, when I was a waitress at a joint named after a Beatles' album (I literally set my eyes on this place because it was Beatles themed), my boss was from...well he told the public he was from Saudi Arabia, but he from Palestine :3 His wife (who was hilarious and one of my favorite people ever) was actually from Jordan...I think.

But anyway, I got kinda close the family, and they would invite me to stay late after the sunset and the restaurant closed to have dinner with them for Ramadan :3 Eventually I asked my boss if he would show me what my name looked like in his native language, and I think it was beautiful! (This writing, just FYI, is not my name, just an FYI.)

Soooo, the reason why I bring this up is because when I created that writing, I actually had my name in mind a little bit XD I wanted it to look like a combination of both :3

My boss was the coolest. He used to tell me about his "wild days" in the 1960s when he first moved to the US XD He was a funny dude. I really miss them, and hope they're doing okay through this pandemic :*(

That was a long story. But I kinda find influence everywhere XD XD I guess we all do :>

It should be possible to create your own font for it but since you made it up probably by hand then I guess that is always faster.
I assume it still follows English grammar and everything?

XD It is not an actual made up language (I'm no Tolkien here XD) They are literally just pretty scribbles made to look like Sanskrit & Arabic :3

Alas! I tried a long, long time ago to create a language for some other project...and gave up pretty darn quick XD I have a deep appreciation for language, but cannot create it :3 (Much like music. I wish I could play an instrument!)
