Happy Belated Birthday to George Harrison (it was the 25th)! Rest in peace. (Uh, those of you who have been around know this comic's title was inspired by George Harrison's Dark Horse, but those who are newer may not.

Aaaaaaanyway, I wanted to spend a couple hours just divorcing from reality and finding pleasure in the decadence of heavy inking. And boy, did this use a lot of ink. This was colored traditionally, although I did have to make her dress pink digitally since the marker didn't pick up. It looks a better in real life than on the computer. I need to figure out how to take pictures properly of traditional art D:

Whelp, that's all folks for this act! We made it to the end! I cut it off a little early, because I realize I have a tendency to ramble, and I'm ready to go back to the future/present XD

I shall be taking a brief break, but next week you can expect an updating timeline (maybe I'll play with the scroll aspect), and then I'm going to make a few web shorts while I re-read my notes/scripts and work on the thumbnails for the next act (which uh...I don't even remember the name of it D:).

Hope to see you there, and I hope the break isn't too long. I think I'll probably take the month of March to work on it...so...that seems like a reasonable break :3

It's a Q & A! Enjoy the rambling and the coloring :D

First rule: Focus on the objective and do not try to check what and how changed. Too much anyway. You may not like it. At all. But I guess they are plenty aware of how bad it could potentially look...

One could drive themself mad chasing possibilities :3

How does age pass when you travel in time? I can't imagine you never age, even if you're in the past. There is still gravitational pull to consider...and presumably even if you go into the past, if you're able to do it and maintain your body (that is, you don't automatically start reverse aging...youthing?), your body is still experiencing, well, the passage of time. Every cell in your body is still being bombarded with gamma rays. Aging is inevitable...So would traveling time just be something you could do until your body succumbs to natural causes?

If one started down the path of finding the right timeline, how many times could you get it wrong before you give up? And what would you lose? How much is one willing to gamble? What toll would so many failures wreak upon one's psyche?

So many questions...no answers ;) (of course, then there's the question, if you've removed yourself from this plane of existence, say in the case of Shimiko...do those gamma rays affect her? If you're in a space removed from the rays of the sun...What would an intra-dimentational pocket be like?




It's interesting to think about...

True but I mean more personal stuff. However, it does not matter where they are going since almost everything is probably effed up anyway.
I meant things like that park turned into a waste dump in the meantime and that cool dude across the street is now a drug lord.
The exact opposite can happen as well though!
