The talent required is not present…

I’ve long thought about trying a comic page but my art skills aren’t really there (at all) and writing comics is quite different than writing books or short stories. but what the hell, I’ll try it. I might incorporate this into a Japanese art course I’m taking, the mood is perfect for the story (the method is Sumi-e, sort of a watercolor but only using grays, blacks, and whites). I did the rough thumbs in March, and will attempt some finished pencils and maybe inks here before transferring it to watercolor paper for the actual finished inks. Here are the smaller thumbs and first two full size panels in progress. I will be redoing panel one to make the figure smaller. Panel two is completely different from my original idea, but I wanted to try different perspectives.
