As promised, I took December off to revise the comic and fix some things. As a result, you’ll find a new Opening Number that looks more consistent with the rest of the comic. In addition, I worked on some disparate revisions. On January 1st, I began drawing this scene. It took me 2 months and a little more, but I hope it was worth the wait.
In this scene Gregory and his new friends decide the way forward is to open their own gallery. As he starts to immerse himself in the creative process, having cast off the yoke of his dependence on Nicholas, Gregory is starting to open up and allow himself to rely on the friendship and support of other people.
This scene comes to you a little behind schedule, for which I apologize. It had so much going on! Lots of characters, lots of black spaces and cross hatching, plus the detailed cityscapes. The opening shot of Portland took me two days alone to draw. Not to mention the length of 33 pages! I worked really hard on it and I hope you enjoy it.
If you do like it, please consider becoming a patron. Your donations help keep the lights on at Reclinerland HQ, and I would really appreciate your help in getting Success! off the ground. Some of my goals are:
A print version of the comic (with CD!)
A high-quality recording of the music and the voices, with real voice actors in the various roles.
If you think these are noble goals, please head over to the donations page and contribute whatever you can. I’m off to work on Act 2, Scene 2 now.
Okay, that’s all for now. See you in April!
