Break Your Chains

c06-p46 Break Your Chains

Hey! So I’ve decided to finish Paranormal Petunia in private. I’m doing this for a variety of reasons. Some of which include negative comments I’ve received online and the speed in which I am able to pump out pages online. I’m actually hoping I’ll be able to finish the final graphic novel a LOT sooner by doing it this way. I think the final product will be a lot better too. I’d much rather write/outline/draw full chapters at once rather than publish single pages at a time.

I’ve thought a lot about this decision. I’m sorry if it comes as a disappointment to the few loyal readers I do have! Please know that I appreciate your readership! I hope you’ll check back with me on social media or on my main website (chriscollinscreative.com) in order to get the full graphic novel when it’s done!

Wish me luck! I’m off to start sketching out the rest of the story!

MeCAF was great last weekend! Thank you to all the people who stopped by my table to read and buy some comics. I was very surprised with how well the show went. I’m looking forward to doing more shows like that in the future!

A Familiar Voice

Hey! Thanks for being patient with this update. The weekly posting schedule feels really good so far. This page was fun and effortless to draw, which is unusual because I was feeling so rushed and overworked before. I think this schedule will work much better. I hope you don’t mind.

Also, I started experimenting with watercolor paints! Can you notice? I used to use Prismacolor art markers for the kind of “wash” feel in my comics, but they are expensive and not super flexible. The watercolor washes are super fun to do. I like it a lot. I need to learn more about watercolor technique, but for now it works well as a simple grayscale wash.

Have a great weekend!

Hey, I don’t know if any of you followed my other comic, Nonsense Thoughts, but I have decided to retire that comic. Instead of NT I will be posting a lot of new comics in that style on social media. I had been doing Nonsense Thoughts for eight years and want a change. Here’s the latest comic if you’re interested! 😀

Just Kidding

Nobody has noticed the little Easter Egg that I mentioned! It has something to do with the last page and this page. I don’t want to give it away. If you’re interested, you may have to look back in the chapter a bit to figure it out. It’s nothing you need to notice, so maybe I should just shut my trap and let it be.

Let Go

I have to remember to do more background/establishing shots. Otherwise I’ll just keep drawing closeups of peoples faces and hands. I can’t help myself.

You Can’t Do That

c05-p64 You Can't Do That

I know I’ve been talking for the past couple pages about how I have been working hard to get these pages done so there won’t be any interruptions during my move. Well, I have! Unfortunately, I had a bit of a family emergency for a couple days, which may mean that this Saturday’s page will be delayed. I’m going to try to do it though! Don’t give up hope!
