Welcome to Mystic Allegiance! It’s a small store that sells various things that relate to spirituality, most non-Christian religions, faeries, etc. etc. They also have psychic readings and tarot card readings by their resident psychic, Julian (AKA Sara’s boyfriend).
New Patreon Video
If you haven’t donated on Patreon and enjoy this comic or Nonsense Thoughts, please consider throwing a buck or two per month my way. I always want my comics to be published for free online, but would love to pay the bills with my art someday 🙂
More on Comic Drawing…
It was fun drawing this comic even though it’s very hard for me to do establishing shots. I often wonder if I should do more of those, especially establishing shots from further away than you see here. Like, a shot of the street with lots of other people walking around. I love drawing characters and faces so much. I rarely would draw anything else as a teen. That has made it a struggle to plan out big scenes. I also have trouble with movement and body positions. I can draw them pretty well from life or looking at pictures, but I am trying to take as much out of my head as possible for this comic. I’m practicing a lot, so hopefully I will get a lot better at the things I’m not happy with.
Graphic Novels and Inspiration
I have a bunch of ideas for graphic novels I want to write/draw in the future, so I hope Petunia will help me grow into my ideal style. Big inspirations for me are Eddie Campbell (you might be able to tell), Hideki Mori, and Jeff Lemire. I also have learned a lot from Scott McCloud. My awesome brother and sister-in-law got me a couple of his books about making comics, and they are very helpful. If you have any interest in drawing comics, I would highly suggest Making Comics and Understanding Comics. I have also gotten some recommendations from other comic artist friends, but have yet to check that stuff out yet. I’ll be sure to tell you about it after I experience it.
I hope you like this page of Paranormal Petunia. I’m excited to show you what happens next. Thank you to everyone who has been reading. It means a lot!
