I’ve mentioned plenty of times before that drawing a story takes sooo much longer than just writing it, and that’s changed my approach to storytelling. Oftentimes, I ended up mentally developing the characters as I’m writing them, rather than having them all planned out in advance. That happened with AGLA here, who, later on, turns out to have some minor importance to the plot. He’s not completely out of character in this page, but the way I’ve written him since, he’d probably say the same things in a different way.
Also, no dialog breakout this time. All the words are on the page.
LadyHate: Does that mean you’re sending me a present too?
LadyHate: You asked if I hadn’t gotten the package “yet”!
AGLA: Well… yeah.
AGLA: I sent packages to all the Midknights.
LadyHate: That’s good. I was thinking you were maybe getting a crush on Annie.
AGLA: No, that’s not it.
AGLA: No offense Anke, I just wouldn’t want to make Silver jealous 😉
Lorelei: Silver and I aren’t together.
LadyHate: I thought I was the only one who could speak smileys!
LadyHate: How did you do that?!
AGLA: I’m cheating a bit.
AGLA: I’ll have to tell you later.
AGLA: I’m kind of under the gun right now.
AGLA: I’ve got a couple favors to ask.
I wish I could speak smileys 😀 Though I’d probably be doing it constantly, so that wouldn’t be so good!
Another great page, love the weapons!
I was surprised you didn’t actually speak smileys. I guess I always imagined you inserting random ‘XD’s into conversation.
It will probably happen one day! 😀
