Temple of the Morning Wood (April Update)
It's getting pretty gay, and it will be getting gayer.
The design for every centaur in this comic was settled on in the same panel they appeared, by the way. I had a general idea of how they should look and behave, but no real details worked out. That's obviously risky (since I will be stuck with them even if I grow to dislike them) but I don't seem to get inspired to think up characters unless it's in the middle of things. Another downside is I have to keep looking up their first appearances as reference until I remember them well enough, and they end up off-model until I've figured out what the model actually is. Cassandra is a good example of this, if one compares the first time we see her face to every time thereafter. Don't look now, but I'm blushing.
Anyway, this number of pages in a month I am happy with, and hopefully I can keep it up in the future. For the last few pages I switched sketch method to a much rougher one (bigger brush, less detail in general) and it seemed a bit faster. Inking is more fun too, since I'm not just tracing the sketch but actually drawing creatively in order to fill out the details.
