(This is a rewrite of chapter 1. The original version can be read here if you're interested.)
This comic is also hosted at Without Haste.
Chapter 2 should be finished much faster than Chapter 1 was.
Drawn with Copic markers on cheap marker paper. Line-work done with Faber-Castell PITT artist pens. The markers and pens are great! I highly recommend both.
Copic markers give even fills of strong colors. The PITT pen outlines are strong enough to stop the markers from spreading, but they do smear if the marker is rubbed across them.
The cheap paper definitely impaired the markers. I couldn't fade or mix the colors much, the ink just floated on top of the paper and smeared around.
