September smells of hops.

The smell of the freshly harvested, drying hops mixes with the chilly morning fog, it mixes with the low angled sunshine in the evening, it mixes with the sound of falling pears in the night...

Hops in September, I like that smell.


No, please. I like the smell of September.


That's also my year round approach. :)

I feel that an important difference between NaNoMangO and 4thQuarterComics is that the 30 pages style NaNoMangO doesn't aim for finished pages or thought through scenario's. It's more like how sketching relates to making a finished drawing.

It's a very different kind of "fun through making comics". :)

Félicitations! :) C'est une belle émission.

My site at yncke.be now has an feed for the updates of the comics! Yay!
(And also: about time. :/)

: I've expanded the comic generator for (gitlab.com/Yncke/jekyll-webcom) for this. The feed itself is generated by jekyll-feed. Because of github.com/jekyll/jekyll-feed/ it can't be used to make a combined feed of news posts and updates, though. :(

This may not be the most credible page of the story, but even though I'm not following the pacing of the , I am following the "go with the first idea I get for the next page" principle of the thing.

Besides. I really enjoyed drawing this sequence. *grin*

Page 60 of this episode. I guess it's a good thing I didn't continue this as a regular .
I probably could have wrapped it up towards an intermediate end here, but I doubt I'd then have enough story left for another 30 pages.

I'm not sure how to put the side texts in the telepathic messages into the image description. I hope this approach works.

So maybe you dream-designed a dry version of this?

I just finished reading the "The Night Belongs to Us" by @tnbtu and I really enjoyed it. The artwork conveys emotions really well. The pacing of the world building, action and character building is well matched.

And it has an RSS feed for updates! :)

I once went to a signing session by Lewis Trondheim, a very successful French comic artist. I asked him what he thought were the secrets of a good scenario. He said there were plenty, but he highlighted these:

- "Il faut s'amuser" : You have to have fun. That way, even if nobody else likes what you do, at least you had fun with it.

I make the thumbnails for my comics as quickly drawn rectangles on paper. They're very rough, so I'm not sure if there would be value in doing it digitally.
