SMOCT3 Round 1 part 1!
Oh good lord this took longer than it should've. I started out dealing with "i can't draw right now"itis which kind of impeded on everything. Then I started approaching the comic a bit differently. Instead of seeing it as panels on a comic page, I began to think of it more as screencaps from an anime, but with word bubbles. Made everything so much easier.
I started out just drawing backgrounds and then frames separately but the problem was, I got this ugly white border around the figure. So I decided to combine them, flattening the images to make frames. The later frames are all drawn out by hand, poorly. Rulers and I still don't talk.
Last time I had a lot of trouble with the timing. dA liked to dick around with my framerate and when you're trying to read, that's a pain in the ass. So I made a next button. Problem solved.
Marin was really fun to write. She seems to have an obsession with Facebook so I just had to include that. She's also described as curvy, so I gave her more of a curvy figure than Sam.
Full background from the first scene. Admire my one full background scene!
