RAIN ch.1 - The New Girl by JocelynSamara RAIN ch.1 - The New Girl by JocelynSamara

Yeah, I guess this is cheating; my first chapter page instead of something actually going on. But I think itís a good way to close this week. Youíve seen the prologue and caught a brief glimpse of a present day situation where things seem a bit... different. Now I finally announce the first chapter, and weíre ready to get this started for real next week!

By the way, speaking of next week; Monday, December 6th will begin my regular schedule of new posts every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. I know you'd probably like me to continue this one a day sctick I've been doing until now, but I'll never be able to keep up at that rate. At least this way, I have time to work on successive pages.

Look forward to it! I know I am! ^_^

Thanks! After what, eight years now of saying I wanted to do a webcomic, I'm finally doing it ^^;

I'm going to keep posting it here either way, but I'd like to get my own site eventually. Someday, when I have a little money to throw around, I'll hire someone to do one up for me.

No. There's a hidden message hidden in my words.

Find it... and achieve the secret of eternally being hidden!

Definitely look forward to the new pics.

And again I love the use of color as to give a bit of hope for Rain as she starts her new life. The blue fading to pink being the most significant as she begins her journey to girlhood. And I love the confusion from the rest of the main cast as they notice the new girl at school. Color, interaction, and body language all symbolize where Rain is now in her life and you are smart to depict all that in one image.

I'm okay with the 3 out of seven schedule, for a webcomic you do need time to replenish material for ideas, story, and just all the little things theat physically make a comic. So at least I know you are already a good way ahead of us rather than making it up as you go and going on hiatus for artists block. I done this before and it turned out horribly.

The background colors are particularly significant, and you might notice I use them a lot (just look at the stamp - [link]). The pattern of "blue, pink, white, pink, blue" are actually the colors of the transgender pride flag (which I myself, only learned existed last month - [link]).

Yeah, I have 30+ more pages fully drawn and ready to post currently. As long as I can produce a minimum of 3 pages a week, I really don't have to worry about ever really falling behind (which was my goal all along and why I didn't simply post page 1 on the day I finished it). If at all possible, I'd much rather never have any delayed posts for this comic. We'll see, but that's definitely what I'm aiming for.

Well don't worry, I doubt you will fall behind. In the years you planned to tell Rain's story I'm sure you have built up enough ideas to show the world.

I remember that flag now, didn't think it was for the T community. Kind of reminds me of vanilla ice now. But the point is now understood and now I'm amazed of it passing my notice. Either way, you continue to show your great detail.

I hope so. Even now despite how well it's doing in such a short time, I'm still nervous for some reason. But I think you're right. This is going to work out. ^_^

I could be wrong here, but isn't it the initial reaction that sets the tone for the fan base? The way I see it now, you are out of the worry woods.

Is that where you find the problem-eating bears?

Heh. Yes, the problem-eating bears are indigenous to the worry woods. They'll take care of all those stress-inducing salmon, deadline-demanding deer, catastrophe-causing caribou for you given the chance. ^_^

Although it really is way too epic. This was my imaginary opening theme back when I was working on the original fantasy version.

If only they'd do acoustic version, I could still feel good about using it. ^_^

Yeah, the skirts are a little poofy. It's technically not intentional, but I don't seem to be going out of my way to "de-poof" them either, so apparently, I'm not all that opposed to it either. ^^;

Thank you, though! I'm glad you like it! ^_^

lol you seem to be actively having no stance on the issue of whether or not her skirt is too poofy XD I'd love to meet you irl
