RAIN ch.7 - Mixed Feelings by JocelynSamara RAIN ch.7 - Mixed Feelings by JocelynSamara

Just because I'm SUCH an awesome chick, I'm posting the chapter page tonight (two days early), so that we can legitimately jump into the action immediately on the promised date for the comic's return. It's been a long and occasionally hectic hiatus, but it looks like we're back! XD

Itís worth noting that this chapter is going to be dramatically shorter than the last one. Seriously, itís gonna go fast. If youíre rusty on things, it might not be such a bad idea to reread Chapter 6.

Itís also worth noting that I hate this chapter page very much. I had a real hard time coming up with a good look for this one, and when it reached a point where I had to just do something, I was actually pretty sick (still recovering, in fact). So rather than any original art, I found myself resorting to a montage of assorted characters as youíll see them within the chapter.

On the other hand, it does portray the chapter title pretty well. Eleven different characters with eleven different emotions (albeit some very similar) are shown here; can you guess them all? ;P

(Man, it feels great to be back at this again!)

Rain, all characters and all other aspects of the story are copyright material belonging to me.

I can admit the chapter page can be bettter, but it still leaves me thinking. Mixed feelings basically I think covers the emotional after effect of halloween. So we have most of the cast debating on what really happened (god, make it sound like a post-apocolyptic chapter). I mean the the way the circles are arranged represent relations. Maria opposite Rudy for that kiss Rudy gave Rain, Emily and Chase opposite each other for how their party went and what kind of impression it made on their party (as well as Emily wondering if Chase enjoyed rain), Robert and Drew (I think) talking about what compelled Rudy to do that, Ky and Heather who are basically confused about the whole situation in general (mostly for not knowing anything), and with Gavin and Fara at the top and bottom its a sign that they are equal in terms of confusion over what is going on despite knowing more than most. And finally you have Rain, feeling like a crater towards everyone's feelings. I'm sure you can pull this same feeling off with a group shot, but sometimes I think it will be difficult and that it ultimately turned out for the best.

This also maybe a simple chapter, but its still going to be exciting to see. Really look forward to how it turns out. and that it will be a good segway into Ch. 8. And if you are curious, my favorite chapters in order right now are 4-1-6-5-3-2-7. But in my heart they are all pieces to the overall, some might not look as pretty as the others, but they are still important for showing the audience what they are about to get into.

(as a quick note, I was going to send this a while ago, and than finally after commenting with something I'm happy to share........the power shutdown. Yeah, you can guess what happened to see such work just fall like that, so for that sorry that this response isn't as good.)

It's Drew, actually.

Although I guess his hair (and color scheme here) are pretty similar... ^^;

I think this page is a good idea. Your readers can print it out, draw lines on it, and use it as a chart for who-likes-who, who-hates-who, etc. Capitol work!
