RAIN p.8 - The Bet by JocelynSamara RAIN p.8 - The Bet by JocelynSamara

Ooh… can it be? Development and conflict (and characters) finally coming in? Oh, delight!

Oddly, despite that, I don't feel like I have a lot to say about this one. I guess I'll just let the page do the talking for itself.

Enjoy!

Just found "OSCS Comic 4 - Arrivals, pt. 4" and noticed that Maria stole the joke from Ursula! Recurring gags are just awesome.

This is interesting. Though I should've said this before on paneled page 4 or even the Shangri-la demo. After reading the OCSC interviews I developed a grasp of the chracters. But when I saw there stories play out for the first time I have developed a new level of interest as this is legally the first time I saw them move and speak.

Maria for instance has that appeal that is very masculine as she holds herself with pride when talking to Gavin, further emphasised by her calling him "bitch" to show she took up a man's challenge. Gavin especially interesting as he is the newest character I've seen move. He has the feel of the average male student that will see anything as a reason to enjoy himself (boredom wise). But I can't seem to put my finger on it but I feel that there is so much more to him now. With him representing the straight demographic of the story, his relationship with Rain will definitely be something to test him on levels otherwise not tested without reason. He really must be a good person deep down and like everyone else he really doesn't want to cause unnecessary conflict. But either way, his bet for a date now got him involved and he can't escape now.

Looking forward to how these characters mature through the pages.

Hm. Very interesting outlook! :)

Again, because I don't want to risk dropping a spoiler, I'm going to keep my mouth shut at this time. But I can only hope you like the direction I take my characters. ^_^

It is your right to keep your mouth shut, after all you are the one documenting what happened to these people. Your interpretation will always be the most important.

And don't worry, so far you have proven these characters to be real and deserving of my respect.

I don't know that it's quite a failure yet; I mean, they noticed her, yes, but they don't suspect her of anything. Rain's just got to stay in "alert mode" until things calm done for now. ^_^

Also a fan of the one covered eye look. Big fan actually :D

I have a question, but I'm going to let this play out a bit before I ask it. If it doesn't get answered I'll let it loose, though. BEWARE!

I'm super intrigued by this question. You may ask anything you like, you know. Someone else may have the same question. Worst thing that could happen is that it's a spoiler and I refuse to answer. But I'm willing to go along with this for now. I'm bewaring.

And... I need more sleep at night too.

Panel 3 was a beast to draw. I hate drawing people sitting down; I tend to never get it right. This time it turned out okay, though.

So, actually, I'm quite glad you liked it. ^_^

Is it just me? Or do you use that "No way man, that's not a duck," line a lot? Or at least something along those lines.
Reply
:iconjocelynsamara:
JocelynSamara Featured By Owner Dec 13, 2010  Professional Writer
Because I had already used that line once before in my gallery, I REALLY hesitated to use it here. That said, I was having trouble coming up with an even better non sequitur to open with. In a way though, the last time I used it was nothing very official, whereas this is a big, important story; this time, it's for real... or something.

You probably won't hear me use it again though. I don't want it overstaying its welcome too much. ^^;

And Rain's ninja rating instantly plummets. :(

Well, nothing to do about being the new girl.

So does it mean it's entirely possible for the girl to get $5 and the guy to get $10?

...that would mean that guy could wind up with just $5 if the right conditions are met.

I am good at basic math. *shot*

:iconjocelynsamara:
JocelynSamara Featured By Owner Dec 13, 2010  Professional Writer
Presumably, I guess if the guy were to speak with her first but not get a date, he would get $5, and if the girl were to actually GET a date than she would win $10.

The part that I don't think they've worked out is, if the person who speaks to Rain first also gets a date, is that a total winning of $15, or does it stop at $10? These are important things to work out, you know.

True. Maria didn't exactly work in the possibility of getting that date in the event personally....
