473: Reconciled

Hey look!  Noses!  Up until now, I've always enjoyed the simplicity of not needing to draw noses, but unfortunately, that caused a problem whenever I wanted to draw someone in profile.  And I knew this comic would require me to draw in profile, so I figured it would be a good place to experiment with it.  At first I thought drawing noses looked SO WEIRD, but I quickly got used to it, and then suddenly every drawing that DIDN'T have a nose started looking weird to me after that!  Damn me and my changng brain thoughts!  I also tried out a lot of other things on this comic.  I used new shading techniques, new line thicknesses in certain places, new opacities in others.  Can you guys even tell the difference, or are all the changes too small to notice?  Either way, I'm definitely going to keep experimenting with these new techniques to see if they end up looking better.  It's going to take a lot of trial and error, so this next week or two of comics could take me longer to finish than usual.

I know I promised you guys some music recs earlier, but unfortunately that'll have to wait until next week.  Sorry to stall our rad journey into sound, but I can only manage so much on my plate each day before going banana-bonkers.  This is the end of our little story arc today, which means it's back to one-offs and music comics come Monday!  See you guys then!
