Ruri's Scrap Haven

Where are my updates??

final batch totallizing 24 pages?? o_O

This was very fun to make, even if the drawings are incredibly sloppy, to the point I feel slightly embarrassed looking at them again. Sorry, if I had decided on doing it properly (like the other stuff I am curretly doing) it’d have simply taken forever.

On the positive side, sketching a story like this is really fun. When the focus is on writing the story itself, it flows much easier and it feels awesome to conclude what we had in mind, even if it’s not to a polished result. I’m certainly doing these scribblomics again and will definitely think of redrawing them properly again someday.

On the story itself… I must say I’m enjoying how it’s developing. I’ve had Masa’s character pretty defined for a looooooooooong time, but not his friends, and I love Mitsu’s development. Developing a blind character is already interesting as it is, but I’m really excited at how the characters have been evolving and rewriting the story I had previously in mind 10 times deeper.

I’ll probably tease Masa’s backstory a little more. It has been a real blast developing their friendship. It’s just too bad that their story is a sad story though…

Now on to resume the other projects!! \o/

i can’t draw send help

I’m a bit late this time. Didn’t see this until today, and ya say the art block has been overcame xD But in case it presents itself again, here’s a thing I found for writers (and I believe it’s useful for comic artist too, the thing that says “draw” should simply say “experiment with different media”):

Hope it comes in handy.

Those are some nice pieces of advice! Thanks ^^ I’ll keep them in mind~

Art block overcome!! \o/ Thanks everyone~

On another note, I made a twitter these days to stalk Nuri-san am I creepy yet not sry and decided to put my account to use. My twitter will be my process blog, in which I’ll talk about my stuff in progress -  which is everything HAHAH.

And that’s exactly the issue. Stuff in progress is spoilery, so if you care about knowing things before time, stay away from it. Stay awayyyy.

But if you don’t, feel welcome to accompany me as I overcome my greatest fears step by step in this epic journey of turning a dream into reality…!!! *insert epic music of choice… or not*

Many thanks for JD and Maq for supporting my stuff Q^Q Even if I have much to learn, every little word of critique and advice is so incredibly encouraging! So thanks guys! Again, haha :D

I’ll probably be sketching the continuation of that dialogue, even if it holds little to no value to the main plot. :P

Blind guy is very observant, much Masa’s chagrin.

And no, the answer isn’t: “I go out slaughtering people during new moon nights” like the people who follow my stuff would expect. This is from when he was still alive and didn’t had the atitute “What do I care I’m dead anyway”

This is my little semi-April’s fool thing, since this is not supposed to be my second comic in any sort. Just something I felt like barfing sketching around. I wanted to develop Masa’s bg a bit more and talk a little about blindness…

Yeah, it’s easier for me to show these story flashes of the ghosts than the main cast… Everything about the main characters feels so horribly spoilery 8(

supermacaquecool said: Oh. Well done, Ruri! The second one needs more contrast…I think XD

I see your point, but I blame the scanner lol! It ate my mid tones on the second drawing T_T It’s quite dirty already, so I won’t touch it anymore.

Hehe thanks ^^ I always read your comments and they always make me smile : ) You’re awesome.

… I’d say you’re super, but most likely I’d be the only one finding it funny.

 Thankkkssss
