City of Cards C3.11: HERE!

First off, thanks for the well wishes. You guys are always awesome.

And guess what, not only is there new comic, I have some stuff to share here as well! First, here's another panel from the three page side comic I'm working on that takes place after the events of Chapter Two and before the second half of Chapter Three:

Really, the benefit of this side story is that I can spend all the time I need to experiment with on backgrounds and details. As I go back and work on the main story this is what I want to have more of.

Next, I was playing around and finished this picture of Ace:

This was pretty fun and didn't take too long so I might go ahead and do a set with the other characters. I've also learned I really like flat colours.

I'm also still coming to terms with the influence that manga has had on my art. If you've ever heard the strong reactions people have to anything remotely manga styled you'd understand why I've spent so long trying to distance myself from that style, only to realize that my strongest influences and favorite comic works are still manga. That's because if you've ever read the works of Junji Ito, Katsuhiro Otomo, and Osama Tezuka you'd realize that good comics are good comics no matter where they came from.
