Ok, so....I actually changed a lot of things with this page, but I am not really sure it shows or not. As I've said in the past, I am sort of transitioning Verboten, and I am planning on rolling things out differently for next year, so I am using these final few pages of chapter -4 to kind of work out some kinks and experiment around with some different things.

For one, I used a different size paper for this, and in the end, I don't think I like how it ended up because part of the page ended up getting cut off. I'll probably stick with the old size (I was using a sort of standard Manga size before, but I tried a larger "american" comics dimension for this page). I'm using that for another project, but I don't think I'll stick with it for future Verboten stuff.

Second, I got Manga Studio a month or two ago, and I've been kind of screwing around with that. Although the toning didn't at all come out how I wanted it to for this page, if I mess around some more I think it can look pretty nice. I kind of figured things out by the end I guess, so I'll be able to change things as I go into future pages.

I also used the stock word balloons available in Manga studio, and decided I didn't really like it so much, so I'll probably stick to my old method of just drawing the balloons in the page. Which I like better anyway, since I've always been of the mind that the word balloons and text should be a "part" of the page, incorporated into the visuals. Here, I think they just look obviously pasted on.

Oh well. Live and learn. I'll figure things out by messing with Manga studio a little more. I mostly just wanted it proper toning anyway, so that's what I'll focus on, I suppose.

Finally, there is still a lot of good stuff in the works going into next year. I've been putting more work into the next actual chapter, but I also have something special planned between chapter -4 and chapter 0, which I will detail more soon.
