I’ve been separated from my scanner so I’m afraid you get phone camera pics this week.
Zaneta, main character from that comic I’m totally gonna make some day shut up.

I haven’t drawn a lot lately, so here’s Zaneta from my comic. (No it’s not up on the internet yet because I’m a horrible procrastinator and I’m still scripting and thumbnailing it anyway.)
Zaneta’s father is Peruvian and her mother was British. She’s been raised 100% in south-west England but is close enough bilingual as she’s been taught Spanish by her paternal grandmother. Her father is a world-famous but rarely seen paranormal investigator and Zaneta works in the paranormal studies department at a local university.
Zaneta’s full name is Zaneta Núria Montserrat. She previously didn’t have a middle name but took her sister’s first name as her middle name after she mysteriously died.
Erm, anyway, I am happy with the sketch but I don’t want to ink it because I’ve tried inking it and I just want to throw my tablet across the room. :D Yay? Although I just learned a new trick in Manga Studio about working closeup with an additional zoomed out window so I might give it another go later.
And now I’m drawing things for my comic. The plan is to have lots of happy photos of the main character and her sister from before the nasty events preceding the beginning of the story.
(You might not recognise Zaneta (right) because she gets a very different haircut before most of my other pictures of her.)
I reached over to touch her arm, but I couldn’t, “Núria, you’re not forgiving them, are you?”
“Hells no,” she said, and pumped her fist in the air, “I’m mad. Fuck those guys, seriously. If you don’t want kids, don’t have them.”
“Have you always sworn?”
“No, but I’m a ghost now, and nobody can be disapproving about me swearing, because I’m dead.”
“Touché,” I said, grinning at her. She smiled back, and we had our first real sisterly moment there in the windowsill.
My webcomic-to-be has its humorous moments.
