Two page comic preview: In Softness

I have started a short 12 page comic(manga in Japanese) story.  I have most of it inked and it's just a matter of getting it toned now.  Two pages are done, and I thought I'd give you lovies a little preview of it.  Since I seem to be failing at getting any publisher to even consider me or respond in that matter, I'll be self-publishing when this story is all finished. Yay!

Here's page one, the cover.... two....

The story is about a young woman trying to cope with the loss of a loved one and cherishing some fond memories.  Sounds a wee depressing, but I hope to make an emotional impact with this. Love to hear your thoughts on this. ^_^

If anyone is at all interested in seeing a small tutorial on how to use traditional screen tones(which are like a grey scale sticker similar to zip tones of olde), I will gladly put one up. *wink*

I've been really pushing at this publishing thing, I've been out of work for almost five months now, I used to arrange flowers...which offered me a perfect opportunity to get really creative with improving my art skills...but man, this marketing stuff and pushing to publishers is no easy matter like I thought. Ha!  

Again, I want to thank all of you for your wonderful comments here...they really mean the world to me. ^_^

Happy week all!
