Flash-comic work in progress sneak peak

I just wanted to give you guys a little snippet of the project I've been working on! It doesn't have a name yet, but it will be a flash comic that tells the story of a little girl who is engaged in the art of Gyotaku (Japanese 魚拓, from gyo "fish" + taku "rubbing") is the traditional method of Japanese fish printing, dating from the mid-1800s. The short story is a metaphor for people who commonly experience "Artists block" or a block in productivity of any kind and a statement on maintaining positivity, humility and awareness in the face of what we perceive to be failure.
I have MUCH more work to do on this thing before it is done (cleanup, line art, coloring, compilation) but here's to steady progress. :]
With Love,
Silent Shout

Ha ha, sorry it's  taking so long to get to it >w<
I actually started on it right before I started my flash comic project I'm working on now and wasn't happy with how it was looking, I decided I'll give it another go right before I start the coloring process on this project I'm working on, I want to kind of experiment around with some different brushes X3
Right now I'm about midway through the rough draft, then comes clean-up, line art and then coloring, and I'll squeeze yours in before that ^^
Also, are you cool with me doing something different with the lineart if i decide to? maybe make it a different color or brush style?

Haha, that's crazy man! XD
He's a little guy I made back in 9th grade, I used to try to hide him in all my pictures like a little wheres waldo, but now he's been reduced to a logo >w<;
I've always loved birds, grew a certain fondness for crows back in high school, they're so smart! :]
The hat just makes him snazzy, lol
