Default Convalesca (One Shot)

I present Convalesca: One Last Time, a 12 page one shot originally drawn for a uni project and later submitted, with dialogue added, to the M.I.C.C. competition.

I didn't place in the competition so I finally get to show you the comic I realised I much preferred the more poignant silent comic to the one with dialogue so I'm showing you this instead. It's based on the building I currently study illustration in, which is a wonderful, mysterious old place I wanted to bring the place to life with a tale of a lost spirit, finding peace within it's walls. It used to be a convalescent hospital during the war, so that's where my inspiration mainly came from

Hope you all enjoy it, I'm really proud of this one, even month's after doing it

(Eep, I'll upload the last two pages in the next post ...)

Oh, Lyco - it's beautiful. You're right to be proud!
I LOVE the eye on page 1, and the building on the last page is fantastic. Crazy fun with floors!

That's really lovely - and works so well without dialogue, I don't actually know what would go in. Congratulations, it's fantastic

How moving! Great work, I see a serious leap between pieces from you if I may compare your past work with your present. Winner or not, you should rightly be happy with your work!

Oh my, thank you all so much ///U_U///

Destraudo: I thought that expression looked so out of place when I first drew it

Emma: That eye is my favourite panel of the whole comic But the floors, they killed my eyesight! >.< hahaha.

Sun Kitten: Yeah, I think I made a big mistake in adding dialogue before submitting it to MICC. It's designed to work without it, so adding dialogue took something away somehow. Thank you though, I'm so glad people understand it without the need for words

Toffeeliz: Thank you so much, I certainly will try again!

Karasu no Kazu: Gosh thank you!

Laura: Most people seem to say that about my work It's odd; I think I learn a lesson, take a big step, then learn another lesson, take another big step, and that's why my work kinda jumps in improvement rather than gradually improving haha And thank you, to be honest I was DISAPPOINT for a few seconds before shrugging it off and remembering I don't need to win, as long as I've learned something or improved.

Mimi: Indeed I do! Thank you so much.


I am so glad you all liked it.
