Bea Cries, Color by comic-chic Bea Cries, Color by comic-chic
So I did this sketch [link] over a year ago when I was writing scenes which eventually became Issue #4 of The Dreamer. I've wanted to color it ever since.

Well, here it is, with the drawing tweaked, and nice purdy colors. Don't cry, Bea! Alan's here!

I just love this image. I'm very attached to these characters and can't wait to see where you take them. Will you ever offer print copies of this comic? Much love and I look forward to future issues.

Next month you can go to your comic shop and order issue #1. It'll be published by IDW Publishing. Issue #1 will go on sale in November!! We're doing a six issue run, with a collected trade (graphic novel) out next summer. ^__^

I've been following The Dreamer for months and this, along with the wide piece beneath it on the actual comic page, is my favourite moment. The whole scene is brilliant.

Why not? Oh, and I tweaked the drawing a bit, too. I think it looks much better now. That's what happens when you stare at an image for a year! :XD: (I have it on the wall above my desk...)

I saw this drawing before I saw the comic page, and I was like, I'm gonna cry! It looks so sad!

Now I just read the comic page and I'm already almost crying.

Amazing work. I love Alan. I need a guy like him. And Bea is such a strong character. I want to know what happens NOW!

Please keep up the great work, and if I have the money I will most definitely be buying the print versions!

Well... the comics will probably cost as much as a frappuccino. Or.. one gallon of gas. So not *that* much to shell out. :XD:

There are a lot of great things about this picture but I can never get over how great you draw hair. I would kill to draw hair like you, or have hair like Bea's!

Mine was a lot more muted, but Mike wanted me to change it. I did cause he's usually right. The colors did get a lot more saturated here on DA though...

YAY! BEA DOESN'T CRY PRETTY!
Sorry. ^^; My drama teacher pointed out how there is a dramatic differnce in the way actors will cry. There is crying pretty- which is where a single tear comes and their face doesn't change. Or there's REAL crying where people's mouth makes funny shapes and their face gets all red and yuck.
I'm not saying her face is "yuck" XD But I love how you gave her very intense emotion, and Alan looks so concerned!
Fave!

He is so adorably wonderful with his little scruffy face. *pinches his cheek* Nah, he'd probably be irritated at that.
