For those who may have talked to me before chapter three was done, they may have heard me complain. "Chapter four is going to test my patience". This room is why. Being a normal teenager, she has a normal teenage room--at least to my knowledge, because me and my friends all have cluttery rooms with stuff on the wall and who knows what else. I'm making a statement about her personality with this room, really... but that said! As I was roughing out this page, and the colors, suddenly it hit me: people LOVE free advertising, right? So, let me tell you just how much this next sequence is brought to you by a whole ton of other artists. Without them, her room would be boring and lifeless and, like other rooms, avoiding decoration as much as possible. Take a look back at how utilitarian my other indoor settings have been. I love detail enough that I am intentionally VERY lazy, otherwise I'd never get my updates done! I get away with as little as I can. This room wanted posters. This room wanted glow in the dark stars. The stars were no biggy (she demanded them). The posters... the books on the floor and in the shelf that you can't actually see because it's on the other wall... the board covered in pictures... those were. So I put out an open call for art on a couple forums: Tomgeeks and Spiderforest. "Give me your art so I can stick it on my character's wall!" People came through. (Probably because they love free advertising) People told me "here's my DeviantArt page, take what you want!" And so, the following chapter (or at least, what takes places in this room) is brought to you by the following artists/comics, who gratiously let me steal their art and slap it on walls, books and otherwise, everywhere.
