I'm not sure how the geography works in this place . The sun is visible in the background rising west- over the same hills which the moon rose over at the end of the previous scene (southeast) . Weird.

In April 2018 I will be reaching a few milestones on my comic.
I have passed the 100 page mark, Beneath The Clouds has been running for a year (five chapters) and I'll be roughly a third of the way through my first story arc. And of course I've been accepted by Spiderforest (woo!)
In order to develop as an artist, finish my submission for the Spiderforest Rogue anthology, draw fan art for other comics, start an online course in sequential art, and avoid drawing kimono for a couple of weeks, I'm taking a month's hiatus during April.
I'd like to see if anyone would be interested in drawing fan art to feature during this time.
I would need eight pictures in order to continue updating for a month. In exchange, I will feature your characters in Chapter 6.
-You can draw anything- comics, pin ups, black and white, colour, but it must have characters or situations or something from Beneath The Clouds in it. A picture of your characters reading a BTC comic, for example, is fine.
-Nothing too graphic. Read my comic if you aren't sure of the level I'm working at.
-I'll start work on the city scenes mid February , so I'll need to know if you're interested by then, but I won't need your artwork until March 30th.
- My comic is set in a semi-realistic version of Heian Japan, so I will put your characters in period-appropriate clothes and they must be able to pass as human. If you would like to draw me fan art and your comic is about giant robots punching each other, that is absolutely OK! But they will appear in my comic as human versions of themselves. Maybe they can fight with naginatas, or perhaps shoot each other with arrows!
Contact me on caroline(at)carolineparkinson.co.uk if you are interested. Even one person replying would give me a little bit more free time during April.
