A few years ago, at a comic convention, a man commented on the lack of architecture, detailed backgrounds, and establishing shots in my then-comic, Ball & Chain. It was a very valid criticism, until he said: “oh, women just have a harder time with that stuff”. As a result, I made it my life’s mission to prove that bro wrong.

Additionally, this was my first time drawing a detailed house with the help of references and while trying my best to respect the rules of perspective. I modelled it after the older county houses I used to see while driving to one of my former workplaces (with an added touch of cutesy tackiness). I HATED that drive!

Just found this comic, your artstyle is gorgeous *_* especially this page~which is why I came back here to say that~

Also, what women have trouble with is sexist assholes, not backgrounds.

What a ray of sunshine he was! Lol, sounds like a real prick. Good on you for going the distance to prove him wrong! I’m really liking the misty, isolated feeling these establishing shots have. Makes it feel like this house may be one of the few left on earth. And the fields look so serene, it almost looks normal...until you see the tricloptic cat. What a cute kitty! Anyway, it’s really nice to see another artist doing great work using traditional media! I’m looking forward to seeing more! Keep proving that dudebro wrong. :3

@Lutztoons: I'm so glad this page conveys a sense of isolation (and serenity); it's totally what I was going for!

Thanks a bunch for your kind comment and for checking out my work. :)

Awh, this is cute like it came out of a Nintendo farming game! <3

And yeah, I got that "women have a harder time with backgrounds" spiel from multiple people including my parents and I hate that. I know that people saying it usually don't even see it as sexist but it bloody well is.

@Oly-RRR: I like the farming game comparison; I love that kind of cutesy aesthetic. :)

Oof, I don't even think the original comment was intended to be mean! It sounded so matter-of-fact that it just increased my frustration.
