Aphasia Chapter Six: Fugue

Clay: Pages 81-85, 90-93

Carrie: Pages 86-89, 94-97

Bahn: Pages 98-102

I can’t remember the reason Bahn did a part but it was a good idea — his pages are amazing.

The fugue dream was difficult to do. I did it all on paper, with only the lettering done on computer. It didn’t work out as well as I hoped, but it was a little experimental. My own style was changing here too, as I was getting away from the big anime eyes that were awkwardly part of my style until this point. I was also getting better with coloring on computer and this was still all done with a mouse, I hadn’t bought a tablet until a year later.  One of the things I like about Carrie’s part is that it’s humorous despite what the gruesome scene that Carrie drew with these two characters later. It also has the only appearance of super-deformed versions of the characters.

    I didn't know the mute played the violin. At least it makes for another attractive cover picture. I like the texture pattern on her dress. The concept of a fugue dream was interesting and well-done with each successive dream sequence building on and adding more details to the previous panel.

      I don't know if she could play the violin per se, I was running out of ideas for chapter pages. Thanks for the comments about the fugue dream. I can't remember how I did it, I think I just drew the fourth page, and copied it, blacked out Kate, copied that, blacked out Victor, copied that, blacked out the Mute and left with only Victor on the last page.
