- *As you can see this one is mostly the same as the old one but I changed Sydney's dialogue in that one frame where he looks like he enjoys money a little more than someone should enjoy money. The old one is actually really funny to me because I have NO idea why 2011 me considered $20 parking to be expensive (Granted I knew even less about driving then than I do now, which is still not a lot, but seriously??). I got to experience some of Sydney's ludicrous parking fees myself when I had to visit the US consulate to get a visa for my vist back in 2015.
The second point about the housing prices is based on the fact that apparently, the median house price in Sydney has now reached 1 million. The skyrocketing cost of living in Sydney in recent years has been a major topic for a while now and is regarded as a massive problem, so Sydney might not be keeping his popularity for too much longer. Or his alleged 'liveability'.

Anyway about the art itself - I thought I had the issue from the last page figured out, but I actually hadn't, and it required another whole week of battling with Clip Studio. The good news is that I kind of got it, the bad news is it still isn't 100% how I want it (I dont like the checkerboard moire pattern that appears on some of the tones and the dots still look kinda big to me) but the lineart has now survived the export intact.

Next up is Mellykins, due for July 20th which I will be uploading from the comfort of my house back in Australia as I'm visiting for two weeks. I am looking forward to escaping the horrific summer in Kyushu and cuddling my cats. Unlike Syd's only being a touchup Mel's intros will be almost a complete rehaul (he had the worst ones in the original in my opinion), so look forward to that!

Ah I'm so glad that the Clip Studio has been cooperating more!

I think $20 for parking is expensive lol but my frame of reference is (a) US $ and I don't know how different AUD purchasing power is and (b) college days, when $20 was about a week's worth of groceries.

I saw a list of "most livable cities worldwide" last week and Melbourne was #5 and Sydney was #7 and I just started laughing imagining how Syd would react to it in light of the previous page.
