This page took longer to do than it should. Nothing particularly interesting happens in it but, well, I needed to draw a bicycle... from two different perspectives... and a bunch of different hand positions. These are some of archnemeses of pretty much any artist, as I'm sure y'all are aware.

To be fair, I don't struggle with drawing hands all that much. That's not to say I'm good at it, but I think I'm at least decent a sketching okay-ish hands without needing references. As for the bicycle, I actually gave up properly drawing it after three or four attempts and "cheated" by downloading a 3D model, rendering at the needed camera angles in Blender and tracing it in FireAlpaca. So much for consolidating my workflow into a single program.

I don't like doing stuff like this because I like to draw with as little help from references as possible, and tracing a 3D model is pretty much the exact opposite of that. Of course, I do believe that the end result is what matters the most, and if there are tools that'll make it easier for you to get the result you set out to achieve, by all means you should use them, because not doing so is not the best idea.

On a side note, I'd like to point out, against my own better judgement, that I set up a small unsolved mystery of sorts (it's more of a minor head-scratcher, really) in the past few pages that is yet to be noticed by anyone.

This is definitely giving me a "survival horror" feel and in a good way.
