Cocos are little canine thieves known to randomly appear in these parts of the Serpamia Flare world, and usually only appear under extraordinarily bad luck or the whims of an author.

This strip has now been replaced with a redrawn strip, as a part of the Redrawing the First Chapter Campaign!

You may view the original version of the strip here!

Wow. It's hard to imagine that Cain was somehow even more of a woobie in the start of the comic.
It's adorable.

Awesome rework. Have to say i love the coloring so much. I want to go back and redo pages as well...maybe even color...sigh.

Sorry, going backwards in responding xD but thank you! I'm not as confident in my art so it's always encouraging to know that the colours are working ;v;* I've seen your comic pages - they look pretty awesome without colour already XD;

No problem. I just had a blast reading without breaks. Definitely my kinda comic. As for my comic, me and Co author are rotating doing the art. I did first episode, he is doing second and we still can't pull off colors :(.

<3 I'm so happy it's your kinda comic! :D

I checked 'round your comic and clicked on the only page I saw 'colour' in the title for (lol) and daaaang your colours are SUPER NICE bro! Though your pages look great with just tones, too. Colour does add a lot to it, though.

If you have a co-author/artist then would it be difficult to split up the colouring process between the two of you? I know that's how the Strays Online authors did it - they broke down the art process and worked on inking, flatting, shading, backgrounds and lettering on rotation. Honestly with the tones looking as good as they are, you probably only really need to add the extra step of flatting and maybe a couple of filtering tweaks at the end. I think I read in your A/N that it was the colour selection that took you a while, but once you nail down palettes and refer to the same palette constantly for recurring characters, it no longer takes time. Thoughts? XD;

Yeah. Honestly I have thought about it several times on how to divide the labor up. I just feel the dividing itself would add more delay to the whole process... I may not be sure. But seems easier to just just do it all myself. Which still would cost time I'm not sure would be a good sacrifice. The delay between the divide seems to be what we may need to tie down first. But it's something to think about... but when I see you do it all I feel like damn, there's 2 of us and we gotta get our sh*t together haha. Keep up awesome work. I'm catching up.

I think it probably would take time for a team to figure out what works best for each other and nail down a working schedule and process. If your comic is any indication you guys are a good team! ^_^

Thank you for your kind words, Low, I appreciate it ;v;* I'll keep doing my best! <3
