Manga page practice. It turned out okay I guess. XDD
Now this takes some explaining. Like a lot of story telling.
This is during the University years. And is about two things really; where Doug gets the idea of becoming a detective and the blooming of his relationship with his ex-fiance, Toni. Her and Doug had to work together on a presentation project to show to the course group, and struggling for inspiration on what to do it on Toni leeched through some of Doug's portfolio work. There she saw tons of written essays he wrote on famous crimes throughout history, admitting that he had a big fascination about it. One of the essays she found was on Jack the Ripper, and impressed with the amount of detail he wrote about it all, suggested they present that. Doug made a slight joke on how if he ever became a professional historian he'd like to be the one to find out who Jack the Ripper was, and poked fun at the idea of being a detective, whilst Toni took it seriously and actually thought he'd make a good one with the work he's done. Theeeeen the scene you see here.
It all started out so sweet. Then Doug gets obsessed with his work so much that it drove her away and she broke up with him 4 months after getting engaged. I seem to love torturing this dude. ;_; XD
Manga studio is still a pain, but I'm getting to grips with some things now.
