Seriously messed up Suzie's house

JitterbugJive

So with my new job I get driven around the city a lot which lets me get a good look at how the neigborhoods there look, and I realized something because of it. Suzie's house looks NOTHING like a portland house, or at least, the yard doesn't. This is suzie's house:


Meanwhile a typical Portland house looks like this:




One of the things that makes Portland uniquely Portland is just how much green is incorperated within the city, there's a tree at least every 10 feet in most areas and in residential areas the plants are overflowing. This house Suzie has is just a standard typical cartoon character's house and it just doesn't work, especially with Suzie's obsession with plants. So at some point I'm probably going to add a lot more to any of the pages with house and street views, I can't claim I'm showing off my home land when I can't even get the details right. I even forgot the fact that there are huge rolling hills and mountains on all sides of us.

I feel ashamed of myself ><

Chapter 4 Updated

JitterbugJive
Word bubbles and text have been fixed up in chapter 4! Also, I made it a little more obvious that Mary's dad is drunk, since some people didn't pick up on that right away.
You can compare old pages to the new pages by viewing them on webtoons or tapas, which are linked in the "other mmg locations" tab.

Chapter 3 Pages Updated

JitterbugJive
Just finished editing chapter 3s pages with better text and word bubbles, also some added background effects which were sorely needed. You can compare to the old pages by viewing the old pages on Tapas or Webtoons.

Chapter 2 pages updated!

JitterbugJive
I finished fixing the font and word bubbles in chapter 2! This is a bit of a grueling process but comparing the fixed pages to the old pages I can safely say it's worth it. There's no way I'd approach a publisher the way most of the pages of the comic look right now, but once I get everything updated to look more professional I'll be a little more confident to try.

Chapter 1 Updated

JitterbugJive
Just finished updating the font and word bubbles in chapter 1, along with adding a few new effects to backgrounds that were lacking because I didn't have the patterns that I do now. Again, if you want to compare to the original pages, simply view them on tapas or webtoons, which are linked in the 'other MMG Locations' section of the side buttons on the site.

Pilot Updated!

JitterbugJive
The 10 page pilot has been given better font sizes and the added effects and filters that later pages started using to give a more 'TV' feel to them. I'll be slowly working through all the chapters to update them and I'll announce whenever a chapter is completed.
You can view the old pages for comparison on any of the other websites MMG is posted on, which are all linked here: http://www.mymagicgrandpa.com/links/
Here's an example of what the old pages looked like and what they look like now

Some more fixes to come

JitterbugJive
The boy's name in The Reaper's Cabin is going to be changed, not sure to what yet but it'll be different, again because he originally wasn't my character.
Also, I'm having my hand made font updated so that it has more symbols and reads better, it should close any awkward gaps between letters and be more level than before. It's mostly done, but there may be a few letter spacing gaps that were missed so those are being worked out slowly as they are found.
Once I'm confident the font is completely ready, I'm going to gradually update the old pages to have the better font at a smaller size and fix up the old word bubbles so they look consistent with the ones used now.

Reaper's Cabin pages fixed

JitterbugJive
Well uh, I got that done a lot faster than I thought I would. But the first and last page of the Reaper's Cabin have been successfully updated and changed, so go check them out if you're interested in how the boy looks now!
