Pre-pirate Louis fluff with his musical protégé Olivier. Because nothing says "I Love You" like drooling all over each other in your sleep.

Every time I see Oliver I'm overwhelmed by how cute they are and how sad I'm gonna be when you eventually reveal what happened to him. It's gonna be bad isn't it? It's gonna be bad.

It's not bad as in "oh god he died a horrible, cruel death", but they don't have the happy ending most people are looking for, yes.

Indeed. What better way to say I love you than drooling all over your partner while dreaming of romantic spooning when you're actually sprawled all over them?
Thank goodness it's not the other way or else poor Olivier would probably suffocate on Louis' hair. I wonder  if he has ever choked some one with it?

Forgive me but I'm lookin at his hair and the image of him as Rapunzel just popped in. James would be Flynn and Santiago as the horse as he's always trying to catch them. Oh good grief! Now it won't leave my head! I can just see it! I'm sorry! 

I think these two are a better love story than Twilight

Was this intended as line art only, or did you intend to add color to it?

I ask because as line art, it's very delicate and detailed, but that actually undermines the effect of the pages a bit. There are no real areas of high contrast to add definition, so the lines become lost in each other and the eye has to work harder to see what's going on. It ends up making your work, which is usually very lively and expressive, seem a little bit more stiff as well, just because it's so structured on the page. For working with just lines like this, I would say that you shouldn't be afraid to use black. That first panel was really helped by your adding areas of deeper contrast, but I'd love to see you take it further and get a little crazy and bold with the black next time and just see what happens. 

Unless you were going to add color. In which case, this kind of delicate line art works just fine and the addition of some heavy blacks would just be redundant and a completely different style of thing.

The lineart is exactly the same process as I do for my coloured stuff, but I just don't have the time to colour every "small" comic like this in the huge backlog of work and personal projects I have lined up. I see what you mean, though, and working with more darkened shadows is something I want to improve on. I'll be trying more colour-less comics to see if I can get better at it, so thanks for the crit. :) I've always been "afraid" of shadowy areas, according to my art teachers ... a possible side-effect of learning to colour from Neopets.

The use of heavy black is a pretty scary thing, yeah. There's always the worry that it will obscure what you've gone to so much trouble to put down on the page, and it's easy for it to feel too heavy, especially if you're not used to using a lot of it. In my observation, though, using black well is less about shading and more about controlling the use of negative space. It's one of those things where it doesn't necessarily have to follow the light, so long as it follows what the eye needs to see most. It can be kinda counter-intuitive like that.

I'll definitely keep that in mind. While HAT stays pretty close to the more toony style I'm accustomed to, I do have projects in mind that are supposed to relay a more somber atmosphere, so I'll definitely start practicing this technique.
