It’s no lie - chapter 4 has launched, and a new page is up at The Muse Mentor! What has Mona been up to since we last checked in? You can also peek at all the cool guest art that went up over the past two weeks, if you missed it. As always, I get the best contributors!
All reblogs and spreading-of-the-words are appreciated! Thank you for looking, and we’ll see you again next Friday.
I’ve gotta reblog (possibly at some point tomorrow, too, fair warning!) this week, because it is a NEW CHAPTER, and if you didn’t know I have a webcomic… well… now you know!

Anonymous asked: Do u have a tutorial on penises? I saw you breast tutorial and was wondering if you had anothef because it was extremely helpfull
My lovely Anon, I am so happy the breast tutorial was helpful to you - cheers! I am definitely not a good source for help on how to draw a penis, though. Like, really really a bad source - the antithesis source of dick-drawing. I’m publishing this in hopes someone out there has a good penis tutorial for you. I know I have seen some floating around, before.

I had to sit on this for a day to make sure it didn’t go anywhere, but also to make sure I was okay with it after a boatload (exactly one boat’s worth) of corrections at the last moment! But I’m learning more and more with each full piece I do, so here’s hoping we keep on that trajectory!
stole BORROWED chainsma's Eleanor for Penn to dance with… she is always nice enough to let me plunk her into everything! This is what we would call “Bosky canon” versus the actual Vanished story's canon, but I won't bug you with that… just worth noting. And, by the way, if you ask us, the black and white version of this same picture is kind of neat to look at.

i was sketching ideas and was looking up references for plot-relevant clothes styles and… um excuse me w h a t
I hate to tell you this as a professional baker/cake decorator, but this is an actual thing. Aside from King cake with the baby figurine, there is also a VERY RARE THING where some baby shower cakes have a pregnancy belly, where they put like a toy baby in a gelatin mold.
We have never done one of these at our shop, but I’ve heard of them, before. I have heard sometimes they just stick the toy in the carved belly of the cake instead of gelatin, but I couldn’t find pictures of that!

A word about Misfortune High on Kickstarter
We all like to pay lip service to seeing more heroes of different ethnicities in comics, but I believe in doing more than just talk. I believe in doing something about the problem.
Misfortune High is the story of a spoiled rich wizard kid who gets sent to a wizard school in the ghetto as punishment for cheating, wherein we meet Star, Warren, Sonia, and Johnny Cuervo. The story is meant to look at the cultural and class divides in our society, but still keeping a sense of whimsy and fun with all the magic content.
Right now, Misfortune High is on the tail end of the Kickstarter to launch the second book and we need your help to make it real. In this Kickstarter, you can get book 1 to start from the beginning or get book 2 to get caught up. Both digital and print versions are available through the campaign. The campaign ends 4/11, with a few extra bucks left to fund so time is running out to support this great project.
The first 8 pages of book 1 are available to read here.
If comics diversity is a thing you care about, please support the doers in our community willing to put their pen where their mouth is. Thank you.
The kickstarter is less than $800 away from it’s goal with only four days to go! Jules is one of the hardest hustling indie creator people I know, please check out her book and consider picking up a copy and chipping in!
Chapter 3, pgs 96 & 97: In which we return to the garden.
[START @ THE BEGINNING] - [SUPPORT @ PATREON]
The hiatus was a great time to consider the next steps for the comic, but it is really good be moving forward once again.
Ahead of us is 64 pages of blood, sweat, and tears as Kilo Monster and friends now face the consequences of the events of the second chapter. Fair warning, Kilo Monster himself will not appear for several updates, but think of it as time to get to know how he has affected the lives of NIKA, Jaymi, and Todd Andrews. Kilo will be needing their help now more than ever!
Please consider supporting Monster’s Garden on Patreon if you enjoy the updates. Even if you cannot donate, please do reblog/share Monster’s Garden to show your support and help the comic grow. Thank you for reading, see you next Monday!
Yay! All my favorites are comin’ back! 2014 has been a good year for me, as a reader.

For all your laughing-at-my-sketch-roughs needs! I am so devastated to have to give up or repurpose this piece, but I just bit off more than I could chew with a style shift I haven’t mastered, yet.. so I thought I’d at least show a lot of the WIP stuff, because I have sunk a LOT of time into this. I know I’ll eventually do SOMETHING else with these two (because I love them - Eleanor, the girl, is chainsma's, by the way!) but this was just too much. Maybe I can retry it sometime when I've got my balance!
P.S. I wasn’t trying animation! Just 4 separate panels. I would have been a goner long-before-now if I had been attempting animation.

I like spring colors, but I am always the saddest at this time of year. What’s with that?
This is the full picture for that bike I slaved over yesterday. (You were all super kind about this bike. Thank you!)
I have one more picture to ink, I will slap some flats on them, and post a set of 4 drawings!
