Don't get too excited. I've still got a fair bit of work to do. But if I can reveal a cover, you should take that as a good sign that progress is being made! ^_^

After months and months of having no idea how to present the cover for Volume 3, an idea just came to me earlier this week (after doing some selfies of my own), and this just flew out of my head and onto my tablet. The cover probably wasn't as much of a priority as everything else at the moment, but I definitely needed to make sure it was on paper before I lost my vision.

I'm very happy with it, but I think this might be the last "selfie" cover. With how much I struggled this time around, I'm realizing there are really only so many ways to depict a selfie. Don't get me wrong. Future covers will still be in that photograph style; they just might be taken by and/or include other people. Going THAT route, I already have good ideas for Volume 4 and 5's covers. ^_^

Can I also just say it's already weird drawing Rain like this again? I've adapted to her new look a LOT faster than I thought I would. >_>

Anyway, release window is currently slated for 2015. I'm not getting any more specific than that. Every time I try to name a clear date, something invariably comes up, hindering my progress. Hopefully it'll be out sooner than later, but as with previous volumes, I do not want to release an inferior product.

Take care and look forward to it! :D

Lovely! I love the outfit... And the rabbit. Puddle's always cute! XD

Farewell, old look. This is probably the last time you're drawn! ~

Well, technically Volume 3 occurs entirely before the haircut.

So with that said, Volume 4 (which will include the haircut chapter), will very likely also have long-haired Rain on the cover too, just so nothing is spoiled for those who read the story exclusively in print. ^_^

Ah, you're right. I forgot volume 4. Ten chapters would be a little too long for a single volume. x)

Reading this comic is physically exhausting. My body isn't prepared for all this extreme cuteness.
Despite this, continue the cuteness!

The image in the mirror is flipped.
Jocelyn 24th Jul 2015, 7:40 PM edit delete reply

Okay, there's a convoluted reason for that. My phone's camera flips my pictures. For example, at one point I posted a selfie while I happened to be wearing a Sailor Moon shirt. You can't see most of the image, but the word "ROLIAS" can be seen in that shot. I don't know if that's common, but I've become used to that.

So I guess I was taking that into account as something like a double negative. Rain takes a photo of her reflection, but then her phone flips the picture. Thus, it kinda goes back to how it started with her hair still covering her left eye and the Kaminari emblem having the black and white wings on the appropriate sides.

I think seeing her happy and having hair now is messing me up more than The Haircut did. :\
