HOW DO I AIR

I drew this months ago for the HSO, but it was voted down in favor of another entry from my team, so it wound up never seeing the light of the internet. (And not just because of the lack of cleanliness and the incredibly shitty coloring job.) Nep<>Eq is one of my few OTPs, as in I will actively advocate and defend that ship and tell others why it’s great |D
The idea was that Vriska found Darkleer’s journal, offered it to Equius, who was a complete racist dick to her, and she tears it up and leaves it at his doorstep in rage/revenge. He meets Nepeta for the first time after he goes off on a journey to find the pages, and from then on it was snippets of their growing relationship and personal improvements — Nepeta had a better grip on reality and wasn’t so constantly playing pretend, and Equius became more affectionate and less of a belligerent, racist dick. There were plot points surrounding various lost pages of the journal, and I still have the script somewhere on my computer, but I had to scrap 90% of what I’d planned because of time— and you know what, I’m weirdly okay with that. It works the way it is for what it is, and I honestly probably bit off more than I could chew with the original script, even without a deadline.
I’m proud of it, honestly, even though I can see so much wrong with it. It’s the first comic I ever completed, and I tried a lot of things I never did before and pushed myself into uncomfortable places.
Maybe I’ll hate it tomorrow, but at least I know it’s an important first step in who/how I am as an artist, and I should be proud of myself for that.
