Here's another break from the road-trip storyline. I realized it had been a really long time since I did one of the classic Billy's snow fantasy strips, so I wanted to bring that concept back. I had a lot of fun with this one. I experimented with the linework — in the first and second panels, I only outlined the rocks and not the snow, for example. I also got to scribble rather aggressively when drawing the mountain, which is something I don't often do. Coloring this one was a hassle, given how much snow and wind swirls had to be drawn in, as well as the shadows on the rocks and mountains, but I'm really happy with how it turned out. I think my standards for the visual quality of this strip have gone up considerably recently, which means it takes longer for each strip to be completed. I hope the results are worth the wait, though!

Another reason it's taken so long is that my second semester of college has begun. I want to make an effort to post more this semester, but I can't promise anything because it's difficult for me to balance drawing with my schoolwork. I will try, though, I guarantee that.
