*Knocks* [Hello security camera. We just moved in across your room...]

Weekly Friday submission...disappointing that I cannot submit comics, but for now this will do. :c

This picture was originally something like "Hi I'm going to kill you" but then it's a bit overused and I felt the need to practice backgrounds. Also Kai's not that evil . I've been concerned about my drawings looking too flat, but after getting some coloring advice from my sister, I'm pretty happy with the outcome. No doubt that there are still some color and lighting mistakes and that I need more practice, but it looks less flat.

There is supposed to be some sort of hard light on the ceiling, but I don't think it's indicated well enough. Lighting is difficult. Lastly, I cheated a little by using texture in the background and for the camera effect.

This is when Kai and his mommy finally moved away from his abusive father. Not the best apartment, but happy family!

On a side note, Kai's hair finally makes sense.

But I think it is almost perfect!And it is not that flat.maybe the problem is the light from his back but his face is too light.
