Little Goat Girl and Chimney Sweeps

It's technically not done, but I can't think of anything for the last page. Any suggestions would be nice. (Warning: big files)

EDIT: It would help if they were in the proper order. :|
Plus I'm thinking that this is all there will be. Three pages feels right to me. Contradict me I DARE you.

Disney's 'Marry Poppins' is hardcore one of my most favorite movies of all time. It's so amazing. My favorite scene as a kid, and still is now, was the rooftop walk ending with the 'Step in Time' dance sequence.

And of course there's the song Bert sings which has always fascinated me... Especially this line:
"Up where the smoke is all billowed and curled
'Tween pavement and stars is the chimney sweep world
When there's 'ardly no day nor 'ardly no night
There's things 'alf in shadow and 'alfway in light
On the rooftops of London... coo,
what a sight!"

Yup that's what I had on my mind as I made this comic.

AMAZING PAPER + acrylic ink + gouache + TLC
Also a cool sweep picture: here.

Also a thank you card for my home-ward Bishop:

Who is saying "Thank you"?


Tea, Acrylic Ink, Gauche, White Prismacolor Pencil

Oh yah! Also, I passed the 100th post a while ago, so I'll do something cool for the 111th post. Or as Bilbo Baggins would say... the eleventy first!
Or whatever it is he says...

Awesome comic! I really really love the first page. The lower-left panel on that one looks a lot like you. Hooray for chimney sweeps!

Dudette- these scans do no justice to the originals.
