Artist of the Month: Pika-la-Cynique

Pika-la-Cynique is one of the artists who found inspiration in AsheRhyder's Roommates doujinshi. Pika-la-Cynique has created Girls Next Door which is from a slightly different point of view though the cast is essentially the same. Both comics work wonderfully with each other.

Here is the first page of Girls Next Door:
"A whole new year of insanity begins!
Presenting the Girls Next Door (well, technically they're upstairs but I liked the name better) ... that is, the girls' side of the Roommates story.

Roommates, starring Jareth, the Phantom of the Opera, Commodore (or Admiral) Norrington, Javert and supporting cast all living in modern apartments and driving one another up the wall is a fancomic by the wonderfully talented and hilarious :iconasherhyder: Go forth and read it, if thou hast not yet done so.

After expressing my boundless admiration and love of the strip, I begged permission to try my hand at a pendant comic... with, naturally, Sarah and Christine in the main roles.

The few times they've appeared in Roommates, the girls have been a sensible, civilizing influence, and stood as a united front against the silly boys.
Expect a lot more craziness and bitching to be going on in their own apartment.

Here's the first one. This is up as a test - please question and critique away and let me know your thoughts on legibility, etc... I'm wondering whether it's worth me inking these, if I have the time...
I have loads of ideas scribbled down, but I'll be very open to suggestions.

This is a work of fanart, and solely intended for shits and giggles. No money is being made by this.
Sarah (c) Henson, Lucas and Connelly.
Christine (c) Leroux and Webber.
Based on an idea by ~AsheRhyder "
