I super dig this. I dig seeing Rocio as less than perfect in a purely mundane and real way. Its easy to take imperfection in a fantastic way like a bombastic temper or mysterious demonic past, but this is something unexpected and surprisingly relatable. I hope you do more of these experiments.

Late to the party but just wanted to say, it was neat getting this little look into Rocio's background life. Though I found myself wishing a bit for some more input from Rocio; most of this comic is Ms. Vanity monologuing, which I assume was to showcase how she's sort of just steamrolling Rocio but in the end it didn't give me much of an impression on how Rocio actually.... *felt* about what Ms Vanity was saying?

That said, I love the idea of Rocio magically putting makeup on, that's such a neat concept lmao

This was a very well-grounded comic overall. Your line-less art style carries a lot of substance despite being line-less because all the shapes are so well drawn.  The story and dialogue are well written and engaging. Good job!

short and sweet, it's a great insight into a small moment in Rocio's life, I don't  have any crits but this is a nice vignette into a moment.

This is such a great insight in Rocio's day to day activities and her inner conflicts (or at least one of them). Everyone thinks that being a magical girl is all sparkles and  pretty stuff but nobody thinks about what happens in moments like these. Thanks for giving us this glimpse , it only made Rocio a lovable character even more.

Rocio is a particularly tragic character to be subjected to the cold, calculating expectations of a media-focused magical girl system. It's not often that an artificial medium like comics acknowledges imperfections and makeup, either. Design itself is what makeup creates or highlights, and you had to purposely add the imperfections of a "normal" face. Although it doesn't directly tie into a storyline or contain a complete story, it is a really nice character moment on its own that deserved its own vignette instead of being shoved into a future storyline, so this was a good move.

Kind of sad and lovely ;; I’m really interested in whether she seems depressed because of the last battle, or if she’s felt this way the whole time and we’re up for a deeper dive into her backstory..

What a wonderful read.
In one page I feel like you have added layers of depth to Rocio. I'm really excited to see what you do with her in the future. Obviously as always your art and writing in on point.

I rarely visit VOID anymore, but I got a notification of a comic of yours, featuring Rocio.
Wasn't dissapointed to read this.

Rocio is one of my favorite characters of yours. Don't crush her. Much. :(

I had this scene burning in my head out of nowhere for a while, so I made this in a day. I decided against sticking it into my battle as a prologue page, I think it works better on its own

Hope you guys enjoy this brief moment about struggling to start the day~
