You had a good chapter one. You introduced the cast, you introduced the central plot line (the tunnels between worlds), you introduced Shydog (you didnt introduce Hhuda but it's better that you didnt since he's kind of a secondary plot line), and while you didn't introduce the setting or the history, I have a strong feeling that it's better without a backsory monologue. All that's missing is everything after where you got up to. So I'm afraid, Ashley-lee, that you have no excuse but pessimism.
This type of thing is right up my ally, I'd happily pay money to see this story continue, but I'm fully aware that's totally up to you, so I look forward to more art posts and doodles about it when it pleases you.
Wonderfully done! I like how you chose certain close ups for the one panel(s), then pull back at the end for his final snippet of dialogue. Also, your art work is amazing as usual Love the colors and all that~ Great job!
