Some arteest notes;
Frame 2 bothers me because it looks like Ron is too close to Sophie. Originally Sophie was supposed to be behind Ron, or between Ron and Tony, creating a triple division. But then I sucked at space management and this mess happened. At least the general technical execution isn't bad?
Frame 4 - yup, still don't know how to draw a cell phone.

Frame 5/6 - deliberately left the grid seperator to illustrate a distance and hard boundary between the two. Commonality of the actual gradient in the background to bring them together.
Its actually a well thought out frame, all things considered.
*polishes monocle*

Also...
DRAMA BOMB!

Did you guys catch it back when this incident happened? Was it too obvious back then?

I truly feel bad for Sophie. On the one hand, she is messing with someone who can barely figure out who they are. On the other hand, she wants to be with the person she wants to be with, and their faults aren't as important as their positives.

For the cell phone, draw the corners as curves, and instead of the line for the edge just have a little shading. Sounds awkward but it works after a few attempts.

And why is Sophie still calling her Tony? I think she's expecting the wrong thing, and the lack of communication earlier is why the drama took on bomb-like proportions.

@Elessir: There is a difference between getting it, intellectually, and [/i] getting it [/i]. Maybe Sophie gets it, and is trying to work with it, but.. she has never seen Toni physically in fem mode. Right now it is an asbtraction, not a concrete.

That, and Sophie seems confused with who she is talking to. In this entire debacle, is she talking to Tony, the boy she met and has known from the beginning? Or Toni, the girl, who she has never met beyond a slight change in personality?

When I was transitioning, this happened to me fairly often. People who knew me my whole life as my former self were 100% behind me, but sometimes got the name/gender wrong, because it is hard to simply up and change. It wasn't an offense to me, and I didn't take it as one - they could only work with what they knew.

Sophie is in a unique situation of dating someone like this, so there is somewhat of a focus on the physical beyond the standard, and of course, therein is where the definitive between Tony/Toni stands.
