Senku's Lab (SENKU'SLAB,Senkūzu Rabo) is the fourth volume of the Dr Stone manga.
IMAGINE WALKING TO A WORLD WHERE EVERY LAST HUMAN HAS BEEN MYSTERIOUSLY TURNED TO STONE...
Senku and friends continue their quest to procure a sulfa drug panacea for Ruri, the village shamaness who is gravely ill! The toughest ingredient to obtain is sulfuric acid, the search for which will lead them on a death-defying journey! Meanwhile, the Grand Bout Martial Arts Tournament approaches, with the chief's throne offered as a prize to the winner!
I stress about a lot of things while drawing and one of them is lids. Senku stores a bunch of science stuff in bottles and pots, but i often don't know what to do about the lids...
I also altered the way Senku's rocket operated by matching it to his age and technical capabilities
Wood and stone tools and the way the characters use them are drawn differently depending on their time periods. The same is true of the village's details.
I always think hard about this stuff so I don't ruin Inagaki Sensei's amazing story but there are plenty of times where i end up feeling disappointed because I don't have the time or talent.
I've drawn sci-fi manga, studied physics and read about a thousand books on science, yet I'm always blown away by Dr. Stone's faithful portrayal of science. It fills me with a sense of wonder and reminds me of my own inadequacy.
