Added 1 new A* page:First, I need to mention that there are four days left in the auction for the new Selenis watercolor painting I did this past weekend; here's a glimpse of it—the eBay auction page has the full view!|
Second, some of you newer readers may not have been around for it, so while we're in this giant (of the robo monster kind) scene here in A*, I may as well mention that back in the early days of A*, when behind-the-scenes A* stuff wasn't eating into my weekends and I was otherwise free and frolicsome : D, I spend my Saturday nights making a weekly black and white fantasy comic called The Princess and the Giant, involving a young princess and, yes, a giant—though a young and friendly one. PatG ran from 2009 to 2012, technically, although toward the end it got sort of weirdly off-topic and random. (._(. (I was doing some other comics at the time, too. ":P)
I hadn't even thought of the connection until I actually sat down and started drawing this latest giant—and a day or two ago a long-time reader pointed it out, too—but I guess I've still got giants on the brain to some degree. They're fun to draw, although it can be pretty darn tricky to keep finding ways to fit giant-sized and normal-sized people in the same panel. So maybe we'll just have a giant in A* every four episodes or so, how's that? = D : P Ooh! And we can rename it "Supergiant Black Hole A*"! : D Yessssssss.
