Well somebody set off a hand grenade or something and the cops shut down the beach, so I got to get home an hour or two early to start drawing a comic for today, which is good because while initially I had thought the next one was a close-up of Vero's helmet, which would be relatively quick to draw, when I was thinking about it earlier this afternoon I realized that I'd stuck the line that page was supposed to have, "Is she--," on *Friday's* comic, which in my script and storyboards had been planned to be silent. So there's no use for the Vero close-up page after all, which means I get to skip to the next page, which will take longer to draw because it has a girl in it. And just so I'm not rippin' you off, here's a suuuuper bonus of the skipped page's storyboard!|
Wowwwwww, check out that cube and Pac-Man ghost and stuff. :o|D
I was checking out the site on my brother's fancy-schmancy new Android phone thingy at the beach, and it actually works pretty well in that thing's browser. I was thinking that the prev/next text links were a little on the tiny side, but for one thing the browser lets you increase font size anyway, and for another, you can totally just click on each comic image to move to the next one, which is a feature of my own comic that I keep forgetting about. ;)
Added 1 new A* page:Oh gray backgrounds, why do you keep tempting me? The combination of gray rear wall and gray foreground shadows proved really not well suited to quick execution with my drawing method. I gotta get this weird gray urge outta my head, rarrarararh.
Late on Sunday I for some reason started messing around with that page from episode 9 on which a drawing of Selenis came out looking oddly like Marilyn Monroe, or anyway not really like Selenis does usually. I tried angling it a bit and making it into a banner
but I dunno, it's a little rough and I think not quite the thing. Then I thought hey if I'm making like it's Monroe then why not Warhol it up a little, from which resulted this thing, a larger version of which you can get to in the episode 9 gallery by clicking on this smallish version:
