  The internet is HUGE now! 8oFeb 22, 2011 1:57 AM PST | url
Added 1 new A* page:Only one page for you from this President's Day, but my excuse is slightly better than usual, and I've got an image-filled post! Which still doesn't make up for it but ah well.
If you look closely at today's page you may notice that the lines are somewhat smoother and more intricate than usual, and it's because a friend of mine gave me a 1080p monitor! Man! So now I can have the whole comic blown up at double size while I'm working on it, which really helps when drawing tiny stuff. It took me a lot of fiddling around with it today to get comfortable--I'm awfully finicky and fear change, you know--but I think this is gonna be really good for A*. :D And since I'm twice as zoomed in when working now, I've doubled my working resolution to 7648x3800 (8 times the size you see it here), and that'll mean prints and stuff are sharper, and also it makes the art more flexible, as I can re-use it at more sizes for banners and so forth.
For instance, here's Selenis strutting along from today's page, when seen at the zoom level I'd have been working at on my old 1280x1024 monitor:
and here's my screen (shrunk down from 1920x1080) while working on the page:
And here's a doodle I made last night for an art exercise on The Webcomic List's forum (that thread is very mildly NSFW, mind you):
(That and the larger Selenis from today are both in the episode 12 gallery, always accessible from the "episodes" link on the site's top menu.)
And here's the the soundtrack for it:

And good day! :D
