Hm, that second one came out all right, maybe I'll put a full (double) size version in the gallery on Monday.

Some time in the not-so-wee hours last night I realized my iconography was only halfway done--still had to update outdated representations of A* and my other comics on my various mirror sites, which tend to have their own custom icon sizes. So here's another slew:

I threw this thingy together today; it might end up as a sort of filler page on another webcomic:

On Friday I was thinking that I might put a large version of daily 16 up in the A* "gallery" viewer, but you know, with the new larger A* strip size, I don't know how much point there would be in putting up double-sized versions that probably wouldn't fit on most peoples' screens anyway. So I settled for posting the comic on deviantART, and while I was doing that, I found that deviantART's artist comment field didn't like the ampersand in my comic URLs. Silly deviantART! So I made a little script that will take a short version of an A* comic URL and redirect to the full address, like so; the long number at the end is just the number of the chapter (0008) and the number of the strip (0016). How exciting!

Ed Harrington was kind enough to add a Princess and the Giant link to the links page of his fine Nothing Happened Today comic, which you should check out, particularly if you enjoy reading meticulously drawn humorous non-adventures of semi-cerebral drunkards--and who doesn't, really?

Speaking of the Princess, here's a clickable link/bookmark/ad thingy that leads to her latest strip:

Playing with more types of static. The page 20 stuff is actually artifacts created by "lossy" GIF compression settings in a GIF animation program of mine; does a reasonable job of looking like some kind of interference pattern. Funny that a GIF would actually come out smaller with all that junk scattered around it, huh?

Phew, I need some wakey wakey too! Gotta stop pulling those Princess and the Giant weekend all-nighters. ;)

Didja notice the scene transition there with the big halftone effect? Did that work? I'm used to relying on animation for fadeouts, not sure how to do this static stuff. I was thinking I'd have to do one of those "Later..." caption-type thingies you see in comics a lot, but then this static fade out/in effect seemed less intrusive.

Kind of slow going, probably too many FX. Oh well. Magnets!

Spent way too long doing random cool space "research" on Wikipedia today but hey, that's where I get my inspiration for most of this A* stuff. And anyway I wrote up little summaries of the neat parts with nice pictures in forum articles in case you want to see neat stuff. SUCH AS:

- The doomed moon that's going to crash into Mars in 11 million years!
- The probe that's going to reach never-before-well-seen large bodies in the asteroid belt next year and maybe help determine if one of them is a "dwarf planet"!
- Smashing a comet and going back to check the big crater made on its surface!

Kaboom! Oh the space excitement, people!

Stealth edit! Wait I'm outing it so it isn't stealth... Well it kind of is since I'm not going to show you the old version. :P Anyway I redid the face on #26

Bah and I'd done the font for 29 and 30 in Sketchy's font size (18) rather than the A* size (20). Man I was out of it this past week! :P
