One thing i forgot to mention in my last rant was that there was a deadline for ordering the f33l t3h luv b34r - if you want one you'll need to order it by 12:00 noon (EST) tomorrow (Wednesday, February 6). Once all the orders are in, we'll get our bear supply, make 'em all, and get them shipped out to you in time for V-day. So be sure to order yours today if you wanna capture one.
(yes, the title of this rant is a spoof of the "bear does (insert activity here)" series of childrens books that are particularly awesome. :)
One thing you may or may not notice (it depends on how the guys tweak things) you may notice that there are two rants in this column - the rant i posted on Sunday is still here on the front page, just nudged below this one. The idea is that this will allow us to do shorter, less coherent rants whenever we want without having to try to coordinate them with comic releases. Pretty neat, really. Thanks guys :)
Also of note -monday's comic is now posted, with all the digital hatching in place. This comic is a little rough around the edges in general, but it came out fairly decent. I'm starting to get a better feel for how this will work, as well as an idea for different techniques for applying it. All in all, a rather successful experiment. Rendering and hatching is still and always will be a part of my artwork, but i can apply it as an artistic element when needed rather than trying to hand hatch everything - which will also lead to more consistency from comic to comic.
In other randomness, in case you were wondering what exactly it was that largo is wearing. Well, not exactly, but close. Yes, i think i lost my mind when i decided to put largo in this jacket. ^^;; I think i need to have him fall into a paint bucket or maybe have the zombies burn it off of him or something...
In case you didn't already know, Camouflage is t3h n33t.
