Ah, good to be back... well, for the most part. ^_^
I'm having a wee bit of trouble getting fully back into the groove of a three-a-week schedule, mostly because i keep getting distracted and working on other things (for example, the colored drawing of Yuki shown above). It felt pretty good to sit down and do wednesday's comic. Hopefully i can get my act together tonight and have a new comic for tomorrow. I *might* have to put it up saturday.
This weekend i need to wrap up my review of our trips to both Anime Central and E3 - I had a lot of fun on the trips, and the E3 trip deserves some time to write up a good report.
I had a chance to hang with some other web comic artists on the trip - in particular, Hot Soup of Lethal Doses (he's in the process of moving his site to a new server, as well as revamping it) joined Largo and I in the hotel lounge saturday night as we sat and tried to see who could draw the most 'wrong' piece of art. Freesketching at it's worst, my Corona addled brain (i knew i shoulda stuck to, like, Guiness or something) produced this drawing. What is sad is... Soup produced a drawing far far more disturbing. No, i won't scan it. Never in a million years... ^^;;;
Anyways, enjoy the new artwork over at Fredart today, and with any luck i *will* finish a new strip tonight. If not, i'll have it done satuday morning. ^_^ You know me tho, if i can make it tonight, i will.
Mornin all - as you can see, i didn't get the comic done for friday. This isn't laziness, its actually two other factors. First off, the art is a little more complicated than, say, what i did for wednesday. Its the type of thing you HAVE to start the day before (which i didn't - i goofed off and colored that drawing of Yuki instead ^^;;) secondly, I had two 'false starts', which i ended up crumpling up and tossing in the trash. Nothin blows holes in a tight schedule like trashing an hour's worth of struggling work. :P
Actually, i don't really do that very often. Typically, if i abandon a drawing i've started working on, i'll just put it aside - not in the trash. So that was another sign that it wasn't gonna happen today.
I'll finish it up later tonight and post it. thanks for your patience ^_^
