Far Out There: Incentive & Patreon Gallery

by Blitzkrieg1701
Far Out There is a SciFi/Comedy webcomic that's been running for years now, and not just on SmackJeeves. Along with all that main comic, there have also been many, MANY side comics published as Voting Incentives on Top WebComics, and more recently on Patreon. Until recently, the only way to go back and view these older comics was to root through an awkward list of Photobucket links, but NO MORE! At long last, this page will host all the stray comics in one convenient place, making your Far Out There experience complete!

Wow, quite a downgrade in art quality, huh? Well, this one went up the day after Thanksgiving... which is to say it went up hours and hours late because I passed out from over-eating waaaay too early.

As it's still only late November as I write this, I don't know if the Christmas comics will result in a lot MORE quickie doodles like this or what. Cross your fingers.
...aaaaaand we're back to just random fun doodles as Incentives for a while. Between the HUGE pile of Christmas comics and MULTIPLE Patreon comics all in the works, it seemed like a wise move to keep the Incentives more free form for a while.

But then, that's what I said before suddenly deciding to do over a month of text heavy imaginary album reviews, so who knows how long THAT'll stick?
I wish I was smart enough to have worked in some kind of sciency nerd joke with which elements appeared on the cover... but no, I just went with the ones whose letter combinations I thought looked nicest.
I freely admit to using an online fancy text generator for the shiny metallic lettering here, on the grounds that I'm fairly certain most indie sporting events do exactly the same thing.

(Also, I REALLY wish I was clever enough to have planned for this incentive page to go public on the same day that this year's Christmas series started. But nope, it's just a freakishly appropriate coincidence.)
You would not believe how many times I had to stop myself from using some form of "world" to refer to things spanning multiple worlds here.
...and you know what's sad? Some design firm was probably paid THOUSANDS for this cover.
This, right here, just might be the most metal thing I've ever drawn.
Originally, this was going to be gag of this year's Halloween comic: Astrid and Augusta would be in the foreground, Tabitha and Layla would be behind reacting, and everybody else would be in the background. Alas, that was just too complicated an arrangement, and the page was already running atrociously late as it was.

I really do want to find more excuses to show these two hanging out. I keep coming up with ways to connect these secondary characters, yet we never see any of them long enough to actually explore that stuff.

(By the way, I'm trying an experiment at posting pages out of order in different chapters. Let's see if everything goes live when it should!)
In a weird way, this is the most successful of all the album covers yet. Couldn't you just see this album gathering dust in the vinyl record bin at Goodwill?

Also, even when it's not actually Christmas time (well, it wasn't when I posted this) both Vashti and Rumiko still wind up having the most character development in a holiday context.
Vashti does everything ever. At all times.

(Pointless Trivia: This is actually the first of these albums to feature no hand-drawn element whatsoever. It's one hundred percent gradient layers and cropping tools and colored fonts. This was simultaneously the easiest and most BORING cover to do so far)
Just in case you thought these were JUST going to be random factiods with no bits of character building thrown in...
I'm not wild about the lettering on this one, but I REALLY like how the spotlight silhouette turned out here. With a little polishing up, I think that'd make a really neat label logo.
You guys don't understand how much I like writing reviews and bits of trivia about things that don't exist. It's weird. Really weird.

Also, that's not a crude airbrushed approximation of a wire-frame model, that's actually what Vashti looked like during this period.
Complain all you want, Blitz. When I look at this one, I only see awesome.
This would have been even funnier if there was a cut to a robot mortuary on the station where the bots running the recyclers express squeamishness at the nature of their job. Just to emphasize how far gone Vance really is.
So, remember when I said the incentives for the rest of the year were gonna be random doodles instead of another ongoing series? Well, they were... but then I had the weirdest, nerdiest, most pointlessly fan-only idea possible and just had to run with it. It combines three of my favorite things in life: world building, rock and roll, and wildly obscure trivia!
As always, Jenna serves as the author's personal mouthpiece regarding matters of temperature.

Well, that's it for another Incentive Series! I think we'll close out the year with another stretch of random one-off doodles after this... because MAN am I gonna have a lot of side projects to wrap up over the next few months...
It wasn't intentional, but since we've seen what Vashti's family looks like, you COULD suggest that Jenna's cosplaying as her pre-skin-greenening.
Back to Jenna dressing up as boy characters, though we're ALSO back to her being all happy and cute, so that's good.

Two things: One, I felt the need to throw more psychedelic lightshow stuff in the back since dressing up as Trigger really demands more of a 60s vibe than an 80s one. Two, I actually had to do this one twice, since my computer weirdly crashed before I could save, so sorry if it's rougher than usual.
Gee, I wonder what could have possessed me to draw Jenna dressing up as Pattie immediately after Mooney? Hmmm....
