Been a while, huh? Well, life's been a bit busy, yada yada, you know the drill. Still, here's the next page in all it's colorful glory, though story wise, not much is happening. This was primarily just a way for me to stretch my artistic skills in addition to setting up the next scene.

And our party has finally arrived at the church. This is another one of those "textless" pages I'm somewhat fond of. Hopefully Daisy's feelings are on full display through her body language, however, if you want to see the page from the original series this is based on go here: http://shortycomics.smackjeeves.com/comics/879462/wb-pg-6/

It's the second half of that page.

Anyway, hope things are effective and as always,
Hope you enjoy :)
Well, here's the next page, and GODDAMN did it take longer than at first glance. Seriously. When I look at the finished product, it really doesn't look like it should have taken me half the time it took to make this. Eh, maybe that's a good thing though. I think I heard somewhere somebody say that if an audience can recognize the mechanics of the art, whether the execution is good or bad, then the intent is not fully realized. Or something like that.

Anyway, I hope YOU guys can at least appreciate this page at face value and I thank you for waiting.

Hope you enjoy :)
Well, I'm definitely rusty. Still, hope you guys will forgive me for the long absence. Hopefully I can start updating with somewhat regularity again, but I MAKE NO PROMISES! (Darts eyes left and right)

Anyway:
Shade
I'm feeling even better about shading hair now. It used to be I'd just amble along a contour, but no more! Now I make use of the erase function and thus obtain sharper definitions.

Prolongation of a scene
I know this scene has been going on for a while now, but please bare with, as Daisy's complete transformation is nearly . . . complete . . . (Darts eyes again)

When the colored version is up, this will either be deleted or put into a sketch dump folder

Well, here's the next page. Again, it do wish it were colored, but the story is the most important part and for all you guys not thrown off by its lack of color, the continuation of the story is your timely reward. For all you people not viewing the comic till it's in color, you'll just have to wait.

Sorry.
Well, not that sorry, but still . . . .

Hope you enjoy :)
Just a sketch for now

Note: This will be colored in in the future
When the colored version is up, this will either be deleted or put into a sketch dump folder

Well, decided a sketch is better than nothing and the story must go on. I do intend to color it but it might be a while before that happens. Anyway, this is the continuation of the story. Roxanne is at the school clinic and the nurse reveals herself. The battle from last page being cut away cause I'm an evil bastard :evillaugh:

Loving the pokemon references :love:

Next page. Like a couple of others I've done, this one is textless since there really isn't anything interesting for them to say.

Hmmm . . . . maybe "Taco!" but that's probably 'cause I'm hungry.

Lines are sketchy in this one. Was playing around with the idea of handdrawn line art instead of the usual node stuff. That'll serve two purposes: I'll get better and faster at hand drawn lineart, and it currently is MUCH faster to ink by hand than by going node by node.

Anyway, enjoy. :)
back
Well, people have been demanding it and I've kind of been depressed about not doing it so I'm back.

Long story short, a bunch of depressing stuff happened, started learning how to drive semi trucks and now i'm a solo driver. hardly have any time to do anything now since I'm working 10 to 14 hours a day, but life just isn't worth it without expressing myself in some way and enough people really seem to like this comic, so here it is, in comic form even though i can't access my fonts and use regular speech bubbles, i just have to use text by hand
for now.

Hopefully I will eventually have enough funds to purchase a better computer and hopefully I won't stupidly delete essential fonts, rendering adding typed text to the pages impossible.
Anyway, not sure how often i'll update, but i'll do my best.


Hope you enjoy.
Cryptic Fourth Panel
Yeah, wasn't very good at realizing early on that the blue mage is coming from BEHIND and so the part where she's looking into his eyes seems more awkward than it needed to. Honestly, drawing the BACK of her head would not only have made better sense, but it would have been EASIER and FASTER.

Damn it, you'd think I'd have embraced the chance to be lazy. For, er . . . artistic reasons.

Silly Hands Why, oh WHY?! Did I draw the mage's hands that way in the panel four? They're like . . . fleshy versions of the Hamburger Helper hand.

What I should have done to make it more sinister was draw the fingers, instead of fat and stupid, lanky and sharp.

Fourth panel . . . nnnnngggnnn!

Let the crazy begin! So this is the beginning of Daisy and the insanity that will spawn her. We see a glimpse of that in the final panel, where the mind warp girl catches a flash of the very near future . . . of psychosis!

But no, Daisy won't turn out to be a psychopath herself.

OR WILL SHE?!

. . . . . . Probably not.

Intentionally Vague The backgrounds in the first two panels were a result of me not really having any backgrounds planned (yes, I script my backgrounds).

Thus the generic effect stuff going on in the first two panels.

Anyway, hope you guys enjoy :)

Moo-ving It
Based off this page from the original series: http://shortycomics.smackjeeves.com/comics/879462/wb-pg-6/

(With the exception that they haven't met daisy yet)

Explaining the Mix-up
Okay, I erred a bit here. There's no rational way to come up with how the blue mage gets around a city by walking BEFORE transforming the bus driver. Even if in the original, Daisy was there, in this version, since the man who will be Daisy is in a different locale, it just wouldn't work.

So I re-ordered the numbers and uploaded this page.

Sorry guys, I know many of you were hoping for the next sequential page, but I want this to be good and with less inconsistencies, the better. ^^;

I'm starting to grow fond of Red The red-headed bridesmaid is starting to grow on me. She makes great material for hilarious non-sequiters and easy punch-lines.

Though I'm probably evil for liking the position she's in, considering her circumstances.

What's in a name?
For the longest time, since I even came up with the character, I've always been labeling our bovine friend as "Ms. Cow".

Well this kind of impersonal naming ends today! Let it be known that today "Ms. Cow" will be known as "Ms. Honeysuckle."

Pending a better name offered of course.

Hair Shading
Came up with a better method for shading hair, and to boot, it's faster than inking each individual strand!

Hurray! Laziness!!

But yeah, kind of proud of myself for experimenting with it. I feel it better highlights the individual strands WAY better than I draw or ink them ^^;

Changes from the original
Mainly concerning Ms. Honeysuckle's appearance. As a human I changed his hair from blond to brown. Not entirely sure why other than it seemed to fit with the over all color scheme of the comic and hey, it was going to be brown after the transformation anyway, so why not, right?

The bovine form is quite a bit different. No udders this time. (How the hell can a cow girl have udders AND boobs? I suppose it's as possible as anything given the world my comics are in but still, there is NO modicum of logic in that. Either udders or boobs. Choose wisely!!)

Also no clothes. So, you know, if you didn't feel like this comic was particularly suited for minors, you should probably have a good idea now.

And, the more astute among you may notice she is NOT branded this time. This might come into play later in the story.

Maybe.


Anyway, guys, hope you enjoy :)
What's Going On
Basically TGW is still updating except it's no longer in the form of comics.

If you go here: http://hipper-reed.deviantart.com and click on the picture that says Ch.7 pt.2 (It shows a crossdressed Chase kicking some big guy) you'll find that it's no longer being done in the form of comics but in the form of a light novel with illustrations.

This serves a couple purposes; one, the story should go much faster (well, a little faster anyway) and I really REALLY want to finish this story, (without rushing it, obviously). Two, it frees me up to make other stuff as well.

Don't know how I'm going to post stuff on the site here though, as I'm not sure how/if Smackjeeves will let me upload text. ^_^;;
It IS primarily a web-comic hosting site after all.

Sorry guys, it was fun while it lasted, but I had to switch the medium for sanity reasons. See, I don't just make this but also Shorty Comics ( http://shortycomics.smackjeeves.com ) and commissions which you can find on my DeviantArt site ( http://hipper-reed.deviantart.com )

Hope that helps everybody. I was planning on posting a comic about this but . . . . I don't know when that's going to happen.

Anyway, that's the news for now. Thanks to all who've been reading and thanks to all who will continue to read (quite literally now).
Based off this page of the original series: http://shortycomics.smackjeeves.com/comics/879460/wb-pg-4/

This page brought to you by Open Palms and the Color Red
Yeeaahhhh . . . . Probably too much red on this page.

See, I kind of wanted to mesh the foreground colors with the redish tint to the sky but it almost looks like I put a huge red filter on everything, like major Hollywood movies do in the name "realism".

This is a Webcomic. A TG fantasy cartoony comic.
Too much realism just doesn't belong here.

And yeah, don't know what my subconscious was thinking when it said, "Draw hands with open palms. Open palms are boss!"
"But what about variety and fitting the pose and postures and body expressions an--"
"OPEN PALMS! NOW!!!"
"Okay! Yeesh. Settle down, subconscious. You're being a douche . . ."

I think I might have side tracked a bit . . .

Anyway, yeah there's that and too much red, probably.

Not only that but there are THREE redheads in the same page here!

What is this, The Wotch ?

Poor Little Crying Puppet
Okay, I think I might be taking The Blue mage's sadistic streak a hair too far.
Like, Angel Stokowski territory too far, but we'll see what comes of it. Maybe she'll get a reprieve later on.

Maybe.

I mean, she (he at the time) DID try to mug him and everything, and wasn't very pleasant to his new wife . . .

But still . . . man, Blue Mage is a dick.

You got me Suicidal . . . Well, maybe not
In case anybody wants to know, Dave (the man who got dumped) is depressed, for sure, but I don't think he's suicidally depressed.

However, that's my interpretation and I intentionally left that part up to the readers because it's a kind of a touchy subject. Yes, you could say that ultimately his fate is better if he IS suicidal since the contrast between depressed and blissfully happy is MUCH wider than kind of bummed and blissfully happy.

But then again, it's a touchy subject.

I think he might have suicidal thoughts, but again, I drew him in a way where he's not leaning over the bridge's edge, so maybe he's just thinking about it.

Also, I didn't want this comic to be too angsty and without actually SHOWING his breakup or what lead to it, it's kind of pointless anyway.


Anyway, hope you enjoy :)

TGW vs Shorty Comics
Well it's been another long while but I managed to get another page done. I think I'm going to start titling my pages for WB DX since it's not going to be too long (maybe fifty or so pages).

I kind of like the idea of doing shorter, more concise strips as opposed to long epics, which are nice and fun, but I just no longer have the time for it.

I'll address this problem later in the week, (hopefully, barring another catastrophe), but even though I don't plan on retiring The Good Witch yet, I may decide to stop making comics for it.

I was thinking about switching it to a different medium.
Sort of.

Anyway I'll talk about revealing my idea come this Friday or so. (Again, barring any acts of Gods).

The many sizes of Gonads
This is a joint problem of not drawing for almost a month as well as not catching myself before I'm in the final stages of shading.

But yes, the blue mage should NOT be as squat and . . . weird as he's portrayed in the first two panels. The last panel I believe the proportions are right, but again, forgive me for that.

Give me a head with hair
Some people might have noticed I drew people's hair way more in detail in this page. I'm not sure how much I'll stick with it since it's a huge time killer trying to shade each strand, but the overall affect looks okay to me ^_^

Mr. Bouquet
Suffice it to say, this page is based off page five of the original comic I made years ago, found here: http://shortycomics.smackjeeves.com/comics/879461/wb-pg-5/

In that one, the little girl is changed first (sorry for spoiling it for you newcomers ^^; )

In this one, Daisy will be the next character shown. Well, a version of Daisy anyway. Specifically one a lot older and more male.

Anyway, the older version of Mr. Bouqet, if I'm not mistaken, had blue eyebrows. I'm not sure what kind of acid was spiked in my tap that day, but now his brows are normal.

Still has those pointy implants though. I likes me te' pointy implants.

Blushing Bride
The final panel basically shows the same poses (only better done) as the final panel of the original fifth page of this series. However the text is different.

This is mainly due to me getting tired of every other cliche out of Eliza's mouth was "tee-hee".

So I went with a more George Takei-ish opening line. "OHHHH Myyyyy."

Anyway, hope you guys enjoy :)
Looks Familiar?
Despite the fact that this is a reboot in general, many eagle-eyed readers may noticed I updated a few poses and "shots" from THIS page: http://shortycomics.smackjeeves.com/comics/879460/wb-pg-4/

Especially that page's fourth panel (the penultimate panel in this page).

The Amazing Technicolor Bridesmaids
This time around, I decided to color the dresses for the new bridesmaids differently, instead of giving them all the same pink and . . . pinker . . . motif.

I think the variety adds more character to the otherwise mind-crushed victims (I mean maids).

Action backgrounds
To be honest, I was sorely tempted to just make those "gradient" backgrounds but they didn't seem special enough, so I added some scenery.

Yes, I realize it doesn't make much sense and may actually serve to further confuse, but hopefully the Mage's comment underneath the four panels helps relay the situation.

I'm actually quite fond of the "emerald forest" effect the fourth panel has and I'm rather sad it's only imaginary and likely won't be appearing again in this series.

My "waterfall" effects need a bit more work, however ^^;

Chibis!
At first I wasn't sure having a chibi Gonad would have been a good idea, considering the situation.

But the tone of the comic on the whole, I feel, is a bit more lighthearted on the surface, though with dark undertones.

So the fact he goes from cute Chibi to scary psychopath in two panels adds the desired contrast to convey such feelings.

At least that's what I was going for ^^;

poses
As mentioned above, the poses (with the exception of the Brunette maid) in the last panel all are directly made from the fifth panel of this page: http://shortycomics.smackjeeves.com/comics/879460/wb-pg-4/

Anyway, hope you enjoy :)
Old pose, new paint
So the last panel of this page shows Eliza and the mage posing in exactly the same way they did in the first panel here: http://shortycomics.smackjeeves.com/comics/879460/wb-pg-4/

Puppets and Mind Control
I'm not sure what would be worse. At first it'd be easy to say Ms. Red has it worse since she's experiencing the torture of not being able to control her body.

But at least she still has her mind. The other women may be free to move as they see fit but they no longer control their own thoughts.

It's an interesting concept. I definitely think keeping somebody aware of their entrapment is more vindictive, but still not sure if it's less preferable to losing your mind entirely.

Best Kiss Ever
There needs to be more gay and lesbian kissing. In like, ALL forms of media ^_^

Anyway, hope you guys are enjoying it :thumbsup:

It returns
Finally, a continuation of the reboot of one of my first series (original found here: http://shortycomics.smackjeeves.com/comics/879444/wedding-bliss/ ).

This is the next page to the DX version (beginning of DX series can be found here: http://shortycomics.smackjeeves.com/comics/879515/wb-dx-pg-1/

Maybe this time I'll finish it
Maybe. Anyway, want to continue it so here's the next page to Wedding Bliss DX, which was sort of cut short about a year ago.

Here's the next page.

Putting words in their mouths
Hopefully it's clear that the short-haired ginger woman isn't speaking of her own volition, but words are forced from her lips nonetheless.

Missing Person
The woman with the pink hair from page ten ( http://shortycomics.smackjeeves.com/comics/879527/wb-dx-pg-10/ ), last seen being tied up or something, IS here with the rest of them but I didn't really see an opportunity to fit her in on this page.

Rest assured she didn't just wink out of existence ^^;

Wandless magic
I might have hinted at it before but here's a big clue as tot he source of the mage's power. It doesn't seem to be coming from the wand this time . . .

Shut up and kiss me
I always thought the idea of gagging somebody by kissing them to be an interesting, romantic take on the whole BDSM world.

Eh, thought it worked here at least ^^;

Anyway, hope you guys enjoy :)

Can you spot the cameo?
A character from a now years dead webcomic of mine appears in this page.

Can you guess where and who it is? (No, it isn't Nestor the Warlock, even though the guy in the first panel kind of has the same hair style).

Egotist
As I've said before, behind that shy exterior is a bit of an ego, which may be a reason why Roxanne is singing in public and not caring much that other people are all like, "Seriously?"

Which brings me to:

Join in the Musical
No it makes absolutely no sense that random passerby are all like "eh-what the hell, let's sing along anyway."

I just really enjoy random musicals out of nowhere.

Flash Foward
The final panel isn't a thought panel because it's actually happening. Meaning time's leaped ahead a bit and we actually see her in her uniform.

People around her are still singing though. Because, hey, why not join in the insanity?

Because if I'm making a webcomic about a maniacal, power-mad, transformation-trigger-happy witch and the victims she creates, I might as well have people sing about it, by George!

Past Life
It's been mentioned before http://tgw.smackjeeves.com/comics/633803/ch-2-pg-28/ that Roxanne was a pretty good basketball player. I think I also explained to somebody that she sort of reveals herself to have a bit of an ego behind that shy exterior.

But she is pretty good at the sport.

Nowadays
Which brings me to my next point. A lot of people have been wondering, since she seems to be inherently good at cheerleading, needing little to no practice, does that mean she's lost the ability to play basketball?

Well the full answer to that is in this and the next chapter, but the penultimate panel here should give a hint:

(She's still quite capable of playing basketball . . . with the exception of dunking . . . . maybe).

Anyway, hope you enjoy :)

Your obligatory Cheer! reference. Take it home with you.
The webcomic this cameo is based off can be found here: http://www.cheercomic.com/?date=2005-08-09
And their origins here: http://www.thewotch.com/?date=2003-02-27

Let me just point out that the setting for this story does NOT take place in Tandy Gardens. Nor does it take place in Moperville or whatever city the Animorphs, uh . . . morph . . . in (in respect to this page: http://tgw.smackjeeves.com/comics/950974/ch-6-pg-103/ ).

I thought it'd make a funny cameo, though. Also really, really liked :iconmeago: 's depiction of Sam in this strip: http://www.cheercomic.com/?date=2010-10-09 So I took inspiration from that for her clothes.

Oh, and in case anybody asks why Roxanne is asking about a blond girl, her height, it's because a certain blond kind of got her into this. predicament in the first place: http://tgw.smackjeeves.com/comics/633794/ch-2-pg-19/ . Roxanne's been trying to find Angel and get her attention ever since.

The dude with the weird hair isn't really anything but a side character, but the hair itself IS heavily inspired by a manga called Futaba Kun Change. You should check it out if you ever get the chance. I like it better than Ranma (though, unlike Ranma's problem with being too long and going nowhere, this is too short and ends rather abruptly).

I love drawing Li Sung
I don't know what it is about this character, but she's growing quite well on me. Maybe it's her hair . . . .

Anyway, she makes her first appearance here: http://tgw.smackjeeves.com/comics/633803/ch-2-pg-28/

Return of the Trees
It's been a while ( http://tgw.smackjeeves.com/comics/633795/ch-2-pg-20/ ) since we last saw the two people turned into trees. A lot of fans have been asking about them. Here they are. Still not sure if people just choose not to notice or if there really is some kind of charm in place to keep people from noticing some very human-like trunks. Still, it seems they're slowly growing out of their anthropomorphic shapes, with extra branches growing in odd places, that kind of thing.

Obviously, Roxanne is too "drama-queen" about her own problems right now to really take notice.

Ponytail
I might draw more of Roxanne in a ponytail. It seems to suit her well enough. Let me know what you guys thing :)

Beyond that, enjoy :)

Spelling Fixed.
A thousand thankyous, Maxinesheela :)

And thanks for the spelling correction as well :P
This took an ungodly amount of time for such a simple idea. Oh well. As it is, I'm relatively happy with it.

If anybody's confused about who the subject is, go here: http://tgw.smackjeeves.com/comics/778568/ch-5-pg-74/

and here: http://tgw.smackjeeves.com/comics/778569/ch-5-pg-75/

Back when I was doing Brainfood, I also kind of played around with the idea of connecting the past with the present (in that case, the present with the future, but whatever). It's here: http://hipper-reed.deviantart.com/gallery/695436#/d1n800r (Beware, the art is OLD)
