This is the main reason why I don't like my art. Though I'm sure it's similar for all other artists.
Flipping the canvas is the fastest way to find out you don't know anything about anatomy.

Incidentally, I should be working on a completely different animation, but instead I spent an hour on this.
This is not an explanation for why I was gone so long.

The comic before this one is more of an explanation for why I was gone so long. I did, however, leave my tablet pen at my mom's house after winter break, and I'm probably not gonna have it back 'til next weekend. While trying to figure out what to do about it, I had this conversation with myself. Oops.

Apologies for the terrible image quality. I don't actually have a scanner, and the imitation scanner on my phone isn't great. I ended up tinkering with it way too much in Photoshop, which kinda defeats the purpose of the comic, imo. I'll scan it properly later, when I can.

I've been trying to get out more.
For example, I should be figuring out how to write a cover letter right now.
Inspired by me taking my thermos to class for the first time earlier this week. Mmmm, tea.

The second person is a character I've had for years. I randomly decided while I was making this that she enjoys coffee.

And the guy on the bottom is the old man from RBY. You know the one.
I have poor survival instincts. Why buy food when you can buy t-shirts???

The best part about not having many followers is that nobody misses you when your comic goes on hiatus for three months. Whooo, glass half full!

Anywho, I got back not too long ago from marching in a drum corps, and it's pretty much universal that everyone just looks... better at the end of the summer. Being in excellent shape will do that for you.

That being said, and even though I have had several random friends comment on my change in appearance, I still feel a whole lot like panel 4 right now for posting this.
Expectations: A webcomic artist will put effort into her art.
Reality: She doesn't.

On the other hand, the banner looks nicer now.
This has too many words. Oh well!

Yeah, the joke at the end is very self-aware, but I'm referring to more comics than just my own....

Anywho, if you don't already, you should check out all the other comics I referenced because they're cool.
xkcd
VG Cats
Sinfest
Basic Instructions
Girl Genius
Questionable Content

I have had this exact conversation with more than one person. It's one of three reactions. The other two are sighing with disappointment and snickering.

Occasionally people congratulate me, but it's only after they've done one of the other three things.

For those of you who aren't as savvy with American college football, Ohio State and the University of Michigan have a 100+ year old football rivalry that is a pretty big deal for those of us in those two states.
Some comics are born, and others... well, we lose them despite our best intentions. I was thinking about making a series on the comic creation process, but this was really the only idea I had, and besides, comics about making comics have been done before.

This very nearly looked like this, but then I decided that that was too lengthy.

Also, thanks for all the comments, alcnolien. =D

Someone is a wee bit obsessed with Portal 2 (and rightly so!)
Sometimes I look back at my art from as recently as a year ago and wonder how I ever thought it was good. Then I realize that a year from now I'll probably be thinking the same thing about something I made last week.

Actually, the worst part isn't reality. The worst part is about half a mile in when my lungs go, "hey, remember when you had asthma? Good times. I think we should relive them!"

One of the more annoying assessments in IB is the one you have to do for your English (or whatever your first language is) class. You're given 40 lines from either a play or a novel, and have 20 minutes to read and annotate it before talking about it for at least 10 minutes. You have no idea what excerpt you're going to get (though they've all been covered in class so you're not completely clueless) and everything you say is recorded. By some miracle I got the poem I actually wanted... then this happened, more or less verbatim.

Tl;dr.

In other news, I'm not dead. I have ideas for comics, but I lack the motivation to draw them. As you can see, the art here is less than stellar. Sorry 'bout that.

In other other news, I'll be dead June through August, and probably in part of May, too.

MoCCA?
I like how the cracks run through every frame. A subtle touch, but a nice one.

I do the exact same thing! I always thought it was because I had played too much Sly Cooper, but I guess I'm not alone after all.
