Comment on 041 Involving Minimal Pus of Neko the Kitty

Incidentally there's a Bummy in this one, we're still doing that it's just not in every strip because it requires a complicated background or there's no point doing it, and we're going greyscale in the first place because I have less time these days. I actually have a bit of a buffer built up in the line art for the first time in god knows how long. I'm working on economy of line but I'll do Bummy whenever there's a sufficiently detailed background to hide him in.

I think the main problem with 'edible goo' as a product description is that it's just way too vague, but then again I don't think I ever actually state in the script that she's eating yoghurt. It's strongly implied but never actually stated, the label says Moo! and there's a picture of a cow, make of that what you will.

I get a terrible anxiety whenever I come to something that's spelled differently in American English. I'm writing in Hibernian English, which is what the dialect spoken in Ireland is called, but am aware most of the audience is American. It doesn't come up too often, but whenever I come across a word that's spelled differently in American English I become very aware of it. Longtime readers will remember Alice eating a peanut butter and banana sandwich a while back because I couldn't decide between jelly and jam.

Anyway, pet peeve.

Oh man we're REAL far down on Top Web Comics! I don't have an incentive done but that just won't do. I'm gonna go draw the fattest goddamn rabbit I can and that'll be the incentive when it's done

I'm getting used to drawing Alice again, been trying to simplify her lines a bit, so more as it develops.

So the cocaine thing is a bit of an in-joke. Luna was very tiny when we found her, so we got her kitten food so she'd grow up big and strong. Ollie LOVED the kitten food, and would steal it every chance she got. She got quite pudgy which is really noticeable on a cat as small as Ollie, and that's when The Voice started.

Paige had this conversation with Ollie where Ollie was insisting she wasn't fat, but in the fattest-sounding voice Paige can do. It's kind of a Cartman/Homer Simpson/Jabba the Hutt with a hint of an Elvis impression thrown in. And it stuck.

Somewhere along the way she started demanding cocaine and insisting to be buttered, and calling everyone Momma. It works for Ollie but we usually don't do it around other people because everyone does it but it makes you look mental.

I'm just going to upload this early and call it a night, vote incentive's still Gumball and Darwin!

So The Donald is installing the Legion of Evil into top white house positions, and doesn't think it's important that he has money tied up in the Dakota Pipeline. It's actually kind of uncanny how much the 80s got right about the dystopian future. I think Robocop's basically happening, then that's going to lead into Judge Dredd (possibly by way of Mad Max, though that could just be what happens in Australia) and, ultimately, Star Trek. It's gonna be a long road getting from here to there, though.

Today's vote incentive is Gumball and Darwin from The Amazing World of Gumball, which is just a really solid cartoon.

I actually have a really solid story idea now
Comment on 035 One Day of Neko the Kitty
NtKGar, November 23rd, 2016, 6:37 pm
I'm happy with how the dialogue came out in this one.

Paige is over visiting her family for thanksgiving. I couldn't get the time off so I'm at home minding the cats, which is fine because Aleister needs to be given his drugs, and his little incident cost a couple of hundred at the vet anyway so staying home was a good call on a number of fronts. Paige and her parents and sister are all meeting up at their grandparents house, I think there's an aunt and some other family coming too so it's a whole big thing. I reckon it's a better story if it's all about the women of the family.

Paige is quite a good storyteller, so this week will start coming out in little bits as she remembers them for a couple of months. Her family are all mad, so there's gonna be some good ones. It's all more or less the same kind of madness; I want to be told about what kind of harmony that builds to without the fear of being the cuckoo bird in the shithouse factory.

Which kinda happened to Paige five years ago when she dropped me over to my parents house on christmas and I casually invited her in to say happy christmas to my gran, on what would turn out to be her last. Didn't even occur to me that she might not have expected ALL the cars parked along the road to have deposited Molloys and food and wine into the living room of, granted, the sweet old lady she had been expecting. This is about half ten, eleven in the morning and we weren't even dating at the time.

Paige remembers it with fond horror. She got to meet my gran though, and made a better impression than she had supposed, so I'm thankful for that

For the record I *have* met Paige's family, grandparents and all. I'm just not in the sequel to that visit and the backstory for why would be rightfully cut from the script because it's boring as shit.

Actually, on a tangent, can anyone recommend some films with really good directors commentary on the DVD? I mostly stream movies, but I like hearing artists talk about the challenges and practicalities of their craft. Some of them are just really boring though so it's kind of a crapshoot; recommendations?
Comment on 034 Sonic Weapons of Neko the Kitty

@Niflare: I've been trying to move away from all the women having the same body type. Somewhere along the way I decided Alice needed to have a big ass, and I made her a little softer overall, Ellen's lines have always been more angular so I want to play on that. I'm actually pretty rusty with the human cast at this point, I'm seeing a bunch of anatomy errors in this one.

This is why the next strip is delayed by the way, I'm having a bit of a tough time with the full-body poses, which is exactly why I'm drawing them.

@8th Grade Student: So far there are 1,282 pages. If you click on the 'archive' link up at the top (on the right underneath the banner) you can see the number on each comic. I kind of deliberately mess around with numerical order from about 400 or so, so the number ON a strip doesn't necessarily correlate to the number OF the strip as you're counting from the beginning, if you catch my meaning.

Basically, figuring out how many pages are in each book of Neko the Kitty seems like exactly the kind of math problem I should leave it to an eighth grade student to solve for themselves, and I've made it hard for you on purpose.

P.S. There's a point where the external and internal numbering systems come back into sync, so you can ignore the internal numbering system entirely to make the project simpler. The computer's count is more accurate than mine for cataloguing purposes.

P.S.S. A page charting the juggling act going on there would probably kick you up a grade though.

P.S.S. Enterprise. It has taken fourteen years for this gag to pay off! :D
