The weird little band from last year’s Walpurgisnacht strip has decided to invade Bunny Day.
Here’s their bassist, Kyra.

Hee!
I don’t use word balloons in my comics, so I started putting characters’ thoughts in parentheses, and I don’t expect it’s clear to people.
On the other hand, my last strip is all internal monologue, and I just did it as text instead of putting everything in parentheses. And I think that’s probably for the best.
Since I have a certain visual approach established, I’m trying really hard to maintain it, and not to put speech bubbles and thought bubbles in my comics, even though it makes certain things harder to convey.

This is based on an actual experience of mine. I later found out the dog was really dying.

(Totally using Loren for one of my most autobio-based strips! Because a) it was quicker to render his haircut than mine; b) Loren does not get enough use in the strip; c) I am trying to actually use my characters instead of sticking myself in the strips.)

Guess who’s going to get a Comix Warriors entry done only on the last day again?
I wasn’t entirely sure if I was even going to do this week’s challenge. I’m supposedly going to do something for United Webcomics’ “Sexy Bunny Day,” so I was going to be busy working on that. And then, meaning to work on both, somehow I spent a lot of time on stuff that ended up being not really either.
If I’m going to keep sticking myself in the comics, maybe I need some less time-intensive hair. Maybe I’ll have the next comic feature Loren; he has nicely short hair.

This was going to be a Sexy Bunny Day costume, but it kind of became its own thing. I’m calling it “Spring Beauty.”

I think LaFaonne may keep this hairstyle for a while.

Is it Society6 or Søciety6?

I haven’t been linking to my Søciety6 account because I only have the one design, and it didn’t seem like there was much point. But if you want “Glassfade” as a print, canvas, mug, laptop case, iPad case or skin, or rug—rug? I don’t remember rugs, I guess that’s new?—you have just a day to get free shipping, only by following this link.

Expires midnight California time. Wait, is that 9 hours from now or 33?

comixwarriors:

Lighting’s a little bit a mess, Bea wanders in and out of what light there is, and I’m posting a submission at the eleventh hour, again.
Oh, well. All-new characters Bea Blaze & Desmond Pennycooke, a.k.a. guitar duo Aggronomy.
Rosalea and Misha are of course the keyboardist and guitarist of the to-date unnamed rock band that has shown up in the strip a couple of times. (They are in fact known by many names, such as, “Dev’s old band without Dev.”)
And I finally had to give my characters’ hometown a name. It’s “Thamnopolis” now, but it could have ended up “Fosterville” or “Brush City.”

Comic! :) Comic.
Bunny Day is coming.

You know how I said I was sick of doing Comix Warriors challenges at the last minute?

Well, it looks like I’ll be lucky to get this one done on time at all.

At least I have a script and a layout. If I can’t get it done in time, I can just finish it late and post it here.

Meet guitar duo Aggronomy, a.k.a. Desmond Pennycooke and Bea Blaze. I’ve been wanting for a while to populate the wider music scene in my comic’s fictional world, and Comix Warriors gave me an excuse.
The present Comix Warriors challenge is to, “Create 2 new characters and make a comic about them.”
I had a rough idea pretty quickly, and I thought I could get something posted quickly for once. (I’m getting very tired of last-minute entries.) Well, I’m halfway to the deadline, and I still have to customize some props—specifically their guitars—and start rendering. I thought this would be days quicker!
Well, it’s OK. I seem to have a normal pattern now: sculpting and prepping for the first few days, in between working on other stuff that somehow doesn’t become a strip; then rendering and composing a strip on the last day. Maybe my last day can be Sunday or Monday this time, instead of the actual last day of the challenge.
P.S.: Comix Warriors challenges are open to anyone, and normal people just draw a comic instead of trying to build everything in 3D. If you can throw something together for this week’s challenge and submit it before I get finished, well, I dare you to do it!

ComixWarriors had a “childhood memories” challenge.
Ellery’s memory, not mine.

I can tell I’m old; I kept reflexively shifting to the parents’ perspective even though it’s supposed to be Ellery’s childhood memory.
With four new character sculpts and a car, this was a few days of prep and then four hours of quick renders.
