Chapter Two – 9, 10
Edit: Page redone Sept 2, 2014. Original page can be viewed here. Why was it redone? I painted it on a tiny tablet on a crappy computer and well, it was rushed, and I was never happy with the result. A couple of lines of dialogue were changed/added.
The comic of–well–a couple of weeks ago, but I’ve fallen a bit behind–is The Sundown Boys! I’ll be honest, I have not yet had the opportunity to read through this entire comic, so here’s some of the blurb.
“Everything changes after a chance encounter with a girl from Leon’s past. Suddenly, the brothers find themselves swept up in a major conspiracy which will reveal not only a startling secret about the brothers’ abilities, but also long-kept secrets from within the DeSaule Organization itself.
These secrets may call into question what the brothers think they’re fighting for – and whom they should fight against.”
What I have read suggests a bit of a “rival gang” sort of comic set in a dystopian future. I’m a little envious of the crisp art, seriously, I am way into this kind of thing–I just have been short on time. You may have seen it over there in my adbar! And clicked it and read it already! If you haven’t clicked it because Project Wonderful ad on my site, well, have at it, you guys. I might suck at updating over the holiday season but you can always read other people’s comics while waiting!
Pages are a little rushed… sorry about that, but it’s getting late and I’m having trouble painting on this computer with the tiny tablet… frankly, I’ve probably lost the only human friend I had (past tense) over this fucking comic, so whatever. It’s apparently inappropriate for a comic creator to use their news as a blog, so I guess I can’t even cuss about it here. The good news is, turns out I can actually make a comic page in decent time on my laptop though, even though it’s ancient and horrible for shading on, so I don’t know what I’ll do once this scene ends and I have to make new resources. The bad news is, well, I don’t have my comic lettering font on here, noooooooooo, so it’s myraid as a filler font for now. I will be returning to the old font regardless of whether or not people like this one better, because I like my personal font better. I’ll try sneak in a page or two on Friday or Saturday, might miss the next because traveling again.
To everyone: CRAPPY FANART IS ALWAYS WELCOME SHUT UP I DON’T CARE IF MY ART IS BETTER THAN YOU THINK YOURS IS.
Also, I don’t usually have issues with drinking wine. (shrugs) That’s why it came as a surprise. I regularly have a glass of wine with a meal, and I didn’t really drink any more than I usually would have. Plus, this wasn’t even a fresh, unusual bottle–I’d had a glass or two out of it already and hadn’t been that thrown off my tracks. Weirdness. Now, what I can’t drink is rye and whiskeys, that stuff knocks me out faster than you can say ‘whiskey sour’.
Tasty, but yikes–I’ve only ever been drunk enough a couple of times to have it effect my typing, and once was from ONE whiskey+coke. One. One. Shot. I avoid that stuff.
Auron: You’re quite right, it is bonus update time! Or, well, catch-up update time. I made this update two pages just for you. :D AND EVERYONE ELSE. But especially you.
Danny: I am trying to catch up on my sleep! I think I have succeeded. I’m not sure if that’s for the better or for the worse. I’m glad to hear you’ve made it through uni part one! I guess it’s almost time for… PART TWO. Woooooooo.
As for your tale about PE, yeah, that sounds about like how cold I was at that point. The cold feels hot and makes you tingle, the hot water makes you BURN. I have vague memories of reading in a book when I was young about someone’s ears being so frozen that if you tapped them they would literally crack. That horrified me forever. I always cover my ears in the cold. D:
By the way, it’s hit -35 Celsius around these parts. :D We couldn’t do PE in that, we would probably literally die. At least, I would. Heck, I’d literally die over any kind of exertion in that weather. That’s inside weather.
GeneseePaws: All right, so, the cable works just fine and dandy. The cable I wanted because the cable for the monitor was buggered. I had some grand plans of getting a splitter, but apparently that’ll make both monitors display the same thing. I even managed to get my onboard graphics card working again by poking around in the bios–apparently it WAS disabled, whatdoyaknow–except, now it’s displaying only a squashed quarter of my screen, refusing to alter the resolution, and occasionally it goes–I can only describe it as “ballistic”. Have you ever had a camera that started doing a pink blurring thing whenever you took a picture? It’s kind of like that. Switching around the cables and whacking it doesn’t help. I’m pretty sure it’s impossible to reseat the integrated-into-the-motherboard-graphics, which leads me to the logical and dreadful conclusion: my motherboard is probably on its last three legs. I don’t know, how many legs does a motherboard have? At any rate, the only thing I need to make my rig work is rebuilding it. Let’s be fair, I don’t have a high end computer; it was nice when it was built… uhhh… 6 years ago? I have a few moneys, not a lot, so if I buy myself a CPU/motherboard, I can technically scavenge the old computer for a power supply and the case and I’ve been amassing pieces ever since. Just, y’know, if I build this thing I want more RAM. But I do technically have everything I need except for the CPU and motherboard that I would need to build a new machine.
I have successfully got my laptop to a state where I can do art on it, even if it’s slower. (Though for some reason the inking is smoother, who’da’thunk?) So don’t worry yourself senseless over my computer problems, just enjoy the art!
As for the upside down hug, well, the whole point of it was that it didn’t really make sense to Leawyn. Maera isn’t a major character, just a spot of light antagonism right now. The hug was mostly to indicate that it’s not serious at this point. She means well.
At this moment, I am in fact too stressed for rum.
nordstrom promo code: Odd, my spam catcher usually catches you guys… anyway, my blog cost 0 pennies. I made it myself. If you are SERIOUSLY a real person spamming my site who wants to set up wordpress, I’ll set it up for an ugly penny. Not even a pretty one.
