Finaly updating again, sorry folks. At least there's some color for Alex.
First it was the AP's, the the sheep went on strike, demanding higher wages. I offered them a 50% increase, but they turned it down because 50% of nothing is still nothing (who knew sheep could be so smart). Anyway, as you can see from the lack of fluffy backgrounds, they're still on strike, but the comic moves on. I'm thinking of using cotton balls as stand-ins.
so Beau Beau. pronounced like pew pew instead of the correct french pronounciation. Joan isn't serious about wanting to name the horse that, she figires that it's worse that Black Beauty, and Drake will have to let her have her way. She wouldn't be quite so fixated in black Beauty if Drake didn't object to it so strongly. Petty? Yes. Uncalled for? not really.
and yes, when Joan says Beusephalus it's spelled wrong. Her pronounciation is slightly off on it since it's such a weird word.
I should have the next update up in tow days instead of my usual three (trying to make up for lost time).
re practicingarist: you should give it a try, theres nothing to be afraid of...untill the comic takes over your life . but yeah, it's cool to be able to get all of the stories out of your head and share them with folks, and from an artistic point of veiw it's a great way to see how you improve. plus you meet tons of cool people like all of these lovely folks on smackjeeves.
(besides, the art on your avatar is freakin awesome)
Pew Pew? That's not how you usually pronounce it...
I SAW THE ENTIRE MISSION IMPOSSIBLE SERIES THIS WEEKEND! My favorite was probably number 2 just because of the line "This isn't Mission Difficult, Ethan. This is Mission Impossible, difficult should be a walk in the park for you."
Luthar kicks ass. Tom Hanks looks like Beorge W. Bush in one scene. All around, not a bad movie.
Back to the comic, I love the drawing of Alex, his face looks a little sad though, the cape and the horse are cool though. You're getting too good at drawing horses, it's scaring me.
I added the gold corners because Alex created too much color in the middle, so I needed to spread it out a bit. yes he does look sad. it wasn't realy intentional, but with faces that size, you get the line even a bit off when inking and the expression changes. we'll just pretend that an elephant just sat on his tent or something.
I had someone pull that, "Mix Two Good Names to make a bad one" thing on me, when naming our group the girls suggested combining two popular bands, Green Day, and Offspring, to make the name "Green Spring"...
Your Beau Beau reminded me of that...
Haha, nice. Bucephalus sounds like an STD. Haha. That's kinda how my cat was named. We thought he was a girl at first and since he's black with a white stripe down his face, we named him Flower after the skunk in Bambi (which was in fact a boy). Then we found out he was a he and my dad wanted to name him Peppy le Peu (sp), which of course, my mom wouldn't stand for. Put'em together and what'dyou got? Pepper. Pimpest cat name evar.
