“I’ve barely touched you.”
“You don’t know what having hair feels like. Be gentle.”
“Fine. Where’re you getting the dress?”
“I was thinking of digging something out of that one fallen down dress shop, Anastasia’s something?”
“Didn’t that belong to the host’s family?”
“Yeah. What do you think, flattering or insulting?”
“Probably insulting. Try the other caved in dress place, near Hong’s.”
One time they saved somebody rich (how you do the rich thing in the post-apocalypse is a mystery to Bri) and so some time later they got invited to a party. It was suggested to Bri that full formalwear may be a good idea, as stylish as her bow tie and fighting clothes may be. She could not quite be convinced away from the bow tie, but did dig up an evening gown. Marcus even did her hair. It was a nice evening, really.
The giant ants attacked during a slow song.
Bri and Marcus got the whole thing under control before there could be terribly much damage, thus saving a bunch more rich people. Bri began to understand how Kim Possible always had favors to call in. She kind of showed her class in her response to their defeated adversaries, post-fighting, although the rich people were still pretty grateful.
Marcus gave her the appropriate side eye. “You’re sticking your tongue out at them?”
“They ripped my dress.”
(This is what was supposed to be this week’s post, and the one before it is what was supposed to be last week’s post. I’m dating them both with the dates on which they were meant to be posted. Hey, remember when I said this setup would be more consistent? Yeah, sorry.)
This is the full version of the drawing that was used for my interview in the Register. Also a useful height reference for me. Watch me disregard it in every ensuing drawing and shot for the next several years.
Been doing a character design project around Bri for Design & Illustration. Here’s two of the pieces for it.
Also, the Register article prints today, so, yay for that.
It’s all about the countdown to Christmas now. That’s when work on the cartoon starts for real. There are a few tweaks to be made to the script, but there’s nothing left that needs to be done (besides possibly setting up with a recording studio, but that’s just a maybe) before work on the final product starts. We’re as ready as we’ll ever be for recording and I’m set for animation, now it’s just the wait for the arrival of our tools.
So. This is a status report. Firstly, NaCaScriMo. Subcategory: writing. I’ve accomplished some nice things so far, some development of the characters and little details of their relationships, but I think you’ll like it all better if you get to watch it for yourself in the next few years.
Subcategory: drawing. These are the frames I have done. There are 14 of them. They are of George getting stuck in a door and me having a personal crisis over Bri’s
Secondly, merchandise. Remember that thing I came up with three months ago, with the reduced cost t-shirts? I don’t think it’s gonna work. I’m sorry, guys. The current method doesn’t work at all, I’m at a complete loss as to how else I could do it, and since the t-shirts aren’t something of any special importance to me in general, I’m discontinuing the idea for now. To be absolutely clear, though, THERE ARE STILL SHIRTS and you can still buy them and I’ll still be designing more in the future. The only difference is that they’re available at Skreened, which is, in reality, absolutely no change at all. They’re pretty awesome quality, too. Hopefully, later on in my career, I’ll be able to work out something that satisfies my Thoreau-ian need for independence.
Moments from now:
“SWEET MOTHER OF GOD.”
This was meant to have a lot more to it (it was also meant to be on time) but, well, here.
Oh, and the owl slug’s back. And its design has changed. It may be showing up in animated form sometime soon, which means drawing quite a lot of it, so I figured I may as well introduce the carpel tunnel-lite version now.
I wrote my friend, Megan, from GIA, an illustrated letter recently, and I really, really liked some of the doodles, so here they are, colored.
First, we have some of my friends from GIA: Jake,
And Megan, the recipient of the letter herself.
After that, I rambled sappily about the anniversary of Radio Trees for a bit, so we have everyone’s favorite trio.
Finally, I’m being Dipper Pines from Gravity Falls this year for Halloween, so I drew him/me as him.
More to come, don’t worry. It’s just that there’s quite a lot of measuring going on with that other thing I’m working on.
