Clarabelle really isn't a fan of grim existential-type shit.

Still not 100% pleased with the shading on this page, I did a better job on the next page though it's not 100% where I want it to be.

I'm trying to work faster/more often so I can update more than once a week (at least once every five days or so would be a good goal).

I had some really nice art made by my pals over at the ComicGenesis forums as part of our annual Halloween costume swap. Expect to see them as some filler art in a coming week, they made me smile like thiiiiiiis.

Hope everyone's having a good November so far.

Ahahaha, another page where I relate to Eddie!

Reply mitchellbravo, July 28th, 2014, 6:11 pm

@Oly-RRR: Lmao. That makes me want to draw a picture of Eddie with a green and orange sock/sleeve in his mouth XP

Which, no matter how many times I look at it, I *always* see it as a very leafy carrot at first XD

@mitchellbravo: Hahaha - Troy's bad habits are contagious! XD I keep thinking that I should change this icon because Troy wasn't even in any comics yet... Well, there's this http://fav.me/d7lq9rn but it's just a non-canon thing for fun (that I should continue around autumn when I hopefully get more on top of canon comic progress- ha. ha. many a comic artists say that...) so I don't feel like uploading it with the other shorts. Buuut it's a funny icon and it kinda fits with my weird commentaries so I'll keep it for now - I guess I should just come up with a canon short about Troy because he won't appear in the main storyline for a while.

@Oly-RRR: So glad to have a name to go with the face! And it is a sock after all XD I look forward to his eventual appearance, be it part of the main story or a short.

Hehe! It's nice having an icon that goes along well with a posting style. A few years ago I had an avatar of Tony from one of the chess-playing pages in the prom chapter but I edited him to have tiny laser-looking red eyes and it seemed to suit well :P Before Matthew here, I had for a long time an avatar of Albert, the little army dude with orange hair and large glasses. Having military men in my icons makes me feel like people could theoretically take my posting seriously XD

@mitchellbravo: Ahaha, oh Tony. XD

I usually have Chance on avatars everywhere but he usually looks sad and it doesn't seem to click here. Would be nice to have an avatar from some of the pages I upload here because it's really fun spotting these things when you read comics (a shout-out for Matthew who was suspiciously quiet in the story so far - I expect SOMETHING SINISTER, well, not really but something interesting, characters don't get to be on avatars for no reason!) but I guess me and Troy can spread sock-chewing around Smackjeeves for a bit longer. :]

@Oly-RRR: Well, now you can put the giggling Chance from your page you put up most recently :D Oh man, honestly I just picked Albert and Matthew 'cuz I thought they were cute XD but there *is* some danger on the horizon for them... some of which will be adressed in the comic proper, and some of which will likely go into that side-book I think I'd mentioned ages ago.

I think Troy has the perfect balance of happiness and silliness for the Smackjeeves community. I mean, it's either that or you can change it to a very ambiguously effeminate yaoi boy and gain a bunch of readers who read Cop Story only because they think Chance is going to find solace in a clandestine buttsex committee XD

Reply Oly-RRR, July 28th, 2014, 10:37 pm

@mitchellbravo: Oooh, looking forward to it whenever it happens! :D

Yeah, I was thinking about that panel too! Might fiddle with it later! And hahaha, obviously I'm considering the yaoi option! When in Rome do as Romans do! And Romans clearly seem to be into buttsex so- >:D

...Chance hates us both right now. I keep giggling at "solace in a clandestine buttsex committee". XD

Reply mitchellbravo, July 28th, 2014, 10:55 pm

@Oly-RRR: HAHAHAHA! Poor Chance being the butt of this joke XD XD I always wonder if Loud Era ever got big enough for people to ship non-canon relationships in it, which two guys would get put together in the unavoidable yaoi combo.

Hahahahaha it's a funny concept at all but then you start to picture its logistics and ohmygod poor Chance XD

Reply Oly-RRR, July 29th, 2014, 12:00 am

@mitchellbravo: I'm betting one of them would be Tony but otherwise I have no clue! Though I'm not well-versed in yaoi enough to understand the logic and based on what I see in show fandoms THERE IS NO LOGIC XD "One of these characters has a girlfriend and another has a wife and hates gay people AND the first character's attitude - clearly they were meant to be together!"

The sad part is that this is not the first time Chance faces this joke - http://fav.me/d7kor8j :D (Smackjeeves hates the long tumblr link and I really should go to sleep so I'm linking the DA dump with that doodle instead!)

@Oly-RRR: LOL "One of these characters has a girlfriend and another has a wife and hates gay people AND the first character's attitude - clearly they were meant to be together!" ALL WOMEN ARE BEARDS. NO INTER-SEXUAL RELATIONSHIPS ARE SINCERE. BEEP-BOOP PLEASE SHOW MORE DICKS AND CRYING BOYS BOOP BEEP

Awwwww and now you've got me sympathetic toward Larry with that one in the top row!!! LMAO GAVIN. Poor Chance now has to see each person who's staring and wonder whether each case is out of rudeness or for nefarious purposes...XP

Reply Oly-RRR, July 29th, 2014, 4:48 pm

@mitchellbravo: Hahaha, well spotted! I keep making Larry look like this backstabbing office-ladder-climbing kind of guy (and there's no denying he's quite a jerk) but there will be more to his story later. Much later though.

Those trees are super creepy. And that's coming from someone who lives in a tree.
