Will NEVER get tired of drawing Mr. Harper, my favorite secondary character.

Made a doozie of a blunder in the first panel with my markers, but in trying to fix the mistake I think the interior looks even dirtier and gloomier and mroe accurate than it had originally been.

Page title derivative and cliche, but With a Little Help From My Friends has come on as I'm writing this post, and you can't fight good timing.



TEN YEAR-VERSARY POST TIME

TOP TEN FAVORITE LOUD ERA SCENES

#9: Aggie and Tony's bet. (link)



Length: 2 pages, 3 pages

Why it's #9: I like the way this whole interaction unfolds, particularly the second half of the scene, which picks up here. I think you get a good sense of Aggie and Tony's relationship and their closeness while still remaining at arm's length from each other. Tony's look of dismay after the reveal on the last page is my favorite snapshot within the vignette.



I also don't think the merging of computer editing and traditional coloring looked bad at all throughout most of the scene. Unfortunately it was miserably time-consuming and inefficient- more so on pages with more curved or complex shapes, pages like these with straight and square lines were more forgiving- (not as bad as pasting dialogue bubbles after tracing them on a window, but still bad), and I think it missed more often than it hit, but looking over these pages now I like the softness it lends to the interior night scene. I may try to dip my toe back into those waters with upcoming scenes I have in the pipeline. This is one of those scenes where when I look back on it, I remember little details and little touches I put into it that are just nice to remember when I think of my old art as being irredeemable shit.


'Til next week!

These guuuuys <333 And the grins of the boys!

I know it doesn't make MUCH difference for Aggie's situation but I have concerned thought about whether it's the same baby in a diaper or three different ones in those panels... o_o

And hahaha, that chess scene made me choke LAUGHING when I first read it and it's still hilarious!

@Oly-RRR: XD XD XD

Luckily (?) it's the same baby, just shitting endlessly and I'm not jealous about the era before disposable diapers....


YAY LOL it's still one of my faves (obviously since it's in the countdown) it's just so silly but also very much fits with something they would do :P :P
