My birthday’s tomorrow (August 4th)! If you wanted to get me something, the best gift you can give is by becoming a Defender or renewing your Defender membership! Since before Kickstarter and Patreon existed, you guys were keeping this comic a-running and there’s nothing I’d rather do! Except maybe nap. And you guys can’t buy me a nap. So instead become a defender! And THANKS! Happy b-day to me!
Intervention6 is just TWO WEEKS AWAY! August 14-16, at the Hilton Washington DC/Rockville! I’ve got two panels Saturday morning (at 10 and 11!) and my eldest daughter Leah will be with me selling doodles and doing commissions and raking in the dough like she did last intervention! I hope you guys can come by and us!
We STILL seem to have a RANDOM ARCHIVE GLITCH where clicking on the next comic will take you to the next comic page, but oddly display a comic from a totally different date. Hitting Refresh sometimes helps. We're working on it!
Comic for Monday 04/26/10
Welcome to “Portraits Week”! I’ve been playing around with Photoshop painting over the last few weeks and have decided to run some of my projects this week while I gear up to work on the next Sluggy Freelance book. This Sasha portrait is my second attempt. You’ll see my first attempt on Friday. I 'painted' on top of a pencil sketch that I ran on the site but I don’t have the link to that sketch handy. I hope someone will put the link in the reactions forums.
Comic for Tuesday 04/27/10
This is my third attempt at Photoshop painting. I think this came out better than the Sasha portrait, but something about the squareness of the head makes Aylee less feminine than I had wanted. I also think the glowing eyes could have been handled in a more sophisticated way. Still, every time I do one of these, I'm learning more about the painting process. And that's worth the journey no matter the results. Again, this was from a pencil sketch somewhere on the site, and I hope someone will put the link in the reactions forums.
