I’m not dead after all. I’ve been flaking on more than just art the last week.

I have three other things I want to be doing right this minute, but I don’t want to go several days without posting art again. So, a quick selfie.

Cut for exposed breasts. )

This is an odd strip, but this thing was bothering me. TV Tropes has an analysis page on the trope “Boobs of Steel,” where a strong woman (especially in comics and animation) is also drawn with large breasts. But I’ve noticed that some people don’t seem to understand the difference in real life.

I’m not dead. Sorry for not posting anything for about a week. Partly I’m distracted by other things. But somehow I’ve been getting weirdly blocked when it comes to actually posing figures in scenes; this has been a problem for a while now. It makes it hard to do anything like a comic.

Hot weather and green growing things.

A tiny bit of animation.

I stand with Planned Parenthood

Oh, is that today? I just happened to have this pink suit lying around.

I look at this and wonder, not for the first time, if I should add some bulk to the arms of my cartoon avatar.

This is, like most of what I post anymore, a super lazy daily shot. This is the same outfit & almost the same pose as I had for my Thanksgiving comic over a year ago. I actually was starting to post it and realised I still had the “autumny” makeup on. …I decided at least to change that.

I was a little disappointed with this and didn't post it several days ago. But I'm posting it today because I haven't been getting much work done and thought this was probably better than what I did render today.

I was going to make these a double exposure but I didn’t like it very much.

I thought Elena was a good, common, pretty name that I’d somehow never used for one of my characters. Oh, yeah, that’s why. Well, the names are different in rhythm and syllable length, so it didn’t occur to me until later.

Characters:
Elena Nicodemo, Elaine Spratt, & the artist

I have generally kept cartoon Nia’s hair in twists or braids to avoid giving it a definite texture. A few years ago I tried giving my cartoon self a very straight hairstyle; I didn’t like it as much as I expected.

I think this type hair more blatantly tips my avatar’s ethnic coding away from “Mediterranean” & toward “West Indian,” but I guess the twists did that anyway.

Today I played with this lighting setup on different figures.

"If you can't tell, you're a dumb liberal."
"I mean, come on, Pocahontas is a Disney Princess."
"That was a dumb movie."
"Canonically, the most beautiful of the Disney Princesses."
"What?"
"Yup."
"OK, one, that's crazy, and two, you're missing the point."
"Am I? What's wrong with being Pocahontas?"
"It's not the movie!"
"You have something against Indians?"

I had an idea for a ‘quick’ strip, but pretty late. I’m pushing it back to the 13th. The first panel may look something like this.

Yes, I am trying to post daily again. No, I don't know for certain what if anything I will have posted for VDSD.

Mulling...

I went ahead and joined this year's VDSD anyway. February 10th is the last day to sign up. Deadlines are good, right?

What do I defy?
I guess I defy the man in the penthouse who thinks a raised middle finger is justification to beat somebody up.
