I’m really happy with how this shot came out. Honestly, a lot of the hard work for this scene was actually done for Easter 2013. But I think this has much better lighting. And I have learned some things since then.

I did a music meme on Tumblr, so I rendered this image for it.

Happy New Year!

OK, deep breath–featuring two crows, Ellery, Malcolm, Zipporah, Sandrine, Arlo, Jessi, Misha, Steff, Sylvio, Sandrine again, Ellery again, Domingo (haven’t seen him in a while), Jeannette, and LaFaonne.

It’s funny. As long as I’ve been doing this I don’t think I’ve ever published a strip that mentions that Jeannette and LaFaonne have been best friends at least since high school. I knew this even before I designed Elaine.

I need to get more work done, huh?

Steff joining the band.

Steff’s sunburst bass modeled by Music2u4u. Studley’s drums from the Rockstage by Richabri, I think. Everyone else’s instruments are off panel.

I do like the album Some Nights, and “We Are Young" is a fun song (as well as a song by fun.), but stepping back and looking at it, the refrain on "We Are Young" is a little silly.

This, given it’s supposed to be my entry for United Webcomics’ August 1 swimsuit event, is very late, but hey, it’s still Thursday morning in California, right?

And it was supposed to be twice as big! I had the dialogue “written" in my head days ago, but the actual posing and rendering takes a while, and I procrastinated too much (also fell asleep a couple of times), and ended up posting it only half done.

Amy Letts just put one of my strips from last week up on the United Webcomics page, so I guess it’s OK. I just feel like I’m getting later and later with my posts.

The way I do things is faster than actually hand-painting it to that quality. It’s faster and more consistent than hand-inking it (probably). It’s nowhere near as fast as just writing. It’s frustrating how slow it can be.

August 5: Well, it's another two days later, but here's the whole thing:

For what was supposed to be a little joke and a quick digression, this laid me low. Five figures and nighttime lighting. But mostly I was not working on it, and psyching myself out, much more than I was working on it.

I’m sorry. I lost focus, and I started talking myself into quitting again.

Saturday, I woke up from a dream (about a rock band!) feeling inspired, and tried to get back to work. Instead of just shooting the second line, I tried shooting the top line with different lighting. I’m not used to nighttime lighting. It took over two hours for one of the shots, much of that being Rosalea’s hair, not that anyone would notice. Then I had other things asking to be done, so I didn’t get finished.

But I got it finished now, two days after I said, and four days late overall!

The band are playing the concert Elaine was talking about in the last strip. I probably should exposit better. Maybe captions or something.
