I had open a file with Rosalea, and it’s been a while, and I was changing her hairstyle, and at one point, I thought, just how different are she and Teresa, physically? I mean, they’re kind of similar builds, both at least vaguely Afro-Hispanic, and I don’t think I’ve ever had them in the same scene, nor even thought about it.

OK, so. Huh. They don’t actually look alike, that’s good. But I was actually a little surprised at the specific ways in which they look different. As I said, it’s been a while.

I like the contrasting values on this outfit. It reminds me of a superhero costume or something.

The bodysuit doesn't have the same material settings as on yesterday's render. This version is not necessarily final, either.

Of course Rosalea’s imaginary son would be dating the other Rosalea.

"Fear" challenge for Comix Warriors.

This one is subtle, I guess.

I’m not saying I regret buying it, but, you know, there’s a reason I don’t have characters called Mike and Vicki. Although I do have a Steff, and Misha’s name is a form of Michael….

Whatever. This is a silly one.

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.

They say if you live with someone for a long time, you start to look like each other. That has not been my experience.

If you don’t get it, ask someone who was alive in the 1970’s, I guess.
No, that is not Marigold Farmer.
Another Comix Warriors submission.

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!

Yeah, I should render and post something, even if it's not a comic.
I just noticed after I deleted the scene that the lighting on this is awful. But I've deleted the scene and I'm not doing it again.

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