Games: a short(ish) arc: #14

Untitled14

Jessi probably would’ve used a contraction, but that’s such a small enough thing that I really don’t care.

To be quite honest, this strip and the next one were the causes of the massive sources or art block. They killed my attempts to rebuild my buffer!

I mean, I joke a little bit, but to be quite honest I had very little Idea how to approach it? The perspective, the lighting. In other programs I had learned to do stuff like this, but I either didn’t have access to those ones anymore/forgotten what I did.

So, I was worried. Even more than that, I was so stressed out by how to do this one, that it impacted all the other arcs and projects and future strips I was going to do. Like, I have very little of the things I had planned after this strip even started.

But you know what? Drawing the pieces I did in the mean time, and finally drawing this one? They aren’t perfect, no. But I do think they are showing my continuation to do these things improves my skill.

That’s what transitioning has been all about, in some ways. I can acknowledge I need to improve, and get better, but still see where I have come from.

And with Jessi’s comment, something I had planned on being said since my initial inception of this arc, this whole thing comes right back around.

Funny how that works, huh?

Distraction!

Dancing final (1)

A sequel post to the “out of order” one.

We should have the normal arc back up for Wednesday?

Hope this will tide you over for a while, it’s not something I would normally do.

Thank you for your patience!

Love,

Stoodmuffin!

(Yeah I totally made this while listening to the Bayonetta OST)

 

Out of Order!

Out of order

I should have put this out two days ago, when my buffer actually ended. However, I am working on stuff, so I just wanted to let interested parties know this was a little flub on my part, and we will be back to finishing the arc shortly.

Ironically, I had major art block because I had a lot I wanted to do, and wasn’t sure were to start (or how!) I may need a day or two to re-calibrate, but then everything should be going as scheduled (or to be scheduled), soon.

See you soon! Love, Stoodmuffin

HEY. It’s JESSI! Like Suzie, they are returning character! From older comics! Neat, right? Though, I am changing some stuff about them, which I will being this up more so later. Right now, gaming drama.

Look at that background! Sexy, right? Yes, I still need to practice, and yes carpets suck. But I like it! It was so hard to make that carpet work the way I wanted but eh. Close enough.

Oop, look likes I got stuck in my head for the few past updates. Sometimes you need to snap back to reality! Well, there you go. Ha ha.

Sometimes, things get too much before we deal with it healthily. And then, well. Yeah, that’s not super fun, huh?
Even then, sometimes things that aren’t very big can pile up into a lot of stress. If people who have as good lives as I or others do can get overloaded, then the amount of stress out there for those struggling more/differently is a HUGE deal. And our society is bad at dealing with not only letting people fall through the cracks, but admitting that it does or that it was built on that. So, be careful, folks. And know that you are loved!

Definitely some warnings for language and things in this one.

Untitled 6_6

This one is a little more… intense. You know when things build up after a while, you know? This one has a lot more toxic, serious messages in it. I bleep things out for the most part, but maybe there should be some warning.

Looks like l’il is getting a little more annoyed with this trend.
