Funny thing is, when you draw cartoons in class, people are always asking, "Can you draw me please!?. Oh can you draw my girlfriend and her dog?!" Well I'll be honest and I'll say this right now. I suck at details. I would absolutely snap if I had to draw another damn still-life of a bowl of fruit again. Kinda weird coming from a guy that wants to be an Animater/Graphic Novelist but hey seriously, no more bowls of fruit.

So anyway, I did end up drawing my friends and instructors in the next few strips. I'm pretty happy with it and Charles Shields (The old guy in the comic) just loves it.

And for the record, Charles does set things on fire, as well as your soul.

As for the technical commentary, I'm still working out the kinks for the color palettes as well as ditching outlined backgrounds. I'm currently trying to find time to do backgrounds in Painter X and give it a more cartoon feel. Think Venture Bros, but Venture Bros is way too awesome to even try. LOL

Would have been even better if he commented on it reminding him of a nazi prison camp, then did a drink then said something nice haha.

WAAAHAHA! Awesome man, on so many levels!
Level 1: It's great lookin'! Great style! Well laid out!
Level 2: It's funny if you don't know Charles.
Level 3: It's ABSOLUTELY HI-LARIOUS if you DO know Charles!
Level 4: Looks exactly like GD class.
and Level 5: Points out that it's great to have another great cartoonist in Fresno! Is it safe to assume that you took over the comics in the Collegian? Hope so! These are great! Keep in touch! *watch!*
