friends

well, this is it folks, time for a new beginning for Finn and his upcoming adventures.  today, we say goodbye to a cast of characters that has been with Finn throughout for several years now.  Ace, representing the part of Finn that has the confidence and charisma for any situation.  Remy, the part of Finn that’s in touch with his inner self.  Alex, the academic and knowledgeable aspect of Finn.  Owen, the hands-on, no non-sense kind of man.  and Ivy, the ever-present part of Finn that is vain and selfish.  without them, his friends, Finn would’ve been nothing.  from here on out, we’ll see what the future brings!

give in to the game

let’s all agree on one thing – we don’t like to play games in relationships.  but… what’s considered a game?  how about manipulation?  how about influencing or persuading?  where do you draw the line?  does it depend if the motive is for selfish wants or for the betterment of the relationship?  it just seems that we’re all very quick to agree that playing games  is bad.  but let’s consider what we ourselves do when we want something, from anybody.

artwork wise, i’m sporting my new technique, which involves using thicker outlines for the characters at 0.7mm and thinner lines for the details, at 0.2mm.  and i’m really digging working from models again.  it just looks better!

boost

oh, how far we go sometimes to impress people, especially someone we have a crush on.  from buying new clothes to getting a fresh haircut, what it really does and what’s really important is how it boosts our self-confidence.  i definitely get that little boost whenever i’m wearing a new comic book shirt.  so, is that wrong?  that new stuff and what’s on the outside really makes that much of a difference to how i feel?  i don’t think so.  i don’t think there’s anything wrong with trying to impress people.  but to keep it in perspective, the self-confidence i feel should be naturally derived from being just who i am around those people i love.

i usually try to refrain from making jokes based around anything too niche, but c’mon, who doesn’t know about Magic: The Gathering?!  and i def like the way Ivy’s new shirt turned out with her pose.  i’m starting to think Alex needs a new shirt design though.  any ideas?

chillin on the couch

so what is it guys really look for in a girl?  well, obviously, it depends on the guy.  some guys are all about the looks, some are all about the intellect.  more than likely, there’s a blend of everything that really does it.  and i find it pretty cool how there’s a blend for every type of person, how one thing will work for a person, and not for another.  i guess this is what makes dating so exciting and frustrating.

nothing too deep this week, just a simple gag.  been kinda focused on a contest called Comic Strip Superstar, which called for 12 brand new strips and it was all due on sat.  contest rules states i can’t publish any of them until at least it’s over, so look for them later in december or jan.
