I realize that February is short, but wow. It just seemed to fly by! Now, if we can just get rid of this winter weather, things would be peachy!

So... Text walls! June wanted more text to offset things in case her learning curve for her new tablet was too high...

This one goes back to the conversation they had while they were hanging around in Robert's trophy case... I bet Chad's regretting throwing him out right about now!

In other news, I bought Assassin's Creed 2 for myself. Normally I don't like to spend money on games that the kids can't play as well, and it's definitely not a kid's game. Buuut, I've wanted to play it for over a year now, and it was only $20, so I thought it might be time to get it.

All I have to say is that Happiness = Double Hidden Blades. Best kill so far? Francesco's guards...

I had climbed up higher than I intended to, so I was above them, and jumped down and stabbed two guys. Standing up, I barely hesitated for a second before his arms shot out in either direction and took down the remaining two guards. Francesco's bleating of "Guards? Guards!!" was icing on the cake :D

Anyway, have a great week! Hope to see you back on Thursday!

Well, well well!

I just wanted to say that I got the Cintiq on Friday! I LOVE it. I still can't draw for crap, but I think that I can really improve with this, now.

You might notice that I drew some background for this! Yes, I did! I'll be honest, I was going to just use this one that I traced from Google maps (I'm bad, I know!) but I felt so guilty about it that I drew my own. And I'm proud of em. :)

MatthewJA, EVERY stinkin' time I draw Chad now, I think of that funny Keanu image that you did up. I swear, I am gonna bop you in the stickman nose if Chad starts to resemble Keanu more and more every time I draw him! Grrr! Argggh! And other scary noises and what forth!

Well, I'd better hit post before time runs out!
Before I do, here's a little portrait I whipped up of Beth and John yesterday. I'm seriously thinking of changing the TOGM people up to look like this. What do you think?


EDIT: I fixed John's eyes, as Jrade had mentioned, he looked too girly, and he was right!

It looks great :D
But I still maintain that the arm should be lower. CURSE YOU KRISTY

Also, image
Refresh your memory ;D

PS, I actually rated this comic for a change! THAT'S HOW GOOD IT IS

It looks like you're adjusting to the Cintiq well. What were you using before? Is this your first tablet?
Skrael (I'm the artist)
Thank you Kevin. I was using an Intuos 3 before the upgrade. I am just *terrible* about blind drawing. Ten years of using a tablet, and I never did fully get the hang of it.

This is me answering your comment answering my comment with another comment with a question!
When did he see the picture?
Skrael (I'm the artist)
PS MatthewJA, I thought that the arm looked better lower too, but I think that Kristy knows what she is talking about, and I trust her uber art skills. :)
Skrael (I'm the artist)
MG: I am absolutely SURE that you won't take nearly as long as I did. And that you will surpass me. :)

MJA: When did who seethe picture?

lookin good, and lol butt chin on Chad :P
I like the beth/john sketch, the ears creep me out a lil though. Idk why.
Skrael (I'm the artist)
Are they too .... earie?

*ba-dum-pshhh* ... *hideS*
Kristy edit delete reply

Aww, the "LOL" is gone from the panel. I'll miss it.
Jrade edit delete reply
This is awesome!

The portrait is awesome - two things, though: the ears - they're kind of flat to the camera, I think...I think that's the earie thing about them...only slightly though, and John's moreso than Beth's.

Also, John looks...kind of feminine, especially if you pull a reverse-judge-dredd and cover up his jaw/nose...

I mean, I know I'm no artist myself, so I really shouldn't critique, but...that's I think my first non-positive input in the whole series, so...sorry if I hit any nerves or anything.

The hair is really awesome, though! So is the background! The ears are also awesomely detailed, and
properly too...which is uncommon

...so many koalas...

@Kristy It was lol'ing at me D:

Obviously, they are not very fond of losing their head everything except their head. :P

There are no words to describe how awesome the last panel is. ;)

I am actually ok with Chad resembling Keanu eventually :P I think it would be amusing.

Also, Chad's rage faic is scary as hell! RUN JOHN! RUN!

@MatthewJA - Looks like Chad has longer thicker arms than legs, going for the Popeye and Bluto look? I guess with custom made Zombie parts it is possible, its not like exercising them does any good. Now that would be interesting Beth jacks him up for a replacement and turns him into Chin-hair POS (name escapes me) body.

BWAHAHAHAHHAHAHAA (Thanks for the loan of the Maniacal Laughter Spelling)

lol I'm glad to see there are more people with such an awsome sense of awful humor like me.

@MatthewJA - I have to assume you laughed without actually reading the strip :) You saw it up until she got banned :/ And thank you for rating it ;P

@Iblisor - I think that Chad's self-preservation instincts are fairly well intact :D

@Kevin - June answered you :D

@MatthewJA - Chad saw the picture in the diner.

@greengirl77 - He's gone to SUPER BUM CHIN!

@Kristy - The backgrounds are laughing at you from behind the figures now. They're just more deceptive :D

@Jrade - It's constructive criticism... It just means you haven't given up on her ;)

@MatthewJA - Makes sense :)

@ranger_brian_new - Losing one's body is certainly not the highlight of any of their lives :)

@Guest - I don't think that Chad will resemble Keanu.. June likes Keanu, and I don't think she's a very big fan of Chad.

@Ice the frosty cat - The funny part is, the text doesn't even .. make him all that Rage-y...

@Barra - Must have had a bad experience at their expense..

@Jacob Gristwood - I hear RRRAAAAAAAAAAAGGGE is all the rage these days.

@Jamming - I think that Chad without the XL15 would be ... weird looking.

@D_Man - Yeah, that was pretty bad... :D

Hey... is it just me, or do you miss a letter in the sixth chat bubble? shouldnt it be *A* car?
CarlRedifi edit delete reply
OOPSIE! i see now that you can say both, in return, i guess a 5 rating is in place, because this comic is awesome...

I'm just glad I didn't mess up :D (Again...)

blagh. sick. test tommorow. and no voice. YAY TOGM! seriously, even with my 4th wall breaking powers i'd be afraid to fight rageface chad. course i could just break the 4th wall of halo for a rocket launcher, or mario for a fire flower, or mushroom GO for the chainless. yea... run chad down with the chainless, that's my new plan.

seriously though great work and lulz at karl being all "why we wastin timez!"
Jamming edit delete reply
@ Magravan - Of course it would look ridiculous that's the point. Chad is all about body image (it appears) and if he continues to mess with Beth it would be a good way to get him to back off, without killing him. (maybe even an RZ body type)

Magravan edit delete reply
@model S - Is.. is it a vocal music test? Good luck anyway! As for the Chainless, it's a pretty cool ship, but Chad looks like he could take it down with his bum chin :D

@Jamming - Well, I do have plans regarding Chad and his treatment of others, but I'm not sure if you'll enjoy the build up and the time until it gets dealt with...
Jamming edit delete reply
OK, I will wait and see.
model S (Guest) edit delete reply
i don't think a cleft could beat the chainless, unless it was the iron cleft bros from rank 10 of the glitz pit in paper mario thousand year door, those guys are literally invincible!but one day i shall guest comic out and awsome comic of model S obliterating chad with his 4th wall bustin rage! and then making out with beth much to tom's dismay.

but no it's a maths test, do not want....

also oh god this post makes me sound like a complete NERD -braces self for bullies and chad who prolly hate me more than i hate him-
redder edit delete reply
gotta say im liking the look in the last frame lol
Magravan edit delete reply
@Jamming - I'm glad to hear that... It might not be for a long while though... Not even sure if it is going to be within the next book...

@model S - I don't know, that looks like a pretty crazy strong bum chin... How did the test go?

@redder - Glad to hear it :D
Jamming edit delete reply
So Magraven, want to earn $20 bucks for a little script adjustment?

Magravan edit delete reply
Haha :) That would be a pretty cheap selling out ;)
model S (Guest) edit delete reply
i skipped class today on account of excessive barfing (I BLAME CHAD AND HIS BUMCHIN!!))
Magravan edit delete reply
You see what happens when you mess with our fourth wall? Chad finds you, and he does things...
model S (Guest) edit delete reply
haha oh James, chad couldn't defeat me, i have something he could never possess. something even his XL15 cannot defeat. i have PINK VYNAL PANTS! it's the source of my power you know.
Kata edit delete reply
Yay I FINALLY read through them all :D

But this means...gasp...that I have to wait(ew) for more :(
Magravan edit delete reply
@model S - Pink vinyl pants ... that you wear? Again Chad's bum chin? It would be epic, I'll give you that...

@Kata - Fortunately not for long :D Next update should be up soon.. After that, yeah.. waiting.. :)
