Hey guys!

We had a pretty good weekend, had a great dinner with the in-laws and it was nice to go out and see them. I spent a lot of time playing Hide n Seek inside the house with the two boys. Being over 6 feet tall, it's not easy to hide inside a house. Fortunately, the house is designed in such a way that by foregoing a hiding place and just listening, I was able to get behind them after they went out, and take their counting place (or something in that room) as my hiding place... It was amusing, but I think we used up all the reasonable spots... Some good creativity all around for places to hide ;)

I also woke up this morning to see that my email had sent out many emails to people. If you got one, I apologize :/ I figured I would run a virus scan before we went out, came home to a blue screen and it wouldn't load to windows. Thankfully, I managed to coerce the bios and such in such a way that I was able to pull it off. Need to redo the virus scan now with more monitoring though. On the bright side, even if my computer dies, it just means that I finish the comic on June's computer instead. So fear not, TOGM will continue to be updated at the appropriate times.

We've been doing it since October and still maanaged every planned update. It's important to me to do our best to keep on top of the update schedule, if for no other reason than to eliminate the "Hmmm, I wonder if they've updated.." question that I have sometimes for comics that don't update with any schedule.

Hope you guys have a good week, see you on Thursday!

Hey people ! Just checking in here briefly to say hello. I'm really tired and have a headache so I think I will write my update in the morning after a good sleep. See you then!

Her head looks awfully small in that last panel... :S
But who am I to question cartoon zombie physics?

And Magravan, though it may be difficult to hide at +6' tall, you can rest assured that we tall people will always be awesome. ;)

Now that you mention it, the head is a bit small... zombie puppet replacement technique? :D

We'll go with 'Artistic License' ;) Ooh ooh, or 'Dramatic Effect'? :P

And I agree, Marshmallow, I guess you can't expect to reach things on the top shelf AND fit conveniently into a cupboard :D

As the artist, I can confirm that Beth was using the "Myspace angles" and getting it horribly backwards.

Hey John! Ask her what color shirt she's wearing! That might shed some light on the green color blindness theory. :)
Skrael (I'm the artist)
Lunaroki: That might be a great idea.:) I wonder if it has to do with those neon green contacts that she is wearing?
Magravan edit delete reply
Bonus points if he convinces her to take off the shirt in order to look at it? :)

I miss you <3

I assumed her head looked smaller because her hair was falling around her face? :p

I just want to say... this comic has the BEST handnatomy (and feets too!) I have ever seen. Mad props are requisite!
Barrahir (Guest) edit delete reply
Well most of us agree that the anatomy in this comic is one of the best there are, so yeah :D

And she was always telling me that she's not very good at drawing in this style... *jealous*
Skrael (I'm the artist)
Well thanks guys *blush* I consider my art ability a work in progress.. I'm always trying to improve my techniques and abilities. I enjoy the challenge. :)

I second (or third) the praise for you hand anatomy, and anatomy in general. Nice work!

Thanks, Guy!
