I didn’t actually have much time to tweak this from last year (I was actually working up until nearly the last minute on a different one that didn’t pan out), so it’s not too different from before.

Also, it doesn’t help that my cameraperson from last year wasn’t around and I had to enlist Tripod-san, but we’ll see.

I did spot another Dust at MAGFest this year—if anyone happens to have video of us bustin’ a move (Dust-a-Move?) or any other photos, please share!

I love BoJack Horseman, it's such a great (and criminally underappreciated) show. Wanted to make some subtle fan-art for it.

On this, the third birthday of Back to Square One (web comic edition), I have decided to take a bit of a hiatus... Unfortunately, three years of this hasn't gotten any easier, and life has been such that it's pretty much not GOING to get easier. Please also consult the iFAQ if you so desire: http://b2s1.tumblr.com/ifaq

Thank you for reading... I'll be sure to have some other (easier) project on the horizon that will be just as interesting but faster to produce, so keep watching! (especially for feisty felines who enjoy a good headbutting)

Maybe shoulda led with that, Alex. YAY SOCIALIZING AS A SECOND LANGUAGE [or third]

As this is otherwise never going to come up:

Alex is most genetically and racially similar to an African or Indian [as in, from India], culturally more Japanese. Darian is genetically most like a redhead, but treated racially most like a "Mexican" [in contrast to "Latino"] or a "ginger"--though he doesn't have a particular cultural identification. Kotaro is solidly Latino with a dash of Californian, just because I met a dude who seemed to fit the mold so well I couldn't get him out of my head.

This isn't a direct translation of "all squirrels/voles/cougars = such-and-such race" [mostly because I've diversified the cast to avoid too much species overlap and as per the interracial reality of the world they live in] so much as a mental shorthand for keeping their characters accurate to what I originally intended. I'm not pulling that lazy "race stand-in" crap, except in specific, "only in this one respect and no other stereotypical ways" way. [I'd give examples, but that feels spoilery.]

On the other hand, there are a few species stereotypes [cats always land on their feet], but I promise that "SQUIRRELS LOVE NUTS" is not one of them |=I

[come on, I'm trying to make this SORT OF clean here]

[[you can unfollow me now if SFW-ness is gonna be an issue]]

Anyway, this page was inexplicable misery to get done [due to LIFE] and is in fact posted "unrefined," but thankfully this is the end of the scene, and I will have one more page before taking an indefinite hiatus to rethink how I'm doing this. Once-a-month subpar updating really isn't working out...

"Hey thanks for that papercut, how about putting some lemon juice in it", or "committing a rudeness so rude that its recipient is shocked into answering truthfully without a second thought: something that has ABSOLUTELY NEVER HAPPENED TO ME, NOPE" [though, to be fair, the set of reasonable answers here is limited]

For the record, a Terran* year is about 9826 hours [hours are nearly the same], so Darian is about seventeen in Earth time, and the equivalent of a senior in high school. Similarly, Alex is almost sixteen/a junior. Just pointing this out because otherwise it doesn't come up at all, since I'm not inclined to draw the book version's conversion table in a GN.

*I know sometimes Terra[n] is substituted for Earth[ling], but it's simpler to say than Terra-Firman, and here I'm just trying to designate "not Earth" [with vague success].

So partly because Kiken started watching Avatar: The Last Airbender again, and partly because XCOM: Enemy Unknown's Male Soldier Voice 8 sounds exactly like Dante Basco, I have Zuko’s voice stuck in my head any time I read Darian’s lines. It’s not that it wouldn’t work—in fact, it works fairly well despite sounding slightly too old—but I can’t NOT have Avatar voices for my characters at the moment.

On that note, Jack De Sena would make a good Kotaro, even though I hate just following pre-existing personality types when choosing voices [angry; wacky].

RIP IN PEACE

[For clarity: Darian is a Support class but has "forgotten" his weapons for light spoiler reasons. Kotaro is an Assault class and has forgotten his weapons for completely different reasons [because HE'S A FLAKE].]

This page has been aggravating due to having no ability to work on it despite trying to speed up installments. I might have that settled now, but we'll see.

I was also going to point out that Darian might look like he's impatient, but that got into this long nitpicky thing about minutiae about the situation and personality traits and inevitable spoilers and, you know what? "Impatient" works. I mean, I'd be just as annoyed at having a job shoved on me that turns out to be more than just a couple hours or so of work.

Rough character study of Ana [née Anna--I have one of those already], nearly there but the tail is WAY too bushy [don't fight me on this, it's against the point of the character]

...this is the best I can do lately, it seems, until the 12-hour-per-day job commute nausea wears off... I'm getting too picky with digital stuff, and I don't feel like cleaning up a scan--or even hooking up the scanner, for that matter [limited desk space] =p

[[granted, I could use some more practice being "imperfectionist" if it gets things done, so there]]

This is basically where Hermione goes out with Viktor Krum and has to explain to him her name is pronounced "Her-MY-own-knee" and not "Hermy-own." Because the movies hadn't been made by that point in the books.

I finished this two weeks ago with the intent of trying to get more than one update a month.

Then I got sick.

Then I got a commute that has me out of the house twelve hours a day.

So if it's a bit phoned in, what do you want.

Come back next month =/

uh, hi, been a while, huh

Full disclosure: I've been sick, and my Muse decided to conk out along with me, declaring the best treatment other than sleep [which I can't do for more than like 18 hours straight without totally ruining myself] is going through Ye Olde Steam Backlog... which was recently extended by Transistor+ thanks to a gift card and the Summer Sale... =p I could explain myself away, but short of it is I haven't felt like drawing in a while, and I don't know when that will change, but you'll know when it does. I mean, I gave myself an hour to do this, and it dragged out to two for various reasons...

Anyway, if I haven't sung the praises of Mischief in a while, it's totally awesome, and you should try it out if you dig LOSSLESS raster drawing, especially since they've added in "flip canvas" support and some other features. Definitely worth the investment if you work with print at all.
