New shading and style added to give this strip a little more pop, due to 80% of what you see being made of the same shade of chocolate, including parts of the choco-mech… Also, Dave from Selkie sent us an interesting take on what he thought was around the corner for our heroes, as well as a neat Dorothy “conglomerate” pic ala Voltron:
Ha, got your attention! Penguins are for the show my daughter is watching right now: “Pingu!”. Rabbits and dragons are for the content of my submission to Japan Needs Heroes, but also I put up a new incentive sketch! It’s of Cindy holding a rabbit. Yay! I put a new one up! Bout time, I know. Been working hard on my JNH submission and it’ll be done soon but I really thought you’d all grown tired of staring at David’s harp, LOL. Enjoy!
Also, forgive me still for the continued rough look of the comic. I still don’t have my normal program and the wacom doesn’t always seem to be smooth with Adobe 7.0. Hope to have this fixed soon!
Haha:) I like using “kilt” for killed, in case you didn’t get that’ what was going on. Well, let’s see. I apologize for both the rougher look of this strip as well as no incentive for a small time. Having my computer crash meant I lost my best art program:( It’s a bit of a change going from Adobe CS5 back down to Adobe 7.0. Eventually, I hope to climb up to the creative suite level again but for now I must accommodate and see if I can play with the brushes again to get that nice clean look instead of the fuzzy look I got using the pencil tool of all things. Hm.
As for the voting incentives, I am trying to do a piece for the great cause of Japan Needs Heroes. Now it boasts a forward by Stan Lee as well as having several established, PUBLISHED, comic names involved! Hurray! So I will attempt to get it done this week, along with the next strip and see where I’m at for time to maybe do the incentive as well.
I have no idea what happened but my computer crashed big-time. TB knows how to fix things like that so it is better now, but this is why the voting incentive is late. Trying to bring my printer/scanner, wacom tablet, and computer to speaking terms again. And of course I need them to work together so I can produce the comic! So, onward, and hoping the installs are painless:)
Hi, Shards readers! We few, we happy few! Heh:) Well, after some consideration, I’ve decided it’s time to pull the plug on this farce. We will not be doing Shards anymore.
. . . . .
Not until after the April Fool’s Strip tomorrow:) So please join us in the celebration of all that is wrong and false and check out tomorrow’s special strip! (No we are not closing shop. THAT was the April Fool’s part, a day early. I repeat, Shards is NOT being canned!)
Hope you enjoy tomorrow’s strip, and today’s incentive, which is David’s harp. I thought it’d be neat to take a closer look at it. Our version on the left (the one with purple on it), the model I found for it on the right.
Also in Shards news, another comic by a world-renown artist had an art contest and my art is up if you’re interested in seeing some other stuff I do. Go visit the art page to check it out! I did the three cartoony kitties at the bottom. They were all kittens I had at one time so I entered them in the contest:)
