This did not take very long at ALL. Good job me for making my pencils really aggressively finished!

Later pages will take a bit longer since they'll have more panels, but that's fine. Unsure if I'll add any additional tones afterwards; that'll wait for once my inks are complete.

Since the theme for this month's S2B2 is "old tropes presented with affection," I suspect my pinup is going to involve a guy with one angel wing and one demon wing popping out of a computer to the delight of a dumpy nerd. Aside from being extremely 90s it's also pretty on-brand for me, y'know?

Today is gonna be a good day, I hope!

On the MUD I'll be working more on getting auto-populating seating functioning, and once I get that done/lose patience with it I can move to converting an area to some new state-tracking tools I done thunk up OR just work purely on making nice words for rooms that currently only exist as skeletal frames.

Artwise, I can start my inks on my S2B2 comic! And maybe dash together a sketch for my pinup for the August issue, which is due on Saturday.

Q: What reptile is fondest of dried fruits and grains?

A: a granole

In this case "daemon" means "higher-level program," it's not THAT kind of game.

Me: "Ah, the weekend, when I can just goof off and not worry about game code for a bit."

Also Me: gets frustrated with wonkiness of newly-implemented area so DIGS INTO ACTUAL DAEMON TO WRITE NEW FUNCTIONS AND DEBUG TOOLS

24 pages FULLY LETTERED. Next week the inks will begin! Hot diggity!

The prophecy is fulfilled: we have begun regularly referring to one another as "baby weiner broccoli" when parting at the apex of a commute, because this is the kind of people we are now.

I do think in the future I might make some line ruling with sample letter sizes on it so I don't have to, like, do nearly as many passes on text. But that's for later and part of the learning process.

Taking a quick break but I have finished almost all of my relettering (save for some incidental SFX and captions, plus a few things on video monitors) and now just need to format the placement of the text, finalize bubble shapes, and slap on fancy new outlines. And it's only 9:30! Heck yeah!

My name's Jimmy Akira, and I'm gonna be the best motorcycle racer in all of New York!

An influx of new users could mean an influx of new sadboy instances. Let me know if you see any, I'll try to keep my eyes peeled too~

Today's goals are to do a little more area work and then SPEECH BUBBLES, YEAHHH~

I’m getting that weird urge to make a joint role playing account for Sarouth and Riaag (key detail: they can’t read so there’s be an assumed text-to-speech protocol somewhere, and questions that get too meta would be unintelligible or ignored) but I am VERY BUSY RIGHT NOW...

Vanilla dot-social is definitely way too big now to bother with the public feed, but I generally don’t look at non-curated feeds anyway, so it works out for me. I’ve had this account for stankin’ ages and I don’t anticipate relocating any time soon; if I’d joined just today, though? Probably somewhere dinkier.

Excited to see what smaller, more intimate instances do with the influx!
