Huzzah! Something I didn't think would work Actually Did! = D
My area has been a sweaty armpit for weeks now. It's so bad that the pages of my strip book has been physically puffy. It got so bad that I skipped a week & worked on something else w/ other dry paper.
Seeing that the weather wasn't going to play nice again, I put my strip book in w/ the other paper until I was ready to work.
It's still dry enough to work despite the weather! My guess Actually Worked! = D
It's too muggy to draw tonight. I'm going to work on website stuff instead...
Or just completely slack off & grind through more D2 Moments of Triumph stuff to get that sweet sweet armor & a t-shirt w/ my name on it.
‘Shark Week Aftermath’ - Shark Fighterz [07.27.2018 to 07.30.2018]

Johnny's all tapped out of quarters but Jimmy is absolutely killin' it in 'Shark Fighterz'. What's a sharkboy to do but cheer on his friend. = )
- Sketch: 4H on Printer paper, light tabled to Cardstock.
- Final: HB & 4H pencil on Cardstock. Color shifted, text & game screen added in Fireworks.
With how humid things have been as of late, I need to attempt to get some proper work done. And I still need to do my laundry.
This was the first day in a while that I could actually draw on paper without worry. Guess it kinda' got away from me...
The Fabulous Life of a Cartoonist, folks! = D
- Rebuild comic's homepage to remove dead ads.
- Build new in-house ads
- Start on next strip
What that fool ghost bird doesn't realize is I always add a little coffee to my hot chocolate. At least I didn't just make a full cup of coffee & drink it 'till it was the right level to not overflow when I made the hot chocolate...
This time. = )
Plush Decidueye is judging my choice to drink coffee after 2am. o.O

At some point in time, I do need to get off my butt & build a dedicated streaming rig.
That complaint in the last one? Easily fixed by simply sending video out to a system & streaming from there. Not that I'd go through all that trouble for a single title but it is something I've had in mind for a while now.
Just drop a couple of capture cards into an older box (One for Coax/Analog, one for HDMI) & rock that. It's more work but I'd get to play classics on original gear.

Tried streaming 'New Gundam Breaker' last night only to find that it's blocked from streaming directly from the PS4.
Now, I get why a company would do this. No matter what reasons for/against that I can come up w/, Bandai has theirs & that's that. The thing that bums me out is I kinda' just want to show off what all I've built in it in motion. Stills are great & all but gameplay is better.
I Really hope they change their stance & fix it but yeah... probably not. -.-
Basking in that Post-Comic afterglow.
Now to do all the rest of the stuff companies have whole departments for like marketing & merchandise.
Speaking of which...

Next strip should go live shortly after Midnight tonight (depending on how the site updates go).
I see the typo & I'll let it stand.
It wasn't hot this past week. No... it was something more.
It was like the weather smacked you in the face with a humid funky mix of heat & water & It Never Calmed Down. Just a weather tantrum that left you a horrible sticky mess.
Just Thinking about going outside left you drenched in sweat. -.-
I don't want to jinx anything but...
It's not a hit humid mess here at the House of Amill. The weather is surprisingly... Nice. o.o
On the Plus Side:
Had to hit up my local mall today. It's a location in my comic, specifically the strip on the table right now. The part I'm drawing has changed in the decade since I last drew it.
Stepping back & resting up gave me a chance to scout the place to see what's changed. I now have extra stuff to draw but it's a far cry from what I was planning. The good & bad of setting fictional stories in real places.
Things change. But, that change lends my story a better sense of time. = )
Slowly but surely, I'm getting the next Biff strip done.
My thumb on my drawing hand was hurting pretty good yesterday. Less so today. Thankfully, I'm not the dumb kid I used to be & I'm treating this like any strain - A little ice, a bit of rest, slow my roll so I don't exacerbate whatever's going on.
Remember: Stretch & stay safe. Don't risk your wrists or hands to make a deadline. -.-
