Phineas is just so distraught at the idea of someone not inherently trusting him!
WIthout someone’s trust how can he expect to ever peel their skin off and eat their eyeballs?
Their juicy, luminescent, eyeballs.
He only has the best of intentions in mind, after all.
The flat-coloured backgrounds in panels 2+3 seem out of place to me, since usually you have fancy trickery going on (or at least a painterly gradient).
I may be imagining things, but I feel like the colours improved even more over the previous page. Maybe it’s the lighting set-up. The rim lights really add a lot.
I always miss the part of your streams where you do your speech balloons. One day!
Should I feel bad for laughing at Phineas’s suffering? I feel like that’s an okay thing to do.
I thought having a lot going on in those panels would make the page overly busy since this page doesn’t have the usual white gutters. I dunno.
Really watching me draw word balloons is pretty boring, probably. It just involves me spinning the canvas around a lot. Apparently it makes people dizzy. Unless you like watching people draw irregularly shaped ovals? hahah
Ah, you’re right, it would make it pretty busy. Seems like a no-win situation D:
Watching people draw ovals isn’t super exciting, but soaking up different techniques is worth it <3 But you seem to have pretty much described your process in text, whoo!
Did you miss the reflection in that awfully grimy mirror, then? That’s a work of art.
Poor JayJay. At least he looks dejected instead of utterly terrified.
I’m sure he would be pleased to be left out of this conversation entirely.
Oh god, Schtein in the last panel! He reminds me so much of a teenage girl, dunno why. Maybe because of the way he’s positioned or that he’s talking about his reconds like a girl talks about her diary.
Haha, I realize that now. Teenage-girl-Schtein is cute… :3
he always looks like a teenage girl.
HAHA! Good point :)
Have you read the Johannes Cabal short stories or books? JC reminds me a bit of Schtein in a number of different ways. I think you might like them!
Agreed – Both psychopathically intelligent, with a fine line in wit and withering disdain.
I have not. Actually I’d never heard of them until some googling just now. Are they any good?
“Ah hah! But did you know that I am contacting my employers right now through telepathic waves?”
“I don’t believe you.”
“Would you believe cloned messenger pigeons?”
“How about a phone in my shoe?”
Yet another great page. And I am REALLY falling in love with the way you draw teeth. :) So well.
I’m toning down my teeth drawing… For a while there all my characters maybe looked like people wearing dentures over regular teeth. :O
So thank you, nice to know I am on the right track
Oh, look, Jayjay’s sulking.
sulky isn’t a good look on him. He should lighten up.
Ahahaha oh heck this is really fantasti~ Such classic psychotic-sociopathic behavior~! Immediate anger when they;re foucus is being poked at.
OH geez I’m shuddering by him touching his face with those gloves haha. I mean I know I’ve seen him do it on other pages, but the fact some dirty rat just brought them back from GOD knows where.
OMG!… you bothered to throw a mirror into that 1st panel!?
It feels like forever has passed by… WHY is he in that prison again!? XD
Man…shits about to get real…
So schtein won’t trust no one no more, which means his madness shall grow, eeeeeexcellent (burns style)
floating around for anyone to read. But no one does. Like Twilight. OHOHO *shit*
The reflections in that mirror are fantastic! You truly mastered the different light sources in the scene and created a very convincing environment.
And indeed, a fully rendered background in the two small panels would probably have been too much. As it is, I like the way the luminescence of the background colour helps convey the tone Schtein is using, from “merely annoyed” to “full blown sarcastic”.
The hands in this page look AWSOME. How did you take one of the hardest things in the world to draw and make it look so good *is jealous*
Schtein looks So Sexy in the last panel……O_O(having a feeling of crawling onto him)
News for you, Phineas. You’re a shady dude. Who is clearly insane. I don’t think I’d believe you either.
I really love the panel variation in this page. Your textures are always really good too, and the way they’ve mixed here is quite aesthetically pleasing.
This comic is amazing. Y’know what else is amazing? The way you draw hands. Even if this comic was missing the wonderful story and dynamic character interactions, I would still come just for the hands. They are like cocaine for my eyes.
THAT’S IT. Imma invent me a bonafide time machine and travel to the future to buy the book.
It occurs to me that this isn’t really a comic about an angry, mad scientist but, considering that two of the three chapters have been about incarceration, actually a webcomic about prison at this point.
But how many chapters is this comic intended to be?
right now I’ve got six chapters plotted, but it’ll probably end up around nine? Or so?
Jay -Jay looks like a rodents about to naw on Phineas’ arm
Phineas makes the most interesting poses and expressions :P
Obviously I think your work is amazing, but I just want to note that the colouring around the rim of this page looks amazing, its much nice than just white. Little things like that make you a great artist!
gosh you are the master of dialog!!
I just found this comic recently but I had to read all the previous chapters and get caught up. I’m so jelly. Schtien is so freaking lovable for a drunk asshole. <3
aw awesome. Thanks for reading! :D
I was just reccomended this comic by a friend the other day, and I have to say! This is a really awesome webcomic! :D
yay, neat. Word of mouth seems to be the majority way I attract new readers. Which is great. Thank you so much for checking it out and reading. C:
Seriously loving this comic; your use of angles is brilliant. And damn you for writing such great dialogue!
Thank you! I learned all my camera techniques from watching 60’s batman. When unbalanced people are on screen you tilt the camera to make them seem more unbalanced!
I’m only half joking, of course. :y
