Rose City Comic-Con is this weekend! If you're going to be at the show, come see me. I will be at the big Periscope Studios booth island!
I'm excited to be going to the show... but I'm sad about being torn away from Super Mario Maker! I've only made a couple of levels so far, but I'm having a blaaaaaaast.
If you have the game yourself, you can try my Mario levels by inputing one of the level codes from my Miiverse feed! (Once you've done that once, you can just follow me in Mario Maker and browse all my levels that way.) The ones I've made so far are... a little on the hard side... but I think they have some fun ideas. (QUESTION MARK?)
Comics in Transit
I'm busy prepping for this weekend's Rose City Comic-Con! But I still have a little extra something fun to share with you all.
As Patreon Art Blog backers will already know, Cloudscape invited me to draw a comic for the City of Vancouver's Comics in Transit program! Basically, they're putting giant comics in bus stops around the city for the next few weeks. Here is mine, which -- if you're local -- you can go see for yourself on the Northeast corner of Fraser and 28th!
It was pretty fun to draw a comic that I knew would be printed so HUGE! And I'm pretty happy with how this one turned out... so much so that I was actually thinking of making some posters (at a somewhat less enormous size) to sell online. Would anyone want one? Let me know!
Sam and Fuzzy Q & A: Mostly-Ignoring-Today's-Shocker Edition
Got a question you want answered? Just drop me an email with "Q & A" in the subject line!
"There've been a lot of references to the robot faction of the Committee lately. Are we going to learn more about them in the future?" -Amy
Yes! They will be prominently featured in an upcoming story. But you can also learn a whole bunch about them right now in the Underground RPG gamebook's extensive guidebook to the Sam and Fuzzy universe! There's a ton of info about all the Committee factions and species in there.
"In this comic Devahi can't turn off the Buddy Bear army because the voice identification isn't recognized. But Jes Starr is right behind her. Does her shapeshifting allow her perfect vocal mimicry as well?" -Peter
As you've now seen, yes she can! I figured some people would see that coming, but that's OK. If it feels plausible enough to guess, then it's probably plausible enough to not feel like a cop-out. Ha!
"I thought Sin’s head… skull… body-helmet cracked when Sam hit him with that fire extinguisher? I’m not seeing that crack anymore." -Jake
Sin's robot head has a horizontal seam there -- the top of his head is a sealed "door" that he can open to get in and out. Sam's attack slightly dislodged the door, so I tried to communicate that by making the seam slightly visible up close or from certain angles. I was maybe more subtle about where I did or didn't depict it than I should have been, but I only wanted it to look a little damaged, not trashed.
But still, uh... a little damaged was enough for Brain's purposes, I guess. Yikes.
Come back on Monday for our next comic!
