Happy (slightly early) Halloween from Dev, Edwin, and the seldom seen Ms. Potts!
Sam and Fuzzy Q & A: Spooky Edition
Got a question you want answered? Just drop me an email with "Q & A" in the subject line!
"Are you going to be doing a Halloween Sketch-Off this year?" -Aaron
Yes! It's been ages since the last Sketch Off, but Halloween's my fav, so I can't not doing it! I'll be holding the Halloween Sketch Off on Monday... that is, on actual Halloween! How convenient.
For those who are new around these parts, my Sketch-Off events are when I spend a full day drawing inked sketches of Sam and Fuzzy characters in costumes. Every drawing is based on a suggestion that a reader live tweets or emails me. I pick my favs, spend the day drawing 'em, and stream the whole shebang!
It'll start at 11am on Monday. I'll post all the links and details with Monday's update. Woo!
"Can Jess actually use her shape-shifting ability to turn semi-transparent, like in your latest bonus drawing? Or was that just 'artistic license'? " -Emily
First off, the aforementioned bonus drawing, for those who haven't seen it!
I drew this as one of my monthly Patreon bonus pieces... I make a couple big pieces every month, based on backer votes. Every backer gets to vote, and higher level backers get high res versions, sketches, layered PSDs and other goodies that show how they were made.
A lot of folks wanted to see the gang dressed as traditional Halloween monsters, and I was happy to oblige. I definitely picked Jess to be the ghost because I thought I could use her shapeshifting ability to justify making her actually transparent. That said, I don't know if I'd want to firmly commit to any canonical invisibility powers. (Jess' abilities are kind of OP as it is!)
"Hey Sam, could we have some profile picture style art? That would be awesome!" -Micah
Well sure, since you asked so nicely!
These are, of course, all repurposed from various existing pieces. Should I make a bunch of original ones and sell them as a little downloadable goodiebag? (Or include them as a Patreon bonus?) You tell me, friends!
That's a wrap for this week! Come back on Monday, when we throw our Halloween Sketch-Off, and plunge right back into our big robot story. See you then!
