Sam and Fuzzy Q & A: Gutsy Edition
Got a question you want answered? Just drop me an email with "Q & A" in the subject line!
"Couple comics ago Dev talks about not having the guts to do what the dancers do. Am I misremembering or a lifetime ago didn’t she go undercover with Sam, Jess and X and Y as a burlesque dancer?" -Sean
Misremembering, but only slightly! Dev did go undercover as a dancer in the Off the Sauce storyline... but the plan only required her to dress as a burlesque performer, while a shape-shifting Jess Star handled all of their actual performances. (Or at least, Jess was supposed to handle all of them -- X and Sam wound up having to improvise their own acts when Jess was needed elsewhere.)
So, Dev never performed an act, or even learned one... and I think that suits her just fine. To be honest, I don't think Dev is the kind of person who likes being on stage for any reason, let alone a burlesque performance. So, any interest she has in this stuff is explored strictly in private. (lol)
"So this Church of the OGAWD, do they worship the Great and Powerful Gah'Hest Ar-T'st by any chance?
Now that we know what the Pit contained and what Tar actually is, does the Great and Powerful Gah-Hest Ar-T'st actually have the ability to control it??" -Alan
So many of my characters have straight, smooth, and frequently pointy hair -- it's that childhood anime influence! So I've been trying to work a little more on my curly hair styles. When I was designing Ruby, I was exploring different ways to ink/stylize "coily" hair specifically in my super-simplified art style, so I was just kind of doodling attempts at it anytime and anywhere I had a chance. Including that page of Jess's dates, apparently!
But in the end, that random date actually looks so similar to Ruby's final design that I might go back and tweak it at some point to avoid confusion. All of Jess Star's dates on that page are supposed to be humans, so it especially doesn't make sense for an inhuman like Ruby to be there. (Plus, she has something else going on in the dating department that will be revealed later.)
That's all for this week, team! But come back on Monday for our next comic.
