This has come up with me a few times but I've never really gotten around to asking for artistic opinions on the subject.

Occasionally, I want to convey a small movement like, a blink or, a curt nod of the head.

I've seen other artists do movement lines or just write out a word like "nod."

I can't seem to shake the feeling that there's got to be another way to do it. I could just draw three panels to indicate all the stages of a blink or head nod. But, that seems like quite a lot of effort for something that's supposed to be ever so brief.


So, How do y'all handle small movements?

I do them in batches of 8. This way it keeps me from focusing too much on any one panel. Which I have a habit of doing.

Sometimes I just leave a panel blank in hopes that future Sleeper knows what I was planning on putting there.

I never really wanted to be an artist to begin with. I just wrote a story that I thought could be best told in a graphic novel format. I tried off and on for years to connect with an artist who was willing and able to do the art for it.

Needless to say, that didn't pan out. So, I just started doing it myself. I had no idea how hard it was going to be. But I don't really think of quitting as an option.

So, I'd say I'm pretty serious about my story. Less so about the art itself. I'm not holding my breath for a call from Image. But, I would eventually like to see my story on a bookshelf somewhere. Even if it's just in my own personal library.

I originally guessed Xibalba would be around 300 pages. I've got 1bout 150 pages done now so I should be about half way through. Though I have no idea how accurate that 300 page estimate is.

I should really just break out the master script and see how deep I am into it.

All y'all clearly don't care enough about your readers' feelings. Every time I post a page, I leave an authors note inviting people to chime in on how my characters should look or act and then I make the adjustments for the following page.

I's called being polite people.

Pill bugs aren't insects at all.

Just learned this the other day and had to check Google.

They're crustaceans.

My world will never be the same again.

Y'know, I haven't really been on all that often of late so, I read through these sorts of things a few days late and, well... something's wrong.

I couldn't quite put my finger on it at first because, something good happened, but it didn't feel right.

Then it hit me.

This shit has been sitting here, on the front page, for twelve goddamn days, and the word "Memendment" has not been used once.


It's like I don't even know who you people are anymore.

I thought my dad was Jewish because he didn't come to mass with the rest of the family. Clearly, those were the only two options.

I thought ants were cold outside and would hold the door open to invite them in. "Come on in guys."

ProRevo128:The reason I think puns are evidence is because they said a pun in the flav and Weegee says puns.

So...

MYSTERY SOLVED



Honestly, I think it's still to early to say, but this is as good a reason as any. Weegee

I was hoping someone out there might be willing to open up a file, verify that the parts that are supposed to be round are, and then export it at highest possible quality either as a STL or an OBJ file.

Why?
I've been doing some 3D printing lately, found a design I wanted to use online, but the STL file posted looks like it was exported in low resolution (All sorts of straight lines instead of curves). The artist was nice enough to give me the original file, but it's an MLT file which I can't open with my usual 3D modeling program or the free version of Maya.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

That relaxing feel when your coworker shows up to relieve you for the night. Very nice framing. I like the little cut to the eyes and the dark tendrils.

This week on Xibalba, A talking Gila monster tells the main character that hallucinations might be dangerous and suggests using marijuana to solve her problems.

Today's page is a public service announcement from old man Sleeper.

I was really happy about how the bottom left panel came out.
