I had five minutes with a digital camera in a room illuminated by one 100 watt light bulb. Apologies for the funny but inevitable shadows, and clicky click for larger size versions.

side profiles!

part of an attempt to draw pages instead of individual strips. they're both equally unfocussed and random, though.

this is all true. Keventers is a tiny bakery near Wengers in Connaught Place.

the second law should sound familiar to fans of The Wire.

heehee

true story.

More tomorrow.

I’m really going to miss this guy. =(

4 new comics!

As per usual, and apologies for the uneven scan quality…I bought a new notebook for the comic, whose binding makes scanning a little difficult.

Clickies for full size.

Mostly an experiment to draw in more background details. I had a bit of trouble maintaining dimensions, so this one ended up like those old Chacha Chaudhary issues with a wildly variable Sabu.

Sigh. Unfortunately all true. And yes, I do use the cellphone with my left hand.

Fun to draw. Funner to colour. Text placement could use a bit of work, though.

More Comics

March 13, 2009

Buried in work, so here’s three new comics to buy more time for the next post (where I’ll be exploring the rather tragic impact of financial poverty on my life generally and my lunch specifically)

First one was drawn on Holi – its mostly experimental, and therefore poorly drawn, but I wanted to try and draw me (and others) in a pose other than standing, and locations other than abstract squiggly lines and exposition.

It turned out a little more verbose than I’d anticipated, but I’m still reasonably happy with it. (By the way, those are water pistols in Panel 1. Both models actually exist.)

It was only a matter of time before Kitty and Witty (of Livemedia infamy – those infernal televisions now in every restaurant and/or bar) made an appearance here, something even the bloody company accepts is a ‘a clever rendition of poor jokes through animation.’ Wow.

And, sigh, start-of-week gaming tragedy:

Three more Comics

March 5, 2009

Why yes, I have been rather productive this last week.

The middle panel in this one didn’t turn out as well as I wanted it to, but I do play the Zelda Item Fanfare in my head whenever I get a plate of momos. It’s true.

And the last panel is also true. The auto was completely empty. No driver, no ethereal aura, nothing. Not even a tractor beam. It just…moved.

Drawing this next one made me happy: I obsessed over the colouring for a while, and its possibly the most complex one I’ve attempted so far.  The game depicted here is the utterly daft and brilliant Elite Beat Agents, in which, and I’m going to let the official site describe this for you:

The main characters of Elite Beat Agents are members of a fictional government agency responsible for helping those in need. The agents encourage the person through their dancing and the people they assist are instilled with motivation that helps them overcome various obstacles.

And then there’s this. I quite like this one. It’s also completely true.

#2 and #3

Apologies for the quality: lack to access to scanning facilities meant I had to rely on photographs, and my dust-loving Cellphone camera. 

Click for (unhelpful) bigger size versions – nice, spiffy scans as soon as possible, promise.

I Can Has Gnome!

January 30, 2009

Found this today, in the French Wikipedia, of all things:

Un sottai (ou sotê) est une petite créature légendaire cavernicole du folklore wallon, frère du nuton et comparable au lutin français.

which, processed through Google’s arcane Babelfish-powered translator thingamajig, emerged as:

A Sottai (or SOTE) is a small cave legendary creature of wallon folklore , brother of nutons and similar to elf [in] French.

I blinked at this point. Intrigued, I put the rest of the article through the thingamajig, especially the part where it goes on to describe these sottais thusly:

D’après les récits populaires, ils étaient très petits et basanés

which, to my complete disbelief, meant:

According to popular stories, they were very small and brown

Now that right there, is quite possibly the most accurate description of me I’ve ever read. Ever.

This is also, as you realize, wonderful news!

I was always suspected of being a gnome (Yes, R, this means you),
so in a way I’m glad this whole identity crisis has been sorted out. Hurray for gnome-ness!
