Do I have anything interesting to say this week?
Not really, but I'm scribb1ing away anyway. That's just the way I like to do things!
Some of you may be wondering why I'm hanging upside down in a lone roller coaster car. Well, there's an interesting story to that: We decided it seemed funnier for me to be upside down on a roller coaster with my hair hanging straight down, rather than blowing behind me, like physics would say it should. Then, on top of that, Brian didn't want to draw multiple cars and people, because he was crunched for time when he made this. Now a person might say, "Why don't you go back and draw in the cars later, when you have more time?" To that I say: What kind of operation do you think we're running here? I'm a fictional character and Brian's an "artiste." We don't have George Lucas money to throw around making tweaks that some people will complain about down the line. Besides, I'm starring in a pretty low-effort webcomic—I don't even get colors or shading most of the time. There's just too much effort there!
But, for those of you who are worried that my midriff is covered in this comic (because I'm sure those sorts of people exist), you should feel reassured that it's just the angle and position. My belly is perfectly bare, and you can even tell by the way my shirt appears to swoop up in the front near the coaster car. This is all very important stuff to document, because it's silly and people might want to look like idiots and get mad about it at some point. The more important thing to wonder, however, is where my right arm is. That's really easy! It's sitting on my lap. It's totally not that Brian forgot to draw it and then couldn't figure out a good place to put it. Sometimes, people don't want to have both of their hands hanging out of an upside-down roller coaster. It's that easy!
Man! It sure is easy to make-up possible complaints or observations myself and comment on them in my Scribb1es! Perhaps it's not the most robust form of discourse, but it sure doesn't make me feel as shitty as talking to other people can. (Other people are so…argh-ish sometimes.) Well, you're not argh-ish, if you like the comics I appear in and the Scribb1es I do. It's really hard to be a fictional character who breaks the fourth wall as much as I do without being hyper-violent and/or owned by a multinational entertainment corporation. Your appreciation is thus appreciated!
Oh, and if you're interested, old installments of both Brandy de Hex: Certified Sorceress AND Polarnoids are now on Webtoons! If you don't already read them here, on Starry Knight Studios, you should read them somewhere, because they're in color and probably make more sense to more people. I don't always make sense to people, but that's part of my charm. That, and my perpetually bare midriff and mad skateboarding skills. (I'm super good at skateboarding, I swear!)
And with that, I'm done for this week. Next week, we'll see what happens next week!
