You guys just going to leave the donation bar a dollar away from a new gift? Hell, I can’t believe it added up to that (trust me I recalculated it repeatedly in disbelief). I’m not begging for donations or anything, I just can’t believe it landed on that number and stayed there for so long. :/
Pony Comics continue.
Sorry, i don’t have much to say or show today. It’s been a bad day for your friendly neighborhood webcomic artist.
BTW I’m selling stuff on Ebay to try to raise money for Christmas, check it out and see if there’s anything your interested in.
Well, my cat, Sparkles, had to be taken in for surgery over the weekend. One of the injuries he substained got infected BAD. It got taken care of, and he seems to be okay (granted I said that last time).
They had to shave a chunk of fur off him to get to the wound. So he looks absolutely silly at the moment. Other than that we also have to give him an antibiotic now, so that’s three meds we have to give him now. One is hard enough, three has caused this to become a two person affair now. I hold him and my wife force feeds the meds down him. He then publicly pouts by standing with his back turned to us (but obviously in our field of vision). It’s adorable how much like a child he is.
As for Pony Comics, I hope you don’t mind, but I’ve decide to stretch this out a little further than planned. Originally it was only going to be four strips, but it’s going to be extended to six. Hope you don’t mind.
Okay, there’s a little back story to this and the next three comics. Originally I was going to put together a short comic (like 13 strips) called Pony Comics that was going to be an obvious parody of My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic. Unfortunately the project was shelved for multiple reasons like lack of time, loss of interest, and the fact Jappleack popped up doing a better parody also starring Applejack.
So yeah, plans to release this comic got scrapped completely… until today. I was originally going to do some random filler gags for the next few weeks, but this weekend wasn’t pleasant for me as my cat (Sparkles) got hit by a car, and it totally put me in a bad mindframe for working on the comic. My weekend was spent taking him to the vet and nursing him back into good health. Yes, my cat lived through being hit by a car, he’s that bad ass. The only injuries he got was some brain swelling (meds are taking care of this), torn ligaments in his shoulder (he got prescribed kitty morphine for this), a puncture wound, and his back claws ground to the tips. He was pretty God damned lucky… or at least pretty God damn tough. The jury is still out on this.
Now if this all wasn’t stressful enough, I also acquired a new puppy recently too. A Blue Heeler we named Waffle (one of her ears has a slight deformity to it that kinda’ makes it look and feel like a waffle). Now puppies are cute, but new puppies are always a pain to get under control.
So if dealing with a sick cat and new puppy wasn’t enough trouble, I also had to do it BY MYSELF, as my wife and daughter were out of town over the weekend. So yeah, quite the juggling act this weekend, add in I had to work my day job on Sunday, and I’m sure you can understand that I’m more than a little exhausted.
So in order to regain my strength and relax a little I decided to dust off these old comics I drew, have Chris color them, and put them up for the next two weeks. Hope you guys don’t mind, and best of all, I hope you enjoy them.
Sorry I didn’t get another set of BG characters done today. Been feeling pretty tired today. Working on Cartoon Catastrophes, The Halloween picture for the Artificial Orange Studios website (check it out, it has Shelly dressed as a Mudkip), a double paged Ask Princess Preti Evil comic, and getting and playing Solatorobo all took their toll on me.
Also for all you people who’ve been wanting me to do more Pony Comics, you might want to check this out. No promises on how long it will last though.
So yeah, as mentioned last update, this is the last week to get yourself or a character of your creation into Femmegasm via donation. As said in the original rules you have to donate at least $20 for this to work. If you wish to donate, but don’t have a Paypal account or credit card, feel free to email me at email@example.com and we can try and work something out.
For now, have some random fanart I drew from:
