  1. theheroesofcrash.com With an evil, witch-like villainess bursting out of a trash can she'd been trapped in, I couldn't resist making a Power Rangers reference. Tee hee! Belt Boy doesn't have Cannon's natural sarcastic wit, but after years of having Cannon as a friend and seeing witty hero reparte in comics/cartoons/movies, he's able to make some decent quips against evildoers. Granted, a lot of them are puns, but he takes pride in them. I colored the trash can in the second panel with the grays and blues it's supposed to have, then put a translucent layer of red coloring over it to make it look like it was heating up. I also used translucent layers for the steam. I love how B.O.N.N.I.E. is cowering behind Belt Boy in the last panel. While she could easily have communicated with BB without popping out of his belt - much like she did in the previous comic - I felt that making her hide behind him made her emotion that much stronger.
  2. theheroesofcrash.com Somewhere between Justice League and Tom and Jerry... lies The Heroes of C.R.A.S.H. Hoo boy! Today's comic was quite an undertaking. I wound up using a lot of layers for that last panel in order to have the translucent layers and sound effects. The last two panels, at one point, were going to be one long panel, with an additional image of Sunflower just before she crashed into the wall, but breaking it up into two panels seemed to let the action flow a bit more, making it easier to read. I decided to make the two panels share scenery and a stretched-out word balloon to illustrate that the two images are close to each other in terms of both distance and time. By the way, if you still are interested in my birthday contest - in which EVERYONE gets a prize - the details are on this page: http://www.theheroesofcrash.com/ContestRulesAnStuffPage.htm
  3. theheroesofcrash.com She's back! The return of the super-mean, superpowered supervillain (with a super-silly name), Miss Sunflower! Seems Belt Boy wants to calm her hot temper with some refreshing soda, but is this plan all wet? I accidentally gave today's comic's title to last week's comic, although it's still pretty apt. Last week's title was supposed to have been "Old School" - a reference to all the mentions of school in the dialogue, as well as to Belt Boy's classic science class project-based plan. This week's title, I came up with off the top of my head. A good portion of my comic is inspired by the old Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoons of the late 80s and early 90s. While a lot of people don't really like how the Turtles would often resort to silly visual gags and slapstick instead of actual ninja fighting, I still enjoy it, and today's gag is an homage to that. I do, after all, want to give my comic the feel of a Saturday morning cartoon. I'm decently pleased with how the layout of today's comic turned out, given the limited space I alotted myself. If I could add a panel, I'd put one between panels 4 and 5, showing Miss Sunflower struggling to her feet.
  4. theheroesofcrash.com Seems Belt Boy has a plan coming together... and it's going to either be brilliant or extremely silly. Oh, who am I kidding? Knowing Belt Boy, it'll probably be both. For this comic, I decided that B.O.N.N.I.E. could communicate with Belt Boy without putting up her screen via his B-Chip - the communication device that he, Cannon, and Titanium Maiden all have hidden in their headgear. It seems logical, as having her screen out would probably keep him from running as fast. I also decided to have BB look a bit less worn-out than he did in the last strip in which he appeared; he's covering it up a bit better as he puts his "game face" on. Plus, I think it helps that he's focused on one thing right now: defeating Miss Sunflower. And I'll admit, I just like how he looks in the first panel and I didn't want to ruin it by frazzling his hair or showing the bags under his eyes. So I'll excuse them away however I want. So there. Nyah, nyah. :-P Seriously, though, I do like his pose in that first panel. While I've been largely focused on improving the anatomy of my characters over the past year or so, I feel like I've neglected the "toony" side of their design, leaving my characters a bit stiff. So, I'm doing a bit of experimenting by starting my drawings with a "line of action" in order to make better poses. From what I understand, it's best to exaggerate the line of action as much as possible, as it loses some of that exaggeration when you add in structure. I think that first panel is an indication of how well it's helping; BB looks like he's really moving. The title of this comic is a reference to actor Paul Zaloom, who played the title character on Beakman's World. While I appreciate Bill Nye's past and continuing contributions to the scientific community, he was only my third favorite educational TV scientist. My second favorite was Mr. Wizard (I remember waking up early in the morning and seeing Mr. Wizard's World on Nickelodeon many times hwen I was really, really young), and my number one pick was - you guessed it - Beakman. His show was a lot like Bill Nye's with its comedic tone and cartoony sound effects, but he had two co-stars (A disgruntled man in a rat suit named Lester, who often served as the straight man or victim for many a joke, as well as one of three different female lab assistants that changed between seasons), and he actually answered kids' science questions that were mailed to him (In an era where the internet wasn't popular yet, computers weren't in every house, and Googling stuff was essentially impossible, this was HUGE.). Also, I got to meet "Beakman" at a science museum tour, help him on stage, and get his autograph, so he's definitely a sentimental favorite. :-) Oh, and lastly, did you catch that pop culture reference on the cover of Belt Boy's book? That gag was a last-minute addition, and I hope some of my fellow animation fans get it...!
  5. Belt Boy's ready to take on Miss Sunflower mano a mano...Or is that mano y mano? Mano y womano? *A quick Google search later...* Huh... it's really "mano a mano", and that means "hand-to-hand"... Which may not be accurate since BB and Sunflower are both decked out in tech gear. Well, in any event, there's gonna be some fighting. Not much commentary to add on this strip, except maybe that I really like BB's pose in panel #2. I actually have a bit more commentary for last week's strip: I went back and edited last week's strip; I accidentally forgot to put on B.O.N.N.I.E.'s eye lens. Whoops!
  6. theheroesofcrash.com Isn't that always how it goes? You think you have everything sorted out, and then WHAM! Life throws you a curveball that hits you right between the eyes. What emergency is Belt Boy being alerted to? Find out next time! Y'know, we don't see a lot of B.O.N.N.I.E. in the comic. This is largely because - although she has thoughts, feelings, and emotions - she is still a computer program, and while it would be a stretch to say she lacks free will, she does have some limitations on what she can do. She doesn't pop out of Belt Boy's utility belt unless summoned, or unless she's been instructed to appear under certain conditions (like if there's an emergency). Still, she can act on her own when given free reign (She plays a LOT of online games when not actively helping BB with tasks!). The other reason is that her "vector look" is a bit annoying to draw at times. She might be due for a redesign (Or, in her case, an upgrade!).
