  1. http://TheHeroesOfCRASH.com Seems that there's still plenty of arguing amongst Belt Boy's friends back at C.R.A.S.H., all of them unaware that their friend is in danger. Will they be able to settle their differences? Will they focus their anger on Belt Boy after those promises he made? Will Titanium Maiden get some aspirin for that headache she's clearly getting? The answers to these questions and more will be coming soon, so stay tuned! At one point, I considered having Gelatin Boy interject in Comic #670's argument between his teammates, asking if he had any say in the matter and his friends all shouting "NO!" at him. However, that didn't seem entirely in character for him; he's still the type to avoid confrontation, be it among friends or foes. I keep needing to remind myself to draw Enticia's earrings whenever I draw her. It's a little detail that I don't always think about. I'm sure someone could browse through my archives and play "Spot the Missing Earring", searching for panels where I accidentally drew her without it. I believe I skipped the earring throughout the Gym-Nauseum storyline, but to be fair, I think she would take them off when going to the gym. The title of today's strip refers to both Unk and Titanium Maiden. I enjoy subverting tropes and cliches - neither of my super-muscular characters are stereotypical "muscleheads", nor are they brutes. Unk is fairly quiet and zen, while Titanium Maiden has had (and still has) quite a bit of shyness and awkwardness to overcome.
  2. Comic 4/29/17 - "You" Times Two, "Eep" Times Three(p) TheHeroesOfCRASH.com Just to be clear, I'm counting last week's strip, so Dino-Mo has dramatically shouted "YOU!" twice in a row, eliciting an "Eep" from Enticia, Dodge, and Sugar Rush, hence the title. I'm still working on the next storyline, but I'm hoping that I can keep the number of characters small. These big group shots are a pain in the tuchus, especially when working with a limited number of frames. Granted, this is a webcomic; I could always add more frames. But I would like to print these out in an actual comic, and so in more recent years, I've been doing my best to keep the format consistent. I really like Dino-Mo's speech bubble in the last frame. While this is a bit of deja vu from the previous comic, Dino-Mo is getting angrier and angrier, so her firey speech balloon from the last strip is now burnt and crispy. By the way folks, DON'T FORGET ABOUT MY CONTEST! It ends May 19th, and EVERYONE WHO ENTERS GETS A PRIZE!!! Click the button on my site's main page for rules and details!
  3. theheroesofcrash.com Jackknife has yet to learn his lesson about following people. Although perhaps I shouldn't say "yet", as that suggests that someday he WILL learn his lesson... The hardest part about drawing today's strip was drawing Dino-Mo in that first panel. It was an awkward pose and it needed quite a bit of editing, particularly around her arm. It's surprising how tricky it can be to draw people from behind; there's fewer features to draw, but we're pretty used to visualizing people from the front, so all the angles are different. I definitely had fun with word balloons in this strip, particularly in panels 1 and 3. It's funny how simple things like that can give so much character to... well, characters!
  4. theheroesofcrash.com Awkward moment alert! Dino-Mo's typically fairly laid back, but if you threaten her teammates, you're pushing her buttons, and she's a bit more likely to hold a grudge. Enticia's already on her bad side, and it looks like Belt Boy's getting there, too! The first panel is a bit of a callback to the 7/3/07 strip, in which Cannon falls out of the school upon leaving the front doors. I know it's not practical for a school to float in the air, but I still like the effect, and it seems that any superhero should be able to reach a door a mere twelve feet in the air. Getting down, apparently, is harder... unless you have wings, or the strength to pull of a "superhero landing". Hey, just reminding you that there's still a month left in my contest, and EVERYONE who enters gets a prize! Just in case you forgot...
  5. theheroesofcrash.com Ouch. Enticia would not take that as a compliment if she could hear that comment. And she'd probably have some qualms about ever being called "foxy" again. Now, I'll say this: I won't make fun of Megan Fox as a person. I don't know much about her personally. But as an actress, she's pretty subpar. She doesn't show much expression in her roles. I've heard some people argue that that's just how her face looks, but I disagree; I've seen her show emotion in interviews. Specifically when she did the first Ninja Turtles movie and she said how much she loved The Secret of the Ooze and how she had a childhood crush on Michelangelo. She was really, visibly jubilant about that, and I have to respect her taste there.Of course, when they asked her if she'd REALLY patched things up with Michael Bay, her gaze dropped, her voice became monotone, and she kept blinking as she said that they were "all good friends now". Yeah, not good at acting, not good at lying, and not good at portraying April O'Neil. But she still deserves better than having to put up with Michael Bay. Yeesh. Anyway, I digress. I used some copy/paste in the Sketch layer for the top two panels, but made the effort to make sure that Unk and Enticia's arms switched sides. I'm pretty pleased with Jackknife's expression in that last panel, as well.
  6. theheroesofcrash.com Enticia's trying to be a better person. She really is. But those brownies do NOT make it easy. When I first started drawing Enticia's boyfriend harem as featureless figures, it wasn't out of sheer laziness (although that was the primary reason). Part of it was because I hadn't decided who was actually IN her harem at the time. While I do have a good chunk of her harem figured out now, I must admit that I like the symbolic notion of her boyfriends practically being a part of the background, which is pretty telling about her relationship with them...! By the way, it's hard to tell, but Bastion has a very slight, very subtle, purple tinge to him in that last panel, in order to show that he's still part of the harem, even if he does stand out to Enticia a lot more. I'm trying to put my characters in more dramatic poses by using exaggerated lines of action; I'm pretty happy with how it turned out in panel #2.
  7. Hey, I haven't written one of these in a while.

    Recalling my post that had an interrobang in it, and wondering about Ctrl+C/V and how it transfers font.

    I have a custom font for my conlang, and I'm just gonna do a test or two...

     

    eve kibe bali riul

    It lives!

    FYI, the literal font-removal is "eve kibe bali riul"

  8. theheroesofcrash.com Well, folks, at the time that I'm typing this, it's in the wee small hours of the morning on Christmas Eve! By sundown it'll be Chanukkah, by tomorrow it'll be Christmas, and the day after that is Kwanzaa! There's so many wonderful holidays this weekend, and - especially in times like these where there's a lot of outspoken hatred and prejudice - it's important that we take the time to celebrate and appreciate both what makes us different AND what we share in common. We all have different, beautiful ways of celebrating the same values of love and goodwill towards others, and we should do our best to show that throughout the year. So whether you celebrate none, one, or many of the holidays occurring this December, know that I wish you a happy and safe holiday season. I know I've had Muppets on the brain a bit lately (You've seen my Daily Drawings, right?), but I honestly thought that this quote was a good one to use; despite being from a Christmas song, it reaches out to people of all faiths. Jim Henson was a man who appreciated diversity and sought to give people an idea of what a peaceful world could be like through educational shows like Sesame Street or the social commentary of Fraggle Rock, so it seems more than appropriate to use his words for this filler. Wishing you all Happy Holidays! Canonical comics return in January! :-)
  9. theheroesofcrash.com I typically don't like to get into politics on my own site; I like to think of this comic an escape from the frustrations of the real world, and into the land of stories and fantasy. But the current situation needs to be addressed. This election is a big one, and it may not be farfetched to say that the state of the world hangs in the balance. I understand that many people are disappointed with all the choices we have. Clinton had that e-mail scandal. Johnson has shown in interviews that he doesn't know what certain government departments do, nor is he aware of current events in other countries. Stein also demonstrates a lack of knowledge of how government works, and - despite being a doctor - would not stand up for vaccinations so as not to dissuade anti-vaccination voters. And then there's Trump. Oy vey, there's Trump. Fact-checking website Politifact's scorecard for Donald Trump rates 70% of his statements as Mostly False or worse (19% are rated as Mostly False, 34% as False, and 17% as Pants on Fire), compared to 26% for Hillary (14% Mostly False, 10% False, and 2% Pants on Fire). Trump has been recorded making statements that insult or belittle women, African-Americans, Mexicans, Muslims, Jewish people, POW veterans, people with disabilities, and more. He wants to build a wall under the false pretense that most immigrants are criminals - a wall that not only will cost a ridiculous amount of money to build and maintain (that he can't make Mexico pay for), but will also probably result in MORE illegal immigrants due to overstaying their visas. He has encouraged violence at his rallies, bullies at polling locations, and racism nationwide. And finally, he's not all that good a businessman, as he owes his fortune to exploiting loopholes in bankruptcy law - a skill that cannot carry over to helping our own economy - and he is known for ripping off people in his business deals. Trump is, to put it simply, a con man. The message of my comic has always been that anyone has the potential to be a hero, even if they aren't perfect. All you need to do to be a hero is to fight injustice in some form, and Trump is injustice incarnate. Trump is hatred, racism, bigotry, violence, wrath, ignorance, greed, and pride, all wrapped up in one orange-painted package. Hillary may not be the candidate that we deserve, but she may be the one we need. You can be a hero, too, by voting for her this November. Please. On the lighter side of things, I'm pleased with Enticia and Titanium Maiden's costumes (as Patty from the new Ghostbusters and Wendy from Gravity Falls, respectively). Not only are both of them based on paranormal pop culture, but they're both based on something we've seen this year. Between my three characters, it's like a nice little time capsule for 2016. Oh, and if you're wondering why the haunted house patrons aren't regular cast members from my comic, it's because I wanted to keep my characters' ages vague, so they may not be old enough to vote. They are all - to borrow an expression from Homestar Runner - "Someteen" years old. Wishing you all a Happy Halloween, and the best of luck this coming election day.
  10. In panel #3, Enticia's referring to what took place in comics #305 and #306 (During the storyline "Even a Rose Has its Thorns"). I like the background for that panel, even though it's similar to something I did once for Comic #423 (Fight at the Museum), but my favorite panel has got to be the last one. I had fun playing with Manga Studio's tools to make a blur effect, and I think I pulled it off well. What do you think? P.S.: HAVE YOU ENTERED MY ART CONTEST YET?!
  11. http://theheroesofcrash.com There's some things that we just accept as being realistic within the laws of fictitious universes. For example, we accept that any character within the Looney Tunes universe can naturally be squashed and stretched, whereas doing the same requires superpowers in the Marvel universe. Sometimes we're aware that something is realistic only within the confines of fiction... other times, not so much (Just look at all the people who think that Twilight and most romantic comedies give a fully accurate portrayal as to how real relationships work). With today's comic, I want to bring attention to a cartoon trope that people tend to overlook: the brainiac who knows EVERYTHING about science. You know how in cartoons and comics, you'll come across brainy types whose scientific knowledge can solve pretty much any problem? Whether you need a computer hacked, a robot disassembled, a cure for were-lizard venom, a rocketship flown, or an anti-gravity device built... they can do it. What truly makes this unrealistic isn't simply the science-fiction stuff they can do, but also the fact that they possess skills in every area of science... even those that aren't really closely related. Most scientists stick to one or a few "-ologies", be it biology, technology, geology, archaeology, zoology, etc. Yet somehow, the typical cartoon scientist is a jack of all trades, AND a master of all. Belt Boy... not so much. Belt Boy's knowledge lies mostly in designing, programming, and building technology; he built his utility belt, his lab, and B.O.N.N.I.E. with only some gruntwork assistance from Cannon to help him. Biology, on the other hand, is not as familiar a subject to him. He does know a bit more than most people, having studied it a bit to program Cannon's prosthetic hand. But his biological knowledge still isn't enough to make programming a DNA analyzer a quick fix, which is why he's still having trouble. By the way, the title of today's strip and the cover of his book are gag references to strip #408, which was entitled "He Should Read 'Evil Rants for Pinheads'."
