  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. theheroesofcrash.com ...then who can you trust? Well, you can trust me when I tell you that Dino-Mo isn't going to take Belt Boy and Sugar Rush's actions lightly...! While I'm trying to make most of my characters more proportionally consistent, I'm less concerned about doing so with Gelatin Boy. I feel like it reinforces the fact that he's a blob of gelataneous goo, capable of squashing and stretching even more than my already-toony characters. Plus it makes it easier to play with his expressions, which is helpful when he doesn't have visible eyes.
  4. 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"

  5. theheroesofcrash.com We cut away from Belt Boy to discover the ramifications of his earlier actions. Or inactions. Or Sugar Rush's actions...? Well, whatever; Belt Boy wasn't there, and Gelatin Boy got thrown in the trash quicker than Trump's campaign promises (Not that they were good promises to begin with). Speaking of Trump, I hope that you contacted the electoral college before they officially vote on Monday (Using the e-mail list at AskTheElectors.org or the contact info at FlipThe37.blogspot.com like I've been suggesting all this past week on Tumblr and Facebook). And if you're reading this after Monday... well I hope Trump ALSO got thrown out quicker than his aforementioned campaign promises. Seriously, 2016 owes us this after such a nationally-despised year.
  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!).
  7. theheroesofcrash.com No surprise, but this comic was a LOT of fun to draw. While I am trying to do more realistic anatomy, being able to show off my characters' more toony side is a lot of fun to draw, and lends itself to better comedy. At one point, I was going to have Belt Boy merely raise his hand in that last panel, but I decided to exaggerate it and have him stand dramatically on the desk. I think it's funnier, and it fits with BB's personality rather well. The backgrounds were a lot of fun as well. The last panel was originally going to be gold, but it looked too similar to the orange panel above it. I decided on blue to contrast with the previous two panels, and to suggest that Belt Boy's psyche got a bit of relief from not holding in his heroic ambitions (although that relief will no doubt be short-lived!). The first panel is a callback to Belt Boy's first meeting Enticia; she tried to seduce him with her powers, but Belt Boy was focused on getting to class on time, and everything was colored in grayscale save for the clock to emphasize his focus. This time around, Belt Boy is focusing on his own problems, which is why he's the only thing in color. And yes, that IS a Taz-Mania reference in the first panel.
  8. http://theheroesofcrash.com Belt Boy's getting a little tired of getting grabbed by the arm and yanked off-panel... and Cannon's not even remotely tired of bragging about his victory against Jackknife. BTW, if you saw my Daily Drawing for Friday 9/23, you realized that I took a LOT longer drawing this than I meant to, as I had done most of the inking in a "sketch" layer. Drawing in the wrong layer is the bane of digital artists everywhere. Addressing this comic's title... I know I tend to make fun of Michael Bay, but I can't help but wonder if Zack Snyder's worse. Snyder's like what Bay would be if he tried to be serious. Say what you will about Bay's lack of talent, over-inflated ego, and terrible treatment of women (It's all true), but at least he gets that there's an element of silliness to the imaginary worlds of the Transformers and Ninja Turtles (not that he harnesses it effectively, but at least he acknowledges that it's there). Snyder, conversely, denounced She-Hulk and the Martian Manhunter as legit superheroes, calling She-Hulk essentially a trophy for the male power fantasy that is the Hulk (If he knew comics, he'd know that they're cousins, so... EW. NO.), and Martian Manhunter a stupid character (And yet he considers Aquaman to be fine). Plus, despite getting some elements of Batman V Superman, let's face facts: he got some elements very very wrong (I highly recommend watching the Nostalgia Critic review). This comic, thankfully, is silly and colorful and everything that Snyder is not. And I'm darn proud of it.
  9. Well, it's been a while, due to my trip to Texas (and subsequent post-vacation recovery), but fillers are done, and it's back to the story! The punchline of today's comic actually harkens back to some commentary for the 4/30/16 comic, where I mentioned Sugar Rush's previous attempt at tasting her dessert-like teammate. Of course, Gelatin Boy is half gelatin, half boy, and he tastes like a combination of the two. Not very appetizing. Also, not sure if I mentioned this before, but Sugar Rush won't have any digestive problems with those erasers; she's got a cast-iron stomach, and has eaten stranger things before. Now if they were pencils, they'd probably be sitting in her stomach like lead! Buh-DUM-tch!
  10. theheroesofcrash.com While Gelatin Boy is questioning Sugar Rush's common sense, it prompts me to consider the notion that common sense isn't so common. In college, I studied Gardner's Theory of Multiple Intelligences; simply put, it's the idea that there's different kinds of smarts, like book-smarts, people-smarts, body-smarts, etc. Everyone is smart, just in different ways. While my experiences in the realm of education taught me that everyone can be smart, my experiences in working retail taught me that the opposite is also true: everyone can be a bonehead sometimes. Just as we all have our mental strengths, we all have our weaknesses, too. So while Gardner has his theory of multiple intelligences, let me take this moment to call dibs on Winthrop's Theory of Multiple Stupidities (Although I'll likely change the name to something less offensive, but equally catchy and expedient). It's true of real people, and people in my comic... especially when it comes to social cues. Cannon doesn't know when to keep his mouth shut, Sugar Rush acts (and eats) before she thinks, and Belt Boy... well, you could probably write a book on the stuff he doesn't grasp. So if everyone's got these mental Achilles' heels, then perhaps what one person considers common sense may not be quite so obvious to someone else...? Maybe that's why it's only "common" sense instead of unanimous sense: because it's not obvious to everyone. But that's just a theory. A BRAIN THEORY! Thanks for reading! (All apologies to MatPat for that last joke!)
  11. theheroesofcrash.com Seems that Gelatin Boy and Jackknife HAVE crossed paths... and Jackknife is looking pretty cross, himself! Also, in case anyone's wondering: no, Gelatin Boy is not sweating away his mass. Because fiction. Much like an onion or an ogre, this strip has many layers. I used seperate layers for the background, the posters, and the translucent "whoosh lines" in panel 3. I don't like copy/pasting in my comics, but I did with the poster, although I made it a different color in each picture.
  12. theheroesofcrash.com Seems that Belt Boy's caught in the middle of another team's problems... but that's par for the course for him today. Will Gelatin Boy remain unbullied for the rest of the day? Or will Jackknife best our stressed-out hero? Stay tuned, folks! I'm really happy with the lower-left panel. Foreshortening is one of my problem areas in terms of my art, and I've been working on it. There's a method of drawing your character in boxes to keep him/her in proportion, and it seems to work for me. I also like the backgrounds I used here; Dino-Mo's background is meant to remind you of a blazing fire, whereas Belt Boy's background is strongly anime-inspired. That anime influence stuck out at me as I was creating it; my art style has shifted away from anime/manga and more towards western retro styles, but it still incorporates elements of both.
  13. theheroesofcrash.com As I've grown as a writer, I've been worried about making Belt Boy (and his relationship with Titanium Maiden) seem too perfect, like a Mary Sue. Perfect is not funny. It's boring. Trying to be perfect - and failing - is funny and relateable, and in case you haven't guessed, that's the concept behind this storyline. Belt Boy always means well, but one thing I learned from looking back on my high school days is that even well-meaning people can be obnoxious, especially when they're teenagers who are still learning more complex social and moral rules. Belt Boy has a problem that I had in high school (and that, to some degree, I still deal with), and that's being oblivious. While not the worst character flaw to have, it can make some people feel offended, ignored, or unimportant when you don't pay attention to them or prioritize other things over them. Conflict arises in stories where one character's wants/needs conflict with another's; in this instance, Belt Boy has let his obsession over being perfect take priority over TM and Cannon's wanting to be heard. As Belt Boy's always a do-gooder and being heard is a basic emotional need, these issues seem totally within character for Belt Boy and TM (I hate it when a cartoon character randomly develops a character flaw for one episode just so they can awkwardly cram a moral in there).
  14. theheroesofcrash.com If you saw my 6/21 Daily Drawing, you probably know all about HiveMind. If not (or if you need a refresher), here's some info on her: The world is a diverse place, but if you read superhero comics, you might not think that. The comic pages are dominated by white guys, and that's a poor reflection on how the real world is. My comic suffers from the same problem, and I'm looking to add diversity to my comic. With this (and many other ideas I've had floating around) in mind, I created HiveMind - a superheroine who's telepathically linked to a swarm of alien bees. She has Vitiligo - the same skin condition that Michael Jackson had, and that model Winnie Marlow has (HiveMind was inspired by the latter) - in which the skin becomes lighter in blotches, most obviously around the eyes, nose, mouth, and hands. The blotches on her face resemble a stripe - meant to suggest that she has embraced her appearance and sees it as a thing of beauty; the "bee stripes" on her dress are an extention of her appearance, rather than a distraction. In my initial design, the stripe pattern continued down her arms, but I changed that; I want real people to look at HiveMind and say, "She looks like me!", and that couldn't happen if I took too many liberties with her design. By the way, if you can't read the title of Belt Boy's blue book, it's "Writing the Perfect Extra-Credit Essay".
  15. www.theheroesofcrash.com If that exclamation in the last panel came from anyone but Belt Boy, you'd think it was sarcasm. I love it when Belt Boy makes superhero-related exclamations, like "By Superman's Leotard!" back in comic #105. Professor Klawroc is back! You may have noticed that he doesn't have his scimage staff; I assure you, he's got access to it whenever he wants. Magic, and all that. Realistically, in those last two panels, Klawroc's head shouldn't come up past Belt Boy's chest, but I'm employing the same suspension of disbelief that the Muppets use. They're always taller when their legs are off-screen. Otherwise, it'd be a lot more difficult for them to talk to people face-to-face, drive a car, etc.
  16. Seems that TM's not the only one noticing that Belt Boy seems a bit odd today. Not much commentary to add to this picture... except that after having posted lots of Ninja Turtle-themed Daily Drawings to social media* as of late, I wound up coloring the four panels based on the Ninja Turtles' bandanas for a chuckle. Tee-hee! *You HAVE been looking at my Daily Drawings on Twitter, Tumblr, and Facebook, right?
