This one was inspired by a family friend’s story. He once had a tick crawl into his butt and had to get his wife to take it out. I realized while drawing this one that his kids actually know about the comic and might read this. Hi guys!
Welcome and thank you to all the new readers, particularly those who came off the imgur album or the /r/funny post. Glad to have you guys!
Vote incentive this week is a collection of very rough sketches I did recently. Top one is Aiden, but around when he would first be entering college. He had shorter hair back then and was clean-shaven.
Bottom left sheet is genderbent Kaia and Aiden… so… Kai and Ada? On the right is an older Aiden, like middle-aged, I guess. I needed to practice drawing older faces and used him as a guinea pig.
I also have a tiny bit of bad news. Some of you who have been here for a while or read the “about” page may know that I have an issue with getting blisters in my right eye that distort my vision. It’s fine, since I can put an eye patch over my right eye to get rid of the distortion and feel like a badass pirate. However, this week, I got one in my left eye for the first time. It’s no big deal for now because it’s not near the center, so it doesn’t affect the area where I’m focusing, but if I get more of them it might get difficult for me to draw proper proportions.
I’m not blind or anything, so the comics will continue even if my eyes keep fucking me over, but if certain things look weirdly bent or distorted from now on, you’ll know why. It’s not all THAT crippling, but lines look bendy and certain things look smaller than they actually are, which makes it hard to find and correct errors.
