Mengeloid!

Christ i love your brush work! It's so fuckin' bonkers! I've been drawing almost exclusively with a brush lately & it's so liberating from the damn straight line. It's also SO fast! It's kind of crazy how fast i can go with it. I thought i was fast before. This is just getting obscene. It was a funny comic also, i was hoping there'd be a bite out of the balloon.

You make the most goddamn crazier than a shit house rat (the most insane kind of rats out there!) cartoons I've ever seen, and yes that is a compliment! Beautiful ink work as ever. I came away from the story thinking the mengeloid is so... er... special... that he didn't even realize his balloon popped but rather imagined the thing still floating with a bite taken out of it, because that would make perfect sense to a mengeloid.

Very cool. Happy snotty little girl… All her different expressions work well with the narrative. I’ve tried similar effects as yours, Paelo, for the gutter space three months ago. I used white lines (you used white dots). I had a similar result actually. I think there still something to solve: The very square images could be a bit curvier (I have the same problem)?

More proof that true stupidity can trump the laws of nature any time!

Thanks guys!

Sean:since the dip pens i used for most of my youth started to suck really bad & i was forced to take up brush, i've become a brush evangelist, they take a while to get accustomed to, but once you do, nothing is as exppresive and so.fucking.fast as brushes

Agaühin: i assembled this comic on Photoshop, the very rigid white panels are panels delineated with the Rectangular Marquee tool, you could free hand the panels borders and drop 'em on a black background

Fufu: Stupidity has moved more mountains than Faith & Greed combined.

Sure you can, but I’ve never tried. I don't know what it would look like.
