Um, yeah, the final draft will have a big flashy explody effect, but I have no idea how long it'll take to finish, so in the meantime enjoy an even rougher draft than usual.

For context, I've really been scrambling to finish the last couple of Animazement comics over at Conventional Wisdom before the end of this week, since that's when Otakon is. Now, anyone who's been following me elsewhere has already heard I'm not going to Otakon this year (for the first time in a decade) but I've yet to make an official announcement on the comic itself, because I wanted to finish up the AZ comics first... and suddenly that deadline is approaching REAL fast. Hence the being a bit more frazzled than usual.

In the meantime, though, not only is there a new TWC Voting Incentive up, but that new Patreon blog that's not a Character Soundtrack is finally finished and posted too! ...which brings me to something kinda odd.

Normally, this would be the part where I not-so-subtly urge anyone who isn't already a patron to start pledging a few dollars so I can be slightly less broke. That's still a thing I'd like, but there's also something else I could use some help with. It's come to my belated attention (sorry about that) that there's some weirdness going on where not everyone has access to everything their level of donation ought to unlock, and I'm not really sure what to do about it. For one thing, I'm at a real disadvantage since I can't actually afford to donate to anyone ELSE, so I have no idea what all this stuff looks like from ya'll's end. But what's worse, there's just a very limited pool of examples to work with in finding a pattern. The more people are donating, the easier it'll hopefully be to pinpoint what's going on and do something about it. So if you haven't already, I'd appreciate it even more than usual if you started donating at least $2, and let me know if there's anything you should have access to that's still locked. Heck, even if you're ALREADY donating, I'd still appreciate it if you poked around a bit and let me know if anything seems amiss. Thanks, and sorry again for the trouble!

EDIT: See, THIS is why it can be a good idea to go ahead and post the rough draft. Since my preferred method of using color gradients for lighting effects doesn't really translate to my ongoing experiments with animated effects, I decided to play around with crosshatching instead. For completely bling fumbling around, I think it turned out as a decent first try... but MAN was it time consuming. And I mean both in terms of when I was actually doing it right, AND all the times I realized I'd messed up and needed to backtrack. Cos that happened a LOT.

It's an absolute shame people fail to catch pictures of Tabitha when she's going full 'FOR SCIENCE!!!' Like this glorious example here.

@ Incentive: ...how the H**K do you expect to stick Stillez in a new costume, let alone one with Goggles, for more than five minutes?

@ Comic: Honestly, I believe that you may be the 327th Mad Scientist to have unlocked the pure destructive potential of afternoon tea, and will be the 251st to put down the weapon and completely forget about using it ever again. The other 76 either killed themselves with it, got killed by what they were weaponizing it against, or attempted to use it further only to discover that the pure destructive potential of afternoon tea has surprisingly limited utility.

That is, of course, only counting Mad Scientists (and ignoring Mad Social Scientists). Politicians, Diplomats, Major Business Owners and many other such influential people already know the pure destructive potential of afternoon tea, and actively attempt to direct it to be utilized for purposes beneficial to themselves and/or the "causes" they are currently actively attempting to promote. And Mad Social Scientists know about the pure destructive potential of afternoon tea, but have yet to find a way to direct it to power their Moving Mazes or to have it produce more afternoon tea to become infinitely renewable energy.
