Another day, another half-finsished comic going up late. Thankfully, this SHOULD be the last one for a while. Once the next week or so is over with and the last Conventional Wisdom of the year is finished, I'll be able to focus on stuff like Far Out There with far fewer distractions. But alas, the final Conventional Wisdom of the year is NOT done yet, and seeing as how I already did ONE this month, you can understand why things are a little slow moving right now. Since the odds were pretty good I'd zonk out before getting the full page done, I figured I've better go ahead and get SOMETHING up. And peaking of things that aren't done yet, I DO have a new Voting Incentive drawn, but I wasn't going to start editing it until I had this page finished, and... well, I think it's pretty obvious, right? Tune in sometime this afternoon for the finished update, and be sure to check Conventional Wisdom later on for the last con update of 2016!

EDIT: Well THAT was a thoroughly frustrating experience. I bet you're all looking forward to my excuse for why the finished version of this page took so long to finish, aren't ya? Well, the truth is... it didn't. I had this whole thing polished up and done by Tuesday evening. So what happened? Good question, I have no idea. After I got the Voting Incentive finished, I went to load the finished page to SmackJeeves but couldn't find the file. It just wasn't there. Now, the simplest explanation is that I just had the mother of all brain farts and never saved the finished version, but I'm ALMOST positive that I remember doing so. Did I space out and save it to the wrong folder, or under the wrong name? Did MangaStudio freak out for a second and not save properly? (that HAS happened before) Am I just remembering thing wrong because, let's face it, it's been a VERY exhausting month? Who knows? The point is, I had to re-color this page a SECOND time, which obviously made things take a lot longer. As is often the case, take two is arguably better than the one that vanished (I took a wildly different approach to coloring the last panel, and I think this one is much more effective) but MAN I wish it didn't require such a frustrating sequence of events to get there.

Stilez needs to go somewhere less fragile so she can get some exercise if she doesn't want to get fat :P

...This is going to end with Stilez, Tax and Avatar with really elaborate hair styles, isn't it?

You know, over the weekend I was with a couple young girls who would have been completely fine with me giving them elaborate hair styles, and I didn't. I'm a bit disappointed, but it's also hard to focus on one child for long enough when there are two demanding your complete attention. And hugs. And a bow and arrow.
