I think Ichabod poked large animals and hives of stinging insects a lot as a child.

THERE. The page is finally finished for real, complete with Voting Incentive! Now I can finally relax... and start drawing the NEXT update that's due in less than 24 hours. *head desk*

Anyway, if you caught the half-finished update, you'll notice that the dialog's rather different this time. Turns out, wording is hard to do well when you haven't slept in a day, so I went back and revised a few things.

As always, I'm not entirely happy with the art, but there wasn't time to do any more with it (I really wish I'd put SOMETHING in the background other than white void). Avatar's expression in the last panel is a happy accident, though. Originally, I'd planned for the panel to only show Ichabod and Layla, all dramatic close-up like. But I drew them too far apart (again, no time to re-draw) and had to slip Avatar in the middle last second. I kind of botched the eyes and just ran with it, giving her that glare... and it TOTALLY works. She's known Ichabod long enough to justify a look of "Not again. Why do you always have to be like this?"

And speaking of which... Ichabod's kind of a jerk, isn't he?

I can imagine Layla's last answer being: "Yes! And I was very good at it, too!"

I'm wondering if I should be apologising for not commenting on this page earlier... Probably not. Things come up, I miss a webcomic update that was apparently unfinished anyway...

In THE FUTURE, all labels on cans will change dynamically, sensing the current situation.

I take it the first speech bubble is the one changed? Or were there also others?


Incentive: He's rather nervous there, but then I imagine anyone would be in that situation. (Of course, characters such as Avatar or Stilez wouldn't be in that situation)

Ichabod's first line was the biggest change, but Layla's first line was altered as well. I briefly considered putting the rough draft of Photobucket so people could see the Before and After... but the changes aren't interesting enough to warrant it. Just clunkly, awkwars dialog made clearer

Also, I bet if we wait long enough, the can will start advertising other products from that company. "Almost done? You should try Drinkable Things in a Bag next time!"
