So... how do I explain this... This page... I stared at a blank sheet of paper for about twenty hours, trying and failing to get ANYTHING drawn. I have no idea what even happened, but I was just, like, physically incapable of producing art for the better part of a day. I'd spend a few hours trying in vain to get SOME aspect of what was in my head onto the page, and it'd just be completely unusable scribbles. So I'd give up and walk away for a bit, in hopes that a break would clear out the cobwebs, but then when I came back there'd still be nothing happening. Eventually, after a lot of frustration SEVERAL long naps, things just sort of snapped into place all of a sudden at around 4pm, and all of a sudden I was drawing like normal again. But by the things were apocalyptic levels of late, so tune back in tomorrow for the final version with spooky glowy effects and a new voting incentive and everything that would normally be here if things had gone normally. In the meantime, I'm gonna go somewhere and try to figure out just what the heck was wrong with me yesterday...

EDIT: And then I somehow failed to actually SAVE the web-sized version of this page, and posted it with TUESDAY'S comic without noticing, requiring me to go back and redo the whole thing over again. Seriously, what the CRAP is with me today?

11/11 EDIT: My time management skills continue to be the stuff of legend. I actually had the colored version of the page finished and ready to post Saturday evening. Ut wasn't perfect, I still don't think the multiple-layers-of-glowing effect is quite what I'd envisioned, but it was close enough to quit tinkering and finally post the dang thing... buuuuuuuut I just had to wait until I had the new Voting Incentive finished, so I could post both at the same time. And guess what? I had to backtrack and re-do several part of the Incentive, and completely forgot that the comic hadn't been updated in the process. Thus, it's only hitting the web now, in the wee early hours of Sunday morning. The stuff of legends, I say.

I think it might be that experiment of Tabitha's. Whatever it is, it managed to reach part the fourth wall to make my phone speaker crackle. It also probably ate the alt text for this page, I really hope Tax can deal with it before its reach extends further!

Oh, so THAT'S why all these portals to other dimensions have been opening up in my room!

I know I’ve probably said this before, but I think you need to do some life drawing or something else to shake up the way your brain conceives of your style. Drawing solely in one style makes it, um, grab less neurons, especially since it’s such a cartoony style so it’s not highly integrated with your actual vision. You might also find that your drawing speeds up if you practice from another angle. For me, doing a couple highly realistic drawings in an art class (so, spending more than five hours rendering something with a pencil) was well worth the gains in speed and versatility.

Hope you can see comments on old stuff like this!

Yeah, SmackJeeves gives me a little notification for every comment (the question is more if I notice the update in time for the reply to actually mean anything). I do try to exercise different parts of my brain by doing different stuff, it's just a matter of finding times where I'm far enough ahead of schedule to draw something just for myself rather than something I have to be able to use.

So, really, the trick would be to find ways of incorporating different art styles or mediums INTO the current projects! *begins plotting*
