I Just finished Strip 15 and it only took me the better part of 3 weeks! Okay, still terrible, but I'm making the strip more of my focus and I'm really hoping to start producing one strip a week. In this strip Chudd and Trog's bad day continues. I'm not very happy with the first panel illustration, Buttery just looks wonky to me. Well, as wonky as a made up cartoon mouse can look to someone. However, I kind of dig the other three panel illustrations. After this post I'm going to watch a tutorial on character design and see if there's a way I can improve my toons. It does feel kind of good having the twins together again too.
Anyways, I'm jumping right into strip 16 and it is a real goal of mine to have it done by next Saturday (the 1st). Also, I just recently started a facebook and Instagram accounts for Atomic Tails. If you're digging the strips, please help support them by following me on social media.
Okay, back to work!
Oh yeah, in the first panel I wanted to put something on the wall that reflects my/Trog's personality. When I can, I play a lot of World of Warcraft (WoW), and so does Trog. Makes sense since he's based on me. I can't say I'm great at the game, but I love the hell out of it. I tried making a mock "For the Horde" poster to hang on Trog's wall, but most of it got blocked out by the text. Oh well, more chances in the future to show off our geek predilections.
