realistic

sometimes i feel like all the love songs i’ve grown up hearing has made me have an unrealistic vision of what a relationship should be like.  i mean, would you really cross a desert or go a thousand years without food or whatever ridiculous feat?  i’d like to think i would, i know right now in my heart i would, but would i really?  it’s like watching a torture scene in a movie and thinking, “hmm, i wonder how long i could hold out before giving in.”  so, not sure what my message would be for this week.  i do know i still love those ballads and would strive for that kind of a relationship.  and why not always strive for the best!

this week i introduce a green couch, a glass coffee table, and a fake face of effort!  also working the perspective a bit too.  what do you all think about the behind the head shots?  good or boring?

  1. Re: striving: I think the story is great this week! Especially like the juxtaposition of saying he’ll go to the farthest reaches, but not, you know, to the coffee table …

    Re: artwork: Like it! Behind-the-head allows for our getting into the heads of the protagonists and trying to see things from their perspectives. The fake strained face in the last panel is a great start – keep up the good work! Only one nit to pick: the coffee table would likely show a corner in the first panel, from what I can see of the spatial difference between the table and the couch in the last panel. Having the corner appear in that first panel might also help push the viewer into the conversation between Park & Aly.

    Thanks for the comic!

    Also, in the first panel they’re at the end of the couch, and on the last they’re in the corner.

  3. ah! great eye!! thanks for the comments, i really appreciate them. i’ll have to pay a bit more attention to their positions when laying out the panels. either that or they quickly move and gain new furniture between panels!
