UPDATE: 2/23/11 – I am totally dragging today, folks. Exhausted is more like it. As of 8:10 PM PST, I had three out of four panels inked in. Not colored, not shaded, just inked. I will have the new strip up tomorrow as soon as I can, but I’m calling it quits for the night. Sorry for the delay. ~Rob
So, how do you like the double-sized strip today? Took me a little longer than normal, but I think it came out pretty good.
You might be thinking, “I thought Duke Leo was a simpleton? What gives?” Well, he is a simpleton. An undead simpleton who had his head chopped off, jammed onto a pike, stuck in a jar for weeks, then sold several times as an annoying curiosity until he was abandoned in a cave somewhere by his last owner (who bought him for the price of a dead fish). Even an idiot can start to get a little peeved. That’s how I see it, anyway. Remember also, that this is a guy who thought that dying was something that he could just throw money at and get rid of by buying his “immortality” from an unscrupulous wizard. So there. 🙂
No Monday strip next week, as my girls have the day off and if the weather decides to cooperate, we’re going to the park to play. Shhh, don’t tell them – it’s a surprise!
See you all next Wednesday with a new strip and an excerpt from the Encyclopedia Ardrisia: GIANTS!
