Today, my inner critic decided to have a little conversation with me. It went something like this:
Inner Critic (IC): “Her hair doesn’t work.”
IC: “Jaine’s hair. That hairdo can’t possibly exist in the real world.”
IC: “I mean, did you even LOOK at any women’s hairstyles before you drew her? C’mon! She has bangs swept back under a headband and a bun and a ponytail that seems to start at the base of her head. If you can find anyone in the real world that has a hairdo like that, I’ll give you fifty bucks.”
Me: Well, if you look at it that way, Dhur’s hair can’t exist that way without massive amounts of gel or hairspray.
IC: “Don’t get me started on Orc-boy. Anyways, fix Jaine’s hair. Also, stop talking to yourself, the other parishioners are starting to stare at you.”
So, Jaine will be getting a new ‘do in about a month and a half, as I am working on the strips for the week of January 15, 2010.
OOH! I almost forgot! On Friday, available only on the MeatShield Facebook fan page, I’ll be uploading another picture. This time, it’s a full-body color portrait of Dhur, along with his adventuring dossier. Any comic book fans from the mid-80s will recognize the format as that of The Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe.
See you Friday!
