fountain fall lady
I’m drawing cartoons for AOL’s URLesque.com now about internet things!
I’m still somewhat new to deadline drawing, and there are some things I would’ve changed had I an extra half hour there at the end for perfection — for example, there was supposed to be a bar under Cathy in that panel where she’s discussing the fall to indicate that she’s on TV. It was going to say “Developing Story: Fountain Lady Actually Reasonable.” But it was on a separate layer of tracing paper, and I forgot to scan it in! I also would have gone for a lighter purpley-gray background color, to offset the darker values in the rest of the comic.
But this is the nature of deadlines! I got used to this sort of thing when I was blogging on the regular, but cartoonists are a perfectionist bunch, and we usually have the time for that sort of coddling. I think the deadline drawing agrees with me, though, and I look forward to doing these better, faster, and error-free in the future.
