Ooooh. This is . . . wow. It makes me feel like I'm not even trying. Which I'm not - when was the last time you saw more than an abstract background in 13th Labour?

A seven-page story, so it shouldn't take much of your time.

That's okay. You have different purposes for writing. Are you trying to show off your artistic skills? I get the impression that you just like to draw and want to create something, and like it when people complement it.

Yes! Compliments! I love compliments! And the act of creation does give meaning to my life. I spent too long without writing on my novels much - I think I replaced them with my first web site. And now I've moved on to webcomics. So I might assume that I switch media about every six years. But, yeah, showing off is sort of the way to get compliments. However, I don't think I have much in the way of artistic skills to show off. And certainly not much in the way of comedic skills. The writing might not be so bad . . . if only it were a novel again . . . Maybe I'll do prose again sometime. Instead of the strip. But using the same characters. Just for one storyline. I promise not to get really angsty with it. Although I seem to be giving Jordan a certain amount of angst now . . . I think Jordan's had enough development, and once this storyline is over, I'll demote her to recurring character. I mostly needed to show HER status quo. She won't be changing too much from where she is at the end of this storyline for a while. Still need to get to the status quo of the coven.

Another one. "Smithson." This one has an interesting use of composition, and is truly taking advantage of the web medium. I might aspire to it for a while - am going through a second read through, both to study and because it's a compelling story. And it makes me feel good about some of my coloring. The line art (and composition!) is more its strong point.

Carrots and potatoes? Go for the roots first? The simple things in life?

Incidentally, a non-abstract background is in the last panel in this strip. http://the13labour.comicgen.com/d/20060106.html Not elaborate, but a bit more trying, eh? Maybe I should have left the waterfall larger. It was good. This is Las Vegas. Ridiculously large waterfalls would be in keeping with the atmosphere of teams of juggling penguins.
