Because No One Asked For It!

Postby Matt Trepal on Mon Jan 29, 2001 5:05 am

Heh.<P>That's right, due to a lack of popular demand, I'm posting the two alternate 1/30/01 strips, complete with commentary.<P>Before we begin, I'd like to say that I worked pretty hard on these, since they involve a little more anatomy than I'm used to drawing. Getting the female form down turned out to be rather difficult, and my copy of <B>How To Draw Comics The Marvel Way</B> was not much help, so I had to <strike>visit lots of strip bars</strike>, er <strike>view lots of porn sites</strike>, no no, <I>do lots of research!</I> Yeah, that's it. Research.<P>So, ladies and gentlemen, hold on to your hats and prepare for an experience you won't forget, and probably will never forgive yourself for.<P>There are no refunds.<P>Caleb, keep your hands where I can see 'em.<P>Alternate strip #1:
<IMG SRC="http://www.erie.net/~mtrepal2/fcecomic/pinup2.GIF"> <P>I really like this one, and I'm seriously considering using it as a T-shirt, should I ever actually decide to offer crap for you to buy. I'd have to redo it, though, to get her hair and tail complete, and I really don't like the way her right foot looks. Plus, there's that irritating smirk. Still, I think it's pretty damn good, considering. I'm currently using this one as my wallpaper.
.<P>.<P>.<P>.<P>.<P>Ready?<P>.<P>.<P>.<P>Alternate strip #2:<P> <IMG SRC="http://www.erie.net/~mtrepal2/fcecomic/pinup3.GIF"> <P> <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/eek.gif"> <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/eek.gif"> <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/eek.gif"> <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/eek.gif"><P>Yeah, that's right. Breasts. <I>Naked</I> breasts.<P>Y'know, when I started <B>Fight Cast Or Evade</B> I didn't actually think I'd draw something like this, but there it is. I have all sorts of other problems with this one. I don't like Portia's expression or the way her hair falls, and I'm not sure she could actually twist like that. I also think her body is out of proportion. It's way too long from where it bends to where her hips begin. Bleah.<P>Anyway, there they are.<P>Whadaya think?<P>[This message has been edited by Matt Trepal (edited 01-29-2001).]<P>[This message has been edited by Matt Trepal (edited 01-29-2001).]<p>[This message has been edited by Matt Trepal (edited 01-29-2001).]

You little rascal. Forget the P.S. on the last novel from Grant Creek. BTW (see how I pick up the lingo) I was just trying to get that burning file folder to go nuclear.

Okay I think I'm going to be the wierd one here. Both are drawn great, but the first one had much more alluring properties. Has a very mysterious feel behind that art. Great sly looking expression.<P>As for the second one, well, it's just erm... Porn?

Well, I liked the first one... <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/biggrin.gif"> But please tell me the second one was just a joke, oh <B>PLEASE</B> tell me it was just a joke <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/wink.gif"><P>~Cheetah-Son

I don't know that I'd call it porn, exactly, although it's pointing in that direction.<P>Tell you what, if I ever draw anything more explicit that this, you can come and chop my hands off, okay? <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/wink.gif"><P>Generally positive comments, though....

Matt, I have to say I liked the first one, even better than the one you posted. It just has more a centerfold type feel to it. Still great work!<P>*blink*<P>Ok, Matt's does a skunk in various poses only one really what I would call naughty. While we at PDI draw an absolutely EVILLE! picture of our adaptation of Panta err Santa Clause and his reindeer... hehe I still like those.<P>*cough*<P>Point being, why does Matt get all the threats?! I want some threats too damnit!<P>*pulls out his machete*<P>And if I don't get them soon... you'll all suffer

I don't know that I've gotten <I>threats</I>, exactly. Just some readers expressing concern. <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/wink.gif"> And you're right, I didn't produce anything that you wouldn't find in an exhibition of the work of "Drawing the Human Form" students.<P>As for why I've gotten comments on these while your stuff has passed unmolested (so to speak), I don't know. Maybe it's time I peruse your galleries. I'm sure I could work up some righteous indignation to express.
