Pt. 4: You're here, dimwit
Pt. 5: lana2452.deviantart.com/art/So…
Hoping to get a better title for this one up soon.
You would not believe how long this took me to make. Usually, I can crank out these cute little cartoons quickly, but usually then, its four or so panels with a max of two characters per frame, so this... My hands are sore. This was genuinely funny to me when I scripted it out and while I was drawing it, but I started it at ten am today and I've only stopped to eat or go to the bathroom since then, if that gives you an idea of just how long this took me to do. I'm a hardcore comic-artist. So because I've been immersed in this so long, I'm not sure if its funny any more... that, and I'm really tired. I'm sorry for complaining so much, anyways. The joke might get a little stale towards the end- I just wanted to wrap it up.
ITS PART FOUR AND I AM JUST NOW DRAWING MAKA. How odd is that? I had to up the usual cuteness factor I draw her with, because of that adorable uniform. If I had thought of the basis for this idea alone (
helped me out) this would basically become my excuse to draw Maka in that outfit, because she's just too cute... I love you Maka! XD But really... it looks nice on her. I experimented with the hairstyle a little, because when I sketched this first, the pigtails didn't really work as well as I had hoped for. So an odd sort of ponytail. Sweet. Kid's outfit however- that sucks. I was honestly running out of outfits featured in official manga or anime promos that I hadn't already put him in. Thankfully, I managed to pull out this one from a random doodle Ohkubu did as a filler for Soul Eater Manga Volume 2 or something. But Blackstar... I was waiting to draw him in this for a while! I love this outfit, even though it added extra time to draw. Details suck.
Blackstar tells jokes not only about Chuck Norris, but about him pulling an anime-Asura and exploding upon punch. Sounds about right. Kid is sitting there regretting agreeing to this. He blushes practically the entire strip. Why do I like drawing blush so much? Special thanks to Patty for buying a giant stuffed giraffe. It must look pretty epic, to have to been expensive enough to force the girls to get part-time jobs. If it hadn't been for Patty and that giraffe, I wouldn't have had an excuse to draw the Deathbucks uniform.
I feel the need to discuss the universe of where this comic takes place, since I will keep serializing it even after the "Kid Asks Maka Out" part finishes. Basically, Kid has an extreme case of the crushies on Maka, because I find it easier to milk comedy from something like that. Maka may or may not like him back, but if she does, she's either really casual about it or figures there are better ways to spend her time than oogling over the guy she likes. She's also kind of oblivious to the fact that Kid likes her. Tsubaki, Liz, and Crona are oblivious as well, I want Patty to ship it, Soul to cockblock it, and I'm not quite sure whether I want Blackstar to be the ultimate cockblock or the ultimate shipper to this... maybe both.
My rant on this is still decently long, buy not as long as I expected it to be, considering I basically wasted a day making this strip. Eh. I'm tired... So I'm going to sleep now, and when I wake up, I'd better get a ton of faves and watches (because you know you want it. *wriggles eyebrows*) and comments arguing whether you think Blackstar is more of a cockblocker or a shipper. I would also like suggestions for a better name for this comic, because "Frustratingly Adorable" does not seem good enough. So... comment. Now.
