20100130 (4) – Rewrite. Like the main Ceremony page (-22-), the original page type had been merged – there was so much of it that initial assembly went over Photoshop 5.5’s layer limitation. Good thing they’ve either removed that or made it a much larger! Type has been streamlined – a lot of unnecessary ‘tails’ were ditched. No impact on the story, but the presentation looks cleaner.

As derivative as DCR gets: it seems like Whitehouse got his shirt from the same place King Mob shops at.


2008.04.19 – This page lent itself surprisingly well to cropping – the only major fix is panel two, in which I did some repairs and then jazzed up Curtis’s glasses. Quite an improvement.

Fun fact for you non-Pittsburghers – Ceremony has been at Pegasus since the building that it used to be in shut down. It’s the circle of life, or something.

I’ll bet you thought this was going to be more passed out crazy bits, didn’t you?

Don’t worry, more of that soon enough.

Strip 090, 20070809

Curtis was originally going to say something about parliament banning handguns, but I dropped that bit. He doesn’t care, and neither does Whitehouse. The seriously relevant news bits from that era will be mentioned in due time.

Strip 091, 20070810

In my time at the school in question, there were only a small number of Steves. Their plurality paled in comparison to the Mikes and the Ryans.

Note – Yes, I’ve been spelling “Vae victus” wrong. Play the game – you’ll swear that Simon Templeman is saying “Fey,” not “Vae.”

I’ll fix it in post.

The first Blood Omen game was awesome. Why the next game had to be Jonothon Starsmore: Tomb Raider is beyond me. I’ve heard it’s good, but I didn’t stick around to find out – I gave up on the second crate puzzle. I’m done with crate puzzles.

Strip 092, 20070813

Yay for winged strips actually turning out halfway decent.
