Comic for Tuesday, Feb 28, 2012


Posted February 28, 2012 at 1:00 am
This is a cleaned up version of what I'd originally sketched for the second to last panel of the February 24th, 2012 comic. The panel was originally wider than it wound up being, but it was very cluttered, shrunk the last panel, and IMMEDIATELY gave away that all of her examples were from cartoons.

The fighting chibi kitties are a reference to the new Thundercats cartoon (seriously, who wouldn't fight over Cheetara?). The dragon and the pony, of course, reference My Little Pony. The pony is intentionally a little off-model because I'm paranoid like that.

As for the guy and the Cheerleader, it's not meant to reference anything specific, but I was going for a style similar to that of shows like Total Drama Island. This brings up another problem with the imagery, because I have doubts about Akiko having any real interest in a show like that. Thundercats is likely a stretch, too. And while we're at it, who's ever heard of a little girl watching My Little Pony? Honestly.
