Carol’s actually about the same height as party Elliot, but her shoes add about two inches.

Animated Elliot

One of my goals with this comic was to make Party Elliot's expressions varied and, well, expressive. This was something of a challenge for me, made more difficult by the near static angle and not being all that zoomed in. It was enough of a challenge that, even though I thought I'd have tons to say about it, I just might be too tired to think of anything of interest.

Um... OH! I'm really glad the skirt's frilly in this comic, as it would be difficult to give any real impression of movement if it wasn't without zooming out more. I don't know if it's obvious that Party Elliot is hopping (or bouncing, as it were) in that last panel, but if it was apparent to anyone, I'm sure that frilly skirt helped.

I actually originally pictured Elliot running around more while talking to Carol, but the microphone sort of fixed her in place. It's probably for the best, however. I think it's one of those basic obligations when talking to a reporter that you don't spread out your arms like wings and run away. They'd probably decide to talk to someone else at that point.
