Wow, wow, wow, wow, WOW. J’s rant compared to his other rants is like like the mass of a proton compared to the mass of an electron! I have thus responses and other random comments to make as well.
First, after next week, if I don’t get any more comics done, the story will go on hiatus once again. Oh joy.
Second, I love J’s old people. They always make me laugh. Like that Woody Flowers picture. If there’s one thing I need to work on, it’s old people. That and feet. That’s right, feet. Not the measurement unit. Yeesh, that’s like adding another item to a shopping list of 100+ items. But yeah, I got a kick out of produce manager in the second panel.
J’s lines and coloring could use some work… but he never listens to my babbling anyways. I always tell people to draw single lines… and no one ever listnes to my babbling anyways. But anyways.
In response to this comment The traditional robot girl has ears that kind of look like comm antennas. Sometimes they’re fin-like, but the antenna shape is pretty common (I hate to give spoilers for D-san’s stuff, but seeing as it’s already public, this drawing is a pretty good example). Makes no sense, seeing as you could easily hide the antenna internally, somewhere where it’s less vulnerable. (A notable exception is Chobits, which actually has the ears doing something useful.), I had actually thought of the fins being passive heat-sinks recently. Just like how the big fin on Chikara’s Discipline is a heat sink. Great minds (Or lame minds) think alike, or something like that.
As for the picture itself… well, I’m too lazy to explain it, here are two explanatory links for anyone interested – the first is the actual explanation, the second is just a working thread. Yeesh, I’ve been working on this for a week now…
The picture itself is either: a) ana-chronistc, b) a foreshadow. Chikara is depicted with a bunch of dead BKS guards, probably near the outbreak of the revolution. A class R70 space-train is on the elevated track behind her, indicating that pre-Confederate express trains are still in service, though becoming rather old and run down.
BUT ANYWAYS, I’m tired and out of things to say.
