Ooh, the accidentally forward type! Makes for easily interesting situations. ;P
Also, Norman looks more like a pole in panel 6. x3
Question - what is the age difference of these two? o3o;

ahaha, she is! she is such a loving person, she forgets that not everyone feels the same as her :XD:

and they aren't that far apart age wise. Jamie is older at 26 [link] , and Norman is 25 [link] :) I always see characters where the female is young, 18, and blonde, so I decided to toss that all out the window. Plus she is heavilly based off my wife, who is almost the same age, and looks a lot like her :D

Norman was heavilly based off me, so I guessed it fitting to give him my age :)

Aw, poor girl! She's hard not to like, though. ;)

Oh, I see. Is she really short or is Norman really tall? Haha, that's cute! Dymentia (hehe I see you know her) was probably based on me a bit, at least her personality. (Not her looks. XD) I made her a few years ago, she's the oldest character of mine that I kept. I didn't mean to model her after me, but everyone says I'm a lot like Dymentia.

Yeah, almost all of my characters are similar to my age! It's easier to relate to them that way.

lol, thats exactly what I was going for! she has been through a few design changes (physical and writing) to get my final vision, but she has always been a sweetheart :aww:

oh it's a little of both. Jamie is a small woman, about 5'4, and norman is very tall, like 6'2, lol! but she looks really tiny compared to everyone else, like this, lol [link]

how old is dymentia? creation wise. I think it is fun to see where they come from, and how they grow with us. in an odd sort of way, they are like "children" :giggle:

Good, good! You achieved it well, she seems strange at first, but then you know more about her and she's very sweet. A little misunderstood in the beginning, but very very sweet! Lol she was always a sweetheart, but Loren still thought she was a bitch? :XD:

Pshaw 5'4" is average. (I am that size. >3>) Lol in the lineup she is so puny! Let's hope nobody tries to dogpile her.
Dymentia is either 4'9" or 4'11", I need to find out how tall my friends are that are the same size as Dymentia. Courtnee is 5'4" and Alice and Jonah are 6'2". eue;;

Ohh jeez, let's see. I think I made her before middle school.. She is probably about.. 4-5 years old? And yes, that is very true. She has grown a lot as a character, and I think so too - they are like our children! That's why I'm so protective of them. ^^; My morbid friend jokes about shooting my characters. I punch the crap out of him when he says that. ono9

well it's a long story why he hates her, but I will keep it short if I can :XD:

when I first made the comic, it was Norman, Paunch, and Figs being guys :roll: video game jokes, no story, thats about it. I reazlied I was dangerously close to the territory of every OTHER webcomic in existence, and decided to make a story. after a while, I asked Loren to join me and edit my text (he's an english major, yay!) and he saw problems, as did I, of the story not going anywhere.

I made new characters, but one thing was missing: a woman. Nothing propels males to do what they do like a female, so I created jamie in my wifes image, since norman is heavilly based off me. Putting her in the comic rocketed the story forward, and all was good :)

as I made comic after comic, the conflict was simple: Jamie was normans old friend and crush who came back to town to reunite with him. Paunch was jealous, he saw someone coming into his life and disrupting his circle of friends, and proceeded to try and get rid of jamie by being a pain in the ass. sound unfunny? because it was! it was terrible. Norman was weak, paucnh was an ass, and figs was a bigger ass. but jamie was a bitch, spending most of her time bertaing paunch and asking norman why he tolerated him.

we decided to cancel the run, and jamie was the box we buried it in :( he blamed her for the comics demise, as each comic seemed to be "paunch does something dumb, jamie gets pissed, norman consoles jamie" and I admit, she ruined it. so when I made the second run (what you see now) Loren was less of a presence, but he still hated the idea of jamie. I changed her into some random nerd girl who shows up out of the blue and falls in love with norman at first sight. he hated it, I loved it, so I did it anyways. I wanted her to be the linchpin that brought everyone together with love and friendship, and that is now what she is doing :aww: it just took a while

we were both shocked to see how immensley popular she was too! :faint: Loren will never admit that he hated her, especially since she dominates the fan base, but still, she is a good example of how change can make or break a seires :)

*was much longer than I expected to write, sorry ^^;*

ahaha, 5'4? I guess I am so used to being tall! I am 6'1, so it is normal to me :) but ahaha your friend sounds silly! if he ever makes characters, threaten them, and then we will see how he feels ;)
