Antarctica Asylum - 9 by ForgetfulRainn Antarctica Asylum - 9 by ForgetfulRainn
"Snowman Solo"

Here's a four squarer - I haven't really settled on any given format so far - and you might want to know that this is in fact new work! The blue print was made in 2006, with everything else, but I actually pencilled, inked, coloured, and digitally edited this strip between yesterday and today (1st and 2nd December 2007). So maybe I haven't given up on Gwen entirely.

This probably isn't the funniest strip I ever made, and yet it's still a lot more fun than the strips I see in my local papers, but basically it was important to flesh out that Nameless Snowman that I love so much. So there he is checking out people, and he's a lusty snowman.

I'm not certain of whether or not this should be rated "Mature" because of language. If anyone knows that I ought to make this "Mature", then let me know!

You've got stupid comics in your local newspaper too?
I sometimes wonder where strips like Snoppy or Calvin and Hobbes went to and who their successor are/will be...

Hell yeah, everything I see in the papers in terms of cartoons are BAD, but really bad; bad as in "not funny, not witty, not even interesting". In fact, the only good stuff in the papers here are... Calvin and Hobbes. Garfield is there too, but I never saw Snoopy in them, sadly.

I meant that they were once in newspapers, but now, at the time they no more exist, there's nothing like "next-generation" strips.

No worthy successors... They're all on dA! Newspapers should look for cartoonists around here; there's lots of excellent cartoonists with talent.

Well there are lots of stupid digital drawers on here.
I didn't want say the digital drawers are all stupid, just them who aren't doing weird. Maybe you know what I wanted to say...
But generally yes. Newspapers should really look for better comic artists. And not newspapers only.

On the other hand I currently couldn't imagine to draw for a newspaper or else. It puts pressure at you and you 've got some borders, your jokes have to be in.

Pressure motivates! Plus, you'd get PAID for it, and considering how a salary would take pressure from me/you/anyone, it could be a cool thing! Hard work, but worthwhile.

Oh, I forgot the money, yes...
Probably that would make the pressure acceptable.

Off the cuff, I would say the snowman is immature for his unwillingness to see the inner beauty of the beings he asseses. Therefore, this should be rated immature. A mature rating is reserved for...uh....others.

And the fact that he doesn't like zoos means something too.. But no-one knows what that is.

don't give up on gwen, Nick - I forgot to adress that issue on the note I sent you - but just don't. If you look at my comment - views ratio, you'll see a gap there as well: generally I get around 30 favs, and like... 400 views. I'd say that is a really big gap! So don't give up! You're not alone! :)

Oh my, your gap is between the views and the favs! You indecent person! My gap is between 5 views and 0 comments! Ahahahaha...

400 views is a lot, it really is, and 30 favs is brilliance and excellency combined. I'm... underground! But it's not that bad, all it takes is one person to like the cartoon and then I'll feel motivated to come up with more. Thanks for the comments!
