shorts by wulfmune shorts by wulfmune
do to some percieved popularity of the "short shorts" comment that mandy made in issue 1, i drew this...

...

it kinda sat around as a pencil doodle for a long time and i'm sick today and just come back from travelling, so i felt like coloring.

...

disclaimer- no, colin does not actually wear short shorts at anytime in the comic series.

....

yeah so believe it or not i was coloring an entirely different backround of city apartments and junk but i didn't like the way it was turning out and it was kinda too much work so i scrapped the whole thing and stuck a big star there and i probably shouldn't be mentioning this because it makes everything about this picture seem lazier but yeah...

[link] <---whoo hoo!

I actually loved the mangapod. Colin had a cute voice and I thought the other voices were good, especially Tory. But that is just me.^^;

.... I think you deserve a medal for drawing this. Colin would certainly win Mandy's friends over by parading around school in those. Colin looks like he forgot to do this laundry and this was the only thing left. :D

I really like Colin's sweatshirt. If you ever get the chance to make Off*Beat merchandise-- please remember the hoodie! It looks very comfortable.

wow, I never thought I'd get to see those infamous "short shorts". and he *does* look good in them. :nod:
as for the background: I usually prefer the all or nothing approach, but since in a way it looks like some kind of pin-up, the minimalistic one works just fine. as a matter of fact this particular choice really works very well with the main image.
I also like how Colin-y he looks in something so untypical for him. ^^

and someone mentioned they'd want this sweater. I'd buy one too. ^^ (though I have no idea which color I'd want. I'm not much into colors. the most colorful I get is an occasional blue or green T-shirt (dark or faded). usually I either wear shades of beige, green-ish beige, shades of grey, black or white - the latter very often under the summer heat, rarely under "normal" temperatures, never on my lower body half. and I'm rambling. I guess I'd take a grey one, maybe blue.)

I feel really tempted to add a custom T-shirt to my list though. like "I like cute boys in short shorts" or "[big letters:]I like short shorts. [small letters:]on (other/cute) boys" or some other variation on the theme. =D

and neutrals are wonderful. there is just something very comfortable about wearing them...down to earth

oh yeah i didn't even need to read your comment to remember the line of Mandy on how Colin would look in short shorts heehee and i avidly remember that that led to Tory being distracted enough to get wacked with a ball.... hahaha

NICE!!!! He looks good in those shorts.......... work it Colin!!!!! :D :D :D :D XD XD

Colin's got some muscle in his legs! XD And I like the star even if it was a decision based on "laziness". ;) Sorry to hear you're sick, hope you didn't get it from me ;_; I just got over my illness.

i figure he's like a bunch of those guys i knew in highschool that somehow had scrawny muscle despite never really doing anything. darn boys. also makes it a little easier to place a shadow somewhere in the vast emptiness of flesh tone.

I love it. He looks like he's just like 'Yeah, that's right, I went there.' or something. And, despite the deep hatred I have of seeing boys in shorts, Colin makes it look good. :heart: I want his jacket because it's green~ *dies*

*dead* Colin in short shorts. That's great. When I saw Mandy's comment in book one and the Tory went "Short shorts?" I did the same thing and now this just makes me grin.

It makes me think he stole Tory's jacket and died it green and added the logo. XD Great, great.

I'm sure Tory....appriciates this picture, maybe? XD

Ahahaha, I honestly was reading the first volume again last night, and still laughed at that comment :giggle:
Teehee, nice outfit, he looks instantly sporty in it!
I think the more simplistic background approach works nicely, it makes it more graphic, like a poster or an advert or something :3
