Crackpot Comics

A world of silliness, non sequiturs, and oh yeah, there's art!

While going through some files I found an old prose piece I’d started writing almost two years ago and completely forgotten about.  It was sort of an origin story for my “Heroina: Robot Detective” series, done up in prose rather than sketches/comics so I could get a quick feel for the universe and set down some solid facts without having to worry too much about the visual design.

It’s pretty clunky, definitely in need of editing, but since I didn’t finish it and have no plans to, I figured I’d just post it as-is in case it piqued anyone’s interest.

A really quick Pearl because GOSH, a new half hour of Steven Universe!!
I love her new design, but it bugs me that it’s now different from what we see in the show’s opening credits.  But I’m probably spoiled from growing up with anime where they’d re-cut the intro every time a new main character was added to the roster.

One of the upsides of drawing a very long, largely-dialogue-focused comic is that I’m forced to come up with creative compositions so I don’t wind up with 100 identical panels of people from the waist up looking at each other.

Hello! I really like your birthday Crystal Gem art and I was wondering if I could use it on my birthday cake.

Aw, thank you!  Sure you can, as long as you show me a pic!  :D

5/22 finished, with 11/22 penciled and all but 2/22 thumbnailed!

Scratch me behind the ears, throw me a treat and tell me what a good girl I am?

A couple more progress shots (including a character design comparison, haha).

I’m still not totally sold on this turtle’s design, which is a problem, because he’s actually a major player. Hopefully I’ll be able to refine it before the climax.
