Todays question was asked to BOTH routes. Senior High answered: "They don't go anywhere, but when it rains in the summer, snowmen body parts fall to the ground." The second answer was that snowmen "hide in deep freezers."
The Elementary was a little more creative. First snowmen go to Canada. Second, snowmen go to Snowman Heaven, and third, all the snowmen hide out in a bunker deep within the earth. I couldn't make this stuff up if I WANTED too.
Have a great day.
I think that this months Falendor went a little quicker because I am getting faster at it and I did choose a different setup for next month...you'll see.
Doodleton "The Queen of Hearts Tea Party" update.
Yesterday I started working on the Alice in Wonderland project on the computer. My first problem was getting the correct scale since Clip Studios ruler settings make pretty much no sense to me, I cheated and scanned a ruler, a lettering scale to be precise, I then laid out the lines, placed the walls and then started placing some guards. I will try to do some more next week. Here are the photos.
Falendor update: Background for this month's story line.
This month I introduced a character that I have been wanting to put in for a while, "Billy Ames."
While he means nothing to most of my readers, he was very important to me. "Bill " Ames was a close family friend of ours for YEARS. We spent Thanksgivings with him when I was very young and it was he who started my passion for trains. He and his wife Bea (the train in my strip is called the Lionel Bea because of her.) gave me my first train set!
And the train from the strip, is actually a real train, well sort of. It my FATHER'S 1939 Lionel Hiawatha Freight train, that he and his Brother Don received for Christmas in 1940. It is in a display case in our dining room.
I just took pictures of it and redrew it in Clip Studio, thats why the line width changes so drastically when the train "magically shrinks" down..one drawing, several shots ;) There is a whole story behind this old train...maybe some other time.
Why put Billy here and now? He was a father figure to me, I know he had his faults but who doesn't? Years later after I moved out on my own, Bill gave me my first air brush. His words when he handed it to me; "Go make great worlds." He meant trains, I went farther. I just wanted to honor him here for believing in me and for giving me a passion that I still have to this day.
Thanks Uncle Bill.
Have a great Sunday everyone!
Last night I finished inking and adding some color to the Alice in Wonderland project in the Law Journal. There are many things that I could keep going on with it but I want to get started on the computer with this to see how to set it up in Clip Studio.
As of this morning, I have posted all of next months Falendor cartoons and all of Doodleton's cartoons as well. Whew! Glad to have that done. Now...now it's time for...
Have a great day all.
So yesterday I got the SECOND pen delivered, a Platinum 3776.
I'm not going to post a You Tube video, because SOMEONE, who shall remain nameless, commented on the LAST pen video that, since it was not me using the pen in the video I shouldn't have posted the video for someone else...point taken. I started using this pen last night on the Alice in Wonderland project that I'm doing and I have to tell you, this thing is FANTASTIC!
Extra Fine tip, free flowing, good in the hand, this thing is great. This one was cheaper than the Pilot, but I can see where both have there strengths and why I would need to use both, thank you Matias for recommending them to me, totally worth it.
Have a great day all
