The Faces of Madness

Not really a comic, but I thought I’d draw out the potential ways I may choose to portray my particular flavor of madness for that day.

Usually I’ll stick with the standard in the lower right hand corner, with the stand curved triangular blob body. Occasionally when drawing these, I don’t feel like I’m flexing my drawing muscles enough, so I’ll try something else.

One thing I’ve learned about myself is that I really don’t enjoy drawing complicated hair. I instead tend to place heavy weight on facial expression and sometimes the hands to convey what I’m saying. As silly as it seems, I often have to re-position eyebrows and mouths often for the right “flavor” I’m looking for.

While the visuals are definitely a big part, I’m really just trying to ‘animate’ conversations I’ve had. Drawing conversations by themselves seems like a silly enough idea, so I use what little scribbling I do to get the point across. In the end, my comics are just really text. I’ll have wordless ones on occasion, but the text alone could probably give you the gist of it. But that doesn’t really make much for a comic blog, so I spend a lot of time drawing, redrawing, and making sure everything fits.

Thanks for indulging for lazy attempt at laziness.
