    WELCOME!

    This thread will be like @Stonechimes' clever Comics thread, but dumber. And drawn worse.

    Why am I doing this?
    It combines my love of Skullgirls with drawing. It is a good excuse to practice and get feedback (if something looks bad, please say so!). You see, if I could describe my art in one word, it would be "mimicry." I can sit down and draw anything (a leafless tree, skyline, a portrait, or whatever) as a photorealistic imitation. But I lack the confidence to draw something without reference. I rely too much on mimicking other things. I'm envious of a cartoonist's spontaneous style. For instance, check out the uber talented @chickenwithtie 's thread Drawing Skullgirls is a metaphor for a great example of transforming designs into personal aesthetics for spectacular results. Stonechimes also remolds the characters into a personal style in the aforementioned Comics thread. And conversely, does an excellent job of matching the game's style: remember that terrifyingly amazing entry to the Eliza costume contest? Still gives me chills!

    Comics?
    Okay, okay. Enough fruitless name-dropping and self-deprecating humor! Bring out the comics!

    Hopefully someone got the emo "I want to die" Space Dandy reference

    Since these comics are the equivalent to a runner's warm-up stretches before a jog, expect them to appear between projects (i.e. published irregularly). Requests and ideas for future comics are fine too.

    There is always room for improvement, but these look nice so far! I find the pie-eating contest bit to be my favorite so far.

    I like the artwork a lot. I know it's minor, but I think you should be hand-writing the text. The typed text almost makes it seem like it's been overwritten.

    Good advice. It was fun to pick fonts to fit each character, but then it quickly got out of hand. Here's a comic with little dialogue and handwritten text so it fits in better:

    Squigly picks up the fork in her left hand in the first panel, but in the fifth panel it's clearly in her right. What, are we supposed to believe this is some sort of magic fork?

    For serious, this is good stuff! There is something really unsettling about her stuffing food into her eye socket though.

    Uh... the bone hand is very weak so she, uh, she switched the fork off screen. Yeah... no continuity errors here...

    The official revelation that Cerebella's mother was/is good at creating Living Weapons (a Living Weapons-smith?) inspired this comic:

    I need to visit the art section more often, these are amazing! (Also, you did a Brain Drain comic, you have gained +100 Dingo points).
