Well, when he was alive as Jojo, Blade Knight inc. did die in his teenage years, so there's that. I really enjoy how bizarre this whole thing is. It's just crude enough, it's weird and it definitely reads like something Blade Knight inc. would write. Death Reaper JOE's line gets me each time I read it, it's so frank.
Is this the first time in the site's history that Nina's ever been the focus of anything? Well, at least I can check that off before this site inevitably goes dormant in the future. Nina's fussy but cute, and in fairness, she probably shouldn't have had her ears played with like that. She can't help that they're longer than normal.
I can't wait to see this at the Art Institute of Chicago. The Japanese collections gallery is missing this key piece of heroic history. Also, this picture I drew is meant to be more of a comic, less plain old fan art, so that's why it's here. Fun Fact: The picture was conceptualized to have Sentret replace George Washington crossing the Delaware, beating up a shark or alligator or something. And then I remembered "oh yeah, Sentret's Japanese, that wouldn't make sense". At least I'm consistent.
The first animated comic on this site! It's wonderfully stupid!
I got my inspiration from a commerical.
It's just that easy, folks. Another opportunity to learn your Lisa. The real point of the comic is that while Lisa is usually reserved and quiet (Tuff is usually the boisterous one), there's two things that make Lisa, erm, noisy? Excitable? First off, it's competitive video games. Any game with a competitive mode, beatable records or leaderboards, she gets rowdy. Secondly, it's anything she's a fan of. Mega Man, Adventure Time, whatever. She can't contain her geekiness, so she gushes. In school she's better behaved and keeps to herself, but her ears will still perk up.
Lisa's been around for a long time now, but hasn't really had anything to show for it. I figured it was as good a time as any to help you all get to know her a little better. The point of this comic is to show just a bit of the relationship between father and daughter, and just maybe, it's a little sweet too. I've already decided a while ago that Lisa and Kent's relationship is one built on respect, support and trust. Lisa has selective work ethic to be sure, but she's more than willing to help her dad out without being asked. She also just plain enjoys his company. That may make Lisa a bit of a daddy's girl, but I feel like there aren't enough functional families in entertainment. Dysfunctionality is tired and predictable. Besides, Lisa has her quirks without being a brat.
People sometimes ask where I get my inspirations/material from. Simply put, about 80% of it comes from real life. Case in point, the cafeteria where I get my lunch has flavor syrups you can add to soft drinks/tea/juice. You can also get soda water/club soda/seltzer water straight from the dispenser. So I mixed together caramel flavored syrup and soda water. It made me think about the idea of a caramel drink, and then just straight melted caramel, and I knew which character to assign that thought too. Also, caramel flavored soda is actually very... ah, unique.
That feeling when you (finally) get a Street Pass.
Also, I dislike that commercial. Or any commercial with the sophisticated modern woman and the neanderthal who can't tell his head from his arse. So very tired of them. What the heck happened to all the men in America? Nevertheless, for some reason it was on my mind, and a gag similar to this came up. This isn't a "Take That" towards the commercial (it doesn't bother me that much), but more of a cute sincerity that would come from Nidorina. Done with cool grey Prismacolors and inking pens (I love these items).
She looks like an adorable chubby koala, I can't stand it ahlaksjdhlkah
