It's still night, but the shading techniques used by me aren't very good, so I had to lighten them.

Haha I knew it. He was trying to hobble away and adjust.

I think this marks the first time I have actually laughed at a naked girl.

I guess Mary was in too much of a hurry to catch up to him to remember that the only easy way to walk in those is backwards.

Mary, ladies and gentlemen, ever graceful! XD
Oh flippers, they are impossible to walk delicately in.

Lots of "Splap" and maybe some stick too...

Re: lightening; We want to see what going on!

Everyone take your individual positions!
Green ?

I'm sorry, but those flippers are a massive turn off. Like a beautiful woman coming at you wearing only bright red clown shoes and a spinning bowtie.

I'm sure that's a fetish for someone though.

Imagine the ambivalence if you encountered a mermaid...

Not everything has to be a fetish, and not everything has to be over-the-top sexy. Sometimes things are just silly.

Sexy girl in clown shoes? She's still sexy, but now she's funny, too!

Love grows from laughter and small things shared...

I'm not saying you were appealing to fetishists, I was saying that the absurd situation I described is probably someone's cup of tea.

And I don't like flippers or clown shoes in general. They are weird and...well unnerving. Snowshoes are ok. Still not funny but ok. The bowtie though, that one I should take back heh.

@view: "Sexy girl in clown shoes..." Like this?

Cattservant, you know what they say about a girl with big feet...!
cattservant 10th Mar 2012, 9:43 PM edit delete reply
Well, I do know they are hard to dance with!*

Perhaps, that they have hidden depths and/or large overhangs... (?)

*Plus, if you google the phrase "what they say about girls with big feet", there are 54,000,000 results!
Red 11th Mar 2012, 12:01 PM edit delete reply
Aaaand... now I just wasted a half hour reading google results for that search without seeing anything remotely interesting. <.<
cattservant 11th Mar 2012, 1:42 PM edit delete reply
I didn't either, was just impressed by the sheer volume. Should have put up a disclaimer.

I'm in the pro-flippers camp myself.

Clown shoes and a bowtie? Sounds like my last girlfriend really...

The attack was awkwardly effective!
Sheela 10th Mar 2012, 3:09 PM edit delete reply
What are you talking about ?
It was clearly a boob attack ! :D

A little off topic, but do you have a place where I can download the games you've made?
I know there's that one Christmas game, but do you have any others?

The only other things that are like games are the flash toys you can find on HF or DA, but they're all pretty old and grody.
Sheela 10th Mar 2012, 3:08 PM edit delete reply
HF = ?
cattservant 10th Mar 2012, 4:17 PM edit delete reply
Hentai Foundry (I think.) Here (I think.)

DA = ?
Sheela 11th Mar 2012, 12:25 AM edit delete reply
Oh yeah ... I even think that's from where I found this comic.
Damn, I should have remembered that.

As for DA, I'm guessing Deviant Art.

Hehe, despite the flippers, mission accomplished!
cattservant 10th Mar 2012, 9:20 PM edit delete reply
For some obscure reason, Mary in panel 5 brings Ponyo to mind. In particular this image. Perhaps it is Mary's liquid nature coming to the surface.
Archduke 11th Mar 2012, 1:18 AM edit delete reply
More 'Night of the Living Dead' for me. If you remove the caption, that is.

You know, the transition between panels 1 and 2 looks really weird: It's as if Jim is a bot in some game, shuffling towards some pre-determined spot, then stopping for a second and returning to 'default stance' for a second before then using the 'open door' animation.

Maybe it's just me playing too many old games for my own good...
Gyde 11th Mar 2012, 1:35 AM edit delete reply
I don't see Ponyo in that but I do see one of the rat creatures.

Sorry, no clue how to change it into a single word.
cattservant 11th Mar 2012, 1:57 AM edit delete reply
@Gyde:This link might be useful if you like.

I can see the shape resemblance. Isn't it amazing how totally unrelated things can intersect at some unexpected point!

Speaking of 'bone rats', are you familiar with this from here.
Gyde 12th Mar 2012, 1:42 AM edit delete reply
@cattservant: thanks for the link I shouldn't have any problems in the future.

Never read that, but I'll see if I can't find it. The art in it kinda reminds me of The Sandman.

(hopefully this works as I plan)

@Archduke: #5 and #6; It does look like she's about eat his heart!*

In the old days, if you stared at a CRT too long, you'd start seeing things.

*Actually, metaphorically speaking, she is!

Zombies, Bone Rats and Magical Goldfish Girls! I feel like such an outlier. Superannuated too. Sigh...

Wonderful sound effect there in Panel 3...

Heh heh.
