This was actually the first time I wrote a script for a strip, it was just one page, but still I wrote out every panel and text before I started to make the actual strip. I didn't really have a strip lined out in my head, just this idea, so I had to sketch it out in written form first to see where it went, and tweaking it there instead of while I'm doing the actual strip on Illustrator. This worked real smoothly and great, especially the graphic-making part. I think I'll always start by writing down the strip first from now on.
I came up with this strip just this morning, I had this great dream where I was really hitting it of with this really wonderful happy cute and positive girl, and then I woke up and realized it was just a dream and I felt so utterly alone. My life really seemed horrible compared to that dream.
The only dreams I like are either the ones where I'm doing something so extremely fantastical that I would never ever be able to experience that in real life, like something really surreal or exciting, or when I for example live through a zombie apocalypse, where it's all terrifying and stressful and stuff, because then life actually seems better when you wake up, plus you get this really amazing "false" memory of an exciting life.
Oh, and I think this is the first time I've ever had my character in black, I was going to use my standard white but I really liked how this turned out.
I remember when I was only going to use black for female characters (I have no idea why) and I've basically just done that. But mostly because I have had really really really few other guys (as in boys or men) in my strips for some reason, like only two or three or something, I guess I just interact ALOT more with girls (uh, women.. females..) than with guys.
