That damned "Twitch" panel!

I thought Felix helping Benny boy up a couple pages back would be the hardest thing I'd draw for a while, and I managed to knock it out in an hour. But that 6th panel here? It totally kicked my ass for some reason! Holy shit, I spent like 2 hours on it before I was half ways alright with it.

I hate closeups at dat angle, damn.

Guess whaaat! Even more fanart!!
This time, DeadFish painted up Anne!

It's beautiful! Wow! It captures her personality /perfectly/. Everything from the painting itself, the pose, the tentacles, the way she's holding's all so beautiful! It just screams Anne. It's simply so amazing getting fanart like this in such a different style compared to my own. Thank you DeadFish, I love her!:D

Seabiscuit, this is sad and scary for reasons I didn't even consider.

The fear of loosing your mind... Poor Ben!

Now the question is; was his mom insane, or did she manifest some sort of psychic power she had to struggle to deal with???

Your constant influx of fanart is very telling of the quality of your storytelling and artistic abilities. Get used to your fame!!!

This fanart by Deadfish is just outstanding!!!

Oh, yes would be a pretty sad fear to have, indeed. I feel so bad doing this to my characters!:P
A good question! Sadly it's gonna be a long while before that is cleared up completely, but we'll see a bit more here in the next page...

Hahah! Thank you! But I'll for sure never get used to it! Every day I wonder if the fact even one person liking my comic, let alone all /these/ people, is a dream! Hahah.

Yes it is! He made Anne more gorgeous than I ever could for sure.;D

Oh Seabiscuit! I forgot to comment on your struggle with the Twitch.

I am so familiar with that. It's when the picture in your mind is so specific, because you want to portray a particular emotion in a very exact way. You wont be satisfied until you get exactly that 'feeling' come off of the panel that you've been trying to create, but it eludes you. Anyone else looking at your art after wont get it, unless they've struggled the same way.

Am I right, Sea?
Seabiscuit 24th Nov 2014, 6:15 PM edit delete reply
Hahah! That's exactly it! What a perfect way of putting it!
Especially these few pages. A few months ago, July I think? I woke up in the middle of night and couldn't get back to sleep because I was too excited about these particular pages, hahah. Most of my daydreams were about these few pages, too. So I was extra dead set on getting them juuust right!

I don't think it quite matches what's in my head of course, but it's getting there...

But yeah, this twitch panel was one of my favorite bits that was floating around in my head, so it took a lot of extra time to fine tune! Kinda funny since it's just a small little panel there heh.

Nail on the head, tho!

Haha! Thank you, I'm glad you're hyped ;D!

It's okay, Benny Boy, I was completely insane before I was even born! XD
Seabiscuit 24th Nov 2014, 2:28 AM edit delete reply
Heh :(
Somehow I doubt that'd cheer him up much!
rufiangel 24th Nov 2014, 7:57 AM edit delete reply
Maybe you should try that stethoscope on and listen to Benny's heart, Jeff. ;)

Oh boy, some exposition! Oh, Ben. Are you worried you're going insane too? D:
Seabiscuit 24th Nov 2014, 10:49 AM edit delete reply
Heh! I can only imagine how fast it'd be going.:D

Poor Benny boy! That does seem to be a concern...
Dollipop 24th Nov 2014, 12:19 PM edit delete reply
Wow the fanart is amazing!!

Im getting even more into the story each comic page *-*!
Seabiscuit 24th Nov 2014, 12:27 PM edit delete reply

Daaang. I didn't walk into this expecting to relate to Benjamin. Poor guy.
Seabiscuit 24th Nov 2014, 3:16 PM edit delete reply
Heh, poor Benny boy does it have it rather rough as of late...

(oh dear, I hope it didn't bring up bad thngs :x)

Eh, it's fine. It brings up some bad memories, but it also gives me a better sense of him, and that's what's important here.
Seabiscuit 24th Nov 2014, 3:56 PM edit delete reply
Eep, sorry bout that!
The Chessmaster 24th Nov 2014, 5:42 PM edit delete reply
The Chessmaster
Seriously, it's fine. The important thing here is the comic's quality, not what it reminds random people of.

Hehe, Great twitch panel XD

That fan art is "off the hook" amazing!
Seabiscuit 24th Nov 2014, 5:34 PM edit delete reply
Haha, thanks! I did have fun with that one even though it was a huge pain.

Yes, yes it is!:D

Can't wait for the next page :D
Wow, that's some awesome fan art!
Seabiscuit 24th Nov 2014, 5:34 PM edit delete reply
Hehe. Thanks!;D

Oh man, yes! It's amazin'!:D
Vincethestick 24th Nov 2014, 8:37 PM edit delete reply
I remember seeing the fan art in the thread it was in - it's awesome!

But C'mon Ben, you can put aside your character exposition for a moment because Jeff found a stethoscope. A STETHOSCOPE.
Seabiscuit 24th Nov 2014, 8:50 PM edit delete reply
Heh heh, it really is!

HAHAH. For reals, Benny boy! Priorities, man, jeez...

My mom is crazy as hell and I always fear that one day I will lose my mind. When I dress this concern with my wife, she just looks at me blankly and tells me she thought I lost my mind years ago. lol
Seabiscuit 24th Nov 2014, 9:05 PM edit delete reply
Your wife sounds like she has good humor as well.;D
machinehead 24th Nov 2014, 9:18 PM edit delete reply
As long as she was really joking. I have my doubts. lol
Seabiscuit 24th Nov 2014, 9:23 PM edit delete reply
It's alright. I think most of us here have lost our minds by now!

Could it be that Benny has a "clairaudience" perception then evolved into "clairvoyance"? Ooo... mystery!
Seabiscuit 25th Nov 2014, 10:58 AM edit delete reply
Haha! I did not know it was called 'clairaudience'. I learned something new!
