Drawing Benny boy as a kid was SO much fun, you have no idea. I almost colored his hair green though.
That said I'm not too pleased with the presentation of this page. It's fairly rare for me to be totally disappointed, but alas. Oh, there'll be way more to Benny boy and his backstory, of course. This is more or less...A taste, I suppose?

What IS up with Benny boy? I'm gonna say that it's nothing ... Normal, and more than likely /not/ what anyone is thinking. No one will be able to guess it 100%, I'm thinking!

And ze Bad News:
/ There won't be an update on Friday.:( /

I hate it. But, it seems like Thanksgiving festivities are happening here after all. I'm gonna be pretty busy with that and won't have time for the page; I barely got this one done!
Y'see, my Grandmas bday and my aunts bday (grandma is gonna be /95/!) both fall very close to Thanksgiving, so we celebrate that all in one day on Thanksgiving.
Between preparing and then cleaning up after Thanksgiving, I'm also visiting Grandmas house on Friday (quite the drive away), because our favorite Chinese take out place is closing after almost 50 years of being open. This is pretty much a tragedy because damnit I loved that place!! No one does my noodles like them...!!
*ahem* So we're gonna pig out one last time.
(then I'm gonna get down on my hands and knees and beg for the damn recipe)

That being said I'm kinda mad at myself hahah. I wanted to see if I could go at least one entire year (the first full year of WA!) without missing a single update, and sadly I bombed it by having no buffer and no time to refill it(I ate it through it a long time ago). I am a slacker to the extreme!

Sorry, guys! See you all Monday! Happy Thanksgiving for those of you who celebrate it! I should still be able to read your comics and all, I'll have my phone handy!

But a bit of nice news before I go!
/Even more amazing fanart/! In fact I got it Monday! Wow!

Now every character has been done! Except Shaun, but who cares about him, he's an asshole.
Really, though- It's beautiful! The way Eva is drawn here is just perfect and spot on with Evaness! *Sigh* That hair, those clothing wrinkles, that pose...Gorgeous! Dem eyes! Thank you RandomNPC! Now Eva isn't the only one left out in the fanart department.;D


TL;DR: No update on Friday because Seabiscuit sucks, and more awesome fanart!

Poor Ben! I think this page is great btw. I like learning his backstory. I probably won't have an update either Thursday OR Friday if that makes you feel better. I plan on pigging out for Thanksgiving. XD
Seabiscuit 26th Nov 2014, 12:15 AM edit delete reply
Heh! I still feel like a slacker! If only I had more time to make buffers!
Oh, same. I don't care much for typical Thanksgiving food. But there'll be birthday CAKE!

Little boy Benny is so cute! Too bad about his mom and dad though :(

Don't worry about the update on Friday, it's a holiday :D
Seabiscuit 26th Nov 2014, 12:16 AM edit delete reply
Heh! Thanks! Little Benny was the best most fun part of this page. If only he was that little and cute full time hahahah.
I feel bad about pulling the parents crap on him!

True. But still.:(

Mr. Vareel

Benjamin: "I think I'm going insane!"
Seabiscuit 26th Nov 2014, 12:16 AM edit delete reply
Hahaha. We'll see!
(Oh jeez that clip cracked me the hell up!)
Skweeee 26th Nov 2014, 12:25 AM edit delete reply
I have my own theory which is similar to Mr Vareel's idea. I'm not going to say anything now, because I think I might be right and I don't want to spoil.
Seabiscuit 26th Nov 2014, 12:29 AM edit delete reply
Oho, I am curious!
It'd be funny if someone really did guess completely what was going on. Someone did partially guess at one point, though.

Hahah...Hello Zola.:P

That little backstory on just one page was heartbreaking. Like the efficient story telling at the beginning of "Up".
Ben's Dad leaving like that...
I wouldn't stress too much about the update schedule. I've said this to others on Comic Fury. If missing your own deadline were a crime, I would be the Al Capone of deadline-wrecking. 'sides, I'm not sure how anyone could be upset with someones update schedule when you have a handy update queue to find all of your favorite comics waiting for you.

This was a great page Seabiscuit. Well done!
Seabiscuit 26th Nov 2014, 12:27 AM edit delete reply
Thanks! I'm glad the sadness went through!;D
It made /me/ sad to have to draw this...!
I haven't seen Up, but I'm aware it has a depressing start haha.

Hahah...I suppose! I don't mind at all if someone misses an update, I know stuff happens and all, but as for myself... it bums me out to have to miss an update haha.

Damn...So close to the end of the year, I almost made it!:P

thank you very much!

I almost forgot Ben's hair is actually dyed.

Don't worry 'bout the updates, sometimes things happen that we can't foresee and have no control over! 95 is a great milestone, so congrats to your grandma!

I know how it feels to have a favorite restaurant close after going therefor so long. There was an Italian place my family and I would go to all the time for special occasions, and they were the only place the made pasta with bolognese sauce just the way I liked it!

Have a good Thanksgiving!
Seabiscuit 26th Nov 2014, 12:35 AM edit delete reply
Trust me, I forget myself sometimes, hahah.

True, but still.:(
Haha, thanks, I'll pass that grats along! It certainly is a great milestone; 95 and still goin' strong! She's outlived like...everyone.

Oh man yes. Honestly I'm just gonna avoid non chains from now on! It's too painful when they close down!

Thanks, you too!;D

Aw man. Too many people relating to these past couple pages!:(
(Lucky! I hate Thanksgiving.xD)
Thanks! And thanks again for the amazing fanart :D

Oh noes, he sees himself on the fast track to insanity. Or something else, even worse?

Excellent. I was like "What is with his sister? Oh.. I see. She doesn't exist. D:"

And sweet, he had black hair back then.

Don't worry about the update. Also small hiatuses are fine.
Happy Thanksgiving. :D
Seabiscuit 26th Nov 2014, 9:46 AM edit delete reply
Pretty much. Poor bud!
Yup! Dyed hair.;D No natural green hair here hahah.
Haha, thanks!

I think the page turned out nicely.
Sorry to hear about one of your fav restaurant is closing. I'm familiar with that sad feeling.
Happy Thanksgiving.
Seabiscuit 26th Nov 2014, 5:03 PM edit delete reply
Heh, thank you!
Oh yes. It sucks. I'm gonna avoid restaurants from now on, dangit...!
Thanks, you too!

Happy Thanksgiving and Happy 95th Birthday to Grandma! Wow It's crazy to think about all the things she probably seen in 95 years.
Seabiscuit 26th Nov 2014, 10:10 PM edit delete reply
Thanks, you too!
Haha, I'll pass on the birthday wishes!
Oh my, yes heh. She's seen some cool stuff. She has all kindsa cool old crap around her house too, like she had these ration thingies from WW2.

Thank you! Easily the most fun part. I need to force more Little Benjamin in.;D

Yes, yes it is! She drew Eva so perfectly!
