Hello folks! A bit late again...Woooops. I was a bit busy today, so this got delayed a litte, hahah.
Don't worry; we haven't seen the last of these two idiots. They'll be back. Shaun will, too.

But hey, something neat; I timed myself drawing this page! I setup my stopwatch app and let it go whenever I was drawing, stopping it whenever I stopped drawing for any length of time. No mistakes made. I did this once before, I can't remember what page now (I think the total lineart that time was 3 hours 50 minutes?), but it was fuckin' ancient history! Last summer, maybe? I was still getting used to working with a mouse.

Anywho, for this page:
Sketch: Woops, forgot to record this. A half hourish, maybe? I won't include this in the final count.
Paneling: 3 minutes
Lineart: 4 hours, 54 minutes
Color: 59 minutes
Text/Word Balloons: 17 minutes

Total: 6 hours, 13 minutes

Dayumn! Not bad for a mouse, though, I think. Still, it'd be about the same on my tablet probably. I'm pretty slow these days.

But guess what?

Even more fanart- This time, some amazing fanart by Mothtrap and XibalbanSleeper!!

Mothtrap did an amazing sprite work piece!
Click here!

This particular art also comes in two other flavors sizes, small and medium! Oh boy, this just...
It is criminally adorable! Sprite art is one of my most favorite things, and seeing my own characters sprited so beautifully is amazing! The lighting and the pixely shading and...Ahh man! Each character is too damn cute! And that animation! Everyones little animation is just perfect. I think my favorite has to be Jeff petting the kitty or Felix and the mask- But Anne is also so cute and AHHHH that Benny boy yawn!! It's really amazing how Mothtrap managed to fit so many details into such a little space; like Jeff, you can see his stitches, and then there's his grey eye. And all the things in the background! The curtains, the TV, the books and things! Augh! I love this!

(Mothtrap does the amazing and chilling Je-re-my!:D, check it out!)

And then, XibalbanSleeper drew a pinup of Anne!

(Slightly NSFW? But she is covered, hahah)

Apparently inspired by ArgyleFox's beefcake versions of Benjamin and Felix, he set out to draw a pinup of Anne! Oh boy, hahah. I got to see his process with this one (like original sketch) which is always quite nice! Gotta say the pose and shading is super pro here. That look on her face and the way she's taking off her glasses...Oh boy! And all dem tentacles, hahah! I cracked up pretty hard at the idea behind this, heheh. Sweet, innocent Anne being so seductive. And those books- Oh my god. I laughed even harder at those book titles. Apparently "Cthulurotica" is a real book. A real book that Sleeper owns. No wonder he likes Anne so much!

(Sleeper does the awesome Xibalba, it has Marcus, like what else do you even need?)

I gotta say, I'm always shocked by stuff like this- I wasn't expecting so much fanart. Let alone pinups, beefcakes, and animated sprite art! Like damn, my fanart page needs to be organized somehow, now.:D

APRIL 28th:
Prrrrrobably another late page. Sigh.
Not too late, hopefully.
But I'm running a tad late again.

Felix just lets them go with a slap on the wrist? O_O TOO NICE! You should at LEAST conk 'em out!

And... uh... are those fingers poking out of Max's head? Is that his mutation? XD;;; Or is Eva hiding behind him with a V-sign behind his head? LOL XD;

(Love the fanart~! <3 :D mothtrap is always super talented XD and daaayum that pin-up of Anne >_> lolol)
Seabiscuit 27th Apr 2015, 1:29 AM edit delete reply
Hahah, even if they messed with both his bud and his hat, Felix is a bit too nice and lenient for his own good.:D

HAH! Good catch; Yup, those are fingers, his mutation!

(I know right? Oh my gosh, I'm still in awe of both *-*)
Sleeper 27th Apr 2015, 1:44 AM edit delete reply
Max has the least useful extra fingers ever.

Felix is maybe a little too nice sometimes. He should have at least taken the beret.

FTR: It turned out to be a collection of surprisingly tasteful short stories.
So far anyway. Only got a few in.
Seabiscuit 27th Apr 2015, 10:17 AM edit delete reply
Hahahah, right? Not all of the mutations can be useful, I suppose.

He really is, and he really should have! And then he could have put the beret on top of his top hat. JUSTICE!

(Hahaha, really? Wow, that is surprising.)
(Thank you again for the lovely pinup!:D)

Dang! It just blows my mind that you do better with a freakin' MOUSE than I do with my Wacom...

I really want to see those two again, and again, and again, and see them flub it each time. :)
Sleeper 27th Apr 2015, 1:47 AM edit delete reply
Right?! How is that even possible?
Seabiscuit 27th Apr 2015, 10:21 AM edit delete reply
Hahahah! Aw, you flatter me!
It took a lot of practice and patience for sure. Page 61 was the first page where I did the lineart with a mouse, and to date it's probably the worst lineart I have ever drawn, hahahaha. Well, being stuck without my tablet wasn't gonna stop me, dangit!
(Pff, and for the record, there is no way I do a better job!;D)

HAH! They'll be back for sure. I had too much fun with them, and they were around for too short a time!
randomNPC 27th Apr 2015, 1:47 AM edit delete reply
Felix is such a nice person, even when angry :)

That's Max? That is some unique mutation there ;)

Awesome sprite fanart! (Wowzers!)
Oh my... Anne... ( Naughty...)
Seabiscuit 27th Apr 2015, 10:22 AM edit delete reply
He really is! He's probably the least likely of the group to ever be mean. Well, then again, there is Jeff...

That is Max! A unique, and utterly useless, mutation.:D

(I know right? Hehehehehe. I adore them both!)
Hindbodes 27th Apr 2015, 3:46 AM edit delete reply
Ah, I should record my elapsed comic production time too!

Also, holy crap, you have a popular webcomic that's mouse-drawn?
Seabiscuit 27th Apr 2015, 10:24 AM edit delete reply
Oh, you should! I'm very curious what everyones times are! With just my times, I can't tell how slow I am.:D

Hah! Oh, gosh. Uhm. I-I guess so! I'm sure there's plenty of mouse artists on here, though, just keeping quiet.:D
Miaubol 27th Apr 2015, 4:52 AM edit delete reply
Oh dear, built-in bunny ears.. xD

Daaaw those spites are so adorable. and there's a cat there too :D

Lol, Anne is covered indeed ;)
Seabiscuit 27th Apr 2015, 10:25 AM edit delete reply
Not quite as useful as ears, sadly!;)

I know right?! Jeff petting the kitty...! And a black cat, my favorite!
And Anne...Yup, she is covered, hahaha!:D
ChilPhil 27th Apr 2015, 7:47 AM edit delete reply
It was nice to let them go with just a warning. I would have first checked the house before letting them go.
I should do a time study on how long it takes me do a page!
Seabiscuit 27th Apr 2015, 10:26 AM edit delete reply
This is true. I would have made sure Max was actually ok, first, hahaha. Well, Felix was sure they were just harmless morons, but it was a bit of a gamble.

Yes, do a time study! I wanna know how long it takes everyone.:D
MST3KFan 27th Apr 2015, 8:06 AM edit delete reply
Perpetually stuck giving himself the 'bunny ears' joke due to his own mutation. Oh, the humanity! XD

And Felix letting them go...will it truly be okay? Or will they be back? *duhn, duhn, DUHnnnnnnn!!!!!*
Seabiscuit 27th Apr 2015, 10:27 AM edit delete reply
Hahaha, aw man. I didn't consider that one. Poor Max!;)

HEH! It'll be ok...For now
Stever 27th Apr 2015, 8:27 AM edit delete reply
Wow! You almost need a separate sight for WA fanart.

I'm not sure letting people go is the right move, but I'm sure Felix knows what he's doing ;D
Seabiscuit 27th Apr 2015, 10:29 AM edit delete reply
I know, right? Hahaha. I know some people make like separate comic sites for fanart, but I have so many comics on my profile already. Agh, I don't know how to organize these.:D

I'd be a bit iffy about it, but, Felix probably does know what he's doing indeed.:D
MadJak91 27th Apr 2015, 8:38 AM edit delete reply
That perfectly right angled top hat is always so hypnotizing :D
Seabiscuit 27th Apr 2015, 10:30 AM edit delete reply
Hahah! I think that's the most unique comment his hat has ever gotten!
I do enjoy his top hat, drawing it and all.:D
MadJak91 27th Apr 2015, 10:35 AM edit delete reply
You will have to excuse my math self noticing stuff before my any other selves :D
Seabiscuit 27th Apr 2015, 10:38 AM edit delete reply
Originally I was drawing it angled properly. But it was more fun to make it totally straight. More cartoony.;D

You are officially "fan-art-bait," sea.

Felix is too nice to those two bums, especially after they took his wonderful hat. D:<
(Nice fingers, dude.)
Seabiscuit 27th Apr 2015, 10:30 AM edit delete reply
Hahahahaha oh my god!

He really is. He should have kicked their asses at least! Felix pls. Dun be so nice.
(Hahha, poor Max, the stupidest mutation to date!)
Adina 27th Apr 2015, 10:57 AM edit delete reply
Felix. This will bite you back. DON'T! help Felix is turning into fav
Seabiscuit 27th Apr 2015, 11:02 AM edit delete reply
Felix deserves fav status!>;]
He's probably my favorite of the males
wait but ahh so many babies
Jarvi 27th Apr 2015, 2:03 PM edit delete reply
Poor Max ^^' Fortunately rescue is incoming ^^
Anyways his mutation is like this
Seabiscuit 27th Apr 2015, 2:08 PM edit delete reply
Yes, all is well, now!:D

Hahaha- It really is! Except he gets to have that on my head forever!
sephirencomics 27th Apr 2015, 8:58 PM edit delete reply
Awesome page as always :)
Seabiscuit 27th Apr 2015, 9:14 PM edit delete reply
Thank you!:D
demcleod 28th Apr 2015, 4:52 AM edit delete reply
I think just letting them go is a bad idea. What if there's more of them? :O
Seabiscuit 28th Apr 2015, 9:21 AM edit delete reply
Indeed! Luckily for them, it really is just these two idiots.:)
Skweeee 29th Apr 2015, 12:42 AM edit delete reply
I'm with Dwayne. They shoulda been tied up and sent to jail!!

Lovely page Seabiscuit!!!
Seabiscuit 29th Apr 2015, 2:20 AM edit delete reply
Hahaha. Yeah, probably! Or at least beaten up for the crime of taking the hat.;D

Thank you Skweeee!:D

Odd choice, but okay.
Seabiscuit 12th May 2015, 9:30 AM edit delete reply
Odd choice indeed, but Benny boy trusts his judgement, I suppose.:D
