Hahah this was painful. I gotta get used to coloring with a mouse all over again. You'd think it'd be simple compared to lineart but no. And the balloons... the balloons.

I actually have nothing else to say, so have a good weekend everyone!:D

*psst* seamuffin, fifth panel, Felix is too nervous and said 'probaby' instead of 'probably' XDDD

Wow, I envy your mouse-shading skillz, srsly @_@

Hmm... I suppose she WILL find out... eventually... >_>;; (hopefully not AFTER Ben gets marked as loony D:)
Seabiscuit 29th May 2015, 12:31 AM edit delete reply
At least...this doesn't happen TOO often. But damnit all, hah! Thanks for telling me Rufi I probably would not have noticed ;~;

Pfff! Aw, thank you! If wasn't so painful...:D

Oh gosh, yes. Let's hope she doesn't find out when it's too late...!

Wastelanders Anonymous: The comic of quickly changing subjects! XD

I'm still amazed to know a lot of this was done by mouse. Seriously. I used to use Photoshop with a mouse and it drove me NUTS. >_O

You must have the patience of a Buddhist monk to do all this with a mouse.
Seabiscuit 29th May 2015, 1:04 AM edit delete reply
Heheh...a bad habit of mine it seems, for sure!

Hahah! Buddhist monk. Thank you!;D
It's just that I'm damn determined! I'd rather not be too reliant on a tablet, since I'll never afford a new one after this.:D

Ah yeah...Photoshop. Boy. I remember all mouse artists back in the day would use that and the pen tool. I hated it so much! I think for people wanting to draw lineart or whatever with a mouse, the tools available today make that a lot easier, is all. Sai is great for it.:D

"Probably"... ;)

Drawing with the mouse. I remember the "good old times" when I drew with the mouse, and yes, in Photoshop. It was all squiggly, shaky lines but I thought it looked so professional, because it was digital... xD

Have a nice weekend :D

Seabiscuit 29th May 2015, 10:12 AM edit delete reply

PFFHAHAH! Yeah, man! Since I loathed the pen tool, I tried to do it regularly with the brush tool and it looked awful. But it was PHOTOSHOP and it was DIGITAL so I left really fancy and powerful...Hahahha.:D

You too!

Felix successfully navigated past her questioning. Good for him.
I feel spoiled drawing with my wacom tablet. But for vector drawings, at times I do find it easier with a mouse.
Seabiscuit 29th May 2015, 10:13 AM edit delete reply
He dodged a major bullet here!

Tablets are spoiling for sure, hahah. For ages I thought I'd draw no other way. But it's not like I can always have my tablet...alas.
I think vectors would be easier with a mouse, yeah.:D

That's three probably's on one page. Something tells me Felix isn't at all confident about this. And Anne let it go a little easier than I was expecting. Bet she'll pull it out when the boys least expect it. >:]

And the last panel. Yes. All the yes for that dialogue. XD
Seabiscuit 29th May 2015, 10:14 AM edit delete reply
Hehehe! Indeed, Felix is pretty unconfident here. But he had to escape Annes questioning! A total bro move, keeping Benny boys secrets.:D

Anne is probably going to just lie in wait...Heh heh.

Ah, thank you, glad you liked that bit!;D
Stever 29th May 2015, 8:40 AM edit delete reply
He knows she'll find out eventually.

Hopefully before it's too late *ominous music*

It seems to me that your word balloons are a bit more difficult to make than the normal circles. ;D
Seabiscuit 29th May 2015, 10:15 AM edit delete reply
Hahaha! Hopefully! But she will find ouuut....

Maybe. I think trying to do circles would be harder for me with a mouse, though, hah. I already have so much trouble with circles in general.:D
Stever 29th May 2015, 3:48 PM edit delete reply
Well, sure if your making them freehand, but the circle tool really makes life a bit easier XD
MadJak91 29th May 2015, 9:23 AM edit delete reply
Bah! I do EVERYTHING with mouse in the most crude way possible :D
And reading this, I do not feel too bad about having my usual yellow background as the only background :D
Really, this is as much your trademark BG color as the yellow I use!
Seabiscuit 29th May 2015, 10:16 AM edit delete reply
Pff, pls, it looks fine though, Madjak!

Mouse artists united

Also, yeah, hah. The BG in Annes place is terribly dull because she doesn't have much stuff out at the moment.

Wow, I read that last panel the wrong way and thought he meant Ben and Anne were related... Incest much. XD lol

Glad I reread it. I was creeped out. LOL
Seabiscuit 29th May 2015, 2:23 PM edit delete reply
Ewwwww, Dem! What a sick mind you must have!;D

No incest in WA, hah!

I was gonna say something, but I thought better.

I feel like Ben needs someone to spur him onward if he's ever gonna tell Anne ANYTHING. XD

That's a lot of probablies, Felix!

I color with a mouse (in Photoshop, though, not Sai), and I understand your plight. The problem is, I'm even worse with a stylus than a mouse! XD
Seabiscuit 29th May 2015, 6:23 PM edit delete reply
Pfffhahah- Very true. Left alone he won't say a word probably.:D

Hahah...he's just never too sure.:)

Yes it is painffffull!! I don't know how anyone can color with those screenless tablets though in the first place, damn.D:
Clanjack Farlo 29th May 2015, 6:25 PM edit delete reply
Clanjack Farlo
The screenless tablets are more like paper for me, so they're easier in my case to use. That's what I was using during that stream I did, and that wasn't easy at all; I prefer ink and paper. XD

Lovely page as always :)

Hehehhe, thank you!:D

FINALLY I'm all caught up!!!! I subbed a while back (3 days or so?) but months in comic-time, so my binge-reading is finally complete. I'm so sorry to hear about your computer woes (expect a pm about this).

Don't beat yourself up over silly things like update schedules. Life happens, and your health is more important than getting a comic out "on time". That being said, I can't wait until Monday!
Seabiscuit 31st May 2015, 10:09 PM edit delete reply
Hehehe! It was fun watching your comment journey across the pages. Memories.
(And thanks for the kind words!)

Ah yeah. Thank you! It does indeed happen, huh? Monday will happen if I have to pull an all nighter, but it'll be a tad late.D:

iggycrypt 2nd Jun 2015, 8:38 AM edit delete reply
I do whatever I can to avoid coloring with a mouse!
Seabiscuit 2nd Jun 2015, 10:17 AM edit delete reply
Hahaha, I don't blame you there! But I was without much choice.:D
