I wonder how Hanners would have responded if she'd been on board Apollo 8?  :evil:

She'd have insisted on a Tom Collins. And she'd never have allowed Apollo 13 to happen.

Hi everybody!  Newbie here--I hope this doesn't count as "thread necrophilia."

I recently discovered Questionable Content via xkcd, got addicted, and blew through all the strips marathon-style over the course of 3 days...  a familiar tale, I'm sure! :-D  Aside from the wonderful writing, what really struck me was the development of mister Jacques' style over the course of the comic's run.  It's been years since I really put pen to paper with the intention of drawing anything, but after fast-forwarding through the evolution of QC from its humble beginnings to the stunning presentation it boasts today, I was super-inspired to start again.  The artist's love, dedication, and candor reminded me of why I used to draw in the first place, and how stupid I was to ever stop.  So thanks mister Jacques, this is dedicated to you. [/lifestory]

p.s. Before you freak out about the picture (too late? hee hee): I totally flubbed the right arm, but just could not bring myself to throw this away.  It's my first real drawing in forever--and of my absolute favorite QC character, no less!  Hence, the horrifying salvage job.  No creepy intentions, I swear!  :angel:

Welcome new person!

First: I must ask, are you a good witch, or a bad witch?

Second: Of course it's not thread necrosomethingorother. The thread is stickied for a reason.

Third: Nice drawing.

Ah, I will try to respond.

First:  I'm more of an aspiring mad scientist really!  But a nice one... chaotic good?  I don't know.  Did I just fail the test?

Second:  Whew.

Third: Thanks!  It's a hot mess, but the drawing means a lot to me... *tears stream down face while striking epic pose atop a mountain*  MISTER JACQUES I SALUTE YOU!

(^Sorry I watch too much weird anime)

Edit:  Also, thank you for the welcome!

Dicking around with the ol' tablet.  Her gnarly turkey-claw hand and vacant expression sort of reminded me of a zombie.



What do zombie hannelores hate the most?

Probably me, for that incredibly lame pun.

True that, though I was originally aiming for her long-haired acne-ridden incarnation--awkwardly introducing herself to her class, that kind of thing... but it looks like she got bit before I could give her pimples.   :-D

Heh, I guess it's better than the last attempt, where she turned into an octopus.

Reminds me of the old avatar I used, based on the comic where Marigold forgets Hanners is watching her play WoW, and lets one rip - all I did was photoshop in some blood in the mouth, and viola! 

Zombie Hanners!

Wow, really nice!  Dora looks almost asian - I supose it's the angle of the eyes.  But you really  captured Marten, and I like your take on Faye - truly zaftig. 

Also, nice watercolor technique - something that always frustrated me!

Awesome work jAAkarhu!  I really like the blocks of shadow on Faye, it's still tough for me to eyeball simple yet effective blocks of shadow like that. 

Could you share a bit of your technique here?  The shirts look like traditional media but the hair looks digitally pen-tooled/airbrushed  :-D

Well, thanks everyone!
I did the outlines in pencil and then the coloring in photoshop. If I remember correctly I used the lasso tool for selecting the shadowy areas, except for Dora's sweater where I just did some random experimenting with that funny-looking brush. Also I used the smudge tool for the hair highlights.
That's pretty much it!

That's excellent. I think you've got the creepy-without-meaning-to-be-but-painfully-aware-of-it vibe that defines her.

Somehow I'd have expected Momo to sit in seiza or kekkafuza with her hands in the classic gassho position in this situation, but I suppose cultural religious conditioning would be a different thing for her. Do robots pray to electric gods?

Ah, right. I put "REM red eye" into Google and the only relevant hit seemed to be "Red-e-Rem is a freeware program for removing red eye from jpeg (jpg) encoded digital photos..."

Hence my confusion.
