Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

Last week, I was sad about Whisper's never had, can't have sex thing—with all that augs can do sensory-wise, it just didn't feel right. But I like the story line. And from an animation point of view, I want to see if David can pull off a kiss that looks half-way convincing. My guess is that is one o...

Absolutely: great plot development. I was hoping we'd see Shade again. Great going, David.

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

Excellent story line for this chapter. However, I'm beginning to think humanity is doomed: far too many people with aug'd bodies that would completely disclude intimacy, let alone procreation. Poor Shade and Marcus—hired guns who can't do anything fun with their downtime.

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

I just realised that Dave does not use gratuitous noise effect layers over the action. It does clarify the images we see, but it also makes it difficult to pick up on what is moving and what actions have just happened. I wish there were some way to show movement of features in the comic, the pages ...

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

Expecting a weekly-published webcomic to be entirely logically consistent is absurd, particularly in a universe where technology has so much potential to eliminate humans as actors. You can pick: consistent, irrefutable logic or compelling story. You can't pick both consistently with this publishing...

Greebling

Hi David,

You do a great job with your greebling on all of your space structures. Do you use displacements for that or model the details by hand? If so, are you using a part box of pre-built greebles, or add that to each model individually?

Re: A concluding point

Thanks for the generous, thoughtful reply, David. I'm going to wager you've read a bit about screen writing. The "beats" concept is one I've mainly encountered in those marvelous commentary tracks on the BSG DVDs (is there any better commentary on episodic writing than those commentary tracks?). The...

A concluding point

Hi David, Do you have a plan to conclude the CD story at some point (and therefore are writing with a concluding story arch in mind), or do write small, episodic story archs as they arise from the current plotline(s)? Do you write big chunks of the story before you start illustrating, or write only ...
