Arthur, King of Time and Space


Remember a month and a half ago when I discussed Websnark? Friday he posted a list of webcomics his readers have recommended to him which he hasn't yet had the chance to check out. Arthur, King of Time and Space was on it, alongside things like Count Your Sheep and Homestar Runner and Striptease that win awards. If he tries Arthur, King of Time and Space and likes it then my readership could suddenly get very large. And maybe stay large. Hell, I should go check my stats now.

Recording the creative process reloaded

Today's is another strip originally scripted as four panels that ended up falling on a Sunday. Unlike the last time this happened I decided not to fill this one out with extra added material - just not to constrain myself to weekday panel size. In the battle to experiment with Sunday strips there are no rules.

In other recording of the creative process: How obvious is it that some of the colors I use vary? When I've assigned to a character's clothes or hair a color that isn't part of the default MSPaint pallette, I don't always remember the next time what its mix numbers were. I know I do it with the color Gawaine and Lot and Gawaine's brothers wear. And I've just realized that Uriens' hair has been subject to the same inconsistency. Well, I've been expanding the white streaks in Uriens' hair anyway so they hopefully don't look so much like, as one loyal reader has suggested, some passing bird's target practice - maybe Uriens will just go all white by the time we see him next. I've already thought of an in-story explanation for it.
