hello!!! i would just like to say that i really really love your webcomic (if u didnt notice the url and icon haha!) and that you are a huge inspiration to me!!! ohs is great and the characters are great and you are great and i hope you have a great day and rest of your week and such!!!
When you imagine Al, Brendan and Sulla speaking, what do their voices sound like? Do you imagine any particular voice actors for them?
I wrote this about a year ago, but to recap - almost from the beginning Al sounded like Ron Perlman, Brendan reminded me of young 1980s actors who’ve kept their boyish voices into their forties and fifties, and Sulla was just a lower-pitched, very expressive teenage girl voice.
When I thought recently about who could actually play them in a movie adaptation (HA HA), I came up with a few actors who look pretty different from how I originally pictured the characters but who would be amazing in the roles. It’s just embarrassing because the exercise hinges on deciding which actors I’d like to see make out. :T
Just a reminder that this Friday and Saturday I will be a guest at Cola-Con in Columbia, South Carolina. For those interested, I’ll be on a journalism comics panel with Matt Bors and David Axe on Saturday at 4. If you’re in town, come hear me talk about my past projects with David as well as a current project that isn’t about robots!
hi, i've saw yours amazing marbling results, like the ones you posted times ago i want to ask in details what's kind of paint do you use (acrylic, watercolors i don't know... also the brand) and the quantity of color that you use, i'm trying this technique and i have some problems to figure out what i'm doing wrong...
I did those pieces in a class, so I’m far from an expert on how to marble stuff, but here’s what I remember:
The paint’s acrylic - I think the brand’s called Golden - and it’s suspended on top of a mixture of water and carrageenan, which is a seaweed powder that makes the water more viscous (like jello water). You pour the water in a shallow tub and add the paint via eyedropper, then use a comb over the surface to create those crazy patterns. Before you lay any paper over the surface you have to spray the paper with an alum/water solution so it’ll take the paint.
Once you lay the paper on the paint it’ll take whatever pattern you’d made and you can lift it off, run it under water and let it dry. You have to skim the remains of the paint pattern off the top of the water each time you marble a new page, but you can use the same batch of water at least a dozen times.
