Has anyone else been shocked to find out there were lost? You head off all confident you know where you're going even though you've only been there once before. When you can't find the place after a while you start to wonder, that's when it hits you.

Sorry this is so late I kind of lost a day yesterday. had a bit of a bad night. After being too tired to keep drawing I of course could not get to sleep until 11 am then got woken up 1 wrong number, 2 "butt dials", 1 apology, and once by my parents reminding me that i had to make an appearance in an hour and a half at a family friend's BBQ. Then I had 1 hour before I had to be back for the night shift. I had only gotten 5 hours of very interrupted sleep so I tried to sleep again with similar mixed results. Only 2 more weeks of this though then I won't be constantly woken up during the day by family and at night with care giving. All it will take will being over 200 miles in the middle of no where.

In the second panel, first time I looked at it, the signposts looked like duct tape on a wall. Weird.

And that coffee looks more like chocolate?

I do not drink coffee myself so I did not have any handy throw throw up into the air for a reference. I ended up just experimenting for half an hour till i could not think of anything better to try. If anyone has recommendations on how to make the coffee look more realistic I would appreciate it since i will have to draw it dripping down the wall in the next page.

Tried my best to come up with anything helpful about coffee, and I can think is "it's black, unless it has other stuff in it". Think of it as if it was colored water when planning the dripping.

I don't drink coffee either, so all I know is from watching coffee exist.

coffee tends to be lighter because of all the crap we put in it. The main issue with Robin's coffee is that it seems too much of a rich brown instead of watery three shades lighter. So, for future reference, a tan that is two shades darker than normal would be perfect.

Oh my....I just became the definition of a coffee snob

That's a pretty good generic description; in terms of computer graphics, try "low saturation".

added more stuff to Robin's coffee. I'll tease her about it being more girly later bur for now is the color better?

Looks like chocolate to me. But I think that's only after I read the comment.

Loving Robin's shiny jacket. >_>

Also, coincidence street. XD Man, what a world to live in.

Oh, as for living 200 miles in the middle of nowhere: It's cool. Just stock up enough food for life. Then you're ready for the zombie apocalypse too.

(Also, it seems that bug might be caused by refreshing the page, not by a new page being uploaded... Neither is consistent. :/)

You would be surprised how many things are on coincidence street :P

On my system it looks more chocolaty now; but, that could be my monitor settings. I suspect using your color picker with its default settings in a natural (intuitive) way doesn't adjust saturation. When you have more time (200 miles) check out forums on your preferred paint program (I think you've said you use Gimp) for a discussion of color specification and selections.

I just came back to this page and I realized how cool the Whack word bubble is. Nice touch!
