There are better ways to introduce yourself to your creations, but I'm not sure if lighting shrubbery on fire is one.
anyway I've been practicing like mad and I'm getting more control with the tablet. If this rate of improvement lasts I should be able to draw as good with the tablet as I can on paper in a week or so. Not that I can draw very well on paper. It will mean I can start experimenting with different ways to outline characters, as well as a few other things which should make it look cleaner overall. Today for example I was playing around with the inking tool which I think might give a smother line then the brush. I still need to find a way to compensate for not having a perfectly steady hand of course.

You are certainly drawing better than I can. ;)

So, you first reveal yourself to Robin, then the rest of your universe, except for Sparky. Poor Sparky. He is so left out. :P

the only one who can't hear the voices. It would make him the sane one in a crazy world if he didn't already have a screw loose.

Sanity is overrated. ;)

The first time you get a reply from a disembodied voice while talking to your self is the worst Robin, you get used to it trust me. ^^

Wouldn't it be neat if not hearing the narrator/director exempted Sparky from being directly affected. The director could still mess with him, but only indirectly by influencing others to do so.

Trasee, I think that Sparky is perfectly fine in his own little mad science world. Why bother revealing yourself to the person who has the best grasp on how your world works. To draw an analogy it would be as if someone independently derived all the core tenants of a religion without any divinely inspiration or prophets involved

Sparky does have a bit of immunity since he can't talk back to the director directly and won't realize that something has been done intentionally to vex him. mostly he's immune though because he would take it all in stride and that takes a lot of the fun out of it.

I see why. It must be hard to trouble someone who intentionally blows up his own lab and all the gizmos contained because "'splosions are cool"

Thanks i was a little unsure if i should have it black and white in the flashback or not, but the comic was black and white back then so i think it makes more sense. I did decide to keep a few other improvements i picked up since then though. the word bubbles and the gray scale to show that it was dark being examples.
