We loved arranging “Strong in the Real Way” - thank you Rebecca for being our “rock”! There are several people who helped bring this song to life. What you’re hearing is the result of Rebecca’s amazing songwriting, Grant’s blazing guitar playing, Roger’s fierce drum fills, and Deedee and Zach’s inspiring vocals! (I played the piano and synths.) Thank you everyone for your incredible performances!!!
AIVI! SURASSHU! GRANT! ROGER! LOVE! FOREVER!!!
Jeeeeeez, the moment I heard this I immediately recognized it as rebeccasugar's work. Her songwriting is just fantastic! I definitely did not realize how much I'd miss it after she left Adventure TIme, but I'm glad she's still doing great work on Steven Universe.
I Think I Love You Mantis-Chan!! #34 is up! Go give it a read!
Or, if you’re unfamiliar with this series, go read it from the beginning!
Thanks so much to everyone who takes the time to like and reblog posts about my comics! The more we can spread the word about this series to other people the better.
To see the solution check out the video below (I won’t spoil the reveal in a measly news post!)
Wow! Way to go Bob! :) A lot of research went into cracking a code in a mere playable teaser… I gotta say if we can expect this amount of dedication tackling other game mysteries moving forward I’m pumped to see how TGD handles their analysis on the rest of the Silent Hill series!
This is just insane. I don’t even really like horror games, but P.T. is just astounding. I wonder if this will actually translate to the new Silent Hills game.
I decided to do something I’ve been meaning to do for quite awhile now and started building sets for I Think I Love You Mantis-Chan!! in Maya.
Above is the front of Sumiko and Hitomi’s school building. The first of many pieces of architecture and rooms that I’m sure I’ll be building in the coming weeks.
It occured to me fairly early on in the creation of my comic that almost every background I will need for the first few arcs of Mantis-Chan are things that could be easily modeled in Maya and reused. Door frames, staircases, the characters rooms, they weren’t settings that I felt like I should have to completely redraw every time I needed a slightly different angle. So I’ve FINALLY begun the slow process of building the world of Mantis-Chan in 3D.
I used the toon rendering options in Maya so the building would be pure white and I could apply the shadows where I need depending on what the shot calls for/what time of day it is. I also used a basic outline around the edges of the building and the windows so I could drag and drop any screen tones where I needed them easily.
Special thanks to krudman for the idea! Hopefully this will help me speed up comic production when it’s done. :)
I Think I Love You Mantis-Chan!! #33 is live!
Thanks to everyone who’s reading, liking and reblogging this series. It means a lot to me to see people enjoying my stuff, and any reblogs are super handy for helping spread the word about my comic.
Until next week!
