To be fair, Dude Brosmith is a pretty weird name.

Sorry for the delay, and now you are formally acquainted with the headphones-guy!

Coloured linework works really well in your comic!

I love the look of colored linework! A lot of Disney animated films also have colored linework, so I thought, "hey why not." XD

His middle name is "Hangfive." I'm semi-serious. ;D

Thank you!

Is Carl about to murder Dude?

I think Carl's about to murder Dude.

Seriously, I'd been wondering just how much inspiration you take from Disney animation (particularly from the 90s films, I guessed), but now I'm feeling pretty confident that the answer is "definitely some".

As always, love the frell out of this. Carl couldn't BE more creepy, eh?

Ohhh just wait till next page!

I do take a lot of inspiration from 90s Disney animation, as well as Looney Tunes and I was pretty influenced by Tex Avery for a while. So, it's safe to say that animation in general is a big influence. Besides comicking, I animate too. :D

Carl is the best creeper ever. He actually reminds me of my old best friend, who was a total creeper. He even kind of looks like him.

I love how Dude is unpacking his lava lamp and has already hung his Pink Floyd poster. Great work on all the thought put into the background. Just makes this comic that much more interesting!

Hahaha really? :U Hmm, a number of people told me they knew someone that looked a bit like Carl. Oh dear.

I'm a bit crazy when it comes to the details, so I put a lot of thought into the environments in this comic. It takes more time but I think it's worth it. :D

Haha. My friend was Puerto Rican, so I think Carl's slight ethnic vibe plays into that.

But yeah, the backgrounds are reminiscent of an animated work, actually, like you were saying. It reminds me of a painted backdrop that the characters were actually drawn into, and not as something that was added as an afterthought.

That's awesome. XD Carl's part Portuguese, so yeah, he definitely has that ethnic vibe.

Thank you! That means a lot to me; I put a lot of care into how the backgrounds look in each panel and page.

I get the curious feeling Carl is going to rape Dude. But that could just by the tiredness talking, since I did just get off work.

Well, he's gonna do something. XD
(On a side note, the only mature tag I put on this is for language, so there won't be anything of that sort. :U)

Okay. Now I feel better... a bit. "something..." sounds very foreboding.

I'm wondering... if you have a background environment shown twice from the same angle, will you redraw/repaint it or just copy and paste? I noticed the bunkbed in panels 3 and 4, and I got curious.
Even though I do screencap comics, which takes very little effort with the beautiful thing that is Photoshop.

I redraw it and repaint it. This is a weird theory, and it might have something to do with my animation background, but it gives a nice texture when you hand-draw something over again. It's extremely subtle and not everybody is going to notice I repainted it, but I think the extra effort is worth it. I feel like copy+paste deadens things, but that's just my own theory from someone who's still comic-experimenting.

(Confession though: I did copy and paste the ladder.)

I find it impressive how Dude's lamp has remained warm enough for the blobs of wax to keep moving ever since he packed it.

:D

Dude plugged it somewhere for a while, realized he didn't like it, so he was in the process of moving it somewhere else when Carl walked in.

And that, folks, is my hastily written excuse. :D

Damn, I wanna be Carl T T I mean, in the roommate-situation talkin' XD!

Dude Brosmith is actually an interesting name... unusual, but interesting =3
His face on second panel =D

Damn Carl, so cold it burns XD!

It's weird for me to notice Dude is like way more well-built than Carl,I mean... his arms looks kind of stronger... just sayin' XD!

I saw the Dark Side of The Moon @_@

This week was eternal for me, that's how much I love this comic =3

I loved drawing Dude's expressions in this page. XD Dude is more well-built than Carl, Carl's tall and lanky and Dude is a bit shorter but buffer. He surfs so he got some muscle.

Aww thank you! That means a lot to me :D

Dude is so draw-able, so to speak XD!

Being short but a bit buffy is quite nice, I've always found that quite manly and cute at the same time... Dude's no exception =3
