If you're interested you can check out the thumbnail sketch I did for this page on the "About" page above.

I posted the thumbnail last week.

Also, if you're bored, there are THREE CATS wondering around this town on this page. See if you can find them.

I did some fan art for a few People and it was way more fun to do than I had thought. Once I catch up with Piper's Song for the next week or so I will likely do some more.

I'm with Seabiscuit... All my years of Where's Waldo are failing me...! I can only find ONE cat!

Thank you Sea! Believe it or not, but I kinda like making these types of pages, in spite of all the work involved.

Amazing! It looks like a postcard. :D

Thanks, IllustratorMan! I think that was what I was going for in this establishing shot.

Nice establishing shot! It looks like my hometown in Wisconsin.

Skweeee
Thank you Lirvilas. On my various road trips through Canada and the US, I've found that often if you were plopped in the middle of a town, at first glance, you'd find each country and its peoples indistinguishable from the other's.

I was bored enough to find two cats but not bored enough to find three. lol
Very nice cityscape!
Skweeee edit delete reply
Skweeee
Ha ha ha! Well I suppose finding the cats as an activity for someone who's bored may not be the best choice of excitement inducing activities.

Thanks man!!

I'd kick my best friend in the nads for half your talent...!
No seriously... Lemme know if that'll work cuz I'll do it.
Skweeee edit delete reply
Skweeee
Thanks for the compliment Outlaw!

Dude! No violence necessary! You've qot quite a bit of talent yourself, so don't underestimate your skills.

I would attribute any successes I've had, more to hard work rather than natural talent.

I like to think of myself as the younger version of Naruto as far as drawing goes. No talent, but high aspirations and a willingness to not give up and work hard.

Man this must have been so much fun to draw! I could only find two cats haha. Damn that last one

I know that you also enjoy building the environment around your characters as much as I do. So I know that you 'get it' as far as how it really enhances the narrative.
As far as hiding stuff, you should try it on your next panel with lots of environment details. It's lots of fun and may even encourage people to look longer and closer at your art.
fjames (Guest) edit delete reply
I think I have 3, should I say where?
Skweeee edit delete reply
Skweeee
You can PM them to me, or you can wait till the next page is updated next week, when I'll reveal their locations.

Whoa, this page is awesome. I found one cat, but it's 12:30 in the AM and I'm too sleepy to try and find things. X-D
Skweeee edit delete reply

Ha ha ha!! Thanks Dwayne! I'm glad you liked it. I'll say the locations on my next update.

I have two cats and a dog. I can say with some authority that cats are definitely the ninjas of the pet world.

I think I've found 18 cats, but I can't find any liquor stores! What kind of town is this??? My Kingdom for a Booger Burger!
Odd that Peeler joint is on same block as the Church.
Skweeee edit delete reply
Skweeee
Mo!!!!!!!! Don't worry, the liquor store is just to the right of the gas station.

Peeler joint with the Church? I don't see a problem. Just a handy way to get some forgiveness so one can avoid God's afterlife torture camp.

Amazing. I can't even imagine how long it took you to draw something that detailed.
Skweeee edit delete reply

Thanks Matt!! Basically it took me a full weekend (with breaks of course).

I could find only two cats. But two is more than enough

Hello Jolle. Hey, I'm glad that you looked.

wow...impressive scene. I think I found the cats...two for sure :-) the third I think my mind may be just playing tricks on me.
Skweeee edit delete reply
Skweeee
Hi Twistedfro! Thank you! To be honest I think I know which cat is the difficult one to make out. I should have said find two.

I love your use of perspective. 3 words: THAT IS AMAZING.
Skweeee edit delete reply

Thank you very much!!

This is one of my self taught things that I put a lot of work into. I practiced this quite a bit. Now, I end up enjoying these kind of pages.

Wow what an amazing piece of art!! XD You always pay such good attention to the perspective and layout of every panel, it's lovely.
Skweeee edit delete reply
Skweeee
Thanks Sky! Perspective, is one of the things I worked very hard to learn by myself. Once I felt like I was getting the hang of it, I began to enjoy creating my own environments for my story.

you're so good at drawing scenery! I always suck at it >.<
Skweeee edit delete reply

Do you know what's really encouraging for a self taught hobbyist like myself? It's getting compliments from a professional level artist like yourself. Thank you very much.
K. Tipping edit delete reply
K. Tipping
I wouldn't call myself a professional comic artist (not yet anyway), but I'm glad you think I'm that good. Keep on drawing. Your work is lovely and very distinctive.

This must have taken forever! It looks great!
Skweeee edit delete reply
Skweeee
Thank you very much.

It took a while, but I actually enjoyed puttering away at it for days. I just decided not to rush and just take my time with it. Quite therapeutic in the end I think.

Also, I got excited about the gas prices until I saw that it was in Liters
Skweeee edit delete reply
Skweeee
Ha ha Yeah! I suspect if you guys finally switch to metric you'll find that you're probably paying way less than we are per litre. I would figure it's close anyways.
