Yep, as many as you guessed, Atty is an artist. And very passionate about it. It's a huge part of his character, so it's nice to finally be able to tell you all xD

So... If Atty draws the same as the style that I've been drawing this comic in, that ESSENTIALLY means he's drawing super realism, doesn't it... 'Cept for he missed all the dark lines and such.

See y'all soon.

EDIT: I was just waiting for someone to say artception.

Yo dawg, I put a comic in your comic so you can draw while you draw.

Just realized... George must have had a bad history of people asking if she's a boy or a girl, particularly with whichever (if any) professor gave her her first Pokemon.

Hah, I've almost had that pegged for a couple of years now. I say almost because I had guessed that he was a webcomic artist. Seemed to be an appropriately meta thing for this particular comic. Still feels nice to know I got the general idea right.

Later we'll find out that it was Atticus the one who wrote this comic.
He just guessed the parts that he wasn't there for.

I often think about how to portray art in a comic, since its kinda weird to have characters draw the same way as you do.
Solution: They draw really realistically, or they draw even more stylized.

Artists bump? Are you referring to how he's holding the pencil? Does that mean there’s a reason why I’ve always held stuff like that and now I can tell my mum to go jump when she tells me off for holding it that way? ... Does he have terrible hand writing unless he goes really slow too?

@Vi: I believe it refers to the callus that develops on the finger on which the pencil rests on (from the pencil rubbing against the skin). Most of my friends have them from note taking in AP classes (although for some reason I got a very smooth dent).

I love him with glasses... Just... Mmphfff... Why does he look so good in glasses!

Is he farsighted(or whatever it's called)? Since he doesn't use glasses when walking around?

Glasses... @Conwant: nearsightedness and farsightedness refer to whether you need glasses for seeing close or far objects...either one might wear glasses ALL the time or only for reading...in this case, Atty just needs reading glasses (he could be near or farsighted for all we know...guess we'd have to see the magnification of his glasses to find out if H0ly doesn't tell us lol)

artist's bump @Vi: People who write and draw by hand(frequently) have a bump on one of their fingers where the pencil/pen rubs. It's a little rough/raised spot (like a callous), as soon as I saw the caption I looked to see if I had mine in the same spot cause I usually don't think about it, sure enough there it was! It's just a spot where the skin is thicker from the pencil rubbing it.

So THAT'S what that is on my ring finger! I always thought it was a defect or something from me holding my pencil that way! Never knew that's what it was, or that others had it.

@Zero_Artist: Why do people say that? The film isn't called "Dreamception." The dream-within-a-dream concept from the film isn't even what "Inception" refers to (it refers to the concept of planting an idea in someone's subconscious so deep that they can become obsessed with it.)

I understand that you didn't invent the joke, but it would be funnier if people said something like "ART WITHIN ART, THE ART IS BECOMING UNSTABLE" or something. It's not perfect, but it's a lot funnier than the most basic and unfunny form of pun in existence.

Pencil That means he's also carrying a little knife, judging by the way his pencil's been sharpened.

That sounds horribly like a euphemism, although for what I don't think I want to know.

bumps I. Have. No. Bump. As my whole hand moves when I write and I pinch the pencil rather than hold it, I end up with a very slight soft spot on thumb, fore and middle fingers.

Artist Bumps Tho I rarely draw, I draw on the computer, so.... mouse bumps?... No I don't think I have any bumps. I *DO* have what friends and family call "freakily baby soft hands". I guess that is a bad thing for a 22 year old guy to have?

Artist Bump? I draw all the time, but I don't understand the "artist bump" thing... Maybe it's because I suck on my fingers (horrible habit, don't do it) so this "bump" never formed. I dunno.
