I don't mind saying I dreaded doing this page. Bitch to thumbnail and a bitch to draw. Awkwardly sized figures, AND facing right? Blaaagh. But enough moaning- I think a lot of us struggle drawing people facing a certain direction. From what I've found, generally, right handed people hate drawing people facing right and left handed people hate drawing people facing left. Any opinions?

I asked around whether or not to spell out what he's doing on this page... The general consensus was, don't. He's looking at his jumper then looking inside his bag. That's about it, really...

Hope to see y'all soon~

Replies! Get 'em while they're hot.

Floo Phantom: I admire your determination for first post =D And that may be the case.

ApaFox: Ahh but his bag holds many things...

Seryou: Thankyou =D Happy it has that reaction XD

Taseli: The small contributions matter.

Ganato: If not Atty'll have to find something new to blame his weight on...

Yamataro: I wondered whether people minded or not if I responded o3o... But to hear that you do, I shall happily keep doing so =D

KiriMiko: Perhaps, perhaps...

Supersheep64: They both smoke in a sense. A match made in heaven.

HyrulePhantasian: I use a fair bit of hatching, but the grey for Attys hair and the like are added digitally.

Dragonmaiden50: Just doing his job 8D

Mosama: I meant... uh... our right XD You do? Interesting, interesting...

Christen Banks: ... Okay... that was pretty awesome lol XD Nice man.

Jazeki: Thankyou =D

Death-Destination: Whenever he forgets to pretend not to act cute, it shines through.

Diao-chan: Thanks =D That you like them is why I put them in so cheers!

LuluMoon: Kahn's sister's head.

Orangecookies: I knew it D8 *claps hands together*

Bliss41: Ho man, that jumper's unique ;D

SuperBiasedMan: Thankyou for confirming my claim! And DT wasn't hiding in his bag XD There's something else in there.

ZobraTH: I did wonder who would be the first to say that...

Mdg245: As soon as the left handed people come along I'll be sure this is pretty watertight.

Angelbliss: Nooo 8D You must wait until the grand reveal, presuming I ever reach it. Or maybe it's just ciggies.

Metalicar67: This is what I thought the reasoning was too, but oddly I still have the same problem when sketching digitally.

02321: Cheers x3 Glad you like.

Hero of Comedy: If you do get into it and develop an opinion post me the results.

Jemmi: I did double check this page for innuendos and couldn't find any so I'd be curious to know what you mean.

Alicerush: He's back in the comic and as meek as ever.

Sanatonya: Now what do we do about it 8D...

Terra325: Hidden away somewhere.

toboe059: His comment to dragonthing was because, he just thanked Kahn who helped pull him up. DT, on the otherhand, did nothing XD;...

Leppra: Cheers =D

Webcomiclover: I'm... not sure he was. It was something else in his bag he was looking at. But let's pretend anyway 8D

Newyorkdefendertalon: Aye, it's always hard to fit the full bodies in. But I try to when I can... Here and there to keep me on my toes. Generally as long as it's not talking heads, I'm happy.

Yexis: Y-yes D8 *salutes* Working on it!

Pride1289: I curse you. *Jellus*

Bluberd: And DT loves you too. He'll take any love he can get...

Christo556: Ahh but why would Atty need to wear anything else at all if he has his jumper?

Frigandier: We're not alone~ We struggle together. I'm glad you appreciate my work XD <3 Makes it worthwhile.

Hanisweet: It's a good point you raise, and sometimes when I'm really struggling, I do do this. But generally I try not to, simply because... I wanna overcome this thing.

Pinali: Me too. Someone should really look into this.

shukumei: I guess Kahn's just a bit muddled by this bizarre jumper checking dance he's performed in front of him XD And I'm certainly gunna keep up with the replies now =D Thankyou.

Mr Aids: Hahaha! Aye. That'll be a far later page when it all comes too much for Atty. When his only sanctuary is huddle inside his jumper.

Zetina: They are blastedly important.

Erase: Lucky thing D8 I'd love to be ambidextrous. Could go for twice as long when you knacker your hand inking.

Pinguicula: It's what I'm trying to do but it's slow coming XD

Mythee: I can, but then that leaves all the other panels the other way XD And... I SHOULD learn to do it properly, really...

Squishy_kitten_76: Flipping your work is something you should do anyway, I do it all the time. The reason it looks different is because you see it with a fresh eye, and see all the mistakes. It's the best and harshest critique.

CINLAG: He might be. And DT is cleaning the dirt off him XD God knows someone's gotta take care of his appearance...

Laramei: ... Mind? I'd be honoured. Wow. If you do that, you so have to let me see a picture, please XD

pwii: Would be gutted if anything happened to em what with how much they cost.

Speak92: I'm trying to seek one out.

Sal: I find odd things harder XD; weird perspective isn't so bad usually because it's fun, and harder to tell if it's wrong 8D *bad h0ly*.

Three-legged-cow: WILL SOMEONE PLEASE THINK OF THE PORN.

Thanks for commenting guys!

This is what this page should have been according to my brain.
Also, he was worried that the dead body he always carries around might have fallen out of the bag, yes? O.o

Pfft, jumpers can strectch FURTHER than that.

And more importantly, who cares? There's a dragon hiding in his backpack. Fuck reality.

Very nice page too, love the subtlety of Atty getting worried ;)

Oh yeah, I'm a righty and find it way awkward to draw people facing right, cause my hand gets in the way. It's so much easier and more comfortable to draw them facing left or forward.

Funny enough I've noticed that I'm more comfortable drawing people facing to the left, or from bust up. It's usually the easiest way for me. Full body is alright but it's hard to cram into a comic page sometimes. I try to do something interesting though because I would think a comic full of talking busts would get boring after a while. And that's kind of a separate tangent there XD

Yanno, that's an interesting observation, with the righties-vs-lefties and their difficulties with drawing. As a rightie, I really do hate drawing facing the right, and I've always wondered why- now I know I'm not alone in that wondering-why. :B

As always, fantastic job with this page, I'm flabbergasted as usual with the quality and time you put into these suckers. Dragonthing and Not Helping is my new OTP. <3

From what I've found, generally, right handed people hate drawing people facing right and left handed people hate drawing people facing left.

This is correct, but I'm pretty sure nobody has figured out why. XD

Mystery alert! Mystery alert! I can't wait to find out what he is so worried about. The only things I can think of are his cigs and the special pokeball he was asked to deliver. Or he could be just checking that all his stuff is still there (I know I would after almost falling off a cliff). What's up with Kahn's expression btw?

I personally suck at drawing people from left or right (or any angle for that matter) and I am right handed, but your statement makes sense. I think you did awesome on this page. Also, I agree with Yamataro. I always love to see your responses and especially so when it's a response to me ^_^ Man this is a long comment, I always have so much to say about your comic. Looking forward to the next page.

You know, when people say they dread drawing something, I usually expect to see epic action and perspective. not 'wtf is wit this jumper mate!' teehee

I used to have trouble, but I forced myself to draw that direction a lot and now I can't remember which direction I actually favor. Huh. I think it conforms to your theory.
