Behind the Scenes - A Russian Doll gets an Abortion

Today, one of the most popular strips on the site.

OK for this one I actually had to look hard to find something interesting to put up. You'll understand what I mean soon. For starters, lets bring up what I actually managed to find:

These are the very early doodles of the strip. I tried to have three different options: one where you could see the dolls head, one from the point of view of the doll, and one where you could see everything from a wide angle shot.

I was of the idea that since the smaller dolls had been aborted, they should look dead. But the writers wanted the dolls to look stoic like they normally do, so we went with that. Now here's the part that explains what I meant before. This is the draft I made of the strip:

And here's the strip itself:

The changes are literally non-existent. The dolls on the back went from a box to a table. That's it.

It's good when things flow this well! This strip is very popular both for the joke and for the art.

La Parroquia del Monaguillo!

So I entered this contest to win an iPad. It's hosted by a spanish radio show called La Parroquia del Monaguillo (The Parrish of the Altarboy) but it has nothing to do with religion lol. It's a comedy show.

The first design I made was this:

It was not well received by the community of the site... Honestly, I kinda rushed it because I thought the deadline was sooner than expected.

So it didn't do very well and apparently you can only use 5 colors or something, so I had to re-do the thing. I didn't want to get rid of the drawing, so I used it for the next one. As you can see it says "Delorean" on the Vespa, trying to reference them going back in time, as the new book they have out is about the 80s in Spain. That didn't translate well apparently so I changed it a bit:

Added some 80's motifs, the time-traveling clichés of the clocks and calendars, and added the title of the book (oh, and reduced the number of colors).

This one did a little better. The contest, however, isn't over yet. You can vote if you'd like here:

Wish me luck! :D

I'm really excited about Black and White

I know, it's a "kid's game". But I've been playing it for years and the new games look awesome.
