Pete Says: I regret to inform you all, This is the last official Chain Bear Sunday! :( I had to fire them because I was sick and tired of putting up with their lack of ability to spell "honor" and "color" as well as other words.

Stuart Says: Honestly Pete (and Sluggites), it's been an honour - Sluggy was the first webcomic I ever read and is still my favourite, so thank you for letting us get involved! To those who saw us passing by - I hope we brought some colour to your Sundays! Lots of love, Stuart and Lauren.

Pete Retorts: See what I mean? I and I thought *I* was bad at spelling. Stuart, Lauren, You guys have been fantastic to work with and you're welcome back anytime, and I mean that. Little black bowler hats off to you!

Welcome to “Portraits Week”! I’ve been playing around with Photoshop painting over the last few weeks and have decided to run some of my projects this week while I gear up to work on the next Sluggy Freelance book. This Sasha portrait is my second attempt. You’ll see my first attempt on Friday. I 'painted' on top of a pencil sketch that I ran on the site but I don’t have the link to that sketch handy. I hope someone will put the link in the  reactions forums.

Comic for 04/27/2010

This is my third attempt at Photoshop painting. I think this came out better than the Sasha portrait, but something about the squareness of the head makes Aylee less feminine than I had wanted. I also think the glowing eyes could have been handled in a more sophisticated way. Still, every time I do one of these, I'm learning more about the painting process. And that's worth the journey no matter the results. Again, this was from a pencil sketch  somewhere on the site, and I hope someone will put the link in the reactions forums.

Comic for 04/28/2010

My fourth attempt is Izzy. My painting play started before introducing her character, so when I was designing her I decided to sketch her and then paint her. this is my second favorite painting of the week, and I think I learned the most from it.

Comic for 04/29/2010

My fifth attempt is Gwynn. In this case I painted over most of the pencil lines, but I'm much more deft with a pencil than I am with a mouse or wacom pen. That made the linework on this one much more blunt and blurred. But I'm happy with the way I was able to bring a variety of colors into it instead of just logical skin-tone choices and still have it read, even if I didn't do Gwynn's beauty justice. Again, this was from a pencil sketch  somewhere on the site, and I hope someone will put the link in the reactions forums.

 

Comic for 04/30/2010

Happy Friday! Here was my first attempt that fueled me doing this series of paintings. It was a quick goof-around with my old and dusty wacom tablet, but there's something about it I absolutely love. And even though I learned much from the other four 'paintings', this one is still my favorite of the week. Of course there are two more pieces of art for this Sluggy week! And Monday brings 4U City Blue!

Comic for 05/01/2010

You didn't think I'd leave the guys out did you? Pardon me while I get artsy and do a portrait of the original stick-figure sidekick, Shirt Guy Tom, with "Stick in Repose"! I will never be able to draw stick figures as bad as Tom but I shall never stop trying!

Comic for 05/02/2010

BOO! Sorry, Book 10 work has put me in a ghostly place! I just finished this one ten minutes before update, a portrait of Beth (the sobbing woman) from Kesandru House! I'll probably drop this into Book 10 if I need to fill an extra page as I'm not sure how long the bonus story will be (IF there is one, but my guess is there will)!

Hey everybody! I’m really sorry about having to run filler art today. I went camping this weekend and left early thinking I’d have plenty of time and energy to finish the 50% completed strip targeted for today, but it turns out I am just energy-depleted. Still, getting out in the fresh air was good for me, right? Anywho I know many of you are impatient with this story after 4U City Blue’s intensity. I will keep that in mind as I try to move the story ahead briskly.

And yes, I doodled Elvis on thee side of the log with a fire-burned stick for no good reason and liked it so much I took a picture of it, having no idea it would end up here.

Comic for 07/03/2010

I don’t necessarily like this sketch but I do like elements of it. It just doesn’t feel like Sasha to me. Maybe this is what she looks like when something actually bothers her.
