Poor choice of words there, Benny boy...

More color wee.

I really needa practice my coloring!
Especially since many of my future comic projects will be fully colored, haha.

Thanks everyone for the kind words yesterday! Feeling a lot better, to be honest it still doesn't feel quite "real"...Well, time for dealing with that later, as for this page...

I almost didn't finish on time.
There was an, uh, incident.

My step brother went outside to mow the lawn, and after about a half hour he came stumbling in through the back door, panicked and went straight to the floor. I was like holy shit, what happened dude?

Apppparently he ran over a hornets nest with the mower. Back home in Illinois I'd never even known that bees would nest in the friggin' ground but apparently it's common here. So he ran over it, got SWARMED by a shitload of hornets, and ran all the way back. He didn't get stung too badly at least. But he did bring bees with him.

Bees fucking terrify me. I was minding my own business drawing up my page and suddenly we're invaded by bees! We had to quarantine the downstairs and stayed upstairs while we waited for help to arrive. Which meant I was locked away from the craptop. Blegh!

Thankfully his grandfather came over to handle it and the nest. But holy shit. There's nothing worse than going into a room where bees were. Because who knows if they really killed them all?? There's a million places a bee could hide in this place...


Good ol' color free version;

You did excellent on the colors. I always wondered what Anne's hair color looked like. And wow, hornets suck. At least bees are good for honey. Hornets are just jerks. XD. I'm glad you were able to get this one right on time even with the hornet commotion. :-D

This color adds volume and depth to your artwork; looks great!! :D

Its bad enough they nest in wood and trees and crap!! I was walking my dog one day and saw a bee fly into a hole in the ground and I just about died.

Thanks!:)

Last summer my wife got hit by a bee that came out of the ground too, and we also live in Illinois :0

Great colors! And Benjamin, you should really stop now. Anne's getting real ticked ;D

Thanks!;D
I imagine Benny boy doesn't know when to shut it sometimes!

Ooh Benjamin, you should have kept your trap shut.

I agree that Wasps and Yellowjackets are jerks. A long time ago, my mom stepped on a nest when I was at my Grandpa Holcombe's house with her. We both ran inside and I was the only one who didn't get a sting... At least until I had thought I had gotten away from them all. One had flown in my shirt and meanly waited for me to get inside before it got me on the chest.

Seabiscuit
He really should have!

UGHHHHH.
Oh my god that's like my worst nightmare, having them in my clothes. Just reading that makes my skin crawl!
Not long ago some big ass black bee came after me for no apparent reason and stung me twice. Smashed the bastard into friggin' /dust/. Since then I've just avoided the outdors unless it's sundown. They're all evil!

I thought the bigger bees were more peaceful. I'll never make that mistake again! Never!

My mom's a beekeeper and most of the time our honeybees are quite tame but every once in a while, one bee will get ticked off for some reason and chase anyone it finds around the yard for a few laps trying to sting you. It's uncommon but I usually end up the target even though unlike my mom, I've never opened up the hive or even touched it. I guess the honey and pollination makes up for the occasional rogue bee.

...aahhhh D:

I can't even imagine the hardcoreness it would take to be a bee keeper, that is seriously amazing!
Dew Whiskers 15th Jul 2014, 12:22 AM edit delete reply
Dew Whiskers
Normally there isn't too much hardcoreness to it. We have Italian bees which are so tame you can open the lid and lift out the honeycomb frames to do maintenance and 90% of the time, they don't get mad enough to sting you. They'll even warn you before they start stinging(they warn you by bonking into you repeatedly and making a louder buzzing noise than normal).

I really like the colored pages.

Anne has the right idea about building a museum. Especially if it never goes back to being the way it does.

Oh yes. I sure thought so!

Ben's blue sweat and jeans make him look like he's wearing a Vault-tec jumpsuit. Coincidence, it's a post-apocalyptic world with mutants and stuff, and he's in something like diamond city.

I should stop comparing things.

Bwahah!

I'm a huge heathen and only very recently got around to actually playing Fallout (recently as in, like, this very month), and I'm noticing a lot of little things like this myself!:'D
