Nah, you need to embrace the arrogance!! Write a book called "How To Be Perfect Like Shaenon K. Garrity and Write Perfect Webcomics Like Shaenon K. Garrity! by Shaenon K. Garrity"

You can find the Narbonic comic yourself.
Sean Riedinger (ariamaki) says:
Making individual characters look distinct is something a lot of people neglect in comics-- Just look at Tim B^Uckley, or (despite his comic being otherwise quite good) Mookie.
Now, for good variance, El Goonish Shive is very good-- Height and race differ all over the place, and people actually have different frames and body types. Which is also a trait of Sarge and everything she works on.
Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:
My problem is getting the same character to come out looking the same way twice in a row.
You object to all characters looking the same ... and yet your job is editing manga?
Bo Lindbergh (blgl) says: Hey, Shaenon, how do you write your comics?

I have Ed's problem, too. And also, I can't seem to learn to draw faces properly in profile. The mouths and chins never seem to work. Which is a bit limiting.
I've always admired the way your characters seem to be properly grounded in their surroundings, even in the early art.

I remember reading the script for the "More Fun" strip made me suspect that you were even more talented at pure writing than comics. Some time later, when I read the complete Narbonic filename story, I confirmed it.Log In or Register to post a comment! It's free!
