finished jan. 12 2022, "THIS GUY." was a test of electric zine maker and my own ability to finish something.
meant to be at least a little goofy even as it takes itself completely seriously.
as a note, guy's name is not a proper noun - just "guy".
printable version sized to US letter paper:
UNUSED SCRAP HEAP
nipples and "sexy" outfits below this point.
you've been warned.
this was the first go at making the "THIS GUY." zine, and boy is it different.
i was struggling to feel out the tools - and the program in general - at first. i thought it'd be fun to make it risque, but i was having so much trouble drawing in it that i gave up and just did whatever the hell instead.
guy hasn't existed long, so you can also tell i was struggling to feel him out. how stiff this old art is!
the original sketch for the 1st (2nd?) page. cigarette removed cause i had no idea if guy would smoke or not. leaned towards no because its funnier that way - still think so.
old page 4. booted for multiple reasons:
- the guy was drawn in mspaint and made transparent with CSP, which went against my own personal rule to draw everything in electric zine maker. why did i do it in the first place? iunno.
- it felt too embarassing.
- why's he getting into fights in the first place? took me 2 whole pages to give the why. by then, i just wanted to make a new page.
attempts for the last page. i wanted to reintroduce the sexy stuff for fun since guy started as an eyecandy concept...but i couldn't figure out text to pair with these.
