So our trip to Las Vegas did not go as planned. As we flew out on the Monday, I was sick all day. Felt sick on the plane on the way there, and then got really, really sick as we arrived to at the hotel. We stayed at the MGM Grand, and our trip was only 3 days long. So getting sick really ruined our first day. I won’t go into the details, but the comic can let you know where I spent the majority of the night.
At around 3am, Nichole started getting the same symptoms, and so for her, day 2 was a write-off. My symptoms were still iffy, but at least I got to get out of the hotel and eat some food and spend some time with the friends we were meeting down there.
Day 3, our final full day, we finally got to go out as a group, see some of the neighbouring hotels and some of the attractions. We also went to see a Cirque show that night at the Bellagio. So we definitely tried to make the most of our final day and see as much as possible.
The next day, Thursday, we flew home. A whirlwind trip, with lots of trolling about getting married, just to agitate our parents.
This was quite the ambitious comic this week, but I’m really happy with how it turned out, even if it was a little late.
The idea came to me while playing the Last Guardian, and as I was appreciating the environments, I would always catch Trico off in the distance watching me, almost stalking me. Like he was almost studying me. And I started thinking that this game could easily be a horror type game where you’re always trying to outrun this large beast.
To answer any questions regarding the first panel, we ended up seeing Split, which was fantastic.
Aside from that, I’m slowly getting the hang of the comic, picking up new techniques to increase my speed, and settling on a visual style. And I might have to try and pull off two comics this week as I’ll be in Vegas on the 27th, and only coming home a few days before the weekend. We’ll see how it goes. I do have some ideas around Gears of War 4 as Illestrader and I just wrapped that game, so I could probably throw something together.
I also need to spend some time on this side and get some content and links up. Here’s the facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/StrangerThanFriendship/. I have to think of other ways to promote the comic. Always something to work on…
Anyways, be good.
