      Full Waste Basket

      7 months ago

      I spent hours and hours last night with my dictionary and thesaurus to write a super wordy and deep comic for tomorrows Balls 2 That comic. I just tossed it out and quickly wrote something here at the last minute (in five minutes) and it's WAY better. I think that is my writing style: indepthly write out a massive an complex script, then toss it out for a great fart joke.

      Do you do any writing? You ever toss out any of your writing?

      sitting pretty

      8 months ago

      finally feeling like I'm all moved in to the new apartment. Just picked up a desk yesterday and set up all my stuff. This last year has been weird. I've been staying with friends and family as I was going through the immigration process, and I'm so thankful for all their support, but damn am I loving having my own space again. A wee little corner I can call my own.

      Now to get some more decorations up on those walls.

      "you can't just make creativity happen, but you can make a place where it will come to you"

      - I totally forget who I'm quoting here.

      No RTX this year

      10 months ago

      I can't make it to RTX this year :(

      You see, OboeCrazy and I are getting married and I will be moving to the United States to be with her. It's just the visa / immigration process isn't exactly simple and at this stage we are at I can't cross the border.

      I'm super bummed out that I won't get to see you guys there. But hit me up online, I'll just be sitting around in Canada doodling as I do. Shoot me a message, say hi.

      chillin' in the dungeon

      10 months ago

      So in these hot days I've been finding myself with the blinds drawn and the AC on full.. how about you? Or are you a sun worshiper?

      Been playing a fair bit of Dungeons and Dragons since Fifth Edition came out, and Oboecrazy has been been the dungeon master so I probably get away with more shit than I normally would.

      But I've been drawing up our characters and its been a lot of fun. Do you play? Would you like me to draw up one of your characters? (y'know, for a small fee)

      large print

      11 months ago

      So with today's comic I made a large print to go with it for a limited time; until I post the next comic, in this case, Monday. If enough people order one, I think I'll do this more often.

      Have a look at the comic and print here

      I love this show, and now, I'm on it! ---> click here to see review for Balls 2 That

      There is like diddly squat on YouTube for webcomic reviews. And really, that is the best way to review comics, to be visual, and not just a text filled blog.

      It's a bit long winded for a review show, but it's actually has an over all story arch to the show. It's a bit rough at the beginning, but by season 3 it really comes into it's own, I'd definitely recommend you check it out from start to finish at some point.

      today's doodle

      almost made it

      1 year ago

      Wow, am I beat. This last weekend I attempted to do a 24 hour live stream of making Balls 2 That comics and doodles for anyone in the chat ... I made it almost 23 hours, but seems not resting up the day before did not help. I passed the fuck out.

      But it was a hell of a lot of fun. This last year I set myself do do more adventure comics rather than short strip comics and while they were better in production value I found that they were not as fun to comment on and keep up with as they were uploaded. Audience participation really dropped off. And really if you're gonna do anything online, that is really the biggest part of it all. So this last weekend of getting to reconnect with the readers of my comics was amazing.

      We did a donation drive to help raise some money for new equipment for the comics. My computer is hilariously out of date. We were barely able to stream at all. We did raise a fair bit of money, almost enough to get me the computer I will need, but hopefully now as con season has started, we can raise a few bucks more and get up to date on hardware.

      thank you so much everyone who came out and supported us. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU.
      And as soon as I can set up a better computer we will definitely make live streaming more of a regular thing. Hope to see you there.

    • c040242

      I still think you should do one comic where it starts in your style with you Burnie saying sorry to you but comics are an out dated thing and the site is trying to keep up with a more modern feel and they are running with somthing new, as you question what that is you notice that as the panels go on they start to devolve losing their colour and detail before the last panel where it is the very simply (yet beautifully animated) drawn Rooster Teeth animated adventures

      Hi Luke.

      I'm the host of the RTUK FanCast, the most popular RT community podcast in the world (probably)

      I was wondering if you weren't to busy if you'd be willing to do an interview with us for a future episode.

      I understand you may be busy with stuff, however it would just be a 20-30 minute interview over Skype about you're drawing and how you got involved with RT.

      Let me know either way

      All the best

      Robin
