Fear Before the Fall P 2  
It's so hot. Gosh August is the worst month. It's so hard to cool the other rooms since we only have one AC in the living room and this is the time of year when you really start to feel it. We've toyed with the idea of an AC in every room. Problem with that is we'd lose our windows. I wonder how hard it would be to cut a hole in the concrete instead to keep our windows free? But it gets so hot in Chris's room I can't work on the laptop in there. The other day I set up a table in the living room and worked in there. It was kind of nice though a bit bright for computer work. But I get to watch the chicks and Bullet. Today I will work out here again. But then the opposite happens. Once it's nice it's TOO dark so I go back in Chris's room which still gets hot at night.

The chicks are getting big, but still not big enough to be let out and integrate with the rest of the flock. Yesterday I thought I heard their voices changing. It sounded like someone was trying to cluck. I love my salmons. So adorable. I will take pics soon. I'm amazed that Raptor and Espresso are still around. They're so old and look terrible but I guess they're too ornery to go yet. I had not expected those to be the last survivors of the original flock.

Yesterday was great. Chris took the whole day off instead of half a day which was nice. We both needed it and it was a low key day. We mostly stayed home but he did take his truck in to have the AC fixed. Yes more AC problems. Mine will be next hopefully. But yeah it wasn't reliable and it would work sometimes but not others. And we drove to have lunch yesterday and a five minute drive was killer in the month of August. Sorry can't have a car with no AC in Florida. Just stupid. But that's all fixed now.

So we just had a quiet day at home, drawing, gaming and watching Star Trek DS9. We've started season 3 now and it's finally getting dark plot wise. I love that. This is such a desperate series.

Ok so yes I've been drawing a lot. Finished the second page of Fear Before the Fall. So check this out.

Translation of my horrible handwriting.

Frame 4: Disgust: Way to go flame head!
Anger: WHAT?
Disgust: You killed Fear! And you made Sadness cry! You've gone too far this time!
Frame 5: Joy: You ok?
Frame 6: Huh?
Frame 9: Joy: It's ok it's me. You're safe now. I was really worried about you that time.
Fear: (thinking) I can see that.

BTW, so you know the reaper is a Helloween reference from Keeper of the Seven Keys and Time of the Oath. Everyone thought Fear had died. He got hurt pretty badly being on fire even. But now his powers are starting to show. He could see Joy's fear but he still doesn't know what is happening to him.

Current Mood: Hot

You don't have central AC for your house? I thought that in FL everybody would have that since it gets so hot in summer.

We've had a window unit for about two years now.

What do you think of all the art I've put up?

I don't know what to think about it since I still haven't seen Inside Out yet. I think you've managed to creepify Fear very well though.

Well you can imagine what the roles of each emotion should be. But thanks. I'm glad you liked what I've done to Fear. Check out some of the official trailers on youtube and you'll get an idea.

Holy crap...ok you know, you draw these characters so dang well! I LOVE how you drew Sadness! Anger reminds me of the bad little boy you see with a slingshot who broke a window acting all innocent. What I didn't do anything wrong? Great, great expressions. That bottom one with Fear looking over to Joy then the absolute EEK face is frigging awesome. Just lovely. I don't know why I'm so ape shit about this comic, but I am. Your drawings are great and the story plot is going to be really interesting. Keep it up! Just amazing.

Thanks. I really enjoy drawing these. Joy is the hardest for me though. I have a hard time with her and feel I don't make her right. Sadness is pretty difficult too. The other three are fun. Hehe yeah to him it's just normal to smack Fear around. He doesn't see the big deal. Thanks. I had to show the transition from confused to freaking out and that needed a few frames. Would be so much better if it were animated as a film though. I'm very glad you like this. Would be nice to have some as excited about this as I am. I'll do my best to keep this level of motivation I have.

Well sometimes as long as you even touch just one person with your works, you accomplished a lot...or so that saying goes about that sort of thing. You know you have a fan in me and that's not being biased.

Aw thanks. I appreciate that.

We still have to see this movie. You're really nailing the art style though!

I hope you can get to see it. It's very good. Thank you. I'm glad you think so.

I can't wait for Sept. One more week and hopefully the cooler fall temps will arrive. Oh freezing hot water bottles? I hadn't thought of that. I don't think I have one. I do have one of those ice ones for head aches but well best thing is to be in the living room for now.

Sadness is so annoying yes. But everyone got scared. They really thought Anger had killed Fear. I think it will be the first time he used a fire punch. Disgust would appropriately be disgusted by that action and get on his case about it. Yes Joy was very afraid she'd lost part of her team. It has already started though Fear doesn't even know it yet. Thanks. I love reapers and it was fun to draw one.

Yeah the heat was pretty brutal down there when I went. For some reason I didn't mind it much. I guess I was having too much fun to let it bug me. Plus most of the lines and rides at Disney were indoors in the AC. It wasn't like at Hershey Park where I'm dying on the lines. I wish I could tolerate cold and hot weather equally.

How old are Raptor and Expresso? I don't even know how long the average domestic chicken lives because every source I read has a different answer.

This second page is really cool. Poor Fear. I think he's adorable when he gets freaked out. In the first scene with him in the movie I giggled at how freaked out he got over the wire on the floor.

It's even worse now. I am looking forward to Fall.

They are 5 years old and I think 6-10 is average depending on breed. They look pretty old and bad but are hanging in there. They are still the dominant birds of the flock.

Thanks. Yeah I felt bad for him. He got hurt pretty badly. I think this page is the last time you see him freaking out like this. From here out he'll be finding his powers. That was so cute. That was his first job ever I think. He didn't take into account the cart behind her. haha.
