TWB errors...

Actually, I completely forgot to draw his tail. Weird. happy.gif

I've mentioned before, a few times in the past, that sometimes the mechanical "here's how you use a pencil and a pen" part of the brain overwhelms the logical "here's how you spell [i]Regret[/i]" part of the brain- which is what leads to all those photos of tattoos that say "I Have No Regerts" or "God Lovs Me" or with the girl's name spelled "Danelee" instead if "Danielle". happy.gif

I had a book on airbrushing techniques years ago, and the author at one point relates how he was doing boardwalk caricature T-shirts. On one shirt, he mispelled "Bob", airbrushing it on the shirt as "Bod", much to the amusement of the crowd.

But if you do anything artistic- especially repetitive stuff like a webcomic- that kind of thing happens all the freakin' time! happy.gif

Back in the day, I used to regularly forget to shade Swampy's hands. I can't count the number of times I'd been trying to draw Red and was halfway through sketching a Swampy hat on him before I caught myself.

I recall one in particular, years ago in the pre-color days, I was staring at the finished, reduced, ready-to-upload strip and thinking to myself something didn't look right. I couldn't for the life of me figure out what it was. I went off to do some mindless surfing for a bit, came back and immediately noticed I hadn't drawn any of Pirta's spots.

I've shown Sandy getting her hair braided at the paintball field, only to have her back to a regular ponytail two strips later. After switching to color, I've almost colored Doc as Bruno on at least a couple of occasions, I've reflexively almost colored Jinx' ears black (since all the foxes and several of the other pointy-eared characters have black or dark-toned ears) and so on and on. happy.gif

I'll re-tail swamps later this evening, when I have time. happy.gif
