how can you not see the evil by bigbigtruck how can you not see the evil by bigbigtruck
From page 136 of the comic. I drew these three panels in one go and kind of like them laid together as a sequence on their own. Perhaps exploitable. :hmm:

Amal's vaguely-interested-but-neutral expression in that first panel was one of the toughest faces to draw so far.

I loved these panels. They successfully tell a mini story with just facial expressions.

(And it's good to see Amal laughing. :'D) Your art is fantastic as usual.

Haha, I always find that the weakest expressions are the hardest to draw, particularly neutral looks like this. xD; It works, though, and TJ's expressions are great as always. Those pages were great fun.

I get the feeling, despite his complexity, TJ is the easier of these two to draw, while Amal, for his simple design, is more of a challenge.

Maybe it's the simplicity that makes it more difficult, if that makes sense. Less detail, so it's more important to get them right, where tiny deviations in TJ's design are hard to notice because of his complexity.

And the dimples.

I like them both but I think Amal steals the cute show in these particular panels.

I think everything that's can be said about this has already been done, but I'll give it a whirl:

The comic as a whole has a special place in my cardiac-area, but the latest chapter in particular is quite refreshing. Something about the lack of dialogue, their body language, and the way you drew the park just clicks. It just feels...I dunno, grounded. Real.

I love how malleable TJ is when it comes to facial expressions, and how that tendency is slowly rubbing off on Amal. I love that your art can communicate so much, with or without words.

So, uh. Thanks for drawing the comic, and for making my day a little better.

Amal has the most charming smile. I can only imagine his laugh is every bit as pleasant! These faces are great, so much variety in only three panels. The expression is perfect! Don't be surprised if I start calling you an idol for this sort of thing.

<3 Oh god. I've been neglecting to keep up with TJ & Amal for quite a while and this just reminded me to hop on it. And I just fell in LOVE with this comic all over again. I really have to say, you have some talent. And I adore the way you were able to perfectly tell a story even without words with their little adventure. Their expressions are absolutely priceless.

Thinking of Amal explaining the goats as evil makes the sequence ten times funnier.
I was wondering what they were laughing about.


Makes me think of that awesome SNL comedy skit.

I love how you draw in the wrinkles around Amal's eyes when he smiles. That kind of detail makes a scene that much more sincere and heart warming, not to mention I don't see a lot of cartoonists bother with it. <3
