Chapter 3 Some Other Sunset 2 by Star-Seal Chapter 3 Some Other Sunset 2 by Star-Seal
:iconbutterflyplz:
THIS IS GROUND CONTROL TO MAJOR TOM!!!
Try Yarn Next Time is souped up WHY...?
If I'm losing the judge's approval due to one fact, this is it. I couldn't resist. This entire round has snowballed into a huge series of inside jokes between me and Phantom, and this might be the biggest. So, to clarify.
Many months ago Phantom and I rp'd Sending with her hands knotted up with twine. Junus, without a word, bent down and untangled them for her. He asked how this happened and she sheepishly admitted having attempted knitting. He told her to try yarn next time.
For some reason, Phantom and I blew this waaaaaay out of proportion and that's become the hottest pickup line ever.

Part two(UPDATED!!), in which

-Life's not fair
-Junus is baffled by a beanie baby
-Stoats are suckers for taciturn white people
-We see the intricate and complex speech patterns of silent plushes
-Sending did something stupid (where'd she get twine anyway?)
-Junus can't resist a child in need
-CHEWING YOU WRIST OFF IS FUNNY.
-Omg Star learned a new hair trick
-A horrific ink spill led to photoshoppery
-Junus is a friend to all butterflies
-Sligo is one of those scary-jealous father figures. And also had A.D.D.!!


Phantom told me she approved of my Junus style, and one of the reasons was I hadn't made him 'bishie.' Well, I didn't know what bishie was, but I think I might have just become it. While attempting to clean the threads of an ink bottle that was increasingly harder to close, i spilled huge bovine blotches all over my sexy!Junus panel. A divine photoshop intervention ensued. I was LOOKING for sparkles and then I saw the butterfly brush. I REGRET NOTHING! YOU HEAR ME, PHANTOM?!!? NOTHIIIING!

At least Sending isn't topless anymore.
ALSO, BEFORE THIS EVEN COMES UP.
Sending is NOT crushing on Junus. I'll explain why she's lookin like that soon enough, but it isn't young love. Swear to God. i can't take you pedos anywhere.
...No, seriously. Please don't leave me a %^&-ton of Sending pedophilia jokes. They do bother me.

Junus *phantomdeus (WHO TOTALLY DIDN'T COMMENT ON THIS PAGE DESPITE FAVING IT, THE GIT)
Happy happy clean photoshop lineart/oilspill cleanup specialist =Rianale (THANK YOOOOU ;-; )
This shindig in general ~Ganondorfthethird

Also note, this comic is about stoats, which are silent, hoopoes, which are quiet, Junus, who never says anything, Sending, who never says anything, and Sligo, who never shuts up.
Thank God for you, Sligo.

I can see... so many errors since the computer makes the pagers bigger than they are.
I do plan to fix them but only after submitting all the pages on time.

I LOVE the expressions, Star. Heheheh...Sending's just awesome.

...Knitting. Pffffffffffffffffffffff, so much fun...haven't ever tried, and I don't think I've got the knack for it either.

Actually, I think the 'use yarn' joke actually works pretty well! I wasn't aware of the insider reference, but still thought it was really funny... Especially how sadly pathetic and cute it was that Sending had somehow sabotaged herself while trying to knit.

If I've never mentioned before, I really like Sending's design - the red mask shape sets it off perfectly.

XD omg I didn't even realize you guys read these
*is all kinds of flattered*

Thanks! I'm glad you picked that up- pathetic and cute was exactly the sense I was going for in that idea. It's like the first time you get your hands on a Chinese finger trap. It's so ridiculous you're embarrassed to ask for help.
This also stems from my own, ahem, adventures in knitting, which, while not shackling myself, result in much anger, sobbing, and wasted yarn.

Again, thank you so much. Coming from you guys, who blow me away regularly with character designs, that means a lot.
In the very first take of Sending, her mask was a starburst of red, orange and yellow, but when I tried replicating it it just came out orange, so I started using red. I like it now, and it keeps me from making her blush, which she wouldn't be able to do, and which I have to fight not to do anyway because she's jailbait enough.

Thanks, Aileen. c:
I'm rather surprised, and I think I'm learning alot. I've never tried something on this scale before, lol. It's funny, because Sending has always been brightly colored to me, but the whole comic's so bright I'm not sure how seriously it will read.

I do believe this is my favorite first encounter between two characters in any comic I've read.
Also, Sligo is awesome as always.

I told phantom months ago
"All this meeting crap is overrated. If I were lucky enough to get Junus, the first panel would be Sending falling out of the sky, kicking Junus in the teeth, and the round would progress from there."
Unfortunatley, for the sake of plot I had to go back on my word.

The second take involved Sligo 'strangling' Sending over something and Junus, being the good guy he is, running in to seperate them... but it was sticky and awkward and the whole flow didn't feel right. Something reminded me of Try Yarn Next Time and so I ended up rewriting the first 24 pages or so, and I'm much happier with it.

But I am curious to see what people will think of him at the end of this round, should they reread this segment.

Teehee. Thanks, lovette.
Since I know Junus so well I think it's subconsciously coming out in the form of Sending being herself more.
Okay, so I painted his eyes to glow a little, but if you look REEEEEALLY CLOSELY, I actually used a SATURN-SHAPED EFFECT BRUSH and smooshed it around his retinas 8D

I agree. Chewing off your wrist IS funny.

Oh, I love it.
I wish I thought of that on my own.

But it's from this comic where a girl realizes she's holding this one boy's hand, and screams she needs a cootie tourniquet, and starts chewing her wrist off.
