427 – Puppeteer
Today’s rather silly adventure was originally even sillier! But after brainstorming a bit with Chris, it did bug me that the moon in the game didn’t end up looking like that, so I worried that would affect the enjoyment of the strip. So we hashed it out and the solution ended up being fairly simple–just have Skull Kid be the odd one, and have the humor arise from his tension with Majora’s Mask. The result is a character pairing that I rather like, although it was pretty difficult to clearly distinguish the two personalities for the viewers’ sake.
On a side note, the monochromatic shading of this strip took forever. I think actually doing it in full color would’ve taken less time!
