I'm 100% happy with frame 5.

Ok, its nearly impossible to see, but there are 5 necklaces around Andrea's neck. They go from waxing (left) to waning (right) with full in the middle. I put a surprising amount of time into drawing them. Too bad you cant see the detail that is in the originals. As Enzo Matrix would say - pixilicious!

Btw, the normal lead singer? He has the same voice as the lead singer from Napalm Death. Go listen to 'Twist the Knife' and you will get an idea.
And an idea of exactly how easy it would be to blow out your voicebox.
I like how he does his demi-goth, the purposefully runny makeup is totally a look! And he has the old Deathtapus shirt, with the beak, not the teeth. Hardcore!
(Deathtapus can be spelled Dethtapus or Deathtapus, both are correct. And the logo can have either a beak or teeth. The arms can be in any config, so long as there are 8 and they look like Metallica lightning bolts. Holy crud, Metallica is in smackjeeves spellcheck, and yet Smackjeeves isnt.)

Kickstarter I saw today about an indie TV show. Main character is a trans*chick. I'd love to see it be made!
If you have a few extra bucks and want to contribute to something (hopefully) great;

This taken from the weblink provided---

" Magdalena Burnham is a writer and comedy person from Missoula, Montana trying to make it in the big city! She studied TV writing at NYU's Tisch School of the Arts and is currently writing promos for Comedy Central while performing stand up and hosting the podcast Secret Lover. "

Is Magdalena Burnham a transgender person themselves ? If yes, then I would be interested in what they are doing. If no, then are they just cashing in on the interest of having a transgender character(s) in their production, with little or no regard to transgender issues themselves, and how can I be sure that they " get it right " if a cis-person(s) are running the whole show ?

I'm always suspect of a cis-person, who in not a proven ally, that purports, by means of a movie or production number, to talk about and explain what it is like to live the life of a transgender person. If Magdalena Burnham was actually active in the transgender community as a real ally, one would think that their accomplishments in the transgender field would be in their synopsis, not just their drama, comedy, and production accomplishments.

@CuteDress&TwinPonytails: From the video, she said she is LGBT in some way, without saying which way specifically.

Takako Shimura, author of Aoi Hana and Horo Musuko, is not notably lesbian or transexual. And yet her work is widely regarded as some of the best TG/lesbian drama to come out of Japan.
I would say to let the work speak for itself rather than immediately jump on it for the potential of claiming us for popularity. Of course, we dont HAVE the kickstarter work yet, but I would like to see how it goes before judging it.

@Elessir: When I get off my lazy butt and actually make them. I would going to go to a Comicon in Sept, but that got preempted, so now I don't have an outlet.
