S'been a while, eh?

I know this comes as a somewhat late surprise, but this will be the last DbF for a while. College, family, work - it's all quite time consuming. I've decided to put DbF in cryogenic stasis for the time being until I decide what I want to do with it (and more importantly, until I can give it the time it deserves). I would rather pump out strips in relative succession than drawing them out over time, and right now I can't do that.

So, does that mean you'll be seeing less of me? No. I'm still Nerfing, I'm still going strong. I'm still here, I'm still hanging around...you just won't see a DbF in a while. And for those of you caught in the ice floe that is winter Nerfing (in most areas, nonetheless)...hang in there, Spring is just around the corner.

But, yeah - the strip. Twelve frames, all hand drawn and retraced up for your viewing pleasure.

Hope you all enjoy.

I don't blame you, school can be tough. Although the ending was kind of quick, it was O.K. I hope you still stay nerfing for a while.

Hey dude. Yeah, school's tough man; juggling everything can be a real hassle, esp. with everything else life throws at you.

Anywho, I thought I'd give you what you requested at the end of your strip: feedback. As always, I think the strip rocked. I like the different drawing style, and just the concept of a "unified energy complex" is funny; to see it actually used made it even funnier, esp. with the psuedo-drama going on. I still love the strip before it though, "...it's already started..." So yeah.

Good luck with everything Groove, I'll see ya around.

P.S. - I will, in fact, one day, get a Tau 40K army going...

Sweet! I like the little monkey strapped onto the guitar. I was starting to wonder when the next DbF would come out. Once again, nice job with the Unified Energy Complex. B)

Very well done, good job. And I think we'd all prefer a sucession of quality strips rather than you straining to squeeze one out every 2 months. This was a very good one...More of a comic book style with the panels and certainly more action. The drama was funny in mocking itself, but cool at the same time. So nice job and good luck with the schoolwork!

I'm sorry you didn't appreciate it, Ash.

Thanks to everyone else for the kind words, and all your feedback. I'm glad you all dug the style and caught on to the mocking sense of drama. As cerealkiller, WEASEL and THIRST inadvertantly pointed out already, I am studying to become a professional artist at VCU School of the Arts here in Richmond. Looking to major in Illustration / Visual Studies (ironic, isn't it?). I'm also glad there's a general consensus on the whole consistency with the time overlay in between strips.

Some people have asked when I plan to pick up the reins again, and quite frankly, I don't know yet. I wish I could give you all a rough time table but I honestly have no idea. Since I go to an Art School, my work load is much different than most other people's. I am basically creating art twenty-four / seven. Well, I don't have classes on Fridays, so it's more like twenty-four / four + much time on the weekends. What happens is by the time I'm done with it all, I'm exhausted, and DbF gets pushed out of the picture. It's a vicious cycle.

But, anyhow ~ I appreciate your comments, and thanks for reading.

Sorry Groove, didn't mean to come off as such a cock...

I liked the strip overall, and I like the new art style. It looks way cooler. I felt it neccessary, however, to point out the line being pulled right out of an ATHF episode simply because of the context. If the show was a serious show and you used a line from it out of context for the purpose of humor, I wouldn't have said anything. Actually, I probably would have pointed out the reference and laughed. However, this show was already using the line for comedic value and in a very similair situation, so it seemed more like a rip-off than anything else. There, now that's cleared up.

Sorry again for sounding like a cock. Thank you very much for the strip and thank you for putting time into making us losers at the Nerf Forum chuckle. I appreciate it as I'm sure everyone else here does as well.

Apology accepted. I understand where you're coming from - I draw in lots of inspiration from various places, and that line just seemed to fit well when I was writing the dialogue. I don't expect people to always sit well with the different types of humor I throw out there, that's part of the challenge I think...

Thanks Julie, and everyone else for the comments.
