Posted by illwillpress - May 25th, 2009


After going through a ton of email, so far the general idea is that Germaine should be bald (or go back to her purple hair) No one's taking to the bleached look. So I guess that's squared away. So shaved it is! THE FANS HAVE SPOKEN! Surprisingly enough, most folks don't mind her being fat... a handful would rather have her rail thin... but anorexic Goths can be found everywhere in media. So why add to that. A few folks made a good point that the Ankh things were a bit gimmicky, and I kinda agree, so those will be ditched, and most folks like the somewhat tasteful covering up of the boobs... except the handful of people who wanted larger boobs...they're a bit bitter. I'm gonna take a few days break from working on her while I go through the rest of the emails. So I'll try to post a new pick in a few days. I've been racking my brain on this and it's good to get some feedback from folks. Seriously, sometimes I overthink things way too much and it's good to have someone just say "Leave things alone asshole! She's Fine!". ^_^

OK, after another long involved process and much debating, I decided to tone down the boobs, cover 'em up a bit, made her a little less fat than previous versions. Just kinda doughy, rather than morbidly obese, and revised the leggings to go higher. I'm trying to walk the line between making her fat, but not sexy, but also not repulsive. Just a normal chunky goth chic. Why is she bald? Personally, I like the bald version of her better I think. It gives her a really rough look, which is hard to get out of the refined Goth appearance. As time goes by Germaine is going to get more scrappy in her personality, and I don't think the Uber Goth hair style helps that. I still want to retain her rebellious attitude against the water-downed sub-cultures in our mainstream and I think the hair style would go against that. Like giving her hair would now be like selling out or something. I could just be way too damn picky in how I represent the character. Most people don't pay much attention to her anyway. Oh well...If you have an opinion on it. Shoot off an email. I WILL read it.

: Germaine Preview For Next Season UPDATE (AGAIN!) : : *twitch*


Posted by illwillpress - May 23rd, 2009


After being up all night working on character revisions, script revisions and going through the handful of email I've received already about the Germaine update... I worked on it a bit more and came up with what's below. Just made her skirt longer and tossed on some legging things so there's not so much skin showing. Still workin' on the boob thing. Not sure if they should just be reduced or left as is. Seein' as how she's suppouse to be fat, leaving her boobs large would be ideal, but I think they kinda stand out too much... Kinda like "HEY! BOOBS!"... All of this isn't going to matter much 'cause in the next season the Germaine character is going to be pushed into the background somewhat. Folks don't care much for her lamenting anymore and they'd rather hear foamy rant. So her part in the toon will be that of a conversationalist. Basically someone Foamy and the rest of the squirrels can bounce ideas off of... kinda like the old days before I got into pesky character development. The scripts I cut from next season will be turned into some sort of comic book thing when I get the chance. The bald version of Germaine will run through the comic strips for a little while as well, probably over-lapping the change.

Posted by illwillpress - May 23rd, 2009


Though nothing is set in stone, I was debating on updating Germaine's look, yet again. Below is most likely the look for next season. (Though I may continue with the bald thing for awhile. However! If I do the update, she will still remain a fat bastard.) The update wouldn't take place until the first episode of Season 7. Which would be episode 201, posted in September. I may fiddle with it for a bit and post some variations over the next few weeks. Also, some folks get hung up on boobs, so I think I'll be doing a mass reduction or something. At this point I just kinda see 'em as fatty chest bags, so it doesn't matter to me, but viewers tend to get a bit obsessive. At least the guys do. THEY'RE JUST BOOBS! (Am I just flogging a dead horse here... 'cause no one seems to be getting the futility of physical attraction moral to all this). I blame the education system.

Posted the new toon today! All about those nifty in-game ads that piss everyone off. Personally it really grates on my nerves... especially the auto update ads that refresh in game when you log onto Xbox.... pricks! Personally if "advertising is helping to pay for the game", it should be a lot cheaper.

Posted a new Foamy rant about styles & image. For those wondering about the whole Germaine appearance change, this rant pretty much explains all that. (See, there's method to the madness).
This one was posted like, 2 weeks late... 'cause I'm lazy, and didn't really want folks to miss it because of Pico Day. So the next new toon will be posted in a few days.

New Toon Posted!

This is actually an older toon that I didn't post on NG for some reason. Yeah, the animation's kinda sucky compared to what I'm doing now (which some folks still think is sucky). So it is what it is. An old Foamy toon.

Posted a new toon today with Pilz-E... and a muffin! Also for folks wondering when the next DVD will come out. I'm working on the last four episodes needed. After that, it'll be an encoding menu building process, and graphics. So hopefully I can get it done for September.

I've been going through all the emails I've been getting about Germaine's new look. The majority have been pretty positive. Of course it doesn't sit well with everyone, but you can't please everyone... so I'm not worried about that. The upside of the new change though, I cut down on 90% of the "I want to see Germaine naked" emails. Sweet! So that alone, makes this whole overhaul a success. All in all though, most people seem to get where I'm going with her character. She's the same person, just fatter... and with less hair... and not as sexy... and that weeds out a lot of boob-seeking fools. So that's cool. I'll be posting a new toon on Thursday or Friday.
