    I saw these on your twitter when I went through it like a raving maniac the other week, but I must say I’m a bit lost in context. I guess internet voice actors are a thing now? Huh.

  6. It's Dantastic Says:

    First one made me laugh in that “why am I laughing at something sad” way that Dan excels at writing.

    Second one made me have feelings. I thought I told you to stop giving me feelings!

    That…. only confuses me further.

    Re: strip 1
    The pink-haired girl is the 2D avatar of the internet voice actress.

    The comic was prompted by this twitter post and reply:

    (She posted a picture of her 3D-self sitting in a box … but really, who wants the 3D version?)

  10. AoC Says:

    Remember when Dan used to do this sort of random comics for the imageboards?
    Yeah, me neither.

    Well, that was cute and lonely, just like I like them.

  11. Jo-ou Says:

    Well then.

    Now that that’s all cleared up, where mah Penny at?

    Someone’s been on YouTube…

  13. admin Says:

    The lonely girl at the end is the Pastel Heart voice actress… : /

  14. Mo Mocha Says:

    So the black-haired girl splits into the pink-haired girl and gray-haired girl, where the pink-haired one is like her magical internet persona, and the gray-haired one is her in the real world?

  15. maaya Says:

    Even in her loneliness- the voice actress must know that the phenomenon of Pastel Heart is now greater than herself- and will even watch over her sad heart-

    >_> That or the same concept cosplayers go through- your life might be terribly depressing, lonely, full of creepers- but the days that you get to be in costume u get to be part of a larger community of fans and have to be stronger so that when people do recognize you for what you’re cosplaying- you won’t let them down by being out of character =)

    I imagine voice acting is something similar- gives ya strength when you don’t quite have that much *_*;

  16. admin Says:

    You know, I never thought about cosplay that way.
    Are you a serious cosplayer, Maaya?

  17. maaya Says:

    I like to think of myself as a casual cosplayer- because I like to believe that it’s not about whether I made or bought the costume, but rather if I am actually having fun xD

    I make what I think what I think would be fun to be- Honestly I am drooling over all the reference art you’ve provided for Snax’s front back and side views- it’s a cosplayers joy to have easy access to concept art for reference! (… one day.. Snax One day.. when I am feeling confident enough in my sewing ability and have watched enough Star Trek, Hasselhoff, and read enough Xmen to feel like I can portray her properly- that and wear my retainer for an entire convention, since I’ve had my braces removed years ago… might have to commission a friend to make Mr. Mopps too ugh)

    I am personally intimidated by the larger cosplayer community that I think are more ‘serious’ than I am via giving attitude for fabric choice being something different than what the concept art depicts (i.e. someone knits a hoody instead of using silk as depicted in CGI representations of the character).

    Consistency- is not always a virtue in the world of concept art- it shows development if anything when one such as yourself posts concept art that goes through stages of changes till you hit the final representation of a character. I like the fact your concept art includes colour tests. Sometimes you will find people cosplaying the rejected concept arts- because they like them enough to make a costume based off of it.

    But I guess for the most part I’m pretty casual cuz I also gave up caring about shoes a long time ago- I mean… it’s difficult to secure the right shoes for a cosplay- people will in fact make sock like covers for their boots/shoes/heels to look like a character- but for the most part Snax’s boots will probably be the hardest thing for me to secure- should I- or someone else want to cosplay her.

    TLDR; When you upload a library of concept arts- if wanting to make easier for serious x casual cosplayers include detailed front x back x side views kthx <3

  19. Aristagon Says:

    Lol, i wish to See Dan drawing a Comic with you trying to cosplay clonemanga-charakters 🙂

  20. Aristagon Says:

    @ Dan:

    Is there ever Be the possibility to Read an annoted Version of PXI and NNN ? Like in the Annoted Sandman from gaiman. Some insight would a true wish.

  21. admin Says:

    No plans for an annotated version. The PXI reader’s guide was an authorial trespass to begin with and I shouldn’t have done it: readers have to be allowed their own space — at least, that’s how I see things at the moment.

  22. Aristagon Says:

    Well, thats true. But where is the Reeders Guide? In the printed Version? I am Not sure such a Thing spulend Be helpfull at NNN. There i nearly understood 10% and still feeling stupid while Rey to figure out Done narratives. But nö preasure ob that matter. Its only sometimes nice to understand something at all.

  23. maaya Says:

    *___* Daaaan regret nothinggg!! Temporal Umwelt- it was a good idea at the timeee so it’s okkkkk *o*

  24. admin Says:

    Thanks, Maaya. Well, let’s call it a lesson learned. : )

    Also, thanks for the detailed response on cosplay (That’s a pretty good “Why can’t I hold all these Cactaurs” pose going on there… ) and introducing me to the idea of Temporal Umwelt. : >

    Yeah, it’s in the printed edition. : /

  25. X Says:

    ah, that’s better. Thankyou Dan!

  26. Aristagon Says:

    I am more than happy to have finally got your graveyard!

  27. Aristagon Says:

    @ Dan:
    By the Way, thank you for answering on regular Base. Slowly the feeling rises, that clonemanga is revived. Are you planing to publish preliminary pages and images like with PXI in the old Board? I guess not but asking don’t hurt.

  28. admin Says:

    Probably not… I may end up publishing Tomoyo42 comics early on my twitter feed, though.

  29. iKo Says:

    In the same way the girl feels strong through peoples’ love of Pastel Heart, it’d be nice if you felt strong through people’s love of Clone-Manga.
    Y-y-y’know Dan?…. Fighto….?

  30. Jo-ou Says:

    Doesn’t work, iKo. I’ve tried. Dan only responds to hatred and cigarette burns.

  31. iKo Says:

    Ah, we have no choice then.
    We’ll need to stop with our recent praise and go back to hatemail.
