And even then, it only weighs less than 10 megs.
Of course, that doesn’t mean converting it into an Embeddable Flash file was easy.
It actually took quite some time (And changing computers a couple of times).
Anyways, once again I barely finished the whole thing on time, but I had troubles with fonts and such. And even then, I’m not entirely sure it’s not without issues. If you find anything that doesn’t work / is broken with this comic, please leave a comment so I can get around to fix it.
Anyways, I was the only one from this city who participated and didn’t sleep for the duration of the event.
Which proves that I either have undaunting stamina, or are certifiably insane.
Nevertheless it’s a win/win situation.
The hardest part is always around 3 or 4 AM, when you count the hours and realize that you’re way behind.
You literally go crazy, then. It’s around that time when I came up with the second half, which is decidedly more scattered than the first.
Of course, my initial plan was not to make another story featuring Juan and May (I did the first one in the 2008 24 hr comic day), but Lunamer.
I abandoned this idea the moment the clock started ticking.
It was around 5 or 6 AM that the idea of introducing Lunamer to the story, but an hour passed before The Game between May and Lunamer came to be.
Not even I know the nature of The Game, but it’s most definitely a game of wits.
Apparently, the rules change each round and you can never plan them in advance.
It’s a game of improvisation, much like Mornington Crescent, only instead of being verbal, it implies doing more physical stuff.
It’s impossible to know if these two are the only players of The Game. It might be entirely possible it is a multiplayer game!
Feel free to give it a go, if you dare try.
The ending of the comic is once again a product of late night madness.
Also, reaching panel 90 and needing 10 more panels.
Thus, it just came flowing.
The hardest part was using the spotty internet connection to download the “X, X Everywhere” template.
I blame Beto for the inspiration. Damn you, Beto! And thank you so damn much.
Finally, before starting the whole thing, I warmed up doing two panels of Lunamer, back when I was thinking of doing a story about her. In the end, they DID end up being used, but I won’t tell you how or where… Yet. 😉
Anyways, this year was the hardest. The change of format, having to work outdoors in the cold, covered in dust and sand, it was all extremely adverse to me.
My allergies are killing me. So, if you’ll excuse me, I’m gonna go watch some anime and forget about the whole experience.
I stand victorious for the third year in a row.
