It’s very easy to become delusional as to what is going on, especially when you like some one a lot.
Poo hair is so romantic.
That’s how I personally swoon women, anyway. :]
Whatever works, man. =D
The dark side of love is oddly cute. Also, I would like to throw my hat in and vote for all characters in one wallpaper (but in costume).
Got any costume Ideas?
Well, Joseph should be a dinosaur in a trench-coat (creepasaurus), Rudy could have a sink as a hat with a pipe leading to his mouth (garbage disposal), Cadence could be Ironman (she does have a laser), Corbin could be Einstein (in honor of him being a professor), and poor forgotten Hammer can be a bottle of pepto (he does have excellent control of his bowels). An alternative for Rudy is King Henry III another big eater.
OOhhh nice, I dig the King Henry the Third idea! lol I’m starting to get so many cool ideas I feel like (if i have time) I’m gonna have to do two wall papers!
It is hard for me to make a good suggestion for Cadence’s costume since every thing that comes to mind sounds like I am trying to get you to fulfill some kind of personal fetish of mine.
Nah, don’t sweat it sir. Pretty much all the ideas I’ve come up with so far follow that same line of reasoning. For example: Faye Valentine from Cowboy Bebop. :3
I blame the entire costume industry. Think about it, when was the last time you saw a costume that is mass produced for a female that is past puberty or per-geriatric that doesn’t have some sort of sexual innuendo involved. And with the moral ranting over, is there any chance for a nurse outfit? :3
Haha, so you have a nurse fetish!? I KNEW IT! … actually.. no, I didn’t. But I’ll mark it on the list of things I might do. When you said nurse I actually though of one of the pokemon nurses, Nurse Joy, I believe her name was: http://images.absoluteanime.com/pokemon/joy.jpg
Can’t blame you, but when it comes to Pokemon, Misty will always be my first love.
Why do I get the feeling that Joseph will be in some sort of pain in the next strip?
Because love is just NOT this cute in real life? lol
how much pain did it cause you to draw this?
My eyes bled a little bit, also I think I suffered at least three brain aneurysms. ><
Well you did better then i would have.
Wouldn’t have survived the duration of the artwork, then? MERE MORTAL!J/K Rowling, I kid. I kid.
Sadly, ’tis true, I am naught but a mere human mortal. But if I can find enough rubber bands, I can fix that.
For some reason.. this hurts my head… :[
not in a bad way though
Lol, care to explain how?Trust me.. it hurt my head to draw. I had to research chibi art for a while before I started it.. and by the time i was done, my eyes were bleeding and i was ready to stab them with my pen.
Well, I am still new fan of your artwork, and I’ve never followed ‘all’ of your stuff entirely :/. I found out about L.a.w.l.s through Google :S. It was entire luck, I think it was a back-link ad or something. So excuse me if I’m not familiar with all of your drawing styles yet XD! I’ve already checked your Gallery, but if you have other accounts, like DeviantArt or Drunkduck, lemme know.Besides, you could have obviously fooled me, I thought you were already some kind of professional Chibi-artist just by looking at this strip :3.
P.S: Are your eyes really bleeding o.O!?
You found me via google? That’s amazing. I was under the impression that my good advertising, overall was a flop. I’m glad to hear that though! :DI do have a deviant art as well, actually. My Deviant Art I don’t update it as much as I’d like too though :/ I just get so busy from this comic sometimes.
I hope my last comment didn’t come off too strong or anything, I just meant it more as “Why did this strip hurt your head? (my curiosities got the best of me)”. :]
Thanks for the compliment, I’m glad it came across as “pro,” tells me i didn’t waste three hours of my life the other day doing research! lol And no, my eyes weren’t actually bleeding. I just couldn’t believe how freakin’ bright and happy all the chibi stuff was! I mean, wow, color overload! XD
This is so cute it makes me sick!
Me too… ::vomits::
OMG IT’S THE CUTEST LITTLE CHIBIS I EVER DID SEE! 100% honest.Slightly dreading the reality part on Wednesday, if you don’t die from those brain aneurysms.
Aw, thanks! I’ve never really drawn chibi art before. Maybe one or two times.. but nothing serious, so this was actually really challenging for me to accomplish. I’m happy with it though, especially Cadence. She looks awesome. :DIf I make it to Wednesday (w/ no aneurysms) then I think it should be a pretty decent strip… i just retyped the next part to this sentence like 4 times… i can’t say anything else with out potentially giving away the strip! lol SO, I’m just gonna cross my fingers!
For some bizarre reason this reminds me of the “Korean Animator’s Ending” to that one episode of the ‘Clerks’ animated series.I’m surprised it’s not all sparkly like most adolescent romantic fantasies!
Drats, I wish I got your reference, I just put the animated Clerks DVD on my Netflix queue last week! oh wells…I hate sparkles. I definitely wasn’t gonna “twilight-gay” up my art with sparkles. I’ve gotta have SOME SORT OF DIGNITY! …right?
No one NEEDS diginty, look at Goerge Lucas, i saw a Jedi telescope on sale at Toys-R-Us, yes, i may remind you that they have. the ability to see into the future and across the galaxy.
Are they even kissing? or just touching noses? what are they…? who…? GAH!*head explodes from chibi overload*
LMAO! You know, I’ve actually wondered that myself. I’ve never fully understood chibi characters, it’s hard to make out what is going on with them sometimes. I actually had no clue how to really draw chibi characters so i googled thosands of them, and i very nearly ripped my eyes out trying to figure out the appeal of them! Why do so many animes/manga’s have chibi artwork? WHY DO THEY EXIST!?! WHHHHYYYY!?!?!?!::kawaii vomit time!::
i think it chibi exist to express the climax of funniess and cuteness only manga cant express..btw, didnt youtube have any tutorial to draw chibi? i bet it would be easier than googling chibi…
I don’t do as good with “how to tutorials,” as I should. I end up getting bored and fast forward… then i miss stuff, then i get annoyed. I just stick to analyzing the way i THINK other people do it… then just give it a try. Cos then the art maintains my own personality…where as if I followed a how to exactly, it would look too much like “it should.” If that makes sense.
im glad you dont do good with the “how to tutorials” (not being a dick)i just think if you would have done it like the “how to” wouldnt have had very much creativity, then it might have looked like some re-packaged “crap” which your comic is not in anyway like that, you actually have alot of originality and your personality does show through your characters a little bit
long statement short all is as “it should” be, you give your own spin on everything
oh and the chibi kissing, well in the genre, its more or less targeted at a younger audience, and the closest the will get to a kiss is an eskimo kiss (with noses touching) kind of how it was for tv in the 50′s-60′s, that its considered taboo for an actual kiss to be shown, like seperate beds for married couples, its bad to insinuate that the characters might actually have physical intimacy of any kind
Exactly! I don’t want my work to look pre-packaged at all.When i first started, I did how ever reader over some tutorials on how to effectively use photoshop for comics; Like Jeph Jacques of Questionable Content and Jenny Romanchuk of The Zombie Hunters both have great ones somewhere on the internets. I was shaking on layer usage and shading/coloring techniques. But now I have many friends in the industry, like Scott of Nerf This, for example who I talk shop with at great extent, so as we both learn new tricks we share them with one another. Being and artist is all about growth, networking, and individuality. The best way to do that is to use multiple resources and just incorporate everything you like (personally) into one project, your own unique contribution to the art world. :] I always hope that I’m successfully doing so as I grow in my work.
Your point on the chibi thing makes sense. Besides, there are other, more deviously ambiguous ways to insinuate sex through art. MWHAHAHA :3
you mean ambiguous like the original VHS box covers for Disneys movies, got a few of those, somewhere, chuckle everytime i see one:P
Exactly! And don’t forget all the subtle gay jokes in Ren in Stimpy! God… The subliminal messages littered in the media of the 80-90s childrens entertainment. They just don’t fuck up kids they way they used to.
There’s nothing “subliminal” about Ren & Stimpy: Adult Party Cartoon.Watch those at your own caution!
Is that by chance the “Adult” Remake that came out years after our childhood corruption already existed? COS if that’s the case, I watched those. The blatantness of it was boring. :/
haha its soooooo cute!! also, I totally like how its cadence’s print’s background when they kiss. does that mean she’s the dominant one?And I second the idea to have all the characters on it. As for costumes…. Rudy as the Energizer Bunny/Reeder, Joseph as Scout Crossing? haha, Cadence as Gadget haha I dunno, maybe the fish as the Dr. Seuss fish or the fish from American Dad, and maybe Corbin assss the Nevermore crow. haha I dunno just first ideas that came to mind
I don’t follow what you mean by the “dominate one”I love the idea of Rudy being the energize bunny thought! That’s and awesome idea! I’m gonna have to say THAT is most likely gonna happen. The others though… I’ll think them thru a bit, idk how who get the scout one, and who’s Gadget?
Glad I already finished my coffee when I came upon this sight! XD(My keyboard only just having recovered from me spilling tea on it the other day)
Really really.:D…I’m deeply ashamed ofcourse…
Wasn’t as bad though as the time when I spilled lemonade all over someone else their wacom tablet. DON’T EVER DO THAT! o_o/
DO IT AGAIN!!no, better, DO IT BIGGER!!
OH GOD, If someone spilled lemon-aid on my tablet.. id stable them in the throat with my stylus. ><
You can stable (is that even a verb?) with a stylus? Your powers are vast and mysterious indeed!But it’s a good thing that I don’t know where your tablet lives! Now nothing can possibly go wrong
LMAO! I meant to say “I’d STAB” haha, oh wells at least i’ve invented a new verb?
Yes! because now you…eh…can turn a hypothetical throat into a haven for well-taken-care-of-horseswith you styluseh what? :S
LMAO! Cheers to that comment!
Please let this be cannon! Please!!On a side note, I noticed all the comments about how this style is ‘painful’ to look at and ‘painful’ to draw even, but it’d probably increase your audience numbers tremendously if you market it to the animu crowd, but at the cost of you current readership maybe LOL…
Cannon?Lol, Well I actually love animes/mangas so there will always be an underlying influence, I just don’t want to completely mimic the artwork and “loose myself” in someone else’s style. If that makes sense? THOUGH, i do agree with you, I’ve gotten a very very good reaction out of the last two strips.. So I will keep that in mind as I draw future strips. :] Thank you for your input though, it’s appreciated. :]
Sorry if I sounded all serious…. I prefer your personal style actually. Just pointing out jokingly that ‘chibi’ and ‘animu’ are so recognizable you’d be pandering to the lowest common denominator (hence larger fanbase) but the more serious fans might get all frowny lol. :/
nah, you didn’t sound “all serious,” I like the feed back, I’m definately going to take more “cues,” from what is popular in the modern anime, now that I know people seem to like it here.
animes? did you watched code geass? :+D
didnt you said emoticon was :+D?
well i said + so you’d know to put : and D together…. if I put them together to show you it would make this so i couldn’t just do that.. or you wouldn’t see the two characters. Get it now?
There ya go!
Never heard of that one. :/
it is an awsome anime that starts with a student joining the japanese terrorists… it sort of breakes the line btween good and evil…. u will understand that if you watch iti got a link for a site with all episode on stream videos dubbed in english, or if you like i could post one torrent link for the complete series in japanese with subtitles, or both, or none.*warning, it is awsome*
I’ll check if it’s on Netflix and Hulu. I’m sure one of them has got to have it.
With the whole costume thing I’m thinking something along the lines of A Clockwork Orange would look megasuperawesome
OOOHHH, that sounds awesome. I totally dig a clockwork orange costume! Thank you much! You’ve given me an AWESOME idea.
Joseph should be some sort of horribly mutilated being, like a zombie, “Frankenstein’s monster,” or mutated sewer dweller.Don’t have any worthwhile ideas on anyone else though.
LOL, i like that. Man, Now I’m starting to develop “too many” ideas as too what my characters should be! Thanks for your input, I appreciate it. Also, thanks for the comment in general. I love hearing from readers. ^_~
aaawwwwww, anime chibis, so cutecute overload, error error *twitch, sparks from ears*
seriously though i do enjoy this one, made me smile, i do quite enjoy it when you change up your style every now and then, just shows how broad your talents are, i am a huge anime, manga fan, my shonen jump issues can not come soon enough each month
love the “logo” shirt, thats the old “insert joke here” make me laugh everytime i see something like that
Yay! Glad someone commented on the “logo” shirt! I try to hide things in L.A.W.L.S. all the time, so it excites me when a reader actually points them out. A few things have actually slipped by with out mention, I’m curious if future readers (as the comic becomes more popular) will notice them or not. After you saying “Insert Joke Here” i almost wish i wrote “Logo Here” or even better “Advertise Here” lolThanks for the compliments.
On my planet, chibis are a delicacy.
i felt like i had to comment, but i dont know the word delicacy.tried google translating it to portuguese to learn about it.google failed. it simply doesnt translate, it shows nothing where should be a translation.
It means “something pleasing to eat that is considered rare or luxurious” basically, you need to be rich to afford to even try it.
*puts on monocle and false moustache* i wish i was rich on thy planet, dear internetly friend
“Internetly friend,” that was full of the made-up-nonsense, i enjoy my friend. That made me laugh.
made-up-nonsense… i didnt knew there was a joke category to most jokes i do around friends*rainbow* Learning is growing *rainbow*(still, it doesnt make it any less painfull to learn)(growing? like when grows a bulge in my pants?)(bulge? was that the right word? i think i remember somewhere refering to that part as a bulge)
I was slightly expecting for this moment to be broken again whenever the page was loading
(the little kiss kiss moment that is.)
As in it wasn’t supposed to happen?
I misread “she swoons” as “the swoons,” as in “I believe I have just come down with a case of ‘the swoons.’ *swoon*” Now I will be using that in everyday conversation. Thank you for helping me misread something into my vocabulary!Also I am loving the Chibis even if they caused you physical pain. You bore it for the greater good!
LMAO! That’s awesome! I’m glad I could aid you in creating new phrases for your vocabulary. It’s not the first time I’ve done so, apparently. In a comment just above this one a bit I came up with “stabling” on accident. I TRIED to say, I’d STAB them.. but I accidentally said “stable them” lol oh how fun it is to make shit up (on accidently)Thanks, the physical pain I keep joking they caused me, was more of me just being really tired from staying up late, than anything. I actually rather enjoyed trying something new… but man did it kill my nights sleep just to figure out how to “properly” do it!
Thanks for the comment, glad to hear from ya!
i dont get the she swoons part, nor “the swoons” part.i tried googletranslator, but it somewhy didnt helped.
(does the word somewhy exist?)
To Swoon, is to be overwhelmed by ecstatic joy. Personally i think of it as, swooning for a girl or boy, like being around them makes you SUPER HAPPY!
Urban Dictionary material?He said: “I’m gonna stable your arse so hard, you wish you’d’ve come down with the swoons!”
haha, I wonder if people one Urban Dick would give that points or not? They’d probably hate on it for how random it is. ><
Who cares what those swoon infested idiots think, do you lose any stabling over it at night?
Ok I stop now ><
lol…idk, the internet is a SCARY place… who knows what Urban Dick’s will do.
I must say that this pretty much made my day :)I wish life was like this though. It’d be quite festive.
I’m glad to hear I was able to make your day! If life was like THIS.. there would be no wars… we’d all be to cheery to think bad thoughts!Btw, thanks for commenting, I love to hear from new readers. THAT always makes my day.
I have been reading for awhile, but I finally decided to step up and comment because receiving a comment back from someone as talented as you is quite exciting
Aw shucks, that’s too flattering. Well, either way, thanks for commenting and even more so for reading! I appreciate it. Keep it realz yo!
dammit! joeseph beat me to it!!!1
