2003 - A legend is reborn - which is kinda creepy
No, your brain didn't suddenly become under influence
of any hard drugs or alcohol bloodlevels that just
shouldn't be! Everybody's favourite low life internet
comic is back in business. MediumRare is
back! After about 6 months of inexcusable absence Mike
and Eric (+ the obligatory "gang") are back
for more! What, I'm not quite sure of. Maybe ink.
Welcome back to my old regulars and welcome to any new
readers that might visit. I suggest that you start
from the start despite the unchallenged suck-dacity
As you can see a few things have changed. I pulled a
Kurtz and horizontalized the comic. I like it a lot better
this way. The only reason I didn't do it before is that
both Real Life
and PvP used the
"two frames over each other" formula - I just
interpreted it as a formula for success!
I've also tweaked the drawingstyle and look of the characters.
My skills with a pen have evolved (or so I like to think)
and it's only natural for the comic to follow those changes.
It may not look like much has happened but I'm pretty
damn happy with it. More importantly though, is that I
now draw 100% free hand. In my insatiable quest of ripping
people off back when I started MediumRare, I adopted
Scott Kurtz' technique with having a sheet with character
outlines that I traced so they'd look the same each comic.
That is gone. It may have an awkward effect on the first
few comics but it has really rejuvinated my love for writing
and drawing comics.
Oh, and I have a new design. You
like? Responses I've had range from "It's perfect!"
to "It's... er... pretty big, huh?" so I guess
it's populistic value is hit and miss. I like it myself
but, as with most things, that's probably attributed to
the fact that I made it myself. No, not the soap. The
I hope you enjoy what I like to call MediumRare:
Season 2. Come back Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays
for new comics. See you in two days for a new comic and
more me talking about random stuff.
