Zita Explaining

- Posted in Work In Progress by

Zita, still soaking wet, is explaining to Ann what happened.

This undressed version of Zita is for frame 4 of Ann's Comix #2, page 2, still in progress. The work file is now available at the Special Folders for supporters.

The entire page in progress can be viewed and downloaded by 8k Platinum supporters at a size of 3840 x 6140 pixels.

Ann is shocked by what she sees and asks Zita to come inside, so the story begins (huarr, harr, harr).

And again I was forced to go back to an older version (a few weeks) of Inkscape. I'm currently working with one of the 1.4 versions, while they are also working on version 1.5. Nothing has changed, they are still trying (!) to get rid of more than 1,800 bugs, while adding more and more new gimmicks in the latest versions and a new version appears every day. The worst thing for me is that it happens quite often that they fix some bug and suddenly something that worked fine before doesn't work without it anymore, causing me a lot of trouble. It's a pain to work with this program, but currently there is no alternative. OpenOffice / LibreOffice Draw still can't handle gradients and layers and I'm not going to subscribe to any software, either buy it or leave it, so I'll have to stay with Inkscape.

Thank you very much for your support, take care of yourself and stay healthy!

Zita: Wet And Dirty

- Posted in Work In Progress by

As first the car had a flat, then a wheel stud broke, then it started to rain, but she could help herself. Now Zita is standing at Ann's door, wet and dirty...

Zita At The Door

- Posted in Work In Progress by

Zita is delivering a pizza. She looks a little different because she came out of the rain with wet hair, wet clothes, and a wet pizza box. Clothes and wet still need to be added.

This work file is now available at the Special Folders for supporters, in three sizes: 1080p, 2160p and 4320p.

When I start making a comix from the KP world, I collect samples from the original series to be as authentic as possible. But it's not as easy as it sounds. Have you ever noticed the Possibles' house, how the rooms differ from episode to episode? Like the front door, sometimes it's red, sometimes it's brown, it opens to the left or to the right, sometimes it's brown on the inside and red on the outside, only the picture frames to the right of the front door appear to be always the same. Or the living room, the big sofa often has a different shape, or the windows are different. The floor is always different, and so on. That annoys me. This is not a criticism of the show, it was a great show. It's just that these are small things that could have been avoided. The scandal lies more with the management, putting such nonsense in place that a show can only have a limited number of episodes, only to break that "rule" later (Phineas and Ferb is currently in Season 5 production). If I had the majority of the shares, I would fire the management. Completely. The reason: prevention of triple-digit million profits through inability.

By the way, I'm not talking about incompetence. Incompetence means not being responsible, but since a management is always responsible for making as much profit as possible, it is called inability!

Just in: A great new masterpiece by PhillipThe2. Thanks, Phil, great job!

Ann goes to the front door, she put on her negligee. (The negligee is still a work in progress, as is the background image)
