Sketchy Theatre #17 - Strategically Timed

Sketchy Theatre #17 - Strategically Timed

Hey! You guys remember when I used to run a webcomic? That was radical.

So anyway! I made this page back when FF7: Remake came out. But I waited until JUST THIS VERY MOMENT, to strategically release it a year and a half later, when it is NO LONGER RELEVANT. Master plansmanship! You never saw it coming.

Anyway, I thought it was hilarious that Cloud just sat his ass on a bench and made NO ROOM for his teammates. And like, he'd take a breather right before big climactic encounters. Like the whole Shinra army is waiting for him on the rooftop, but he needs a minute. And like, that's not any more insane than taking a nap for a whole ass night while plot is happening! It's just a completely different level of insane. Same thing as getting full-ass armor out of a vending machine. Are you people crazy?

I've digressed.

The real reason this took so long is because if you'll notice??? Atari's name isn't up there on the art. That's Zie Fauzi. And he did a phenomenal job, don't get me wrong! But I had to change a lot of the sizing, paneling, positioning, and a lot of other stuff, and it really makes you appreciate when you've got an artist you work well with.

(Much love, Atari.)

As for why the MUCH LONGER THAN PLANNED lull-- um---- depression??? Only so many mental slots to allot to different things?? I've got like 17 things to keep track of or work on at any given point and I've got exactly 5 mental spell slots. And they're not even the good slots.


I'm going to try. I'm going to--!! Upgrade?? My materia slots??? And slot more things in them?? I don't know I've lost this metaphor.

Look. I've rewritten the ending of the Skuuba arc 3 times. And I still don't like it. So I'm probably just going to publish it. And we're going to have to live with whatever weirdness comes out of it.

If you can live with that, I can live with that.

Just kidding, I'm going to Star Wars this shit and release new definitive editions every 5 years!! With laser effects, and weird CGI fish people-- wait. We've already got that.

.... Hooray!!!

You'll always look back at your old work and scoff at how much of an amateur you were. Just look at the longer-lived webcomics out there that have kept their full achieve; roughs, pencils, and all.
All you can do is your best-at-the-moment and move forward.

Besides, this is a parody of old-ish JRPGs. If your scripts/writing are TOO good, it'll take away from the jank charm!

You're going to regret that. I finalized a page yesterday I wrote 4 months ago. There was a joke I didn't even understand anymore. And I'm LEAVING IT IN, ANYWAY! Mua ha ha ha haaa

heh, at least in Skyward Sword when Link sits on a chair it restores his hearts but doesn't make the whole day pass like when you lie in a bed.

"What about us?"
