kenisu3000 Chapter 1 - Page 31: A Gasp of Relief?

...My scanner is beginning to severely weird me out, what with how fitful it gets.
Anyway. what shall I say here? Let's start with the first panel - I like to call it the "SMAAAASH!!" panel (get it? Splash panel? Smash panel? Heh heh, heh... aww, never mind). I tried my best to recreate the "SMAAAASH!!" logo directly from the game, but holy crap, I never imagined it would be so difficuly, what with the way the angle curves back what with each progressive letter. I'm not so sure how well it works anyway, because I wanted at least two letter "A"s completely out in the open, and not blocked by Ninten's fat head. Instead I wound up with a couple of them half-hidden. Drat. Oh well, everything else turned out pretty much *exactly* how I had imagined it, and THAT, friends, is a good day! Except Ninten seems to resemble Charlie Brown here, what with the angle I chose for his nose - but MOTHER has a lot of Peanuts references anyway.
I also decided to establish Ninten's asthma here. Also, it looks like Minnie and Mimmie are still playing butt tag :) How long WAS that staircase anyway?!

I like the unintended effect I created in the background of the "Bad Enough Dude" panel. Ninten gloats, but very visibly behind him, the black cloud out the window has not yet departed. I didn't even catch the irony until I finished the panel.
Also, I was playing around with the idea of Ninten saying "Shoot... and I thought 'The Brave Little Toaster' was farfetched!" when looking at the destroyed lamp in disgust, but I already wanted the "Bad Enough Dude" line, and I figured working in two whole retro culture references one after the other would just be in bad taste, especially considering that I've already gone over the top with those culture references! There's a couple more I want to throw in before the end of the chapter though, so just... humor me.
And on a much relieved note, this is the last page to feature Ninten's room for a long time! All I can say is... THANK GOODNESS! I was getting so freaking sick of that stupid Garfield poster, and I'm sure everyone else was too.

Shading can be a beast on pages like this one.

I think I might have been hungry when I wrote that "appetizer" line of Ninten's. Speaking of food, the orange-and-tan coloring on the dollhouse on the very bottom of the page makes me hungry for a Peanut Cheese Bar. BOING!

I know plenty of households where the children are put in time out if they use naughty language like "shut up".
I looked at this after I finished it and I realized that Minnie's keeping her composure quite well through all this craziness. Whatever.
All I know is, I had been chomping at the bit to get out of Ninten's room, and now I'm already chomping at the bit to get out of Mimmie's Room! I hereby dub this room Purple Hell.
