Chapter 1 - Page 58: Of Oreos and Hocus-Pocus




kenisu - #58
I've always felt the livingroom was awfully... stark. I designed it similar to what's seen in the game, knowing full well how bland and... I dunno, threadbare(?) it looked, but I wanted to keep it that way, just for a laughable throwback to the simple 8-bit design of the game. But dang, after drawing and coloring all these pages, it seems to me that I should have at least succumbed to wallpaper, windows and a light fixture! What kind of psycho house -doesn't- have windows around its front door? And without those windows or an immediate light source aside from the kitchen window, how could it be so bright indoors? That's the price of adhering 100% to the game's design for the house's exterior first, THEN putting together the interior. You look at the inner layout and realize it doesn't conform to the outer structure at all. In the game, the front door, as seen from the the livingroom, is brown and square at the top, with no built-in window, but outside, it's gray with a rounded top and window, AND the doorknob's on the wrong side! So I changed it to fit the outside appearance. At least that's one claim to consistency I can make.

I need a life.

Just a little divider to separate the two "features".

And here it is: the whole reason I had the idea for this comic in the first place. That image of the severed horse's head at the foot of that one playboy's bed in The Godfather still haunts me, so I decided to make something funny out of it. Originally I was going to put this together with MOTHER 2 characters, with Ness getting the stickhorse and the other Chosen Three getting fed up with his childish ways and taking the hatchet to his precious new toy; but I realized that it would be a liiiittle out-of-character for Ness (I dunno, maybe he'd be Mushroomized?), so I went with Lucas and Claus instead.

When I drew the horsey-pole (and it wasn't until after I drew this whole thing that I remembered that they're called stickhorses) in panel 3, I realized it looked a whole lot like a shot from a certain semi-annoying YouTube video that I adore, so I threw in that completely unrelated line "We're on a BRIDGE, Charlie!" Hooray for stupid inside jokes in webcomics that only web-savvy people get.

So here's the "cartoon short" preceding the main feature of my Holiday Funfest comic... I actually had the idea to do this for a Holiday Funfest since last year, but then for 2007 I also wanted to do the Anna story. I didn't want to discard either idea, so I threw this in as a little side "bonus". The whole "turn it into a 'Night Before Christmas' poem parody" idea actually came just before I started working on it.

I just love the sound effect "GOINK!" Nothing, nothing, *nothing* in this world goes "GOINK!", and that makes it so awesome.
