Chapter 1 - Page 62: Words From the Past




kenisu - #62
One of the most annoying things about trying to make a fleshed-out story of MOTHER: most of the characters don't have a last name. So I have to dance all around these nonexistent names in places where, by all means in real life, the full name would be used. In this case, the title page of George's diary. I wanted the diary to be faded and blotched to begin with (to give it that "antique" look), so I used that to my advantage and ran my thumb over a smudge of graphite, covering the area where George's surname would be. I love these little nuance conveniences.
As for the password, it was only recently, when I went to draw over the sketch, that I finally realized the connection between the two parts of the code: _Where is God's Tail?_ is the prompt, and _Lost on the ship that sails the heavens_ is the answer. The second part isn't clarifying _what_ God's Tail is (my old translations read "The item left behind" instead of "Lost"), it's clarifying _where_ the Tail is.
...Though I still wonder what I was thinking when I chose _lost_ as a "translation" of _wasuremono_. In that case, _left behind_ would still have worked.

I can't _possibly_ be the first one to come up with this joke.

kenisu3000 MOTHER Christmas Theatre: Page 9 (How Anna Saved Christmas)
I had known for the longest time that at some point, I wanted to make an Anna-centric Holifay Funfest comic, and just to be funny, give it the stupid title of "How Anna Saved Christmas". I just had never known what I wanted it to be about until the time came for the 2007 holidays.

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

kenisu3000 Pork Trooper: You Know You Want His Body
I've discovered something interesting about myself. I get my best humorous inspiration when it's late at night (read: early in the morning) and I'm sleep-deprived. Maybe I ought to try that from now on whenever I need to think of a good punchline for my comics.
