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.

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.

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

Let it be known that I hate drawing extras.

On the flip side, coming up with banters between characters is tons of fun.

Yeah... about this mysterious Jeanine character Lloyd mentions... well, you'll see who she is (and *possibly* recognize her) if I ever get that far in my main fancomic. For now, I'll just say I designed her after one of the NPCs.
