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.

Camel's back = BROKEN.
Looking over my original of this page from two/three years ago, I noticed something I had forgotten about. A faint erasure can be seen in the sky, in the panel where Marilyn is on the ground (you probably can't see it here, since this is photocopy, and a colored one at that). It's a speech balloon of Marilyn going "AcK... gAHhh..." and it's accompanied by the sound effect "twitch twitch". All I can say is: *wow*, I'm really glad I recognized the mood killer there when I did.

There's something about that river, and the trees beyond it, that make me wish I could live there.

This was a pretty tricky business, trying to come up with lines that, to my ears, didn’t sound corny and overused, and at the same time making sure the gestures didn’t climb into “Milking the Giant Cow” territory. I’m still not even sure if this succeeded.
That’s a carnation on the Mothersday welcome sign, by the way.

Not much to say here, except yep, this is Mothersday. I think for my next establishing shot, I’ll try a two-page spread. :)

Heh, Lloyd’s head even kinda looks like a butt in that last panel there.

Ahem.
