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 PROMISE the battle FINALLY begins on the next page. As for the title, inspiration came from the Calvin and Hobbes collection "Scientific Progress Goes BOINK!" I had another title I wanted to use, but decided against it. What was the other title, you ask? "Feed the Childrens." Na na, na na na, hey hey, doot doot doot!

You've always wondered what the flippant MOTHER battles would look like if translated to visual format... and here you go.

It's a sound-effect extravaganza! Except I think I should've gone with "WHUMP!" instead of "BOOF!" when Ninten catches Mimmie. Oh well.

I guess there's such a thing as too much detail... these panels can be terribly distracting from what I
wanted in the central focus: Ninten jumping onto the mini-table to avoid the bed; the bed turning around
for another swoop; Ninten deciding to jump onto the bed; and the springs in the mattress bouncing him all
the way to the dresser and the doll. How very cartoony.
But anyway, WHOO! Back to college, and back to the good scanners!
