– Just a reminder, I’ll be at Sakuracon in Seattle in just about two weeks!
Why wouldn’t pirates play on a giant slide?
In panel two her hair is giving her the Doc Oc look. Is there no comic character she can’t impersonate?
Ah, the optimism of innocence. PREPARE TO BE CRUSHED.
Despite the playground actually looking like a prison exercise yard, complete with plodding convicts, the single, solitary element from Modest’s fantasy… the slide… is enough to keep that smile on her face.
She’s an eternal optimist! That’s a happy thing though.
I wish recess was like panel 1!
No kidding! Though I’d prefer cheesecake.
that is a DIRE school, criminy. What happened to all that ludcrous runaway school overfunding that i’ve always seen?
Hmm can Modest climb steps?
Portland school. Kids are probably inside because of the rain.
Im curious how she “walks” too. Does she use an upper part of the “snake like'” body and then slither up?
It’s honestly kind of a mystery. I’ve been working on a pitch for an animation company and it’s become apparent that I need to figure out how Modest actually moves.
That is completely awesome. Time to study some snakes brah. all I know is they use their scales to grip as they move. most cartoon snakes just sort of ooze along the ground while undulating
Maybe I’ll just have her roll everywhere.
funny you should say that http://stelly777.deviantart.com/art/He-ll-Find-Me-ANIMATED-sort-of-597282596
http://stelly777.deviantart.com/art/M-M-Walking-The-Halls-597283083 I’ve been dealing with a similar problem
Oh! Those both look pretty good though! Honestly, it’s hard for me to visualize. I kind of imagine her just bounding everywhere, but that doesn’t make much sense!
Ludicrous runaway school funding? Not in America, thats for sure.
Yeah, I was wondering where that was. The Portland School District has been broke since I was a kid.
Okay, my imagination _failed_ at picturing Modest at a slide, I just want to see it.
If she hadn’t already seen it in the yard how does she even know what a slide is?
She’s probably seen one on tv.
Yup, sad kids wishing it was their turn to play inside. Must be Oregon!
And OH SNAP! Those look like the pirates playing in her fantasy! (ﾉ◕ヮ◕)ﾉ*:･ﾟ✧
It looks cold and moist, just like the school yard of my elemetary school. It leaks the swings, teeter-totters, toys and garden though.
That school has no budget!
Woof…Looks more like the middle school congregation area of my youth but with a slide (middle school: where all joy goes to die). Effective use of greys, man…
On the other hand, our elementary school was sort of near the country, so the playground was pretty much: the woods plus swings and monkey bars. And it was awesome!
P.S. Don’t worry, kids, it gets better after middle school. 🙂
I just now noticed Modest’s Mario outfit. So awesome. Also the last panel makes me smile.
I meant to have her mention the outfit to Ekans. And that she had a hat as well, but lost it.
