Hey, folks. I just realized this Saturday is the first Saturday of the month. And you ain't gettin' no livestream!

'Cause seriously. I'm tired as fuck all the time now. Haha. This has been the roughest semester.

In other news... I'm out of news.

Oh, yeah! My final project for motion graphics is gonna be a two minute animation of Led by a Mad Man. In two minutes it's gonna start from the beginning all the way 'til they move into the farm house.

I wanted to do black and white photos for the BG, keep the sky the color it always is, the characters will be animated frame by frame.

Sigh. Better go look up a billion assets.

Need to make animatic... God. Motion graphics takes forever. Haha.


HEY. Some of you seem to have found my other secret comic here on SJ. Let's keep it a secret between us you know it's me, alright?

an animation! i'm super excited to see it

SECRET COMIC? i'm curious D: I wanna see it

please, someone, send me the link ;-;

EDIT: about the secret comic

1- it's effin' awesome
2- David's profile picture made me laugh for a long time, for no apparent reason

Oh man, I love the sort of shocking mood change from "Richard crying in Timothy's arms" to "happy family" again. It kind of makes the previous scene feel even more emotionally heavy. I am not finding the words I want to use to describe this...

And I was kind of wondering why there was a comic that didn't seem to be affiliated with you, but had the same drawing and writing style as you. I really like what you've done with it so far, though I haven't read through it all yet.


[Posted by ErrePi on April 4th, 2012, 5:09 pm]

@Ilmir: Haha, ok, good. Looks like you found it ok.

Haha. I always laugh when I see it. My friends and I looked up pictures of Vietnamese people that looked like the characters for fun.

Under that black shirt the guy's actually holding a baby, haha.

@mk_insane: Hm, I completely understand what you're saying but I'm also at a lost for word. Haha. But thank you.

Haha, man. My cover was blown so fast. Anyways. glad you enjoy it. And it's fine. There's a lot.

I'm totally baffled by how you manage to make so many comics... I went on the archive of your secret comic's super secret tumblr and its ridiculous how many comics are on there, I was stuck in a total rut though and its made me feel inspired so thanks! :)


[Posted by Ilmir on April 4th, 2012, 7:39 pm]

@ErrePi: now that photo just got 80% cooler


[Posted by ErrePi on April 5th, 2012, 8:44 am]

@raybeams: Haha, oh, thanks. I'm glad it helped! If you ever need a cheering section, I'm here!

I wrote comics in high school but I never really drew any of them out. I waited and it wasn't until the middle of college I drew Led by a Mad Man. Before that I had one comic that just completely angered me while drawing it, and I had drawn it for ten years before putting it online.

So now I've learned to wait on a comic for a while and the feeling has to be just right before I put it out 'cause when you have a project you get really excited about you want to draw it.

Every time I think of one I always worry it'll be my last but now I have two comics I'm always happy to draw. The two of them are taking up so much of my time that I haven't thought about another comic idea so it gives me time to focus on these two.

Haha. Yeah. I'm just really happy working on them.

Psh, I've known about your secret comic for forever. I'm a secret comic hipster. Also I'm excited for your animation!!


[Posted by ErrePi on April 5th, 2012, 9:17 pm]

@bocaj: You don't count for anything.

Well, fine. I'm excited about it too! Yeah! That's the only time I'll have a fun, shared experience with you.


[Posted by stupidarghs on April 8th, 2012, 6:16 am]

That was you fff
I feel so dense
I was forever wondering why the style was so similar than I blew it off by saying some weird shit like "maybe its a common style in vietnam" shoot me lD

..does that mean
It was all fiction?


[Posted by ErrePi on April 9th, 2012, 1:15 am]

@stupidarghs: Ah, I apologize for that. I didn't mean to embarrass or trick you, it was just for the sake of the story.

Haha. What weird shit were you saying? Again, I'm sorry!

No, no. I mentioned it in the news but it's about 90% my life?

So David and I are different in age, but we have the same major. We live in the same area. I don't have three other siblings, I have two younger than me. I'm a little like David but I'm probably about as angry as Connor, haha.

As for content, David's friends are all combinations of my friends, almost all the things that happened to David asexual-wise, things with school, work people, friends, almost all true.

His family is almost completely based on my family and all the drama that happens therein is definitely true.

Here's an example, the thing with Tien, the girl who didn't want to go to college, that's my story. Haha. I'm my grandpa's first born and he told me to go to college as he died and now here I am.

Again, sorry to do that to you. I hope you still enjoy the comic and feel free to ask me any questions.

You're doing an animation? That's cool, but you must be crazy lol. Don't forget to have some tea or coffee :O

(spend eight hours animating some hair over two days this past week, good lord...)


[Posted by ErrePi on April 9th, 2012, 5:44 pm]

@R.I.P: Why is it crazy? It's my major and I absolutely wouldn't have done it unless it was for a school assignment. I don't have that much free time, haha. I just thought making it LbaMM would keep me motivated.

Haha, well, that's why you have to adapt your style to work for animation. It's not too good to keep it complex, that is if you're doing traditional animation. If you use after effects you could probably keep the texture.

Of course this is all based on gesticulation. I have no idea what you're doing. Haha.


[Posted by stupidarghs on April 9th, 2012, 5:54 pm]

@ErrePi: haha I wanted to ask if it was another comic of yours, but the bio(him male and 34 and you female and younger than that) was so different that I didnt want to offend you by asking xD

it's still pretty interesting
seeing as it's still pretty much nonfiction ish

All the comics had such details that made it seem nonfiction like how david's father cooks in the vietnamese style, crouched on the floor.

Well I'll still be enjoying the story for sure :D

>3< ooo but it was quite fun believing that David was a real guy though; such a nice brother haha


[Posted by R.I.P on April 10th, 2012, 5:25 pm]

@ErrePi: Hahahaha, so very close! Good call. (My bro was working on a music video, and asked me to help animate some hair for him, because the team were running behind.)

The main character in it had really long hair. Which was a lot more difficult to work out how it might move than anyone first thought. (Though very much learnt from lol)

Oh, we were using flash but each frame was drawn out instead of using any of the short cuts. My bro's team were mental lol, and the guy putting it all together was using after effects :D

Yeah, I'm sure it will keep you motivated, which will hopefully make it easier. So good luck and hope you get good marks. (And am shamelessly hoping you'll put the animation up after you've finished and everything else.)

Edit: Good lord this reply ended up longer than I thought. Sorry.


[Posted by ErrePi on April 10th, 2012, 9:59 pm]

@stupidarghs: Haha, nah. It's not insulting. I made David the main character 'cause at 14 some 30+ year old man online wanted to befriend me because he thought I was also a middle aged man. Haha. He retracted it upon finding out my real age and gender.

I understand why he did but I would have liked to have been friends!

Ah, yeah. That comic was drawn after a visit to my dad after having not seen him in a month. I was also home sick for Vietnam at the time so seeing him like that made me... nostalgic.

David's parents and my parents are exactly the same, haha. Except for the stepdad, I hate my stepdad with a passion but David seems ok with his.

I'm glad to hear! That makes me very happy.

Haha, yeah. David's a good guy. He's my role model! Is it weird to make a character you made your role model?

@R.I.P: Sounds like fun! I actually hate animating but I like talking about it. Haha.

Haha. Of course I'll post it.Nah, it's cool. I enjoyed reading it.


[Posted by stupidarghs on April 11th, 2012, 12:18 am]

@ErrePi: haha ahh that would've been cool experience

Getting into adults heads, what do they think bout or are they secretly as childish as us
(Er well I dunno how old you are but older than me I think..so I guess yer an adult too?
Wait...14? Lolsoconfused)

Haha and no I dun think so
Cause characters can be very real sometimes haha like david xD


[Posted by ErrePi on April 11th, 2012, 8:47 am]

@stupidarghs: RIGHT?! It absolutely would've! Ah, well. Hey, redrabbitsomethingsomething! If you're still out there, let's be pals!

Haha. DUDE. How old do you think I am? I'm 22. I'm still in college. Granted, it's my last year.

Haha, thanks.


[Posted by MegaAnimeFreak7 on August 27th, 2012, 6:18 pm]

LOL When Richard came in Ian looked so happy to see him, like he was checking him over like, "Okay, he isn't limping so they didn't go that far yet. His lips aren't red so Timothy didn't hold him down and force himself on him, all's good, all's in good favor..." XDD


[Posted by GONE on September 19th, 2012, 11:07 am]

No!!!! I can't find it! What's the name of the comic...

Edit: FOUND IT *parties hard*
