So what's with your apprehension at different body types for women? George and Rich would look something different in faithful transformations into girls.

Increased contrast between before and after, and the fact that it’s Tedd’s imagination in which she is imagining Rich becoming both female and closer in size (possibly smaller) to herself.

Generally speaking, I prefer higher contrast changes unless the intent is to keep the character visually recognizable as themselves. In this case, I wanted them to look completely different and only recognizable through color palette and now-oversized shirt (also add “oversized shirt” to the list of reasons).

It’s possible to maintain a high contrast change and keep a somewhat similar figure, but in this case, Rich is considerably larger than Tedd, and Tedd’s fantasy included changing that.

In general, however, my own preference for contrast does mean that it’s likely for me to draw a change where a person becomes bigger or smaller in some way, and this can include weight in either direction. It can also include muscle mass, also in either direction (though I don’t think I’ve shown a sudden decrease in muscle yet? Maybe somewhere?).

I actually am conscious of the fact that I should add some heavier female characters, however. For one, heavier people are fun to draw (sorry if this offends somehow, but it’s simple FACT), and while I have several heavy characters, they’re all dudes except for a select few very minor characters and extras. It’s sort of a Homer and Marge scenario that I feel should do something about.

…Okay, that was supposed to imply holding on the “oh” sound, but anyone read that as “rebloog”?

I just realized the change blindness comic was posted on my birthday. I'm not sure how to feel about that.

Depends on whether you liked the comic.

Out of curiosity, do you get alot of comments about Grace's bust size not being/going big enough? I figure with how much she can change something like that is bound to happen.

danshive:

Actually, no. Given the subject matter, responses have been quite tasteful.

Sorry, I must have missed it, Why do you reblog everything twice again? (Not on egscomics, on here)

danshive:

The midday reminder is because many readers aren’t even still awake when the new comic is first posted, and the post is likely to get buried in their dashboards.

Basically, the midday reblog is for people who were asleep when the comic was first posted.
