Because every day I look at my fat, grumpy self in the mirror and say “grumpiness is the way of my people.”
Also, George and Tensaided are awesome, and I clearly need to make Susan heavier so she’ll fit in at the grumpy meetings.
The NP comics showed her at angles deliberately meant to accentuate their size for emphasis without making them bigger than they are. In the sketchbook, Susan is turned slightly with her legs bent in a way that doesn’t accentuate them. In addition, her arms and posture are such that her upper body look bigger, reducing contrast with her lower body.
One might argue I should have gone with a different pose to accentuate them better, given that it’s one of the differences between normal and short Susan, but I really liked this pose. It made sense for the sketchbook to just be Susan at the pool doing something someone at a pool who is there for themselves and not to be eye candy would do.
Speaking of which, it really isn’t that odd that Susan would wear a bikini. The primary reason she wouldn’t would be because men might stare, but the thought of that causing her to not wear what she wants to wear would rebound and want to make her wear it more, because to hell with dudes effectively deciding what she wears for her.
Next story comic Thursday because I am a MONSTER! A monster who decided the next script wasn’t actually in character and rewrites and yadda yadda yadda >_<
It would be different from magic marks but different from Grace. Whether it would be more “clear” to him what those auras mean than Grace’s alien-hybrid aura is currently unknown.
