Who Has Done It Pt. 4

June 1, 2010

Ugggghhhhh. Never merge your layers in photoshop until you KNOW you don’t need them separate. Always nice to add 5 hours to my workload.

Anyway, anyone who knows where the character design for Ed there came from gets 50 nerd points. Note: Nerd points are worthless.

Also… for some reason, …Aviva? I don’t know what it means, I was told to say it by a friend. So, there you go.

    Undo! UNDO! You don’t have undo in Photoshop?

  3. Jessica says:

    I love her ringtone. =D

  4. Alex says:

    Mike, not when you’ve realized the mistake after you saved and closed to take a break

  5. legumious says:

    I think the rule is “Always duplicate all your layers before you merge them, and keep them for backup forever whether you think you need them or not because .psd filesize isn’t a concern,” right? :P

  6. Mike says:

    I do what legumious does, for the reasons you describe, Alex. It’s always good to have redundancy is a good thing.

  7. ChibiRico says:

    Appropriate ringtone, I think (anyway in my weird twisted logical it is, if you don’t get it, don’t try to xD).

  8. Jacob B. says:

    Ditto on what everyone else said. I have six different copies of every page I do, one for each major step of putting the comic together. I will probably never mess with at least four of those six copies ever again, but they’re there if I do need them!

    I’ve burned myself before.

    Also, sadly no nerd points for me. ;_;

  9. B0Bo says:

    Ooh, I know! Edward is based on what I will look like in 30 years! (or maybe 10 years if I REEEALLLY don’t take care of myself)

  10. Zombieman! says:

    You always have to make backups! Come on!!

    I gotta love that Edward

  11. electric.paganini says:

    I had to stare at the picture for awhile before I figured it out, and I didn’t even know the guy’s name was Edward, just what movies he was in. This Edward is Edward Asner, who most might remember last as doing the voice of Carl in “UP”.

    Yay ^^, I get 50 more nerd points. Once I reach 5000 I was told I get a prize. I wonder what it will be.

  12. Flapjack says:

    Is he…sparkling?

  13. Funky Al says:

    The Ed design comes from Cosgrove, of Freakazoid! fame.

    EVERYone knows THAT.

  14. Kaitlyn says:

    The teacher’s design is so cute! I love her!

    …watch her end up being a total bitch (if she wasn’t in a previous strip? I can’t remember…)

  15. Tommi says:

    I thought he was Cosgrove from Freakazoid too

  16. Alex says:

    *ahem* and who PLAYS Cosgrove from freakazoid, Tommi?

    …Also, Kaitlyn, she isn’t a total bitch, she’s just doing her job. FUN FACT: Her appearance is based on a teacher I had in high school.

    PS Still working on he thursday strip! hang tight, everyone!

    Holy doodle, an awkward internet shout-out. Aviva is pleased by this, mmmyeeessss…

  18. bob the hobo says:

    Hmmmmmmmm… i dont see any way for me to love this strip on a greater level…… unless….. noooooo, i couldnt do that! its illegal in 7 states!! :D

  19. Tommi says:

    Learn something new every day.

  20. Aviva says:

    Aviva means “spring” (the season) in Hebrew. No idea why you would be told to say it randomly… unless it means something else too :P

  21. someone late says:

    so, totally late to the answer of this, but i was reading thru the comics cause i started reading and my laptop died like a year ago, and i got so preoccupied i stopped reading all of the webcomics i did read. anyways, Ed Asner is the actor, the line itself is also a throwback to Ed’s character Lou Grant on the Mary Tyler Moore show (a show so old I was not alive while it was being filmed, but my father loved it and therefore it was watched on rerun constantly while i was a small child).

    anywho, the comic is fantastic. Keep up the good work!

  22. someone late says:

    i would be referring to the alt text as well :)

  23. Jesse says:

    I read this on an iPad, so I can’t see alt text.
