25 Essential Expressions


This challenge has apparently been going around the webcomic circle, and so I join in the fun. That was WAY harder than expected, and I did rather poorly. I am a cold, emotionless being. Well, I do rage fairly well, with confidence!

Edit: Anyone wanting to try this out, here's the template.

Are you kidding? Dude, those are totally awesome. So awesome that I worked out my log-in problems with blogger and started up tallyroad.blogspot.com needlessly JUST to be able to post on your blog and tell you how awesome your expressions are :)

I'm just glad to be able to post to your Syncophant again.

I figure I might write up some essays on things like the meaning of the gutters between different panel to panel transitions and then poke Scott McCloud and see if he likes it :) I've definitely extended on McCloud's work there a bit, and on what makes images iconic vs. just abstract.

Oh and congratulations on making it to #99 OVERALL on the Belfry list. You can try to chase me up it 'cos now I've made it to #36 overall :D I wanted to pass 'Monster Lover' and now I want to pass Kit and Kay Boodle. However, the increased readership is making me go crazy trying to hold my crummy art together :)

I could post a note on how I just watched Tarantino's 'Reservoir Dogs' for the first time :) heck, why don't I do that. Might even end up linking to it from Tally Road eventually...
