An alternative title for this strip was “Times are Tough.”

This one goes out to all my homies who send resumes all over the internet and have nothing to show for it but an inbox full of “How to tie your shoes” spam.

This is the first comic I was able to make with the development version of LDView, which has a handy camera-coordinates feature that shaves a good couple hours off the development time for each comic. I can now position the camera for each frame graphically, instead of guessing at geometry, groping around like a euclidian virgin trying to get to 2nd base.

Wow, that analogy kinda got away from me there.

Anyway, the upshot is these should be coming more quickly now, and (heads of figures aside) should look much better. Don’t believe me? Check this out. This is scaled down from the 1600×1200 render, but the Lever Lackey’s console looks damn near photorealistic.

It’s a shame the LDraw head models still look so segmented.

Anyway, that’s it for now.
