My Other Blog Is A Giant Robot

I'm Liz, and I draw a comic called Adrastus. On this blog you're going to find art tutorials, robots, stuff about my comic and Manga Studio, and lots of feminism. I'm one of those feminists who believes that women should be equal to men, not superior. I want equal representation in media and hate ridiculous over-sexualization of women.

I curse sometimes. If you want to see my fandom stuff, that blog is titled feelsandships.

Chapter 14 I Watched The Footage I’m not sure what to say in today’s post, except that my back is starting to feel better. I got a lot of advice on my workstation setup when I posted photos to Facebook, and though I haven’t found the magic configuration that’s going to make my current back pain go away immediately, things are at least a little better. Unfortunately being laid up has meant that I haven’t been able to work on any pages this week. All of next week’s pages are done, but it’s like I got this little bit of a buffer back and working on the buffer injured me so now I have to use the buffer up recovering.
So that’s basically it. Hopefully by next week I’ll be able to work on more pages and get stuff done.

Chapter 14 Not Important Robbie does not have time for you, Michael.
Update on my back pain- it’s finally down to a manageable level. I had to have Chezhnian from Tamuran go beat the hell out of my back on Saturday to get it that way. There is now just a few concentrated spots of pain, and I can sit up for small periods of time without wanting to die, instead of needing to be flat on my back every moment of the day. Hooray, progress.
Now that the pain is down to a manageable level I’m going to try to add back stretches to my shoulder stretches in the hopes to make it go away entirely for at least awhile. This, unfortunately, might delay me working on pages this week. Thankfully I have a small buffer because of the work that I’ve been doing the past two weeks so it shouldn’t effect site updates in the immediate future. Still hoping to get an arm for my monitor though so I can have it in a more back-friendly position while drawing so that this problem doesn’t keep cropping up.
In the meantime, enjoy today’s page and I’ll see you Wednesday!

Just a tiny bit of a difference, really.

That chapter one cover is so old that it predates my starting to really work on Adrastus seriously. It was the original sketch for Chapter one’s cover, that I then changed in 2010 to what’s on the site currently for the start of the story.

Chapter 14 The Prodigal Son Final panel is more experimenting with SketchUp and doing a 2DLT extraction on the render in MangaStudio.
And I’d like to point out that Michael is a “weirdo” in a group of people who watch for extraterrestrials trying to take over Earth. Probably because he has a sense of humor. 
Wanted to also thank everyone who wished me well over my returning shoulder pain and offered advice. Raising my computer chair and doing stretches has helped a lot with the pain, so I’m back on track with building my buffer of pages! Now if I could just get my lower back pain to go away, that would be great. I’ve started doing back stretches as well but I still think part of the problem with my various aches and pains is having to lean over my tablet to draw. I’d really love to get a monitor arm for my Yiynova soon.
Which segues right in to my announcement that the link for the store has changed! Now instead of DynamiteCandy, we are LizStaley.StorEnvy.com! I do have some new buttons to add but all the old buttons are available for your purchasing pleasure, along with books, prints, and posters of both the My Little Pwnformers and the Muppet Avengers! If you want to take a look around, either click the link above, or the Store link over in the left hand menu has been updated as well.

I have a theory on why a small segment of men who read comics send rape threats to women who write about comics. To put it simply, they think we’re destroying their masturbatory fantasies (literal or otherwise).

You may laugh but it’s quite possibly the source of all the hatemongering. They’re…
