Hot off the figurative presses, as I literally finished lettering this one moments ago ^^;
Finally getting around to directly addressing the kaiju in the room, as it were...

I love the perspective art in the 6th panel. That's some really good stuff, right there. Keep it up!

Wow i am way behind, last i read, she finally kissed him and it all looked like she was finally becoming less judgmental of herself. Is this a retcon? I thought that she was some kind of adventurer who was blessed by a god that took the form of chuck norris... is she a kaiju now? Is this some kind of curse? Can all of her species do this? And why is she burned? I'd hate to see the thing that could ACTUALLY do THAT to gogo... let alone gogo-jira...

You've got a good long memory ;)

This IS, in fact, a different story, but in light of the years of comics I made before this, you could fairly call it a retcon, too, since it begins before Gogo and Andy ever met, and could go in a lot of different directions than before.

As for her species, abilities, and the thing that put a burn on her...um, stay tuned? :D

lul asking others for confirmation for you being crazy when the conditions that need to be met in order for you not to be crazy are not in their favour.
Whatever do you  mean Andy? Of course I am not a monster, that is ridiculous. Clearly you were not in the best frame of mind when the event happened, surely this more rational explanation is what REALLY occurred!

Maybe if Andy spent more time in the gym and less time smoking and hallucinating random kaijus he'd be able to jump thirty feet in the air too! Don't accuse Gogo of being a giant monster just because you don't have any lower body strength! Someone's jealous.

So I think one of three things will happen here. 1. Gogo tells Andy the truth and confesses. 2. She will try and laugh it off and say he's crazy, and yet it doesn't convince Andy. 3. She starts to say something and ends up getting interrupted by something.

This scene is one of the reasons why I find it hard to commit to a long-form script. There are so many ways this could go that the original "script" was/is "they talk over lunch", and go from there.

There are points and milestones that dictate the general arc of the story, but the space between such things--like this one--can be a wild card. There were several options written for her response before figuring out the one that was (I think) juuuust right :D

But then when you do find that 1 line that really nails it, which doesn't happen all the time of course, the reward can be such a good storyline

It is true through that defining moments like this besides the obvious point-of-no-return can define a story entirely and "force" characters into situations, it can also help them grow to even new heights. I'm hoping for the ladder!

:iconvanheist:
VanHeist Featured By Owner Feb 14, 2018
You got that right :)

It's simple enough to imagine a general arc of a story: Characters meet, then somewhere along the line, X Event happens, then Y Event, etc...

But as you go along, you might stumble upon things you simply couldn't have planned out in advance that might enhance or even upset the planned progression.

"Breaking Bad" is a terrific popular example of the sort of dynamic I'm trying to describe; a story that had a skeletal structure in place, but whose elements and characters shifted things for the creators throughout the process enough that the milestones they envisioned for the story arc were reached in ways they didn't foresee at the start.

I'm definitely not on THAT level of narrative excellence ^^; but it's an instructive example for allowing enough flexibility for yourself as a creator that you let your characters potentially change what you'd envisioned.
