Commentary from December 5, 2003
I liked #52 being in color so much, I decided to give it another spin, this time with a regular thread strip. What helped that decision was the first and third panels, where… I don’t know HOW, but I drew Lovetalk EXACTLY as I wanted to in that first panel. I haven’t been able to maintain it, but everytime I want to draw Lovetalk, I take a gander at this strip. This is how I want to draw her in every strip. Even Eisu E-mailed me saying that I drew Lovetalk well, with a big lovelorn “sigh”.
The last panel was hard to draw, and I had to dig up reference pics on the net for bondage poses. No, I don’t know how he managed to tie himself up like that either, that’s part of the joke.
