Mr Happy 1 - pg 4 by Bracey100 Mr Happy 1 - pg 4 by Bracey100
So finally done with page 4. Summer has ramped up and work is slowing me waaaay down but ya gotta pay those bills. Maybe I should start a Parteon? If I could make a couple a grand a month I could afford to just make this comic my full-time job. I dunno, what do yall think?

Another thing that slowed me down is that I ended up scrapping all the figures other than Mr Happy and redrawing the fleeing people. I just wasn't happy with them and if I'm not going to do my best work on my own comic whats the point eh? Gotta hold myself to a standard even when it's driving me crazy that my page isn't done yet. I'm dying to share my stories with you all but I and you all deserve my best efforts.

You can expect that sort of thing from time to time in my book. In fact Chuck Norris will play a major role in a story. Though for copyright reasons I wont be able to name him outright.

You can expect there to be plenty of pop culture in this book. I just loves my pop culture.

Best response I could ask for. I particularly proud of the bit with the crab. I went through a few other jokes before I settled on that one.

I see Mr. Happy took being trampled quite well. On the other hand, it seems like a really minor thing to him. I really like how the happy face on his chest changes with his actual expression. And I also like the poses he has in the second and third panel; there's quite a bit of motion going on there :D

Although one thing I've noticed that bugs be a bit: what happened to the duck and elbow floats (and the swimshorts) he had on page 2? =P

Glad you liked it and yeah he's pretty tough physically. His density goes from something like gelatin to a hard urethane (like say a bowling ball) at his whim. Some having beach goers stomp on him is no big deal. 

I decided a while back when I was doing comics in the :icondeviantuniverse: group a troupe of Mr Happy would be to rarely change his facial expression but instead have his chest emblem reflect his moods.

Thanks about the poses in panels 2 and 3. While doing said DU comics I came to realize I was not doing enough dynamic posing, especially with foreshortening. Looking back on my previous work I'm looking to improve every way possible. 

Well honestly by now I thought my audience would have caught on that Mr Happy can alter his shape and appearance at will. Page one his arm stretches into frame, page 2 he's wearing his weird beachwear, page four he's got a sun on his chest. I thought I'd inferred enough so that this wouldn't be confusing for anyone.

Having his chest reflect his mood is a great idea. I love that big smile on his head. It makes moments like the last four panels here absolutely charming. :D

And my bad there. TBH I actually figured Mr. Happy actually put those on rather than shapeshift them, which is kinda dumb on my part considering we all know about his ability to shapeshift. I didn't consider that he could shapeshift to "add" or "put on" clothing and accessories, so I apologize there. ^^;

No need to apologize, I did consider adding a panel to show the clothing morphing away but for flow I decided to nix it. 

Yeah, I just love that ever-present grin on his face no matter what.

If you think that it'll help, maybe you can start a Patreon just to get some extra money in your pocket.
If so, what tiers are you thinking of adding to it?

No clue, I gotta do some research to see what other webcomic authors are doing and figure out what works for me. I'm thinking of maybe Patreon exclusive strip might be a fun incentive. Definitely, early views of art and profiles before they are released to the public. Maybe live chats and such as well. I'll have to keep brainstorming.
