Old by AsheRhyder Old by AsheRhyder
This is an old comic, from way back in April. That sketchbook is a little big for the scanner, so here's the text if you can't read:

E: Hey, Jareth...
J: Hmm?
E: Do you ever feel... you know... old?

J: OLD!?

J: What do you mean, OLD?! My image was inspired by David Bowie! The man doesn't age! I don't >do< old!

E: What are you talking about? I meant that we've been in four* other of Ashe's sketchbooks.

J: ...oh.

E: And don't ever try to intimidate me again!
J: gotcha.

E: You wouldn't happen to be jealous, would you?
J: Jealous? Of what? I >have< a face.
E: Bowie >is< getting up there in years. He's what, 59? 60?
J: ... So? Crawford is 63.
E: But my image doesn't come from him anymore.
J: ...Bloody Gerard Butler...
E: He's only 35.
J: ... You suck.

END
(*By now, they've been in about seven sketchbooks... and countless solo projects)

Jareth: "Does this mean that you're going to do the 'this is sparta' line?"
Erik: "Stay away from any pits of death."

It died on the flaming alter of "Ashe Hates Drawing Hats And Never Got Better At Them".

I was a bit confused about Erik's two different-colored eyes, but I LOVE the meta of this strip!! And how Erik's insta-mood-clothing predates Jareth's!  I admit it... I really like Erik in the hat and cape.

Actually... capes... capes are yummy.

Your drawing style has DEFINITELY developed, while retaining recognizability.

Early versions of Erik were designed off of the stage make-up as seen on Michael Crawford, who had (at least in the pictures in the book I used as reference) one color-change contact to make his eyes brown and blue.

Actually they are about to start a fourth sketchbook very soon. They were not featured that much, but they will be soon, but they both are in three, And that third is pretty darn full.
