Roommates 45 - Barometer by AsheRhyder Roommates 45 - Barometer by AsheRhyder
Arguably my personal favorite of the Roommates collection; this one probably also marks the most... detailed work... and art techniques I don't usually have the attention span for. Perspective, yay. Not. Extensive hatch shading. Something about this one just stuck with me. It's also one of the ones where I finally got the pen nib I was using to start working really well -- right until I dropped and bent it.

I'm aware that, besides being really cruddy weather, tornados and hurricanes don't look very much alike (except, perhaps, from a distance), but I'd wager that anyone whose livelihood was as dependant on weather as Norrington's would manage to recognize the signs of Very Bad Storm. Also, finally get to use that lovely bellowing voice of "FOLLOW MY ORDERS NOW" that he has...


Erik belongs to Leroux and Webber.
Jareth belongs to Henson, Lucas, and Bowie.
Norrington belongs to Disney, Bruckheimer, and Davenport.
Javert belongs to Hugo, Boublil, Schonberg, and Kretzmer.

Ahhh, When ya can't get your buddies to pay attention, call them to it. Works every time, esp. if one of them comes from a military background. Javert, that means you. :)

I really love this page, too. I love the movement of the wind through their hair and clothes and the way Jamie is standing at attention while calmly proclaiming tornado and everyone else is oh shi-- Also, nice teeth.

Erik's face in panel three seems very familiar, even if you can only see half of it.. The "Where the blue hell are we anyway?" face is well known to people who take frequent road-trips.

There's a couple out there, but not as frequently updated to my knowledge. The Roommates fangroup (it sounds so weird to say that) has a pretty good listing of spinoffs.

I'd already read this and ended back at it at random, then realized I hadn't given due recognition to the exceptional/amusing degree of expressiveness in the figures. Or some such. ^_^

Javert drinking a soda and poor Norrington being the only one who notices the storm! XD I really love it though. Military training comes in handy (really loving the stance in the last panel) and the one word delivery says it all "Tornado." XD

He looks so calm as he proclaims tornado. Quite like a sea officer of high rank. Calm and clear headed in the midst of a storm. And I do believe twisters can come out of nowhere in tornado alley. If a house drops from nowhere I am going to die of laughter.
