Spark Comic #35 - New Friends

Hello, Sparky Fans! My appologies the lack of comics lately. It's getting near the end of term and there's a bunch of things that I have to work on. I might make a special bonus comic next week, but otherwise, I'm officially on hiatus for a few weeks until I sort out my academics. That takes priority and I hope you understand.

The ideas for Optimist Prime and Negatron were inspired by an image I saw on the internet ages ago. Only recently have I found out who the artist was and they're on DeviantArt! Check it out! :)

The idea for this comic came to me after a fun meeting with some people who I had hung out with for the first time. I always have this nagging feeling in the back of my head whenever I'm uncertain of things or decisions, but especially when I meet people for the first time. I've spent most of my life being considered a social outcast by most people, even some of which I've barely said two words to, if any, prior to starting University so my curiousity is usually set aflame in this respect. After the meetup I always end up having a bit of a mental argument, featuring doppelgangers that may or may not look like Transformers, to sort of evaluate myself since I'm very hypercritical of myself in retrospect. Over the winter break and into January, I met up with a lot of different people (and even more people throughout this whole academic year). I like meeting new people and they were all pretty awesome, but by the end I always kept having self doubts and slight anxiety about myself, even though I'm normally just polite and act naturally with everyone I meet. Thankfully, I keep in contact with a good chunk of the people I've met recently and in fact have made many fantastic friends since I started at Ryerson. Still, with such an overreactive part of my personality constantly nudging me, I thought it would be a great topic to turn into an entertaining and silly comic.

This comic was REALLY fun to draw. I've realized this before, but this was the first time I really took note at how much I LOVE to draw charicatures of people. I'm not very good at it yet, but I still find it incredibly fun to do. Amist the stress of my busy life lately, I couldn't help but smile while drawing the charicatures in the first panel (Which was one of the last things I did when drawing the flats in Flash). Detailing the Transformers was also fun as I put smiley faces and edited logos on the design, though it was tedious and cost me lots of time. :)

I hope you enjoyed this. See you next comic! :)

It's like the devil/angel thing, except with giant robots.

Very entertaining to read and very easy to connect with.

Also, I love the smiley and frowny faces on their chests haha.

This is so me too! I've been making friends at my college and I too have had thought like that, but everyone's been cool.

lol faved for hilarity. Also, I tend to have conversations like this with myself as well. I think my positive guy is a lot like bumblebee, where as the negative guy is a lot like starscream, or occasionally Snape from Harry Potter.
