It sure has been nice knowin' ya, Steamroller Man!

I'm so glad I decided to teach myself to use Blender. I am by no means an expert, but thankfully there are plenty of tutorials online, so that I was at least able to get myself up and running enough to build the model for the Semple-Platt chamber. I think I would have gone mad by now, having to draw all those curves in perspective.

I also made myself a brush for the licorice whip, so I could get that twisting effect that licorice has. This is why I prefer to work digitally in Clip Studio Paint, for all the cool effects I can add, as well as the ability to modify the art without having to scrap it and start over.

I had a few different jokes in panel 2, and was changing them constantly, trying to come up with something better. It's always a race against that ever-looming posting date deadline...

Dreams are only a day away, my dude.

Haha, I've been pondering whether to give Steve Rollerman a "day job"... but now that I've made opening a Big 'n' Tall Headwear Boutique one of his ultimate dreams, of course I can't give that to him... not for a while, anyway!

I just assumed he was either a reporter (clark kent style) or he just worked retail

Ha ha ha that was just bound to happen ;D

I wonder, will he return with a new suit? how about one which actually is a creature? :P

New suit, eh? Hmmm... intriguing... 16th Jun 2020, 4:36 PM

I wish I could draw faster!! But, you know... gotta fit the comic-making around real life!

I read this comic a few years ago, found it because I myself had an idea for a hero named SteamrollerMan and wondered if anyone had ever made that character before.

Well, I saw it hadn't been posted to for a while and I waited a few days to see if it would return. Oh well, unpin the tab, move along

And just now I got to thinking "I wonder if he ever picked it up again" and voila! Cool to see you giving this another go.

Yes, I had run out of my buffer of completed pages and decided to take some time off to build up a new buffer... that time off stretched out to about a year! A lot longer than I intended. Anyway, welcome back! I hope you'll keep checking back to see how the story develops! I post a new page every second Monday!

Definitely! I was really enamoured with it from the start! It's in the RSS and I'll be a faithful reader and a patreon patron if you ever go that route.

Oh, thanks so much!
