If Only You Knew by vert-is-ninja If Only You Knew by vert-is-ninja
Playing around with the boys from a story that is still brewing in the mind. I was also practicing with style and how the comic might look in the end.

You might remember the one guy in the black coat as Mercutio Vondrasek, but due to some pretty heavy thinking and decision making (TM), I decided to rename him. This is a big deal for me, I know you may not know this but for ME, changing a character's name is a huge deal. The universe they're in though, there is tragically no Shakespeare, and therefore no real reason for him to be named after a guy who does not exist. Thus, he is now named Martinek, but Ant calls him Tek.

Martinek then, is the guy with the black hair and a haggard look and black coat. Arant "Ant" is the guy who got his ear pierced and is being heckled by his older brother who is, lastly, Hayward Kunkel.

I admit, I love these guys a TON, which is why I couldn't help giving them a small test run.

These guys all work together in a tiny company that Hayward runs, so they have a bit of history. They are also forced to be in close quarters fairly frequently which can test the tempers of those who are more hot-headed and irrational (IE Martinek and Hayward). Ant is commonly the peace keeper. He don't want no fights in here, shurriff.

Love you much, hope you dig! I love these dudes an obscene amount. Oh yeah, you heard me. OBSCENE. Thus you can be expecting to see more of them fairly soon.

Martinek, Arant, & Hayward (c) me

I saw this and laugh. There are some days that I swear, I am EXACTLY like Hayward. I'll start messing with something that looks uneven... sometimes for hours on end... just trying to make it perfect...

*snort laugh* Dude, I SO totally relate to Hayward. Freaking haaaaaate asymmetry. Obsessive-compulsions to the max. :nod:
Awesome strip~! You totally got the reaction of an OCD person down to a T.

Lol, I can just imagine this conversation between them:
Hayward: "Your face is bothering me."
Tek: "...What?"
Hayward: "Your face is bothering me."
Tek: "Well what do you want me to do about it?"
Hayward: "Fix it."
Tek: "...Jerk."
