I was originally sketching the artwork for this comic, but I kept visualizing it in sprite format. So rather than reinvent the wheel to look like something different than what I was seeing I opted for the sprite version.
Fun little note about mixing Final Fantasy and Dragon Warrior Dragon Quest sprites is that Dragon Quest sprites don’t have the same black outlines that accompany their fellow Square-Enix’s counterparts. So I decided to add the outlines to Erdrick Loto so that he was consistent with the rest of the sprites.
Last week was a very good week for Dueling Analogs. Thursday’s comic, Super Mario Bros.: How it Really Happened was the highest day on Dueling Analogs EVER. It always makes me feel good when I create a comic that I like, but don’t know how the masses will receive it. And then it’s received very well. Two previous examples of this are the 4chan/Twitter comic (previous highest day ever) and Mega Man 10 Easy Mode animation.
Speaking of animations, I working on another one for Dueling Analogs and hoping to run it on the site pretty soon. So until Thursday…
