Mojitoooooo

mo-hiiiiii-tooooooooo

Today I had a raspberry mojito, which is a "gay" drink in every sense of the word, little umbrella and all. I spent a lot of time picking out too many mint leaves packed into it...

Comic background test which is not going to work at all, but it took too many brush strokes so I'm posting it anyway.


Moooooooooh heeeeeeee toooooooooh.

So yeah. Sunday.

Fun comic, and nice BG painting. THe BG is not bad, I like it. I think it would work better, if you simplify the detail on the leaves. STill it's a well design piece. :)

Maybe it won't work in the comic, but it's good anyway. You could use it some day for another work or ilustration =)
Hehehe, it's funny saying mojito like that xD. Though... I have a question: what is it? Here we call mojito to a mix of ron and lemon

Oh Clio thanks for visiting my blog ;),beautiful posting,about your background I think is not to bad maybe a little details on the leaves and more shadows :), but your style is really cool I like,doesnt look like other background you have a nice style with brush.I hope to see more in 2006 :D.... Im leaving to New York to visit to my family :) so I wish a beautiful Christmas and Happy New Year to you and your family,

Thanks Alina! I'm going to have to go with something else entirely, however - will post those here when I make them more consistent-looking. This background's far too fussy, and my characters are very swoopy and simple. Uh... swoopy.

Daven: It's rum, lime, tonic water, sugar, mint... However the place here used raspberry syrup instead of sugar, and must've jammed 1/2 a highball's worth of mint leaves into it, so I was drinking mostly leaves. Pretty refreshing despite being green and slimy.

Virginia: New York! Nice!! Have a safe trip.

Nice BG, but still it look incomplete or unfinished!

Maybe they thought you wanted tea instead of an alcoholic drink?

And mojito's rock! That is a classic Cuban drink! You saying Cubans are gay?! Wow, I didnt know you were like that Clio...tsk tsk...

Oh, fun art too...:)

Clio said...

corny: I did not drug you! It's your own damn fault for being allergic to avocado! You watch too much America's Next Top Model. There's your problem.
