you’ll grow into it
Those last three panels are fantastic in every way. <3
Thank you! I really liked working on this one
Oh wow, so Jo is to blame 😉
And of course kid Phin loves her awful looking hair.
This page is so sweet though, we haven’t seen enough of Jo trying to parent and kid Phin being…a handful.
Yeeah I actually love stuff like this but I don’t get to show this sort of domestic junk too often. I thought this would be a good chance to cap off the flashback from earlier while also getting the Hair Lore out of the way haha
…so the whistle summons sweet memories of Jo? Pretty cool.
The moral of the story is, it isn’t escaping a crashing starship that matters, what really matters was the memories we made along the way that are now flashing rapidly before our eyes as we crash to the ground.
There’s always been this trope of cutting off long hair to signify growth but like. It always turns out so neat and perfect?? It’s hard to cut off a ton of hair like that, I’ve always wanted to see it come out real ugly lookin hehe. gotta earn the boof
Do you know Witchy comic? Not so neat and perfect, there.
But yes, I cut a lot of hair in my life, even my own, and often it’s not really good looking for a while… That will also be much less work for Jo, won’t it? (This sketch is still one of my favorite). Two birds with one stone.
That’s true! But now Jo has to live with the fact that she was the one who introduced this child to a life of stupid hair, sigh
This explains the hair though. Jo isn’t exactly the best person to learn to cut your own hair from, when she doesn’t have any (being a rooster).
That was my first thought. That is absolutely hilarious that the hair that gets dumber….she made that way.
I love that even more now.
Aaah, end of the chapter! A good way to end it, even if somewhat of a cliffhanger.
Thank you! Don’t worry, I won’t make you guys wait too long.
That’s the one!
Jo cut apparently the worst hairstyle ever to where Phin just laughs about how terrible it is….and never changes the hair, ever.
Does she love how stupid it looks, do it to mess with Jo, do it to mess with others (and/or see if they’ll comment on how dumb it is)…or does she actually like it despite how apparently stupid it looks?
(Never really thought it looked that dumb myself. Phin’s hair. She wants to wear it that way, it’s her problem. (Especially when she’s capable of punching a face the way she’s capable of punching a face. Pretty much anybody except Jo says her hair looks stupid, I expect them to be backing it up with some fleeing, or bleeding.))
In any case, the streak of loving almost every page that goes through here…continues. (I say “almost”, since…while I don’t remember any pages I didn’t find awesome, there might’ve been a couple. But still, it’s quite the lengthy streak. Something like 300 or 400 pages. ;P)
Phin loves her hair the way it is now! She’s just also self-aware enough to know it looks really silly.
Thank you very much <3
Silly hair is subjective. And silly hair suits a silly person. So really, the hair suits her pretty well.
Though, from the angle in that last panel, I’d say if you just flatten that it wouldn’t look that different from my hair. (Well, on the nearer side, anyway. And obviously not pink. And maybe I’m wrong about my description. Sometimes bad at descriptions. Especially for hair.)
