Phix, FTW! (Love the expressions.)
Yeah, expressions are where Paul really shines. I can totally hear Phix in the last panel because of that expression.
Both expressions in the last panel blew me away 😉 I’m quite sure I would have the gravel to get in Phix’ face like that (I’d be huddling in a far corner by now), but Nudge does it so cheerily I have to hope she doesn’t blow it and get on Phix’ bad side again 😉
(*&^^ forgot to proofread – I would *not* have the gravel (nerve) to face Phixlike Nudge does
I give up – too tired to type…
Nudge grown on you–as Phix finally is admitting. Win-win!
But I think Phix got a technical win on points…
Upon second look, I like style of Phix’s feathers.
I agree, great wings in today’s strip. I love the first panel where Phix’s wing is the mid-background.
oh boy, looks like we have that sisterly tension again….
why is everything a competition for women?
why is everything a competition for women?
Geeze – how many men do you know?
Why are you asking? So you can show you know more men than whoever answers? Not everything is a competition! C’mon! 🙂
Ha! i know more men than any of you! Who wants some??
I know men can be competitive, but at least we know when enough is enough, plus our competitions don’t usually result in tearing down friendships but building new ones. so yes everyone is competitive, listening to that basic instinct, but i just feel that women don’t know when to stop.
In my experience women judge best when to back down/quit pushing better with other women, and men mostly with other men. That may be cultural tho.
With these two (looks up and sighs) only Paul knows.
same way its a competition between men also.
pack dominance thing i think or territorial? who knows. But both genders do it 🙂
if for men it’s a pack dominance thing, then for women it’d be to show the strongest male who the strongest female in the group is, for those that don’t want to share. honestly ladies, most men have moments when being shared is the coolest concept in existence, but we want to be shared by the worthy.
Being shared is highly overrated. It’s messy, smelly, awkward, and too demanding.
If you’re talking about raw, unbridled animal interactions, then yes. Thing is, humans have evolved a society in which unnatural selection takes over. It’s all about mutual attraction or expediency. For the population at large it’s rarely about power or dominance. We tend to protect the weak/infirmed and even let them breed. That’s why we have so many illnesses and genetic defects in humans. For the most part anyone can breed with anyone and there is no accounting for attraction. Lyle Lovett & Julia Roberts proved that.
True that…what did L.L. ever see in her?
Ah, yes – as Kate said – the woman has to be careful to not smile too widely because she’d get lipstick on her ears.
If they ever decide to have a Batman film with a female Joker…
Oh, that was just evil. And as soon as I stop strangling on my giggles, I will tell Kate so, very repressively.
Diana Rigg and Sally Field…
But where are we going to find a leather cat suit big enough to fit Phix?
Actually, she’d only need half of the cat suit…
She’s already wearing the bottom half of a cat suit.
But, actually, after i typed thatr, i thpought od Dame Diana and Dame Maggie Smith in Evil Under thge Sun… The only possible way that their first confrontation could have been have been enhanced would have been by adding cat sounds in the background.
Puts me more in mind of this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ov-1S8Xxd94
Push, push, push. You’re asking for another ba-donk-a-bonk to the head, Nudge. She’s one of those irritating people who simply must have their acomplishments acknowledged. Phix’s expression says “I’m trying to be civil to you, so shutup you annoying little snot before I brain you again.” And she means it in the nicest possible way.
“This could be the start of a beautiful friendship!”
“Just admit you like me.”
“Sure. After you’ve been baked with apples and root vegetables and served with brown gravy. At least I’ll like the gravy.”
Phix looks beautiful calm and nice and smiley in that last pannel.
If i were nudge i would have started running and not stop for a few…years 😛
Why stop? If she’s after you, you became an easy target.
I love how Nudge’s horns grow and curl in the different panels. I’m convinced that is on purpose.
I’m also convinced that SOMEBODY was inspired by SOMEBODY’s post about facial expressions, so had to try out a whole bunch of them…
Thanks for that link. Awesome tutorial…
Her work is beyond awesome! I’ll be pushing myself for next week’s batch of comics. 🙂
She definitely inspires one to bring one’s A-game to the drawing board.
Ditto thankies for the link! Another bookmark to study and learn!
Wonder what Nudge’s humanic form looks like? Hope she’s still got those freckles.
Maybe a petite redhead with an attitude.
Well, there are a lot of red-headed Greeks. (Nudge’s profile and hair look Greek to me.) The Ptolemys were Greek, from that part of Greece – so it’s a good bet that Cleopatra was a redhead, not the “black” woman she’s often portrayed as.
Aw… that’s just so tender! *sniff*
I’m just gonna say that I love this one immensely.
Nudge is still creeping me out. But I do love Phyx’s face in the last panel.
I like both their faces in the last panel. 😉
Something tells me she’ll just keep poking until something happens…
BEST PHIX EXPRESSION. EVER.
On an unrelated note… where is my new gravatar of Phix from that last panel?
That happened to me once. Are you making sure to type in your correct email address?
Did you make sure to designate that Gravatar as “G” rated?
That was it… I had made it “PG” due to the last word there. Thanks for the tip!
Of course I did not stop to consider that the text is illegible at that size…
Hahaha!! This one is AWESOME!! XD
If Phix = Tea and Cookies, then Nudge = ?
Milk and Crackers?
Kool-Aid and Burritos?
Root Beer and Pizza?
Coca-Cola and Pop Rocks?
Whatever it is will likely be laced with hot peppers and served in dribble glasses and on breakaway platters.
Nah. Laced with soap and laxatives.
Which makes me wonder what the bathroom is like? Does Phix have a giant litter box? A bed of hay for Nudge? Or do they just use appro. sized toilets? Perhaps poit their waste to somewhere? No muss no fuss and no TP needed. May still have a bidet, however.
Yes, I know, I have too much time on my hands.
I get a strong Mid-East vibe from the Library and it’s environs. So there might be plenty of sand anyway…
Pizza with anchovies, of course.
I do! I do! I do!
And so the Odd-couple style spin off comic begins! 😀
Oh, wow. These two are turning into frienemies! XD
