Re: 1190: "Time"

What, exactly, is leading people to believe the girl is sad? Since when is sitting down solely the act of a depressed person? Because I see no other clues to suggest it. Why can't it just be that she finished her part and was waiting for the guy to finish up and join her? Well - without other visua...

Re: 1190: "Time"

Haha! Join me and follow the way of the snow. For snow will melt and all will begin again! Are we witnessing the first Great Schism of the TimeWaiter religion? Or is Snowism just another heresy that Time will soon forget? I will take this burden. I will be the Martin Luther of Snowism (Iceology?) a...

snow is white - see #702


sand is white - see #505

I see no compelling argument one way or the other. (though I am curious about the lack of buckets)

Re: 1190: "Time"

IT'S SNOW!? I don't think so. Remember The Fumble? Pressed snow almost certainly would crumble into larger pieces, not into a heap. Perhaps you're right, but I would counter that the fine details of the conical towers aren't possible with just sand. I humbly disagree: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wi...

IT'S SNOW!? Then why did Cueball dip his toe in the water? Crunching ice is fun? IT'S SNOW!? I don't think so. Remember The Fumble?

Re: 1190: "Time"

Gosh, you all bloody love 103 don't you? Well, I have something to tell you!! Just because it contains the most 'action' does NOT make it the best frame. I think in terms of narrative and suspense 126 was by far superior. The not knowing, the questioning, the confusion. The laughter (brought on by ...

Re: 1190: "Time"

I wonder if the thing near the left border is actually Cueball. It's either another person, or some highly-sophisticated, as-yet-unseen sandcastle feature. I don't think it's Cueball, the lines are much thicker than the lines that make Megan. Another Flag! We are seeing only a fraction of the castl...

Re: 1190: "Time"

For the record, it's 2 frames away from 100 frames... A nice round number. That said this last one couldn't have taken more than 15 seconds to draw and I'm a huge fan of the idea that this will go on indefinitely.
