I'm being lazy, so I'm just going to upload the video in a new comment. This week, old footage, bad drawings, aaaaaaand a rant about the Art Commentary Community. If you don't watch a lot of art YouTube Channels, this video will probably not interest you. But if you want to hear me rant about adults acting like children, here ya go! :D

The footage is old, but the audio is new. Shockingly, and happily, I did actually sell that Husky image at Con+Alt+Del in Chicago back in 2019! I remember the dude who bought it. He was super cool, and also bought my Green Man original ink piece *O*

The next two pages were incredibly fun to draw, and I hope they are a little funny.

Books she is referencing...and misreferencing (she is an airhead, she got some of the titles wrong, and none of them are going to notice except maybe Yulie XD):

Foxfire (actually, it's a series)
S.A.S.
How to Stay Alive in the Woods

I have some of these. I don't have any of the Foxfire books, but I know Mom, Dad, and even my Uncle—who was NOT a hippie, but loves to pretend he's on the frontier, had several...I think some came from Grandma's & Grandpa's collection? She didn't' just read Readers Digest XD.

What's Rin got in her bag? If you can't tell yet, tune in next week to find out!

I do not think you read two books by Jo Nesbø and then go bust up a drug den with a knife but I do not know. The girls are in front of that decision and they seem to know what is required, lmao. Just missing a wooden stake, a bag of salt and some Taoist Fulu :D

I am not sure how prepared they are, but at least Rin thinks she's prepared :3

did they let you borrow their boots and crossbow too?

just sayin'

They should have for where they're going! But, alas, no, they did not.

Her parents are lenient, but not that lenient. The boots would have been a good idea XD \


Crossbows are the smarter choice, also. I'm going to give you credit for that. So many fantasy or post apocalyptic books saddle the women with bows and arrows...clearly having never shot a bow and arrow. Those fuckers take MUSCLE to pull back. I'm sure you already know this. Even dudes have trouble with them, and you can get some fancy ones with pulleys and stuff to make drawing the string easier.

Again, I have a feeling you know this, but thought I'd just put my thoughts down anyway XD I used to occasionally shoot my grandpa's bow and arrow...until my then boyfriend's younger brother got his mits on it and BROKE it D: I was livid.

But...I got over it. It's just an object, and it can be replaced ( I never met my grandpas, they both died before I was born, so...less sentimental meaning to me, and more a point of interest).

Did he dry fire it, overdraw, or just drop a rock on it?

They’ll break your arm if you draw a bow without permission at the archery store.

Edit: I shoot a bow every day (because I follow Apollo) and the heavier draw weights require significant practice. Crossbows with mechanical draw aids are superb weapons for support (not melee) combatants.

None of the above. I let the little shit carry it (he was like 12: I feel old enough to know better). I wouldn't let him shoot it, because I'm not qualified as an instructor, and he...was very immature for his age anyhow...but I wanted him to feel somehow included...so I let him carry it back (I didn't let his other brother, 13, who was more mature shoot it either. I wasn't about to have a bow injury on my hands D:)

Since he was a little on the larger side, and carrying it without arrows behind us (I was in college by this point), I wasn't paying attention and he had put all his weight on it trying to string it and snapped the wood (not in twine down the middle, but...I dunno the anatomy of a bow: the part whee the string wraps on one of the sides).

The only reason I let him hold it, was because I could barely sting it, so I didn't imagine he could do anything with it, and I'd instructed him clearly to just carry it and bring it back. He stopped behind us and I didn't notice, then casually handed it back saying it broke o_O

...

Le sigh. I let it go. It's okay. But it was scary having to explain it Mom and Dad (while it was my maternal grandfather's bow, my dad was the one who shot it with me when I was a younger...so...it meant more to him by that point than it did Mom).

Edit: also that's awesome you get to shoot one! I have always liked bows and arrows, but have never gotten to shoot one much, aside from in our open field XD I always got the task of eagerly retrieving the arrow XD

I would actually like to own a crossbow, for practicality purposes. I mean...while I try to be optimistic, I would like to be prepared in case everything does go to hell and civilization crashes for a while.

I loooove Rin’s pose here. Absolutely makes the page. It’s just great that she decides to pose randomly.

She's silly...and she's ready to get the show on the road (much like I'm sure my readers are XD XD).
