The first time Petunia Elkwood met Todd Allison was an accident and the next time she met him was also an accident. It was also an accident that they came to live next door to each other in an apartment and it was perhaps an accident still when Petunia Elkwood found out something about Todd Allison that she wasn't quite sure what to make of.

So while I'm inking chapter two and getting all that stuff ready, let's have some delicious filler.


I always like to design characters that are relatively simple to draw. What about you guys? :)

That's Todd from Wayside.. but who's the other guy Allison is based on?? :o

March 19th, 2009, 3:09 am - Guest

@Yar
It's Dean Venture from The Venture Brothers.

I love how your character designs are so simple but unique at the same time. They all have so many characteristic things that it's almost impossible to confuse them. That's talent right there.

By the way I think Petunia is my favorite out of all your characters. Her overall design is just so brilliant T_T it brings tears of joy to my eyes.

March 19th, 2009, 8:04 am - Yahikochan

Your designing behind Todd made me laugh.

I probably should make my characters easier to draw... I mean, even in my Little Merboy comic on here, I'm seriously hating my lead girl because I made her hair really long and it takes forever to color... I'll probably have her chop it off or something...

lol ah look at his long socks! :3

my main characters are hard to draw as welll :/ shame i have to draw them all the time.

March 19th, 2009, 8:40 am - Gabbi (Guest)

I think that every character should be based off of Dean Venture in some way D: That is the only solution.

March 19th, 2009, 8:53 am - Hungryformore21

wow... I thought Todd's hair looked familiar.

Petunia with GOGGLES!!?! WHAT THE HECK WERE YOU THINKING!!?!

Anyway I've always liked drawing my main character unique and not necessarily simple-- it's harder but in a way it's more attractive. (kinda)

March 19th, 2009, 9:33 am - Theenglish

What about Tintin? You can not say Allison does not have any Tintin in him! Look , hes even going off to solve himself sum mysteries

March 19th, 2009, 1:17 pm - danandgirl

yayyy go team venture

March 19th, 2009, 1:53 pm - CitrusBee

xD Oh man! I can see the resemblance between Allison and Dean and Todd.

March 19th, 2009, 2:28 pm - Lachlan

My characters are hard to draw... in a simple way. M-Maybe. I keep gving them little accessoires and knick knacks and stuff but their overall design is more simple.

I like yours way more though :O
Ah Nozmo, you're the eel's hips <3

March 19th, 2009, 4:03 pm - ochahane

LOL. I had no idea that is how Todd Allison was made. X'DD

Hmm.. I don't really have my own way of making characters. I just think of different things while drawing the character and put them all together. Weee~ :D

March 19th, 2009, 4:43 pm - Dorobo

I always thought Todd had some resemblance to Fry from Futurama. You know, orange, upturned hair. He's even wearing red in the banner.

March 19th, 2009, 8:06 pm - .apples.

Sooooo.....Does this mean Todd was an idiot in his younger days? Since Dean and Todd are the strange mix that makes Todd Allison, you know.

March 20th, 2009, 2:47 pm - chocomog

oh god,it's been a while since i haven't post in your comic!
this chara design is cool!especially todd <3(i always have a crush on bad guys...)
i always try to make my chara the simplest but i love the ones with a lot of details <3

March 21st, 2009, 8:47 am - yoshgirl

Oh Todd... the way you were created... xDD And I love how one is jagged and the other smooth! It makes me think Todd's not that easy to get along with while Petunia seems like she's everyone's friend. ~

I actually have trouble making my characters complicated-looking... =3=;; I like to put in subtle differences, though.

March 21st, 2009, 2:40 pm - starry (Guest)

Do I perhaps notice some rather familiar eyelashes on Petunia right there?

CONSPIRACY THEORIES, COMMENCE

I SWEAR

March 22nd, 2009, 12:24 am - Stardust Cloud (Guest)

NOZMO, you great thing you, i admire you SO MUCH,and this comic just sets my heart a-flutter.
I am possibly, irrevocably in love with the Fantastic Mr. Todd Allison, and i swear i will even make myself an account and start a comic myself, since my newborn love just inspired me so (:

i love you <3 lol

March 22nd, 2009, 3:03 am - Aliz

It's too easy for you to create awesome characters. Give me your powers! =O Aliz commandz it! But seriously, why are they so beautiful? <3 I envy Nozmo. u_u

March 22nd, 2009, 5:02 am - capricious (Guest)

oh god i wish i could draw feet/shoes like you. D:
envyyyyyy. the details on the characters are veryyy nice, p.s. (:

March 22nd, 2009, 9:17 pm - Flazeebo

So THIS is why Alternate hasn't been getting much love
gotta say, love this one too though.

Most of my characters have hair that doesn't make sense IRL...or...well, just hair that you wouldn't see normally. Depending on where/when they are, the clothes and hair change. I gave one set of characters full out RP costumes (thousands of layers, oh god), and another set of characters just got normal hoodies and jeans and T-shirts.

In general I try to keep it simple...just so it isn't a nightmare to draw them later.
One thing I learned from TTGL was that the shape of the eyes can matter a lot in telling which character is which.
sorry for rambling =w=;;

nice but why

March 23rd, 2009, 6:49 pm - rayyy (Guest)

this comic is pretty sweet byt what happened to Alternate? I miss it

March 25th, 2009, 3:15 pm - limegreenfedora (Guest)

I'm---
I'm in love with the bastard lovechild of Dean Venture and Todd...D':

Other than that. I think you're designs are really cool, and you have great inspiration. I sort of see where Dean comes in because the outifts somewhat resemble eachother.

March 27th, 2009, 10:34 am - SaraKrista

Wow *__* will you be posting the design character sheets for the other characters as well? -wants to see them lol-

March 28th, 2009, 3:01 pm - James (Guest)

Allison gives off the same feeling as Patrick Bateman.....................

filler week~!

April 1st, 2009, 10:25 pm - yumi_yuki

Oh Todd you sexy beast. :l *watches this comic*

April 9th, 2009, 11:55 pm - crunchyblueberry

Ah, one of my main characters has really obnoxious hair. At first it was just gonna be shaggy, then it got neater with a little cowlick, then spiky, then messy, then messy-styled. Now I never even know what his hair is supposed to look like! D:

April 16th, 2009, 2:36 pm - Imi

THIS.

THIS IS AMAZING.

*incapable of being more intelligent for the moment*

I think I'm in love with Allison D:

April 16th, 2009, 7:05 pm - Love me not

I just read through this thing twice, and I love it. I'm really excited to see where you're going to take a story like this!

Keep it up!

April 16th, 2009, 10:33 pm - Nashira

T-Todd was based off of WAYSIDE? I am lovin' him even more now. <3
I can't wait for more updates! :D (by the way, Alternate is getting neglected) D':

April 18th, 2009, 9:06 pm - Kai (Guest)

Whoaaa you're doing another comic? o3o even though this one hasn't updated for a while...much more srs bsns than Alternate but I like it a lot!!! :D I hope this one does not die

April 19th, 2009, 4:18 am - chancake

April 30th, 2009, 4:28 pm - Sumi

Oh my god ! I really love the design of your characters ! It's so cute ! (perhaps because I'm a big fan of the 20's fashion ! xD)

I keep reading your comics until now !

(And I fell in love with Allison ! I know, we all don't care about this information at all, but hell, I'm just a fangirl after all :<)

Ah~ how lovely of you to post this! I'm always so interested in things like this, especially since you have such a unique and charming style. It's interesting to see where you get your inspirations and how they evolve. Post lots of sketches in the future, I want to see more!

July 27th, 2009, 10:07 pm - Bowee

I'd love to know more about your inspiration in the future :)
