[S.T.O.R.Y. 4/2/02] Start of a dead tradition

Does anybody else miss the April tomfoolery?

Anyway, Sarah doesn't look that bad as a squirrel-girl, but she'd probably be cuter if she wasn't as angry. I definitely wouldn't want to get in an argument with her when she has those claws. Her fur tone is also a bit too close to her shirt for my taste. In color they'd probably be easily distinguishable, but in gray-scale it looks a bit lazy. It also has a bit of a weird effect in the third panel.
Currently a Chaos Priestess.

Yes. I'm generally not amused by the ones that actually try to trick people, but ones that use it as an excuse for goofing around... well, there's a reason I liked the Oblivious Wand Waving arc :D

I think that with the exception of hair, she makes a cooler-looking squirrel-girl than Grace. I also like that method of suggesting fur - it looks more "ankylosaur" than "squirrel", but I like it :smug:

Hm, why isn't Sarah's fur the same color as her hair? Or anything other than her shirt? I don't think I've noticed that before...
If you must feed the troll, take it to PMs.
To help avoid feeding the troll, there's an ignore feature.

I dunno. I assume that, like Grace, her head-hair is a darker shade. Which means she's damn near albino...

*snort*
I remember that comic more from various strip slays than from the original archives!
But yeah, I kinda miss AF weeks as well. As I always tend to say: EGS needs such mayhem from time to time.

Yeah, I do like the April Fools comics. I even like the ones that LIE, preferably creating as much controversy as possible. It's fun to laugh at the April fools on the boards who forgot what day it was. :lol:

I think she's cute, angry or not.

Dan, you've a little over four months to plan how to pull the wool over our eyes for next year's April Fools :D
