[S.T.O.R.Y. 5/12/02] Slow motion morphing

Today's comic is titled "Slideshow: or Dan gets in some drawing practice and calls it a comic"

Anyway, I wonder what it feels like to have your hair held back in a band like that and to subject it to rapid changes in volume. Would it be kind of a tugging sensation? In regards to Tedd's thoughts in the last panel there, does this mean that he edited the video to show that particular part in slow motion once they were done recording, and thus Sarah and Grace have seen it in slow-mo now as well? Just how much time passed between panels 1 and 10?

Don't think about it. After all, that would force you to consider why her hair changes length, why food eaten in another form isn't weight-gain free, and all the other stuff Dan keeps distracting people from thinking about.

You know, I'd like to see Dan do more slow-motion transformations like this. Just for the sake of practice, of course. :shifty:
MARTIN: What?
DANIEL: Okay. One, that's Star Trek; and two, it's ridiculous.
MARTIN: What's wrong with it?
CARTER: "The singularity is about to explode?"
MARTIN: Yes.
CARTER: Everything about that statement is wrong.
DANIEL: How exactly is having weapons at maximum going to help the situation?
MARTIN: The audience isn't going to know the difference. They love: "weapons at maximum."
MITCHELL: Never underestimate your audience. They're generally sensitive, intelligent people who respond positively to quality entertainment.
TEAL’C: I do not understand why everything in this script must inevitably explode.
MARTIN: Look, you guys may all know how things really work out there in the galaxy, but I know the film business. Explosions make great trailers. Simple fact. More explosions, better trailer. Better trailer, more viewers.


I have discovered that Death Note + Lucky Star = awsome.
Here's more proof.

[analysis]The effect depends entirely upon whether the hair grows of itself or, as would be suggested by the troubles with hair dye when transforming, grows out from the follicles as with normal growth. The former would allow the thickness of the hair to increase as well as the length, and would likely not cause overly significant elongation above the hairband, while the latter requires the thickness of individual hairs to remain constant or shrink, and all elongation to occur solely above the headband. Of course, additional hair follicles may develop during transformation and sprout completely new hairs (In reality, this never happens).[/analysis]

Surely all Dan's comics are drawing practice?
The book is almost always better than the movie. You could have no better case in point than FROM HELL, Alan Moore's best graphic novel to date, brilliantly illustrated by Eddie Campbell. It's hard to describe just how much better the book is. It's like, "If the movie was an episode of Battlestar Galactica with a guest appearance by the Smurfs and everyone spoke Dutch, the graphic novel is Citizen Kane with added sex scenes and music by your favourite ten bands and everyone in the world you ever hated dies at the end." That's how much better it is. - Warren Ellis.

Nobody ever told Picard that "Ye cannae change the laws of Physics!". They just DID it. - Vampiress Kat.
