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.

== Spring, 2006 ==

Chronos: So, she gained a form! This offers possibilities.

Crystal: This now reminds me of that animation of this strip someone did.

You know, I'd like to see Dan do more slow-motion transformations like this. Just for the sake of practice, of course. :shifty:

[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?
