Ooo, two-timing - that's a dangerous game, Ciaran... <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspot.com/KeenBoard/smile.gif"><P>---

Sucks to be Ciaran, he's nearly as short as his sister. Or maybe Ceilidh is tall and I haven't noticed.

I don't think Ciaran is actually two-timing anyone. I wasn't sure how to interpret that, but I finally worked it out as a jab about Ceilidh's close friendship with Phoebe and Alison. In general, the strip was good - or maybe its just because I've been going into Avalon withdrawl. <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspot.com/KeenBoard/wink.gif"><P>Oh, and I liked the colouring job. <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspot.com/KeenBoard/biggrin.gif"><P>------------------

Even standing, he isn't significantly taller than Ceilidh (see previous strip). But then, neither are Joe, Alan, Ryan, or Iain... The only one taller is Deirdre, I think.<P>I don't think he has two GF either. Otherwise, he'd have said: "I have two girlfriends. Is that better?". I think he was just mocking Ceilidh's way of counting points to see if she was an outcast or not. And the er... I'm not sure how to express that... You know, her "No, YOU are"-attitude. I dunno about Canada, but in France, it's supposed to be very childish.<P>But what I wonder is, do they ever talk out of strip? I mean, even if the boyfriend thing is rather recent, she's had her friends for two years or so now. Didn't Ciaran, like, come home for summer? Or the previous Christmas?<P>Albatross-Minh

Re. relative height: RARGH. Ciaran is supposed to be about two inches taller than Ceilidh. In order to achieve this (and since I always start drawing a character with the eyes), I tried drawing Ceilidh's eyes lower than Ciaran's.<P>In the first panel, I just missed. Add Ceilidh's hair to the equation, and she almost towers over Ciaran. I figure Ciaran's hunched over a bit (it's hard to tell, but he's lugging a bag of clothing and whatnot).<P>In the third panel it worked out better, but Ceilidh's hair *still* ruins everything. :-)<P>But ultimately, Ciaran just isn't a particularly tall guy. As for all the other characters... I'll just argue that widely varying heights wreaks havoc on visual balance. ;-) The order from tallest to shortest is something like this: Deirdre, Alan, Helene, Ceilidh, Joe, Phoebe, Alison, Ryan.<P>JOSH.

I'm more concerned about the fact that in the McFarlane house, the walls have started glowing blue...
