I knew what PMD was going to be doing for “catch”, but I wasn’t sure what he was going to be catching. So, I asked my kids, one of which said “he should be catching a squid using a plunger”. That’s honestly where I was leaning, but I wanted another opinion. I guess my kids have my brain.
Earlier on in my comic strip, It’s Plunger Monkey Dynamo Time, I spent a lot of time trying to capture dynamic motion, mostly trying to figure out how to use manga-style speed lines. I’m going to have to play around with that some more, as it’s fun and can create some cool results.
This image also marks yet another new facial expression for PMD. I’m not positive, but I don’t think I’ve ever drawn him with his mouth open, other than the toothy grin. He doesn’t speak, so there’s never really been a reason to.
