With someone as seemingly perfect as cel, i think jefbot’s paranoia can be considered justified.
ahaha yes, i can see why he’d suspect that.
glad you could understand jefbot’s thought process, Kerosus! 🙂
I can see those gears in JBs head turning extra hard in the 3rd panel there. JB was right in doing some quick thinking there, especially after all that happened at Cel’s hands when they first met. I love the awkwardness of the first panel, and I am in love with these beach strips! The colors are magnificent, and it’s perfect for this time of year. Would be nice to see some beach strips when winter rolls around. (hint, hint. 😉 ) You Cali people get to hit the beach anytime of the year, so us “East Coasters” aren’t as privileged as you “West Coasters”. JB should take whatever he can get with Cel, especially if she wants to play some AW’s. To me that seems like the perfect ending to an interesting day. (Although I have a feeling CF or Mu may have something up their sleeve(s) in the coming strips to embarrass JB in some way. Another amazing one, my good sir!
yeah, sometimes jefbot just needs to stop cranking his “gears” and just enjoy the moment, Spanky! fat chance of that happening, though. heheh. and it’s true what you say about socal beaches – unfortunately, that means the look of the beach in winter strips will look pretty much the same as it does here. also, your feelings of this not quite being over are right on. there are still several strips remaining in this arc! 😀
The paranoia is just. XD I love the first panel where they are kinda staring at eachother in a sideways glance.
Good work Bot
thanks, DJ! yes, sideways glances are much safer. they’ll get a bit more comfortable with each other in the next strip. 🙂
aw…man…don’t you dare mess this up for Jefbot…I mean…um…the details and color on the page are great…the footprints in the sand, the sunset..even the way the boat in the background moves across the panels till it’s out of sight…great work again man 😀
i’ll try not to mess it up for him, Hans! heheh. sometimes i just can’t help myself though… 😉 and i love doing those little details like the sailboat, especially knowing that it’ll get noticed by sharp-eyed readers like yourself.
quite possibly, JM! …but it’s probably not gonna be that easy. 🙂
why does cel look so much like me? 😉
i used pics of you for reference, skinny. 😉
As always, awesome work. I like her style.
thanks, D. Long! i’ll try and keep her stylin’.
love is in the air! *le sigh*
well, that or the smell of the pacific ocean on a warm summer day, Vee. 😉
Love is in the air, eh, Jefbot? 😉 Great strip. I have to say again how much I love these beach scenes. They look so good. And this one especially looks very romantic. Cel is hot, btw.
thanks, MC! more romance to come…
Jefbot has a girlfriend… Jefbot has a girlfriend… First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes an Avatar in a baby carriage! I LOVE this story line… The only thing that’s better than the love story, is the beautiful animation and color! Excellent job!
well, they’re not exactly “going steady” yet, FunnyShaffer, but things certainly look promising. 🙂
Nerds in love Nerds in love 😀
ha! true dat, TadBot! the Cornfather would love to sing along with you. 🙂
These beach strips are some of the most gorgeous strips you’ve done yet and that’s saying a lot. The colors are eye popping.
thanks, JK. my cintiq has been getting a workout doing these beach strips. 🙂
No Jef, your just paranoid in paradise with the perfect woman, may I say more, or do I have to punch you for being a numb skull*smiles while cracking knuckles*
maybe not a knuckle sandwich, Zach, but jefbot could use a good smack upside the head so he can start appreciating what’s right in front of him, for sure. 🙂
Very cool, though I was hoping to see Cel in a bikini. How ’bout some fan service?
a bikini just wouldn’t suit cel’s personality, Greg, so you won’t be seeing her sporting one in the strip anytime soon. but if you’d like to do some fanart of her in such attire, i’ll definitely post it on the site! 😀
the sad look in bot’s eyes in panel 3 as he contemplates whether or not Cel’s too good to be true. Simple and poignant. Hats off, sir.
exactly what i was going for. thanks, man!
This comic makes me giggle. Love it. :]
hope to keep you giggling in many strip to come, Nat. 🙂
Though I do disagree with Spanky. Third panel is definitely *Wait a minute…* and gears stoping with *This is not possible…* At least thats what I think.
This date is going in very gooooood direction…
jefbot’s definitely taking a beat to assess the situation in that 3rd panel, however one would like to interpret that, Maryz. and yes, so far, so good! and let’s hope it stays that way, for jefbot’s sake. 🙂
wheres’ musashi? or is he part of the bbq…
heheh. i think we can assume he’s still on the Cornfather’s shoulder (possibly drunk at this point), xin. 🙂
Go JEFBOT…score!!! — at Advance Wars ;D
First off want to say thanks SO much for the button! I got it awhile back but haven’t been able to post here until now. It is so awesome.
Second off if there is any guy out there going that this girl is WAY too good to be true. There are no women out there that actually like to play video games as much if not more than us. I submit for your consideration my wife! She has 2 level 80’s in WoW (I have 1) She has 3 other characters over 70 (I have 1). She has gear that makes most men cry when they see it. She also loves being a “bitch” (her word not mine) in PVP. You think it feels bad when a guy beats ya…..just think how it feels when a girl does it and you KNOW it’s a girl cause she waves goodbye to you as you’re dying. Yeah my wife kicks arse! Look her up on Aerie Peak Brighteyez. Okay now that I’m done gloating great job on the strip as usual Jefbot! You have a great multi-talent and the lines and the unspoken lines.
thanks, man. glad to hear you’re enjoying your BOTton!
and it was so nice reading what you wrote about your wife – proof that women like cel really exist! as you’ll see in the next strip, an element of this storyline is about challenging the preconceived notions about “gamer girls.” hope you – and your wife if she’s reading! – get a kick out of it.
thanks again for the awesome comment.
Wooo! Third comment in a row! Im becoming a regular…
Anyways, awesome strip yet again! I didnt see and sputtering effects over jbot`s head in panel 3 (maybe cuz he`s sober?) but the face was more than enough to show the emotion!
And i dont know why but i feel like i should tell you that panel 4`s picture of cel (the face at least) is the best youve drawn so far, in my opinion..
Keep on drawing and we`ll keep fawning over ce–i mean–reading………hehehe…
yep, i think three comments in a row definitely makes you a regular, SonikkuWii! 🙂 and you’re right – after his time on the pier and long walk on the beach before cel arrived, i think it’s safe to say jefbot’s sober at this point (especially since he’s only had one beer since his arrival). the same can’t be said for the Cornfather though, who we’ll return to soon. and glad you liked that last rendering of cel – the more i draw her, the better she’ll look, methinks. just check out jefbot from the first few strips up until now! 🙂
Sometimes I wonder if I’m real. You know, if I’m just some figment of some imagination or dream come true, but then I realize “Oh wait, I’m just a nerd.” C:
or maybe you’re a dream of a nerd, Foxmouse! you’d better hope he or she doesn’t wake up! heheh. actually, i have those same thoughts all the time. 🙁
But Jeffbot, you’re not famous enough to get Punk’d. D; At least not on TV.
This makes me wonder if I’ve ever made anyone feel like that “Am I being Punk’d?” Like the guys in my cooking class. They’d be arguing comic plots and game strategies, ignoring the little girl with pink hair, then I’d jump in “Well actually…” and they’d be stunned. Then there was the day I brought in my old Japanese Pokemon Green Version. There was drooling.
I thought I’d add, and it’s a little late, Cel is SO not dressed for the beach. Then again, that’s how I dress for the beach. I await the next comic.
glad to hear from a video game-playing lady firsthand, Maruul! i would’a been right there with those guys drooling over your Japanese Pokémon game. heheh.
oh, and jefbot’s not sayin’ a cartoon version of ashton kutcher is gonna pop out of the sand, but he is thinking there’s a distinct possibility that cel is an elaborate joke set up by friends (the Cornfather) or family (Xinda, possibly?), because she’s so awesome. 🙂
and yeah, cel basically doesn’t even own a real bathing suit. hence, her inappropriate attire.
Advance Wars is awesome. =D
Cel has taste with her games. Good stuff, Mr.JB =]
yep, cel totally has great taste in games, Crazi-G! just another reason jefbot can’t believe he’s not being punk’d. heheh. and glad you dig Advance Wars, too. 🙂
She’s a lessssbiaaaan…. I can sense it.
I’d totally hit that. Maybe. I shouldn’t say things like that on the internet, my ma might read it.
cel definitely has a few secrets, Mythezza, but being a lesbian isn’t one of them. well, as far as we know at any rate. heheh. if you see her kissing a girl in the next few strips, consider me corrected. 🙂
wahahahahahahahaha……..the last panel left me in tears…….due to major laughter disorder….great job JB….
sweet! glad you got some chuckles (and tears) outta this one, JF3!!! your disorder’s welcome here anytime. 😀
you know the phrase JB….if its too good to be true……
i think that phrase is probably going through jefbot’s head between panels 2 & 3.
Awesome dude, it’s not every artist can truly capture a double take moment. Also i hope JB’s got some heavy duty SPF on or he could end up looking like i do just now. So i’m back, ever have to take a second holiday to get over the excesses of the first? Too much beer, way too much sun, (i’m still peelin’), and not enough Motorhead. Lemmy and the boys put on an excellent show, and of the other bands playing, only UFO disappointed. All i can say is the Hell’s Angels sure know how to throw a rockin’ party!
rock on, Deaconvorbis! sounds like all the excess and sunburned skin was totally worth it!!! and i totally understand about needing a vacation after a vacation; that’s how i feel on most mondays after the weekend is over. 😉
Hehe… in panel 2, I thought he was grabbing her! Pretty romantic stuff going on for Jefbot, let’s see how he handles it.
then jefbot really would be a perv, speearr! heheheh. and whether or not it’s romance or just a one-sided infatuation remains to be seen. let’s hope it’s romance. 🙂
PSP /and/ a DS? Seems a bit much…
you know what’s bad? that’s exactly what me and my fiance would do every time we go to the beach… we’re not what you’d call the… “beach-going” types… usually if we were there we’d have been dragged along by some mutual “friend” who had decided we needed to get some sunlight…
