- Sometimes I worry that I give Winston all the very best lines of dialogue, and the rest of the characters have to make do with the scraps that are left over. I guess he's just a character that likes to say a lot, especially if he can be insulting or selfish at the same time.

Allen will hopefully come into his own a bit over the next few months - If I were you I'd watch him carefully. Things like being forced to dig a swimmingpool and building his girlfriend's shelter then sleeping outside? They're not accidents or throwaway gags. Allen is a very deliberately sculpted non-entity. He's actually probably the hardest character to write for, especially considering he doesn't say much. I'm really trying to show what's going on inside him without him openly saying "I feel like this! Bla bla bla", which is more of a Winston approach to his inner demons.

I haven't been able to show off April much either yet. She's also got her fair share of imperfections, but again it's the quiet type that will only manifest a little later in the story. I'm pretty much on track with Apple, and Larry's fairly transparent: he just wants to get the girl, despite his crippling nerdy handicaps.

So, yeah, I think about my characters' development probably more than I should do for such a lighthearted comic strip. Runt and Candy were always very blunt, and they grew independent of me. Here I'm going for subtlety and grooming the characters' growth because I know specifically where they're headed and I need to make sure they get there, otherwise the plot won't fit together.

Important Announcement - Because May is the exam month here at university, Special Level's update schedule may be interrupted a bit. I'm not sure by how much or when, but it's a possibility. I'll try and make sure there's something posted up every Monday and Friday, but there might be some filler. The good news is after May, I'll be buckling down to finish everything outstanding, like the Totally Kotor book and the free sketches I promised various people.

Also, to help me get through the month, I will be willing to accept any guest comics or guest art anybody feels like producing. If you feel like contributing, send me an email at arandomsheep@gmail.com.
