Like the comic says, I got the idea from watching chat antics. If it's not obvious, I'm not an artist, at all. So I deliberately chose a style that isn't meant to be realistic in any sense.
Anyway, for something so simple looking, it did take a while. I drew it first, scanned and then outlined with a mouse before coloring in photoshop. Oh and thanks to Allamorph for some suggestions on editing it to help get the concept across better.
