- The first frame is a render of a famous painting by Edwin Stocqueler titled 'An Australian Gold Diggings' from 1855. There are two reasons I used this render rather than actually trying to draw a gold field: firstly, I wanted it to look different to the rest of the comic in order to convey that the human activity is still something separate to the City-Characters like Sydney, and secondly (alright, mostly), I can not draw a gold field at all. I originally planned to draw it myself but it was so difficult and the resulting image so poor and difficult to understand or recognize as a gold field that I didn't want to use it in the comic. I still have very mixed feelings about using a render like this - while the image itself is public domain, it does feel a little cheap and revals a lot of my weaknesses as an artist. Then again, plenty of other decent and respected webcomic artists do the same thing.
I guess what I'm trying to say is that I can draw dumb faces and silly animals but not much else. Maybe I'm just worrying over this too much.

Don't fret over the goldfield's picture, I thought it as a nod to films like "Dot and The Kangaroo". Looks like Syd is going to have an 'interesting' meeting shortly and I wonder if Bris is getting a little 'itchy feet' now as well.

Ahh~ Sweet gold!

Maybe I'll just help myself to a little, too...

@S BENZ: OMG! I have not seen Dot and the Kangaroo in about 28 years! Kinda strange though since I live in the USA. XD
