Sex Surrogate

Beware who you help out!

I'm not going to say much about this cap.  I worked on an off with this for awhile, but it never really seemed 'good' to me.  The story started out a bit longer, but it felt a little heavy.  So upon a recommendation, I trimmed it down and down and down.  At one point I had it about half this length, but when I read it with fresh eyes, it felt too barren.  So I this is the happy (or unhappy as the case may be) medium I came up with.

I played around quite a bit with the image itself (all color, all b&w, and so many mixtures in between that I forgot most of them), with the layout (bigger text, smaller text, moving the boxes around, changing the background image...)  and as I said before I played with the story itself.

But no matter what I did, it didn't feel right.  The minute I decided to let it lie for awhile, I created three caps.  All of them came to me easily, and all of which I am far happier with.  So I have chosen the low road, and am ready to call this done.


  1. I think it flows very well and is quite a fun read. Everything fits very well with the source picture and you put an interesting twist on an older idea. you're too hard on yourself!
