Honestly, I have no idea what the other 4 could be. As excuses go, how do you beat “I can’t have sex with you because I’m somewhere else.” That’s hard to top without magic or superpowers being involved. The only thing that comes to mind immediately is some sort of body swap situation. “I can’t have sex with you with Lauren’s body!” or a gender bender situation, or something involving both.

Deus looks weird in panel 2. I don’t have actual face blindness but I have trouble recognizing people sometimes. Not really people I’ve met, but I have a lot of trouble placing actors I’ve seen before unless they meet a certain distinctiveness threshold. Even then, put a wig on them and I’m easily flummoxed. My wife is the polar opposite. She’s like an organic IMDB. We can be watching an old movie and some kid will say a single line and she’ll snap her fingers and say “that was Heath Ledger when he was 7” or something. 9 times out of 10 she’s right. More like 19 out of 20 really. The way I see it, everything about the human mind exists on a spectrum, sexual orientation, math skills, ADHD, all that stuff. If actual Prosopagnosia (face blindness) is a 1 and my wife is a 9 (at least), I’m like a 3 – 3.5 maybe.

The hard thing about being an illustrator who has a hard time with faces, (not just drawing them, although certainly that too) is when I draw a face and it looks weird, it’s sometimes hard for me to figure out what’s wrong with it. In this case I think he looks, I don’t know. Puffy maybe? I think his nose is too big – although he’s supposed to have quite a nose and chin/jaw on him. It’s still too wide? I don’t know. Actually, he reminds me of Matt Smith, like his face is too big for his… face. Oh well.

The painting behind them is the cover to Space Witch, which is the second Star Justice book that I’ve been going on about. I just needed something to fill the frame and ran out of time to paint my own thing.
