Sublo & Tangy Mustard #5 - Opposites

Author Comments

When Katy tells them they're too similar, Sublo and Tangy Mustard try to prove how distinct they are from each other.

I know this one's pretty short, but it's the first in a new batch that should be coming out more frequently. Most of them will be longer like the previous episodes, but I wanted to do a quick one to get things started.

love your art

I still can't figure out how you do it.

@Xuvero's review was quite interesting on the subject of their differences, but I'd like to add something to it. Tangy Mustard is, indeed, the cool one. He doesn't care what other people think and he's confident, unlike Sublo, who is awkward and insecure. We saw this when Sublo tried to draw a beard on his facehole to be cooler. This actually makes sense with their dynamic. Sublo goes along with Tangy Mustard, which is why they're so similar. Sublo is impressionable so Tangy Mustard's confidence imprints on him. At least that's my thought on the subject.
Anyways, about the actual episode. It was funny. The animation was once again pretty nice. I liked how Sublo & Tangy Mustard legit reiterated everything the other said the whole time. It wasn't just a joke you threw together. Also loved Tangy Mustard's creepy backwards speaking and the way he had to subsequently explain everything. Katy's attitude fit perfectly and I quite like Xuvero's explanation in regards to it.
Great job again, I have to watch the next episode soon! You really are talented.

These are some good insights! I've been thinking about this stuff lately since I've been working on pitches for the show, and trying to verbalize the characters' personalities instead of just intuitively writing them like that. I think when I was writing the first few episodes I wasn't really conscious of this stuff but it just kind of naturally developed like that somehow, based on the performances and what I thought would be fun.

This is great, as always.Keep it up, aalong64!

"*talks backwards*" (OK, this time I can't quote my favourite line).

Just a short one, comes in, delivers the joke and it's over. I like this one a lot, I remember the first time I watched this series, after watching this episode I kept looking for their similarities, and yeah, they are pretty similar.

Actually I find this pretty funny, Sublo and Tangy Mustard are oppositely similar, if that makes any sense. They have some quite different characteristics that in the end can be summarized into the same thing. They are both silly, dumb and foolish but in different ways.

I can relate to them a lot, me and my best friends were just like them: similar in different ways. And it's funny that for everyone, we were basically the same, but for us, we were complete opposites. The thing is that we only saw the details, and most people only saw the overall.

aalong64 responds:

Yeah you got it, I'm aiming for that kind of classic 'best friends' thing where to a third party like Katy or Wubhamer, Sublo and Tangy Mustard seem to act pretty much the same, but S+TM are very aware of their differences, even if they can't agree on what they are.
