More appropriately-timed fan art! This one‘s by Jackson Ferrell, who does the webcomic Sketch Comedy. Man, as an aside, Amazi-Girl’s hair is so much harder to draw than Amber’s. Jackson seems to have nailed it here, though.
I realized there’s been a lull between Freshman Family Weekend character models, so let’s dip back into the fan art well for a bit, shall we? AND C’MON, HOW CAN I NOT RUN THIS NOW??? It’s Amber/Amazi-Girl by TerribleNerd, and it’s like the best thing I’ve ever seen. I probably said that same thing about her Sarah, but I really really mean it now.
Reno and Falyn Snow are Sierra’s adoptive parents. They’re pretty cool and laid back, and that’s obviously imprinted on Sierra a bit. It’s uncertain, however, where she got the barefoot thing from. Maybe somewhere out there in the void, her biological mom is a flower child nevernude.
These… may be the penultimate batch of character models of family members introduced during this storyline? I know there’s at least one more to go from a character nobody’s ever seen before, but there may be some others who might’ve already have character art drawn.
I did a guest comic for Sam and Fuzzy!

Dumbing of Age Book One’s ComiXology release is reviewed by IGN!
Here is a picture of a kitten.
Charles and Linda Walkerton are the parents of Walky and Sal. Linda was a pretty dang important character in the Old Universe’s It’s Walky!, sort of like how Gendo Ikari was important in Evangelion. She’s only five years younger here than she was in It’s Walky!, but I think she’d look relatively younger than that because she’s not a former government field agent in charge of running a super-stressful anti-alien organization which hopes to, uh, cancel the apocalypse, which probably would age you like it would the Presidency. So these are the younger, hipper Walkertons. As before, Linda’s a few years older than her husband.
Of course, the other major difference between them in Dumbing of Age and the Old Universe is that Linda and Charles actually raised Sal rather than hiding her across the country with a pair of foster parents. Here they only sent her across the country to go to a boarding school. Oh, Linda. Your parenting ideas are weird and arcane.
