Comic for Gamesetwatch
This was supposed to be a dramatization of raising a Tamagotchi except in real life like ET or something. The story behind the real Tamagotchi, if I remember correctly, is that they're baby eggs sent from outer space to Earth for us to raise and care for, so I was wondering what it'd be like if it happened FOR REAL.
The end of the comic was supposed to be that the alien spawn awakens and then eats her alive, blood spewing everywhere, but I decided to let the girl live so I could draw more comics in the series. Each comic in the series was supposed to dramatize what those cute abstractions of behavior the Tamagotchi does in the game looks like in real life, with the last panel just being their LCD representation with another year added on. The next one would probably feature the girl scooping up the giant alien monster's poop that's like 6 feet tall and then throwing the baby into an ocean to wash it off.
I never ended up drawing any of that though.
