February 2022

Panel 1
Mae: What the heck is all this?
Liz: I decided I want to really get serious with my doll customization on YouTube, so I needed a bit of an equipment upgrade.

Panel 2
Liz: Now I’ve got a good overhead rig for the DSLR, a few different point lights, and even a mount for a secondary camera for some closeup shots.
Mae: You weren’t kidding about getting serious with it, jeez.

Panel 3
Liz: This is what you have to do to be competitive on YouTube! It’s so normalized now for everyday folks to be able to do higher production values that you need them to even stand a chance.
Liz: This doesn’t even begin to scratch the surface of what most of the YouTubers I follow have as a setup.

Panel 4
Mae: You should just do what I do: embrace your mediocrity and wallow in it like a pig in mud.
Liz: Not everyone aspires to “be the Marmaduke of online comics”.
Mae: I’ve lowered the bar - I’m actually shooting for Heathcliff now.
