Normally when I hear someone say "merge" I imagine the horrifying and painful process of merging C code from separate subversion branches.

But I think this turned out okay. I'm pretty sure this is someone else's fetish too. God knows there's a fetish for everything else out there, and undoubtedly multiple websites for all of them.

One girl isn't absorbing the other in this so much as they are merging to become one (or something). But if you're into that other thing instead of this thing, go ahead and imagine it like that. I don't care. vOv

OMG, yep you found someone this is the fetish of and on several levels too: Unwilling prey for it: yes; willing prey, yes; mutual merging into one being? YES <333

And the fact you did it my favorite way: multiple panels/views, so we can see the whole process in plot progression and in this case progression of their becoming one? Whew...

Bows to the "doodling master", because I'll bet this is what I briefly saw you talking about doodling on instead of doing coding work tonight in the chat >_>

Well done indeed.

I like the idea of merge but not painful.

This looks like fun more than pain and death - Great job

Well look at that, there was enough mass left over from the absorbtion that she grew a pair of clothes! Nah, I'm just kidding with you. I'm sure you got plenty of people already telling you this, but you're an awesome artist.

Although, I have to say, their hair seems to have gotten shorter. Of course, I'm just thinking too hard about this. =P

Just try not to imagine what a merge conflict might look like.

oldman40k2003

Posted by oldman40k2003 9 years ago Report

A merge conflict would be either many little copies of them, in various states of merging... or a body horror of duplicate body parts. :| Maybe a cute body horror though. :)

GREGOLE

Posted by GREGOLE 9 years ago Report

Branching out is always fun.
While I hesitate to call it a fetish, I have always found concepts like form-shifting, merging and all that to be fascinating, and I think you handled this one really well. Sort of reminds me of that old commercial on the Sci-Fi channel, but a bit sexier. XP

The use of the colored hair was a great idea, and helps distinguish the two of them.

oldman40k2003

Also, is C code any more difficult to merge together from separate branches than Java is? Most of the time I have had to do merging with other people, the merges are fairly simple because we've all been working on separate, minimally interacting, sections of code.

WHTB

Posted by WHTB 9 years ago Report

I dunno. Never had to merge Java code.

I've heard that other revision control systems make branching and merging a lot easier, but we're stuck with SVN here. And it's all I've ever used, too.

oldman40k2003

Posted by oldman40k2003 9 years ago Report

Well I can tell you from personal experience that SVN is worlds ahead of the versioning system it was made to replace, which was CVS. CVS fucking sucks, and it does things in super retarded ways. /Programmer Rage!

I keep meaning to play around with some of the more different version control software, like GIT or MERCURIAL, but I always get distracted...

WHTB

Posted by WHTB 9 years ago Report

I've heard horror stories about CVS. partial commits? Ouch. That just sounds like a world of pain.

Git looks neat. I keep hearing more about Mercurial.

Oh, and I have a Perforce hat. (Swag from GDC.)

Posted by AndrewLondon 9 years ago Report

Git's fantastic. You have an awful lot of power and can generally do exactly what you want to do, if you're clever and experienced enough. The main, obvious problem is becoming clever and experienced enough.

Oh, um. Nice picture. :) The eye colours are subtle, but an additional nice touch.

How about source safe? Has always done things near perfect for me. Conflicts are detected and its your responsibility to fix them instead of some stupid routine. Resource files are crap though you might as well get latest and start over.

oldman40k2003

Posted by oldman40k2003 9 years ago Report

I don't know about Source Safe. It is not open source, and in general when it comes to programming tools I only bother with the open source stuff, unless the company I am working for requires me to do otherwise.

Consensual, loving merge... Very nicely done. It is an appealing idea, in a strange sort of way. And good idea colouring the hair and eyes (green eyes to emphasise that it is a merge, not a one-way absorption).

Deleteduser_120

Posted by Deleteduser_120 9 years ago Report

Very well done indeed. I must say, I found this a little bit frightening at first, but you have worked on each stage of this sequence really well, and it has turned out wondrously. And you're definitely right - there is a fetish for just about anything out there. Good idea to combine their colourings as well as their shapes too. Fantastically done, as always.

Whenever I see two people merging, I wonder what it would feel like mentally. Do both people keep their conciousness, but share thoughts? Do both people's minds disappear to make way for the product? Merging two beings is a mysterious phenomenon indeed.

One of the big things I've always wondered about is why they want to do it. Asking why is one of my favorite parts of pictures.
