This comic took way longer than I originally thought it would. A huge part of that where the custom drawn frames I did.
Surprisingly, the other thing that took a while was doing the storybook panels. Yes, they look simple, but I didn’t know what style I was going to go for when I first started. I did several different tests and trials before settling on the simple cutout look.
I’m happy with how things ended up though, especially all the bright colors. The storybook stuff really stands out against the other panels.
That druid’s place is incredibly crowded, which makes it both a pleasure and pain to draw.
The panels themselves are way too crowded/busy, which I think makes it a bit difficult to follow. I tried to cram a lot in to three panels. Live and learn.
You may notice some things popping up on the site (such as a characters section, about section, etc). Feel free to peruse, but for the most part there’s either nothing or poorly formatted information. I’m working on getting this stuff up and going soon, so stay tuned!
This is a webcomic. Here’s some information about me.
Level 7 Artist; Chaotic Evil
The artist and writer of this comic. Didn’t want to post a photo, so here’s a picture of him as a fat baby. Please note: he is in all actuality, not a fat baby.
Actually, let’s drop the third person thing. I’m kind of an artist, but more than that, I consider myself a creator. I’ve worked in film, comics, short stories, 2D, 3D, animation, and pretty much every other medium you can imagine. I usually can’t decide what I want to do, so I try and do it all. Like most artists, I don’t consider myself as talented as I’d like to be, and go through cycles of putting forth immense effort, then wondering why I bothered.
Level 5 Blob; Chaotic Good
An all around good guy with a heart of gold. Loves those around him, even those resistant to his charms.
Level 6 Blob; Neutral Good
Known for his eyebrows and for being annoyed at things.
Level 1 Treent; Chaotic Neutral
Part kitty, part tree, all cutie. Officially Jasper’s familiar, but he answers to Bo as well.
Level 12 Druid; Lawful Good
Probably the only nice adventurer that exists. Bo and Jasper have yet to learn her name.
Bo and Jasper getting all snugly. Reminds me of this (one of the few of my own comics that still makes me laugh).
I often say I wish I had spent more time shading or with colors. This was one of the few times I feel like the comic is “complete.” I really like how the shading turned out here, as well as the layout and colors. Probably helps that this was a simple three panel instead of a full page, but I’ll take it.
On the website front, I’m sorry! I upgraded to the latest version of WordPress and most of my custom theming broke. If you’re having trouble, it should hopefully get fixed soon.
That splash panel at the bottom took a bit of time to lay it out, but I had a lot of fun doing it. As usual, I wish I’d had more time to populate with more critters, but I’ll have plenty of opportunities for that soon. Critters are fun to to draw.
That ‘lil kittree is a cutie.
Fun Fact: It was originally not going to be with them for as long as it has been. I was going to have it so that the lil guy would sacrifice itself to help save Bo and Jasper, but when the time came I couldn’t do it. Too cute.
Don’t hold your breath though… I’ll work up the courage to kill it off eventually.
Fun Fact 2: In writing this, I realized that I haven’t assigned gender to the kittree, which makes writing about it with pronouns difficult.
I never really thought I would keep doing this as long as I have. In fact I probably wouldn’t have it weren’t for the dedicated fans who were always demanding more. I owe a huge thank you to everyone who reads this comic. I’m pretty lucky.
Keep commenting and letting me know what you like, hate, want to see next and of course spelling corrections (for which I can always count on the internet).
Also, this Sailor Moon inspired level up is dedicated to my wife who has supported me through it all. Thank you!
