Comic for Monday, July 11th
Well, I’m back in the country and that means we once again have comic updates!
The lighting from the door is admittedly a tad weird. It’s one of those things were the writer is like “it’s super dark but there is light coming from the door” and the artist was like “???”. Yup, that’s how this comic gets made… 😀
It seems our pale husk fellow can indeed talk. Sort of. What do we think he’s up to?
I think one of things that is perhaps as relevant to a comic as the art or writing is the editing (and not the can-you-grammar kind, that’s what I have you guys for after all 😉 – but the stitching the story together kind). Probably about a third of the outline never makes it out of the cutting room floor, which I think is the first step to this, but stitching back together what’s left seamlessly I think is the part I find tricky still. As we can tell with this little blurbles I write, brevity and elegance of communication is not my default mode of operation… Makes the comic approach a very real challenge in formatting ideas that would expansive to shove into a book into speech bubbles and a few dubiously rendered pictures 😛
All this is to say, this was really not supposed to be the first time we saw this fellow, but here we are 😉
I’ve started making minor updates the setting information; nothing particularly major, but refined some stuff, expanded some stuff, removed some stuff. How much I leave to the Setting pages as purely optional side content is another one of those editing decisions. I try not to include things that are necessary to read the comic, and conversely try not just dump entirely unrelated stuff there.
- Where we first saw this fellow. It is suggested this fellow pre-dates Mir’s attempts at the F series prototypes.
- Where we last saw this fellow. It seemed he was being ignored.
- The symbol floating in the air, I think we’ve seen that before as well.
- How could this possible be relevant to this page?? 😐
Ah, and I updated the sketchbook with art for another fellow webcomic Vatican Assassins (which is currently on hiatus, but you can view here). Read a webcomic you think is awesome and that you think should be subjected to my drawing skills? Feel free to make a suggestion! With this one I’ve cleared out most of what I remember of my to-do list.
