To kick off the comic there’s a double update!! WOO! No comic is complete without a very sad teen/young adult, right? Right.
Updates on Friday
Elleine is not originally from Ashendere, but from a place called “The Mircepian”. She spends her days working as a traveling saleswoman in items that the people of Ashendere perceive as magic, but are not necessarily so. She is an optimist who tends to spend her time goofing around and trying to brighten people’s days. While she is playful and sometimes ditzy that doesn’t stop her from being able to take action when needed or her intellectual pursuits. She often spends free time studying language, geography, making new devices to sell, pranking others, or making new outfits. While others may see her as extremely odd or eccentric she’s often praised for these traits in The Mircepian.
Going to start posting character references and profiles.
Cryple is the middle of three siblings and the leader of a conning operation. His tiny size is made up for in his explosive and rude personality. He has a soft spot for collecting parasols and umbrellas, money is his main drive, and he tends to boss Abaite and Vishiate around. They do not use their real names unless to each other in private. Others assume that they took on these false names to try to intimidate people. Others believe the names were simply given to them by strangers and they took them on as nicknames. The origins of their aliases are unknown to most people.
He is part of a species within the Evercast universe known as Duskwalkers which are distinguished by their set of horns, eye variation, and most notably the fact that they constantly seem to let off what appears to be smoke.
Hello, everyone! I have super exciting news!
Starting this April I’ll begin to steadily post pages with Friday updates! I’ll be posting on the tumblr blog when new pages come out. I’m super glad to have this revamped version of the comic finally going up. It will feature interactive content in the future. The story and art is all done by Rezpiral and currently has music by the lovely pengosolvent!
Please come and enjoy this spooky story filled with monster, magic, abominations of science, surrealism and a teeny, tiny young adult trying to make sense of the world around them. I promise it will be fun. Or terrifying. Or whimsical at points? It’ll be a lot of things! Tell your friends and we hope you survive the ride!
Since I’ve been revamping this I thought I’d post the first page here for now to show how things are going. This and the other pages I’m working on are being queued up. I’ll announce when they’ll steadily be posted!
Zhen ur so sad what a gloomy dork
On my general blog someone asked to see one of my characters “hanging out with a friend” so naturally I did the opposite and drew Elleine and Donahue trying to take each other down.
I’m really happy with how this turned out. (:
Holy cow, so I am super glad that I decided to revamp this because it’s coming out a lot better and more organized than it was when I did the first, very messy launch. I feel much more secure and satisfied with that I’ve been able to do overall. I’m ready to start scanning in pages to color and queue them up now for the first book. I’ve taken some pictures of some of the pages for you guys. Some of them need their backgrounds or to be fully penciled out still, but I’m really excited for this! I also need to work on some full character profile and references to add to the blog. (:
Gosh, Zhen. so many tears in these sample pages…
One of two small promotional prints being made for the comic. Since I’ve been redrawing the chapters to be up to a better standard and will be updating in chunks I thought it might be good to start getting people ready for an actual chapter release. If anyone wants a copy of the print it’ll be available on my personal online store which I’ll later link to. I’m going to be selling these at a local upcoming con in my area.
The image is based on an idea I had about Zhen completely complying with Donahue’s plans and becoming just as awful. I want to say more but it’s hard without spoiling anything.
