Arc 1, "My Life Sucks"/"Get to Know Colbey" continues with this Friday update! From the previews of this strip I posted in the forum, there were some comparisons to the recent movie "The Road." I admit I really wanted to see it but have not (nor I have I read the novel), so any similarities are purely accidental. Here we see that Colbey is quite obviously nervous (or perhaps, disdainful?) of this group of armed individuals below. Why, you ask? You'll have to read on. This is the introductory storyline. I'm dumping everyone straight into the story, and since this is only the eight strip I'm going to ask for some patience!
And yes, I had to resist the urge to add some swear words in the above paragraph. I'm not sure what it is about this story, but it makes me want to swear creatively.
If you missed it on Wednesday, here are two awesome fan arts I've received (shamelessly C&P'd)!
Holy fried carp on a stick, this comic has only been active for one week, and already there are TWO pieces of fan art! The first comes from Darwin, the mad artiste behind, like, a bazillion comics, all of which I read and love, and like this comic, are for mature audiences only! Check out Colbey in traditional media, and her usual grumpy self too! Makes me want to go pick up my own colored pencils if only I didn't suck goat balls at using them D:
The second AMAZING piece comes James Roden of Requiem! Ker-fracking frick frack check that out. James is a complete MASTER at this 3D rendering. LOOK AT COLBEY! She looks real! *dances* Love it! James' story is also post-apocalyptic, but his has aliens and is therefore, much cooler than mine will ever be. BUT LOOK AT COLBEY WOW. Both of these are also up on the gallery page, and please, feel free to submit your own! Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org <3
Thank you James and Darwin! You guys are the best!
Go check out both their sites, and check back on Friday for another update here! Don't forget, the sketches (minus text) of the next strips are up in the forum! Now, my forum has been preeettty quiet lately. So, I encourage you to join. Just sayin'.
And also, my main comic, The War of Winds, just reached the end of chapter 8! The chapter took an entire year to complete at 1 update/week (I guess I missed 10 updates, because the thing was only 42 pages long...D:), but you should TOTALLY, uh, go check it out.
