Old updates

December 5th, 2011

Finished manually copying all of the old updates from livejournal onto wordpress, down to the dates and times. Because I’m anal that way. I’m sure there was actually a much quicker and simpler way to do it that I just didn’t know about.

Testing

Still messing around with this wordpress stuff. Stand by.

3rd Interlude, pages 13, 14, and 15

October 23rd, 2010

The last three pages of this Interlude. I’ve actually been sitting on these for a few months now. -__- I kind of wanted to hold them for a bit until I could redesign the site, and could promise that Chapter 5 was soon to follow… But people have been sending me emails and messages asking about the comic, and a few seemed to be worried that I was, well, at the bottom of a ditch somewhere. Don’t worry! It’s only a metaphorical ditch, and nothing I can’t climb out of. ^_^;; Seriously though, I have done some work on Chapter 5, but not as much as I’d like. So we’ll have to see. The forum, it seems, has been attacked by spambots and I’ve locked it down for the moment.

If you’re still reading this — thanks.

3rd Interlude, pages 11 & 12 + 1 new fanart

October 2nd, 2009

Those of you not in the Philippines may have heard on the news that the country was hit by a pretty crazy typhoon last Saturday. We’re used to typhoons over here, but this one turned out much worse than anyone was expecting. My family and I were lucky and weathered it just fine. But many people right in our city lost most of their belongings, their homes, or even their lives; and other cities and regions were hit much worse. I know things are bad all over, and several other countries were hit with terrible natural disasters recently; but if you’re sleeping someplace dry and safe tonight, please spare a moment to think of those who can’t. If you want to find out more or are interested in helping out, there are some photos, videos and links collected here and here.

Okay, that’s all. We now return you to your irregularly scheduled cheesy fairy tale comic. There are three more pages in this Interlude, and Chapter 5 is going to be another monster-sized one like Chapter 3.

3rd Interlude, page 10

July 21st, 2009

I was experimenting a bit on this page with a different type of pen, so let me know if you notice any difference. Or not.

The middle bubble in the last panel originally read, “I’d tell you ‘Jack, son of so-and-so’”; but it occurred to me that, if readers could accept the idea of a guy called “the Boy”, they might actually believe that his father was literally named “so-and-so”. Which would admittedly be kind of funny, but not quite what I had in mind.

3rd Interlude, pages 8 & 9 + 89 icons + 1 fanart

July 12th, 2009

What, you thought only the prince was cool enough to get flashback scenes?

When the time comes I can never think of anything to say here. Um, as you might know I’ve been trying to redesign this site. I had grand ambitions of learning css and having a sleek layout and super-cool menus and things. Yeah, that’s not working out so well; I’ll probably end up just doing it in regular caveman html after all. I keep thinking there must be some better way of organizing the fanworks though.

That’s all I guess. Thanks for reading. Next page sometime next week I hope.

3rd Interlude, pages 6 and 7 + 3 new fanart

May 22nd, 2009

Now that I look at it (as if I haven’t looked at it before now), page 6 seems to be the sort of played-for-laughs slapstick that’s actually quite horrifying and unfunnny. Like all those “funniest home videos” that show people falling and hitting their heads or getting mauled by bears.

I was supposed to put up a big batch of new livejournal icons by tomoyoichijouji, but it will have to wait for next time. In the meantime, please check out all the new fanart. ^^

3rd Interlude, page 5

March 23rd, 2009

By the way, this princess and giant aren’t supposed to be from any fairy tale in particular; I just made them up since I couldn’t find a tale that suited the purpose. For all that a dashing prince rescuing a princess from danger is supposed to be a fairy tale cliche, it seems like it almost never happens in any actual fairy tales! Princes who do rescue princesses rarely get to look cool while doing so. Of course, Ricardo doesn’t usually end up looking cool either.

3rd Interlude, pages 3 and 4

March 16th, 2009

Updates for this interlude should proceed smoothly from here on. Next page will be on Saturday Sunday?

In the interminable last few days before the release of the Watchmen movie, I made a silly little doodle of the Boy, November and Red re-enacting a certain scene from Watchmen (that ended up not making it into the movie). Then, when I scanned it in, I started having a little too much fun imitating the John Higgins coloring, and… the result was both dorky and terrifying.

3rd Interlude, page 2

When I think about it, a lot of the inspiration for Ricardo’s character is probably owed to Rumiko Takahashi.

Still catching up on emails!
