Valentine’s Day Sex Drive 2020

Welcome to the Valentine’s Day Sex Drive 2020. This year Epic Fail and 47 other webcomics are once again fighting the good fight for body and sex positivity. Maybe we’re also pushing back against the loneliness Valentine’s Day can cause.

Don’t be lonely; there are 48 nudes for you to find. It’s like an Easter Egg hunt but with Bewbs and Cawk. Don’t forget to visit all of them (list below)

Below is Epic fail’s contribution: a nude ‘pin-up’ of Amuletts. I put up a poll on Patreon and she won! Is she actually popular? Or just deemed most likely among the characters to get naked?

This time I drew her inside a ring of fire, in a challenging foreshortened pose, plus cool lighting (due to the flame). If she looks a bit demonic, trust me, it’s just the light. (Process video of this on my Patreon.)

Elf Girl Birthday Art by Mark Egan

Mark Egan of RAWRtacular Comics (which publishes of Back Office and Bata Neart) has made a beautiful piece of Birthday Art for me of a young Amuletts smiling while rushing into battle. We can only suppose this is a rear attack. That’s the expression you pull when you spot a lovely rear to attack.

Sexy Bunny Day 2018

Happy Easter care of Sexy Bunny Day from United Webcomics.

Since Easter and April Fools Day fall on the same day this year it only made sense that Amuletts become an Easter Fool.

Blame Someone Else Day 2015

It’s Friday the 13th known to some as Blame Someone Else Day, so me and a bunch of other artists from United Webcomics are taking this opportunity to tell you whose fault it is we all turned into artists, or, that is to say, name our influences. And do it with ART!

So this one is sorta a combo for me: I have drawn the Goblin King from Labyrinth as played by David Bowie*. I cut my teeth drawing portraits of David Bowie’s Face. Labyrinth is my favourite film of all time and vastly responsible for getting me into the fantasy genre. The art design was also done by one of my favourite artists of all time: Brian Froud. He’s known for books about faeries illustrated almost exclusively in watercolour. Oh and there’s Jim Henson, too.

* Sorry I cheated and used an old piece of Fan Art instead of drawing something brand new. Because migraine.

Star Wars: Empire Uncut Released & they included my scene!

empire-uncut-amy-letts-1

The Star Wars Uncut project is a massive fan collaboration to remake the Star Wars movies. This crowd-sourced project started in 2009 when Star Wars: A New Hope was cut up into segments, lasting only a few seconds each, and divided amongst thousands of fans to remake in anyway they chose, then stitched back together again! This amazingly creative project won a Primetime Emmy for Outstanding Creative Achievement In Interactive Media in 2010.

Character Design: Lan

Last character design for Epic Fails old adventuring party – those who passed the torch to our current crew. The next time you see them they will be in the comic!

This is Lan, Human Fighter who wields a Bastard Sword. He was young and inexperienced and I’ve tried to make his appearance reflect this. He is wearing chain mail, not having been around long enough to pick up some really good armor. I went with a classic medieval style hairstyle for him.

Lan - D&D Human Fighter

It’s sort of a challenge to make each character look distinctive, but fun too! Do you think I have succeeded?

Character Design: Willi Creutsfeld

This is Willi Creutzfeld, high-level Fighter and original leader of the adventuring party (the position has been in dispute, or just plain neglected, ever since). He hailed from a place called Brighton Pierre and for a while that was our default rendezvous point.

I have his Player to than for buying me my first set of D&D dice; I remember he was quite superstitious about his and hated people touching them, therefore I’d deliberately aim to borrow his (yet is is only by playing Amuletts that my full potential as wind-up-merchant is unleashed)!

I’ve dressed him in Plate Armor, which I’m pretty sure is correct, although I may regret all that detail later on. I wanted to make him look experienced and leader-ish. What I find a bit awkward with designing suits of armor is that traditionally they would have a MASSIVE CODPIECE! If I’m being faithful I ought to include it but they are… a little… distracting? I don’t think anyone would be looking at the characters face! Actually you don’t tend to see them in Fantasy Armors so I feel there’s a precedent for omitting it. Then again his name is Willi…

Right, four down, one to go!

Character Designs: Dalion & Minerva

Character Designs for Dalion & Minerva – more of the ‘original crew’ of the adventuring party now known as Shieldless (and previously known as ‘hey you guys’). Want to know something cute? These two got married (the Players not the Characters)!

Dalion is a geriatric Halfling Mage who, due to being small and wrinkly, we nicknamed Raisin. He wasn’t always a Halfling; he used to be an Elf but died many times (actually on the day Amuletts met the party they were dragging his corpse around), failed his system-shock, and the only way to bring him back was a reincarnation spell. This is what he came back as. It could have been worse.

Minerva is not a Bard, she was just very fond of Bagpipes. She is a human cleric of Idun, the Norse keeper of apples and granter of eternal youthfulness, and as such she always appears 18 (regardless of her actual physical age).

Character Design: Jira of the Singing Axe

The next few pages of Epic Fail are going to be a flash-back to an earlier adventure where the PCs met Loki. Now since the party make-up was completely different then (aside from Amuletts & Martin) I’m having to create some new character designs.

This is Jira of the Singing Axe. She is a female fighter who would not be seen dead in bikini-mail!!

As you can see I have a couple of armor designs for her. I dug out her character sheet and she is supposed to wear Banded Mail (an armor somewhere between chain & plate). Neither of these are actually banded mail because that was a poorly-designed, inflexible armor whose use was quickly abandoned. So design number 1 is based on Gladiator armor over chain whilst 2 is more like Mongol/mirrored armor (but it’s fantasy so I can totally make stuff up!).

Which design do you like best? Tell me in the comments!

Female Fighter Jira of the Singing Axe

On and FYI design No. 1 was drawn traditionally whereas No. 2 was drawn with my new Cintiq 15X. Can you tell?
