Pg 2: My Kindom for some Phat Loot

On this page the focus has moved away from the blue riders (somewhat like in 1914¹) and concerntrated on the figures on the red carpet.  Oo look!  They get lines!  These must be core actors instead of low-paid extras.  (What, did you think making a comic was cheap?  I’ll have you know that King fellow is top-notch, he starred in a deck of playing cards)!

So, these guys have performed some kind of heroic deed and the kingdom is very thankful.  But someone isn’t satisfied and rants accordingly.  She may be within earshot of the monarch but doesn’t seem to care.  The dwarf annonces her to the crowd – knowing full well how she’ll hate it.  Everyone laughs uproariously.  Amuletts vows revenge.

I have carefully worked out concept drawings for all the main characters, except Dirk.  Nothing really seemed to work out.  But then I had to draw him, properly, for the comic.  So I decided not to worry so much.  I had a kinda Samurai-style in mind, so I went with that.  He looked too girly so I added a beard.  Voila!

¹ This is a bad art joke, reflecting my sense of humour and too many years of art education.  It refers to Der Blaue Reiter, a short-lived expressionist group of artists with many prestigious members.  It ended in 1914 after only three years due to the war.  Not really funny at all.

Can’t tell so far if the comic’s really any good, to be honest. The art is lovely, but i’m not exactly drawn in yet. Post more!

Thanks for the comment, I know it’s hard to judge whether a comic is any good from only a couple of pages. Thanks for reading though and I hope you come back when I have more up.

I know I’m starting this comic a little late to be posting but all you guys talking about taking the loot simply don’t see the value in a title – espcially one granted by the king of the land. we are talking free food and lodging from the best places whenever in the kingdom – conections with high society (which will give them a little intel Amulett would be able to take advantage of) and of course first pick on all the other lucrative quest offers. sure i missed some things but my DM would regret giving me a smokin hot title like that cuz i would milk that puppy for ALL it was worth hahaha. ~peace all, if that fails… bring the Vylance

Yeah but Amuletts kinda gets stuff for free anyway 😉

But your logic is sound, my friend. Her appraisal in this instance is essentially wrong. It is more valuable than she thinks.
