Pg 98: What Lies Beneath

This week in Epic Fail: Amuletts admits that everything is a front 

Creator’s Commentary: I did a punny with the title!

Loki was a bit too much of a douchebag in my original script. Not that he can’t be but he can also be very charming. Whether on not he’s being honest, or either of these characters are I’ll leave entirely for you to speculate.

Oh go on I’ll tell you:

It’s all true. Especially the lies.

Actually truth is pretty relative especially when it comes to how a person views themselves. Look up ‘imposer syndrome’. 

Pg 85: Be Careful What You Wish For

This week in Epic Fail:

Tinuvielle explains to Yoru how wishes work. Now he understands exactly what to do should he ever come across one. Tiuvielle feels so… ambivalent.

Creator’s Commentary: 

Hmm is the the opportunity to tell all my stories about cursed wishes in D&D? Okay then! Well one time the player character knew their wish was cursed so they tried to wish for something harmless so they wished for a banana… so naturally a giant stone banana fell out of the sky Monty Python style and crushed them to death. Another was from a Deck of Many Thing and not Cursed per se but as Tinuvielle would say ‘untrustworthy.’ The wish was for a good and righteous bastard sword which appeared in front of the warrior wishing for it… right along with it’s owner! Oh and then there was the mage who just messed up their wish to resurrect a dead character by saying “I wish this companion (PC’s named) to live as long as there is breath in my body” which brought that character back to life but meant that if the mage died, they did too.

What about you? Any good Wish stories?

Pg 79: God Questions

This week in Epic Fail: Yoru is very interested when Tinuvielle reveals Amuletts met a God. He goes to Martin to find out more.

Creator’s Commentary: Is it me or is Yoru a little taller..?

Upcoming pages are going to be crazy, because Martin has a crazy story to tell. Well it has Loki in it, God of Chaos, so what did you expect?

Yep, deviating from the ‘Main Plot’ again. That’s just something I tease you with 😉

Sorry about the lazy background.

Pg 74: Censorship

This week in Epic Fail: Martin thows a bucket of water over Amuletts’ and Tinuvielle’s heads, not because he hasn’t noticed the fire is already out, but to put an end to their argument. The women start to take off their wet clothes but Dirk covers up their nudity with a ‘Censorship’ sign he just happens to have on him.

Creator’s Commentary: Personally I’m against censorship (now’t wrong with a bit of nudity) but I’m quite happy to use it as a joke because I think it’s something a Paladin would entirely approve of.

From an art perspective I’m quite pleased with the water pouring down but the background is poor. It looks like they’re floating somewhere in the planets outer atmosphere :s Sorry… will fix at some point.

While you’re here let me draw your attention to United Webcomics Walpurgisnacht Project, a sort of webcomics art swap themed around “Witches Night”. Great fun, check it out!

Pg 73: Hot Elf on Elf

This week in Epic Fail: She’s not saying that she did, but Amuletts might have set fire to Tinuvielle’s bed to stop her from learning new spells.

Creator’s Commentary: I like the visual humour in this one a lot. The dialogue is not particularly amusing but the visuals make me chuckle. At least I’m making myself laugh with these comics!

It’s interesting using the night-time color palette. Is it too dark or can you see everything okay?

Pg 72: Camp Fire

This week in Epic Fail: Tinuvielle’s bed mysteriously catches fire and Amuletts jumps to the rescue.

Creator’s Commentary: No it’s not an April fool – it really is a new update! My first night-time scene; I hope you like the color palette.

I’m very sorry for the long wait, I know it’s even worse than my usual ‘schedule.’ I have been having big problems with my Graphics Tablet & Windows 8 that just don’t seem to play nice together. I’ve already changed my tablet once, because the old one would not work at all, and would consider doing it again only I hear very good, expensive tablets are having similar troubles so I’m just not sure if it’s worth it – there’s a good chance it would not solve the problem. At the moment my mouse is more sensitive than my tablet, which is a sad state of affairs to be in.

Hmm, perhaps I should just upload in black & white for a while until my Tablet problems are sorted out. I have 3 more pages inked. I dunno. I don’t like doing half a job.

Pg 71: Intimidation Check

This week in Epic Fail: Tinuvielle threatens Amuletts with mime (now that is scary).

Creator’s Commentary: Before you ask, yes, Tinuvielle actually did this during a D&D game. It wasn’t just the one time either. It was actually pretty intimidating.

Is it me or does the sky look like a lava pit from hell? It’s supposed to be a sunset. Think I should tone it down?

Pg 68: Crazy Witch

This week in Epic Fail: Tinuvielle reassures Dirk that Amuletts will leave him alone.

Creator’s Commentary: It that an end to it? Will Amuletts stop trying to wind up Dirk?

Pg 67: Fun

This week in Epic Fail: Tinuvielle continues to cast spells on Amuletts.

Creator’s Commentary: More infighting between characters. Amuletts cannot get the better of Tinuvielle it seems!

I’m just going to do a shout out for Liliy who makes Wiglaf & Mordred who is bidding up a storm on my Project Wonderful adbox right now! Thanks, it’s appreciated. I love reading W&M, it’s totally hilarious.

In other news I’m doing NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writers Month). Blogged about it earlier. I’m living up to all your expectations and kinda sucking but I’m still going. Not sure I’m hit 50,000 words by the end of the month but I’ll have more stuff written than I would otherwise, right?

Pg 66: Tumbling

This week in Epic Fail: Amuletts back-flips off the back of her Gryphon and executes a perfect landing, despite Tinuvielle’s Slippery spell. However Tinuvielle follows up by casting a Clumsy spell on Amuletts which makes her fall over.

Creator’s Commentary: It’s fun having Amuletts on the receiving end for once! This is almost a Silent Page – I’m very pleased with the visuals on this one. You understand what is happening even if you can’t read the text.

Tumbing is a Non-Weapon Proficiency in 2nd Edition D&D which is quite a handy one for dexterous characters, making them harder to hit and moving them out of combat quickly. Of course it’s actually part of Gymnastics and if you’ve never seen it check out this video. I will look forward to putting it in the comic again because it’s so amazing and beautiful!

By the way I have created a new YouTube Channel called EpicFailComic and you can see me working on this page there. I may be doing some more live drawing of comic pages soon.
