Last year I missed a couple of Cameos so I thought I’d take this opportunity to play catch-up and show that I appreciate them.
First up Tinuvielle appeared in LOVEFEAST, hanging out in the Institute for Training in the Arts of Death and cheering on ‘delicious conflict.’ Well well, isn’t she a dark horse?
LOVEFEAST is a webcomic by Senshuu about former mortals training to become Shinigami: Gods of Death! The characters are learning to cope with their extraordinary new powers and responsibilities whilst struggling to retain their humanity. They are just starting their journey and it’s sure to be an interesting ride! LOVEFEAST is an adult comic and has adult themes delivered with a smidgen of dry humour. Interesting and worth checking out.
Dungeon Legacy by George Ward (aka Dungeon Warden) is, like Epic Fail, is based on Dungeons and Dragons and has been running for, oh, simply ages. It’s a comic I enjoy and have read almost all of it. Dungeon Legacy actually gets on with the story instead of telling stupid jokes! There’s a lesson in there somewhere…
Thanks to everyone in the wonderful webcomics community who have supported Epic Fail and done such great Fan Art and Cameos. It really made my first year a good one. That’s right – Epic Fail is one year old tomorrow! Granted I haven’t updated every week of that year… but I started on January 9th and it’s almost January 9th again. Hurrah!
The ‘new’ crowd scene for page 11 with the webcomic cameos is coming along slowly- but it’s coming along! Thankyou for being so patient. I thought I’d give you a small reward by posting a picture of the work in progress.
As you can see it still has a long way to go with plenty more characters to add and coloring on top, but I hope you like what you see so far and recognise some of the characters. I feel so priviledged at being allowed to draw them I am taking extra special care! Everyone who wanted a cameo in this scene will get one.
With one this or another – namely a migraine and internet troubles – the cameos for page 11 did not get done. These things happen sometime. I’m still working on it though, and so far it looks great! I won’t make the mistake of promising when it’ll be up though, because so far whenever I have fate has conspired against me. I’ll be twittering loudly and posting prominantly when it’s done so you won’t miss it.
Epic Fail has had a really lovely, positive review at The Soulless Machine, a review blog covering short stories and other stuff. It’s a good place for discovering new literature that’s somewhat outside the mainstream, and is very supportive of small press and self-publishers. You can read their review of Epic Fail here. I hardly need add that I’m chuffed as ninepence.
In other news, I’ve registered the domain name www.comicofepicfail.com which I think is more memorable and easier to pass on to people verbally. I tried to get epicfail.com by preorder but, alas, did not succeed. I fear it is just too popular a term for me to stand a chance.
I’m still looking for webcomic cameos to appear in a crowd scene on page 11. I’m mainly looking for human characters since these are the dominant race in my world, but I will accept a few from other races. The sooner you let me know that you would like your characters included the more likely it is they will be. I will also be making a bigger version of the scene as a free wallpaper.
