Pg 69: Epic Fail

This week in Epic Fail: Clodin explains how, if this was an epic, it would be a failure.

Creator’s Commentary: How many jokes can the characters make about the comic itself without breaking the forth wall?

Btw I sorta ‘failed’ NaNoWriMo. I wussed out. Okay I had RSI from typing and was nervous about continuing because I’m sorta paranoid about my hands. I want to be able to use them for a long time so did not want to risk injuring them further. If I’d really wanted to push on I probably could have but I think it would have been a bad idea. I mean, I’ll still try to finish my story but not at such a break-neck pace!

GUEST STRIP: Gun versus Dragon

This week in Epic Fail: Tinuvielle and Jake (the Evil Hare) plan to test whether guns blow Dragons away, but they have a back-up plan if it doesn’t work.

Creator’s Commentary: Poor Clodin! Sam Medina of Jake The Evil Hare seems to have it in for him!

Besides Jake the Evil Hare Sam Medina also makes a fantasy webcomic called Darkfell which is really good, and you should check it out. On a related note he has recently launched a Novel called Katrina the Dragon Slayer which I am reading at the moment and enjoying immensely.

Sam has drawn Epic Fail a Guest Strip before and here’s a link to it if you haven’t seen it.

Clodin fells a Giant

Clodin fells a Giant via his favoured technique: Kneecap, kneecap, back of the head. How else could a Dwarf take down something so big?
This is the second piece of Epic Fail character art for the Wagon Webcomic Battle cardgame.

Pg 61: Family Values

This week in Epic Fail: Clodin Learns that Amuletts has sold Andy Roid.

Creator’s Commentary: Busy scene this one. I thought it would be a real pain drawing Amuletts’ Gryphon, the horses and everything but it was really fun! (As a child I was obsessed with horses and drew almost nothing else so I suppose I shouldn’t be surprised it comes back easily).

I know it may seem kind of weird that I included Andy in the story at all given he was going to disappear so quickly, but there were a few reasons why. 1) I try not to stray too far from the events that happened in gaming reality; 2) He helps highlight Amuletts’ mercenary nature; 3) If I ever go back and cover the adventure before this one I want the continuity to be straight (it’s not totally beyond the realms of possibility that I would. It was a good adventure); 4) Other characters will come and go too. Might as well start as I mean to go on.

Sunday Sketch #13 – My Little Pony Clodin

My Little Pony Clodin Brony MLP FiM Fanart
This Sunday Sketch is of Clodin as a My Little Pony. Clodin is a Dwarf so I decided to make him a shetland pony – and a shaggy one at that so I could get his beard in without it looking too weird. He actually turned out pretty cute. His Cutie Mark is a rather obvious one, it’s a clod (or sod) or earth.

I notice that the male ponys (bronys) where there show up in the cartoon (pretty rarely) are less stylistically rigid than the females.
