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 65: Fool me twice

This week in Epic Fail: Dirk realises Amuletts has been messing with him again and is unhappy. Tinuvielle decides she’s going to do something about it.

Creator’s Commentary: “Fool me once shame on you; Fool me twice shame on me.”

In D&D terms the ‘Slippery’ spell would be the ‘Grease’ spell (but I kinda want non-D&D players to understand what the spell does without reading a spell description, thus the renaming).

I know Amuletts elicits mixed feelings in fans: some love her some hate her. But I think you can all agree that she’s been asking for it for a while now.

Pg 64: Paladin Baiting

Today in Epic Fail: Amuletts plants a gem in Martin’s saddlebag then ‘steals’ it back making sure Dirk is watching her.

Creator’s Commentary: It is Dialogue Free Comics Day today and I took up the challenge to draw a comic telling the story with only pictures and no text. I hope you can follow it easily enough. There are lots of other webcomics doing the challeng as well today so make sure you check them out.

Yes Amuletts is engaging in the sport she likes to call ‘Paladin Baiting’ (quite possibly to distract for her mistake of flying off in the wrong direction on the previous page). I’ve been wanting to do this for a while. You can assume she does this ‘fake theft’ thing quite a bit in order to confuse Dirk.

Sunday Sketch #12 – My Little Pony Dirk

My Little Pony Dirk, MLP FiM Fanart
This Sunday Sketch is Dirk as a My Little Pony! Are you sensing a pattern yet? I’ve used the color of his (new) armor as the colour of his coat, and his Cutie mark is three ginko leaves, a Samurai symbol for loyalty. They look pretty.

Pg 55: Funny Joke!

This week in Epic Fail: Simone offers a substantial reward if the adventurers will accept the quest, but Dirk wants no reward, only to do good.

Creator’s Commentary: So it turns out Dirk has a great sense of humor and is really the joker in the pack!

I enjoyed doing the ‘friendly arm punch/shut-the-hell-up punch.’ I like my characters to be physical. I blame William Shatner and his touchy-feely acting in Star Trek.
