Pg 86: Oh Look! A Distraction!

This week in Epic Fail: Tinuvielle distracts Yoru from his awkward questions by (dramatically) explaining interrupting Martin’s story was bad manners. With a rapt audience Martin continues the fiery tale of his adventures with demons.

Webcomic Creator’s Commentary: 

I love Tinuvielle’s hammy acting, the throwing up her arm and the “Woe! Woe!” I hope you found it as funny as I did. I’m nearly finished with the Elven Pussy now. Nearly.

Poor Martin does have a tendency to do what he’s told without thinking it through. In other news: Fire burns. Yes I did reference Labyrinth in the comic, not so much a tribute to the late David Bowie so much as because it’s my favourite movie so I possibly reference it too much.  This joke may have been inspired by the Amanda Palmer Labyrinth with Sock Puppets version though.

You know that red thing the characters are standing on in panels 5 and 7? That is a platform painted with a symbol of chaos and you only keep seeing a fraction of it.  I seem to keep redrawing the entire thing because I’m a dumb, dumb artist who wants it to be accurate and like making life hard on myself. Grr.

What I’m not too happy about is that big gap on the left og panel 7 actually. I think maybe you should see the second demon or some of the other adventurers standing there. Hmm, editing may occur.

Sorry I’ve not been playing Dungeons & Dragons so much lately as the One Night Ultimate Werewolf card game and it’s game expansion Daybreak. We just intend to play a few hands then get to the D&D but end up playing Werewolf the entire evening *guilty face*. It’s true.

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 78: At least he’s not asking about the birds & bees

This week in Epic Fail: Yoru has lots of questions about Gods, the afterlife, good and evil. Tinuvielle learns it’s hard to be a parent, particularly to a demon!

Creator’s Commentary:I’m so glad to get a new page up. Slow and steady…

I’ve started teaching private art classes in Oxford, which are going great.  My students tell me they are enjoying them immensely and learning ‘an incredible amount.’ YAY! We’ve just finished a six week drawing course and are moving on to acrylic painting.

I’m feeling a little jet-lagged after the clocks changed for the autumn ‘Fall Back.’ Sleep schedule all out of whack. Anyone else feel this way?

BONUS 07: Summer Special 2013

Here it is – the 2013 summer special with all the Epic Fail characters in their swimsuits. This was supposed to go up on the 1st but a combination of migraine and going overboard on the shading delayed it until now.

This is part of the United Webcomics Summer Special where you can go and see many webcomics characters sporting their swimwear. Check it out (you can even see the above image a little larger).

So… would anyone like this as a wallpaper? I will send one to donations of $1 or more. I could use the money as I’m having to move house again!

Look! I’m in a Card Game!

It’s arrived! I pre-ordered the WAGON Webcomic Battle ‘Geek Deck’ and it’s finally here with six cards illustrated by yours truly. They’re great cards with cool powers that trow a little chaos into the game 😉

The Geek Deck is themed around the power of the Geek, which is to combine the forces of deceptively weak-looking characters and use unothodox strategy to overcome seemingly unbeatable opponents. Truly in this dawn of a new begining, the Geek shall inherit the Earth.

The Geek Deck includes cards from the webcomics:

I’m really proud to share a project with such an amazing group of creators!
