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.

Phineus: Magician for Hire Interview – Part 2

The Phineus: Magician for Hire interview with Barry Linck continues…

Click here if you’ve yet to read the Phinius: Magician for Hire Interview – Part 1.

Q6: Has being a Role-play Gamer helped you with creating stories for Phineus: Magician for Hire?

Yes, definitely. As well as my theater and film background.

Role-playing has gotten me to think as a character, act as a character would act. Being a DM, helped me create worlds, tell stories and create conflict in the stories.

In addition, all the monsters, magic, and Myth are right in there. I know most of the stuff in , say, the Monster Manual, is based on mythology. That said, the various gaming manuals itemize and describe the characters so succinctly that they sort of become my go to Beast-encyclopedia.

There have been stories I’ve done directly lifted from advesntures I’ve played with my game versions of Phin and Sara. I’ve even created a RPG around Phineus, with the help of my friend, John Burris. I’m even working on a second edition.

Phineus: Magician for Hire Interview – Part 1

Barry Linck creator of the webcomic Phineus: Magician for Hire takes the hot seat…

Q1: What is ‘Phineus: Magician For Hire’ about?

A1: Phineus is a fantasy/horror/sci fi comic, published on the web, about a paranormal investigations team.

Phin and Sara Beam make up the Beam Agency. The married couple solve all manners of supernatural problems, from vampires and werewolves, to evil garden gnomes, zombies, Elder Things and evil sentient eyeballs bent on world domination.

Phineus is a wizard. A magic Adept, who can cast spells and do magic. Sara is a gun-toting, butt-kicking archeologist and former superhero. Together they protect the world from all the things that go bump in the night.

Q2: Phineus and Sara may be married but they seem like they’re from different world – How did these two get together?

A2: Well, they are from very different worlds, but the same as well.

In the Phineus universe, certain people are what I call “Freak Magnets”. Certain people are genetically destined to run into the paranormal or supernatural. These two are Freak Magnets.

My Little Pony – Failure is Epic!

My Little Pony, Epic Fail in the style of Friendship is Magic, FiM
At the beginning of My Little Pony ‘Friendship is Magic‘ you always see a picture of all the characters which Twilight Sparkles has presumably sent to Princess Celestia. So I decided to make my own in the same style using the characters from Epic Fail.

I’ve posted all the characters individually so you can go back and look at them in more detail if you haven’t already and see what their Cutie Marks are.
