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 85: Be Careful What You Wish For

This week in Epic Fail:

Tinuvielle explains to Yoru how wishes work. Now he understands exactly what to do should he ever come across one. Tiuvielle feels so… ambivalent.

Creator’s Commentary: 

Hmm is the the opportunity to tell all my stories about cursed wishes in D&D? Okay then! Well one time the player character knew their wish was cursed so they tried to wish for something harmless so they wished for a banana… so naturally a giant stone banana fell out of the sky Monty Python style and crushed them to death. Another was from a Deck of Many Thing and not Cursed per se but as Tinuvielle would say ‘untrustworthy.’ The wish was for a good and righteous bastard sword which appeared in front of the warrior wishing for it… right along with it’s owner! Oh and then there was the mage who just messed up their wish to resurrect a dead character by saying “I wish this companion (PC’s named) to live as long as there is breath in my body” which brought that character back to life but meant that if the mage died, they did too.

What about you? Any good Wish stories?

Pg 83: Parental Guidance

This Week in Epic Fail: Martin continues his story with parental guidance from Tinuvielle.

Creator’s Commentary: You can find an uncensored version of this page here.

I’m a real fan of the unreliable narrator. Not only does it allow for great comedy it also allows me to tell Dungeons and Dragons stories without ‘spoiling’ the scenario for anyone. Sure, you may find some things familiar but they aren’t going to help your characters against those great big Demons!

Incidentally I do try to keep the comic PG because whilst I personally don’t have a problem with nudity I respect that others do.

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?

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 73: Hot Elf on Elf

This week in Epic Fail: She’s not saying that she did, but Amuletts might have set fire to Tinuvielle’s bed to stop her from learning new spells.

Creator’s Commentary: I like the visual humour in this one a lot. The dialogue is not particularly amusing but the visuals make me chuckle. At least I’m making myself laugh with these comics!

It’s interesting using the night-time color palette. Is it too dark or can you see everything okay?

Pg 72: Camp Fire

This week in Epic Fail: Tinuvielle’s bed mysteriously catches fire and Amuletts jumps to the rescue.

Creator’s Commentary: No it’s not an April fool – it really is a new update! My first night-time scene; I hope you like the color palette.

I’m very sorry for the long wait, I know it’s even worse than my usual ‘schedule.’ I have been having big problems with my Graphics Tablet & Windows 8 that just don’t seem to play nice together. I’ve already changed my tablet once, because the old one would not work at all, and would consider doing it again only I hear very good, expensive tablets are having similar troubles so I’m just not sure if it’s worth it – there’s a good chance it would not solve the problem. At the moment my mouse is more sensitive than my tablet, which is a sad state of affairs to be in.

Hmm, perhaps I should just upload in black & white for a while until my Tablet problems are sorted out. I have 3 more pages inked. I dunno. I don’t like doing half a job.

Pg 71: Intimidation Check

This week in Epic Fail: Tinuvielle threatens Amuletts with mime (now that is scary).

Creator’s Commentary: Before you ask, yes, Tinuvielle actually did this during a D&D game. It wasn’t just the one time either. It was actually pretty intimidating.

Is it me or does the sky look like a lava pit from hell? It’s supposed to be a sunset. Think I should tone it down?
