want that kind of love, and stayed with her adventurer who loved her very much and did a happy dance of victory that she didn't leave. They went on their merry way on adventures and did embarrassing things in public and handed out hats to strangers. They fought as much as they laughed, but they never left each other. The end.
I like this story. Thank you, dear anon, for this lovely heartwarming story. Aww.. this was sweet.
Maybe it’d be nice to do comics of a bunch of little stories like these, they’d be ten or so page things, short and sweet. Because I really like the one about the lion, and think that would be very fun to work on, and this one too I really would enjoy doing.. I can already imagine character designs for this one, ah!
Once upon a time there was a lonely girl with long spindly limbs and a crooked heart who wanted to be loved. One day an adventurer just as lonely as her came along and they accidentally became friends and went off on adventures. They fought and laughed and cried and did friendly friend-y things. Then the girl met a boy who fell in love with her, and wanted to date and get married and have a child and settle down together and do married people things. But the girl discovered she did not want
Aw… This sounds both good and sad.. And then- A CLIFFHANGER!!!!
One of Aesop's fables is about a lion who wanted to marry a young woman, but his teeth and claws made her parents afraid that he'd accidentally hurt her. They agreed to let him marry her if he had his teeth and claws removed, which he did. But when he returned to them to ask again they turned him away because he no longer posed any kind of threat, and they could safely refuse him. I think the story is called 'The Lion in Love', it's a favorite of mine uwu
how do you come up with your stories/character designs?
With character designs, I think a lot of it is just sketching, I like to play with the shapes of things and sometimes I get attached to them and start developing a character around it! Hm. Many of my characters are based off of objects or ideas I want to personify. Julian and the story/world he lives in is all based off of the color wheel, with each character’s personality being a color and their interactions based on how their ‘color’ goes with others on the color wheel. Like Julian is orange, so his personality and point of view is orange, and his best friend’s personality is a bluish color, orange’s complement. And the story for that I came up with while killing the tiny bugs that creep into houses and thinking of how unfair it was, and what they would do if they could fight back. And for Clyde, I’m not too sure how I got to designing that.. I think it may have also been influenced by color palettes! But the story for that is… well. I guess a kind of catharsis kind of thing. Like in the story Clyde is driven by the idea of going back home, living his life as he wants. And with me, I moved to a place where I really don’t want to be when I was a lot younger and I’ve always wanted to go back.. so running away in a story was a better choice than doing so in real life.. Uh. The designs and some of the scenery are based off of people and places I knew when I lived there and where I currently live as well. I guess, the ideas for these really come from anywhere. Personal life and things that interest me.. I hope that helps? edit- Also, I’ve found it really helps to draw and know about a lot of things, the more you’re familiar with the more you have to draw in if ever you need it. Like if all you know is birds, it’ll be harder to branch out into other things that you don’t know of, and therefor you’ll have less of a variety of ideas because of the narrow amount of resources. The more you’re comfortable with the better.
Are you going to finish Blue? Also, didn't you have a comic with like wolves? or maybe it was different animals. I don't remeeeeeeember but it was cool and now I can't find it. I don't know your other two characters KingC mentioned but... yeah... hi
Hi! Yeah, I’m hoping to finish Blue sometime, but I realized that that’s something that I have to take a step back from right now.. I had started it kind of haphazardly, and then realized that there was so much more that I wanted to do with the story that the fragile, un-thought-out beginning couldn’t hold. And I don’t think I can write for that at the moment, the feeling for it just doesn’t really ring true to me right now! Ah, does that make sense? It’s kind of weird.. And yes, I did have one with wolves, haha! It’s still on dA I think.. But with that one I, once again, hadn’t thought it out all the way, and also, when I was working on it I found it really wasn’t something I wanted to do. At the time I was really influenced by the art of other ‘wolf artists’, all digital coloring and fancy markings and stiff attention to correct anatomy.. and I realized that I hated it, I was just doing the same old thing they were, and that’s not me.
Will we ever see the rest of the comic with Clyde?
Yup! Actually, that’s what I’ve been trying to work on lately! But I’m really trying to plan this out, because with Blue, and before that, West, I just kind of jumped into things without really having a plan or structure to the story, and so they crumbled very easily. So I’m hoping to get everything pretty well sketched out before I try starting on it, because I really don’t want this one to fall through from lack of planning like the others. And I think you saw the really short sketchy version from a while back, right? The story actually was meant to expand, like that was only the prologue.
