Some Really Exciting News (Comic Strip Collab-Finding my own way)

I have some really exciting news to share with you guys. A short while ago, Anjani over at My Utopia asked me to Collab on a comic strip and turn one of their stories into a comic (Anjani stories are really good, I would highly recommend checking them out). An art type Collab is something I’ve been dying to do for a while now, so I was thrilled when Anjani asked me.
Both of us have been working really hard creating character designs for the comic strip and Anjani had the great idea of taking a moment to tell you guys all about it and introduce the characters, that will appear in this comic strip. Anyway, I’ll let Anjani tell you.

My Utopia

Well if you are following me for a long time you can see that I am uploading stories which are written by me. At first I thought of making a manga but I am very bad at drawings ( Well I am practicing it though ) even though there are no pics I tried to write them like manga ( I hope you get it ). So I am following a blog called thethingsiveseen which is run by this amazing person Kelly who writes amazing stuff. You should definitely check it out.

So Kelly even does comic strips in her blog and I really like them, so I thought why not I ask her to do comic strips for my story and guess what she agreed to it and I felt so happy for it Thank you so much Kelly and we decided to turn Finding my own way which…

Cold, Lost and Left with Sal (Comic Strip Chapter 5)

In chapter 4, I made a bit of a silly mistake in one of the speech bubbles. Apologies for that. It was one those times my dyslexia accidentally shone through and I mixed up the words “becomes” and “belongs”.
I know, I know. How the fudge does one mix up those two words, they’re nothing alike? Well, it’s because somewhere in my brain the wires crossed and under the pressure of being asked to produce the spelling of the word “belongs”, my brain farted. Now dazed by the power of the brain fart, my brain frantically searched through the archive of words beginning with “be”. Fatigued it desperately reached for the word it recognised as “belongs” (it wasn’t. It was really “becomes”) and threw this word to the eyes and hand writing the dialogue. All happening in a matter of milliseconds, the eyes and the hand went unaware of the brain’s silly error.

The most embarrassing thing about this is, I proof read everything at least 3-4 times to avoid stupid mistakes like this and I still managed to not spot it. It literally took some kind-hearted soul to point it out, for me to realise this mistake.
Long story short, I’ve fixed the silly mistake now and I apologies again, if this impacted your enjoyment of Chapter 4 in any way.

Hope you enjoy Chapter 5.

Cold, Lost and Left with Sal (Comic Strip Chapter 4)

From seeing people go crazy over the smallest things the comment section of YouTube videos, I feel like I should put a warning before this chapter. Just in case someone gets offended at some very mild suggestiveness (emphasis on the word mild) and tries to scream at me in the comments. So here it is:

Warning: This chapter contains some very, very mild suggestiveness and the slightest show of skin (anime legs to be precise). If you are of an extremely sensitive nature and/or easily offended, you may want to refrain from reading this chapter. This comic strip is for entertainment purposes and not intended to offend.

Hopefully you’ve taken the body pillow in good humour and don’t want to verbally assault me in the comments (YouTube is a scary place. I once seen some poor wee guy get hounded by a bunch of social thugs, for having a cutout of his waifu in the background of his videos. It was so brutal).

Hope you’re enjoying this comic strip and as always, Thanks for reading.

Cold, Lost and Left with Sal (Comic Strip Chapter 3)

This chapter is a little more serious than the last 2 chapters. I figured, if I’m going to make this a regular part of this blog. I should do a little backstory, to how Luke and Sal ended up together and should give the story a little more direction. I’ve still tried to add a little humour to the chapter. Hope you enjoy.

Hope it wasn’t too depressing and that you still had fun reading it.

Drawing this comic strip digitally definitely seems like the way to go. I’m so much happier with how chapter 2 turned out. Still not sure whether I want to make this a regular thing, though.

Anyway, Thanks for reading and hope you enjoy the next chapter.

So, I Made A Comic Strip

(Apologies for the lateness of this post, I was experiencing some technical difficulties, impairing my ability to post).

I’ve decided to take the plunge and try out the first of my ideas for this blog.

That’s right, I’ve created a little comic strip. It’s called Cold, Lost and Left with Sal, but I don’t want to ramble on, so I’ll explain how the comic strip is read, set the scene and leave you to enjoy it.

It reads left to right (Sorry if that’s disappointing, my brain would have exploded, if I tried to write/draw it like a manga). To make it easier to read, I’ve used block capital but in case you can’t read my rubbish handwriting, I’ve also put the dialogue below each page. Hope you enjoy.

Cold, Lost and Left with Sal
After a mysterious event, nearly all humans disappeared from the face of the earth. Now seemingly the only two people left on earth. Our main characters, the sensitive Luke and the peculiar Sal, must roam the earth trying to survive.

Chapter-1: All that’s left

thumbnail_20180423_094523Page 1:
Sal (the character wearing the crown): Thanks for waiting Luke,

Sal: I…

Sal: Here…. You’re going to catch a cold.

Sal: We don’t know what exactly happened, that day.

thumbnail_20180423_115833Page 2:
Sal: There’s still hope of finding them.

Sal: Come on. We better get moving.
I have good news

Sal: The town’s only about 2 miles away. If we make it before night fall, we can sleep inside for once.

Luke (the spiky haired character): Sweet.
Hmm… wait. Sal, won’t you get cold without your blanket?

Sal: It’s okay, I’ll find another. If I get cold before then, I’ll just cuddle a stray dog or something.

Luke: Hehe… Gross

Sal:  If I get ticks, I promise to share.

Luke: You could always cuddle me!

Sal: No chance. I’d rather take me chances with the dog.

 

So, that was my first attempt at creating a comic strip. Hope you could read everything okay. Being dyslexic and having dyspraxia, spelling, grammar and handwriting are my weak points. So, apologies if you couldn’t read the comic strip for any of those reasons. The good news is, I’ve drawn the next chapter digitally and it looks hell of a lot better.

This has been one of those posts I’ve been uncertain about (so far out of my comfort zone and the technical difficulties didn’t help). But it was really fun to make, so I plan on making at least a few more chapters and we’ll decide from there, whether to keep this as a regular thing or not.

Thanks for reading. I’m off now to attempt to bring you the second chapter of this comic strip.
