Comic Post #032: There’s More to Life Than Just Success

Comic 032A

That feeling you get when you have none of those things she mentioned in addition to having no friends… But I’m not going to bore you guys with what I’ve got going on in my life at the moment (because nothing is…). Since I don’t have any news, I guess I’ll see you next comic.


Art Post – Sword of Excallius Character Bio #4

You know what? My computer may have screwed up the other character bio I was trying to post… But that doesn’t mean I can’t post a bio for another character. (Because after all, I’ve been spending a lot of time “semi-coloring” in the drawings I’ve got scanned onto my computer… At this point I should actually start showing them…) Without further ado, here is the fourth bio for Sword of Excallius (just 3 months late…).

Galgen Semi-Color

Name: Galgen Todmeister

Age: 35

Camilla’s original 100th master. A tall, intimidating, power hungry sociopath, with the personality to match. Of course, that personality is what drove him to lose Camilla in the first place, as, after he used Camilla to stab Jack after massacring a bunch of people Camilla didn’t want to kill, she used that as an opportunity to jump ship and get a new master. Of course, when he was her master, he always kept her in her sword form at all times, seeing her as nothing more than a weapon, constantly ignoring her pleas to stop slaughtering innocent people in order to make her more powerful. When Camilla first made the jump to Jack, she ended up fended Galgen off by cutting off his right hand so that he wouldn’t be able to use her anymore. Galgen did not take that little bit of “insubordination” too well. He ended up tracking down a replacement hand called the Claw of Mordred, which is as evil and twisted as it looks and sounds, and grafted it to his body, giving him access to powerful dark magic. Of course, a man as maniacal as Galgen doesn’t just stop there on their quest for power. He also hunted down another powerful magic weapon, the Blade of Felgore, a weapon very similar in nature to Camilla (SPOILER: It’s actually another person who can transform into a sword as well), and uses the two in tandem to try to kill Jack and reclaim Camilla again. Because hey, if you already have one magical, all powerful sword, who’s to say you can’t have two?

And there we have it: our first villain bio! WOOOH! I’m going to do my best to try to keep posting bios on a regular basis, considering I’ve done enough art for most of the characters by now (though ironically, the character who would make logical sense to do next, the human form of the Blade of Felgore, I haven’t actually drawn in their human form yet…). So, basically, you guys can probably expect a little bit more than a single post a week… Probably… And before you go laughing at this guy’s last name, I’ll have you know that it’s actually supposed to mean “death master” in German (…at least that’s what Google translate tells me…). At any rate, I don’t have much else to say outside of the bio, so I’ll see you next post.

Comic Post #031: A Story of Another Time

Comic 031A

For those who are wondering just what Kitsiyuna is talking about in this comic: it’s a reference to the first draft I had for Night Fox’s story before I decided to make the story about NOTHING IN PARTICULAR. Given the fact that Alex is asking Kitsiyuna to basically retell this story to him later, I think you guys can tell I haven’t completely dropped that particular story. Now, as to when I’m going to tell it: NO FREAKING CLUE. I have another “mini-arc” planned in the near future, and I’m not sure how long that one is going to take (and because it’s going to be introducing some characters I’ve been meaning to introduce in the comic proper for MONTHS, I’m not switching the order I’m going to be posting them). Still, exciting stuff… EVENTUALLY!

In other news, my school work is starting to actually compete with my designated comic time, so I might start posting updates a little bit later than usual… Just an FYI. And with that, I’ll see you next comic.

Comic Post #030: How Heartwarming or Something

Comic 030A

And now a comic where my main focus is to be touching… GOD THESE TONAL SHIFTS ARE WEIRD AREN’T THEY!? If you don’t think so, then what I have to say in the post with this comic might:

So, I have a bit of a story to go with this. It has nothing to do with the comic itself, it has something to do with something else I was GOING to post before this comic… and it is something I’m FUCKING pissed off about. That’s right. I just said fuck without censoring it with cutesy asterisks. BECAUSE THAT’S HOW FUCKING PISSED OFF I AM. Basically, I was going to be posting another character bio, something I haven’t done in 3 months. The character I was going to post had a lot of mythological stuff that went into their design and character that I decided to explain and elaborate on. I even linked to some external sites (mostly Wikipedia like always) to provide more information on said myths. Here’s the thing, while I was typing all of this stuff up in the post, I was looking up all the proper links and stuff in separate tabs while still keeping the draft open. Then my PIECE OF FUCKING SHIT COMPUTER THAT I WANT TO GAIN SENTIENCE ONLY SO I CAN INSTILL THE FEAR OF DEATH INTO IT decided the tab had been inactive for too long and refreshed it. So all of that typing I did for the bio was gone, just fucking like that. I was doing that for over an hour, and apparently it didn’t register ANY OF THE TIMES I TOLD IT TO FUCKING SAVE THE DRAFT. So basically, my computer decided to make that hour of my life a complete waste of time. MY FUCKING COMPUTER ESSENTIALLY ROBBED ME OF OVER AN HOUR OF MY LIFE THAT IT SHOULDN’T HAVE BEEN ABLE TO. So yeah. I have to type it all up again. One problem, I don’t remember ANY of what I had typed up, and I really don’t feel like spending another hour trying to figure out what I typed up again.

To summarize all of that: I had another post planned for this week that I had to give up on because my computer is A COMPLETE AND TOTAL FUCKING BASTARD THAT I HOPE ROTS IN HELL AS SOON AS I CAN GET A SUITABLE REPLACEMENT FOR IT… and if I ever feel up to actually posting it again, it’s probably going to be an abridged version of the original post… So yeah. I am kind of EXTREMELY annoyed right now, and I want you guys to know it. At any rate, see you guys next comic… provided my fucking computer doesn’t fuck it up…

Comic Post #029: …Lead to Nightmares

Comic 029A

It’s kind of funny how when I think I’m not going to have enough time to get something done, I immediately focus on getting it done and finish it well before the deadline. Anyway, here’s my largest comic yet, and boy, does it not match the tone of the rest of them… Well, it had to happen eventually… I will say, getting blood to actually look all gruesome and stuff is A HUGE PAIN IN THE ASS… Also, ACTUAL ATTEMPTS AT BACKGROUNDS! (For like 2/3 of the panels…)

At any rate, I don’t have much else to report, so I’ll see you next comic.
