Have I sufficiently gotten you all to wonder whether or not Tenebrae is a good guy or a bad guy yet? Do you even care? Actually, more importantly, DO I EVEN CARE… ? 0_0

Well, a little bit. It is my comic after all. It would be kind of bad if I didn’t care at all, NOW WOULDN’T IT?

That said, I’ve only really got one thing of actual pertinence to say this week, and that’s the fact that I’m probably going to post the Christmas drawing on Friday, and the only thing stopping me from doing so would be if I just flat out ignored the sticky note I have on my desktop reminding me to do so (which, considering my track record with paying attention to those damn notes, still has a chance of failing… :^/ ) Anyways, that’s all, so until then I’ll just see you next comic.

My brain is completely shot as of the moment I’m writing this post, so this is probably going to be quick… PROBABLY…

The next segment with Angel I have planned I actually haven’t finished writing yet, but given the fact that it’s not going up until the new year, I’m thinking that’s probably acceptable at the moment. I have about a page done for it already, so it’s not like I haven’t started working on it yet… I just know I have a really bad habit when it comes to procrastinating writing comics…

Also, the Christmas season is upon us, and I couldn’t give less of a crap at this moment… My family is insistent on actually buying something for me this year, and I for the life of me, cannot think of a single thing to ask for that I wouldn’t just rather buy for myself, except maybe some new pants…. Because I kinda need new pants and I don’t feel like going out and buying some, but that’s about it…

I have thought about maybe asking for a copy of Xenoblade Chronicles 2, because I hear game journalists can’t stop complaining about the “gratuitous fanservice” in the game that I know for a fact they’re blowing outta proportion and acting like ISN’T going to be a massive selling point for weebs like me (because as you all can probably guess at this point, I have no problem with big anime boobies)…. I know for a fact that this isn’t the first time they’ve bitched about something like this before, and it’s not going to be the last, so I’ve considered getting it just to spite them and show them that “yes this kind of s**t sells”. Aside from that, I do know that it’s actually a decent game based on what everyone else is saying about it. I just have to decide whether or not I have the patient for another really long JRPG at the moment. If anyone actually reads these posts, and knows if the game is worth getting, let me know…

Then finally, in the spirit of Christmas, of which I just said I give zero craps about, I decided to do a Christmas themed drawing because why not just contradict myself? It’s actually already finished, but I’m gonna hold of on showing it until a little bit closer to the 25th because reasons… And I guess those reasons are that I don’t want to seem too tacky posting it early…? Sure, let’s go with that…

Okay, so that wasn’t as short as I thought it was going to be… But it’s not like I’ve never wrote MORE CRAP than I initially intended before… Anywho, I’m done for now, so I’ll just see you next comic.

“Baking some clams” is a euphemism I feel you don’t hear too much these days.

Anyways, my internet for the most part has actually been holding out the past week, which I say is a good sign. Just goes to show, if you keep bitching at your ISP literally almost every single day over the course of like 3 weeks to come send people over to your house who ACTUALLY know what they’re doing to fix your internet… They’ll EVENTUALLY actually do it. Would’ve been nice if the first like, 8 techs Cox sent to our house actually knew what they were doing, but oh well, that’s not the universe I apparently live in.

Aside from that, not much else to say this week. Still debating over whether or not I actually want to get on Twitter or not, but that’s pretty much all at this point. That all being said, I’ll see you next comic.

…Finally back to doing the one off updates again… It only took like, what? 3 f***ing months…?

Anywho, things have definitely been happening since my last update. Firstly, my internet is still being a roaring dumpster fire with it often cutting out at the times of day I like to actually use it. So that’s always fun to deal with… (And by fun, I mean I despise Cox and everything they stand for as an ISP)

…I suppose having 2 more people move back in the house who use the internet just as much as I do hasn’t been helping. Yep, my brother and his husband (yes, my brother is what I have had Alex refer to in the past as “somekind of a gay”. I didn’t really mention it in earlier posts because I didn’t really know if it was my place or not to tell random strangers about, but f**k it! He’s been married for something like 2 and a half years at this point and has been pretty open about it already, so I can safely assume neither of them are really keeping it a secret from strangers at this point)… those two have moved back in with me and my mom due to financial reasons (Because we’re all f***ing broke! You know, thinking about it…. maybe THAT’S the thing I shouldn’t be blurting out to strangers on the internet, but oh well…). Thankfully, I actually get along with my brother and my brother-in-law, so it’s not all bad for me. I just wish the internet didn’t start tanking as soon as they moved in… (To be fair to them, it did actually start acting up about 2 days before they moved in, but hey, I often like to subscribe to paranoid conspiracy theories, so: THE GAYS ARE SIPHONING OFF MY INTERNET! HIDE YOUR FROGS, OR THEY MIGHT TURN GAY TOO!)

In slightly less important news, I managed to destroy my office chair simply by sitting in it over the course of 4 years. The metal brace that attached the support column and wheels to the actual chair managed to actually WARP enough to the point that there’s an actual cut in the metal now, which has caused the chair to permanently tilt to the back-right. This has taught me a very valuable lesson: I need to stop leaning back in my chair all of the f***ing time… Up until the point it started to perma-tilt, I was having back problems from using that chair. I now understand why: no actual back support. So let this be a lesson to you kids: don’t constantly lean back in your chair, because you apparently will destroy it eventually. (I guess slouching to try to get a good angle to draw my comic wasn’t such a good idea…)

And finally, in actually possibly pertinent news: I’ve been thinking about going on to Twitter to possibly use as another platform to promote the comic because I figured, more people check their Twitter than they check their WordPress… I haven’t actually made the account yet, but if I do, there’ll definitely be links on the blog to it if any of you were actually interested in following me. (If I actually do decide to get on it that is. With the internet at my house being as bad as it is has certainly made me question whether or not that is such a good idea at the time… Well, that and the fact that I know Twitter isn’t the best place for people to just meme it up and s**tpost, which is something I would totally do on Twitter…)

Anyways, I’m done rambling on. So until then, I’ll see you next comic.

Art Post – Happy Halloween 2017

Halloween Judith

“Happy Halloween darlings… I hope you don’t end up finding all of the horrors of the night to be too… stimulating… HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!”

*cough cough*

Anyways, I decided to do another drawing for Halloween this year because I figured, eh, why the f**k not? Night Fox is a comic about ghosts and “spoops” after all. This year, I decided to do Judith, considering I just introduced her, and I figured “Hey. She just did some pretty creepy stuff in the comic… Bet I could make her look pretty creepy for a Halloween drawing as well because I’m literally too lazy to come up with any other ideas for one at this point…”

As you can see, I’ve been trying out doing a little bit more detailed shading than I usually do. I’m not 100% satisfied with how it turned out to be perfectly honest. I kinda think it doesn’t quite mesh too well with my kind of cartoony art style, so I’m not entirely sure if that’s going to be a regular thing for me when it comes to my art in the future. Though, I will say, I do think her hair turned out ab-SO-lutely fabulously in my opinion, if I had to pick which part of the picture I liked the best.

I also tried to experiment with different poses, which if you’ve seen me draw ANYTHING LATELY, you know is something I almost never do. Decided to do a pose with her sitting, looking down upon you with her spear drawn, with a demented, almost perverted grin on her face, ready to skewer you should she feel the urge… Coincidentally, that is not the same design for the spear I gave her in the comic. I know, being inconsistent like that is pretty bad, but I have a bad habit of going for the first design that pops into my head when it comes to minor things like that and then changing it later on down the line for something far less retarded. This is another one of those cases, as I like this spear design better…

So yeah, to summarize, basically experimenting with new angles and poses… So, if the proportions of anything look a little off, it’s probably because I have next to no experience drawing characters like this. In situations like that, I would normally track down a reference to use on Google, but, this was not exactly an easy pose to find a reference for, so I kind of had to make do with some guessing. While not perfect, it definitely could have turned out worse… Especially considering I did this whole thing with a mouse, with no pencil sketch to start me off. And if you’ve ever used a mouse for artwork before, you know how “unsuited” for the job they can get…

But that’s enough of me picking apart my own art. I hope those of you who are still of the right age enjoy your night of trick-or-treating, while the rest of you enjoy the discount pricing for Halloween candy the next day. At any rate, the next comic is on schedule for tomorrow as usual, so until then, I’ll see you next comic.

Well Relnia didn’t last long… I wouldn’t have even added her to the comic were it not for the fact that I really wanted to incorporate the phrase “work the shaft” in while someone was being impaled through the mouth with a spear, and I was already super set on how Judith was going to be killing Char and Greever. Also, I resisted the urge to be super edgy and call Judith’s memory siphoning spell Mind Rape even though that’s like literally what’s she is doing to Char… You know, because until this point, NOTHING in this comic was edgy or try hard AT ALL… Especially the telepathic head explosion that just happened on the proceeding page. Absolutely nothing edgy about that… 😛

Anywho, another multi-pager starting next week. This time, we’re going to be taking a look at what Angel has been doing on her assignment. You know, because people cared about that, and this comic in general… Like I said earlier, it’s not going to be too long of a comic, so we should be able to keep the story moving quicker. And FYI, more expositional comics in the coming weeks, so get ready for S**T TONS OF TALKING! Because that TOTALLY makes for a good comic series…

Anyways, I’m done spouting words, so I’ll just see you next comic.
