Ah, Viva Youth! (Fire Emblem Awakening Comic)
« on: June 29, 2013, 11:24:46 PM »
So...I can't exactly tell where I got this idea from. Still, after thinking about it for a while, while at the same time being horribly mangled at college, I started writing it out. However, I questioned myself whether to draw it as a comic, or to write it as a fanfic. Either had its pros and cons.

In the end, I chose comic, since might as well practice while doing this. Also, I decided not to use any dialogue whatsoever, to see if I can convey the right idea just with images. Time will tell if I made the right choice.

As such, I apologize in advance for the quality of the images and possible inconsistencies.

The story will be divided into chapters, I guess, though it'll be just a few. Four chapters, tops. All in all, it'll be a short story. Hell, if I had written it as a fanfic, it would have been a one-shot.

Anyways, enjoy.
By the way, THE COMIC WILL HAVE MINOR SPOILERS FROM THE GAME, YOU'VE BEEN WARNED.

The comic reads from right to left. Don't ask.
Index:
Chapter 1 (Down here)
Spoiler for Ch. 1:











At the moment, only chapter 1 is complete. I'll start working on chapter 2 and start the plot once I get some free time. Look forward to it!

I wrote the same in your fanart thread, but I'll put it here as well
Dialogue!!! Need badly!!!

Overall it's interesting, though like Mike said, If you hadn't explained the story, I wouldn't have any idea about what's going on...besides the basics like a girl finds magic book and turns some poor mook who's probably her friend into a child, etc

Try shading, I think it'll help, even if you're going for simplistic....

Faces are a bit sharp and angular at times, like with the witch.
I also think you should try squashing their faces a little, I find that sharp long faces are usually male characters, whilst softer smaller faces work for girls

Actually, if you're going for no dialogue, you should add more symbols....I guess. Do giant banners introducing character names count as dialogue?

Besides that...TEACH ME about drawing body postures! They're soo hard, but you're soo good at it!

Eh, I'm not so bothered by the lack of dialogue- though I'm at a bit of an unfair advantage since I played the game. ^_^"

Very nice so far. :D Keep it up~ :3

Besides running the forum, I can provide avatars for people as well~
This is my mod voice. ...Most of the time anyway.

Bet you thought I forgot about this, didn't you? :3
No, it's not forgotten, I just haven't had the time to focus on this. Yeah...I blame college and video games.
Thanks to NAHTCUW for giving me the extra push to continue!
Spoiler for Ch.2:
So, just the first page for now, since it's getting late, but I'll start working on the rest this weekend.
