Just another character study for a comic I was thinking about and decided not to do it. This guy was just one of the characters and I can't even remember what it was supposed to be about. I was writing it all because I thought it would be funny if there was a group of intergalactic smugglers who work together and they get a new guy. So they're introducing him around and they come to Yuri who's from Russia and they get the new guy to ask Yuri what he's going to do with all his money and Yuri (very excited that someone wants to listen to his dream) says, "Some day I will buy my own country and it will be free and prosperous and I will name it after me (some snickering from the others) and I will call it Yuri-nation!" And the snickers burst into laughter and that was the whole driving force behind this comic. This character wasn't Yuri. I'll scan him later.
It's the character study of Minnow, the main character in a brand new fairy tale I've been thinking about and writing a bit about for the last...4 years now? I have too many stories in my head and not enough time! One of them has to be good.
I keep beginning comics all based around the premise of being in a room that's a trap with a lowering spiky ceiling and everything just because I think it would be hillarious for one of the guys in it to tell the woman not to worry because if the ceiling gets too low he'll brace it with his body. It makes me laugh. So here's the beginning of one story I gave up on. It's the typical military girl and roguish guy marry on accident and get trapped in the lobby of his secret lair only to set off the alarm and so the ceiling is going to crush them because he forgot the password. I know, lame.
Vampires are the undead, so if they cut themselves they can't heal. I submit that vampires become desicated corpses and so they spread tales that they are young and sexy forever and thus lure morons to their deaths and slow rotting nights. Here is my interpretation of one such idiot who is beginning to show her emaciation. No wonder they stay in the dark! I also think that if a vampire drank as much blood as they do in movies they'd be more like ticks and should pop when stabbed with stakes, but that is another project I'm working on.
Another personal project I'm working on. It's called SHE-MAN and it's a parody of She-ra and He-man. I have the first issue all roughed out but it's slow going when you have to work at a real job...or two. I better finish it soon or I can't justify buying season one and two of She-ra...for reference of course.
