I honestly don’t understand artists who give all their characters the same face and body. This is the most fun thing. Diversity is fun and cool to make and read!
So, if my Patreon gets up to $1500, I debut a second regular webcomic. I’ve been working on these characters since 2011, and I’ve finally figured out enough of this story to actually work on it as a comic (instead of the novel I got 50,000 words into before I decided it’d work better as a comic). I’ve also more or less figured out how I want to draw everybody.
The story is about Anna, a fortune teller with the Samson Brothers Circus, trying to figure out who murdered her knife-throwing twin sister, Kat, whose ghost is restless. Soon after the murder, other members of the circus, all of whom are suspects, begin developing strange mutations, which ringmaster and circus owner Jebediah Tetanus is all too happy about. It takes place in a loose version of post Civil War America as the circus train traverses the country. It’s not steampunk, though there are some anachronisms. (No goggles and no airships, gears on trains not hats.) It’ll be for an audience of teen and up, mostly for violence. It is a supernatural murder mystery, after all.
I just hit 20,000 followers. If 8% of you gave me $1, the goal would be met and you would get to read this series. That’s entirely do-able. So consider checking out my Patreon!
A quick doodle of a character in a novel I’ve been working on for the past year. Needed to get her more concrete in my head. She’s big and tall, with a squeaky little girl voice. She’s a warm and caring person who falls in love too easily and men take that for granted. She works in a circus as a snake charmer, but she’s developed allergies to snakes so she isn’t sure about her future.
Goddess Sappho design for Lesbian Pirates From Outer Space. Sappho was described in literature as “violet haired”, which I don’t think literally means purple hair, except this is outer space Sappho so she gets it. I had initially been thinking that the fashion should blend ancient Greece with American 1950’s, but decided to just go with the Greek aesthetic instead.
New pages of Eat Me are up. This is the part where you realize there are Evangelion-inspired monsters in this porno series. Because why not.
This dude was pretty cool to me in a dream I had. Put him in my character design folder. Might end up using him for something.
Character Heights (Volume One)
Did you know Alice is really tall? Did you know Marge and Janet are really short? Probably not, since Megan from five years ago decided to draw everyone the same height despite wanting them all to be different heights. So here is the cast, in order of tallest to shortest.
The fancy dress uniform for Lesbos-1, coming up soon in LPFOS. Along with the official Lesbos-1 salute.
The evolution of Susie. From the very beginning, I wanted her to have an upturned nose, but I didn’t actually know how to draw them until years into doing this comic.
