So, I’ve been thinking about it, and the colored text for Matt wasn’t working for me, so I changed it. And the shirt too. Rip XDM. The books are still available, but the shirts are not.
So I wasn’t sure if I was going to post this, as its very very niche and I have to explain a lot, but then I realized I wasn’t going to have anything else done today, so yeah.
First, this comic was meant to be the start of my round 1 entry. But then all of this other stuff happened instead. No idea what that means, but that’s how it happened. I really like where it ended up, although its going to be a bit obscure for people who aren’t in the same circles that I am.
So first, Who is that sitting next to Matt? Honestly, I’m not sure of his name. On my script, he was a vague blob with the notation “Tribute?” I then went diving through Whistle-Tall’s archives, trying to find something that would work. I ended up finding a character from years ago that created Vic, which is his character in the contest. There were a lot of conflicting names and lore and stuff, and all of it from a long time ago.
The second guy, behind the groucho glasses, is named Pip (as, you know, it says in the comic) So Pip had history with the comic, which isn’t really easily found online anymore. Pip was part of a small story arc that resulted in Matt turning into Rachael. Or rather, assuming her form. It’s complicated. But I used to read a lot of Pips comic. I don’t anymore. Maybe I ought to pick it up again. He’s a fun writer.
Another important thing is that 4ish years ago, Pip and Lust (one of his characters) created the Glamour Dome, version 1 of this contest. I don’t know if there is actually any plan they have. But I thought it would make a fun hook.
Happy Friday people! I’ve joined into a contest over on Deviant Art and that means I have to over do things. Cuz that’s what I do. So today and at least next week, we will be interrupting the current Pokemon storyline and running Veldrin’s Beauty Dome instead.
So I decided to try something a little different in the third panel. What do you think of that?
Srsly, I’d love some feedback. Does that ruin things? Does it make you rethink the previous page? What?
That’s the end of Chapter 1. I hope you enjoyed. I’m going to toss up a set of filler-type images for the rest of the week, but….
CHAPTER 2 Starts posting on Monday!!
Is this a perfect Friday page or what? I lucked into that…
This is a concept that I’ve thought about a lot. Games, movies, books I have favorites that I’ve played/watched/read hundreds of times. And often, I regret that I’ll never be able to read it for the first time again. So I would indeed love to experience this experience.
