After last week’s POISON ADVISORY, here’s some news you can use about WEAPONS. As with the last comic, all of these tips and infoz are super basic, and you really should research further if your aim is to someday become super pro… also, to keep all your fingers.
Can I marry a knife? I would totally marry my chef knife. It’s the best knife.
(Non-educational hijinks return in two weeks. Sorry not sorry for the foray into PSA territory, but I really don’t want any followers maiming themselves or poisoning their kid brother or something because of me.)
The entire major primary cast for the first book of my soon to be published online Webcomic - Agents of the Realm
C & P’d from the webcomic’s site because honestly I’m a little fried and tired:
Shortly after beginning their first year of college at Silvermount University, Five young women discover that they’ve each been chosen to help protect not just our world, but a newly discovered sister dimension as well. As they venture forward through their college years their lives start to take on forms of their own, providing them with new opportunities to learn just how much power they have over them.
Agents of the Realm is a College years coming of age story, taking influence from a number of timeless Magical Girl themed stories.
The story does contain some coarse language and (fantasy) violence. It also covers sensitive subject matter such as Domestic Abuse and violence, Alcoholism, Eating Disorders and Self harm.
The idea itself came to me because, truth be told, I couldn’t really deal with how long it was taking for the new Sailor Moon series to come out. Magical Girl stories pretty much helped shape a lot of my identity and self-esteem and it made me wonder why there weren’t more out there, especially more with actual diverse casting and prominent PoCs. I was accepting of it growing up because Anime and Magical Girls were heavily imported from Asia and America still hadn’t jumped on board with that kind of storytelling and context yet which was fine. But I’m in my Mid-20s and still haven’t really come across particularly many stories in the same vein that make any type of effort to acknowledge that the world is incredibly diverse and there’s so many young women (and men) out there that gravitate towards these kinds of stories that come from more than just a couple of different backgrounds.
So yeah, welcome to my idea of a Magical Girl adventure.
Norah Tanner , Adele Silveira, Kendall Matthews, Paige FIerro, Jordan Liu, Ruby and Jade Blackwater and… those last two? Well, they’re not going to appear for a while now so i guess you don’t have to worry too much about them eh? (But if you’re curious, they’re not entirely blacked out so if your monitor doesn’t suck like mine you can probably still get a peak as to what they look like! One of them has already been featured on this blog already but since I’m not revealing the name, have fun trying to find them ahahah!)
Oh, also I guess this marks the end of my hiatus so back to your regular (not really) schedule programming
Okay for some reason Tumblr decided to eat the other half of what I wrote:
Basically there’s an official schedule set up. The prologue in it’s entirity will be posted Sunday, March 2nd of this year, with Chapter 1 officially starting on Sunday, April 6th. It will be updated Sundays and Thursdays with a goal of each new chapter starting on the First Sunday of every month.
It’ll be posted here (feel free to check out the site though the official Blog is on lock down at the moment until March 6th, Sorry!), but if you want to keep it bookmarked, feel free to do so!
I won’t be posting any more official news regarding this until closer to the date but yay! Things are wonderfully on schedule so this should (hopefully!) be good!
Tumblr is a black hole that decided to eat every piece of actual important information about when this was going live so if you’ve reblogged the original, please reblog this one instead e_e
Also incredibly happy to announce that I’ll be joining and publishing Agents of the Realm under Hiveworks! I’m incredibly happy and excited to be on board!
Okay, I’m sure you guys are burned out from me reblogging this but just a minor bit of awesome news for the webcomic!
Starting this upcoming MONDAY 2/24, I’ll be starting my webcomic, About Merpeople!
Look for updates on Mondays and Wednesdays! Expect to see more comics about Floundermaid, Mermit Crab, the pregnant Seahorsemen, etc., and a slew of other brand new merfolk!!
(Also, I’ve reposted all of the previous comics I’ve done so you can flip through them here)
Please spread the word!! Thank you so much!!
Hello all!!! Thanks so much for all of the positive responses I got to some of the merpeople comics I started posting back in December. I’m really grateful for all of the kind and encouraging messages I’ve received from you guys over the past couple of months.
I want to keep on making merpeople comics on a regular basis, and that their new home will be at aboutmerpeople.tumblr.com. I will be updating this twice a week, and I’m really excited about some of the new comics, new characters, and longer storylines I’ll be exploring in the near future :)
If you like my merpeople comics, PLEASE SHARE/spread the word!! And expect a new comic on Monday!!
Thanks so much!!!
P.S. I had picked out today as the date to make this announcement in advance, and I found out this morning that today’s Sketch Dailies topic is actually Mermaids as well! This was purely coincidental, but it’s exciting for me because that means twitter, tumblr, instagram, etc. will be full of dozens of artists’ mermaid drawings and that makes me incredibly happy :) If you guys aren’t following Sketch Dailies, you should check it out because it’s pretty neat!
The Merpeople comics are getting their own dedicated space! Hooray!
(I was also wondering where people were getting their Sketch Dailies prompts from. Because I follow a lot of artists who are using those prompts!)
Does anyone realized, it’s the red circle. The red one stands for America.
I think the Russians didn’t mess up, they were sending a message.
“Prior to 1951, the official handbook stated that each color corresponded to a particular continent: blue for Europe, yellow for Asia, black for Africa, green for Australia and Oceania and red for America ” -Wikipedia
