I’m glad to finally share my mini comic.

This is the second complete comic I have ever made. The first one I created when I was little. It was titled: ‘Man Eating Pickles from Outer Space’. (Technically I never finished that either since it was a two parter.) So considering--I am proud to have finished this haha.

Interesting! And thought provoking, the little girl shared the same fate as the others ... willingly. She didn´t know any better. It shows the importance of getting choices to act differently than the ways you are used to. Books and stories you read can give you new choices, other realities, it did so for me. Thanks for sharing!

Yes emphasis on willingly! Although I wouldn't say it was because she didn't know any better.
I do agree that it is important to act differently than you are used when it is harmful.

Thank you for reading and for your comment! :heart: :heart:

Yikes! As grim as this comic was from start to finish, this nicely-drawn story would make the perfect storyboard for an animated horror short!

All in all, I think the comic is an expressive dark parody of the vicious cycle(s) of insomnia and psychological trauma in general.

I absolutely love the comic and drawing style X3 I've always wanted to make short little comics like this one with dark themes and the same sorta black and white coloring to it but I never know where to start. How do you draw out and size the panels for each page?

Ah thank you and thanks for reading!
My method was a bit convoluted in the making of this comic.
I first thumb nailed each page and got the general gist of what I wanted from each panel. I drew just the borders of all the panels in a page and fit them on one regular 8.5x11 piece of paper. Once you get the length of the two sides that make your panel, scale them up proportionally as much as you reasonably can so that you have to room to pack all the detail you want.
In general its good to draw your panels bigger than you plan to print them/share them so that the quality will be good.
Now that you have the enlarged version of your panel, you can draw. After you're done, scan them and compile the panels into pages in Photoshop or whatever you use. 

My math wasn't so great when making this out of lack of patience and efficiency...so i ended up transforming (stretching, cropping, squashing) some panels to make them fit perfectly in my page template. 

No one really taught me this method and like i said it a bit convoluted, but i hope this helps/makes sense. If you have any other questions I'd love to elaborate.

Part of me thinks i shouldn't explain because art is supposed to be interpreted but I'm too self-indulgent to pass this opportunity up...sooo

***SPOILS***



She didn't want to and the monster didn't want to eat her either.
It was a choice though. Its supposed to reveal the nature of her relationship with these two people. That some can unfortunately be/become dependent on obviously toxic relationships. 

Thanks for asking my friend! pink heart bullet pink heart bullet pink heart bullet

It's part of what makes them monsters I guess xD 'I'm vegan' is a lot less threatening than 'I eat people'
...to me anyways
I don't know about anyone else hahaha

Maybe the monster kills humans but only eats potatoes...

...are you calling me out right now?

jk

I think that since we often use 'monster' as a noun or as a sub for any kind of horned, toothy, hairy thing and not just a descriptor of someone's evil nature, it can be sadly reduced to how something looks. So as long as something looks freakish, for ex. the cookie monster, we call it a monster. 

I think we can safely call a monster who kills people and only eats potatoes,,, a monster. Unless this is some majestic, magical and mesmerizing looking creature that you're thinking of...

Personally, nah
I wouldn't call any creature that has lived/is living on earth a monster
Aside from probably humans haha
