Breakdown by Jackarais Breakdown by Jackarais
Hello dA! I haven't really been active here, or anywhere, because fuck the internet.

Here is a practice comic page I made of my character, Somera, having a mental breakdown whilst being haunted by the demon who possesses him. Because I wanted to draw Somera in peril. Do I really need an excuse for that though. All my comics are about unfortunate dudes getting hurt a lot over hundreds of pages. yea

Mind you , the actual comic for GLiTCH would not be so hyper detailed (I hope... >_>) , but it would defs be in black and white. Because fuck me if I'm ever going to do another long-form comic project all by myself in full goddamn color (like Bicycle Boy). Fuck that noise.

that monster still has lots of other iterations in its future, i'm sure of it. Not quite happy with this design either. I'm glad you like the piece :D

Thank you!!! Sadly, this comic won't come to the spotlight until MUCH later. I'm neck-deep in Bicycle Boy right now with no foreseeable end, and GLiTCH still doesn't have a coherent plot. XD So yeah. One day though!

Well I'm really enjoying Bicycle Boy a lot as well. I can only imagine how much time and effort you put in those pages! ><

Anywhere between 8-16(+) hours per page, my friend! It's taken two years to amass 140 pages. Shit, looking back it sure doesn't feel like much.

Ahhh so many eyes and screaming faces, yusss. And still lovin' those monster feets, as you know!

I like the direction you're taking with Running Man's design. Is Xenos gonna get the same treatment you think?

Uhh Xenos' arms have five segments (shoulder, bicep, second bicep, forearm, hand) instead of the regular four (shoulder, bicep, forearm, hand).  And I might change his face??? Also might change him to be feminine instead of masculine because in an old version of GLiTCH Keeno had a spirit companion that was a chick but I dunno. Might just add more negative points to my whole 'WOMEN BAD GUYS' thing. But other than that I'm not really sure.

pfff I don't think there's anything inherently wrong about that. It's more prominent in BB 'cause you're putting all the ladies in positions of power, which is a nice change from dudes running absolutely everything. With their bigshot positions their strengths and weaknesses are kinda highlighted a bit more; they're people, so they all have faults. The big issue people sometimes have is when they're badguys because of their gender. Or race, or sexuality, or whatever else. I don't think you have an issue with that, so should be fine. And even then, a way to get around people even thinking that's a thing is to have goodguys with similar traits at the badguys, so that the badguys aren't the only representation of a thing (women/lesbians/etc.).

That's just something I picked up from some writing blogs. /shrug
I don't think you're specifically going out and being like "yes, this character will be a badguy 'cause they're a lady", you're just doing "yes, this character is a lady who also happens to be a badguy". That's not ~~*~problematic~*~~ lol

And man I keep forgetting about his extra-segment arms! Awesome stufff, yiss
You could also go for the androg thing with him or some other demons, too, since you've been aiming to do that with some characters? I'm sure demons would have a different concept (or lack-thereof) of gender than humens do /shrugshrug

Yeah I guess all the dudes in BB are the underlings. But then again I probably subconsciously write the lower-tier people as the more good-hearted ones just because I relate with that better than the people in power. But like, it's hard to be a leader. It's hard to manage several thousand people without making a bunch of them mad as fuck, even if you have the best intentions at heart. And Solle doesn't do things out of a bad place, or a malicious place, she does it for the good of the largest amount of people (her people), at a (comparatively) small price. I guess some of that heartlessness(?) she shows is out of self-preservation. I dunno. Everyone in this story is swimming in a big muddy goddamn grey area

Yeah I mean...they're monsters...who cares about whether there are boy or girl ones

Ye man, I can see why she does that thing. Kinda like a 'well might as well try to save everyone' > being nice. Grey area characters are awesome! If people's personalities and actions are strictly dictated by labels of 'goodguy/badguy' then it's just predictable and unrealistic.

Monsters gonna be monster gender!
