WEDNESDAY by Respheal WEDNESDAY by Respheal
Monday left me broken
Tuesday I was through with hoping
Wednesday my empty arms were open
Thursday waiting for love, waiting for love
Thank the stars it's Friday
I'm burning like a fire gone wild on Saturday
Guess I won't be coming to church on Sunday
~"Waiting for Love" by Avicii

Y'know how I said my next drawing wouldn't have a hand as the focal point? Well SHHHHHHHHHHHHH.

Anyway, Vera of WEDNESDAY 7 approached me asking if I was interested in an art trade. I've never done one before so hey why not! Her webcomic sounds super interesting and the main character, Merc, is a cutie. I have a feeling he's about to have a heckuva time. This here is the titular character, "a demon that kind of 'embodies' the concept of Wednesday."

So here's some trivia: English speakers may know that our word for 'Wednesday' stems from 'Wodnesday', from 'Odin'. Doesn't really fit this guy from what little we know of him so far. However, in the Romance languages, the word for the fourth day of the week stems from 'Mercurii', from the god Mercury aka Hermes, patron god of travelers, trickery and thieves. Now that sounds a little more like this guy.

Anyway, go check out WEDNESDAY 7 over at Smack Jeeves; I will be following it with interest:…

Also check out Vera's end of the art trade!

I promise my next non-comic drawing won't have a hand as the focal point.

Thanks! It took a lot of deliberating to think of an appropriate pose and style <3

Very nice work Res! Love his pose and expression! Seems like a cool character too. Art trades can be really fun too!

thanks a bunch Respheal, Wednesday looks great! I just read your description and I can see you did research into the history behind the week days. Mercury's name does indeed link to the god Mercury/Hermes and even though that god's day is Thursday...there is a reason that I made it that way and that is to be revealed...soon hopefully!

Wait. WAIIIIIIT. Wow. Just caught the Merc-short-for-Mercury thing. I SEE WHAT YOU DID THERE. Wow, if that revelation was a snake it would've bit me.

Anyway, I'm really excited for where your comic is going :D Keep at it!
