The Ultimate Cliche

It's Cushfuddled's birthday tomorrow (or so DeviartArt says) so it gave me the perfect excuse to make some fan/gift art for her comic project Chosen: The Ultimate Cliche. It's a funny and charming comic that starts out about a character named Emile who, after waking up in the land of Cornelle and being dubbed "Chosen One", stubbornly refuses to allow the plot to progress by doing nothing. The plot proves to be an unstoppable force; however, when Sophie, otherwise known as 'Sen', makes her way into the story and gives Emile character development he never wanted and reveals that she, too, is the one and only "Chosen One." The duo quickly doubles when they meet two other Chosen Ones - Cordy and Andrea, and the semi-reluctant gang sets off with their Cornilian Backpacks to do...something. Kill a dragon? Discover who the real Chosen One is? Openly challenge the author some more? Only one thing is decided - the plot won't stop. Read it on the website here chosentheultimatecliche.thecom… or on DeviantArt here 
cushfuddled.deviantart.com/gal… (the website is a few pages ahead)

From top to bottom, left to right, the characters are - Emile with his pistol and hugging his backpack, not turning his back to make a circle with the others because he isn't a team player, Sen with her bandages pointing at something exciting, the eternal optimist, Andrea with her Boomerang kind of huddling into herself, the uncertain, and Cordy with their axe looking sharp and serious as ever.

(I don't know Cordy's gender, google says Cordy is a girl name, but they look kinda sharp and masculine? Also men have that name to so *shrugs* who cares really. All I really know is that when they see Sen for the first time on page 43 they blush and I want to know if they're just flustered in general or if it's something else.) 

Edit After rereading it, I realized Emile does refer to Cordy as "Lady" so I suppose she is in fact, female. :blush:

I hope you like it Cushfuddled! I'm sorry that Sen's bandage wrap looks like toilet paper. Also, I just guessed at what Andrea's boomerange and Emile's pistol looks like.

Nice, I love the colors in this :D
I'll have to add this to my list of things I need to read, it sounds amazing xD
I had an idea for a story somewhat similar to this, parodying the "Chosen One" trope. My story didn't have multiple chosen ones, though, that's a hilarious idea.

I really should start writing down these stories I come up with.

Thanks! I tried some new things with the effects and line art, I'm happy with the results minus a few nit picks :)
You definitely should add it to your list! The style is also very unique and pleasant to look at, although the pages look different on dA compared to the comic's website up til page 33. 

Haha, sounds like a good idea! xD

Andrea is special. She gets four fingers while the others only get three.
