The Complete “Work In Progess” Line Art For My “Damania Renaissance” Webcomic Mini Series :)

2017 Artwork Damania Renaissance lineart article sketch

Well, as usual, I thought that I’d show you all of the ‘work in progress’ line art from my recently-finished “Damania Renaissance” webcomic mini series 🙂

If I remember rightly, there weren’t that many major dialogue changes between the line art and the finished comics – the most major change was probably to the dialogue in the fourth comic (since the condemned man was originally going to be the castle’s dungeonkeeper, until I realised that it would be funnier if he was the executioner instead).

The Complete “Damania Renaissance” – All Eight Episodes Of The New Webcomic Mini Series By C. A. Brown

2017 Artwork The Complete Damania Renaissance

Well, in case you missed any of it, here are all eight “episodes” of “Damania Renaissance” a webcomic mini series that sort of tells a story (or, more accurately, a self-contained chapter of a larger story).

Although this mini series can be read on it’s own, it also follows on from the events of “Damania Retrofuturistic“. If you want to see some completely self-contained webcomics, then check out the ‘2016’ section of this page.

All in all, this was a rather strange mini series. Not only did it end up having something of a continuous story (which is something I’d previously tried to avoid in my four-panel webcomics), but I also made the whole thing in just two days.

This can probably be seen in the comic, with the first four episodes having a slightly different style of humour to the last four. Likewise, the seventh and eighth episodes are slightly on the weak side, due to the fact that I was feeling a bit exhausted by then.

If you’d told me a couple of months beforehand that I’d be making a medieval fantasy comic mini series with a continuous narrative within two days, I’d have probably laughed at you. Making this mini series was certainly a strange experience.

Today’s Art (25th February 2017)

Woo hoo! I am very proud to present the eighth (and final) comic in “Damania Renaissance”, a webcomic mini series that follows on from “Damania Retrofuturistic“. As usual, I’ll post a full retrospective of this comic here later tonight. So, don’t worry if you missed out on any of the earlier updates.

If you want to see more webcomic mini series (and other comics), links to them can be found on this page.

Well, I’ll probably go back to making daily paintings for a while, but the next time-travel based series will be set in Victorian England 🙂

Today’s Art ( 24th February 2017)

Woo hoo! I am very proud to present the seventh (and penultimate) comic in “Damania Renaissance”, a webcomic mini series that follows on from “Damania Retrofuturistic“. Although I’ll try to keep every comic in this mini series at least vaguely self-contained, it’s worth checking out the previous mini series too. If you want to see more webcomic mini series (and other comics), links to them can be found on this page.

This comic was slightly rushed. Even so, I kind of wanted to include vikings somewhere in this series, as historically inaccruate as they may be.

Woo hoo! I am very proud to present the sixth comic in “Damania Renaissance”, a webcomic mini series that follows on from “Damania Retrofuturistic“. Although I’ll try to keep every comic in this mini series at least vaguely self-contained, it’s worth checking out the previous mini series too. If you want to see more webcomic mini series (and other comics), links to them can be found on this page.

In case you’re puzzled by anything in this comic (so much for self-contained comics!), then check out this comic about medieval beer and this comic about Harvey and Rox starting a Robin Hood-style band of outlaws.

Plus, if any of my American readers are confused about Rox’s dialogue in the fourth panel, ‘the bogs’ is British slang for ‘the bathrooms’.

Likewise, if anyone is wondering why Harvey is smoking a historically-inaccurate pipe, then just consider it foreshadowing for the next time travel-based mini series, whenever I get round to making it… There are still two episodes of this one to go and I’ll probably take a “break” (and make ordinary daily paintings) between the series.

Woo hoo! I am very proud to present the fifth comic in “Damania Renaissance”, a webcomic mini series that follows on from “Damania Retrofuturistic“. Although I’ll try to keep every comic in this mini series at least vaguely self-contained, it’s worth checking out the previous mini series too. If you want to see more webcomic mini series (and other comics), links to them can be found on this page.

If you’re wondering why Harvey and Rox have resorted to outlawry, it might have something to do with their reaction to King Derek’s justice policies.

Woo hoo! I am very proud to present the fourth comic in “Damania Renaissance”, a webcomic mini series that follows on from “Damania Retrofuturistic“.

Trust Derek to end up executing his own executioner on his first day as king, or to not realise that the (rather sleazy) custom of the “Droit Du Seigneur” probably didn’t actually exist in medieval Britain.
