The (Almost) Complete “Work In Progress” Line Art For My “Damania Resolute” Webcomic Mini Series

2017 Artwork Damania Resolute lineart article sketch

Well, I thought that I’d show off the ‘work in progress’ line art for all twelve comics in my recent ‘Damania Resolute‘ webcomic mini series.

If I remember rightly, there weren’t too many major art/dialogue changes between the original line art and the finished comics in this mini series.

I removed a satirical line of dialogue from the finished version of the third comic (I also reluctantly ended up censoring it in the line art too, because I was worried that the satire was too harsh). I also made a couple of slight dialogue changes to the first comic for pacing reasons. There were also some slight changes to the art in the “Yet Again” and “Clay Pigeon Shooting” comics too.
Plus, shortly before posting, I also altered some of the dialogue in the finished version of the “Conspiracy” comic too (since I’d originally prepared the comic before some of the major political upheavals of 2016 happened).

Plus, I forgot to scan the line art for the final comic in this mini series until shortly after I’d started adding watercolour pencil. So, the last piece of “line art” in this post is actually a digitally-edited version of the partially-painted comic that is meant to simulate what the original line art looked like.

As usual, you can click on any of these pictures to see a larger version, if they’re too small to read here.

The Complete “Damania Resolute” – All 12 Episodes Of The New Webcomic Mini Series By C. A. Brown

Well, in case you missed any of it, I thought that I’d collect all twelve episodes of my “Damania Resolute” webcomic mini series together in one easy-to-read post. If you want to see more of my comics, links to them can be found here.

All in all, this mini series was reasonably fun to make, although I suffered from writer’s block slightly more than usual – so, I’m only really completely satisfied with about half of the updates in this mini series. Still, there are still some great comics here ( “Absinthe”, “Clay Pigeon Shooting”, “Yet Again”, “Eventful”, “Four Nights” and “London” are probably my favourites).

As usual, you can click on each comic to see a larger version of it if it’s too small to read. Likewise, all twelve comics in this mini series are released under a Creative Commons BY-NC-ND licence.

Today’s Art (12th January 2017)

I’m very proud to present the twelth (and final) comic in “Damania Resolute” 🙂 Don’t worry if you missed any of the earlier comics, since I’ll be posting a full retrospective of the series here later tonight. If you want to see more comics featuring these characters, lots of them can be found on this page.

This is one of those things about TV shows set in the UK that I only really started noticing a couple of years ago but, once you spot it, you can’t un-see it. Shortly after making this comic, I was also pleasantly surprised to find that TV Tropes has an entire page about the unimaginative choice of British settings in TV shows, movies etc…

And, yes, I don’t come from London (although I am from Southern England). In fact, I can probably count the number of times I’ve visited that overcrowded, busy, over-priced, over-hyped city on the fingers of both hands.

Today’s Art (11th January 2017)

Well, it’s a new year and it’s time for a new webcomic mini series! As such, I’m very proud to present the eleventh (and penultimate) comic in “Damania Resolute” 🙂 If you want to see more comics featuring these characters, lots of them can be found on this page.

This comic was inspired by both a short-lived fascination with fountain pens that I had last year (here’s an article explaining why it didn’t last that long) and the fact that the pen I was using to make this comic had started to run out (hopefully, it isn’t noticeable, but I had to switch pens whilst making this comic).

But, yeah, as pen types go, rollerballs (that have a more free-floating ball and slightly runnier ink than “normal” ballpoint pens) are the best – although, if you get waterproof ink ones, some types of them have a habit of guzzling ink at a ridiculous rate when used for drawing/comics (good ones last about a month or so at most! ). Ironically, the non-waterproof ink rollerball I use for note taking and/or comic planning has lasted for at least a few months.

Today’s Art (10th January 2017)

Well, it’s a new year and it’s time for a new webcomic mini series! As such, I’m very proud to present the tenth comic in “Damania Resolute” 🙂 If you want to see more comics featuring these characters, lots of them can be found on this page.

Well, it’s been a while since I made a “night” comic. If you want to see the previous “night” comics, they can be found here, here and here. Originally, Rox wasn’t going to appear in this comic but I couldn’t exactly make a 1990s-themed panel about alternative music without including her. Not to mention that a “night” comic isn’t a “night” comic without Rox.

And, yes, punk music actually used to be in the charts back in the 1990s (this was how I discovered The Offspring, the first truly cool band I ever found. I never cared much for Blink 182 though). Surprisingly though, I wouldn’t discover Bad Religion until I was in my early-mid twenties!

Today’s Art (9th January 2017)

Well, it’s a new year and it’s time for a new webcomic mini series! As such, I’m very proud to present the ninth comic in “Damania Resolute” 🙂 If you want to see more comics featuring these characters, lots of them can be found on this page.

Well, this is a comic for really old fans of the series. The last time that Penkerton appeared was in 2012 (here and here). The gentlemen rogues (such as the cloaked crook) are somewhat more recent though – and more comics featuring them can be found here, here, here, here and here.

Well, it’s a new year and it’s time for a new webcomic mini series! As such, I’m very proud to present the eighth comic in “Damania Resolute” 🙂 If you want to see more comics featuring these characters, lots of them can be found on this page.

This comic was actually inspired by the one time that I’ve been clay pigeon shooting. It was during the very first couple of weeks of university, where the sports societies were holding introductory events to try to get people to join them. Since the university was in a vaguely rural area, one of the sports on offer was clay pigeon shooting. I had a lot of fun in the introductory session but, as soon as I saw how much it cost in cartridge fees, let alone membership fees, I quickly moved on to something else. Seriously, shooting is expensive!

If anyone is wondering what Harvey is eating in the last panel, it’s a shooter’s sandwich. Seriously, I really want to try one of these sometime.
