The Complete “Work In Progress” Line Art For My “Damania Reflection” Webcomic Mini Series

Well, as usual, I thought that I’d provide the “work in progress” line art for my recent “Damania Relection” webcomic mini series.

Surprisingly, there were hardly any major dialogue/art changes between the line art and the finished comics (the only one I can think of is the final panel of the first comic). This was mostly because, unlike some of my comics, I planned these ones a lot more extensively before making them.

Anyway, here’s the line art. Enjoy 🙂 As usual, you can click on each piece of line art to see a larger version of it.

The Complete “Damania Reflection” – All Six 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 six “episodes” of my new webcomic mini series into one easy-to-read post. Lots more comics can also be found on this page.

This mini series was kind of an interesting one since, originally, I was worried that this would be another uninspired “I should really make a comic” mini series (like this one or this one). But, as soon as I came up with this idea of using the theme of ‘introspection and philosophy’ for this mini series, it just came to life!

Seriously, this is probably my favourite mini series in a while and it was an absolute joy to make 🙂 Not only that, since I had slightly more time to make this one, I was also able to focus more on improving the art and planning the comics more. So, unlike some mini series, there isn’t a single “bad” comic in this one 🙂

Today’s Art (25th January 2018)

Woo hoo! I am very proud to present the sixth (and final) comic in “Damania Reflection”, a new webcomic mini series featuring the characters who have appeared in most of my other webcomics. Don’t worry if you missed any of this mini series, I’ll post a full retrospective here later tonight. In the meantime, you can find lots of other webcomics here 🙂

But, yeah, I’m surprised that it took me this long to make a comic about this subject (my current favourite term for being totally immersed in a book, game, TV show etc.. is “Trancing”, which I borrowed from this amazing computer game). But, yeah, if anything shortens people’s attention spans, then it’s probably mindless superficial small talk.

Woo hoo! I am very proud to present the fifth comic in “Damania Reflection”, a new webcomic mini series featuring the characters who have appeared in most of my other webcomics. Although this mini series will consist of self-contained comics, I’m kind of thinking of making a more introspection-themed mini series this time. You can catch up on previous comics from this mini series here: Comic One, Comic Two, Comic Three, Comic Four

But, yeah, as cynical as it sounds, the thing described in this comic is one of the best ways to deal with “how it could have turned out differently” regrets about the other paths your life could have taken. However convoluted or contrived your pessimistic view of other timelines is, it’ll make you feel better about the current one by comparsion.

Woo hoo! I am very proud to present the fourth comic in “Damania Reflection”, a new webcomic mini series featuring the characters who have appeared in most of my other webcomics. Although this mini series will consist of self-contained comics, I’m kind of thinking of making a more introspection-themed mini series this time. You can catch up on previous comics from this mini series here: Comic One, Comic Two, Comic Three

Well, I’m surprised that it took me this long to make a comic about “mind, body & spirit” books (especially since I read a lot of them during my early 20s). This comic is probably one of the more nuanced comics that I’ve made, for the simple reason that there aren’t really any provably “right” or “wrong” answers when it comes to things that no-one can truly know (eg: the meaning of life, the existence of a spiritual element in the universe etc..).

But, saying that, there are a lot of scammers and charlatans out there. So don’t take anything you read in a book as truth without thinking about it first(and asking yourself if the main motivation behind the book is financial or political..). Likewise, it’s always a good idea to view ideas put forth in books as just that, ideas.

Woo hoo! I am very proud to present the third comic in “Damania Reflection”, a new webcomic mini series featuring the characters who have appeared in most of my other webcomics. Although this mini series will consist of self-contained comics, I’m kind of thinking of making a more introspection-themed mini series this time. You can catch up on previous comics from this mini series here: Comic One, Comic Two

Surprisingly, although it’s the thid comic in this mini series, this was actually the first one of this set of comics that I planned (a couple of days before I started planning the rest of the mini series). Although my original plan was a lot less art-intensive, I’m feeling more creative than usual with this mini series. So, I decided to set the comic in the same nightclub that has appeared in this comic, this comic and this comic (and is loosely based on a pub called “The Angel” in Aberystywth).

And, yes, punk music (especailly 1990s American punk music) is a lot more depressing than it might seem. Listen to “Soul Mate” By No Use For A Name – at first, it seems like an upbeat punk song but if you actually listen carefully to the lyrics, it’s ridiculously depressing. Now compare this to a metal song like “Ever Dream” by Nightwish, “Leather Rebel” by Judas Priest or “Heaven Can Wait” By Iron Maiden. The emotional tone is completely different! Seriously, metal is a much happier and more uplifting genre than it might look at first glance 🙂

Today’s Art (21st January 2018)

Woo hoo! I am very proud to present the second comic in “Damania Reflection”, a new webcomic mini series featuring the characters who have appeared in most of my other webcomics. Although this mini series will consist of self-contained comics, I’m kind of thinking of making a more introspection-themed mini series this time. You can catch up on previous comics from this mini series here: Comic One

And, yes, it has been way too long since Harvey last solved a case (and even longer since any of the gentleman rogues last appeared). In keeping with the introspective theme, this comic is also a comic about things like highly-inspired creative projects, amazing videogames etc.. too.
