Today’s Art (31st December 2017)

Happy New Year everyone 🙂 As regular readers know, I make these comics ridiculously far in advance and this one was made in early March. After all of the political upheavals of 2016, I found the idea of being optimistic about new years had lost some of it’s charm. So, this cartoon ended up being a bit on the cynical side.

Many more comics featuring these characters can be found in the ‘2016’ and ‘2017’ segments of this page. Likewise, here’s the ‘Work In Progress’ line art for today’s comic.

The Complete “Work In Progress” Line Art For My “Damania – A Cynical Christmas (2017)” Webcomic Mini Series

Well, since my Christmas webcomic mini series finished recently, I thought that I’d do my usual thing of showing off the “work in progress” line art that I scanned whilst making it.

If I remember rightly, there weren’t that many major changes between the line art and the finished comics (I added a MS Paint snowman to the final version of “Spirit” and there were some very minor art changes to “Display”).

Anyway, here’s the line art. You can click on each piece of line art to see a much larger (and more readable) version.

Merry Christmas Everyone :)

Merry Christmas everyone 🙂 Normal daily articles and art posts will resume tomorrow. But, in the meantime, here’s an extra Christmas comic (more festive comics featuring these characters can be found here and here). And here’s the line art for this comic too.

I’m also not sure when or if I’ll review the Christmas episode of “Doctor Who”. If I review it, the review may or may not possibly appear until anything up to a few days later.

The Complete “Damania – A Cynical Christmas (2017)” – 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 “Damania – A Cynical Christmas (2017)” webcomic mini series in one easy-to-read post. Many more comics featuring these characters are linked to on this page.

This mini series is something of a follow-up to the Christmas mini series that I made last year. And, although it turned out a lot better than I’d expected (since I actually planned it properly), I’m still not sure whether I prefer it to last year’s one or not.

Whilst the third comic in this mini series (“Movies”) is NOT released under any kind of Creative Commons licence, the other five comics in this mini series (“Novelty”, “Spirit”, “Display”, “Carols” and “Sales”) ARE released under a Creative Commons BY-NC-ND licence.

As usual, you can click on each comic update to see a larger version of it.

Today’s Art (24th December 2017)

Woo hoo! I am very proud to present the sixth (and final) comic in “Damania – A Cynical Christmas (2017)”, my new webcomic mini series – stay tuned for a full mini series retrospective late tonight and a Christmas comic tomorrow. This mini series is kind of a continuation of last year’s Christmas mini series and, if you liked that too, there are loads of other comics featuring these characters linked to in the ‘2016’ and ‘2017’ sections of this page.

Well, after last year’s comic about Christmas shopping, I thought that I’d make a comic about it’s modern equivalent. And, yes, digital distribution for games isn’t entirely bad (as long as the download size isn’t ridiculous, and there isn’t always-online DRM). But, it isn’t entirely good either. In retrospect, I’m annoyed that I didn’t include a point about how it can help out indie developers. But, yes, it’s always a good idea to set a strict budget during seasonal sales on game sites (since buying a digital download of a game doesn’t really “feel” like buying an actual game, so it can be easy to over-buy).

Today’s Art (23rd December 2017)

Woo hoo! I am very proud to present the fifth (and penultimate) comic in “Damania – A Cynical Christmas (2017)”, my new webcomic mini series. This is kind of a continuation of last year’s Christmas mini series and, if you liked that too, there are loads of other comics featuring these characters linked to in the ‘2016’ and ‘2017’ sections of this page. Previous comics in this mini series can be found here: Comic One, Comic Two, Comic Three, Comic Four

Well, this comic was slightly rushed – which is why it mostly takes place indoors. Originally, it was meant to be set outside, but then I realised that I’d have to add snow to every panel (like in this comic), so I changed the setting. But, this also resulted in a much better punchline at the end of the comic (originally, Roz’s final line of dialogue was supposed to be ” ‘Doctor Who’, Of course” or something like that).

Woo hoo! I am very proud to present the fourth comic in “Damania – A Cynical Christmas (2017)”, my new webcomic mini series.

Previous comics in this mini series can be found here: Comic One, Comic Two, Comic Three

And, yes, the final panel of this comic is also a reference to both this comic mini series from February and the ending of this one from May.
