The Complete Line Art For My “Video Nasty” Halloween Comic :)

2017-artwork-video-nasty-lineart-article-sketch

Well, since I finished posting this year’s Halloween comic recently, I thought that I’d do the usual thing and show off the “Work In Progress” line art for it.

If I remember rightly, there weren’t really that many changes between the art/dialogue in the line art and the final comics (apart from the addition of paint, digital effects etc.. of course.) The largest change is probably a panel on page 11 which was added digitally in the finished comic (and left blank in the line art).

Anyway, here’s the line art 🙂 You can click on each picture to see a larger version if they’re too small to read.

The Complete “Video Nasty” – All 12 Pages Of The New Horror Comedy Comic By C.A. Brown

2017-artwork-the-complete-video-nasty

Happy Halloween again 🙂 In case you missed any of it, I thought that I’d provide all twelve pages (including the cover) of this year’s Halloween comic in one easy-to-read post 🙂 Links to many other comics featuring these characters can also be found here.

All in all, this was probably a slightly over-ambitious project. Normally, when I make A4-size narrative comics (like last year’s Halloween comic), I make them in black & white for time/enthusiasm reasons. But, I wanted to make a full-colour comic this year and, although it started out well, I started to get comic fatigue near the end – so, the art quality suffered slightly from about page seven onwards or so. Still, thanks to planning the whole thing out in advance, the dialogue wasn’t affected by this.

As usual, all twelve pages are released under a Creative Commons BY-NC-ND licence. You can also click on each page to see a larger version of it, if it’s too small to read.

Today’s Art (31st October 2017)

Happy Halloween everyone 🙂 Here’s the final page of my Halloween comic, but don’t worry if you missed any of it since there will be a full retrospective posted here later tonight 🙂

Surprisingly, the final panel of this comic was the most challenging to make. Since, even though I used the same materials that I used in 2012 (yes, before this blog, when I only used to post webcomics on DeviantART) it was surprisingly difficult to draw the kind of “bad art” that I used to make back then, since I kept wanting to draw it using my current style LOL!

And, for those who are wondering why only Derek recognises Rox in the final panel – she made her first appearance in December 2012, but there was also a prequel comic (which can be found on page two of this gallery) featuring Derek and Rox when they were at university. Ironically, it’s probably more well-written than some parts of this comic were, although the art looks really old though. And Derek’s surname is apparently “Goff” (I’d totally forgotten about that. Yes, he used to be more of a goth).

And, yes, this page is also a subtle parody of the alternate ending to “Army Of Darkness”. Ironcally, when I first saw this film on ex-rental VHS when I was a teenager, it had that ending (I think that the canonical “Hail to the king” ending was only included in US releases). So, for quite a while, I thought that it was the “official” ending.

Today’s Art (30th October 2017)

Woo hoo! I am very proud to present the tenth (and penultimate) page of this year’s Halloween comic 🙂 Stay tuned for the final page tomorrow 🙂 In the meantime, you can catch up on previous pages here: Cover, Page One, Page Two, Page Three, Page Four, Page Five, Page Six, Page Seven, Page Eight, Page Nine

Unlike previous Halloween comics, this one will hopefully be in full colour and I’ll be using the ‘rectangular’ format that I used in my previous webcomic mini series. But, unlike that mini series, this one will be a narrative comic, like last year’s Halloween comic. More comics featuring these characters can be found here.

Woo hoo! I am very proud to present the ninth page of this year’s Halloween comic 🙂 Stay tuned for the next page tomorrow 🙂 In the meantime, you can catch up on previous pages here: Cover, Page One, Page Two, Page Three, Page Four, Page Five, Page Six, Page Seven, Page Eight

…And, yes, the glowing portal/sigil thing on the wall in the third panel was originally supposed to be red (it was meant to be a “Silent Hill 3” reference) but I ended up digitally changing it to green instead, so it would stand out better against the purple background.

Woo hoo! I am very proud to present the eighth page of this year’s Halloween comic 🙂 Stay tuned for the next page tomorrow 🙂 In the meantime, you can catch up on previous pages here: Cover, Page One, Page Two, Page Three, Page Four, Page Five, Page Six, Page Seven

But, unlike that mini series, this one will be a narrative comic, like last year’s Halloween comic. More comics featuring these characters can be found here.

So, this was why Roz messed up the “Army Of Darkness” quotes in yesterday’s episode! Seriously though, I’ve never understood news articles that moan about “pre-loading”. I mean, even in the olden days, surely people went to pubs before they went clubbing?

Woo hoo! I am very proud to present the seventh page of this year’s Halloween comic 🙂 Stay tuned for the next page tomorrow 🙂 In the meantime, you can catch up on previous pages here: Cover, Page One, Page Two, Page Three, Page Four, Page Five, Page Six

Unlike previous Halloween comics, this one will hopefully be in full colour and I’ll be using the ‘rectangular’ format that I used in my previous webcomic mini series. But, unlike that mini series, this one will be a narrative comic, like last year’s Halloween comic. More comics featuring these characters can be found here.

But, why did Roz mess up a mixture of two classic lines [“This is my boomstick!” and “Hail to the king, baby!”] from “Army Of Darkness“? The real reason is, of course, paranoia about copyright. But stay tuned for an in-universe explantion tomorrow.
