Thank Jesus that it's pretty much over.
Anyway, I the main reason why I'm posting is because I've joined nanomango again, and I've kinda realised that the pages I'm working working on don't make sense unless you've read the pages I've drawn between the last mango attempt and now, which I never bothered posting. Ooooops.
So I'm going to dump all 70 pages here including the ones I did last mango in this post.
Okay, some background first. The story Chimeran Green is set 20 years post-nuclear holocaust, about a seemingly-normal girl Mina meeting an illegal, arbeit friendly drifter called Li Shun, and how everything goes to hell after the said encounter. I've been meaning to draw this comic ever since I was in High school, but everytime I'd started it, I'd kinda lose interest because: a) I had no idea where the plot was going and b) the art was butt ugly. Although both still hold true, I've decided to go ahead anyway, because I'm tired of this beast mutating in my head with no one to share with, and I need practice. This version is a rough draft, and if I ever go make this into an official webcomic, I'm redoing the pages and dialogue so it's less awkward.
So without furher ado, COMICS! :D
So this was that last year's mango attempt. Afterwards I roughed out another 40 or so pages during the semester (mostly during classes. XD)
Maaaaannnnn this scene was real awkward to do. Awkward dialogue, awkward angles and awkward art. Boring as hell too. Unfortunately to get the plot going anywhere without a crap load of narration (which is something that bothers me about a lot of American comics, where writers find it nessesary to bloody narrate EVERYTHING, even when it's obvious in the panel) so here it is.
This is where it starts to go all sci-fi-y I guess. Can you tell that something sinister is afoot? LOL.
And then it gets trippy.
And that's where I'm at now. I'm thinking of dividing this into two chapters for the polished version, but on the other hand this part is already draggy enough and I really would like to get on with the story (Wooohoo! Explosions! Awesome action scenes! Gruesome deaths! Horrible dismembering! Blood! Guts! Ahem, got too excited there XD) so I'm not sure. We'll see when this chapter is done I guess. You can see my attempt of mangoing this year at nanomango here!
I might post some of the doodles I've been doing besides the comic later, but we'll see. Until then, cya guys~
