Peter's End: Title Page by squonkhunter Peter's End: Title Page by squonkhunter
PAGE ONE: [link]

Ah if I didn't have enough comics going on right now.

The beginnings of a project for English 414, my creative writing class, taught by David Maine. He's probably my favorite professor, and he encourages the telling of stories through many different mediums, one of his favorites (or at least the one he's most enthusiastic about) is the graphic novel.

New Faro is connected to HMS in an odd way that I can't divulge at the moment.

I had him last year for 313, where I entered "Like Sand," which you can read here, if it so pleases you: [link]

New Faro is a fictional city of mine where a lot of my tales take place. (That is actually James on the cover. We will get to Peter later.)

Done in ink, text in photoshop. I hope to stay as traditional as possible with this project. Whole thing's due Nov. 8th.

Can I do it? 8D

Man, I missed you posting the whole comic! But, it all worked out, it seems, based on your journal.

Weird as always, but whenever you do weird, it feels like, you know, its not strange for no reason. Heh, maybe you don't think so, though.

Thank you very much. :)
I um...yeah...that's just how my brain works. I can't write a normal story, because then I get bored. I never know how my comics will end. It's more of I have a script written out for them, but then my hand says, "But I wanna draw THIS!" and starts taking over and then weird things happen. Like, the demon sprouting out of Ecrus's shoulder in "Like Sand" was completely the comic taking over and deviating from the script, and the whole crack in the face and melting of James and Peter was another takeover. I'd planned for Peter to simply start leaking from the fingers, then James started cracking and Peter full on melted. Again, unplanned.

Well, normal stories are typically uninteresting. That's why they're normal.
Some people have talent to take a story, and change it as they go along. I use to think I did, but, nowadays... Nope, I don't. You apparently are able to do that. And more power to ya'. If it makes the story better, go for it!

Thanks very much! I still have trouble writing a freaking ending, though. Always have.

Tons of people do. I mean, a story almost always can keep going. There's just the challenge of figuring out when you've said all you really wanna.

:) Thanks. I never thought of it that way. I think you hit the nail on the head.
