Random comic #2 – A trainer’s field of vision

pokemon alpha ruby saphire omega comic parody nintendo fan art comics torchic silly

Expect some Zelda logic in the future…

I will be making some comics about ‘Nintendo Logic’ in video games. Even if your not a gamer, I will the make humor understandable to everyone. Pokemon is.. strange. Why does every person in the universe attack me while I’m walking along a route, minding my own business?  It doesn’t matter who the person is: A trainer, a chef, a officer, a fisherman, a stay-at-home mom, an artist, the president of a large pharmaceutical : they will stick their pet pokemon on me faster then Justin Bieber’s fading career. You’re stuck in a world obsessed with capturing innocent creatures and forcing them into cage fights. Nintendo logic at it’s best. But this weirdness is what I love about Nintendo.

Sorry for the lack of updates, but I had things in my life that I needed to take care of. It’s be a tough couple of weeks. First I had a exam that was a 1/3 of my grade. Then when I came home  my dad had to be rushed to the hospital. We thought he was having a stroke but thankfully it was not a stroke. However he is fine now even though he is still having issues with his eye.  I just haven’t felt like working on any comics. I was very stressed.  I am trying to get back into a grove (which is very hard for me). If things don’t get in my way, expect to see more comics later in the week.

Alex 3d Model WIP

The new 3d model of Alex . Still a WIP, but good enough to start doing tests and comics with. He is closer to the original design I did over a year ago http://maugryph.com/2013/02/18/dean-the-dragon-finished-3d-model-scene-lighting-and-animation-test/. I returned his skin color to a yellowish orange, and added the red fills that I was to lazy to do with the last model. I shortened his snout to make his expressions easier to read. I did a short talking animation test. I will upload that shortly.  Cruz is also ready, I will upload screenshots of the new model as well.

Careful Maybe

Kung Fooy

dragon kung fu chopHello everyone. Hopefully your week is going well.  The moral of this story is to never put carpet in your house :D.  My partner in crime and I are working on some short stories for our characters. So ‘eventually you will see story comics on certain days of the week. But we will continue to do single gag comics on sun/mon like always. We are excited to put these characters in amusing situations 😀 You will see concept art being uploaded to the blog in the coming month.

Primed Dancer

comic-18

My friend Cruz loves Amazon Prime, almost as much as Darth Vader.  While I like the free shipping  that comes with it, you have to buy $100 worth of shipping to make it practical. I don’t buy that much on amazon. Cruz thinks the streaming video options on Prime are better then Netflix.  I disagree.  However compared to Netflix, Prime is cheaper by $20 annually but you have to pay it all upfront. To each their own. – Alex the Dragon

Hats off to this comic..

comic-17The irony of this comic is…. how would a dragon be able to wear a hat?
In our own glorious stupidity.. we forgot to do a comic last week. So with my brilliant wisdom (I was hit in the head) we decided to do four comics ahead of time and then the next week we will do four more, rinse and repeat. -Alex the dragon
