Scrapped Comic #3.5: RuneSpark, Take Two

And for our final entry, we have basically a second draft of Runespark, which would have been basically a more playful take on the story I already started.  I think at this point I was just burnt out, and the art and story just didn’t turn out quite the way I wanted it to.

Scrapped Comic #3: Runespark

Here we come full-circle into a version of my Punk-Pink! remake, RuneSpark.  At this point I was kinda trying to avoid hitting the readers with blatant fanservice, going for a more cutesy, old cartoon-style of storytelling.  It begins with Li (Tenkyo, from Punk-Pink!) singing a nursery rhyme “Kings of Old”, which more or less tells a bit of her homeland’s history.  She’s picked up by Phillip Marco, also a character from Punk-Pink!, who had just purchased a magic-powered car.  They discuss the sudden prominence of magic-powered technology, and Marco is curious about the basket Li carried on her back, to which she responds that it’s for a magic show.  As you can see, with four comics inked and two in the burner, I got a lot farther with this one before I started to realize that the story was going nowhere.  I don’t think it’s unsalvageable, though, and I may actually put this one aside for later…

Where have I been? Where have YOU been?

Alright guys, so 12 days without an update… I know I had a bad habit of doing this with Punk-Pink!, and I really don’t plan on repeating that.  Just to explain where I HAVE been, though, I’ve been spending the days trying to come up with a new webcomic series, one that’s more strip-style, easier to produce, and less intrusive on my everyday life.  It ultimately became a session of rapid-fire comic-making,in the hopes I’d finally land on something I liked.  Unfortunately, the biggest challenge is always coming up with an idea you can really get in to, and I still haven’t found anything along those lines.  It looks like I’ll be giving up webcomicking, at least for a while.  But as I’ve missed a couple days, I think it’s only fair that I show you a few of the ideas and tell you a bit about them.
