Episode 33: Nuts Make Me Giggle

Ok. My apologies to anyone who is now ashamed of writing. But yes, I do snicker at nuts. Originally, this was just gonna be like the other zone overviews, but I had to do the nut quest and well...snicker...I'm sorry but it makes me laugh. If you don't laugh, you must be a commi terrorist hippe. You bastard.

But hey, I've also done some other work with the comic too. No, not with Model Viewer, but with paper and pencil!

So this is a rough sketch of the face. For the life of me I could not get the eyes to not look retarded, so I just left them out for now. One of the hardest things for me with hand drawing is I'm very hard on myself and end up throwing out alot of my work. But I've decided its about time I start showing my work as it progresses.

The general face design I'm pretty cool with, although a fair amount of work still has to go into it. This is my first real shot at a body design. I'll be honest, I'm terrible with bodies. I really am. So this was my first real shot at it. Drawing the shoulder pads first actually really helped alot, but there's still a fair amount of clean up to go. You can also see my notes on the sides. I think they fit.

And some quick attempts at inking it in photoshop. This is gonna take some practice. I feel like too much was lost. And the eyes are just for the sake of having eyes. And I still have to color this...shudder.

But there you go, a little insight as to my scheming.

Episode 32: I See Dead Dragons

And so the Notes From Northrend continue with a stop over in Dragonblight. Although I don't enjoy these as much as I enjoy making the regular comics, I'm finding making these filler moments adds a little more fun to my leveling experience. Yes, I'm still not lvl 80...only lvl 76. Sadly I have not had as much time as I would like to play. But hey, now you get to watch my nonsense.

And there shouldn't be any diabetes related controversy in this one. Maybe some of the typical naked dwarf stuff though...

Episode 31: Tuskarr Troubles

Sometimes I look back at my writing and just wonder if I'm getting too carried away sometimes. Maybe it would be a good idea to stop writing these late at night...

So I really like the Tuskarr. In all honesty they were one my favorite additions to WoW when Wrath dropped. I know the Etherals were the cool thing back in tbc, but to be honest, I could kinda care less about them. I had no problem killing those bastards and farming them. Now I was having a good time with the Tuskarr until I came across a little section of the Dragonblight that happened to have some hostile Tuskarr. Panic struck my mind. Was I gonna have to kill these gentle roly polies? I despreately hoped that I would have to do some quest that would get them on my side and not result in a butchering of these oversized baby seals. Sigh, no luck. Because Malygos, the blue bastard, had to go and start shit, I had to commit a genocide on par with gassing a puppy.

Oh its on now you rat bastard. I'm coming to your little raid instance and I'm gonna lay the smack down on your ass for all those poor little tuskarr and hell is coming with me!
