I simply ran out of time to work on the comic this week. I completed the sketches earlier this week...but...well....I'll be honest....I lost my soul to Skyrim these past few days. Before I knew it Friday night had already rolled around and I hadn't even started the coloring. I'm just going to post this week's comic as a WIP. Maybe I'll come back to finish it sometime. The alternative was to finish it next week and have no update for today. I want to have something to post each week, even if it means this.

But I shouldn't have a problem next week. My Skyrim character is level 80 with only 1 more quest chain to finish, so I'll be done with he game soon. Plus I have something special planned for next week to make up for this week's sloppy work.

I still like it, no matter how it looks.

You know, I actually really like the sketch work you have here. In some ways it's actually a bit more... I donno, REAL then the colored comics. Not that I dislike the colored comics at all, but an occasional sketch instead of a comic in times of dire dovakin might not be a bad way to go.

Regardless, this comic made me giggle today. Way to be chivalrous, troll! :)

Hope you do finish this one eventually. Would like to see it finished.

A tentacle monster... "forcing" himself on a WAY underage girl. Is this manga I'm reading?

Would love to see this one finished eventually (we don't wanna have a "hole" in the storyline, now do we) but the sketching is great as a placeholder.

I actually planned a joke for that in #66 when Sara freaked out when Ulric reached for her chest, but it would have added several more panels on a comic that already took too long.

Also, I went through some old comics and realized you said on the anniversary comic that this comic probably wouldn't last another year. I just wanna say I think you have an unique and awesome style of humor and I hope you keep this comic alive for as long as possible.

The troll is almost saying "Bondage, please" to the undead chick... tee hee.

Heh...I saw that, too. Hence why I typed very careful not to typo when doing the text for that one.

I was wondering what happened two those two (or rather, how they fit into the gnome's plan).

Anyway, the comic actually looks really good today. I dunno, but would you believe me if i said that, to me, it looks as if you put more effort into it today than in the previous days? After reading today's, I think I know what was different when you changed styles. I think that the shadowing was perhaps inadvertently changed when you decided to try out the new style(if not the shadowing, maybe the color scheme?). Something about how you put in the shading/shadows looks better in the older version made it look more professional and better.

Anyway, that's just my opinion. Thanks for listening to my comics, and (as Mo mentioned) I sincerely hope you continue drawing for as long as possible.

Ah young Dovakin, did you not want to go all uber god and use the book of Ohgma Infinium? You could have been to 81 in your first day! Lol, that's ok, me either. Though my hubby used it on his main character because he was in too much of a hurry to wear Deadric armor. I unfortunetly have to start over from scratch since I decided to get the PC version of Skyrim to save the many hours of fighting over the xbox.

Love the comic even in it's sketched state. The tentacle rape reference was funny I have to admit. Can't wait till it shows up colored, but will wait for that as long as there is a new one up next week too. Fus Rah Doh and Peace out!

Nah, its more gratifying doing things legit. The PC version is even more cheap since you can just use console commands and give yourself 81 levels and a full deadric armor set with just a few minutes of typing, heh. It doesn't even involve exploiting a glitch like with the Ohgma Infinium.

Forgot to add in last comment, but in the panel with all the kids preparing to attack, is that a pitchfork in the background, or Richard's Fork of Truth? Or is that just something random?
Clef 26th Feb 2012, 9:32 AM edit delete reply
That would be the Sinister Eye Poker of Doom. As seen in the first Pirates of The Caribbean movie.
Sesshy (Muradin) 26th Feb 2012, 9:10 PM edit delete reply
The wha? Never heard of it nor recall a fork in the eye or any reference towards. Then again it's been awhile since I watched the movie so I may have to watch it again.

D'awww how sweet to protect the living impaired girl
Kaiser 26th Feb 2012, 6:19 AM edit delete reply
Huh, the sketch makes the forsaken girl look more alive...anyway awesome job with the troll's expressions. Wide eyed and then shrunk exhausted eyes xD. Simply awesome.

Not to mention the Fuuuu moment =P

Please Clef come back and color this one. I still enjoyed the adventures though.

Mother of God, I've had Skyrim for a couple of months now and my character is only 40 and I still got a crapload of quest chains to do. You sir are some kind of power-gaming fiend. :P

Bethesda's games are the power gamer's greatest challenge, yet this guy ended skyrim in around 3 or 4 months?!
Quite a power gamer indeed!

At first I thought the troll was pushing the forsaken girl in front of him to attempt to block the stampede of kids. they must have gotten to know each other pretty well during their time in the gnome's backpack.

We are getting some serious high-quality scribbles here. Amazing!

Looks magnificent - I specially enjoyed Tallias expression in panel 1, Fordring in panel 4 and the overall looks of the undead girl.

And by mentioning "Fuuuu"... where's Yao Ming hiding? =D

funny, the fact Tirion turned children against the gnome is priceless too, it was perfect! goes to show everybody hates gnomes! now if only blizzard would catch on...

I'd be more than happy to see the gnome's neck sliced wide open to an instant kill! DEATH TO THE GNOMES!

I cant belive the tentacle rape reference though... O.O WTF?! that's disgusting even for a gnome!

Panel 2: Falling damage?

Sadly ironic if the trampling horde squashes Sara & Kleeyo in their Gnomish pursuit.
The silly zealot 2nd Mar 2012, 11:51 PM edit delete reply
Whats so bad about getting killed by your own kin if you end up respawning with only minimal armor damage?
Aramir 31st Mar 2015, 11:45 AM edit delete reply
High Points to Tirion here for instead of helping his people (who were clearly under attack), calmly took advantage of the crazy situation to rally the children into bonding against the old god gnome rogue.
