Epilogue 09
Kaza's Mate Gwenna
Epilogue
Page 9 of 12


The Danielle Gwenna is talking about was featured in a piece of fan art I did for Pow! Right in the Nostalgia! as part of a request that comic's creator had for various extended family members. So she made her first comic appearance in PRITN though now I am tempted to have her show up in the jungle.

Quick little status update: I've been working on a few more pages for Epilogue. It's going to end up being 12 pages  all together.I've also got a couple stories in process, but whether they see the light of day any time soon is another matter.

I'm really looking to get back to basics with Kaza and Gwenna. They've been all over the place lately,I just want to get them back to what they are about: adventures in the jungle.
Captain Califonia
Now here's an obscurity for you.

Hero High was a short lived animated series from Filmation (the company most known for He-Man and She-Ra) that aired on NBC during the 1981-82 season. Captain California and his girlfriend Glorious Gal were the pretty blonde nice kids who were at odds with emerging bad guy Rex Ruthless and his partner in crime Dirty Trixie.

The Captain's only apparent powers come from his seemingly sentient, flying surfboard called Wipeout.  He mostly just flies around and leaves all the heavy lifting to Glorious Gal.

Doctor Del Cordo
I guess this is a sort of character redesign.

I've been watching episodes of Super President this goofy 60's super hero cartoon where the President of the United States happens to be super hero who sneaks out of the White  House to go fight fight monsters and punch bad guys.

One of the few recurring bad guys was this mad scientist Professor De Cordo. The cartoon made him look like some kind of alien with green skin. I decided to try and make him more human, dumping the green skin and exaggerated features for the more classically sinister Nehru jacket. Though I have to admit he's ended up looking quite a bit like 70's Sean Connery.

Drunken Anime Girl
While Ghastly of Ghastly's Ghastly Comic hasn't done much with his comic recently, he's still doing some art on occasion.

Lately he's discovered the MakeGirlsMoe app that has an AI generate random anime girl characters. Some of the girls that come out of it are cute enough, some are horrifyingly derpy, but he likes the ones that are a little off kilter and look like the girls have been drinking too much. So I followed his example and drew this girl, who looked like she had a few sheets in the wind.

Fried shrimp explosion tutorial
Somebody showed this trick with a simple gif, but I thought it might be useful to show off the steps for how to turn fried foods into explosions.

Epilogue 07
Kaza's Mate Gwenna
Epilogue
Page 7 of 12

Anotehr page made  primarily out of older art. Only the last panel is new.

The explosive effect is a Photoshop trick I picked up. You take a picture of fried foods on a white background (in this case, fried shrimp) invert the image and then adjust the color to an orange-red. Then apply a zoom blur and you have a big fireball.

There is an MST3K comic book coming out in September and they are going to be riffing public domain comic books.

There better be some Fletcher Hanks in there somewhere.
I found this funny little interview show The Skinny Dip where the host and all the guests get naked in a pool while having an interview. It's a fun idea I might just steal it for a webcomic. We'll have some host interviewing webcomic and cartoon characters naked in a pool.
Comic Fury Con Exchange: Waste of Time 03

For this Crossover Exchange I got Waste of Time ( a comic which I had previously done for the 2017 Valentine's Exchange) Since the theme was conventions, I went with the cosplay meetup thing.

While I hadn't really established it in continuity. I have always played with the idea of Gwenna being a big Jane Austen fan, I suggested it once in the Pow! Right in the Nostalgia crossover, but this is the first time I've really made mention of it.

For this Crossover Exchange I got Waste of Time ( a comic which I had previously done for the 2017 Valentine's Exchange) Since the theme was conventions, I went with the cosplay meetup thing.

And yes, I did reuse some of my characters from my Doctor Who Babylon 5 crossover comic (including Waldo)

Curtis ''Hound Dog'' Murphy
I did this as part of a Comic Fury 30 Days of Characters challenge. I'm a fan of Joe Lansdale's famous novella "Bubba Ho-Tep" where a geriatric Elvis in hiding finds himself fighting a mummy in a senior living center. It's a fun idea, but I thought about doing something different with the concept, so instead we have one of those chracters Elvis always played in his movies fighting a mummy.

Curtis "Hound Dog" Murphy is just your typical red-blooded American archeologist/race car driver who's come to Egypt to race in the Suez Grand Prix and open this supposedly cursed tomb. All the while he's romancing this local gal with his amazing singing voice. Of course that undead mummy he released from the tomb thinks she's the reincarnation of this long dead Egyptian Princess, and so he's got to save the day.

It's been almost two weeks since I posted anything, that will be changing soon. I have a three page Comic Fury crossover exchange story that will be dropping later today, plus the reciprocal fan art. I've also been working on the next page of the Epilogue story, which should be coming soon. That story should be wrapping up fairly soon and I'll have Kaza and Gwenna headed back to the jungle, since it's been quite a while since we've seen them in the natural habitat.
Kokoro (Ghosts 'n Goblins OC)
I was playing around with an OC created by Dinobolt6.  The character was inspired by the old Capcom platformer Ghosts 'n Goblins and it's various sequels. Your character in those games was this armored knight who fought monsters and if he took damage he'd loose his armor and end up fighting in his underwear.

Kokoro does have armor, but like the other Ghost 'n Goblins heroes she does have a problem with loosing it in battle.

Loading...
I am getting a few ideas for my Superwoman OC. Right now I'm thinking she'll be the modern day great-granddaughter of the Golden Age Superman (maybe the version seen in the Max Fleischer cartoons.) 
Remember Tharia of Mars? My daughter of John Carter who went to Earth to fight Nazis?  Well, MCRE1201 liked the idea so much he did this awesome cover piece.
