Title: Fairy Dust ~ Dodom's new webcomic
Post by: Dodom on April 14, 2012, 08:48:59 pm
Look, it's not that I don't love HQ, but it's a fanfic, it's always a bit of an embarrassment to be doing something that I didn't really create, and to answer "well, you have to read that other comic first" when people ask me where they can find it. I'm not closing it officially, but really, having an original webcomic feels a lot better, so I can't foresee going back to it. (I will mention it in the Corpse Soap thread, would be rude to leave it hanging. And eventually, I'll leave the archive up to date.)

So remember when I said that I felt tempted to write a comic about trollfairies? Well, I really wanted to do it. But don't worry, the only trollfairy there is is six years old in the first chapter, so she just looks like a big messy fairy with a weird face, she won't look like the grotesque monster you saw before puberty, and there are at least three chapters to go before that happens.
I promised Cass not to seriously advertise the comic before it had ten pages, well I was super nice and waited until it had ELEVEN! Man I'm wild! So, link:
Fairy Dust (http://fairydust.thecomicseries.com/)

With all the mythical creatures, you guessed that it's fantasy. It's also set in a modern world, although the main characters live on an island where most inhabitants are primitive aboriginals. That comic is flagged for violence, and there's some nudity too but no direct fan service. Not even a fat hairy troll crotch shot, and I know how much you guys wanted to see that!

Congrats Dodom! :D
I loved watching your art progress and improve from the first HQ you did! HQ being a good practice piece before venturing out to do your own project will make it all the better BELIEVE ME. I wish I did some practice before starting TZH!

"it's always a bit of an embarrassment to be doing something that I didn't really create, and to answer "well, you have to read that other comic first"
Lollolol. I have to admit that it was always a bit embarrassing to me when I would tell peeps about the fanatic that updates WAY more frequently and has a BIGGER and AWESOMER archive than TZH. ;) Heheh.


Goooodluuuuck! Greg and I will be reading =D

I don't feel ready to have an official schedule, but I think I should update about twice a week. It has elaborate background art and the pages are large, so it can't be daily, but it's also shorter to do than something coloured. Right now I'm updating a little more often than that, but I'm putting a little more in because I'm getting it started, it should settle down a little.

Can I ask you guys for a little help?
Not much, but I'm working on a new layout for Fairy Dust, and I'd like some opinions. The current one looks sweet but it's a pre-made template and eventually if you're serious you want something individual.
I'm going for something mostly black and white because the comic is black and white, but also colourful and psychedelic, because the eponymous fairy dust is like evil LSD.

I created a pseudo-comic page to work on the layout, here: http://3141592654.thecomicseries.com/ (http://3141592654.thecomicseries.com/)
Hopefully nobody will be creating a comic called "the nine decimals of pi" before I'm done, delete that site, and free the url.
I'll only create the English version after I'm done with the rest, sorry about that, I prefer not to have to bother about translating my words while I'd rather focus on everything else. I only created one of the extra pages, since one should be enough to display the layout. It's behind the "Univers" link, and if you look at the wall of text you know why I didn't finish the others first. Yeah there's still quite some work to do over there. The off-center background image is also on my to-do list.
So what I need to know:
- Does everything work? If some elements appear in completely illogical places, that counts as not working, only the background image is supposed to be surrealistic, not the placement of DIV blocks.
- Is the design obnoxious?

If you want to READ the comic, well I didn't re-upload everything on the temporary location, so either use the link up here in the OP, or view the layout in construction in this post and click the "English" link under the banner, which points to the current - active - version.

Looks good to me. It's straightforward and easy to navigate. The color adds, but isn't distracting IMO.

Kind of wish I could think of something to critique so it wouldn't seem like I'm giving the generic half-hearted thumbs-up, but *shrug* you did a good job.
