Queen of Birds (7-page comic) by kajoi Queen of Birds (7-page comic) by kajoi
Sorry for the long+big file! But I felt it would be easiest to submit it like this... (thanks *muura for the suggestion!). And sorry if some of the text is hard to read, let me know if you can't make out something....

I am posting the comic today in hopes that people are busy making doomsday jokes, because erm, I am not super proud of this comic...but I promised to post it because I need to get over my need to be perfect. So let's just say this is a warm-up for my future comic projects that will surely be a lot better!

This comic was made for a tiny comic zine created by my classmates and it was done in a great hurry so that's why everything is pretty compressed (too much text in some places, too tight panels etc) and minimalistic backgrounds (the castle is referenced too). Also I guess the comic doesn't explain well enough what the spell thing is but it simply allows people to be changed into birds....and I guess my original idea was that the birds would get all the gold from the people who failed and so the treasure would grow and grow, until someone would pass the test.

I mean don't take this comic too seriously though, it's supposed to be a very stupid one anyway. ARGHhhh okay I need to stop being sorry that this thing exists, I should be happy that I made it and that's it, it is what it is, moving on. My next project is a story about my original characters, and it will be maybe 20-30 pages long, not sure yet.

Oh yeah and all the comic artists were given a Tarot card to make it easier to create a story, and mine was the Empress. If you know the meaning of the card, then I guess you can kind of see where I'm coming from with the story.

I know you said you don't care for it, but I really enjoyed reading this comic. :) It had a neat twist, and I liked the art. I don't think you need to feel bad because it's got a simple story or it wasn't your best effort or whatever. It was very entertaining.

Hahah based on the first image I wasn't expecting it to be humorous at all! I think you did a good job with it. The drawings are beautiful even if you did rush them!

I'm so excited to see your original characters *3*

Hahah yeah the first page is intentionally over-the-top serious XD I'm glad you like it! To be honest I'm a bit surprised how well people have reacted to the comic ;A; :heart: I thought I'd get like no favs or anything...

Yeah, I am a bit bad at drawing my own characters, sadly >_> even though I have plenty...I guess it's because I know I can't tell all of their stories in a looooong time :sniff: well, I guess this will be changed when I finally start my webcomic, though the cast in it is a lot smaller than in my other projects...but I guess it's better to start this way :) I'll simply draw the few main characters over and over in that case XD

This was very amusing! The dude in the cloak turning out to be a bird was unexpected and the lady is very expressive! Even though it was very simple in some areas (as you mentioned the minimalistic backgrounds) I felt it didn't particularly need them to portray itself well. Everything else really made up for it.

I look forward to reading your next project, and I'm going to be sure of sharing this with some friends.

Thank you for taking the time to read and comment! Even though I am sometimes even a bit afraid of getting feedback on things I am not very proud of, I still like to know what people think :) Otherwise I won't have any idea how I succeeded: what people liked and what should I plan better next time.
And hahah, my alternative title for the comic was "The Main Character Making Funny Faces" :D
