    Default The Whale Fins Ch.0

    I wonder if anyone actually remembers this...

    A big thanks to everyone who commented on the last thread and gave me tons of super-helpful tutorials and links, I ended up decided to actually do a proper webcomic for WF!
    For a 'test run'/first practice I did a 5-page chapter that also serves as a quick prelude to the story proper, just to see how this 'how do I comic' thing goes - the whole learning process is pretty dang exciting and fun! You can't expect to nail everything on the first try, but a start is a start and I do like what I got in the end.










    Oh, look, Mol's there too!

    So what's next?
    The real story will begin from Ch.1 onwards and should start very soon! It will center around a human's adventure into the WF world and then some tidbits, and the general style will be that of P.5's. A minor downside of a webcomic is that it's going to take a bit before I can show who does what and what's going on though!

    So what do you guys think? Should I make regular page updates simultaneously with dA once Ch.1 (and beyond) goes live?

    That's one hella cool whale, I really like his design.

    I think I found a plot hole or multiple habitable planets exist in your story... In frame #3 the great whale's tail is seen above an earth-like landscape but in frame #5 he dies and the owl in frame #7 mentions his body formed the Earth we stand on.

    Frame #3 must be something of the past, a completely different world that wasn't formed from his body. Am I correct?

    I mean, mol doesn't specify that it's all life, just all monsters that formed from its blow holes, and nor do they specify what else shares their Earth

    The Whale Fins do believe worlds like these already exist before Star Whale died and became the world they live in, yeah. Adding to the fact that creation myths in general are pretty unreliable to begin with...
    The credibility of the lore should be taken with a grain of salt, that's what I think - monsters are simple and they can't grasp big ideas such as planets or space like we do. The truth behind Star Whale and WFs will be explored in a later part of the planned story.

    I draw everything with Inkscape, it's free! It's also vector-based so things are quite different than software like GIMP or Photoshop.

    This thread's hit my bookmark in part because I'm a sucker for high-fantasy, but mainly 'cause I was really hyped to see you of all people are doing a comic ^^. Looking forward to seeing what fantastical stuff comes out of this in the future!
