My dear I don't read what's stored in your mind. I hear present thoughts.

Picking up information that flow through my world is they key to control.

Words must be read carefully, they possess great value in this comic. [insert cryptic Miss here]

Fair point. I understand the dynamics you are trying to convey: I just need to learn to choose my words more carefully when dealing with crypic Miss. Especially since you say you know your way around an ubersaw.

On an unrelated note: you've previously mentioned that you have all of the dialogue planned out already for this particular comic. How many pages do you think we can expect to see? You're putting a lot of care into word choice and foreshadowing with comments, so I'd like to think we have many pages to look forward to in the future.

The comic is stored in my head as "movie format" :p I play it over and over again and pick the frames I like and turn them into artwork. The meaning and consequence of their dialogues are planned but I sometimes spend 1-2 days refining that into words.This way it's hard to tell how many pages the story will require. It's a sensitive balance between telling a story but not reveal too much information at the same time. I think I've accomplished about 50% by now, I could expand the story but it depends irl stuff such as studies and job.

Haha glad to see some fellow Maxwell fans :DI was thinking of making a tutorial about the style I use in the comic. That will of course interrupt the production speed of upcoming pages but I think it's worth it if many people wonder how I get things done. Edited by Miss

You don't have to worry yourself, I'm just in love with your style of art! I've recently started drawing these characters, and Maxwell is the hardest of them all for me. You make it look so easy!

Line up multiple Maxwell's on a paper and give each one a different style. Pick the one you're most satisfied with :D

I just read through this and i am impressed.

Why thank you! :wilson_smile:

Here's a picture totally unrelated to Don't Starve but I thought people may be curious to see the artist behind all this. (TheOnlyHorse is my DeviantArt account name)

Pretty legs, all 4 of them XD

The best thing about being a woman and centaur, I don't need to shave my legs :]

Is this called Rack? I don't know the english word. The way the horse moves, like galop and trot. And a magical paintbrush ^^

It's slow and collected trot. Not going too fast with my precious rainbow brush :D

i'd rather be a cat and sleep all day long X3

You know that sounds like a pretty good idea xD

I'm content being a raccoon XD

What benefits does a raccoon have? :3

Centaurs are cool: I like fauns, myself, since you'd have springy goat legs to jump around with. It would make mountain climbing a blast! Though I am concerned with the fact that my avatar is already a prehistoric crocodile: hopefully there wouldn't be crossover between the two. That would be an... unpleasant combo, to say the least. One animal/mythical beast at a time. :)

Missed page 9 until now...and all I can say is-Did Wilson just slice Maxwell's face with a piece of his own rib cage?!?!

Oh, THANKS for having me wanna look that part over and make me need more painkillers. x.x Owie owie owie...And, whatever it was in Wilson's hand, he actually caught Maxwell in the neck with the sharp end, not the face....and I'm also sure that if I had been in Wilson's place while sprawled out like that, not only would I be out like a light, Maxwell not reading the mind would be prevention of a massive headache...there are people that seem capable of maintaining several trains of thought at once while out cold.

It was a piece of flint that was laying on the ground near Wilson's crash site. You find all these questions in my DevinatArt journal http://theonlyhorse.deviantart.com/journal/Don-t-Starve-Comic-Questions-and-Answers-380949681 I recommend reading it, there's some interesting stuff ^^

*gives painkiller* Free of charge!Wilson used a piece of flint ;) I gave a link to Lord_Battal above, you'll find more interesting stuff about the comic there.

I'll continue to draw as the story reaches its end ^^ And thank you for the comment, I really appreciate when users write what they think about the comic! I will most certainly draw all characters of Don't Starve, but they are not in the script for this comic. But there's nothing stopping me from drawing more comics and fan art after this :D

SPEAKING OF COMICS! Scroll down at your own risk, it's not very child friendly...

PAGE 9

http://theonlyhorse.deviantart.com/art/Don-t-Starve-Comic-Page-9-382208650

"Maxwell gently promises that everything will be just like before, but not does he mention what that involves... Wilson, twisting in pain and agony, has his newly grown wings ripped straight off the back. After what feels like an eternity Wilson is dropped on the ground, cold and bleeding. Maxwell begins to take back the powers he granted Wilson to prevent him from using them any further. Satisfied Maxwell reclaims the other half of what belongs to him. Entirely sure that Wilson is unconscious he does the mistake of not listening to thoughts. Nobody can have the will to fight after this, why would I care while thriving in success?"

Wow, Quite speechless at Maxwells Buttheadness, Lovely and erie art here! But I wonder what happens next?
