The mumblings of Mary - A Don't Starve art and comic thread.

Recommended Posts

An on-going comic series that I plan to do using traditional media - it follows a general story based around the meanings of the names and, more specifically, the letter they start with. Alongside that I might post up sketches or pieces of story that enters my brain-case.

Without further ado, here is page 1!

Transcript:

Maxwell: Say, pal...

Stay awake...

Maxwell: You don't look so darn good!

Maxwell: Maybe...

Maxwell:...You should've JUST FOLLOWED ORDERS like the others did...

Where am I? Is that...a flower?

Maxwell: You had to fight though...and I like that. You've got a strong spirit, for sure.

Got to stay awake...

Who is he?

Where am I?

Maxwell: You better find your way quick - before night...*trails off*

Help me...

Thanks for the feedback so far! I've done a couple more pages that I've kept around, and I'm working on the other pages now. ^^

Hopefully you'll excuse my...not-so-brilliant drawing skills. I'm not used to drawing this large and usually zoom out when drawing digitally.

TRANSCRIPT:

Wilson: Hm...

Wilson: Is this a new game? Throw a dead body in my tracks just to spook me? You must be running out of ideas, Puppeteer, to try something as bland as this.

Dead Body? I am NOT DEAD, sir!

Girl: NOT...DEAD...

Transcript:

Wilson: I don't know if you can hear me...I hope you can, since you have my jumper...

Wilson: But you have three days to show any signs of recovery.

Wilson: It seems a bit harsh, doing this to a young lady like yourself -

Wilson: - after all, a gentleman should be a gracious host, especially to a lady.

Wilson: But if I have to...end your suffering, do not think of me as a foul person, as a monster.

Wilson: There are far worse monsters out there than I.

Wilson: Trust me.

Survival scenarios are harsh things to deal with, especially when you really don't want to face the facts.And it almost sounds to me like this particular version of Wilson has been in this world long enough to have been slowly accepting the fact that, in order to survive, he must take on the mask of a monster as is needed. This could be supported by the inhumane shadow he now gives off. It's sad to think about, really...

I love the thought that's being put into this and I'm really, really happy to see that people like the comic. Personally, I'm pretty sure I'm not the best artist out there on the forums but people enjoying the comic, and giving their thoughts...it's really inspiring me to keep going with this!So thank you, guys!

Hey, whenever you have the balls to bring to the table anything done in a traditional medium (whatever that may be), you tend to get a little bit more respect than those that stick to digital mediums only, primarily because it's a pain in the rear to correct any mistakes you may make.

Haha, I learnt that the hard way with that page. I should really do the background -first- next time. ^^"EDIT: Just a little disclaimer, since people have been asking me ever since I put up the previous page: Wilson, in this setting, is not about to turn into some sort of horrific, half-man-half-demon monster. The shadow did not actually belong to him - it was something reaching out of the shadows.

post-36128-13764598096898_thumb.jpgJust something I quickly drew up on account of a lack of pages.The next one is half-done, but I keep looking at it and not liking it...I'm sorry for the wait.I expect as my summer holidays finish, you'd be expecting a page per week if I'm not too busy but I will keep everyone up to date.I'll probably keep drawing art too, so I will happily take requests and stuff if you have any. ^^"
