Aging

Time ages and taunts Helena.

Drawing Helena’s hair down and an aging Time was surprisingly difficult.

A Chat About Humans

Time and Death discuss Helena.

I had fun with the backgrounds in this strip. They’re meant to convey the mood of the conversation.

Why Would I Do That?

Death laments his drunken decisions.

Death laments his drunken purchases and Time tells it like it is.

(And is it possible that Time feels a little bad for Death in the last panel?)

Hungover Realizations

Death realizes he might have a drinking problem...maybe.

Death starts to realize he may have a problem…maybe. And Time is already sick of Death’s nonsense.

Side note: In this strip the background panels that don’t feature the kitchen are supposed to represent the character’s emotions. Time’s anger and Death’s wooziness/lightheaded feeling brought on by “Oh My Goodness, What Have I Done?”

Well Then.

Death is hungover and Helena makes bread while Time watches.

This is it! The beginning of a new arc!

Meanwhile, Death is hungover and confused.

Half Comic: Home

Time goes into Death's house with Helena following after.

This half comic marks the end of the Roman Arc!

Arriving Home

deities-83

The Roman arc has almost ended! There is just one more half comic to go.

The reason why Time refers to Helena as an “it” is because he sees humans a bit like dogs. They have personalities, fears and such, but they’re still not as smart as the deities. Death however, sees humans as more on the same level as deities. They just don’t live as long. Death is aware of the fact that humans, on average, are not incredibly bright, although he is reluctant to admit this.

Half Comic: Iulius’ Error

deities-82-5

Iulius realizes he’s just sold Helena to a complete stranger.

I haven’t done one in a long time, but sometimes I do half comics. In these half comics they have information that is necessary to the story, but the themes aren’t big enough for it’s own comic. Sometimes they are just little amusing bits. Generally speaking, I like to experiment with colors and styles and such, so that’s why “Iulius’ Error” has such an odd color scheme.

Leaving The Party

deities-82

Helena is forcibly removed from Iulius’s house and handed over to Death.

As this subject is a serious one, I decided to go the dark humor route. This includes Iulius quite literally kicking Helena out the door.

On a side note, I’m pleased with the shadows and lighting in the last three panels. Time’s arm looks a bit strange, but whatever.

The Sale

deities-81

Death’s first drunken purchase. And yes, that sack of money wasn’t there when Death came in. (The deities have the ability to make things out of nothing. Unlike some of the other deities (God and Mother Nature) Death can only make inanimate/non living things appear. Theoretically Death can make life as well, but he has to do it…manually.)
