Time Finds Death

Death in China

Time confronts Death about the situation.

This comic is a week late. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to get it done until today due to finals, some family stuff and the fact I had to do a lot of researching for this strip. This particular strip is set in the Zhou Dynasty of China and there was very little information online (at least, that I could find) about Zhou architecture and clothing. (And I’ve taken a class about the arts of China. Apparently most of the surviving art from this period are bronze vessels and such.)

However, starting today I will be publishing weekly comic strips again. This will last throughout the summer.

Bye!

Time doesn't explain and disappears.

Time isn’t being particularly helpful.

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.

Arriving Home

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.
