This was an interesting bit. So, to make it more like a storybook while retaining the comics general style, I just did a few things differently (because it can be really difficult to change up your style with a limited amount of time). So, my attempt was to, sketch it like I would normally. Ink it using a different Pen Type, color it using no fill tools! o_O Yeah, that makes it take a lot more time, but it gives it more of a “hand drawn feel” even though it is always hand drawn. More painting in general for details, don’t polish it too much, while also limiting extra details. I did try to go even further, but I have to put a bit of a cap on how long something takes to get done, otherwise, comics would be late all the time making future pages later and later into a cascading mess of never updating and always working.
That all said, coming up with the stories was fun too. I even have a 3rd story but I needed a Negative and a Positive, not a Negative and 2 sad positives!
I’ll be streaming tonight at 8pm EDT over at Picarto.tv/SageSaga!
Tough luck, bandit!
Man: I wish to be left alone
Kitsune: Nah, love, have a kitsune waifu instead.
Soooo, I guess I need to work on my hiking and mountain climbing skills. lol
Oh. That bandit was a total idiot! How much time you have left to live indicator that changes according to your intended actions can be very, very useful, but he set it to 0 by attacking a mythic beast way, way stronger than himself.
Should have set it to react to his intentions so he had a few moments to comprehend howuch he fucked up
It’s a bandit. He got off lightly compared to what he deserves from a wish-granting kitsune.
I have no doubt the situation would have ended the same. But being able to see the clock rapidly decreasing as he chose his worlds would have been much more enlightening. As it stood I don’t even think the fool would have even knew how he died
Alas, poor bandit, we hardly knew thee.
Give people want they need, not what they want…
I like this method of wish fulfillment…
Gives hungry person enforceable legislation to curtail industrial dragnet fishing (it’s magical after all)… and a fishing rod.
Pretty sure both got what they had earned
Now I’m interested to know what the third story would have been.
These stories very much catch the ‘benevolent trickster’ side of kitsune! 🙂
In panel 5, wouldn’t that be “You who trespasses”, because “You who” is the subject? I’m guessing the shrine Kitsune would intend formal speech.
