Digital [Comic] The Whale Fins Ch.1

    Since it’s been awhile since I joined the forum, I figured this would be a decent time for me to put these here.


    -The Whale Fins-

    What started off as a simple OC-verse starring animal hybrid monsters turned art practice, The Whale Fins is now my ongoing original comic(as ongoing as I can manage, that is) – it’s a very ‘watch things unfold’ kind of story, that’s what I’m hoping to achieve - but other than that I want to focus on adventure and exploration in a somewhat fantasy setting as well.

    Chapter 0 was a 'test run' that also served as a quick, 5-page prelude of the main story, briefly explaining the basic lore of the Whale Fins.

    Alright so, this is how I plan the general style of the comic to be. Chapter 1 is currently at page 8 and a total of 17 pages are planned - I'll put them up shortly. All completed pages are up in my dA page so for those who don't want to wait, you can read the rest there.

    Before that though, I would like to hear your opinion on this! As I mentioned, I started this as an art practice and it still is, try to think of this as a personal project to see how far I can push myself so, every bit of comment, criticism and suggestion help! I also welcome any questions regarding background and characters and whatnot, though I might not answer them properly if they are related to future story plot (aka, spoilers!).

    These are the completed pages so far, thank you for your attention! I'm glad to say drawing has resumed - can't make out when it'll be done but I hope it's very soon.

    Another filler! When will this madness end?

    Just a note, the next two months will probably the craziest busiest months I'll have since a long time, so update would likely be rather slow for now. Hopefully I can get one more drawing done in my other thread before the crazy starts. Now for the next announcement...

    thewhalefins.thecomicseries.com

    WF now has its own site, hosted on Comic Fury (it's free!)! The site layout is completely customizable and I think it's pretty comfortable on the eyes. I've set it so the old pages were gradually uploaded on a 2-day basis but it will catch up to the current progress this Friday, woo! So if you're interested, you can take a look too to see if it's a better place to read the pages.

    With 50+ days in there I sure hope there'd be something to eat other than questionably poisonous berries and dirt :v

    Aw gee has it really been two months? I was too occupied with school work and experiments and looks like it's going to stay that way for a while.
