Felt like doing a thing with a magical lady.
Come this September, The Wizard of Quippley will begin its triumphant fourth year. Each year I try to bring a fresh direction to the comic, whether a new chapter in the story, or a new take on the character’s looks. Take a look at the new designs for the main characters. Some new characters will be introduced as well, and of course, plenty of surprises. I will post full color versions of these soon.
Those of you who follow the comic’s twitter or Facebook page got a sneak peak to the following silliness. On a whim I decided to draw what I think Algerbane would look like had he lived in the Old West. I figured he’d be a sheriff, with a gun instead of a stave (since they all had guns, I suppose)–though I did sneak him a magic ring. Take a gander below (clicky for large):
Here’s a sketch of Al, sans hat, possibly at the ol’ saloon:
I really got a kick out of this lil’ diversion. I wish I could come up with a fun western comic, but I don’t think I know enough about the era to make it believable. Yes, I don’t really know enough about the middle ages to write The Wizard of Quippley, but with high fantasy, it’s easier to fake =P. I might add some color to the first sketch and put up on my deviantart page.
