EDIT: Happy St. Patrick's! My brother is making corned beef. He likes to cook. Dude, I score
Beneath yon cut lurks 'Light and Fire', a little comic I did back in 2006. Though I like to think my art has improved since then, there remains a lot about it that I still like, and it's probably one of the better things I've managed to write. It saw print in Genus 76, but despite this it isn't actually porn; it's barely erotica, even. It is a bit sad, though, so warnings for that.
Which brings me to another point. I don't think that I'll be using the special adult filter on this journal any longer. When I'm posting furry porn, I'll friends-lock it, but you're all grownups, and I prefer to think that you can choose not to click the link if you don't care to see the juicy stuff. This is really about LJ emblazoning 'Danger, could contain adult content!!!!!!!!!!!!' in big red letters over my journal when one isn't logged in. I don't necessarily disagree with this policy, but neither do I think I've ever created any porn so dubious that it deserved to be censored twice
...well okay maybe just that one time...
Anyhow, this is also my first attempt to embed here from Deviant Art. Please let me know if you encounter problems with this, and here it is on FA
if you prefer. If anyone knows if there is a bit of code, as there is on FA, that allows the reader to scroll easily through a comic, please tell me. I'd really like to get 'Bone Shard' up on DA too, but only if there's a device in place to make the thing reader-friendly; it's too long, otherwise.
And about 'Bone Shard.' I have a little bit of artist guilt about its inconsistency; I wish I could be one of those people who get their whole webcomic out twice a week reliably for three years until it's done, other than that one week they had to take off for their triple coronary bypass surgery. But really, I'm not. I tend to work in obsessive little fits and starts, with a background level of slow consistency. I am 98% confident in my ability to complete this novel in a timely fashion and update with relative regularity. There is a special hell reserved for comics artists who begin a story, obtain reader interest and then fail to complete, and I'm already once guilty of that particular sin. (There are several people who still remember 'Kettjarra' and wish I'd finish, and I've actually tried, but it's been so long and I've changed so much that I just don't think I can. I'm really sorry. I don't believe I still get approached by people at cons about this).
At any rate, 'Bone Shard' is outlined and scripted through the dramatic heart-rending finale, and if a redwood tree falls on my house tomorrow and I go squish, whoever gets custody of my gmail account should post it so you can at least know. ;) Thankfully, we aren't there now, and I have a bunch of Bone Shard pages coming up as soon as I get them ready to post.
For now, there's this comic.( Light and Fire )
