he must be sparkly he is a vampire!

Finished the first comic from the manga group, though I misplaced some pages and my brain hurts trying to reorder them right.

Ginger ninjas, sparkly vampires and American cops in sunglasses. "I think I might need photo reference for that," I said. Thanks to new google image search, photo reference is a quick click (remember the days it meant a visit to the library? No, of course you don't. Pre-internet, when we had to remember the slow way). Although, for future reference, "American cop costume" wasn't the best starting point.

At the moment they're coming up with the story and I'm drawing it, but a couple of them are busy moving on from fanart, moody character portraits and cute creatures to groups of characters that will interact and create a story. Can't wait to see that happen. Here's the minicomic, anyway:

Collaborative comic made with an art group

As you can see, it ends just as the plot is taking off. This is because we'd just got the point that ideas were firing fast when we had to wrap up. I could make a little reading series of minis, maybe? A box set! Page sixteen isn't included, but it's only a to-be-continued:

We may go to another chapter!

They're all mad about Hetalia, which is kind of compulsive, I have to admit.

Skinny-legged vampire stranger-danger! Ginger-ninja burger-block!

Why did you have to put a link down for Hetalia? I have a secret love of Hetalia which I have been able to keep in check by the scanlations being too scattered for me to spend time hunting fruitlessly for them. Having them all in one place is doom! Hysterically funny and very silly doom admittedly.

Rad drawing as always, Jeremy.

eh, what it lacks in consistency it makes up in verve (or something...)

By a strange coincidence, I was watching the first season of the Hetalia anime last week whilst in "put off doing my Japanese homework" procrastination mode.
The comic looks good - anything taking the mick out of the current sparkly vampire trend suits me.

oh yes, there was a certain level of sparkly vampire mocking in the group...
