Character Ask 1

Character Ask 1 published on No Comments on Character Ask 1

A new little something I made for the hiatus! I’m allowing people to ask questions to me and the characters, and this was the first one I got. It’s from the maker of the webcomic Vulperra!

I’ve had lots of inspirations come and go, but the first one that got me into webcomics specifically was VG Cats. However, while that did inspire the creation of Leon and Melody (they were originally modeled after Leo and Aeris), the style of humor and writing is much more in-line with Calvin and Hobbes/the other inspirations listed here.

Character Sketches – Luca

[For the hiatus, I’m going to be posting a bunch of the development art I made for the series. It’ll be posted in the order it was made, leading up to the week the comic resumes]

{ORIGINAL COMMENTARY} My first sketches of my character Luca from Key to the Future’s Fate. By this point I didn’t have her personality as nailed down, so I mostly focused on having her look nice.

Though it probably won’t come up in the comic, she has a heart-shaped marking on her chest!

(The white squares are unrelated Friday Fan-Art pieces I did. This was made back when those shared the same pages as my KttFF sketch stuff.)

{NEW COMMENTARY} Honestly this was more just practice drawing Tecktrins more than Luca specifically. The middle drawing is the closest thing to her “final look” I got, and even that’s off. Very glad I went with the goggle design.

{Original Commentary} My very first ever sketches of Trinity Shepard, from Key to the Future’s Fate. I was going for someone hecka tall who tends to do alot of expressing with her hands.

(The white blocks are unrelated Friday Fan-Art things. This was back when I used the same pages for that and my KttFF sketches.)

{New Commentary} Wow… so my original concepts for Trinity weren’t… the best. It took another page of sketching later on to get a more solid grasp on her design… and even then, she changed a lot once she got into the comic!

Even as of writing this, she’s still a character whose proportions I struggle with at times, but she still remains one of my absolute favorite characters to draw.

… Man I wish I had keep that DNA segment decal on the back of FA scientist’s lab coats.

Huh… didn’t we see a red brick somewhere before…?

AND HERE WE GO, the official end for Chapter 1 of Key to the Future’s Fate! I’ve been working rigorously to keep this comic updating nearly EVERY WEEK for about two and a half years, so I need a break. The comic is going to be on hiatus until April 9th, 2020 so I can relax a bit and prepare for chapter 2!

This article I posted in the Comicadia Herald will give you the full scoop on the plan for the hiatus, but the short version is:

  • I’ll be posting development stuff from the first chapter during the break, as well as any submitted guest art! If you want to submit guest art, contact me on Tumblr (@catcomixzstudios), Twitter (@CatComixStudios), deviantART (@CatComixzStudios), or if you know me personally, over Discord! You can submit art until April 2020.
  • From chapter 2 onward, the comic is going to be done digitally.
  • If you want to ask the characters any (family-appropriate) questions, send them over to any of the above-mentioned places! Questions will be accepted until April 2020.

And please, if you’ve been enjoying the comic, TELL OTHER PEOPLE ABOUT IT! Word of mouth will always be the most effective way of sharing stories you love, and it would mean the world to me if you did!

Oh, also, if you’re reading this from the future, congrats on not having to deal with the hiatus and being able to just move right along.
