– Welcome to the in-between season break! If this comic makes absolutely no sense, please go back and read these two strips from in-between seasons 2 and 3. I never got around to finishing off this little story, but here’s my chance! Look for more later this week!
– My Patreon campaign is going great! We met our first Milestone Goal over the weekend, which means that very soon the Project Wonderful ads here on the site will be going away. I haven’t decided what will take their place yet, but I’ll figure it out this week. We’re also less than $200 from our next Milestone goal, which is a monthly live drawing and chat session. If you’re interested in becoming a patron please check out my page!
Each month Patrons who pledge $25 or more get a special Medusa cosplay sticker. Last week I showed off the art for Medusa dressed as Link and Princess Hilda from The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds (which I just finished and it’s totally awesome by the way!). Usually I’l only be sending out one sticker design each month, but this month I decided to do three! So here’s Medusa dressed as Ravio as well! So Patrons who back at the $25 level or more will get all three stickers this month (and multiple copies of each). Thanks guys!
– Jaymz and I stayed up late last night making some pixel style Medusa art out of perler beads. I think it turned out pretty okay. I may offer these as a Kickstarter reward if anyone is interested. We used a design based on this great illustration by Necrolichmon.
“There’s more thAn just one…”
Melissa is some girl who steal stuff and writes her name on it. Duh!
Hmmm A thought just occured to me. If normal people who stay too long in Yeld become more monstery, perhaps monsters of Yeld become more humanized if they stay in Jake’s world too long. Or in other words, if Modest grows up away from Yeld, she won’t lose as much of her humanity.
That is a good theory. I hope it is true but only time (or Jake) will tell. Then again would it affect them mentally?
Well it had already been proven by the unicorn’s story that when he took the door out of Yeld he had turned completely human.
But obviously it doesn’t work that way as medusa is still medusa, so they’d have to be a human before-hand. Also the only reason that people in Yeld became monsters was because of the prince so it wouldn’t work the other way around unless there was a human prince that turned monsters into humans. but that’d be rather silly.
Why? Because a monster -> H.S. Sapiens conversion is less common in fiction than the other way around?
Also, you’ve made a lot of assumptions in writing your post, so you might want to take a closer look at those before deciding you’re certain.
(Assumptions spoiler: 1-2. We haven’t kept track of any small changes Medusa or anyone else may have experienced from being out of Yeld. 3. We don’t know what exactly determines rate of change in Yeld; experience, age group, contact with magic, and acceptance of the change are some possibilities. 4-5. Changes could be much more diverse in properties than implied by the category “human->monster”, in that human->vampire, human->horse-thing, and human->elf could have drastically different conditions for rate of change and permanence of change [like maybe one transformation is slow, steady, and irreversible, while another comes in quick, sudden bursts and fades steadily without enough Yeld-ness]. 6-7. We do not know if the Prince is the source of the change, just exerts some control over it, or can only accelerate and warp it, and we don’t know what his true methods are; “Prince of Yeld” could just be a title that he got because he’s a really good spellcaster.
Any one of the above issues is a good enough reason to keep an open mind…and a precise one.)
Love the perler beads.
Ha! That’s funny. 🙂
Cool sticker and pixel Medusa by the way!
Wait! Why doesn’t Modest’s shirt say “Daft Punk” on it?
I forgot. It’s funny that on the day I posted this Daft Punk won a bunch of Grammys!
4th Wall, what’s that? XD
This web comic is making me hate Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays, and Sundays.
Ahhhh it’s me again!
Well if that wasn’t a pleasant surprise to find when catching up on my usual webcomics! I can’t believe how long it’s been since I contributed to the first campaign… I remember mentioning the dog tags belonged to my boyfriend at the time and since that first appearance, I can happily add that we have since gotten married!
Oh, hey! Congratulations! Sorry that I made you such a grouch in the comic!
Nah its totally cool! I’m secretly grouchy in real life too 😛
EEK! Perler beads! I love those things so much. They were one of my favorite craft/art projects as a kid, and again as an after school daycare staff/supervisor. I have a ton of them just waiting for excuses to come out and take over our house. A Perler Medusa is SO awesome. <3!!!
