– Congratulations Matt Selter. Turns out you were the Chainsaw Unicorn all along!
– Modest Medusa has been nominated for the Stumptown Comics Arts Award for Best Webcomic! Voting is open to the public, so please vote! I’d really appreciate it. Here’s the link.
– Here’s some more book sketches!
Does that mean that time runs differently in that other dimension or did he simply not realise how much time has gone past.
A little of both.
Seeing a new human character, it suddenly strikes me how much the drawing style has evolved.
O.O Whata twist!
But… if he could be human when he got back… why wasn’t he human when he went to fetch Modest?
Wall of text attack!!:
Probably has to do with accepting the other form or some other thing like spending so much time there that he doesn’t remember how he used to look or maybe the only thing that allowed him to change back that time was that he had always wanted to go back and so after he left the second time the part of him that wanted to be human was gone.
Oh wow, the art style just keeps getting better and better. Not to mention the story is getting very intriguing. Very nice, keep at it.
*cue fanfare and spaghetti rain*
Called it, was Matt all along.
Well, not really. Though a nice twist.
So is the CSU name Matt as well?
I’m guessing that time moves differently in Medusa’s world. Given that it seemed to be the middle ages (from unicorn’s clothing) when he went there and now it’s the modern world.
He was actually supposed to look like he was dressed for the mid-1920’s. I guess that didn’t really come across. Matt is, of course, much younger than that (I would assume), but I wanted the character to look like he had aged 30-40 years while he had been gone.
On The Comic: Wait, so HOW long passed, again…?
On The Sketches: Modest, I think your hair has had enough to drink ಠ_ಠ
Does this mean he can change back to his original form when he’s on this side? That would explain how he was able to get back to Yeld the last time without anyone noticing the 1st time we saw him back in season 1.
“And how did you get that cut in your forehead?”
“You got cut in the head with a chainsaw?!”
“No, that’s where the chainsaw came out of my head.”
Go back to Yeld or waste a lot of time in psychiatric therapy sessions…
Very interesting… Clearly time either works differently in their worlds or his longevity was increased when Momdusa changed him… Or I have no idea what I’m talking about, also very possible!
This page is beautiful! It also leads to so many questions: Like, when he comes back after Modest, why is he a unicorn and not a man? And exactly how much time has passed? How old is he supposed to be (he looks maybe in his late 40s/early 50s)? Did he age very slowly?
Amazing the “real” world has become the strange one now! Absolutely beautiful page!
I’m sorry but how is surving the wound in his head? If going back to our world reverts him back into his human self, than shouldn’t his head wound hurt him if not kill him? Also if by that nature, why doesn’t Modest become more human in our world?
Wasn’t Modest from the other world in the first place? She wouldn’t have a form to revert to in our world.
Jake with medusa fangs. LOVE IT
Who are you and what did you do with Jake? He never draws legs!
I do sometimes.
If it wasn’t for the large bleeding spot on one’s forehead… worst dream ever. O_o
Enjoying the fun book sketches to mellow out the importantly serious story. Favorite of the quick sketches has to be the drunk medusa followed by the action ones (uzi & wolverine).
Good luck with the rest, curious to see how the two eventually re-connect.
wait…why’d he turn into a human when he went through the door? (also why does the trim on his cloak keep disappearing/reappearing?)
The trim is just me being lazy. I kept for getting to draw the trim, and then I kept telling myself it was okay to only draw it in close ups.
Y’know.. for being in there so long… why does he only have a mustashe? and a well trimmed one at that… and wasn’t his hair a different colour? >nitpicks<
Magic? the real answer is I wanted to use Matt as a model, but I was afraid that if I gave him orange hair and a beard it wouldn’t look anything like him.
I took the different color as his hair having turned gray because he got older.
And obviously he had that mustache because he let his mane grow out a little, and that was how the magic translated it.
Thanks. That’s it exactly.
Maybe the narrative convenience here is that when he comes back into his original world, he ends up inhabiting someone else’s body, or has just randomly transformed or something because his original self is completely dead and gone by now.
Or, you know. Magic.
It’s just magic.
There is something in his ear? Did you forget to color it?
It was supposed to be “shadow”. It didn’t come out well, I guess.
wow… him as a human is weird.
Hey…where did his red hair go!??! 😮
and his horse form…Hmmmmmm???
*doing the thinking man pose*
Now…what happens next!??!
To be continued…. *duh duh dahhhh*
(I’ve always wanted to do that! 🙂 )
hmmm… I wonder…. if more time passed than he expected, perhaps the fact that he stayed in his Yeld form in when sent to fetch Modest was one of two things- either he would have died as a human, but as one of the “monsters of Yeld” he’s got a longer lifespan… or his decision to return to Yeld and acceptance of his form as the Chainsaw Unicorn make it permanent… while the magic of Yeld could work like that, I feel the “human lifespan” idea makes more sense to me, when his form isn’t human, heages differently than he would as a human, but all the age gets counted on their return to Earth….
hmmmm I must admit, while I’m enjoying this whole backstory telling us the history of Yeld, I can’t wait to get back to Jake, Marah and Modest soon. Will Modest be able to take them home (as she seems to have found a reliable portal into our world) or not?
The story has gotten pretty interesting, Jake! But I’m starting to miss the hijinks of Medusa and Jake though!
Red Bull Cameo – I see what you did there!
is it just me or does the humand form of the chainsaw unicorn loks a) pretty boring/average and b) a bit like jake? is he maybe a descendant from unicorns human siblings? i mean, there´s got to be a reason why she surfaced in his toilt and not some public restroom…unless of course she was born with epic chocodile detection skills that work even across dimensional borders XD
I can only imagine how many years it’s been there! 😀
