The Keep on the Borderlands

by warriorneedsfood
Follow my adventurers as they travel through The Keep on the Borderlands adventure. They also go through The King's Festival adventure as a prelude. The characters in this comic are based on PCs from an old tabletop game I played in my teens, this comic is driven by characters, but the results of actions are based on dice rolls, just like a table top game. I have stats for each one of these guys, and I have the rolls determining success or failure with every action. I don't know who is going to live and who is going to die. So let's discover together what is going to happen!

This is another page that was penciled in 2008 and finished 4 years later. Some panels are much newer than others.
This sequence was penciled back in 2008. Some panels were inked in 2009, and I followed up and finished the page in 2014. Redrew a couple panels that were still just pencil. Can you guess which is which?
This page has panels that were redrawn, which makes some panels 2 years older then others. I think it is one of the cool things about this process. You can see what I'm doing spread out over years on a single page
The Sleep spell is the great equalizer.
This page is a mess. Here I was starting to play with Photoshop brushes. Still working on improving my style.
This is one of the first pages where I feel like I'm starting to get the hang of the characters. I'm starting to see the beginnings of my own style. I lapse with bad art, but a boring as this page is, I really like the character of how I drew it.
I'm drawing Illerya as 'the hot one'. It's part of how my games always played out.
Illerya is freaking out. I think it's threatening for her to have another cleric in jeopardy.
Always running in to help; that's Illerya's M.O.
The Party is on the road again. Random encounter table really can mess up someone's day.
Sometimes when you can't bring yourself to kill off the party because a succession of bad rolls, so you just have the victors pile them up and sell them off.
A little more digital work this time. I'm still fluctuating on each page with how I'm producing it.
Sarkin finally realized that he got robbed. This page was penciled 2 years before I inked it. It was inked 6 months before I scanned it in and touched it up in Photoshop.
This was where I started to feel like I was gaining an understanding of what I was doing.
So the characters have arrived in town... and they're off to a great start.
I always thought random encounters were too arbitrary.
I really made that torch look like it's as bright as a lighthouse. I'm still trying to figure out night scenes here.
I wonder what kind of scars a giant lizard bite would leave... and for that matter, does Cure Light Wounds leave scars on a wound?
I was still trying to get the hang of night scenes here. I still struggle with it.
I never was too happy about this page. I'm still working out how to depict night scenes. But I have a lot to get through before this comic is done and I figured it was better to post it and get on with new attempts then to try to salvage this poor one.
