plague carnival

by livun
An invitation to a high school reunion leads Patrick Bellamy into a topsy-turvy world of masked monstrosities and smothering mist. Caught along with him is Bellamy's former schoolboy nemesis, Elliot Reid, who seems to recall much less of their old fights and petty hatreds than Bellamy himself.

Initially convinced he's stuck in some kind of enormous practical joke, then doggedly focused on getting out, Bellamy is soon forced to confront some skeletons in his closet — skeletons that aren't as well-hidden as he'd thought, and which drag him in the more he struggles to escape.


16+ for gore, violence, profanity, adult concepts, etc. Sketch comic.

@LaEstrellita: The phrase is usually translated "The more things change, the more they stay the same." <small>(That's not a literal translation.)</small>
Care to translate the phrase for those of us who don't speak French? :)
my hand kind of hurts
I replaced the old cover because I felt like it didn't quite match the comic in terms of mood. I can't help but be somewhat sarcastic about the characters, but it does get pretty grim eventually, and since a large part of the design is in B&W . . .
wow, this is such a pretty picture! your colouring is amazing, i wish i could colour like you!
yay! update! 8D

@otakulys: Yeah, I don't have anything against all the romance/smut (otherwise why would I be drawing a BL comic XD . . . though romance/smut tends to bore me without some other kind of plot), but most times I'd rather create non-romance stories since that's what I prefer to write/read. And LGBTQ people should be in non-romance stories as well. :\

Although frankly whether or not there are LGBTQ characters in my comics, I'd say "fuck off homophobes" anyway. 8D
wow this page is drowning in textures
Elliot isn't as much of a ditzy insensitive jackass as he appears to be, just sayin'. You'll find out later if I get that far with this comic. 8I
I'm glad you mentioned the issue with BL here. I think saying "fuck off homophobes" in the summary would be great. XD But I hate how there's such an assumption that gay or bisexual characters being present means there will be romance or smut. That isn't the rule with heterosexual characters. So yeah, I'm even more eager to read this now.
no, I didn't forget that this comic exists
Re. the lines — I draw in Corel Painter 11 at high resolution (7.3x10.3" at 600dpi for this comic). That's also why I can scribble the lines in and still have the page look relatively neat.

I livestreamed some of this page, if you want to watch. It's not very interesting, and the video quality is dismal, but I use essentially the same process on my other B&W comics, albeit I just draw more neatly.

you paint beautifully. <3
lol okay so
Since I don't have enough pain in my life or something —
Here is a sketch comic. An actual sketch comic, as opposed to one that I forget to actually sketch. I'll even be timing myself to make sure I don't spend more than an hour drawing each page, so look forward to painfully bad art.

About the BL thing . . . I don't know how to explain this, because it seems like a lot of comics/novels etc. are either gay romance or not, but this sort of falls in between in that the main character is bi and this is relevant to the characterization/backstory, but not the focus, and the comic isn't at all about romance. (Wow, what a shittastic, convoluted explanation.) I don't have anything against BL (I'm drawing a BL comic :I); I just dislike the way authors usually stuff LGBTQ characters into minor roles or force romance plots on them.

Is there some category for stories that have LGBTQ protagonists but don't focus on that? :\ Maybe it ought to be called the "homophobes fuck off anyway" category.

Basically:
· THERE IS NO ROMANCE IN THIS STORY.
· There are, however, weird monsters, crazy people, cannibalism, really skeevy group dynamics, UST, lots and lots of badly-drawn carnival masks, gore and violence, and possibly other things I can't recall at this time.



Replaced cover 2010.06.23; old cover if anyone's morbidly interested.
