Man your art is good. Got a da/tumblr/website?
Also how late in the paleolithic are we?

thanks! I do have a tumblr, at http://ofools.tumblr.com/

mmm, fairly late, upper paleolithic era Siberia, somewhere from 40,000-30,000, just before the Last Glacial Maximum
No. 82830 ID: d5d724

also its fucking late as dicks for me rn and i stayed up being all excited about this--so sorry for leaving on a cliff hanger. I'll try to aim to update this every few days? Yeah. It'll be faster once I'm done with university tho! (My last exam's on friday, so not long at all!)

I used to! I'm not exactly quiet on the internet, i used to have two webcomics (no longer exist) and i have another in the process of being made, so yeah its entirely possible you've seen my stuff someone esp. in webcomic form lol

(also, I'm going to try and draw a response/update this morning before starting study again for exams. Also for people asking, the bear is a cave bear, and are comparable in size to the largest modern day bears with males weighing 400-500 kilograms or 800, or 1,100 lbs)

i might have spent two hours looking for Hyena calls because i was like "i can't fucking MAKE the sound effect for this i'll just find some people have made" and what do you know

a lot of people have put up spotted hyena calls along with a number of other animal calls, the internet is amazing.

whoops fuck me i updated and still haven't studied for my exam tomorrow. Everyone just has really good ideas and suggestions and i really want to draw them all t b h

pic somewhat related

also i apologise sooo much for how shitty and crummy the writing is, I tend to do all the images, and then quickly write down responses into a word document and then copy and paste with very little checking so i apparently ended up posting a bunch of mistakes without realising.

Also tense changing, i'm sorry i know i know i know, i just had no idea what was going to fit but i think i have settled on present tense now.

Really i apologise for that! I'll try and plan more/edit/write better in the future

Apex: The highest of something. Matriarch: female head of a family, tribe, or clan.

I don't think it's standard to call a Matriarch an Apex, but Katja said "she" was much larger than any female hyena she's ever seen, so I put in Apex to describe her being above the Matriarchs of other clans. Does it make sense? Makes me sound crazy? Roundabout way of thinking that has its own merits?
No. 82928 ID: 0b90a3

I had actually been assuming that the eccentricities in language were just a product of Katja's dialect. It helps to keep quests understandable if you keep a consistent tense and grammar, but don't feel too pressured to be perfect. As long as you feel like it communicates well and its fun to work on, write however you feel like writing.

The quest looks amazing so far: the art is incredible for panels made so quickly and the story has me hooked. Starting a quest is really exciting: its addicting to post updates and get instant feedback and its awesome to hear that you're having fun doing it. Don't burn yourself out or neglect real life too much though.

There's also an IRC channel where members of the community talk about all sorts of stuff if you haven't checked it out yet. Though, that involves taking precious time away from updating (and studying).
No. 82937 ID: 969c38


I actually thought that was really smart, I hadn't really thought about it too much because i was pretty set on the hyena being male so then its like "wow how big are the females then" kinda thing (also because the male hyena personality was more suited to this story) So yeah it made a lot of sense!


Thank you! I'm really glad you like it! Yeah dw, i'll eventually slow down, probably in a few days and try to wind back to at least daily or every few days updates (although the update times are always weird because of time zones, so it might appear i've posted twice in one day when i've actually posted on two different days)
No. 82950 ID: 4a20fa

Seriously this is pretty much professional illustrated storybook level.

Don't burn yourself out or get bogged down sweating details.

No. 82955 ID: 969c38

ok! I've got my exam today so i might be able to update tonight after its over (tonight for me is probably like, idk, really early morning for most people in american timezones?)

Anyway, i'm super excited to see everyone's thoughts and ideas about what's happening, i've gotten some in the actual thread and a little here, which is cool! Keep going it's really interesting to see what other people are thinking! (And of course, it could probably lead to something)

As an addendum, when the quest first started people in the irc were theorizing you were a disney animator or something. You are NUTS man

Oh yeah, i know, people like to have fun and say fun shit, i do as well! Lmao the worst bit is I want to respond to all the silly ones and make shitty jokes but I'm trying to keep things largely serious. I'll probably do joke responses in here at some point.

The hyena looks really cuddly though. The belly calls to us for scratchies.

Funny and serious go hand in hand.
Honestly the quest is already sort of funny what with the expressive hyena and all.
No. 82987 ID: 4a20fa

That is a good way to separate it; a few other quests have.

IIRC Starit did at least one alternate-ending for Last Flifht in its /dis/ (a suggestion which would have killed the protagonist).

He just admitted to balderdashery. If I knew what panels he was referring to, it'd be easier to look through what he's talking about, but as it is I have to look around and make assumptions.
Oh right, you have a tumblr >>82829
Okay, white can be white just for the sake of being white, I'm fairly certain some cave art has featured white on its own. They're also calling the orb the moon, when it might be something else entirely. Who knows, maybe it's just that particular tribe/clan's icon for Gods and Spirits.

Heeeey, this guy sounds like me, only with more archaeology intelligence. Balderdashing your way through what you don't know with the things you do know, and then meekly apologizing saying "if you're reading this don't think of it as an insult please :<"
No. 83033 ID: 2fd516

It sounds like he was just trying to analyze it as if it were a real painting, as an exercise.

Forget about that though, who the fuck posts entirely in hashtags?
No. 83034 ID: 0b90a3

I think its kind of flattering that your work is detailed enough to merit being analyzed as if it were real. It also sounds like the person didn't intend for you to take it as criticism of the story.

It can be nice to get some input on your settings from other people, as long as it doesn't turn into a big dumb derail. At the end of the day, its the author who has final say on everything and needs to be given some license.

tbh i just find it very amusing and a weird thing to do rather than insulting or anything, because those hashtags were a mile fucking long.

(also the image they were referring to was the title cards that i did for permafrost, including the act one image, the WIP i posted here and a third, see attached, but i might not use them anyway)

i mostly just found it hilariously unnecessary

also! No update today because like most residents in the southern hemisphere i am fascinated by the idea of water falling from the sky in solid ice form (""""snow"""") and then maintaining its existence on the ground, and i'm going to drive like 2 hours to go play in it and make a snowman and be happy.
