2007-01-10 [ArchangelGabriel]: it's up on it's own web page but as i have no skill in web design and it's blocked by the school servers, i thought i'd put it up here too..
2007-01-10 [Estantia]: sounds good to me...
2007-01-11 [ArchangelGabriel]: quite so ^^
2007-01-16 [monkey2005]: i liked your story board shame it does continue on from when he entered the room
2007-01-16 [ArchangelGabriel]: You say that, but it's a continuous novel, this is only the first volume, I've got plans for another 10-20 comics in this volume, depending how far from reality i dare to walk... It won't be long before i post the next comic which finally has some answers. I still need reference pics for the characters, the sketch-up images have all been sorted. Still, criticsm is more than welcome, so please, any other points, do note them...
2007-01-16 [Yoruno]: Wow, 20 volumes! O__O That's a long story... I've never been able to plan something so long... ^^;; But I really like it... it's quite intriguing! The start, with those codenames reminds me a bit of the Matrix...
2007-01-16 [ArchangelGabriel]: Nope, I've planned 5 volumes of about 20 pages each. I'll admit it begins a lot like the matrix but it ends up as something much more based in reality. I love the name Squonk. Everyone else says it sounds stupid or made up :P It's very symbolic of her character in fact, the Squonk is like a banshee, always heard but never seen. Instead of a scream, instead all that is heard is it's sobs through the hemlock forests. it is said to be an ugly creature with horrible skin that is ill fitting and covered in boils. One man supposedly hunted the squonk by following it's frozen tears. He caught is in a bag but when he looked to see what it was like all that remained was a puddle of tears n the bottom of the bag. (don't you love being able to put more text than before in comments ;) )
2007-01-16 [Yoruno]: Wow... O__O Me likes that creature! X3 From where is that legend?
2007-01-17 [ArchangelGabriel]: Apparently the squonk haunts the hemlock forests of pennsylvania. It's pretty obscure, I've only seen it turn up in one, very old book, must have been published about 35 years ago...
I think Genesis did an album called the squonk...
2007-01-17 [Yoruno]: Oh... it reminds me a bit of the japanese Crying babies... whwn you're in the forest, and you listen a baby crying, you must be very careful, because if you follow the sound, you can be trapped by an evil spirit that actually cries like a baby....
2007-01-17 [ArchangelGabriel]: Cool, I've never heard that one before ^_^ published 1974 btw ;)Nasnas is a strange one, it's half a person, hops on one leg, has a sheep's tail, it's half face is in the center of it's chest and sometimes has bats wings ...
2007-01-17 [Yoruno]: ô__O What's that...? Reminds me of the monsters the spanish people thought existed in America 5 centuries ago... creatures with one foot that they used as umbrellas to protect from the sun, cyclops, humans with ears so big that they touched the floor... quite a museum! ^^;;
2007-01-17 [ArchangelGabriel]: the desert country of the yemen it says :S
2007-01-17 [Yoruno]: Uh? ^^;;
2007-01-18 [ArchangelGabriel]: it's so hard to come by a decent book of myths these days *shakes head* they're all so skewed by modern fantasy. Tolkien was the last true to life fantasy author i would say... i was very disappointed with Rowling when she introduced that basilisk, she should have known better..
2007-01-18 [Estantia]: To be honest I was more disappointed with the films, what did they DO to the books?!?!
2007-01-18 [ArchangelGabriel]: True, the films weren't very good. There was just too much detail, you can't do that and get so many special effects in.
2007-01-18 [Estantia]: erm, and they uterly changed the plot at times??
2007-01-18 [ArchangelGabriel]: To fit the graphics...Tha
2007-01-18 [Yoruno]: Now I feel like reading the book, just out of curiosity :P I just saw the movie and found it... slightly crappy ^^;;
2007-01-18 [ArchangelGabriel]: It's very rare for a film to live up to your expectations from a book. I rather liked the hogfather though, not any better than the book as good as a film of it could be..
