Guest Experiment: Angel Reaper
I've mentioned this before, but I often randomly browse the internet looking for something new and different to draw. Upon Googling the words "Comic Contest" I found a manga webcomic called Angel Reaper that was looking for guest comics. Randomly searching for stuff like this is a great way of drawing things that you wouldn't do otherwise , and while I completely forgot that I wanted to do something in a mock-Manga style, at least I think I made something cute. What you're about to read is the product of a few hours of boredom at their strangest. Or something like that.
If you're curious, you can find the original Angel Reaper stuff by clicking HERE. One more thing: I took some liberties with the Angel Reaper cast. In fact, I think I just grabbed the basic premise and ran with it. Either that or I completely forgot about it. I can only hope that Sarah W. (the author of the thing) can forgive me. Blah blah blah, enjoy a weird little comic:
Like I said, pretty random. Still, I don't do narrative comics that much so this was a nice change of pace. It was also interesting to see how fast I could do a full acrylic/watercolor comic. This may not be my best work, but I consider it training for the artistic doom ahead of me. Oh and I have to admit, when you're writing a comic about Death's daughter, it's pretty hard to not start making Terry Pratchett jokes.

Or something. Also don't ask me why crabs have been popping up in every narrative thing I do lately. I really don't know.
