Colour tomorrow, sleep tonight (this morning) (whatever)
Fenris is known for dealing with his issues like an adult.
PS: @Coelasquid: This comic right here contains every reason why I read your strip religiously!
Yeah, I find this is one of those few comics where pretty much every strip is gold. They’re few and far between, but worth looking for. Which leads me onto another point – does Coelasquid get much hate mail about it? I mean, I know this is teh interwebz, but even so, why would anybody do that?
Eh, I just get letters now and then telling me I don’t work hard enough or I didn’t draw enough Mr. Fishes this month. The only times I really got hated on was when I put the ads up because… I dunno… that makes me a sellout or something.
In the words of Patton Oswalt, people who yell “SELLOUT!” are people who, when they were offering to sell, no one wanted to buy.
Or you could go with the words of Maynard James Keenan – “All you know about me is what I’ve sold you, dumbfuck. I sold out long before you ever even heard my name. I sold my soul to make a record, dipshit. And then you bought one.”
Yes, quoting songs is usually retarded, but whatever. Ignorant people calling others sellouts are exactly what the song is about.
Do people realize how much their ‘free’ entertainment actually costs?
Unless those people bought a couple dozen ManlyGuys Tee-shirts or something they should shove it.
Wait, there are MGDMT tee shirts? WHERE?
As far as I know, no. It was just a hypothetical.
Hey Coela. T-Shirts. This should happen.
Would definitely rock the Mr Fish Tee day-in, day-out. Necessary washes of course.
Fill in for me at my real job for a couple of days so I have time to make them.
Just set up a little shop on CafePress.com It’s pretty easy to make stuff there and they have a lot of things that you can customize and add to your shop.
That still does nothing to give me the free time it would take to design high resolution artwork for a shirt.
ô¿ô LOOK I drew a face! I can fill in for you!! :D
But if enough people were interested it would justify the time/effort spent, yes? Yes. :D
A thousand times this. Bagh, I wish I was like, Batman rich. Instead of fighting crime I would spend my money funding amazing web comics…. okay maybe I would get a couple cool gadgets but mostly it would go to web comic artists.
There’s a word for people who hate on artists for making money and call them sellouts… But it escapes me for some reason ….
That’s close, but I think it has more R’s at the end …
By the Odin’s spear! if people are that cranky for not seeing those then they need to get a life seriously. These comics are what I read because they make me smile and bring more color to my life. Also you are an amazing artist and I love art like this. Oh and who needs color for a comic strip? I mean seriously it kinda adds more a mood to this like “Fenris is a too lazy to have color.”
Very nice comic… And what the hell is Kaine doing?
Fuck yeah Rutger Hauer. I knew there was a reason I kept Fenris in my party.
I feel a bit dense, what’s the connection between Rutger Hauer and Fenris?
It’s written on his box of DVDs and BLU-rays
I’m guessing it’s some kind of “Blade Runner” reference.
No one’s seen Ladyhawke? Really?
I have, but I’m old. I was 13 when it came out and I watched it when it was released a year later on VHS.
I’m sure my buddy Joe has, too, but he’s restricted to just watching things that come on TBS at odd hours of the day.
But I got it before I scrolled down here and read this. I lol’ed.
Man I have seen Ladyhawke like thirteen dozen times.
… I’m old too.
Ah Ladyhawke was a staple of my childhood years and is still one of my favorites.
But what does Ladyhawke have to do with-
Oh…. I see what you did there…
Ohhhhh, see i didn’t get it until you just pointed it out. Genius.
Not as recently as I’ve seen Blade Runner, so the parallels between Fenris and his former master and Roy Batty and Tyrell were where my mind went. Creations of magic/science going rogue and seeking to kill their creators, and the vital importance of memories?
Well played, though. Well played.
Hey, Ladyhawke was made of NEARLY pure Awesomtanium.
Except for the soundtrack, which was a bit distracting.
Setting an epic fantasy to 80’s synthesizer was a tragic error in hindsight. It just does not scream “this is the dark ages.” And the decline in the popularity of synthesizers just made it worse.
Lady-Hawke always makes me think of Ladyhawke, silly as that mental association is. I kind of wanted to name her Isabeau in my playthrough for that reason, but, you know, there was already an Isabela, so my plans were foiled.
You may have noticed Fenris’s Rutger Hauer collection…
I’ve done an Isabeau(named her Mabari Etienne, for Navarre). And a Navarre(his Mabari was Mouse). It’s fun :)
Ditto. This is clearly what we talk about while Varric picks locks and finds nothing but moth eaten trousers.
Man, on that topic, my team found enough moth eaten trousers to open up Kirkwall’s first Abercrombie and Fitch. It was a nightmare.
Which is funny, because if his collection is up to date, he has Hobo with a Shotgun in there.
Look at the box of DVDs.
I followed the youtube link… that’s actually really well written. Shame about the animation and VA quality.
I dunno, I’m a fan of the voice acting. The gravelly voice is pretty much the only thing stopping Fenris from turning into a full-on JRPG stereotype.
I think it’s more about the displaced aussie accent. Nobody can escape the aussie voice.
It’s actually South African, I believe. ;)
There is absolutely nothing wrong with Gideon Emery’s sexy voice. Lord knows as a guy even I fell in love with his vocal pursuits.
Stupid sexy Fenris. Stupid sexy Balthier.
Did I say there was anything wrong with it? :B
I do sort of wonder about the corpses.
I mean, it’s not your house, Fenris, but would it kill you to clean up a bit?
Maybe it killed THEM and he’s too smart for that.
Dragon age 3 now with Netfix induce Rage! Buy it on day 1 to get “The Journey to Google+” expansion pack and the “Hipster Awakening” armor.
Eventually, that cellar is going to run out of wine and he’s going to have to move on.
You know, I tried watching that video, but after LA Noire, the plain facial expressions just bother me so much.
That’s unfortunate, because LA Noir is the only game that looks like LA Noir.
Yeah, my reaction to that news was about the same.
Fenris and I have a lot in common
*Is in reality from the town of Kirkwall that is located to the north of Scotland* XD
*also in Kirkwall, Orkney* High five!
Umm… You know blu ray was released in 2006, right? I guess he likes the boxes so much he started putting stuff in them /after/ he already moved in!
No one ever said when this comic was taking place.
You know DA2 takes place over the course of 10 years…..and not once did fenris ever leave his room.
You must not have ever used Fenris.
I only used him once, because I thought he looked neato burrito, but all through the entire time he’s with you he whines about his backstory,
Also, hey bioware y u no qunari companion
He wasn’t as much of a dumb bitch as Anders, at least. Never was I so glad they gave you the option to kill an NPC.
Both of them were terrible lol that’s why I only used varric, every other character pissed me off,
Blame varric for bastardizing the other characters and making himself look good.
Its not that hard when one thinks your hitting on him every relationship up (anders), one complains about his past any hates you for anything magic related (fenris) one voice is so high pitched it can shatter glass (meril). Ones the obligatory do me character (isabel who’s relationship meter bugged out for me lol). And the
I reserve a special kind of animosity for those who hate on Anders.
It is the special kind that kinda burns out after a minute or so as I move on to more important things… but still. Awakening-era Anders was the best Bioware character EVER. DA2 Anders… whinier, more prone to borderline religious tendencies… and an Abomination.
STILL manages to be better than Fenris…. (who in turn still manages to be better than Sten).
THAT PLACE IS A SPY!
YOUR FACE IS A SPY!
YOUR EXCLAMATION IS AN IRONY!
Oh man, this is what went through my head every single time I went into that place. What does he DO all day that after years the place is still a complete mess?
Thank you for providing the obvious answer. =)
What does he do?
He choreographs dance routines.
My TV screen is too narrow for Dragon Age 2 so everyone looks thinner than they should, this makes Fenris’ facial expression hilarious because of how small his mouth looks :D
god i feel for fenris :/ now he has to unpack his crap :(
At least he’s taking the time to decorate his walls.
Why did he switch hands to throw the bottle?
1 – Because he could.
2 – It is a deep seated psychological distancing technique that allows him to displace his actions/rage from his warm LadyHawke fandom while still carrying out the act of destructive violence.
3 – A truly skilled fighter trains with the off hand in case of injury to the dominant hand.
Because he was holding it in the hand that best suited the composition and throwing it with the hand that matched the game cinematic.
His reaction is everyone’s reaction! Damn you, Netflix!
So this has to be my new favorite page just because… netflix called me the day this came out for an interview for a job with them.
Lmfao, talk about epic timing.
I love the way you draw Ladyhawke.
Well everyone is slowly turning to internet or their videogame consoles to netflix or hulu plus that it’s no surprise netflix will be raising their prices. Soon hulu plus might follow. Me, my husband and my friend are already on hulu plus or youtube or other places. Left the dumb cable companies. My in laws are already considering the thought to leave cable and go to the internet.
I really don’t have a problem with the Netflix price hike. They were saying a big motivating factor behind it was the number of people who have the DVD/rental combo and never use it, they just take out a DVD and sit on it forever. They figure hiking the price up five or six bucks will motivate people to either keep the DVDs in rotation or just switch back to streaming only. They’d rather get a couple bucks less from you per month and have the DVDs to send to people who are going to return them in a timely manner than get your two dollar for a DVD you’re going to have out for six months. They straight-up said they’d rather people who rarely rent DVDs to switch to streaming-only and use Redbox when they feel like watching a DVD.
I thought the same thing so many times when I went into Fenris’s mansion, especially toward the end of the game. Always lovely to see your Lady Hawke (no, never seen the movie, but I was still calling her that sarcastically when I was in a mood about some of her word choices, or when I had to side with the Templars for the damn trophies).
Ahahah, I actually named Hawke “Lady”, so Lady Hawke is still a pretty correct way to address her :P
Oh shit that makes so much sense why did I never think of that
Too perfect! I tended to name my female Hawkes after Babylon 5 characters: Susan for the one I liked, Lyta for the one I fed to the Templar choices. :P I like your sense of style, though. ;)
I just came across this comic & just skimming through 4-5 pages I’m definitley gonna be coming back for more & more. Too cool!!!
The animations in Dragon age 2 are like really bad mass effect 1 ones. I keep expecting one of them to suddenly bug out and scream KROGRAN CHARGIIIIIIIING
Heh… I’ve had boyfriends like this. A bit of advice guys and gals; a warm, comfortable and hygenic environment is something that’s appreciated by 90% of people (and by hygenic I mean you can visit the loo/ eat a meal/ sit down without fear of infection; doesn’t have to be neat but just, you know, cleanish.) If you don’t respect your boyfriend/girlfirend enough to create a welcoming enviroment for their visit, chances are that they’ll translate it to you putting your ease before their comfort. Doesn’t end well.
Off topic, would love to see some bishonen here; yes, they may have long hair, pretty features and good fashion sence but, when it comes to wholescale distruction and general badassery, can you beat Sephiroth’s Masamune, Kuja’s Ultima/Holy, Sesshoumaru’s poison whip or Inuyasha’s ‘blades of blood’? Of course, it’s up to Coelasquid which videogame characters she includes (well, the Inuyasha characters appeared in a game lol!) but I can see a lot of comic potential;
Jared: Hey, Miss, this is an Agency for, y’know, guys, so…
Sephiroth: (turns round. Glower)
Jared: Eeeeeep! Miiiiisssteeeer Fiiiiiiiiisssssssssh!
Commander: So, eh, y’see, most of our work is, um, rather physical…Mister? Kuja… erm… and not in a y’know, sexual way or anythin’… Ahem, what d’ya think you can you bring to us?
Kuja: The power to destroy planets
Commander: I ain’t gonna disrespect that…
Commander: Don’t recruit emos, sorry, company policy
Vincent Valentine (turns demon)
Commander: Well shit…
(bit OOC I know lol- made me smile, though)
Each of these examples is entirely awesome within its own rights.
I think doing this would be a winning answer, even if it’s just a one-off strip (or two).
Almost trolled me hard for a second there, but the Inuyasha characters gave it away.
I wasn’t actually trolling (well,not intentionally)
Being ‘manly’ isn’t as simple as looking masculine; the guys- in particular the Commander, show numerous other traits which build up to what makes a ‘real’ man. For example:
FIghting prowess: Sephiroth is a General, has amazing sword-skills and is repeatedly depicted as winning against near impossible odds. Sesshoumaru can wipe out entire human armies and has vanquished gods (ditto Inuyasha). kuja is a powerful magican who has wiped out fleets of ships and armies. Vincent Valentine is a brilliant marksman and ex-assassin.
Strength: Sephiroth, Sesshumaru and Inuyasha are all seriously strong.
Pulling Power: lets face it, bishonen have twice as many fangirls (not to mention fanboys…)
Sod-you Independance: None of the aforementioned particularly care about what other people think- they do as they please. (Two of them are villains, the other two antiheroes)
Paternal behaviour; Sesshoumaru looks after Rin like a daughter, Sephiroth (before he wen cuckoo) cared for Zax like an older brother, Inuyasha is a father figure for Shippo and Kuja finally found it in his heart to haul his younger brother out of trouble.
Leadership; Sephiroth is a General, Sesshoumaru is Lord of the West, Inuyasha leads his pack and Kuja straightout manipulates people, which could be called leadership if you squint hard enough…
Weapons; All save for Kuja are very skilled with blades and at least one other weapon.
Also, when it comes to other supposedly masculine traits- like logic, global positioning, etc, none of these characters fall short.
So, okay, they don’t look masculine but given their scores on all other ‘manly’ traits, I don’t think this type of character would be so out of place (and, as I said, they’d open avenues for humour lol.)
No pressure intended, however; I love the comic just as it is ^^
If you’re here looking for drawings of Kuja and Sesshoumaru, I’ll tell you now there are much greener pastures you could be grazing in.
Nah, not really; as I said,I love your comic as it is. Just thought it could be funny to see how the cast would react to some unmanly looking but, nevertheless very manly acting guys, that’s all. Twas just a suggestion ^^
Sorry if you were offended by my comments; the essay style answer wasn’t actually intended for you- it was a response to Gan saying I was trolling- I wasn’t, just making a suggestion (which, to be honest, I thought you would ignore anyway).
I certainly didn’t mean to seem presumptious and I’m sorry it came over that way. I write myself and I often get comments from people making suggestions as to plot twists, dialogue and scenes between characters. I’ve always found it entertaining and I’ve even included some suggested scenes (with the reviewer’s permisson). I didn’t realise that another writer would find such suggestions offensive. I’m sorry. I thought I’d made it clear enough that I loved the comic as it was, that I thought you were a great writer and I was just raising a suggestion.
(As for the scenes I jotted down, I said they were OOC at the time; they were just off-the top-of-my-head nonsense that I found funny)
As for the comic you produced; it was great (much better than my half-baked suggestions). I particularly loved the strip with Sesshomaru; his expressions were amazingly well drawn and the Commander’s response was cruel but spot-on hilarious.
I’m gonna give you probs Sophie. Owning up like that takes guts. And you proved that your a better sport than some other fans (flip forward one comic to see comments dropping the C-word for no reason). So honestly, hats off to ya.
I thought you were going to color this.
And then I ended up working overtime every night this week, funny how real life works.
Sadly true. Great comic either way.
If you do color this, you should just color Hawke. Because the black and white suites Fenris, his house, and his poor character development.
you are doing it wrong
I wasn’t aware that your religion forbid you from looking upon One True Hawke.
So, oh, BroVindalu, you most-likely ignore commentors requesting characters, but Jack Harkness. Come on, he’s manly enough to have sex with a guy AND show his bare ass on tv. More then twice.
He deserves it
Besides the point, I don’t care that I’m 15, female, and define unmanly, I wanna live there and be very happy for the rest of my life.
Manly Guys, Not Manly Girls. Girls with breads will creep anyone out. Sorry.
I don’t know, man…
To be honest, the quickest way to my heart is with a fresh baguette.
Really, this is so damn wicked, men shown as tough but knowing, loving but able, keep at it my dear rock on!!!!
You REALLY like Dragon Age, don’t you squid?
You never coloured? btw Someone stole my name so I used -original. (for anyone who can remember names on these huge comment sections)
Hello, from THE WORLD OF TOMORRROOOOOOOWWWWW!
Yeah, still black and white.
Honestly, it’s hilarious in hindsight.
