Chainsmoke Preview p01 - 05 by el-roacho Chainsmoke Preview p01 - 05 by el-roacho
So, first off, I want to say that I have no idea when or if I will be uploading more of these to the internet. This is a preview for that thing I've been working on. You know the one. These five pages were actually done last year for my project pitch, and there are definitely more than this sitting around on the sidelines. ;)

The reason I stopped on the one-shot before was because it just wasn't working out. It was out of context, not particularly well written (even when I first made it), and something about doing this as a weekly web series just didn't sit right with me. And though it's debatable whether or not THIS story is well-written, at least it's organized and plotted out to a final stage that I'm happy with. :)

Chainsmoke is a 3 part character-driven story about the misadventures of that skinny dude there, Ralph Spencer. Well... it's more than that, truthfully. But you'll have to wait and see. It contains a pretty wide gamut of content - horror, comedy, fantasy, cheesy science... Everything I love and hate is going into this as I work through as much of it as I can this year.

I hope that you guys will enjoy seeing a small portion of it while I finish working on my current project!

[EDIT: Thanks so much for the DD! And thanks to everyone checking out my work, favoriting, watching and whatnot! I appreciate it a lot and I'm glad you enjoy the work!

On a second note, I just want to be clear, since a few people commented on it, that this book isn't supposed to carry an anti-smoking message, or anything even remotely close. :lol: I mean, I'm a cheesy writer, but not that cheesy! When I write an after school PSA, you'll know it, and maybe I will in the future. ;) Knowing is half the battle, and the Power is Yours, and all that. Thanks again, all!]

Daily Deviation

Given 2011-04-04
*GloomyUnderwoods says, "Right after I saw this comic here Chainsmoke Preview p01 - 05 by *el-roacho I thought this is a total looker, I must suggest this as a Daily Deviation. The whole thing catches your eyes and sucks you into the story with excellent poses and perspectives, and a good flow in panels. This artist's style automatically keeps you interested for what's next to see."

It's not often that you see something so different that it totally changes how you look at art. This piece is one of them. It is so refreshing to see a work that screams its character's personalities without being banal or cliche and a style that is so different from what I've seen so far. Your grasp of color and realistic anatomy is flooring. I will be looking forwards to the finished product with great anticipation.

Oh wow, this is such a great compliment. I'm floored that anyone would think that highly of this, or anything else I do. Seriously, thank you so much! I'm happy to hear that my work resonates with people. :heart:

Haha, I saw this piece a few days ago, and I was stunned by it. I actually thought "How comes this isn't a DD?!"

Glad to see it is now. :D

I have actually stopped adding things to my favourites list for a while just so this can be on my front page to remind me to stare at it again, haha

I am saddened by this! You should smoke twice as much. Drink and gamble too. And eat lots of candy. Willy Wonka would want it that way~

Haha but actually, the comic isn't supposed to carry an anti-smoking message at all. Glad it made an impact though. :B
