SPLOOSH!

Today is my friend Hannah’s birthday! Happy birthday Hannah! <33 She's been a great motivator and a good friend, not to mention TMK's very first fan! She has a couple drawings in the gallery, you should check them out! :D

Speaking of birthdays, TMK will be one year old on November 1st! I’m kind of amazed I’m still chugging along, but happy too! I know TMK moves pretty slow compared to other webcomics, and I wish I could do more, but That’s Life. And still, despite my slow pace, you guys have stuck around and leave comments and vote and I couldn’t thank you enough! I’m hoping to get something special up for the first, but we’ll see how everything goes. Thank you, thank you, thank you! <333

Okay enough mushy stuff. For TWC this week I have a wallpaper-sized version of the page where Loki steals his and Coal’s new mode of transportation (whose name will be revealed in the next page, actually). It’s only in one size, but it’s still pretty big, and hopefully for you smaller screened people it won’t be hard to resize. :3 Thanks again everyone!


Discussion (27) ¬

  1. Awesome XD But frankly: Lurch? What SFX is Lurch? O_o

    • It’s a verb as a sound effect! I use them when I’m not sure what else to put. Like “hop.” :D Thanks!

      • guessed so :D. It just looks odd to me personally…XDafter all, I’m german and in german lurch is some sort of lizard

        • HAHA really? Awesome. At least it’s not German for something inappropriate. XD

          • If it were I’d have long time written you a PM over on DA to notify you in private instead of where everyone could read it so you have a chance of silently and innocently changing things :)

  2. A lot of webcomics use onomatopoeia for sound effects. I think lurch describes the boat getting under way from being buried in the ground quite aptly.

    Also, I just wanted to say that I love the art in the third panel! Absolutely gorgeous!

    • Exactly right! It’s easier (and probably more comprehensible) than making up some jumble of consonants. And thank you! :D

  3. Boaty looks so happy on first panel xD

    And I loved how you did the water on the last <3 May have forgotten to say that before, but I love your Style 8D

    And in case you are interested in how it's looking on my Desktop – http://img89.imageshack.us/img89/5944/tmkwall.jpg
    Staying there until I get my hands on the other Loki Wall from the previous vote incentive 8D

    • Haha! Awesome! I’m glad it fits your screen so well! Hopefully that second wallpaper will be up soon. Thanks!

  4. Thank you so much Sarah. <3

    It's been such a pleasure watching this comic develop. I'm liking the ATB (All-Terrain Boat), and the chalky texture on the sound effects.

    • Thank YOU for everything. <333 Also "ATB" is awesome.

  5. I like dem trees dem trees.

  6. WEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE! Let’s go to the top of the hill and do it again!

    • That would be a pretty fun ride. XD Like Splash Mountain! :O

  7. Sarah, I think you’re being a little hard on yourself about the pace of the comic. You’re doing a great interpretation of Viking mythology, with beautiful artwork. I think you’ve got a right to feel proud of yourself!

    • Awww, thank you! I do feel proud, I just wish I could do more! At least I haven’t missed a single update so far! >D That’s something. Thanks again!

  8. Ooooooh, that wallpaper sized incentive looks great on mah desktop, thank you! :D

    • Haha, you’re welcome! I’m glad it works! XD

  9. I love the artwork in this one:P

  10. Man, you could keep drawing environments for years and I’d never get tired.

    • Aww, thank you! And actually that’s good, because that’s just what’s going to happen. XD

  11. I am so glad that you have reached the 1 year mark. Here’s hoping you can keep goning for many more to come. Another excellent comic I was following, Heritage, has kind of gone defunct because of RL complications for the author/artist.

    • Awww thank you! I hope I can keeping going for many more years too. However I don’t blame other artists who have to stop comicking because of real life stuff. I’m very fortunate to have a steady job that allows me enough free time to manage a comic, but not everyone is. Sometimes life throws them lemons and never lemonade, which can wear down anyone, or they work so hard to turn those lemons into lemonade that they just can do much more than that. I’m a very lucky person, and I hope that any artist who’s pulled from something they love so much is able to return unscathed.

      Knock on wood. *does so*

  12. Loki: Coal! Grab my beard.

    Coal: ….Okay….*yank*

    Loki: ADVENTUUUURREEEE!

    Someone needs to do it. I can’t draw worth crap or I would. XD

    • HAHA! I’ve seen spoofs of that all over but I have no idea where it’s originally from! Makes me laugh anyway. XD
