I slept for 14.5 hours after finishing this My hand was shaking so freaking bad by the end of this that for the last 5 or more pages, my lines are SO MISERABLE. And shading? what shading?! there is none--I didn't have the time because I decided to use white out to fix what mistakes I could-- ಠ_ಠ
This story was only a vague idea in the back of my head inspired solely by the song "Let the river in" by Radical Face. I didn't even have names for the characters or plan on animal ears until the event actually started at midnight. All I knew is that I wanted this story to end with them both dying (;A; I'm awful) but it an easy out for a comic that needed to end at "page 24". What resulted was this disturbing mess, that I'm somehow in love with.
Process:
I used the first 2 hours to quickly do character designs and storyboard the whole thing with dialogue <-- honestly saved me a lot of time in the long run but lemme say, they were foul looking pages ~_~
And then I just went for it. 20.5 hours later, I'd finished penciling and then inking all of this. I was so exhausted around page 09 I didn't think I was gonna be able to finish--but I went outside and rolled around in the grass. Did the trick and woke me up.

My sleep depravity had me lost when updating. All the pages got put in out of order, and half of them got uploaded to the wrong chapter(midnight frog)LMAO. I seriously had no concentration left in me but I fixed it all somehow.
------------
Thank you for reading my little comic. This event was brutal and amazing to participate in.

@Leafy Savanna Chan: .//. Thank you so much for saying so. I really enjoyed working on this. I might do something more with it someday after I finish my current ongoing comic ^^

@snowblinded: o_o Yea..it got pretty intense there at the end; I may have actually been sweating while drawing this because I was so tense (both with plot and the exhaustion)!
Wasn't sure how this was gonna turn out cramming it into 24 pages but I'm so happy you liked it!
Thank you for reading!

@Gothic Kitty: :o you're welcome and thank you too!!! I like the idea of doing more with this in the future especially since it's been so well received. I'm curious what I could do with it when I can actually take my time TuT Thank you for reading my crazy little comic baby

@snow crystal: Aww you're too kind Snow o//o I think it SCREAMS "I was pressed for time" but I'm glad it didn't come across that way to you. ^^;;; haha
And I'm seriously thrilled that you're torn with your feelings of "horrible" and "beautiful" (;A;). I really wanted to write a sad story that left readers with mixed feelings--a story that tugged on heartstrings. Aaaaand.... admittedly, I needed an ending climatic enough to *drive* me to wanna draw until the end. Cuz' honestly, I almost didn't make it through this event. o_O; I was so delirious.
Thank you so much for stopping by and reading this <3

@Leandro: o_o Hey, wow, thank you so much for saying so!! Um, my short-term plan is to edit these pages soon (shade, tone, and ink more) just so I have a finished product for myself personally...but these pages will, of course, stay on here "as-is" to show what I managed to complete in the 24hr block.

Long-term however, to be completely honest, I wasn't sure if anybody would even like this kind of story! I didn't know if readers would find it too...bizarre(?)..
But I'm pleasantly surprised--and would surely like to do more with this when I find the time....expand it, explore the plot more, and maybe make it a little bit darker too. (I'm kind of a big horror junkie so I'd probably go all out with the re-make).
But anyway, thanks so much for reading my comic Leandro!--I really enjoyed yours too. You made me laugh the whole way through with Turp and Gurp's charm..and that hellishly strong weed your bloke smoked. ( I assume it was weed at least XD)haha

@MegaAnimeFreak7: ~_~ hope you enjoyed. It's not light and fluffy like ismw at all

@AsianIdiot16: Hey, thank you so much! ;A; I'm glad you liked it!! (Even though it's a little twisted and sad ~_~)
--
I'll have to look up that mangaka--that story sounds awesome.
(p.s. for some reason, when I replied to you AGES AGO on here, I typed in Daisuke Uchiha instead of your username >_> I'm so sorry about that!)

@redleaveshavefallen: Woah, thank you! O_O I can't believe you hopped over and read my little 24 hour comic too. Wow...I'm quite overwhelmed by your comment (pretty much at a loss for words really)...but thrilled that you enjoyed reading this. And I really appreciate you stopping by.
:3 Thank you so much!

Wow. This is... disturbingly beautiful.

Wow, that was intense. I likes :)

Reply Gothic Kitty, October 22nd, 2012, 7:26 am

Really like it! Would love to see more of this and to know more too!

Thanks for sharing!

Incredible. It doesn't give off a feeling of being made in only 24 hours at all... it's so... horrible and beautiful... so horribly beautiful.
Damn.
Why do I even think of something this scary as beautiful?

But it is.

My greates compliments, you did great!!

Reply Leandro, October 22nd, 2012, 1:09 pm

Awesome This is a great concept. Are you making it into a "Chapter 1" for a bigger story, or do you plan to leave it at that? 'Cause I really like the idea, and I think it can be explored more.

Reply MegaAnimeFreak7, October 22nd, 2012, 11:41 pm

W-wow...

Reply MegaAnimeFreak7, October 23rd, 2012, 9:10 pm

@BadBanana: I just... I can't... WOW!

Reply AsianIdiot16, October 24th, 2012, 10:09 pm

That was just...... amazing. So sad though
It reminded me of a mangaka called itou junji or something like that. They made a manga about a special honey that when u eat it, it tastes heavenly but then an invisible monster comes and steps on u. U go splat.

This is just incredible. This story..... Is just amazing. It's late, and I don't have the mental faculties necessary to praise this like I should, my words are gone. But let me just say, I am awed. I am in complete awe. Stories like this capture my imagination so perfectly. Just... wow.
