The Crimson Fly #18: "Wait, am I going down...?"

                   


Vol. 01
Issue #2: Testing, 1-2-3 (#18)

This week, the Crimson Fly is lucky there's a dumpster to break his fall!... Unless there's broken glass in there... or metal... or dirty diapers... Well, hey, you can live without your dignity (and possibly your spleen), right?

STATIC COMIC LINK!
ANIMATED VIDEO LINK!

IN OTHER NEWS (05/25/2015):
Hey Everybody! Happy Memorial Day. I wish I had something profound to say to any service-men/women/other who might be reading this comic other than "Thank you," but unfortunately, I don't. Thank you for your service and sacrifice, and I wish that (at least, in the US) our country did better by you when your service is done.

In other, other news, I finished compiling Issues #1 & #2 into animated app and full videos a while ago back, and shared it with some friends.  The feedback I got was positive in regards to the videos, but also sparked a discussion in regards to another Crimson Fly idea I had, which I will be implenting soon in the future.  Nothing drastic (at least, regarding the animated and static comic sites), but it will be a doozy.  I'd hoped to have the announcement ready today, but well, that didn't happen. Stay tuned for updates on Tumblr (http://thecrimsonfly.tumblr.com) and Youtube (http://youtube.com/user/skipperwing). Its going to be awesome (I hope).

The Crimson Fly #17: "What are you doing up here?"

Vol. 01
 Issue #2: Testing, 1-2-3 (#17)

Well this couldn't backfire somehow! I mean, it worked in Spider-man 2.... Oh wait, no, it didn't...

IN OTHER NEWS (05/18/2015):
Over the weekend, the power supply to my laptop decided it didn't like being twisted into a pretzel and gave out on me.  The crappy thing about this is that I work on a Microsoft Surface Pro 2, and Microsoft essentially abandoned the thing as part of their SP3 launch/pissing contest with Wacom (who did the drivers for the SP1 and SP2, so replacement tech is a little hard to come by.  Fortunately, nothing is forgotten on the internet, even hardware, so I was able to find a replacement on Ebay. Yay! Also, luckily for you guys, this is what the buffer is for, so this won't affect the strip. Yay for that too. It still sucks because the new power supply is supposed to arrive sometime this week, and I can't do anything but fiddle with scripts until it gets here.

The Crimson Fly #16: "What the Hey?!"

                   

STATIC COMIC LINK!
ANIMATED VIDEO LINK!

Vol. 01
Story: Testing, 1-2-3 (#16)

He's called "the Crimson FLY" for a reason. Translucent wings are just easier to draw. Or they were tucked in his hoodie. Or I forgot to draw them last issue. Take your cop-out of choice or leave your own in the comments!

IN OTHER NEWS (05/11/2015):
So, I think I figured out how to stream video (Thank you, Open Broadcast Software!)and create/edit timelapse/speed paint videos (Thank you, Adobe After Effects!)!  You can catch me on picarto here: https://picarto.tv/live/channel.php?watch=SkipperWing.  Sadly, As some of you may know, Issue #2 is already done (gotta keep that buffer up and strong!), so you won't be seeing process videos for any of its strips, but when the process videos do start coming up, they'll be the Wednesday the corresponding strip (Update->Monday, Process Vid->Wednesday) goes up and, I guarantee, I'll let you know!  Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!

The Crimson Fly #15: "Woo Hoo!"

                   


Vol. 01
Story: 02 ("Testing, 1-2-3")

Aaaannnnd we're back! What, you didn't think the series was just going to be that one story, did you? I hope you didn't!  Anyway, we rejoin our hero, the Crimson Fly, hooping and hollering on the neighborhood rooftops! What "fun" awaits him this time?

*IN OTHER NEWS (May 3rd, 2015):

Things I am looking into:
-An online forum, for more chattiness. Thinking Forumotion.
-An online store. digital animated comic/video compilations first, then print copies.  Possibly Gumroad?
-Streaming? I have a Picarto account I hardly ever use, after all.

If you have any thoughts  (advice, stories, why/why not, etc.) on these, leave a comment below (or on facebook, tumblr, twitter or wherever) Thanks!
