So if you guys don’t know already, I’ve been working on a comic series based on stuff from the r/AntiMLM subreddit since May now. It’s been an on and off project for me and have a backlog, but it’s been a wonderful project to work on, especially since its the first time any of my projects have actually been recognized and followed.

Recently I approached Kennis the Menace, a Youtuber that covers some subreddits, asking her to give some coverage to the comics I did. She agreed and went ahead to make a video on it; the results are pretty interesting! Big thank you to her. Give it a look below, along with following her on social media linked below.

This one was a blast, despite having to draw so many figures. But the feedback was worth it!

 

Did you know that apparently it’s a thing to dress up as MLM products? Me neither. So Todd and company decide to show off some proper Halloween costumes. We have Todd as the Deus Ex Machina guy, Benthessia as Witch Mercy, Marcella as 2B and Vash’na as Sylvanas. Also enjoy the Gatchaman reference, too!

 

We have tons of subreddit references here, and all of the huns were from posts featured on the board during Halloween. Someone dressed up their kid as a Young Living oils bottle, as unbelievable as it sounds.

 

Looking at this from a general distance, I believe I mixed the colors real well on this one. This particular one looks a bit vibrant from the others. I think it has to do because I did most of the backgrounds and didn’t use filtered stock photos. Hmm…

I’ve been drawing for quite a long time. I sadly can’t say I’ve been drawing for most of my entire life, but it’s safe to say I’ve been drawing for 1/3rd if not more of it.

As described in my previous story about deviantART, my art skills didn’t really take off until I had access to the platform. A couple of years before that I had taken a short three-week special course at Walters State in a summer drawing class. That helped up my skills a whole bunch over my pre-teen drawings. It wasn’t great, but it wasn’t terrible, either.

This is the comic page that got the most attention. With over 400 upvotes on Reddit, getting posted both in other subreddits and even a Facebook group, it obviously struck a nerve with people. If it was good or bad, I have yet to see.

 

Now there was a censored version with this comic, and it was missing two frames of action. The subreddit was in a bit of a schism and I didn’t want the comic to feel like it was attacking anyone; but from the feedback I received, nothing was the matter and it was welcome. So I did the uncensored version a few months later.

 

This came on the height of a wave of posts over there, mainly from reps telling various people that their oils would cure things. From telling parents that it’d make their disabled kid walk again, to applying them to large open flesh wounds, and even a nutty mom who tried to douse her teenage son in essential oils to “get rid of his rebellious and moody behavior.” The latter especially served as a template for the mom in the comic.

 

Not much explaining here otherwise,  but it was fun to draw the squad in combat gear; took me a bit to figure out what kind of weapon Benthessia would use, but I kitted her with a shotgun as a nod off to Yorina’s armament. So please enjoy.

This was something I cooked up on Friday night. This is Benthessia, the protagonist’s new girlfriend from my Todd Squad Delta webcomic that I post on r/AntiMLM. I wanted to show her with a more softer and less stoic look, versus her regular appearance. Originally it was just going to be the figure, but it turned into a piece with a background and such.

 

I think I need to spend more time on Friday night drawing.

Taking a side detour from the main story, as I’m getting some feedback about the comic about the pace being a bit slow, and not too much MLM things happening. This particular one poked fun at this post; I knew that at least Benthessia could one-up her; what she’s doing is garters is anyone’s guess. But it’s certainly better than leggings!

 

This piece was posted out of sequence around August 12th (my birthday!), but would chronologically fall in place after the last Lipsense page. I’ve adjusted the links to reflect this.

Our adventure continues! Vash’na explains why she wanted to call starbase security on the hun. Some of her species backstory comes to light, and we get to the end of the introductory arc, ready to make their foray on Earth!

 

I had gotten some feedback from the guys at Anti-MLM Coalition with this panel, and had to cut on some of Vash’na’s species backstory. It honestly needs to be told to get a big picture of what’s going on, so maybe one day I’ll make a regular article then link it here. While this is set in a sort of alternate universe, the general history is the same.

 

Special thanks to Christina Weinman for the lineart of the 5th panel!
