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…

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.

I think at least 2/3rds of my time on this comic is being spent on backgrounds. Someone on Reddit made the comment that it’s not wasted, however. I set the tone and scene really well! So there’s that.

 

I decided to give Todd and Benthessia the other companions from the first comic, and let them come along for the ride. More people for the readers to love, right?

 

You can tell I had fun showing these characters linking up with each other.

 

And yes, Benthessia meditates, Vash’na has a plush whale and those are space guns below her.

So this is a project I took on after seeing some stuff over on r/AntiMLM, but you can say that this would be my first full-developed comic for quite awhile! I definitely don’t plan to stop this series, so hang in there and I’ll keep putting pages out.

 

I actually have this on a vote, and the peeps over there get to vote who becomes Todd’s girlfriend, along with some general story plots and directions. You’ll see some of that reflected in the second page when it comes out.

 

And yeah, those text boxes kind of burn the eyes; I’ve never done a comic page before; I’ll get better as I go along.
