See? Who expected that? It's surprising, but not in a way that you could have seen it coming...

Orphan Girl is Oralee from Wake the Sleepers by Kristy.

The other, which you may or may not recognize, fulfills a promise I made to Model S a long time ago, and is a toy of his character Soja :)

As for the overall storyline, I guess that you can see that we didn't make it very far into the building... I guess we'll have to wait to see what's up there :)

Take care everyone, and have a great weekend!

I gave you a 5 today, for sheer Chaos factor, good show!

So where can I get my Orphan Girl, and Soja dolls (for my kids honest)?

Are you recommending "Wake the Sleepers", and does Soja have a web comic?

@Kristy - Thanks for letting us use her :)

@model S - I told you we would :) Took us a while, but there you have it ;D

@greengirl77 - Me too :D He's adorable like that.. ;)

@MatthewJA - Talk to Kristy about the Oralee plushie :D

@Brain eater - Haha :) Yeah, it's harder to see on the small one :D

@Ice the frosty cat - Just so long as you share with R.Z. :)

@Spinnerlink - He is certainly looking a little shaggy...

@Onecanofsprite - o.O What kind of shows are you watching?

@Kyo - Because you watched her draw it? :P

@Zomburai - Let's not forget "And I was told to stay outside where it's safe!"

@T.Gatto - Of course I recommend Wake the Sleepers :) You may recognize the Oralee doll from the picture that Kristy and June collaborated on with R.Z. saving a little girl from the fire :D

@magraven: it's still completely epic to see it done.

@anyone that cares to know: the promise of a soja toy was made 9/30/2010. as they were accepting people to guest star as ones, i asked if they could use soja as a one or one of phantom's men or something. sadly after a discussion they couldn't because he was so visually distinct. however James said the next time R.Z. has toys soja would be one of them.

@T.Gatto: no, i don't have a comic yet. i've got a few ideas, but nothing i want to publish just yet.
model S (Guest) edit delete reply
also: here's hoping the soja doll which R.Z. will more than likely refer to as "Zombie guy" or "mister one" will show up more! <3

Yeah John, use your brain. How could Sylene fit in the box?

Unless she was really, really flexible.

Mmm.... flexible Sylene....

They're for themselves, it doesn't matter what they say
Promise the world then take it from you anyway
They'll break you down making your vision fadeaway
It's time to go: get off of my case
model S (Guest) edit delete reply
-shakes a can of sprite up and goes to pop the tab- hush you or i'll kill your brethren!... that's way less threatening than i planned it to be.

@bbedlam: flexible remote controled sylene AND beth, in your bedchamber, while you have the remote.... end. of. line.

Wake the Sleepers is now on my list of web comics to read, and with a 3 day weekend pending it should be soon.

@ model S; If you ever get around to a comic with Soja, I promise I'll try it out, so why not give it a try sometime?
model S (Guest) edit delete reply
@T.Gatto: thing is Soja will most likely be a background character at best. he was created for D&D when i was 10, his backstory is a joke, hell my friends make fun of it. he was just supposed to be the badass jack of all trades bent on killing due to some serious psychological issues. translation: they needed a powerhouse, they got way more than they bargianed for

the idea i have right now is an X-men based, or more closely "Static Shock" based idea. it's not a bad idea, and soja will show up atleast once in awhile even chat with the main cast.probably even be mentioned by name. but he's done his job. i just don't need him these days.that's why this comic makes me so happy. soja's last real fling in the lime light before he finally just.. burns out.

758 characters. i'm getting closer to ending on the 1000 character mark when i ramble.

@Magravan&Skrael: thanks for the shoutout. it really means alot to me.

I think John is going to have quite a few interesting choices to make in the near future! Muahahahaha! :)

@model S - I'm glad that you enjoyed it :) I knew it was going to take a while before the story allowed him to get access to more toys, but I thought that this was a good opportunity, considering the nature of the building :)

Definitely not Zombie Guy.. He sees more higher level, well groomed zombies than messed up ones, so his opinion of what is or is not a zombie is probably pretty skewed..

@bbedlam - She could have the contortionist model? :)

@Onecanofsprite - lol :)

@model S - Yeah... that's not such a great threat... Maybe if you did it overtop of a laptop or something.. ;)

@T.Gatto - I really enjoy WTS, and Kristy is an awesome creator too ;)

@model S - Or maybe it's something that says "It's an interesting visual design, maybe I should revamp the character concept so that he's viable again..."

And you're welcome for the shoutout ;) Thanks for sticking around :)

@jordanch68 - Oh? Like what? :P
model S (Guest) edit delete reply
1)true, i guess he wouldn't think "zombie" with the messed up look. hmmh. well if it shows up again i'm sure you'll think of something for R.Z. to call him.

2)his name is "one can of sprite" therefore a can of sprite is like a brother or barent or... some kind of relitive to him. so i'm threatening his family... i think... it just didn't sound as evil when i typed it out.

3) hmmh perhaps. y'know what. fsk tossing him. i'm making him main cast in my comic. why the hell not. he's stuck around for 12 years, he's a badass, and i'm gonna give him a level in badass.now i just need to figure out what CAUSED the whole thing.
Gupy (Guest) edit delete reply
Well, to be fair to John with How detachable we see most Zombie Parts being in this comic she probably could be. Haha
Magravan edit delete reply
Magravan
@model S - I'm not sure if he'll give him a name yet :) As for the cans, I figured that was the reason, but it was still kind of meh so far as a threat goes :P And yeah, backstory is really good to know, even if people aren't ever going to see much of it... It helps to keep track of the things that are going on, and achieve a consistent, understandable story (to you as a writer, even if the readers are going wtf?)

@Gupy - That's very true... I'm not sure if John has seen how portable they are capable of being yet :)
model S (Guest) edit delete reply
i know it's a bit to ask but could you email me a sample togm script? so i can see how you do it? so i can better myself as a writer before i begin on this venture... ^^
Magravan edit delete reply
Magravan
Ahahahahaha.. I'll find one to post, but I'm not sure it's an example you'd want to follow :D

From Strip 149:

Panel 1:

Background:
Characters:
Action: Phantom and Sylene with a Two partially in the room.

Dialogue:
Phantom: Don't you understand? Robert controls everyone with his TOGM supply and enhancements. We get by here on what little we can steal.
Phantom: If we had someone who had that information, we could give people a choice!
Two: Phantom, the Scouts are reporting we've got some visitors...

Panel 2:

Background:
Characters:
Action: Alexander and Beth, Beth looking stiff like she can't move.

Dialogue:
Alexander - It doesn't matter whether he remembers who he is... People can rally behind the idea of someone standing up against Robert...
Beth - I.. I can't move... My body isn't responding at all...

Panel 3:

Background:
Characters:
Action: Phantom and Sylene just outside a door of the building.

Dialogue:
Phantom - Everyone has to work here, but they get an equal access to what we have.
Phantom - I look like I've been dragged through a warzone because I don't hoard everything for myself.
Phantom - Robert controls everyone else to make himself better.

Panel 4:

Background:
Characters:
Action: Alexander with Beth over his shoulder.

Dialogue:
Beth - What are you doing?!
Alexander - I can't stop myself! My body is responding on its own!
Beth - That's what they all say! Let me go!!


As you can see, I've stopped putting in the backgrounds / character information since most of the time it's just "Same as the last 15 times you've drawn it.."
Skrael (I'm the artist)
Magravan posted one of the better ones. Often I don't even get a description of what's going on at all, just dialogue :/
Magravan edit delete reply
Magravan
Well yeah, it's more helpful for him to see one that would sort of work on it's own :) A lot of times it's just dialogue and then I'll verbally fill in the details if she needs them. :)

I try not to be too specific about what's going on in the art side because I am not an art guy, so I am not necessarily a great person to define it specifically...

There are some where I am very exact on what I want, because I envision it a certain way and want that conveyed, but normally, it's free to her imagination. :)
model S (Guest) edit delete reply
this actually really helps alot, i'm gonna copy this and use is as a base template thank you so much for being so supportive of this. wether it works or not it's still great to get so much help towards it. and i really consider you both friends. so thanks ^_^
