Should be browsable now.
The first image was just a random sketch, but then I decided to make a little sequence out of it. I redrew the first image with her hair down later, it'll be posted next monday.
>I can already see some of that just in their pose.
Yep, that was intentional.
Heh, even if she did get magic'd into tall buff demoness, I don't think Alison could muster the kind of assertiveness this girl shows.
Can you blame her?
I added the speed controls to every mp4/webm based animation.
This is between volumes 4 and 5, right before she figured out the mystery of her wrist restraints. It's mainly a response to comments here:
You have to go way back to find the pregnancy sketch (or use the tag search)
Thanks, it can be hard to tell if people like things sometimes.
You're only watching too much GitS if you resort to watching Arise.
I definitely change to color of the scene intentionally to convey the mood, and I've tried to make different magical effects look different and stick out more than the mood lighting. The girl in Dark Altar is being directly influenced by magic, so her eyes glow. Mistress's eyes glow occasionally due to her innate magical nature.
I don't have an exact system worked out, I just try to make it look right.
What version of iphone do you have?
I don't think she'd need this much encouragement at this point.
I made this in my own animation program that I'm developing. It's very smooth because it's vector based with automatic interpolation. It's a bit tricky to animate lines that aren't visible in every frame with that system though, and I didn't really have the tools to fix things coded at the time, so I just sort of stopped.
I think a good way to do it might be to make everything see-through like you'll see in the next animation. I'll work on layering strategies once I get coloring added in.
I don't know, there are several things that people want to see more of.
She is blushing.
I see her as a warrior or some kind of tough-girl who finds herself conscripted into a demon breeding program. Maybe she's tested and is found to be very compatible or maybe she is chosen by a specific spirit.
An idea I had was that Melody (
?tags=Character-Melody ) should be more of an apprentice than a servant, and these two would be her next project - and prove to be a bit of a handful.
are the only bits that exist currently.
You'll have to describe the problem and tell me what browser and OS you're on. I've tested on Chrome and Firefox on win7, win10 and android.
>They look rather androgynous. Are they male? Or, immature female?
They have the ability to switch.
>Hard to tell, but they seem to have their horns hooked together.
They aren't but with the way they're shaped, they should be careful.
I'm sure they're back there somewhere
He got pranked pretty good.
Well it does involve 94 color images.
Her form was pulled from his subconscious, primed by the "choose the ideal form of servitude" command. Mistress knew she was getting a new girl, but the specifics were a surprise.
The next page contains 2 animations that take a lot longer to make than a static page. They're scheduled to be released in parts, first the line art versions, then color versions, then the scripted page. The first line art animation is up here:
Also try it on the https:// version of the site if you are not already
It's completely seamless on my win10 laptop with firefox 62.0.2. Can you take a screenshot of the issue?
What OS/Browser are you using?
If you can see this, you should be able to see the actual page:
You need a special link that I send out to active patrons on the 5th of each month. There's no way to tell if a new patron is legit or not before they have been charged and there are tons of bots and deadbeat accounts.
Those are his pupils left over from the previous page when I copied over the lighting layer. Fixed now.
Closing a padlock does not require the key.
I am alive, gonna try to catch up.
She's taking her shoes off in the second panel, hope that's clear.
The continuity police are out in force on this one. There, I changed it (might have to ctrl+f5).
Patreon lets you set a monthly limit, and you'll still get access to everything. Don't tell anyone though, it's a secret.
I can assure you that it is working. If you can't solve the problem on your end, the images are directly embedded in the patreon feed as well.
The prev/next buttons are messed up on the misc comics section. It's confusing because I want the newest page to show up first in the gallery so people can see what's new, sort of the opposite of the other comics. The index page (
) seems to be in the correct order though.
Works on my machines + phone. Google search says it might be a problem with safari, with the fix being to clear the cache.
The dialog in the last panel:
Alison: It.. it's not funny
Melody: Does your head fit through the collar?
Alison: Of course not, it hurts to even try
Melody: Oh my god you tried?! Ahaha!
>So is new Samus a replicant?
I sort of imagined her as an actress playing Samus in a movie.
The tiered pages for patrons have been around for a while, I've just made them easier to navigate to.
>Why is her neck ring still so big if she no longer has the wrist bracelets?
This great mystery will be revealed via flashback on the next page.
>And, don't women of her world change their clothes every day?
Well, he probably meant "how often you get a new outfit" or something to that effect.
She is cowering.
>this should be your 1000th upload, right?
I don't how to measure that exactly. This is image 1629 in the database, but that includes alternate versions for patrons, deleted images, and a few miscellaneous non-drawn images.
That is an error.
Check you patreon messages for the latest gallery link.
This was just a concept cover for the bits and pieces of the Lady Link x Gannon comic. The comic does not really have a coherent plot which is why it's in the sketch and bonus galleries instead of the main comic page.
I have some 3D models that I use for reference. They keep things generally in proportion and help out with perspective and mirror shots especially, but I often make changes to show the things that I want to show. Here I was mainly concentrating on mistress's pose and the penetration action (naturally) and I didn't go back and do a sanity check on Alison's leg positioning.
I also have a blank figma model, which is way better than any of those wooden artist's models I've seen, but I only have one and the proportions and height are standard. Mistress and Alison have a large height difference and slightly supernatural proportions, which makes the 3D models a better option.
Yeah, you're right. It's not exactly brilliant in the other panels either. Drawing is hard.
This was on /d/ but I don't go there often because the signal to noise ratio is terrible.
>Are there any other works with the darker character?
This was just a one-off. I think it may have been something for a 4chan request thread.
Were you hoping for a fashion montage? I don't really have one but I could put one in.
Not dead yet, I have several pages of linework done for this and I'm starting on dialog and color. I'd like to finish them before I start posting.
>I've read that water is hard to draw.
It can be difficult if you're going for a super realistic style with lots of diffraction - but less is more in this case. Notice I didn't really draw any water, I just drew some shiny bits in the air.
>It's interesting that she knew what to expect.
She looked around a bit when she first "arrived". I can't show everything because it'd take up too many panels. Also I'd have to think of everything in advance.
Eh, I think if you're going to build a huge demonic summoning/containment feature into your floor, you'll probably take the time to make it drain properly. The "towel rod" is actually a lever that controls the water - it's strictly mechanical. I'd imagine each of the alcoves addresses some need, much like the elements on the points of a traditional pentagram.
>So can we take that to mean that Allison still 'counts' as an man for magical purposes?
She has some residual male energy that is slowly being worked out of her. Note how soundly she slept after giving in to her physical desires.
>Is her size related to her powers, or are demons just naturally huge?
Alison is ~5"1" and barefoot. Mistress is 5'10" and tends to wear high heels. She is not supernaturally large, but her physique may be influenced by how much she "feeds".
>will we see again the statuesque fellow that called on Mistress when she was out last chapter?
He'll be around.
>What's his deal?
Heh, he's mainly a prop for Alison to interact with.
>Heh, did he used to be a woman?
Those are not mutually exclusive conditions. Real life example:
The position is slightly exaggerated in the comic due to the dude being huge.
She is part succubus, which gives her certain powers over men. Through sex, she is able to drain their life force and use it to bolster her own strength and will. She can also influence, and even enter, their dreams.
She does not have any direct ability to cast spells, but her natural abilities give her quite a leg up on using magical artifacts. Her mild psychic ability and experience manipulating men make it easy for her to the weak points that a transformation spell needs to take hold.
I use an Intuos3 6x11 graphics tablet.
More lady Link or more alternate outfit selectors?
Well there'd have to be some support or padding in that dress to keep her from poking through... and she may have put on a few pounds.
I will color this picture. Expanding it to full body would probably be a bit weird.
Fixed again probably.
Not the slavegirl.
Maybe. She's squishing them down a bit.
When I draw a character, I'm often figuring out their design and back story as I go. Not every image is going to be canon or in chronological order.
It's just a sketch. There's underwear in the colored version.
She has a tattoo on her face and on her shoulder. I assure you they are supposed to be stationary. Drawing is hard.
In retrospect, it's a terrible character design because I have to draw the tattoo all the time and I don't even have a firm design for it, I just scribble some vaguely tribal and nautical looking lines. It pretty much rules out any animation.
She's from an h-game called "Love Fetish". It's got some pretty decent animation, check it out on gelbooru.
One mirror and 4 alcoves. An infinite hall of mirrors takes a long time to draw.
I much prefer getting girls pregnant the old fashioned way.
>In that last panel, did you create the language used there, or was it an already created alphabet?
It's Iokharic script from D&D.
>Was the missing mirrored eye glow in frame 3 on purpose?
It's there, it's just not as glowy since you're looking at it from a shallow angle.
I don't do a huge amount of planning.
>It would be nice to talk directly to you.
You can DM me on patreon if you want, but if we're going to speculate about lore I'd rather do it publicly so other people can read and respond.
>your use of color has been extremely limited
This is mainly for aesthetic and production reasons. When someone is under magical influence it will be much more obvious. You could call the current color palette foreshadowing if you want.
>Why would Allen/Allison be entirely ignorant of magic?
Alison's original name is not revealed. Melody just starts picking names, perhaps not even aware of his/her situation, and Mistress offers a correction. It's not even clear if Mistress bothered finding out his name, she didn't seem that interested in his file.
Dialog in the first chapter indicates that Alison is aware of transformation magic. As for his reaction to the transformation, well, I'm aware of crocodiles but I'd still be pretty surprised if one bit me in the leg.
>you've got obvious magic-wielding women
The 4th wall reason why they have tattoos is to look cool/tough (thus making it more interesting to 'defeat' them), and it's not a bad in-universe reason either. I wouldn't necessarily prescribe it to magical ability, seems more of a warrior/barbarian thing to do to me.
>are the two women in a storyline that doesn't intersect with Allison's?
They're definitely in the same world with the same captors. I don't know if they'll have a reason to meet.
It is a countdown until the next image is posted:
>Dude transformed into a girl, no problem
>Girls shirt is removed without being explicitly shown, impossible
Or.. or .. wait. It's a birthday party. Like in that movie "the game".
You're a ghost.
It's probably just a spike pit. Short 4 page comic.
There's two groups of readers: people alarmed about Stockholm syndrome, and people ready to volunteer to get Stockholm syndrome. I'm not entirely sure the groups are mutually exclusive.
You're reading an awful lot into a girl having green eyes.
>why keep feeding another mouth?
Some mouths are worth more than others. Actually that's a great caption for
It's a drawing.
It should probably block the rest of her ass too, not just the tattoo. But then you wouldn't be able to see her ass.
When the timer reaches 0, a new image will automatically be posted.
Yes, Lighter Chains will resume at some point. From my patreon post:
I'm in a bit of a rut on Lighter Chains - I know where I want it to go but the scenes aren't coming to me easily. Rather than bash my head against it, I decided to make a different comic and come back to it later.
There is no dialog or narration in this comic, there is no back story (use your imagination for now ;), it's just action.
>Are you okay
Yes. My life is a series of different projects and I'm not good at balancing them. I have posted a patreon update.
>Have you always drawn the teeth.
Teeth made their first appearance all the way back in volume 1 page 1. And you're totally right that her teeth are messed up here. Someday I'll post a page where I'm happy with every panel, but today is not that day.
>Is the balance of power shifting a little?
We'll have to wait and see! Keeping up a purely dominant facade is hard work.
>So was the mercenary a virgin before he was transformed into a woman?
She's not exactly overflowing with confidence, is she? Any experience he might have had before doesn't really apply here.
Or maybe doing her taxes, or trying to figure out the security questions on her online banking accounts. The possibilities are endless!
Hah pretty much. That's why you should always make your plot be "oops i'm a girl, time to jump on all the dicks!"
There are no body changes in the second frame.
