suggestion @Wilhuff , could try hosting on something like weebly (if that’s free) or make a booru for any collections


#4

Im in these right? Imma ctrl F to see
nvm not yet


#5

Probably should ask the thread OP if it’s okay to plug, even better if the thread OP plugs himself after being asked. Either way, looking forward to another realm comic series!


#7

Really good story (puts anything I can make to shame). I can’t wait to see how mind-meltingly awesome it’s going to be in comic form!


#8

is this the thing you’ve been asking me all those questions for? do I finally get to see all of these things actually happen?

not exactly in the mood for words atm, I think I’ll just wait for the comic for now. still interested in your follow-through though, I’ll be watching image


#9

There’s only one way to find out. Read the story and await the teasers…


#10

No worries, we’ve talked quite extensively. I was to get around to it, maybe after the first illustrations were posted here, but The Adventure Begins is a great read aswell.

Reddit might be a good place to drop a line @Wilhuff , bring a few more plebians to the forums

OWO ITS FINALLY HERE !!! holy

@Orsome very well drawn! So many talented artists in this forum.


#16

Lmao I kinda wanna try to draw one character


#17

I read the story and I like it. Seeing Shatter mentioned made me look at his realmeye cuz it made me realize I NEVER see him post on here anymore. And he has no characters. Doesn’t that mean he got banned???


#18

That just means all of his characters haven’t been seen in 15 days

OHH ok, so I guess he doesn’t play anymore. I didn’t think he got banned man he always seemed like one of the straight up realmers, ya know?
