Something like ten years by damnskippy Something like ten years by damnskippy
Started sketching the other night, and this rambling collage occurred. Characters from my old webcomic Demonology 101 that I started something like ten years ago and drew regularly until 2004 (when I graduated from school). I wanted to do a nice 10 year anniversary picture for the comic, but I can't remember if I started it in 1999 or 2000... anyway, this is not that picture. This is a doodle that got out of control.

I haven't decided how I'm going to finish this thing. If anyone's interested in colouring it, I have a hirez file. :P

EDIT: Okay, enough people asked: here's the hirez file. Go nuts! [link]

Love D101. Can't remember when I started reading or who got me hooked. I do know it was before it was finished. Love this collage.

Did I comment on this before? No idea...

I remain a fan of D101, as much as I am excited for all of your new projects (and your publishing gig! And the fact that I saw your name in a copy of Writer's Magazine! I went running to my roommate to say "But I KNOW who that IS!") I'm still amazed by the fact that you finished it, and by the hand-done art, and most of all by the heart of the story. I hope another epic story is in your future contracts, because you tell them marvelously.

Aw, thank you so much! ^_^ It's so great to know people enjoyed my work that much... makes all the suffering and hard work worth it. Almost. ;)

I did finish reading the comic a little while back, and I must say that you managed to fit some of my favourite themes and character types into one comic.
Warring brothers was one of those. I sink my teeth into a good 'brothers at odds' story. Especially when they get stabby.

And Gabe was such a peach.

This is great! I used to follow Demonology 101 (while in class, no less.) I remember it ended the same year I graduated. It had a big impact on me artisticly.

I'm tearing up right now. that's right, I'm not ashamed to admit it. (any chance of a series reboot?). My first webcomic (my first comic of any kind, actually) and still my favourite.

aw, I miss these guys something awful.

Aw, it's okay. *patpat* Super nice to hear that comic was enjoyed by so man. Honestly, I would love to return to it, but I think it's important for me to move on to other projects now. Maybe a few more years down the road when I have more leverage in the publishing industry, I'll pitch a rework. Maybe someday. :)

Demonology 101 was one of the first webcomics I ever read, as well as the first one I ever read that had a proper ending. I remember it fondly :)

I always thought that comic was good. I think I started reading it around 2000. Quickly became an addict...

Wow, has it really been that long? I adored reading it, which I got to do after it was done. (I rambled my way through a review, even [link] )

I would love, love, love any further materials for D101.

If it was 1999 that you started posting it, it was very late 1999. I remember first reading D101 in the Summer of 2000, and there weren't many pages up then.

Oh, and your web comic was my first :)

Do you remember when during the summer of 2000 you started reading the comic? I know I started it in August, but I'm not sure if it was 1999 or 2000.

It would have been the summer of 2000 then. I only remember 'cause I had graduated high school that year. Hope that helps.

I do so enjoy seeing Demonology 101 emerge once in awhile. That was a nice surprise to wake up to!

I like that Mackenzie is the only one to have her entire body in the picture. Seems very indicative of her personality somehow.

Did you draw this all out on the same sheet of paper, or did you sketch it out separately?

You know, Its Demonology that inspired me to go to art school for illustration. I always wanted to be an illustrator, but never thought I could be good enough at art to do it. But then I read Demonology and saw how much more awesome your art got through the years while you were in school and It gave me the right push to do it. Im in art school in San Francisco now. Its awesome. Thankyou so much.

This is the comic that I knew you for and what I rushed home after class to read. :) I know stories must end and artists move on, but I think its awesome you're still doing 101 art. Totally loved all the characters.

Oh wow, Nostalgia at max. Your's was one of the first webcomics I read if not the first and still remains to this day the most amazing out of all of them. You just managed to incorporate such an even blend of drama, humor, character development and a very well thought out story.
Leithe is still my favorite character for some odd reason, that inspired an hour long debate with my elder sibling on why I liked him and why she didn't. Good times.

I'll have to dig up the images on the D101 site with colour on them though.
If you're alright with it chuck the hirez file my way at rose.morgan@glitterguts.net. Or upload it someplace else and note me the link.

Thanks. :D

Aww man, definitely brings back memories. Hmm, definitely tempted to color it, I don't know if I have time! Hmm.

Anyway, looks great, I've always loved little montages of characters.

Well that's a half hour of work burned on a nostalgiac rereading of Episode 5. Good stuff.
Funny how everyone's looking out of the corner of their eyes XD

I need an excuse to do some more coloruing. Any chance I could get my mitts on that hirez?
