Mark of Chaos

Wed Sep 4, 2013, 12:05 PM

Hi everybody,
i open this journal to talk about "Mark of Chaos", i think it would be nice to open a journal for each of my comic so that we could talk about it and answer to other related questions.

So i'll start with talking about how "Mark of Chaos" came to be.
"Mark of Chaos" before the comic adaptation was a fan fiction written by dragonia24 taking place during the episode "The Return of Harmony"  with the main protagonist being Discord and Celestia. Heart
FYI: This adaptation won't  be 100% faithful to the original fanfic, there could be something unexpected, so even if you read the fanfic you won't know all about this version ;) I really liked this fanfic because i enjoyed the idea of Discord running amok and creating chaos just for her… ehm i mean this in a nice way <3
I find it really romantic, intriguing and really funny, even if some parts weren't really cut out to my taste (some might be  a little vulgar).
Still i liked it enough to make a comic adaptation.
So i started this project like that…. for fun (and just to go against my boyfriend since he didn't want me to start drawing an erotic comic… yes "Mark of Chaos" is an erotic comic). Since i'm an illustrator/cartoonist i took this challenge head on and published the first page just to see what other people thought about it.

Many people asked me to keep working on it. The first pages have a more sketchy style but as i kept heading forward i started drawing them properly, reshaping also the first pages.
 At first i was working on this project alone but since i didn't have any previous experiences with erotic comics i asked two people to help me out and giving me some pointers.
From page 7 to 17 an italian girl helped me with various tips. But my established colleague that helps me with this comic is  Ajin  his help is essential for the right outcome of this project, since he has more experience with erotic comics.
Thanks to this  project, i keep driving myself into making something difficult and it helps building my confidence, since i find arduous making and scripting erotic comics. You have to keep in mind many things especially conveying the right emotions of the characters (that is something difficult to do). Drawing this comic does NOT make me feel like a pervert, to me it's just a challenge (even though when people talks about it in front of me i get beet-red >//< )

These are the pages of the comic  (including the covers).
FYI: the inside cover  is temporary and i'm going to make a new one and  i will change it  as soon as i can.
I would also like to reshape the old pages (or simply the ones i'm not sure about).

To be continued...

Right now i can't work on the next issue of "Mark of Chaos", since i'm currently working on other projects and comics intended for some italians conventions (MoC isn't one of them).

But… Don't worry i'll get back to it in November.

Well i guess that's all folks!
To the next project! :)

I really hope you get back to this, it was just starting to get good! I WANTS MORE! Reason being that with no new up dates, it feels like you're going to discontinue this for good after you're done doing......whatever it is you're doing.

Mi avevi chiesto qualcosa, vediamo cosa posso dire.

Non mi occupo di fumetto e non posso dire molto sulla parte grafica, a parte che le tecniche insolite di colore sono le mie preferite... per come si presenta la narrazione ha il pregio di evitare un difetto che trovo in altri webcomic, cioè di apparire frammentato tra una pagina e l'altra. Alcuni webcomic ti disorientano nel passaggio tra le tavole, forse perché si sente che sono fatti "un pezzo alla volta" e pubblicati man mano che vengono fatti. La narrazione qui è lineare.

Parlando del capitolo: ha sempre il difetto che ci si aspetta nelle clopfic, la situazione sembra sempre forzata. Anche qui alla fine sembra che Celestia ci cada come una mela matura giusto per caso, o giusto per la maledizione. Non conosco la fonte ma immagino che abbiate provato a fare un adattamento che comunque restasse abbastanza fedele all'originale.
Manca la manifestazione dei dubbi della protagonista. Mentre all'inizio è corretto che Celestia mostri solo ostilità, nella scena successiva andrebbe introdotto un qualche dubbio morale: andrebbe messa in discussione la validità della maledizione stessa. Discord doveva domandargli se davvero ci credeva o se nascondesse dell'altro (1000 anni di solitudine? Forse LUI era l'unica creatura che lo incuriosiva davvero, dato che lei era una creatura di ordine e integrità)? Mancano le domande, mancano i dubbi che Celestia può farsi riguardo ai suoi sentimenti su chi ha davanti. A lei *potrebbe* piacerlo, ma non si capisce perché non ci dice cosa prova. Una cosa invece è raccontare che Celestia non comprende sè stessa su quello che prova davvero.
Millenni di solitudine senza un compagno potrebbero farle pensare che c'è qualcosa di sbagliato in lei, ma il marchio essere la scusa per cui giustificare le proprie miserie, una scusa per nascondere quello che le fa pensare Discord. Discord deve conoscere molto bene le paure di una persona, e deve sapere che Celestia sta solo mentendo a sè stessa. Gli dovrebbe far presente che neppure lei crede a quello che dice. Celestia ha una vita di sacrifici e di rinuncie, ma Discord non ha regole, una libertà che la Principessa ha sempre invidiato. Forse se ne era innamorata perché per lei rappresenta ciò che non può avere; o forse spera che in un qualsiasi modo impossibile possa liberarla dalle catene del suo ruolo.
Questa è una clopfiction, perciò Discord dev'essere un seduttore; ma prima di questo lui è il signore del Caos, e dovrebbe prima mettere in crisi il cuore di Celestia. Poi magari succede dopo, non so; ma la narrazione è un susseguirsi di azioni, e per rendere convincente una azione devi illustrarne le cause. Se Celestia aveva dei dubbi sui suoi sentimenti, andavano espressi meglio prima.

I did like where it was going at first but when it came to the part when Celestia was marked with a cures that forced her to love a single male that's when I lost interested. Honestly I don't like the idea of a woman being pushed or forced to be with a male. I like them to have there free will to choose. I know my oc has a relationship with her but that's not my reason I don't like Discord hitting on her or anything. Actually I don't mind, I can like the idea of a dragon (I think) causing chaos to express is love for a mare, its almost like a bully liking a girl and he picks on her. Its the lone fact that being force to make love or love a dragon without choosing for yourself what upsets me. Sadly I haven't seen a comment of anyone thinking about Celestia if she wants this or not but only the fact that there getting "down and dirty" or a more straight forward " they gonna have sex." I have notice that after Luna was release she ran off to do something so I'm hoping whatever it is she would hurry before Discord gets the best of Celestia and puts her in a position she might regret later down the road. But if she ends up getting saved and Discord turned into stone, and the next season of the comic he returns good he would try to win her heart the good way.

Also I don't know how or why would you turn yourself over because he was tickling your sister? Not like he was threating her life or anything, and why didn't luna try poofing away?
Velgarn Featured By Owner Sep 6, 2013  Student Traditional Artist
Basically you didn't even read the journal, right? You are describing the fanfic so far, and yes, the fanfic is quite bad.

And no, she is not doing every single part of the fanfic. She will do a variation.

Also, if you laugh too long you can loose your breath. Is not so obvious, but still dangerous, even if discord probably wouldn't kill her, Celestia give up only for end the entire thing.
AireFawn Featured By Owner Sep 5, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
I understand your whole view point about being forced into love, but as to the, "Giving up because he was tickling your sister." thing....
It's just a comic. Do not take it so literal. Also if you really are an MLP enthusiast, then you realize OF COURSE it's going to have silly little quirks that don't essentially make sense. 

Just enjoy the comic, don't take it too literal or you wont be able to do that.
Zodiac--Star Featured By Owner Sep 5, 2013
i know not to take it literal, its just I don't like force love. I want to continue watching and hoping something would come up and turn things around.
Funsizefluffy Featured By Owner Sep 4, 2013
Take all the time you need. I'm sure it'll turn it out great. I'll have something to look forward to my birthday. :hug:

I am looking forward to more of this even if it isn't completely my thing, but I understand where you're coming from in the workload area.  My own MLP comic (featuring TwilightxSombra) and my OC one are fighting for priority lol :)

It's a wonderfully drawn comic and I look forward to seeing the next installment, whenever your schedule permits. ^w^

there is a saying "practice makes perfect" and trying out new styles is a challenge for your art skills to improve
keep it up!!! X3
