Call for Cameos (for DeSTRESS)

blankd:

So obviously dS is still on hold, but I figure I’d let everyone know  dS is back in business and I’m holding a call for/”contest” to cameo in dS since there are going to be too many some crowd scenes in the chapter and I might as well put in some cameos.

Edit: I have simplified this a bit and given a deadline!

Today is the LAST “official” day to submit your reference sheets for cameos! (You can still submit on March 16th since I’m not that much of a hardass, but any entries that arrive on the 17th will sadly not be allowed.)

The comic has been in semi-hiatus, it IS still ongoing. In lieu of this, you are welcome to submit your entry (even if incorrectly) simply to secure a spot. If there are any wrinkles/issues I’ll communicate with you to fix them.

If I have not contacted you saying I have received your entry, this means it did not get to me and you need to resubmit/resend your entry!

Hi! how are you? will you update again soon? i hope you're ok! C:

Thanks for the concern dear anon! An update is past due anyway-

I don’t like talking about personal stuff, but my current life is a little hectic (details in read more if you’re curious), but not bad.

TL;DR: Thank you for putting up with my awful posting schedule and for my delayed responses, I’m doing what I can to fix things. I want to post some Vday stuff too but I have no idea if it’s feasible at this time.

Hi! Is there a way to view previous/older incentives? I've missed some of them :(
Anonymous

Yes! You can find them in the [bonus art] section.  I try to keep it updated every 2nd or 3rd update, so when in doubt, check the “last updated” date at the top!

On occasion I upload a “splash art” for a holiday incentive, typically these are uploaded to the [gallery] (it’s after the lovely fanart, so you’ll have to scroll down). I usually update this section after something’s time as an incentive is up.

Also it’s entirely possible I may have missed some of the unprompted incentives during a more hectic time, so don’t be shy about asking if something is missing if you think it is missing!

Thanks for asking and hope you enjoy them!

Since the askbox was empty there are freakish muppets of the main trio and a spare sketchy Mags.  Vote to see it! Also I’d like to thank everyone who reblogs/shares this comic, you guys are so awesome ;o;
The askbox is open for your wonderful questions!
*I can’t find that video or vine(?) this joke references. Edit: It cropped up on my dash: Here you go. At least it isn’t a bad dragon dildo or something?

Comparison and contrast to some stuff that’s old enough to have been TRADITIONAL!

For ~yet another project~ that is on super back burner. [Project is called L2Bullet if you are curious, it is a foray into ROMANCE, how terrifying.]

Kit will likely get a different faceshape at some point, but eh, backburner.  Also, christ I think I may have had some kind of design fetish for people MISSING their left eye.

Kit and Char ended up becoming ladies because, sheesh, what a sausagefest.  It’s also funny to see how Kit evolved into a sorta-bara and is now shorter than Cupid.

Not pictured: all the guns I will have to end up drawing

Edit: Tumblr stop freaking out about muh photoset.

Drawing almost makes me feel better. ragespired by how it is nearly impossible to talk about female character design and GET ANYWHERE.

All 4 are female, albeit with a bit more generic fantasy designs: knight (and parasite sword), mage, MIMIC PRINCESS and monster tamer.

Mimic Princess’ “boobs” are literally sacs of fat. I like her best because in muh handcannons she eats “heroes” too unobservant to notice the many inaccuracies in the fake body. CAN YOU SPOT THE REAL GIRL?

So i realize that the story isn't meant to be super romantic or whatev's, but does Sid ever get a romantic interest or will he just remain alone and all adorable?

I’ll let the story speak for itself for everyone and their romances or lack thereof, but I like to think that Sid’s got a big heart and he definitely has love to spare, even if it’s nonsexual. 8)

Raz definitely does think Sid is pretty bonable though.

I have to say, I love your Astervotum language. I was wondering, is there a specific way to tell how you would spell and pronounce words in Astervotum that you did not include in your descriptions?

Thanks (and sorry for the delay in answering)! Admittedly, Astervotum is kind of lazy since I’m not exactly a linguist, the alphabet is a fairly 1:1 conversion from the English alphabet, the only “special” symbol is the ending 0.

In terms of pronouncing things, it once again falls back on what looks like the “English” pronunciation (despite how some of the words I pull have DRASTICALLY different pronunciations).

Some examples:

Nihilfaer = Nee-hill-fare, Lifpirum = Lif-peer-um, Cicen = see-sen

Raz is a wee bit angry.
Call for Cameos is still running.
Today’s ask is a nonask that explains why a certain visual thing was changed.  It has only the most sophisticated humor (a dick joke).  Vote to see it! Also the Astervotum section has been updated with the 2.0 alphabet.  You can also ~download the shitty font~ if you want!

*anon trivia minute* Not really a question even though there'll be a question mark at the end, but... Did you know Kill La Kill and Shingeki's musics are made by the same guy? Hiroyuki Sawano /o/

Yes I did! I do overall like their ability to make fairly epic sounding music. (Yup Engrish and Gerhmahn)

I remember first hearing about this composer from the Guilty Crown OST.

Thought today was Saturday! This update is a bit wordier and has some ~valuable info~.  Also if you are HYPER OBSERVANT you might notice a visual “retcon”, can you spot what it is?
Also I have finally updated the Call for Cameos post to have a deadline and (hopefully) simpler/clearer instructions.
Today’s ask is about Raz’s ~hair~.  Vote to see it! (To anyone who is asking about Astervotum, please hold on for a bit as I’m nearly done with revising the physical alphabet.)
The askbox is also open for your wonderful questions!

And dS is updating again! Huzzah.  Two pages to nudge it along, it’s all very riveting. (I’m also doing some cleanup of the site’s extra components, so if there are any wonky links, sorry!)
Today’s ask is about what other characters would be in the My Neighbor Sidtoro-verse.  Vote to see it!

Already fucked up resolution not to post stupid shit. Better luck next year.

Already fucked up resolution not to post stupid shit. Better luck next year.

Something I've always wanted to say to you? dS is one of my all time favorite comics and I've reread it 2 or 3 times already... and each time I find something new that makes me go "OH SHIT." And, as a comic artist, you're who I aspire to be.

Dohohoho, thank you very much Anon, I’m glad you enjoy dS so much and hope it continues to supply that to you in the pages to come!

(And it’d probably be good to also aspire to have a better buffer than me XD!)

i saw the post about sending anything i'd like to have said and hello was what i wish i had said. and oh man, i'm so behind on deSTRESS. g2g catch up >.>

Oh fucklesticks, sorry about not publishing that publicly! I wasn’t thinking properly, I sometimes get really random things in my box! OTL

(And it’s ok, I need to make/post more pages!)
