take a deep breath by Varethane take a deep breath by Varethane
....and turn into a TREE AAAHHHHHHH

(so yeah, it's late, and I put off posting this for days after finishing it for reasons that will make sense if you follow Chirault and won't if you don't. But technically I posted a picture that blows this spoiler right out into the open over a year ago, so does it even count as one anymore?)

....tl;dr: THANE IS CRAZY. Also, pic is done in photoshop CS2.

SORRY IN ADVANCE IF THIS SPOILS ANYONE WHO DOESN'T WANT TO BE SPOILED, I just... really wanted to put this up somewhere 8'D

There should be a button on the right-hand side of the image, in the sidebar, saying 'add to favourites' :)

Thanks, I'll try that. And... do you need a premium membership to post comics, or what?

I don't think you do! Though depending on what kind of comic you mean, Deviantart may not be the ideal place for it. If you just want to post a single page that stands by itself it's fine, but if you want to start up a webcomic that has multiple pages to tell a story, I'd suggest going to someplace like Smackjeeves instead. The navigation there is much better for readers.

I bought this print at anime boston because I really liked it, but now I finally discovered it's from a comic you made. I think I'll read it now :]

I suspected this when I saw the page about him trying to control himself. Great art...Beautiful...

I'm dying to know just how he got where he is now. But I can be patient...:D

I suggest using natural light, textured paper, and a piece of plexiglass. I paint one side of the plexiglass white and use the other side to hold and mix my colors.
