Yay! #2 Comic is finished. You know what that means… time for a new project!
That new project can be found here, along with the first page.
Also, I promised a hardcover copy available of Pygmalion in Space, and that is finished and available for print on demand at Lulu, here.
Thank you all for reading and for sticking around for another project. It’s been a huge pleasure.
Hello! Here it is, the last page. I am finished with Pygmalion! I hope you liked it. I enjoyed the making of it, if only to be able to attempt to express things I think about that can’t be expressed quite the same way elsewhere.
As far as what happens now, I have a few things coming down the pipeline. For one, many of you are aware that I am going to be drawing a continuation of the Lint story. For this purpose, I spent an entire week making this video, for People Who Haven’t Read Lint:
Those of you who have read Lint will probably like it more than people who haven’t.
Between now and when I post the THE END page here on Pygmalion, I’m going to be doing two things: 1) making a hardback version of Pygmalion in Space available for purchase through Lulu, and 2) doing my least favorite of all things: building websites for new comics.
Here are the three things I want to do regarding website building:
1) Make purnicellin.com a main hub for all of my webcomics
2) Create a website for the next Lint story, which will be titled “Lintier” XD
3) Create a website for a new, previously unmentioned project called “Farley’s Forde”. It’s a historical fantasy webcomic comedy written by Ron based in Colonial America.
I’m really not looking forward to the website setup. This is my least favorite part of comic creation by far. If, for some weird reason, I had to become a computer programmer, I would probably stab myself to death (with a pencil, as my last revenge to the keyboard).
So, when I update Pygmalion for the last time with THE END PAGE, look for the comic in hardback link as well as links to new comics.
IN OTHER NEWS: Phenoca wrote a rather large fanfic for Lint, centering around Juan the cigar hermit, Regnar, Fang in Rascaline, and a bunch of goblins! (Ronaldo!) I like how he fleshes out the Rascaline culture especially, and also it’s fun to see another person write Fang (and do it rather convincingly!) Read it HERE.
Love you guys! Thanks for reading!
What is this, Christmas? Two updates in a week, special times. I did mention that school and work have finished for the summer and my brain has this way of yelling “FEED ME SEYMORE” except it doesn’t know anyone named Seymore, which leads to all kinds of problems. I try to feed it anyway. All I know is, my creativity has jumped about 10 points up on the creativity graph in the past week due to being unoccupied by math formulas.
This is the next-to-last page of Pygmalion. After I post the last page, I’m going to get it bound and available in hardback (because I want one, and if you happen to want one, you’ll be able to get one, too), then start in on my next project, which is another story within the Lint-verse, that baby universe that I enjoy visiting so very much. I’ll keep you updated on what and how I plan to do it when I post the final page.
Also, a good way to keep up with my updates and projects is to follow me on Twitter at colbyfromage.
Thanks for reading!
Oh sure, the math points to it, but it isn’t like anyone’s going to go into a black hole to find out. And yes, this is titled after the speech by Stephen Hawking!
I have rewritten the ending for Pygmalion probably about five times. I even started the alternate ending (with a whole page halfway done) before scrapping it and going in another direction. Then I started another alternate ending (the page being mostly done) before scrapping it. This final ending is the product of a whole lot of labor, so I hope you enjoy it!
(It’s not over)
There’s an incredible article in Discovery magazine this month about this very subject! Check it out, I say, fast as you can. There’s even a small section regarding the idea that the reality we think we are experiencing theoretically could be only a projection of an actual reality occurring somewhere else. Good stuff.
So what have I been doing!!! Not updating, that’s what! Okay, so I went to NASA and it was an amazing experience and here is a picture of me with my robotics team, and our little rover in the front (I’m in the blue shirt in front). After that I came home, interviewed, and was awarded a full scholarship to study aerospace engineering (yay for things like that!). Then I had finals. I’ve been out of school for a week and my brain is already protesting the lack of things to do, and so here I am. Painting space is F-U-N.
Also I didn’t notice anyone commented on my last page until 1/2 hour ago. I was like, “Oh well, I guess that was the boringest page ever.” But then I saw there were comments! No idea why I’m not getting notified all of a sudden when someone comments. Anyway, thanks for commenting, and most especially for reading!
Hey everybody! I’m sorry these updates are spaced so far apart, and I sincerely appreciate you readers for hanging in there! This comic is nearly over, as you likely can tell. It all depends on how far I stretch out the final scene, and I can’t say how long it will be yet because it’s one of those I have to feel my way through. It should be interesting, though!
As far as my crazy life, I got a perfect score from NASA on my robotic Mars mission project, got accepted to go to Johnson Space Center in Houston next week and will be doing some cool things for three days with awesome NASA people. I have butterflies and am unable to eat. OF COURSE. In the meantime, I’ve been kept busy with math exams for some reason.
I recently was feeling a bit on the crazy side (don’t pretend you never do) and I starting writing a list to get It All out of my head. Do you know what the #1 thing was that I wanted to spend my free time doing? Making comics. That’s right, I’d better lay off the Korean shows and do that which I love (make comics) instead of that which I merely like a lot (Korean dramas). By the way, you have more free time than me, so check out Sungkyunkwan Scandal. It’s AWESOME. What hijinks.
Anyway, have a great week and I’ll update ASAP.
Ahh! Here’s a comic. Hope you like it. I was busy doing that student project for NASA, and now it’s done! Click if you want to check out what I came up with, although I’m afraid Google Docs does a real number on the formatting, especially the tables. Now I wait to see if I’ll get accepted into the program.
Sorry for the long wait, guys! It’s pretty smooth sailing from here.
Hey! Sorry for being late. Some of why is explained in this post. Weirdly, I only have like two pages left in the comic. Maybe three. Thanks for reading!!
Hey y’all check out that awesome Eagle Nebula! If I was a high level debriefing guy, I would definitely put that on my wall, right behind my head, so everyone who came in to talk to me would be awed by the Eagle Nebula but think it was really me.
Thanks for understanding about the down time — I’m never going to Wichita again, that place is LIFE DESTROYING*.
Thanks for reading!!
*This is an exaggeration. Wichita is actually extremely benign.
Hi! I watched this while coloring this comic, if you haven’t seen it, maybe you’d enjoy it!
I also found these varied NASA studies on global climate change very interesting, as I’m always a fan of all things NASA, and it’s kinda timely since here in Dallas we’re under more than half a foot of snow and ice and THAT’S JUST NOT NORMAL. (Although the snow is very pretty)
Bottom line, we can eat less meat and start using all that free sun and wind energy that’s around us all the time. We’ll do it, just like we overcame the appalling conditions of the early industrial era, and just like we stopped and reversed the total deforestation of the US in the 1800’s, and all of the numerous other previously unthinkable things we’ve been able to do as a humans. Now we’re a global society, and that’s a challenge, but it isn’t one that can’t be overcome, and I personally believe we’ll make it with flying colors.
Thanks for reading,
