It's been about a year since I started making this comic. I want to thank you all for reading! It is your support and interest that keeps me motivated. I hope there will be many more years of Elf to come.

So... here's a special COLOR page! I'm gonna go back to B&W next week. Coloring takes me too long and I'm not very good at it. ;)

I know what you mean with the coloring...soooo time consuming. Gratz on a year! You have done some great work, looking forward to more!

Think he knows now that Clarence isn't a 'furry goblin'? Also, what's next for Lefty and Axe Hand; Odd Couple-sitcom? CSI:Calubrig?

Ha ha! Maybe Lefty and Axe Hand can team up with Katagnar's Lower Jaw to solve mysteries (always involving missing body parts).

Thanks, folks! It's been a fun year and I've enjoyed reading some very cool comics by other creators here as well. Huzzah!

It's more like, thank you for all the time and effort you put into your work. I really get a kick out of this comic and loving coming back to see what's new.

Thanks guys! Coloring this one page seemed like a good opportunity to figure out the color schemes of the characters' costumes. Now we know that Pieter wears some fancy red pantaloons. ;)

I now feel a stronger connection because I too wear fancy, red pantaloons.

Blast and damnation..I'm seeing brightish orange pants here. And now I'm worried about how my own work looks on other peoples screens. These computers, I'm telling you...

Actually they look more orange on my end as well. They should look more red. Hang on a sec...

Okay, I tweaked it a bit. Now it should look more reddish. I was thinking about this painting by Bruegel:

my favorite part is the blood splatter, or spatter, or what ever it's called.
Songgu Kwon 6th Jul 2013, 5:32 AM edit delete reply
Songgu Kwon
Both words work. It's the ol' dip a toothbrush in ink & flick with finger trick. Once the inked page has been scanned and opened In Photoshop, you can set your brush tool on "lighten" and paint the black splatter red or whatever color.

I could live without color myself, but if you think it could expand your audience, maybe you should consider outsourcing your colorization needs to the dark, Satanic cartoon mills of South Korea. You wouldn't need a local interloper to speak on your behalf.

The first year has frequently been a rewarding reading experience. My chief complaint has been the dearth of magic, especially given I have almost always played spell-casting characters myself, from high school on. Still, the throw away reference to Summon Goblin Hero was funny, and the depiction of Maurice was intriguing. Even if the spell-casting were (largely) limited to villains, a la Conan, magic is magic, and makes a fantasy world go round.

I think the comic should stay B&W but the occasional use of color should be fun.

The 2nd year will feature more magic. Maybe even TOO MUCH magic. You will be complaining that there's way too much magic. ;)

Congrats on a year! The color looks great, but I TOTALLY feel you on the not-every-comic front. Color only on special occasions works JUST fine for me.

Also, good use of the word "pantaloons."

Songgu Kwon
My pantaloons & I agree with you.

Too much magic is better than too little. The ideal campaign for me would be on Melniboné, or Pan Tang, in the Elric universe. At the opposite extreme, you have the Lawful Good, magic-free universe of R. Baron, which is like fantasy role playing in Utah.

In DDO, characters go through a series of gestures, which vaguely resemble katas, while casting spells. I recommend ripping off some form of qigong, which is incorporated into several martial arts, but is not itself combat-oriented.

The color is very good!

My pantaloons did the coloring and they thank you.

Your pantaloons are an excellent colorist.
