This one is a bit difficult to explain. Okay once upon a time... Vadien, Ven and Athera (who are the main characters of FMU) were actually the main characters of a much more serious story I concieved and wrote which I had named, "the Red Knight".
This story was to be an online comic. One that I put a great deal of effort into making, thus dragging out the creative process.
When I got sick of working on this project. Which needless to say, happened a lot. I would amuse myself by putting these characters into mini comic strips which of course were alot easier to sketch plus... they were funny.
Eventually I started posting these strips on to my web-gallery. Where, amazingly the strips developed a fanbase. Go figure...
In one respect, it flattered me to know that there were people out there who understood my sense of humor. The downside however meant that nobody was the least bit interested when I premiered my real comic online featuring the same characters.
So I dumped the Red Knight and set about making FMU an online comic. Which I did.
This image is the Red Knight's version of Vadien. A much colder, sinister character with a huge chip on her shoulder.
