my half of an art trade with Archetype. we both had a character named Seven so we decided to do a trade. tried some new stuff with this one. it's the first time i've done the inking completely in Photoshop as well as experiment with diplacement maps for texture.\r\nanyway, copyrights are on the pic.

The start of the paintball series... finally!\r\nI think I started this long before Halloween of '04. As much as I enjoyed using color in this comic, I don't think I'll be using color like this again anytime soon. At least not in my comics.\r\nAnyway, I've been working on this so long, I'm not even sure if the joke is funny anymore. Hell, I'm not even sure it's really a joke.

Common Household Chemicals 12

Three years later, I finally get around to finishing comic 12, part 2 in the paintball series. Will I continue with it? I dunno! I'll consider it a miracle if I get to comic 13.\r\n\r\nHope you enjoy this one! It stars a new character to the series and is based on a very good friend of mine, Jason. He's an awesome dude. I hope to do more strips including him.

I'm curious to see how well this comic stands on its own without my comments...\r\nMaybe I'll edit this description later.\r\n\r\nThis image contains mature content because I used the "F" word 7 times.

More fun with household chemicals when Zapf speaks his mind. Freedom of speech doesn't mean you're free to say stupid things freely... or something.\r\n\r\nIf you haven't seen the movie Swingers yet, you should. Go to your nearest independent video rental store and pick up a copy. Don't go to BlockBuster! They suck dog balls.\r\n\r\nCharacters and image are © Daniel Fordien, 2003. All rights reserved.

Common Household Chemicals #4\r\nTitled "Adaptation and Futility"\r\n\r\nOkay, most people that read this tend to misinterpret it. It's my personal spin on the opening dialogue from the movie "Adaptation," starring Nicholas Cage and written by Charlie Kauffman.\r\n\r\nNow i don't really hate my art, so don't take this the wrong way. And i'm not lonely or depressed either. I just thought it would be a funny comic, that's all. Besides, as artists we all have passing thoughts like these.\r\n\r\nAnyway, i hope you enjoy this one. There will more to come!\r\n\r\nSeven is © Daniel Fordien. Sonic and Tails are © Sega.

So i finally finished it... god damn that took forever. Once i get the hang of doing webcomics, i think i'll churn these out much faster. I'll probably upload a colored version of this later, i just wanted to post this as soon as i got the drawings done. I like how my inking style changes half way through the comic...\r\n\r\nAnyway, Seven and Zapf have cats now. Cats are a double-edged sword. Sure they're cute and fun to play with and snuggle and whatnot, but sometimes they break shit and shit on stuff...\r\n\r\nI dunno if i'll keep the cats in the comic series, but i had to create this one. It's dedicated to Jeff, Penelope, and Mr. Tuffy.\r\n\r\nSeven and Zapf are © Daniel Fordien, 2003. All rights reserved, and all that good legal mumbo-jumbo. \r\n\r\n

I've been reading a lot of online comic strips, and have noticed that the majority of them are about a couple of guys that just sit around and play video games. Don't get me wrong, i really dig those other comics. I just don't want my comic to turn into that. And neither does Zapf, apparently.\r\n\r\nEh, i thought the idea was funny at the time...

Hemptaro.\r\n\r\nThis comic is based on a pic my roommate, Dave did a while back. Neither of us are fans of Hamtaro and frankly we're baffled by how so many are drawn in by his cuteness despite how retarded the show is. It's like the writers take real situations and dumb them down for kids to understand them.\r\n\r\nAlso, anytime someone finds Cafepress.com on their own for the first time, i notice they get ideas like this...\r\n\r\nSeven and Zapf are © Daniel Fordien 2003.\r\n\r\nDave's original Hemptaro picture can be found here:\r\nhttp://www.deviantart.com/deviation/1303626/\r\nProps to Dave for letting me use his image. You can check out the rest of his art here:\r\nhttp://voot.deviantart.com\r\n\r\n

I started working on this so long ago that i forgot the description i was going to write for it...\r\n\r\nbut anyway, Kato and I came up with a start of a story for the strip. Originally, I thought the idea was pretty funny, but I'm not so sure now. I guess we'll see where it goes from here.\r\n\r\nIt seems the only way one can get better making comics is to just keep making them and learn from the experience...\r\n\r\nCommon Household Chemicals © Daniel Fordien, 2004.

A gift picture for Helena Söderberg. sort of a belated happy birthday pic. i hope she likes it anyway.\r\nThis is her character DarkAcid, whom will appear in my new web comic Common Household Chemicals (whenever i finish it, God willing.) She'll be the logical and realistic personality of the group.\r\nDarkAcid is © Helena Söderberg.\r\nImage is © Daniel Fordien, 2002. All rights reserved.\r\n

i spent my Easter at the video store. it was such a slow day...\r\nto keep myself amused i doodled this. i colored it in photoshop when i got home.\r\nbored bored bored...\r\n\r\nthis is about as cute as i was willing to get with Seven... i don't think i'll use this for my deviant ID like i had originally planned.\r\n\r\nIf i could go back and redraw this, i wouldn't make his shoulders so wide, his feet so short, and the pose so boring.

i drew this a long while ago for Des on Side7. then i had a poster/flyer art assignment for Computer Paint class. my teacher is a Photoshop retard. he thought this was pretty cool and i got an A with extra credit on it.\r\nanywho, the characters Des and Mutt are © Des Gundry and the art is © me. \r\nthis is a scan of a print since my digital copy got eaten by a virus. procrastination decided to bitch-slap me. moral: back up your old work! about 40 pic of my digital art died and i had no other copies.

this is a sketch for the layout of a comic i'm working on. naturally, the actual dialogue won't be anything like this one. i'm really only uploading this for a friend's personal amusement, and i'll probably take this down when i finish the final version.\r\n\r\nKato, this one's for you!

and here's the other half of the splash page group shot thingy. it'll look a whole lot better when i'm done. only 6 more characters to do plus background and all that other nifty coloring i like to do.\r\n\r\nDark Acid is © Helena\r\nAirGuitar is © Erin\r\nand NeoGeen is © Kim

sz-comic.gif

this is a comic i did for storyboarding class. i'm actually making fun of a different comic that i did for the same assignment and the dialogue is really something that happened between a friend and i. Now this comic is NOT intended to offend anyone. i'm making fun of MYSELF here, not gay-bashing. if you still have a problem, feel free to email me personally. Otherwise, please enjoy my dry sense of humour. :)\r\nSeven and Zapf are both © Daniel Fordien, 2002. All rights reserved.
