    Default Tales of Revelia: JRPG-styled Fantasy Webcomic

    At long last, my much planned webcomic is ready. A friend has been pestering me to get the first comic finished. So here it is, my webcomic about a fantasy world with elements taken from Japanese role-playing video games, mostly in the style of the Tales Of series, my favorite series of JRPGs.



    Now with big fancy boxart/logo. Note: characters do not actually look like that in the comic, I wish They still look like normal OotS people.

    Story Thus Far

    Show
    Aria Hauteclair has come to a remote farming village at the request of her sick father to find his old friend, the former King of Belcast. Aria's second objective is to escort the King's only son, Ben Syndill, back home to visit her father. The village is attacked by the Knights of Altia, an order of religious knights serving as the militant branch of the Order of Ico. The Knights are seeking heretical members to the church of Ico. Aria defeats their commanding officer, Gale Stratos, who orders his knights to retreat. Aria leaves the village for the nearby forest, where she meets up with Ben. The two then begin their journey together.

    Having successfully passed through Saria Forest and acquired a mysterious bracelet, the party arrives in the next town, Cousentine.

    Very nice for a first comic, although I personally think some of the faces are a bit high on their respective heads.

    I will very likely follow this and help the spread of insanity that any good comic willl have in it's thread.

    Sankyu first commenter Keveak. About the faces, I based my original designs from Mr. Burlew's characters, so... it's my style?

    But I will probably make art changes over time, and I have considered and people have suggested lower faces to me before.

    Now to wait for more interest before posting the next one.

    Obviously they have very manly chins.

    I do like the hair and armor details. The city in the last couple of panels made me smile for the sheer JRPG-ness of it.

    The premise is merely backstory.The actual story will have something entirely new. Or something like that.

    I think I might have chosen my words poorly. Maybe setting would be more apropriate?

    Well, we'll see how this unfurls - I haven't seen your writing before but that you stand behind the art is certainly promising.

    Oh and I'd like to remind you of the latter part of the forum rules regarding signature images, otherwise a neat banner.

    What does that mean, "that you stand behind the art"?

    And spoilered sig; I was thinking that it looked a little too big.

    *checks sig rules*

    Oh, yeah, good point.

    Actually, I don't think spoilering it works. The max width of sig images, in or out of spoilers, is 470 pixels. Spoilering the image only lets it be taller.

    This is pretty good. The art is clean and detailed, I like it. I'll continue to read.

    Eh, probably just trying to being fancy and saying I like your art - thus you making the art for the comic is a promising sign.

    And you can quite easily decrease the size of the signature banner, for example by putting the speech-bubble below the title, between the symbol and "the man".
    Play around a bit with the composition and you'll end up with something as good but show-able outside of spoilers.

    I like the setting and the art. Already subscribed to the thread.

    I'll be waiting for more JRPG goodnes!

    I'll see what I can do without obscuring the title.

    There we go. Better now? I can count twelve lines, like the rules say. I should also change to one of my avatars so that I can free up another line.

    Hehe, its easier to go by the pixel limitations* - the 12 lines are the maximum for the signature (text, spoilers, quotes and images). Of that you may have images with a total height of 120 pixels and 470 pixels in width. (stacking them onto each other that is)

    In a spoiler you can in addition have images 300 pixels high (but an apparently unlimited amount of pictures as long as the total file size is below 300kb for avatar and images).

    The image is now 170 pixels high and 421 pixels wide. So 50 pixels to go on the height, and you're good for an other 49 pixels on the width.

    *They are in the table in the Avatar & Signature Rules section.

    Yes I've been hit on the fingers regarding these rules so I like to help people avoiding that.

    I really like your art. A lot of comics on here have art that really isn't very good, but yours is great. I can't really vouch for the story as we don't know who the character is and all we really do know is that war starts. Looks good though, I hope this comics lasts.

    That's kinda part of the parody. In fact, most RPGs start you off with just the story and work in to developing the characters; I'm thinking of Dragon Age, Pokemon, and Borderlands. Being a parody of JRPGs, you can expect more of a cinematic feel.

    Afklgjow you finally made it! I have to say, my favorit parts of the first comic are:
    1. Nameless man's hair
    2. The man in the last panel with the spikey red hair

    I like hair. I'm going to read this, so it better not die.

    As promised to myself, next comic is up, after three days of waiting to see how popular it would get. And it has! Thanks for all the support guys. However, this week is spring break for me, so you expect the next next one by the end of the week. After this, they might be coming slower because of AP testing the week I get back, but then I'm free because I'm down two classes. (Lit b; Calc p)

    Anyway, once again, new comic.

    Fun fact, this comic (#2) was originally planned to be the first comic, but I decided later to add a prologue/backstory page before it.
