    Default Mobile Guard Section One: The Comic

    What is this?

    Well, to make it short, Mobile Guard Section One was a game I ran a couple of years back then, and a game that I really love. I've been thinking to make a comic about that game for a long time, but never got the time to do it. And now, because of too much sugar and lack of sleep, I had the thought to really do it. So here it is!

    It's just a random doodling project of mine though, so I dunno how long will it last or what is the release schedule. As you see, this is mostly drawn as spontaneous digital painting, both because I like that style and I always planned to use that style if I ever make a comic about this game, and to reduce drawing time, so I can churn more pages in less time.

    I'll be using player characters from the game, obviously with some changes and cuttings. The cast was rather large at some point, so I have to cut some characters from the comic. I also have to make some changes for the characters to make them flow better with the comic of course. I hope the players won't mind.

    But what is the comic about?

    To make it short and spoiler free. It's a steampunk mecha police/detective story. Think of Patlabor set in Ankh Morpokh. More will be explained later in the comic, hopefully!

    Nice to see you up and drawing again but if I may hasard a bit of criticism, it feels kins of wonky and slightly blurry ?
    For a comic maybe you should consider style with outlines, for the characters at least ?

    Neat! You've caught my interest. I'm getting kind of a Patlabor vibe from the story so far. I'll be keeping an eye on this.

    I'm getting a hint of Discworld's Ankh-Morpork City Watch from this, especially with the descriptor of Ta'lab Al Rhea as "might not actually be human"- puts me in mind of a certain Corporal who has to carry a certificate to prove his humanity.

    Heh.
    (the second one) Still a game I remember fondly though (sadly I must be the only one of all the players to do so). I am interested in see what the original vision for this storry was.

    Wow. Haha, I didn't realize people are actually reading this.

    I'll continue this soon. Actually, the reason why I stop updating for a while is because my friend said that my planned intro is too similar with the actual patlabor, so I was kinda discouraged, but I always plan to continue this.

    I remember seeing this game in the Recruitment sub-forum and thought it was a pretty neat concept. Glad to see you continuing it in some manner.
