And here are the colors.  So far so good, but I’m not sure if it comes across that Hulda is looking at Krampus. Maybe if the back antlers were moved somewhat so that it looks like her head is turning towards him and not away. Anybody got any thoughts or suggestions?

Inks for a King Krampus and Queen Hulda picture, based on a similar picture with Disney’s Mufasa and Sarabi. Really like how both of them came out in this.

Master Marlowe, Chamberlain of the Holy Alpine Emperor, King Justus Krampus of Aldheim, does not approve.

The Diamond Dog Marlowe, Krampus’s chamberlain. Gonna have to work on his design if he’s going to appear in the reboot as well. Maybe change his name to Growlowe as well. I’d originally named him Marlowe due to an in-joke; Marlowe was a contemporary of Shakespeare. Shakespeare also happened to be the name of the secretary/personal assistant of Edwin Blackguard from “Adventures in Odyssey”, a radio show I grew up with as a kid. Whenever Edwin needed his assistant, he’d bellow out his name, “SHAKE-SPEARE!” with his assistant running to him with the shout, “Coming sir!”
Of course, the joke kind of falls flat on its face if you don’t know about that, so maybe Growlowe (or some suitable dog-pun) would be better.
(And yes, this is a repeat reblog; I momentarily deleted the original due to a brainfart judgment.)

Anonymous asked:

is this blog still functioning or is it to be shut down soon?

It’s still going on. As I mentioned before, it will be going through a reboot in a month, focusing more on an actual comic style rather than the standard style most ask blogs here have.

That said, I will still be doing “standard style” answers, though these won’t be directly affecting the main story. No Homestuck or Moonstuck “player/reader input determines where the story goes” sort of thing. They will however help answer questions that may come up in the main story itself though, while also providing background information the comic can’t immediately cover.

Since I’m going to reboot the comic anyway, have an update that I did all the way back in 2012. I never posted this because I wanted to use it as part of the Everfree sequence in a flashback.

Originally, Krampus came to the Everfree to investigate the ruins of the Castle of the Two Princesses to investigate where Nightmother Moon came from, but since the reasons have changed as part of the reboot, I figured I might as well go ahead and post this up.

Afternoon reblog. Hello everybody.

Decided to post this by itself because I didn’t like how the reblog distorted it.
From/Based off of this? http://thelordofaldheim.tumblr.com/post/28047810765/lets-get-you-back-home-this-is-no-place-for-a

Huh. Apparently, while I had saved this, I’d never actually gone and favorited this till just now. Now I feel like a complete ass. Sorry Dui. Thank you though for this. It meant so much to me when you first posted this.
Dui is a wonderful, amazing artist, and when I first saw her(?) art, I absolutely fell in love with it. Especially her version of Pinkie Pie. Give her all the love you can give.

Situation Update

After thinking about it for a while, and thanks to the advice I’ve received from those I’ve asked about this, I’ve made my decision regarding this blog: I am going to put the current incarnation of the “Krampus In the Everfree”, featuring Tired Pinkie Pie on hold. I will be revisiting it with an extended set of comic pages in the future, written out like an actual comic. I will be rebooting the whole comic starting April 21st, the third year anniversary of when I started all this.

While the reboot is going on, I will be keeping everything posted so far up for the sake of posterity. I’ll also be adding new tags to the old posts that don’t fit with where I plan to take this comic so people can easily find them again. I’ll also be adding a tag for those old posts that I do want to keep as part of the reboot canon as well.

Despite the main focus being comic pages, I will also do individual asks with illustrated replies, something akin to an illustrated “Letters to the Editor” at the end of most comic issues nowadays. While these won’t have a direct effect on the plot of the current issue, they will help answer any questions that the comic issue doesn’t address.

I’m really excited about all this, as this means that I can actively work towards bettering myself as a comic writer and illustrator. While the month-long count-down is going on though, please feel free to send any asks you have about Krampus and his friends you might have, and I’ll get started with answering them as best as I can.

tl;dr version: I’m rebooting the tumblr but keeping everything for archiving’s sake. Reboot will feature comic issues akin to the MLP series and MLP Mini-Issues. Asks will be answered separately from the comics. Asks are now open for input!

Current Status Update

Hey everybody. I wanted to let you guys know what exactly has been going on with this tumblr comic, and try to explain why I’ve been having such long periods of inactivity.

When I originally started this comic, I had done so with the hope of regularly updating it with answers and quick comics, in part to try and hone my art skills and in part to carve my own niche in the MLP fan community. Unfortunately, I did so right during the last two years of my university career pursuing two simultaneous Bachelor degrees. This, coupled with other issues, particularly struggling with depression and OCD during that time, meant that I often had a hard time trying to get the will and energy to really try and apply myself towards this comic.

Another part of the problem is that I’ve been kind of stuck with this whole “Krampus in Everfree” arc that I started. It originally started with a picture from Tired Pie’s tumblr of Pinkie Pie sleep walking through the Everfree Forest. I was struck by it enough to draw a picture of Krampus finding her and taking her back home. But that led me to wondering, just why was Krampus in the Everfree in the first place? As you guys can see from the past few updates that haven’t been stand-alone or event-based, I’ve tried to on-again off-again pursue that thread, but writer’s block (and my own insecurity over whether I could draw what I was trying to envision) kept winding up as road-blocks for me (along with the issues I already mentioned).

The thing is, I still want to pursue this blog and this character and his own role in the MLP setting, but I’m not sure that I want to do it in the usual ask-blog format. Over the last few months, I’ve honestly been considering doing this blog more like Egophiliac’s Slice of Pony Life, where it’s more of an actual comic rather than tumblr asks and picture responses. At the same time, I’ve been seriously considering just starting completely from scratch, either deleting everything on here and starting over, or going back and redrawing everything and replacing the old stuff with the new takes.

The other option would be to keep everything that I have so far, as a means of comparison, and just go forward with the reboot as is. For example, this would mean rewriting and redrawing the “Krampus and Tired Pie” sequence as an actual comic, and have that be the official version, rather than what I have right now. I’m kind of leaning towards that option, and just relabeling everything that’s come before (except the stand-alone stuff) with the tag “version 1”.

However, I don’t want you guys feeling like I’m trying to change things on you without any warning. So I’m asking you all, please give me your thoughts on what you’d like to see me do. It would really help me with figuring out how to go on from here, especially since the anniversary of this blog is April 21st. I want to at least TRY to have something set up for that, but whether it be a complete reboot or what, I’m not sure.

In the meantime, what I can do is start posting more sketches and concept work that I’ve been doing for this comic, so that you guys can actually see the progress I’ve been doing, with both character designs and concept work for the panels.

Thank you all for reading this, and thank you for any suggestions you might have. I will be sure to read all of them.

Happy Chinese New Year Everybody! As belated as it is, I wanted to make sure that I celebrated the Year of the Horse, and what better way than with Krampus, cosplaying as the Emperor of China from Disney’s Mulan? Work IS slowly but steadily moving along to the next update; I’ve just been juggling it with redoing past posts and real life situations. Hope everybody has been having a great Year of the Horse so far, and I’ll see you all next update.

As part of my plans for the New Year, I’m going to start regularly updating this blog, if not with actual updates then at least with sketches, concept work and etc, so that all of you following me know that I am alive and still kicking.

To begin, here are a few sketches from some of the things I’ve been bandying about and working on for this blog. If you guys have any questions, you can either message me here or on my mod blog, and I’ll do my best to get back to you as soon as I can.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays Everybody! I will be working on finishing this sketch of Krampus the rest of the night, but till then, Merry Christmas to you all!
EDIT: Finally finished it. I’ll be posting the original sketch with a bunch of others in a sketch post soon for posterity’s sake. And while yes, it IS almost a week since Christmas Day, let us all remember that officially, the Christmas season lasts till January 6th, Three Kings Day. So until then, once again, Happy Holidays and have a Happy New Year!
