Chronicles of Alleron is a webcomic made out of Lego. They're set up, photographed, then paint-ninja'd by Jesse Pohlman. Fifty years ago, the world flooded because of an imbalance in Mana. Now, the forces of life threaten to tip once more!
So, uhm...This one is wider than usual. I used a much wider panel format to try to create a larger scene, all to better explain the rise - and fall - of mana! I have to say, I really like how the images turned out. I hope they help to really bring the story home. To be honest, this isn't even that bad of a panel to start someone off on! I liked it so much, I'm releasing it before Wednesday! Will I get another done, by then? Probably not. Maybe a short/silly.
Also, for some reason, my newest batch of pictures are in a different resolution than I'm used to. That's something I need to correct, and will, but it shouldn't be noticeable in terms of image quality, in the comic itself. Enjoy!
I'm not entirely thrilled with the bug-eyed Goldhook at the end, there, but at the same time there's a certain charm about how he reacts to hearing something absolutely incredulous. Especially after brokering a rather crooked deal with a prince-prisoner. Double-especially after hearing Habbo ramble on, which I guess isn't too unusual.
Episode 30 is up! I'm experimenting with a new font - I hope you like it!
Goldhook remains a conceited human being - err, Lego! And he's bald! Hence the title! Guys, enjoy the read; Episode 31 is coming up sooner or later, but since it probably won't be done before Memorial Day, have a happy one! And thank you to those who serve, or have served, and have honored our country in doing so! (P.S. If you're from a foreign country, uhm, hi!)
It's been forever. I had a computer failure and a computer rebuild to go through; it wasn't so bad, but it cost me my ability to take photos outside. I wanted to get some new episodes up and running, but the weather sucked, so I resorted to just, y'know, taking indoor images. Hopefully they don't look too bad!
So, we've come to the end of another batch of photos. I'm debating whether or not to do a few episodes about Lostech and how it effects the world, mainly because they'd be relatively easy to set up and shoot. But I'm also just trying to figure out how to best arrange the next real scene - the return of Habbo and Goldhook! Chances are, I could do both.
Anyway, if you remember, we last saw our Pirate heroes fighting the Goblin sorceress, Bandihutu. That did not end well for them, clearly, but just what is their fate? Stay tuned, and as always - enjoy!
I want to apologize for it taking so long to post. Between a vacation, a return, and a pair of quick-succession illnesses I've been pretty beaten up. Okay; that, and I've been promoting Protostar: Memoirs of the Messenger rather heavily! There's nothing I can really do about that, I'm afraid. Sales have been unusually spectacular, and I have to keep pushing that forward.
That, and the weather has been way too damned unwieldy for me to actually go outside, set up, and shoot the next set of scenes. After all, while we're just now meeting Victoria and Samuel, and we're getting to know Biran, we do need to find out whatever happened to Habbo and Goldhook - and whether or not Prince Darius is really planning to attack the Goblins who defeated our pirate "heroes!"
