The Bright Side: Chapter 32 p398 by dragongirlhellfire
The Bright Side: Chapter 32 p398
Ok so re: previous page, I really shouldn't just go "i made a mistake" because THEN EVERYBODY GOES HUNTING FOR IT and finds all my OTHER mistakes. idk what i was expecting :XD:

(anyway it was the leaves, i accidentally drew fully-leaved willow trees in december, and had to hastily make it look like they were dropping them) (the scarf was also a mistake but i don't care about it as much)

This page, however, is PERFECT. yes that's right, nothing ever goes wrong when I draw haha (i am actually quite pleased with this page)

(8 hours later: whoa whoops left this open in a tab without clicking submit, SOZ HAHA)

Brooches for Sale by dragongirlhellfire
Brooches for Sale
Hey guys, so - this is a thing I'm attempting...

I'm selling these brooches that I've made. Pencil brooches! $4 each, or 3 for $10 (AU) and you can request what you want it to say (name, pronouns, your fav pithy meme - anything, as long as it will fit. there's about 3cm of writeable space)

If you email me at and tell me what your mailing address is, what colour you want, and what you want it to say, I will get back to you with the cost including shipping, and payment options. 
(they're small enough to just mail in an envelope so shipping it shouldn't be TOO much - not that I've actually investigated international shipping rates yet)

Or just - look at these things I made!

Artist | Traditional Art
I write a comic called The Bright Side. It is about a girl and her friend Death.
Sometimes I do other stuff too.


And my website:
So a thing I've seen a bunch of webcomics start doing is patreon campaigns, which - well so far just looks like another thing that I might sign up to in the hopes that I might actually make some money, and then it'll just sit there not making me any money.

Cos, you know, it actually depends on people committing and being like 'YES! i will give you a small quantity of money every time you put up a page or whatever!'

and so far i have a) not that big a readership and b) mostly poor young people like myself as my readers, who are not super keen to throw money at things. as far as i can tell. honestly if i had just one reader who was incredibly loaded and/or incredibly charitable it would be rad. but i... don't think i do. so idk if i should attempt to set a patreon up or not.

OR another thing i might do is make some minicomics which connect to stuff (like, episodes from Dee's past that he doesn't talk about, or something) which you only get to read if you buy them.

idk. that's the kind of thing that pisses me off as a reader, but only because, as previously mentioned, i am a young person with not a heck of a lot of money. also i read a lot of webcomics and ALAS i can't support them ALL without destituting myself. (i assume everybody is in the same boat)

do any of you know about patreon, or have any other advice, or just... have thoughts??

go click it, it's the daisy which is also my icon here on dA
or you could buy ebooks off my gumroad, or whatever i happen to have on society6 (seriously need to update that stuff; i have IDEAS, i just haven't done them yet)

DESPERATELY TRYING TO BE A SELLOUT HERE (not actually, but i keep having to think about MY FUTURE and JOBS and so much of it revolves around MONEY... like those people who tell you 'do what you love and you will MAGICALLY be able to live just fine?' LIES) (and i'm a rich white kid, i'm not actually in trouble at this moment in time) (unless my main issue is i'm not good enough and if i actually did a better job at stuff people would be throwing millions at my door, but i see a lot of shitty stuff that people seem to get money from and i'd like to think i'm at least a LITTLE bit better than some of those things)

Just wondering if it's better for you to have people visit your DA page or your Bright Side website? Or if it makes no difference?

Love the comic. Discovered it a few days ago and spent all those day reading it. I like seeing stuff set in Australia. Doesn't happen a whole lot.

Oh hey! Thanks for asking :D The only differences that I care about are that I get ad revenue from people visiting my site, so yay money, but if you wanted to leave comments you can only do that here on dA.

Thank you very much! Yeah, I haven't run into many other comics set in Australia.

I really like your webcomic! I have a little suggestion: since you changed the font anyway, maybe you could let Death speak in small capital, just like in the Terry Pratchett books? That might be cool.
dragongirlhellfire Featured By Owner Oct 3, 2014   Traditional Artist
Yeah, probs not; my Death is not the same as Terry Pratchett's Death, and doesn't talk like him. I'd prefer to differentiate my Death from all the others around, since inevitably they get compared. Also it's not really how I like to use capitals for conveying tone.
But yay, another Pratchett fan! :dance:
