The Bright Side: Prologue p1 by dragongirlhellfire The Bright Side: Prologue p1 by dragongirlhellfire
Guess what. I've decided to start writing some sort of comic. I was going to write this like a novel but for some reason decided to draw it instead. Want of variety, I guess.
Anyway so now I'm going to try to draw pages regularly and upload them to dA. Please don't expect too much of me. This is likely to fizzle out but we'll see. That's why I'm doing lousy drawings. I can't be bothered doing really complex stuff or I'd give up before I even start.
Also, title = lousy but meh I can't think of anything else. I might change it later.


Sorry about how negative I sounded above. The first volume of this (prologue + 6 chapters) became my art final, so i had excellent reason to keep doing it, and it's so fun... My homework input for all my other subjects declined dramatically from little to none, as can be imagined.

So it hasn't fizzled out and it has a proper title! Is no longer Deathgirl, which to me always sounded like some kind of lousy superhero (what a stupid power; well, useful, depending, but depressing). Is now The Bright Side. Make of that what you will.

I think I read this at the Top Arts display awhile ago. Thanks for posting it online, I was wondering if I'd ever see it again, because I enjoyed reading it the first time. Great concept!

Oh, really? :D I always wonder whether many people who saw it there would ever find it online.
Thanks! :heart:

Not bad! Stylish art, but what is missing!

Some time ago, I said I was going to come back to Page One and read them all in sequence. I enjoyed every one of them since I've seen them, and really want to know how it started & how they got where they are now.

Title is NOT lousy; it's fitting.

Oh good, I'm glad you think so :D
I don't even remember where the idea for this came from, but it may have been from one of the various webcomics I was reading at the time (and still am)... like Gunnerkrigg Court [link] , that's been a bit of an influence. And TVtropes may have had something to do with it. I really don't know, though. I wish I could remember.
I know it wasn't The Book Thief, because I read that after I'd already started this.
But anyway, I just decided to draw a story instead of write one for a change, and I just got more and more into it and now here we are.

And thank you, :) but I think I was talking about the old title with that. I'm fairly pleased with the current title.

"The Bright Side" is the better title for it. You should consider sending it to a publisher when it's done. It's intense and fantastic.

Thank you, thank you for the encouragement!
That is so absolutely my dream... :la:
I dunno, maybe if I can garner popularity on TEH INTERWEBS I might have more hope... fingers crossed :D

Chase that dream :)

You've made the good decision to don't do it as a novel!

I could have given you my hat if I had one...
