Well, for those that missed it, here's my latest project. See below for an explanation, and enjoy!

<!--QuoteBegin-From the Old Topic+--><div class='quotetop'>QUOTE (From the Old Topic)</div><div class='quotemain'><!--QuoteEBegin-->Just to let you all know, I am continuing to work on the Prophecy of Tears. My workspace is a little cluttered at the moment (house cleaning), but as soon as I get it organised, expect another part to be posted <img src="http://forums.saber-...DIR#>/wink.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=";)" border="0" alt="wink.gif" />.

Anyway, recently I've been reading a few Discworld novels by Terry Pratchett, and felt inspired by his satirical views on life. Then, I re-read the Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy, and felt almost compelled to do something random. Thus, armed with a bunch of bricks, a WIP radio transmitter, a camera, desk, lamp and a head full of ideas, I set about producing this comic.

I plan to update this comic whenever I have the time to, but until then, enjoy reading through the 'pilot episode'. There's a few sizing issues (I've been editing in PowerPoint Office, so I'm still working out the bugs), but I should have them sorted out soon enough.<!--QuoteEnd--></div><!--QuoteEEnd-->
Anyway, the comic can be found <a href="http://www.brickshel...y.cgi?f=308472" target="_blank">here</a> in Brickshelf form, but I'll also deeplink it here.

IMPORTANT

Because you all seem to be complaining about not keeping track, I'm adding an index to this post. Enjoy.

Anyway, it's awesome and original. By the way did you make that planet in the beginning?

Gah! Brickshelf - the bane of my existence dry.gif.
The planet at the start was, as I've mentioned before, an LDD image I found on Google wink.gif.

In other news, I'll post the next part (the next completed one, that is) sometime this week, then update with one I haven't shown before.

That remains to be seen. I won't tell anyone if their sign-up is in - rather, they'll have to wait and see.

Check the topic to find out wink.gif. At the moment, I'll be delaying it while I clean off my table (I need to find somewhere to put the Lego), so until then this will be my comic smile.gif.

Thanks. I'll try to get more done soon-ish, but no promises.

Now this is a comic worth reading for updates. Heh. I like how you made random sound like something real, too. Just make more for plot development, for a more in depth review.

That's pretty rad, I must admit.
Kinda reminds me of the scene in Forest Gump in Vietnam when the G.I.'s are partying.
I look foreward to the rest of this comic, I do suggest that you add surroundings to the set next time.

I saw "Terry Pratchet" and "Douglas Adams." What more would one need?

It's pretty amazing. This would be the kind of Army post I'd like to be at. I would fit right in!

Neat comic. Keep it up, man!

I won't. I thought you'd be worried about it going the OTHER way, though, Hawk huh.gif.

There's surroundings, but I'm going for minimal Lego sets - I'll have buildings, etc, but I'm trying to avoid baseplates wink.gif. I feel cramped by them.

Anyway, replies aside, I'll post the next part now. I'll also shrink down the images for my next updates/link it here, to avoid image resization.





























































More to come.
