Kaz, what are you doing? Kaz? Kaz! No! Please, stop! KAZ! NO!
yes. she said herself that it was extremely awkward for Kat to be sleeping in the same bed as her while wearing just literally painted-on underwear. She spent the whole night resisting the urge to flip around and fwip-fwip her fuzzy pearl

Selling drugs was the bandits usual business. Slave trading takes place only when they get new "goods" and a buyer.
Notice how the boss said something like "Lets make this place look like a respectable crackhouse" after the sale took place, meaning removing any hint of slave trading.
I don't see how Kaz can quit his job if it gets to 50k. I mean, yeah, that's a shit load of money for me. More than most people make in a year. But quitting your job requires some long-term income.
I'd just have to do it again, better, in a year or so.
It's not $50,000, though, it's more like $20,000. A lot of that 50k goes to production, shipping, fees, and taxes. Art contests used to be a big part of my income, so I'm used to filing taxes for stuff like this.
Next time I do it, there will probably be a few people who skip on it because they only wanted to buy one thing ever, but others who are more open to buying after they see me successfully do this once in the past. I'm hoping they'll even out and this can be made into something fairly sustainable, as long as I keep creative with the merch and getting new readers.
I could use a better site than IGG though. Maybe someone will make one when they see a webcomic author use preorders and mass production to pull a 50% profit from merch. I think I mentioned it in an earlier thread here, but comics using print-on-demand serivices would have to sell about $100-150k to make what I am.
I... will never understand you
If you love your comic so much, go draw it
Oh, I didn't mean in a "I wish my name was like yours" way, I just meant I didn't understand the process.
I wondered if there was a semi-deeper meaning than just random consonents spaced with vowels. Like Eragon's shitty name being the result of misspelling Dragon.
Because there is no point in that process that involves printing hundreds of miniature ethnic diversity murals for people to hang on their walls, along with a few huge ones.
>How the fuck did you come up with your name, Kaz?
I took the first three letters of what I was called IRL, my favorite vowel, and the first tree letters of what people called me online with the intent of making a new name where people would be recognizably referring to me no matter which nickname they used.
When Cider uses the same tactics it gives him Joe Acid. I have another friend who gets his exact current online nickname, by pure coincidence.
>Because there is no point in that process that involves printing hundreds of miniature ethnic diversity murals for people to hang on their walls, along with a few huge ones.
Did you accidentally a grammar in there, or am I just being foreign again?
There is a fanart contest and a baking contest. How does kazerad manage so much at once?
It's on the fanart booru.
-Anon from last night-
I decided to bake a tribute to Kazerad for his contest, but that wasn't enough. No, it is not enough to attempt to fail at baking in honor of Kaz, no I must become him. I must truly make bad decisions. I must become his doppelganger! I need to COOK like Kazerad to truly honor the man. How can I go about this anons? Drink heavily to mimic Kaz's hand-eye coordination with sharp objects? I need ideas damn it!
why is kaz spurring on the definitely-not-happening ship
you are cruel, kaz
Before you do something, ask "how would a redneck without the proper tools do it?" and then do it that way
Gotta blend something? Spoons duct-taped to a power drill. No rolling pin? Baseball bat.
Make sure to log and post pictures.
Well, the call was for argonian-themed cookies, not argonian-shaped ones. My first instinct would be to make them poisonous, to mimic what a traditional Black Marsh recipe would likely entail.
Once you really start looking into it, you might be surprised how many toxic substances you can find in your neighborhood. Even if it's too late in the year to go gather toxic plants and mushrooms, most supermarkets will stock at least a few caustic cleaning chemicals, and hardware stores will have loads more.
There will also be a LOT of opportunities for things to go disastrously wrong.
It's the point if the updates are sparodic but of the same length, which works for strip based webcomics. With Kaz, it would feel weird to pay the same amount fora short update with just a few panels, and for a huge walkaround flash or crazy dream sequence.
Plus, the actual problem with monthly payments is that most people turn it into welfare and don't actually work any harder, and I feel I trust Kaz enough to not be like that.
Say what you will about Kaz, but when it takes him long to make an update, there is almost always a good reason, either the update being huge and inventive, or him going into a coma from looking at a piece of bread.
It's not like with Homestuck, where in later acts the lower update rate somehow made everything worse.
Anon there are more than 1 layers to trust. There is the sincerity of the persons intent, the others is reliability. Kaz can only be said to be one of these.
For webcomics that release on a schedule, it is the fairer option. For chaotic webcomics it is not. Kaz would get paid the same for a massive update as he would a tiny update where nothing at all happens.
Considering how fluid Prequels plot is, it could quickly stagnate the comic if updates were short and nothing really happened. Kaz needs to get things moving
Man, imagine if we had actually ended it off with a huge get
She wasn't going to use the cocaine. Not that it'd matter, being an Argonian and all.
Actually, can Argonians even get drunk? I remember Quill saying it would take a case of mead to just get a buzz, but I don't think she was serious.
it would probably have to due with their immunity to poison. so most traditional drugs probably would not do anything. and booze could be classified as a drug. so they would basically need to completely flood their system with it to get a reaction
if we go by game logic then the hist might have made an exception for booze due to it being interested only in the survival of the hist and drinking is commonly involved in negotiating. kinda like how they have tits even though they are lizards it allows for integration and familiarity with the other races.
and in the games any race can get drunk.
I am the BEST THERE IS. My entry will blow all others out of the water!
Alcohol seems to have a magical effect much like any other potion in the TES world, if an Argonian can be affected by a fortify charisma potion then alcohol is the same deal.
Does that mean I will lose because of OCD and ambition?
I just added the tag. Thanks for reminding me. NOW I CAN DOMINATE THE COMPETITION PROPERLY.
Why don't you see what people get the most - maybe even have us fill out something like "Which merchandise did you enjoy the most?" and maybe put out some alternate designs (like as I mentioned, I would love the tote bag design on a hoodie). Basically, do market research and then have a stock of those things, which you then sell.
You could always do what I did, and make up a fake language. I still use it for quick and easy name-making.
"draya" - soul
"kir" - fire
So, "drayakir" would be "firesoul," because I decided that the order of the translation would be flipped.
Hell, I have nothing better to do right now - I don't have my notebook, but I remember most of it - I can come up with a couple of names based on verbs/nouns/adjectives, what have you.
i am really not okay with how unclear the rules are here, kaz
just 'story' is not anything remotely objective, anything can have a story, so what will it be? the one with the most bizarre thing going on that has more to explain or the busiest, most cluttered piece?
or will be something more conceptual like the moodiest one?
Kazerad is not naive as to his audience.
It WAS incredibly autistic - I made it up when I first read Tolkien, and was an otherkin, and never kissed a girl. So, obviously I said "Pfffft, a fake language? Easy peasy." Except it wasn't.
Eventually, I got it good enough where you could communicate a little with it - provided your communication was meant to be used in a cheesy fantasy novel.
So, for example "Men, to arms!" would be "Atodor, oridarodor!" and "The wizard has the crystal of power, we need to place it on the altar," would be "Oridarmek mekkit umori orion-orikel."
The way it worked was you had a bunch of word components, and you would use them together to describe a thing. So, for example, "orimekdar" is composed of three components - "ori," "dar," "mek" - which means, respectively, "focus," "power," "man/person." So, it would be translated directly as a "person who focuses power."
You would run into problems if you wanted to refer to, say a scientist and an engineer. Both would be "Oridranamek," because "focus, mind, person." So in this case, the word would become longer, if you wanted to say that one of them focuses on theory, the other on application.
As I mentioned, I was severely autistic, before I decided to improve myself.
Oh, man. That's so bad and great, simultaneously. How did you go about creating it? Did you read up on any kind of linguistic content or just take inspiration from Tolkien's own?
No, I went at it with all the passion that a 13-year-old nerd would. I got books on language theory, cryptology, etc., realized I don't understand it, took the 5% that I did, and used that. IIRC, I wanted it to be high-morpheme, meaning that if one took the time, you could be extremely precise with the language.
I was a dragon, of course.
You actually made me realize that I didn't have words for color. So, let's call Katia "cat-person who is unlucky but has been noticed by higher powers." The rule I made up is that four "words" can be seperated by a hyphen.
Directly translated it would be "female person animal person - focused (strongly) being anti luck - focused on by focused spirit people (plural)"
Thanks! It was hella creative, but I'm glad I'm sane and no longer obsess over it.
I would love to, except I have no idea where they are - somewhere at my mother's place.
To put it into perspective - they are in a notebook with a pewter dragon bas-relief on the cover, holding a blue "gem" made out of glass. There are also instructions for using the language for "casting spells," on how awesome it is to be a dragon, and me finding "mystical sites" around the world.
My god. I am SO glad I am part of the generation that doesn't upload everything they do onto social media. I would never live it down.

I didn't realize that 'till just now, too.
Additionally, is it just me, or is the Khajiit woman look better than the human one?
It might just be that he has more practice drawing Khajiit women than human women, but there's also her clothes coming off. The human is fully clothed, but the Khajiit has her top off.
Is this a hint that she's more attracted to Khajiit than humans, or a hint that she actually is Khajiit-racist and believes all Khajiit women are slutty?
His artstyle doesn't translate into the actual games too well.
If you really want to play as Katia, just make a yellow Khajiit in Oblivion with the Atronach birthsign
that's what I did, it's pretty fun.
I'm looking at khajiit from Oblivion right now, and oh boy. I sure hope Bethesda can put in some work on these and Argonians before ES6.
>The human is fully clothed, but the Khajiit has her top off.
>Is this a hint that she's more attracted to Khajiit than humans, or a hint that she actually is Khajiit-racist and believes all Khajiit women are slutty?
The explanation is actually a little more complicated. If I remember correctly, Elsweyri clothing is supposed to be pretty modest, especially around the torso area. The outfit worn by the human lady is what Dodger sees as "human clothes" (and you can see her sort of trying to pull off that same look herself). When she envisions the khajiit, her imagination keeps the basically same amount of skin showing - but since khajiiti clothing is more modest this entails undressing her a little.
She's not into khajiit, she's just a teenager. Her mental process basically goes:
>bedding sound sexy
>what would a sexy khajiit even look like?
>oh my god why am I aroused
The mental image will then proceed to haunt her for weeks until she gives in and gets off to it. Being Dodger is suffering.
If I was less lazy I'd make an edit of one of the panels from QW:Take Control and have the sexy imaginary khajiit flash in behind her again after nude Katia enters the bar.
Yeah, they were finally easier on the eyes.
I had to download the Katia mod just to use her hairless-head and better eyes. Can't use the intended NPC still because updates permafucked the model (stretches everywhere).
Also used the follower-party mod so QW follows me everywhere.
And jesus fuck, Kaz really DID choose the worst combo-setup for Katia. Can't carry shit, weak, stunted majicka for a mage-build... it's full-on hard mode. I can't even liberate Kvatch.
Shame you gotta mod in something to give your unarmed attacks more punch.
I haven't found anything thats truly ideal yet, but for the moment Im using a mod that adds knuckles. They don't actually have a model so you still look unarmed.
I hope in the next TES they make unarmed a thing again.
Hell, why can't they have weapons for unarmed? Knuckles and such.
Or I guess if they decide to do modable gear like FO4 (though I don't really see how that would work in a fantasy game), they could make gauntets moddable for unarmed combat.
I wouldn't mind it if you were able to modify parts of armor if you went up through the blacksmithing tree. Like how if you made gauntlets you could shape them with knuckles or something along those lines.
What I did was head into the elf ruins, forget the name of the place, right outside the tutorial dungeon/sewer part. I stocked up on about 30 Welkynd stones and got to practice my stealth archery a little (cheap as fuck, but, as you said, Katia needs a little help). That all helped me get started on my quest; I was about level 7 when I got to Kvatch, and it was kind of difficult, but possible.
About the archery, for my class, I went with "Witchhunter", because that's what the dark elf ghost called her once. I know that's not really enough to justify her being in that class, but I didn't want to make my own custom "Sad Cat" class, and thought it was good enough.
>Physical photo of the totebag where
It's still getting made. Either me or the screenprinter had an email problem that caused a delay.
>Can't carry shit, weak, stunted majicka for a mage-build... it's full-on hard mode. I can't even liberate Kvatch.
But you have all of those kind men throwing you magicka potions! And by magicka potions I mean fireballs and lightning bolts.
Atronach effectively makes every mage in the game about five levels below you in terms of damage output. If you end up fighting lots of non-magical enemies on their own, though, you're screwed. It feels counterintuitive, but sometimes you have to leave the scamps and sorcerers alone and fight the big melee guys while you're still being shot in the back.
Also what >>77893619 said. I'm pretty sure that ruin with all the welkynd stones exists solely to help atronachs in the early game. Until you decide whether you want to start mixing your own magicka potions or stacking spell resistances, you can just crush and snort.
Yeah, there is that. But the damage is still pretty inferior to regular weaponry.
If you are a khajiit, get the perk that gives you bonus unarmed damage with heavy armor, and that enchantment, Im pretty sure mid to endgame tier weapons will still be superior.
Thats not even getting into upgrading weapons through forging.
i just wish they would bring back enchanted arrows, throwing knives, darts and stars. i want to be able to throw a dart enchanted with silence and then cutting down the helpless mage. arrows are just too heavy handed sometimes.
All thats really happened is that axes were merged into blunt, Long and short blades were merged, and spears and throwing weapons were removed comparing morrowind to skyrim.
Add no crossbows when talking about oblivion.
reminder that kaz will now have to devout his entire life to shipping the orders after having his house overtaken by bulk packages of the merchandise.
updates will be slower than ever before as a result of this successful fundraiser
>Can you elaborate on the box in the treasure chest tier?
I would say "don't buy it for the box, buy it for what's inside". I'm not going to send you an actual wooden treasure chest. The weight would be ridiculous.
>remember when elder scrolls games had like 20+ weapon types and now barely have 10
Personally, I like that they've been combining the skills, but I wish there was more gameplay variety between the weapon types.
Bethesda is making FPS games at this point, but they're still designing weapons as though this is a pen-and-paper RPG. "Axes are slower but do more damage", "daggers are faster but do less damage" are barely noticeable in a game where every melee attack consists of getting close to an enemy and clicking on them at the right time.
Crossbows were probably my favorite addition to Skyrim because they used the Marksman skill, but they had a distinctly different rhythm (firing as soon as you need and the "drawing" period happening afterwards). You could switch back and forth between them and bows, but they weren't just bows with different stats - they genuinely felt like a different weapon. The Bloodskal Blade in Dragonborn had a similar effect for Two-Handed weapons.
The problem is that these are fringe cases, whereas in an FPS this is supposed to be the case for /every/ weapon. Unarmed skill is meaningless if it's just going to be a sword with different stats, but amazing if it's Zeno Clash-style grapples and brawling. Spears are meaningless if they're just going to be swords with different stats, but amazing if they can hold enemies at a distance and do crowd control. Combining related weapon skills makes this even better, because it means you get to choose the best weapon for a particular job, rather than sticking to swords because you'd do 1/10th the damage if you picked up a spear.
Anyway, I should go sleep or something. Thanks again to everyone who ordered things. And, to those who didn't, please consider it!
Yeah, if melee remains the main focus they seriously need to make each weapon-class a fun, unique feel to each their own. And bring back polearms and throwing weapons of course.
And Dwarven guns, because I don't care anymore.
Hell, I've already got that. Several, in fact. I worldbuild, so it's pretty much a necessity (and also fun). Ciga means centipede-fortified-town, or less literally city of centipedes. Mizal (or Almiz) means river of flies. Dina-Ramaan (or Ramadina) means port-city of pomegranates. Hashisa means hippy.
It never occurred to me to make usernames out of it. Huh. Thanks, anon.
You're damn right it's autistic, but it's fun. For me, it's just a naming language right now -- it obeys certain grammar rules, it has certain words (like river and hill and walled town) made up, but I largely make up any more specific words as I need them.
In case you still care, look up the Zompist language construction kit. It's cool as shit.
>I was a dragon, of course
As you damn well should have been. Have ambition! Don't settle for simple squirrel-kin or cat-kin.
I was a fucking god. As in, I literally thought I was a god reincarnated upon Earth.
Ok, I guess not everyone would, but it would seem like a common thing to just ponder about, but not wildly believe. The whole simulation shtick doesn't seem that bad anyway as people can still think or feel, at least.
It's not bad at all. It changes nothing, because if it is a simulation then we've been in it all along. In which case the only problem is that it means we aren't the dominant power of the universe, which plenty of people already believed anyway.
There's also the Crimes against Nature version which comes with spontaneously combusting NPCs
I still try to convince myself of that when I'm having a bad day or am really stressed.
It's a shit ton easier to go out into the world and deal with shit when you believe everyone else is a soulless robot and they don't actually have emotions against you.
>It's a shit ton easier to go out into the world and deal with shit when you believe everyone else is a soulless robot and they don't actually have emotions against you.
Sounds like you're an egocentrical brat m8
>tfw I've got one of those going right now
I'm currently up to like +15 damage from enchantments, another +15 from khajiit, and dwarven armor. Gotta work on that smithing. Gotta work on that enchantment.
They were just childhood delusions of grandeur. I wasn't really otherkin -- I didn't know about anyone else who thought it, I barely went online -- but it was the same self-centred desperation to be special, to not just be one in seven billion.
I think someone needs to make an edit.

Daily reminder that the RNG God of Sevens has tasked us with producing Eight contributions of Bellyrubs. They are growing impatient! They demand that the following characters be drawn receiving bellyrubs and expressing appropriate reactions.
Young QW (Dodger)
Bonus: Garug Gro-Upp
On request I will repost the completed bellyrub pictures.
Make haste! The RNG God of Sevens is grows tiresome...
I'm half expecting her to meet Vaermina.
Katia infiltrates and is "caught" and welcomed in right away, making all this preptime, buying the FHD and the imp battle an useless joke; besides character growth, I mean.
Gaius told Sigrid about that stupid cultist Khajit mocking his reasonably apprehension-inducing dreams
Sigrid tells Stephane
Stephane manages to convince Sigrid to call Vaermina and have Katia meet her, and tells her about Katia having the key and being about to infiltrate.
Sigrid agreed because she does whatever she wants and doesn't care about anything. Robbing Katia was done for fun after all.
Vaermina will mention the nightmares during the boat ride, since
she was the one that caused them, in order to scan her memories.
But none of this will happen: even assuming Gaius tells Sigrid any of this and that Stephane manages to convince her to help Katia, summoning Vaermina costs a fortune, and Sigrid wouldn't have enough time to get everything ready for the ritual.
But I can dream, right?
It'd be neat to draw this for the contest, though
Look I'm just the messenger. The RNG God of Sevens tasked us with 8 contributions. If you want to question this God and chance your life turning into a Final Destination movie, be my guest.
>summoning Vaermina costs a fortune
It's actually not that hard to contact the Daedric Princes, as long as you go to their shrine on the right day.
Unless you're the player character, in which case they'll be tripping over their own dicks to talk to you, but that's a different story.
Maybe old in human years; probably much younger in argonian years. Also Kaz hasn't done anything to artistically style QW as being old so I wouldn't put too much stock into her age affecting her characteristics.
>Every woman is an old woman in Oblivion.
>mistaking bellyrubs for sexual
you are a horrible person.
bellyrubs are never implicit on sexual
I think it's supposed to be Weedum-Ja with her tail drawn slightly too thin and her hands with a more traditional texture. Weedum-Ja x Bartender is a popular and Kazerad-approved ship.
>Somebody should draw her cosplaying in the various Vampire outfits from the games.
Ten bucks and I'll make your dreams come true.
Also, how many anons here are giving the contests a try? I've counted only three so far.
That's oddly specific. What's in your mind, anon?
You draw cute monsters with shiny carapace shit
That's basically all it takes to draw Frieza, innit? The world doesn't have enough cute Frieza.
Well, whatever they are, they're shiny and purple.
You mean the one that she morphed out of within a couple of minutes? We barely saw the third form at all.
It's not your IP and once you start getting payed it's a lot harder to justify Fair Use.
Yeah.. Okay I'll move on. I was delusional.
and yes, ear scritches would be sufficient.
Thanks, I've spent a few hours and a few thousand Ctrl-Zs on it. I'd just be writing or playing PMD4 otherwise if this contest hadn't come up.

How do I go about showing a balcony and the floor below without having the spectator floating in the air? Is there some perspective trick to it?
If that doesn't work there's probably some sort of perspective reference sheet you can find. Otherwise you can draw the lower floor first and then add the balcony on top using a different, closer perspective.
Either has to be a high angle shot looking down or pic related.
Or 3/4 view for ye olde gaming authenticity.

I stared too hard at pixels and now I can't see. I should probably eat food today.
Isn't Vivec a man? He's still in a mostly physical and mortal body, right? So he's pretty much stuck a "he".
Molag Bal, however, as a Daedric Prince, can mold his body into any shape. And, according to the wiki, he appeared to one of his cults as a mortal female.
My point is, in this conception of the first vampires or whatever mysterious race, Vivec probably knocked up Molag Bal.
Meaning Vivec fucked the King of Rape.
>Isn't Vivec a man?
S/he is the union of male and female, the magic hermaphrodite, the martial axiom, the sex-death of language and unique in all the middle world.
Check your privilege, s'witlord.
It has justifications of being directly related to an actual webcomic. Katia and the rest are characters in a webcomic.
Cider just posted a suggestive picture of an anthropomorphic racoon that doesn't feature in any webcomic or cartoon but is just an idea for a possible eventual work of his.
I've been banned for posting http://41.media.tumblr.com/37c5ec5d7ad94f8f02d57b852ff4580c/tumblr_noy6x6gjER1tdv657o1_r1_1280.png before, and this was even relevant to the thread and mostly SFW, I even put it behind a spoiler just to be safe.
Its all good I should probably remember the rules I suppose, I kinda forgot that one due to the content of this thread and people inviting me to post my own stuff in the past. Its on my tumblr if you wanna see it haha. I'll be more careful in the future.
Vivec got himself into a pickle when Daedra cut his feet off when he was practicing his giant form because he was bored.
The Daedra tied him down and Molag Bal decided to show up.
Vivec then went like "hey how about you marry me instead of raping me? As a dowry I will offer you an opportunity to facefuck me".
Molag Bal accepted this. His dowry was that he flexed his arms, revealing the secret syllable of royalty to Vivec.
They then got married, fucked a bunch and had many babies.
