33 hours, $4000 — you people need to do this.
Songgu Kwon is a former Xeric grant winner for Blanche the Baby Killer. He currently works in the animation business doing things like character designs for Metalocalypse. I daresay, he draws like a melon farmer. Gorgeous stuff.
He also has a long running webcomic called Elf that takes on RPG tropes in a weird and wacky way.
Imaging Knights of the Dinner Table drawn by Cliff Chiang. Sort of.
Anyway he has a kickstarter for acollected edition that needs only $4000 dollars in 33 hours. A little about it.
Elf is a fantasy web comic that I started in 2012 as a fun project that I could develop little by little, uploading just one page a week.
It began as a series of short vignettes centered around an archetypical Tolkienesque elf character and her talking wombat sidekick, Clarence. A rather strange fellow named Pieter would soon join them.
Clarence is no ordinary wombat. He’s really of a subspecies I like to call… the Greater Wombat!
The initial strips were conceived with very little planning. I wanted to poke fun at and pay homage to the high fantasy genre as represented in countless books, films, video games, and my own experiences playing table top RPGs in the days of my youth.
In a nutshell, Elf is a story about a warrior called Blackfeather, who just wants to hang out with her pals, help others, and have adventures. This simple goal comes with many obstacles as deadly perils as well as the elf’s own past crash into her path.
I think the art speaks for itself.
Let’s do this people!
