For some reason, when I first saw a picture of Therazane The Stonemother, my first thought was, “she’s a perfect match for the Thing!” Maybe it’s cause they both have blue eyes… hmm…

Ok, this one I hope yall take lightheartedly. >) I was just thinking about this the other day, seeing the new raids/dungeons and it reminded me how heavily greek, egyptian, norse, lovecraft, etc types of mythology influence the game. Which got me thinking, what’s left to do? JC & Pals of course, though I doubt they’d ever go that far… maybe start bringing in some of the eastern gods?
My apologize to the country of Sweden for probably butchering their language. If it makes you feel any better, I butcher english just as much. >)
Oh, and there’s a new tutorial up! Tutorial: Wonders of the Wacky Wacom
ALSO!!! I’ll be at the Tampa Comic Con on February 20th so come on down if you’re nearby!
Patches are so confusing these days… So many ups and downs, cheering for your team, booing for the opposing (rouges). But in light of the impending 4.0.6, it seems like a good mix of good and bad. Anyways, don’t ask why, but on a long drive the other day, this song popped into my head.
Um… Today’s cameo is uh… Katyperry I guess? lol! XD
That’s right folks! Your ol buddy Coffinshaker caught himself a cold or something, so until my body stops feeling like it’s shoved in a meat grinder, I’m going to rest up a bit. So there will be no mini this week. And possibly no Friday comic this week either… sorry in advance! I will have a monday comic though, come hell or high water I’ll get it done!
Btw goblins… welcome to the Horde! XD
And YIKES! Can you believe this is comic #51?! Yeah, I totally missed my 50th… but um… it doesn’t have to be an even number right? It can be an arbitrary or belated number… right? RIGHT?! XD
I’m happy to share a new little something I’m doing on the side with you all! I’ve started putting together some tutorials, I have one up now and I plan to make more, though the frequency I’m not sure about yet (still getting ready for tampa and megacon)… But I figured I might be able to share a bit of “wisdom” with you folks.
This first tutorial is a bit on the left brained side of art, the business end. Specifically, it’s the why and how you can get set up as a business as an artist. Ok, I realize now it’s pretty much specific to U.S. artists, but hopefully it helps some peoples out a little.
So check it out! Jester Brand Tutorial: The Business Of Art!!
Yes… because I really did try to do this too! For those who have not been yet, you get a quest early on in Vashj’ir that gives you under water breathing. It doesn’t even show up in your spell book, but you get the buff for [sea legs] or something like that, making you breath under water and run fast on the bottom. Of course… one would think you could just use it anywhere, even along the coasts of Azeroth… cause you know, it’s the same ocean and all… but alas, the spell seems to only work in one place.
To be honest though, I really like the new underwater area visually, but HATED questing there! Swim here, swim there, your turtle goes slower than the sea horse that you get from a quest, and instead of only worrying about mobs on the ground, they’re surrounding you completely. What’s worse, is the quest structure! I finished the quests, or at least I think I did and they just stop! I swam around and around for a follow up or any indication on where to go next, but I couldn’t find anything… So I hoped a portal to Hyjal. I hear it’s a bit better up there quest-wise.
