Song page! Instead of cutting it up into 2 pages, I figured I'd just make the page longer :)

Also, I drew the character lineart in Manga Studio! (but still did coloring and stuff in FLASH, I'm still not used to using other programs).

What do you guys think?

Also also, thank you for your patience! As usual, I've been busy making videos for LORE, not too long ago I was in Philly for Picoday week, and I'm working on cartoons for my youtube channel! I got a lot going on, but I'll do what I can to keep SQ updating :)

Fantastic as always! I've always wanted to see these songs in actual animated musical form, though. Hopefully that can become a reality!

Oh, and I believe you made a typo in panel 13. "Tonight everything will all make sese."

TerminalMontage, May 6th, 2015, 5:05 pm


Wow how embarrassing, thanks! I'll fix that asap!

I never know what tune to "sing" these songs to. D:

Since it's a comic, it's hard to convey what kind of tune they should have. We try to just make them rhyme nicely, while hoping you can make it sound good in your head! :'D

Wow, what an obnoxious Neighbor.

Everything looks as smooth and crisp as ever, but there is a bit of aliasing going on. Barely noticeable, hardly a worry.

Honestly speaking, as a long time reader, previous pages just before this look cleaner... But at the same time this does look somewhat nicer in a way, kind of gives it that more video game sidequest-y feel with the little bit of aliasing that's occurring... And When changing programs, you do have to keep in mind, it will take getting used to.

idea
Jeremy, you need to finish the comic so someone can make a musical out of it.

TerminalMontage, May 11th, 2015, 12:04 am


This page has a slight glow to it, I copied the entire page in another layer and made it an overlay (or was it screen?) I think that is what's making the aliasing more noticeable.

In future pages it should be slightly less so, but even with the aliasing I'm going to stick with Manga Studio just because it's so pleasant to draw in. I'm really tired of Flash's brush, it's frustrating to use and it makes me dread working on anything. It's also why I never use smoothness in my animations anymore.

And Ivy... <3

That was awesome.

Neat
Jeremy has a Ding Dong beard
:3

I hope we get to see more of Jeremy's "magic" in this episode.

Takeshre, May 12th, 2015, 9:46 pm


I THOUGHT I noticed a slight glow. It gives the page a nice lighting feel as opposed to a flatly shaded cartoon. The aliasing could be problematic, but if you can fix that, I really like what you're doing here. This comic's quality sure has come a long way from how it was at the start, and even back then it was charming!

wish
wish this could become a TV show or something like that, it would suit it's style!

TerminalMontage, May 23rd, 2015, 9:47 pm


One day Wafflez, one day. We're slowly working on it! That's our main goal!

Mockeo (Guest), May 24th, 2015, 10:07 am


I have an everlasting wish for Sidequests to become a musical.

SuperSethBros (Guest), May 28th, 2015, 10:33 pm

Concept for Jer
Hey man. I just read this page and realized I could try singing this out with a couple of pals and upload it to YouTube. Would you be up for this?

TerminalMontage, May 29th, 2015, 1:01 am


Hey that sounds cool, go right ahead!

Nease01 (Guest), June 1st, 2015, 5:39 pm


i find it funny how there singing about overthrowing the queen in the middle of her kingdom.

SuperSethBros (Guest), June 8th, 2015, 8:37 pm


Thanks for allowing me, Jer! We'll start work on it soon!

Dalmez (Guest), June 10th, 2015, 5:26 am


Jeff is so damn hilarious and jolly. I never could've thought of a more lovable character. I really admire your style of story making, you add personality to every character and everyone just loves them. I ESPECIALLY love page 126 of him. Hilarious.

TerminalMontage, June 10th, 2015, 4:59 pm


Thanks Dalmez! I'm glad you like him ^_^

I'm working on a page now, hopefully I can get it out soon!

Dalmez (Guest), June 11th, 2015, 4:57 am


As another thing, (I enjoy reading this comic multiple times) and finding specific things that return to each other. Such as how Jeremy's clothes were being sewed, previously being hit with an arrow whilst it being on top of Jeff's head. There's really a lot of polish and you've done very well to close loopholes!

TerminalMontage, June 11th, 2015, 6:32 pm


Thanks again! I'm glad you noticed, we like making sure everything has a purpose, and there are a lot of other little things that will connect to things in the future! :D

TerminalMontage, June 16th, 2015, 1:54 am


I updated the page! I changed the colors, and removed the aliasing that was going on. Everything should look much smoother now :)

DuskoRisko, June 16th, 2015, 4:23 pm


If you had a nickel for every time I opened this page up looking for an update, you could maybe buy a sub-par dinner at a chain restaurant. Really pining for more of this comic.

TerminalMontage, June 16th, 2015, 6:31 pm


Come back tomorrow my friend! I promise there will be one :)
