Guess it'll be eight parts in the Chronicle after all. :P

Anyway, I'll fully admit, I've had the fortune of never experiencing this, nor having even any immediate family experience this.

However, if I did my job writing this well, then this comic will hit far too close to home for many people, as they see how quickly a life can spiral downhill.

Kinas's true fall wasn't during the disaster, but really, how he handled it. Becoming a heavy drinker ruined him, and rather than providing an escape from the pain, it only made things hurt worse.

You can visually see how his life degenerated from bad to worse so quickly. Unable to adapt to his new world, Kinas just collapsed. He sunk, into a place filled with bad things, and almost never returned.

He distanced himself from everyone he knew, even the one he was closest to. And he let his emotions overwhelm and destroy him.

He told you when this thing began that his story was a sad one, that it was a tragic tale. And I think now you finally have a grasp on why.

This is as bad as it gets, though. The eight part is his recovery. (Since, come modern times for the comic, he's obviously better, you knew he had to at some point. :P)


Anyway, as for the art here, it's not the greatest, but the focus was on Kinas's degeneration. The Bar was basic, the mug was basic, Sinaer was just thrown in there to show her two faces (absolute shock at Kinas telling her to go away, and then crying while attempting to smile as he pushes her away is what I was trying to convey), but the true focus was to show Kinas slowly degenerating into dark places.

As his mind closed down, so too did his body, and so too did his aura, showing a progressively more lifeless body. He was meant to effectively be a walking corpse by the time he was done transforming.

And I think I captured that pretty well. Perhaps not as well as I could, but well enough for a side-comic, at least. :P

Thanks. :)

It'll be the final part in Kinas's Chronicle, so I tried to make it end on a high note. (Not only the art, either...)

It won't be amazing art, but it'll still be good art, and among the best I've ever done. (As sad as that sounds. :P)

Indeed. That's one of the themes in my comic--everyone has something to bring to the table, everyone has their own unique and important role to play, strong in their own individual ways. ;)
