So this comic is, obviously, followthrough from last year meant to both celebrate The Descended's half-year anniversary and simultaneously my birthday (not to mention, the day I devoted myself to my webcomic), but there's more to this page's intention.

The idea was to draw all 12 current main cast members and to make them look as gorgeous as they could be--while also showing off the character's heights. Basically, to show off my artistic skill with the best I can draw, posting it at 6 am.

I pretty much failed at all those goals miserably. :P (Especially the time one--it's still my birthday as I post this, but by the time most people read this, it'll be the 24th to them. :P) The last time I had this goal (and for a less-ambitious single character!), it took me months, from the sketch to the final digital product.

...I had a week to do both. :P I needed at least 2-4 weeks to do the job properly, time I lacked, meaning the end result just isn't as good as I was hoping it'd be. :/

Anyway, I realize my lack of artistic skill prevents you from understanding what's going on clearly, so let me interpret:

-Sanik and Tyra are in a parenting-ish pose. With his arm around her shoulder and her arm around his waist, they're basically in the stance you'd find a mother and father in when posing for a picture. (Sanik is 6 feet tall; Tyra is 5'10".)

-Sinaer is resting her head on Kinas's shoulder, who his leaning his head onto hers. They're also holding hands. (Kinas is six feet tall; Sinaer is 5'11".)

-Aria has her hands on Argus's shoulders (and is ghosting out to do so), and Argus has his hands on top of hers in turn. (Argus is also six feet tall; Aria's height isn't relevant thanks to ghosting, but she's 5'7".)

-Nathan's being a punk. (At six feet and three inches, he's the second-tallest member of the cast.)

-Enlecar's leaning against a wall. (Represented by the panel boarder.) This invalidates his height, which should be 5'11".

-Davos is crossing his arms, posing. (He is six foot two.)
-Sasha is in a similar pose. (She's actually drawn a bit taller than she should be; she's short, being only 5'4".)
-Sarge is just standing there. (He's the tallest cast member, at 6'4".)

-M, ever pragmatic and with the end goal in sight, is holding the knife to cut the cake with. :P
(M is a bit behind the other characters, so height is also not as valid--all the same, M's height is 70.5 inches, AKA 5 feet, ten and a half inches.)

It's not nearly as awesome a page as I'd like, but despite all the artistic flaws and lack of polish, I'd say it's still among my strongest works as an artist, sad as that may be. :P

Anyway, here is the drawing at full size, so you can see the details *slightly* more clearly. :P

Funnily enough, I was working on the next comic page, having finished the sketch, scanned it, and being ready to digitize it...when I realized,

"...Crud, it's July 16th."
So I had to put that comic page on the backburner to rush to get this finished. :P

So you'll actually be seeing a regular update in the near-future.

If I had my way, I'd be reading every single CF comic, and commenting on every single comic released, and supporting them all with my insight.

...Unfortunately, being human, I can't do that. :P But I do my best to try! ;)

Yours is certainly worth the effort. :)

And thank you. ^_^

Happy Birthday, as well as anniversary, Man! Hope you get lotsa gifts!
Bree 24th Jul 2013, 8:11 PM edit delete reply
Again, most of the gifts I get are the ones I make for myself, along with the comments. But it's nice to get them, all the same. Makes life worth living, knowing that there are others out there who support and care for ya. :)

I am sorry - I am a wee bit late commenting, but Happy Birthday. (And that picture, totally awesome!)
Bree 24th Jul 2013, 8:12 PM edit delete reply
Nah, not really late commenting at all. It's my fault for having released the comic so late, not yours. :P

And thank you. I did try. :)

is this drawn in ms paint?
Bree 19th Aug 2013, 4:22 PM edit delete reply
Nope, hand-drawn by a sketch (you can see the original sketch here), and then, drawn in GIMP.

Admittedly, it's not as good as it should be. There's plenty of errors, but hey, I think I'm getting better; next year, a similar sketch might actually look awesome. :P
