I didn’t do it last week because poops on me. THIS WEEK, once my homework is done, I’m going to sit down and outline the mood, plot, context, and subplot of a ghost story I’d like to put out sometime before October.
I’m thinking of doing it all 100% traditionally, with monotone blue watercolors and India ink. I’m hoping that would give it a charming and friendly tone visually.
Webcomic Wednesday: The Way To Your Heart
The Way to Your Heart is a visual kei and shoujo inspired webcomic by Emily Muto who wanted to create a comic merging her interests. The story revolves around a sweet and intelligent high school student named Yumi and her confusing encounters with the members of a visual kei band called Orochi.
The Way to Your Heart has come a long way since it first began. There is no doubt artist and writer Muto has a deep love for her characters which translates into beautiful panels of art. Each character has also become dimensional with unique pasts and dark secrets.
Although The Way to Your Heart is a romantic and comedic webcomic, there are several themes we could learn from such as the strength of forgiveness and the ability to overcome the greatest darkness. Other morals to be learned are staying true to yourself and your convictions. It may borrow inspiration from Mrs. Muto’s interests but manages to remain charming and is constantly evolving into its own unique series.
Muto successfully plays the reader’s heart strings; as the comic progresses Muto harnesses this skill ever more efficiently. The Way to Your Heart is a work in progress but a pleasure to read.
Special Thanks to Emily Muto for allowing us to use the above image for this review.
This week, I’m going to further develop a projected called Heartbeat, the story of a psych student named Nory who works in a flower shop, accidentally gets superpowers and has to fighting relationship-sterotype-themed bad guys while trying to sort out her own baggage.
Color symbolism would be MEGACRAZY, and different colors would have an underlying meaning. Each color represents different aspects or sterotypes of a romantic relationship.
Right now my biggest issue is solidifying important plot points and character roles. It’s all very fluid and uncertain in my mind right now.

Webcomic Wednesday: A Modest Destiny
A Modest Destiny is an epic fantasy series of pixel art which can quickly become an overwhelming addiction. Parody fantasy cliches are strewn about frequently but in good taste, keeping this web-comic light and witty even when topics gravitate towards the dark side.
Follow the adventures of Maxim and his group of quirky friends as they do battle with hordes of the undead, giant blobs of slime and Dark Knight.
Meet colourful characters such as Lord Fluffy, a 2000-year-old necromancer; Hechter, a cuddly suit of armor; Hubert, a drunkard thief; and Gustav, an incredibly strong warrior with intense fears of the undead.
AMD is an entertaining read that can be picked up anywhere in the storyline without feeling completely lost, but reading entirely through the series is well worth it for a developed plot full of continual laughs.
If you’re more interested in sci-fi than fantasy The Starship Destiny featured in the squidi.net junkyard is also worth checking out.
Special thanks to Sean Howard for allowing us to use a page of his comic.
