Everafter =/= Endzone, and other common mistakes.

Journal Entry: Wed Apr 15, 2009, 10:01 AM
To clarify:


1. Everafter is an at-the-current-time hiatus'd webcomic I began on Snafu Comics, after being invited by the incredibly awesome and unbelievably generous SnafuDave. It began as a story about a psychotic, doll-like version of Little Red Riding Hood tearing through a vault door and slicing a bunch of heavily armed soldiers into ribbons. Shortly after this introduction was made, the tone and overall look of the entire story changed, and I decided to backtrack to another sort of beginning. Though the original introduction was already quite well established, as such, I decided to tack on the newer beginning to this. This is why it undergoes a very strong stylistic change after the initial scene.
  Also, for every time I have been asked when it will update since announcing it is on hiatus, I have sacrificed a kitten and extended the hiatus by twenty two and a half days.

2. bleedman is not the creator of Everafter. He is another artist at Snafu Comics who created the Grim Tales and Sugar Bits series. No he did not introduce the concept of Everafter to me and 'give' me the story, no, the saw wielding version of Red is not his original character introduced in Sugar Bits. Seen here: sugar.snafu-comics.com/ &… is a cameo. No, the universes don't overlap one another in some super serious arc of epic awesome. It's a cameo.

3. The "Intermission" line of comics that arrived in the middle of the Everafter webcomic are not canon, they do not prove all the webcomics on Snafu are somehow interrelated, and it does not mean Grim Jr. and Minimandy are going to pop into the Everafter asylum again at some point in the story. This was a completely separate, non-canon, fun shindig I decided to do to show my appreciation for being on the website. The comic was meant for fun, nothing else.

4. Endzone was an original character tournament I began hosting on June 7th of 2007, that I never should have titled with the letter "E" because so many people seem to juxtapose Endzone and Everafter and get the two confused to all hell. Haha.

  It was a competition set in the Everafter universe, in that it took place on the island where the Everafter asylum was built. It starred 64 competitors who each battled against one another with comic pieces until there were only two left standing. Those two were lan-kun and Unknown-person. Unknown ended up taking the grand prize, which brings me to my next point.

5. The 'Finale' line of comics I have recently begun submitting are the tail end of the events of the Endzone tournament (which, as you should remember, is set in the Everafter universe, but NOT a canon continuation of the series.) It is the grand prize Unknown-Person won for defeating everyone else in the tournament.
For the folks who are completely perplexed by these comics, you have to go back to the very beginnings of Endzone and begin reading everyone's entries. Endzone began with this round: endling.deviantart.com/journal… can then trail up the rest of my journals and find each and every single round afterwards. (Except for the folks who deleted their submissions afterwards.) This should get you up to speed, and make the confrontation between Red and Climber have a bit more weight behind it.

6. The animated teaser trailer for the Red v. Climber confrontation was created by Unknown-person after I gave him the storyboards for the actual finale. This is why, if you've watched the trailer, you'll notice very specific key frames and happenings mirrored in both. Unknown will not be making his own segment of the finale, because this is the prize for winning Endzone. : P It'd be kind of silly for him to make his own grand prize. Although we had talked about an epilogue..  > o>

7. Living in Sin and Ree are not yet full comics. They can't be found anywhere else but here in my gallery. There is no other site for their respective comics.

8. There will never be a character from Alice in Wonderland in Everafter. You can stop sending suggestions, please. XD It's just not going to happen.

9. No, I do not take requests.

10. Yes, you can cosplay my characters if you want. My only demand is that you link to the resulting pictures. XD

11. I pencil my work, scan it in, and then use Photoshop CS on the rest.






Just clearing up some very, very common questions and misconceptions. Will be adding more to this list later so I can simply link to it when folks get all befuddled as they are prone to do now that I'm updating the Finale.

Hmmm.. I know you're not going to be happy about this, but "The Everafter webcomic: ON LONGTERM HIATUS. (No updates till the Endzone finale is drawn.)" Does the fact that the last part of Endzone was posted in 2010 mean that this statement is voided? Sorry yet again for asking & lessening your collection of cats..

I have one question, and probably one you've had before, but I wouldn't know ^_^;

How long does it take to create a full rendered comic page like the recent comics of Everafter and LoT? I'm mostly asking this out of curiosity (obviously, ha ha!)

Best of luck, Endling!

WTF people. W.T.F

Either way, at least now your answer's to the people will be as short as [link] and maybe a 'have a nice day' or some shit XD
Oh well, take it easy Endling :heart:













What do you do with the kittens before you kill them? And if they get hungry, do you feed them to a dog? P:

Hmmm. Troubling is this fact of while everyone hear "knows" the diferance between endzone and everafter, you still get attacked by this ignorance. Where is this mass of idiodic antaginizers that have angered you so? Mayhaps, somewhere in dark basments lay trolls. trolls that only know fear and hate and project there poison at you though the icy glow of there computers. I wish you luck against this hoard.

Do you like Ree or Lilith better?

Are Lilith's head skulls from Alice and that's why there won't be an Alice character in EA?

When are you going to finish EA?

Why haven't you updated EA in so long?

If I stick your stylus up my butt will I be able to draw like you?

really sorry it had to result to you typing out the long thing, when really it's everywhere to begin with.
i've only been watching you since like end of '08, and even i figured that stuff out.
never mixed you and *bleedman though, you two have completely different comic styles.

well, good luck, hopefully no more kittens die, and maybe you won't have to add to this -hugs-

So I take it that twenty-two-and-a-half extension will be filled by the Endzone finale and stuff?

And might I add that you are highly modest to point these noobs in the right direction.

What I find painfully entertaining is, on a totally separate website someone ripped off Everafter (name and all) for an Original character RP. It was such a great story premise I joined it... then a while later I found Snafu and was like "WAIT WHAT? That was a rip off??"

>.> I need to buy Endling and make him draw the character from that >.> Yea right like I've got enough to buy Endling *rolls*

But you can make Alice as a ghost who got killed in an accident, only wanting to play with people and have the ability to rain down card soldiers holding and pointing spears down at the ground... It can be called "Die For Me"
And she could speak Japanese after spending Death in Japan. And you can make her skin white and her dress in blue, true blue.
She could also have immense magical powers and cast spells like Agilao, Bufula, Megido, and of course Die For Me. Tetrakarn, Recarm, Mudo, and she could be one of the 22 groups called the Tarot, and she could be of the Death arcana.

If people are wondering, yes, there are references in this post. If they aren't, I like cats.

Hm? Ohey, aren't you Red?

Wait, what? People didn't know these things already? Who the hell thinks Bleedman created Everafter? Or Red for that matter?

But whatever, good list of info nonetheless. It should keep some of the more obvious questions away for the time being...until inevitably somebody reads Everafter for the first time, realizes it's on hiatus, and then furiously emails you why. :lol:

Pfff, Bleedman's okay, but him being the creator of EverAfter?

That's just preposterous. Peeps need to read more.

Actually, it's funny that you mentioned an Alice in Wonderland character. As it turns out, for the failed EA rp for the turnip garden, I was going to have alice be a character. I mean, COME ON,SHE HAS CONVERSATIONS WITH HERSELF. Then again, I can understand why you might not want to include any characters from that series. The book was such a bore.
