Scroll 5 End

Page 11____back to archive____Scroll 6

and thus ends the starting “miniseries” (as i have learnt it is called) of the restless.

gonna be honest i’m not too proud of it and it definitely has it’s problems, one of the reasons i’m remaking the first 3 scrolls as a side project, but i intend to improve upon my mistakes and failing so that by the time The Restless eventually reaches it’s final scroll thinks will be perhaps 3/4 of the way decent.

for the next few weeks i’ll be focusing on finishing the scroll 1 remake before starting scroll 6. scroll 6 will be told from clueless’ perspective, which i will be indicating using a different art and writing style, but for the most part future scrolls will be drawn in the current style or some evolution of it. scrolls from 6 onwards will tend to have a “story an episode” format but still contribute towards an ongoing story like how i prefer my tv shows.
i will update about to sides of a4 worth each week and each scroll will be about 12 sheets of content long.

i will also invest in a space progr… i’m not prime minister? well that sucks.

so scroll 5 concludes not with a whimper, but with a double page. i’ll give an explanation for where i’m going now in the scroll end panel.
if you’re wondering the wizard robe designs are based off of the karate suit i use, i figure it looks close enough to robes for a wizard but practical enough to not look silly/require me to draw fluidly moving fabrics.
for the record i know the meaning of sabbatical, i just heard it in ringworld (which if you don’t know is about some guy going to a giant space hula hoop and constantly bonking his travel companion) and it sounded like a cool term for something like this plus it’s not like our words make sense anymore: September, decimate, “selfie”i really hate the word “selfie”, did i mention that?

also apparently whine is an onomatopoeia of itself, our language is even more weird…

in a fight don’t be a hot rod.
yes that’s a new design on brightsaber’s shoulder pauldron thing, i felt it needed something and… well i can attribute the change to unreliable narration, yeah if you didn’t know the restless is written from the perspective of ted’s “captain’s log” as it were of his adventures (with the blanks filled in with help from his companions) and the art is inferred from his in universe descriptions of things. “that seems like an overly complicated set up when you could never bother to explain it like any other work of fiction not set specifically in the first person!” well i have my reasons and they will be debuting in scroll 6.

according to a quick research on some dog keeping forums female dogs (and maybe by reverse-extention wolves) cock their legs to mark territory. i wouldn’t swear by it but i don’t think i could draw a wolf squatting on ted’s leg, she’s not a skyrim horse, so this is what ya got.

you have to remember that ted and clue are nicknames.

i know it’s kind of a canis-ex-machina but… hold on a mo! is that dull surprise i spy in panel 5? yes, yes it is.

i bet you're glad i paint-tooled ted's eyes in the finished product

note: i drew this before i had Dora’s character model worked out, it turns out i can kinda draw wolves much to my surprise.

sometimes you’ve just gotta make a world feel big, so here is a tiny swathe of the capital city of a tiny nation on a oddly massive small moon around a gas giant… in a backwater section of etcetera etcetera.on that note don’t try to make sense of the celestial objects in the sky, i want to play it smart but in the end that seems like way too much work for me, that said i’m not completely not trying.also the comic borders are now scroll title card background coloured, which makes sense
ha ha, comedic echo
