Vincent - Concept sketch by Dark-S1ayer
Vincent - Concept sketch
Savior? Perpetrator?

A former detective, now private investigator, this fellow here is one law-enforcer that has a unique advantage that most wouldn't expect. Sleep isn't necessary. Blood is though. But when you're a vampire, that's all part of the package. What separates Vincent from the rest, though, is that need to do the right thing. Perhaps it's because he's seen enough death over the years, perhaps he's just tired of seeing those that have been wronged not get the justice they deserve, or maybe he's just a vampire in need of an outlet? Either way, you'll never find a more dedicated man than this one here.

Dean - Concept sketch
Man? Beast?

If nature and what was expected of you were one and the same, would you simply conform? Or would you seek...more? Go beyond the boundaries of the life you were expected to live, instead of sticking to the rules, the laws of nature, or even survival of the fittest, where you're simply 'surviving'. After all, what is life, if you're not living it? What is YOUR life?

I'd say this guy here is asking himself these very same questions, wondering if the life he's leading is the one he wants.

Meryl reference sheet by Dark-S1ayer
Meryl reference sheet
Considering who seems to be slowly taking over my gallery, I'm sure you guys might have a good idea of who the main focus of the comic will be about. XD

Can't really talk about the "eye thing" yet, so you'll just have to use your imaginations on what that's about.

As for the rest, I wanted to portray her as someone who could be just as loving as she is fierce in a gun battle. Guns are just her weapons of choice. Blame that on too much Devil May Cry, growing up. XD But I admit westerns also had a hand in developing her too, as you can see with the revolver.

The cross, was an interesting thing to add, because when I was developing Meryl, I went through a few variations. Eventually I began pondering Mercenaries, gunslingers, hunters, and I wondered about their morals... do they ever regret the things they've done? How much do they thing about the lives they've effected? I think this is when my time from reading Top Cow's "Magdalena" came into play and possibly a few versions of Marvel's "Elektra". Because I wondered about Mercenaries with faith, those who thought about leaving or staying, or about if they were picky with their jobs, or if they went with specific jobs for particular reasons. I imagined her finding religion after experiencing so much bloodshed, and believed that if she could find a cause, that she would stick to it. And that's what she does in the comic.

Because she's got one of the purest hearts in this world I've made. Like I said, she doesn't take lives so easily. She wants to help others, and I think that's both her weakness and greatest strength. Her heart. Cliche'd I know, but it's because of her heart, that she goes to the lengths that she does to help the people she comes into contact with. It's the people who are on the opposite side of her objective, that I'd be worried for...

In any case, I figured I'd upload this old thing, since it wouldn't have appeared otherwise. It's one of my favorite pieces and also one of the most in-depth of Meryl, here. I remember when this was finished, I just wanted to cry, because I felt like this was when I started seeing it starting to come together. It made my day, and working with this artist was just, it was something I'll never forget.

:iconniolynn: is and was a fine artist, and believe me the commissions as you can see, were well worth it. I hope she returns someday.

Nio, wherever you are, thank you, and I hope you are excelling at what you do best. You are missed.

Bryan - concept by Dark-S1ayer
Bryan - concept

Bryan Deacon Haez, everyone. This fella's an upcoming boxer who's got everything he could possibly want in life, a stable career, the girl of his dreams who he's about to marry, and not a care in the world. But fate has other plans, and what happens next, will change his life forever, or destroy him in the process.

Alright, after months and years of work, and keeping silent... I'm proud to OFFICIALLY ANNOUNCE THE FAR SIDE OF NORMAL webcomic!



It's an interesting comic that will venture into many different genres as it progresses. Though I've always considered it somewhere between sci-fi and fantasy, personally.


But where are my manners...

Folks, I'm not alone in this endeavor... I found myself a lovely partner in the form of the talented and extremely delightful :iconkittydee: who has been a blessing and absolute joy to work with! Check her gallery out, if you don't believe me, and hell check it out anyway, because her art style never ceases to amaze me. :D


She has been so very monumentally helpful in this, and I must confess, I would not have come this far, without her. Thanks again, Dee!


But back to business, she's handling the page work whilst I'm dishing out the scripts and story, all of which have been looking very promising, and I can't wait to show you all!





Now then, as for a "release date", I'm saying around Late this year, early 2015, at the latest.






However! In the meantime, I will be posting concept art, teasers, a bit of info, and more, in regards to what you have to look forward to with the comic. This will happen at least once a month.


This has been a huge endeavor from the beginning (which started... I believe back in high school with the development of a character or two you'll come across in the comic itself) and hell, it started off as one thing, then another, and went back and forth between this and that, before it became this singular universe that I've built.


I had developed all these characters, and I hope you find each of them as interesting as the last. And who knows, maybe even find some favorites, amongst the crew, yourselves!



I will be releasing a few things today for you guys to take a look at, and I hope you all like it. Since this is just the beginning!


And remember to stay tuned, my friends. You're in for one hell of a ride.








I'd also like to mention, that my dear partner :iconkittydee: is also taking commissions! I can't express how great and awesome her art is! Feel free to drop by her page for a glance at her gallery, commissions, or even just to say hi! You know you want to! :D Give her some love!
