Parcel (unfinished) - Page 9/28 by algenpfleger Parcel (unfinished) - Page 9/28 by algenpfleger
Hey!

So I've decided to upload this unfinished manga-styled comic that I did earlier this year. It's an idea that was quite close to my heart at the time and that I needed to get off my chest. However, working it out and turning it into a short story took two months and during those two months my life transformed a lot (due to unrelated factors) and what happened was that before I was done I had lost all connection to it - I still felt the story, but while when I had started working on it I had this urge to get it out, two months later I really needed to leave it behind in the process of growing as a person. Now I look back at it and think how terribly sappy and emotional and cheesy it is, but I know how much it meant to me at some point, so I will share it for everybody who might currently be in a phase where they can connect to it.

The ending is slightly rushed and the whole thing is missing background inks and screentones, but all the core elements are there. So please read it if you're interested, and let me know what you think or if it induced some feels.


Read from right to left.

Hey alpen, I think you're doing a great job with this story. It's very rare for me to follow a story that I find here on dA. I think the panel set up and dialogue sort of invite readers to see what's going on. Hope that makes sense. Anyways, looking forward to see where this goes!

Irgendwie repräsentiert dieser comic gerade auch mein Leben. Ich bin gespannt wie er sich noch entwickelt wird. Ich mag das Charakterdesign der Hauptdarstellerin, ihre Frisur und Verhalten erinnert mich ein wenig an Chihiro aus Spirited Away :)

Hey man, is it the attitude you were in when you were first starting out? Before you got as successful as you are today(assuming you're making enough money to live comfortably, which I really hope you are)?

I remember reading, briefly, on a thread you visited on 4chan's /ic/ board, your response to someone's statement that graphic design, or sitting in front of a computer screen and painting all day, was a really depressing job. You responded to that with something along the lines of "Not really man, I get paid really well now and I love my job!" But I'm reading this and it looks like that wasn't always the case. Is that true?

I'm trying to combine what I'm reading here with what you said in that thread so I can arrive at the conclusion "It wont be easy starting out but if you work hard and keep at it you'll succeed." What do you think?

Of course it's not always fun mate, you're sitting in front of a computer 12 hours a day for at least three to four years. How fun can that be? But is it worth it? Hell yeah

Totally can relate to it... it speaks my heart, well at least the fear deep down my heart....
Awesome drawing and staging though.. can't wait to read more and find out how she came through it.. or even better, knowing how u overcome it.. the state of depression,

"I am alive.......... but do i live?" that really speaks my mind now..

Anyway, I am happy that u got over it...
always a good thing to stay away from these negativity in life if they are not there following you (as in my case).. haha...
