March Entry: ResCUE (It's your Cue)
PostPosted: Sun Mar 30, 2008 3:07 am
Hey everyone, CK here! XD
Wellll, I wasn't originally going to enter this month, due to time restraints, school work ect... but last night it suddenly got an idea (XD 30 minutes after deadline) I think there was an extention sooo
I stayed up all night, (until 6 am) sketching out 7 pages... Then I woke up at 2 pm, and started inking. Finished inking around 5 pm, and started fine tuning it a bit more...
I decided to mostly traditional with this one XD because It would have taken me FOREVER on the computer
That's my process... XD And here's a bit about the story.
The theme for this month was "Fire" and I struggled all month thinking of an idea... fire? what?
But I remembered last night a story that I heard. About a man coming up on a burning car accident and pulling out the people inside.. He likened doing that, or not doing that... to what we do with people today in our world, both spiritually and physically.. Sometimes we just plaine DONT CARE!
I know I'm guilty of shrugging certain things off... like talking about God with someone, or not going to help them out...
And it's scary because what am I showing people who don't believe the way I do? That I don't care about them...that's what they see...
The is so much symbolism in this comic XD... so if you get confused just ask... It's not really logical, because seriously, if you saw a house burning most people would help...
but I guess with this comic, I'm going more toward the whole "not showing Christ's love" sorta approach..
EDIT: Forgot a suggestion..
Lets see, because by the time this contest could end, it will be close to finals and tests for a lot of people XD Sooo.. I'm going to say "Tests" it can be any sort of test, physical, mental, spiritual, and school... XD

Please forgive me for any laspe in great lines... XD I did this entire comic in less than 24 hours...(because I STILL have assignments due) XD
DISCLAIMER: There is a bit of tobacco content on this page... I for one don't believe smoking to be a sin... But I do view it as a horrible thing to start doing to your body. I do not support the act of smoking. But I do have quite a few people in my life who are amazing Christians and do smoke. I love these peopel dearly... so please don't say anything stupid about smoking. If you have your own opinion that's fine.
Descriptions about what I was going (as in the symbolism and things like that) for will be in spoiler tags ^_^
[spoiler]With this page. I was kinda showing how selfish we Christians can be. We constantly see the pain, and suffering our fellow man is going through... We can see it in the way our schools are, the way our friends are. And while I believe we aren't completely not trying.. I do believe that Christians can do A LOT better with showing Christ. It's a discomfort I think for us to jump out there...and I'm guilty of it too. So I'm not judging or anything. ^^;
But yeah...please, let's start paying attention! I know this situation is pretty exaggerated...but it's really whats going on, spiritually. (I believe anyway)[/spoiler]

XD I don't know what I was thinking with the Father's hair...it's not supposed to be Elvis I promise...
I just couldn't think of what to do with him.. XD and it was really late...
[spoiler]With this page, I was also trying to show a positive opposite to my last page. That yes, there are some Awesome Christians who do jump out of their comfort zone and leap into Action like Jesus Calls us to do. Yes, it can be uncomfortable... but with Jesus as our barrier (like the water here) it sure makes things a little more bearable.
Also, Jesus is our 911 operator, First Responce, Counserlor person XD.
(told you there was a lot of symbolism here) >_> [/spoiler]

[spoiler] I think with this particular page i was going for... something like How some people can't see or notice how much sin can damage their life... and they really can't see it until someone tries to help them...or talk to them. And sometimes those people don't like that.
And the person trying to help is left wondering "What did I do wrong?"[/spoiler]

[spoiler]With this page, I was trying to show that once someone realizes that hey, They do Need Christ, the want to share that with others. This is represented by the mother telling her son to come with her...and the son asking his father.
His Father, however, still doesn't see that there is a major problem. He can't see the fire, and doesn't believe that it's there. Like non-Christians who don't see a problem with their lives, and really just go on living the way they want to.
These type of people need extra care...not someone to force them into believing.[/spoiler]

[spoiler]With this page, I wanted to show that God does arrive to help us when we call and ask him. He won't let us down.
Also, when Adam (the main guy) looks back, with this, I tried to represent how we should continually pray for and check up on those who we come in contact with. Christian or not, we all need prayer...
But sometimes if we try to take matters into our own hands... things happen you know? We also need to rely on God in these situations. XD I know that if I rely on myself, I'll become "THAT" Christian that can be so excited to get someone to believe...that I just kinda go too far. (It's been a while, but I know that I have that tendancy.)[/spoiler]

[spoiler]Again, God is always on call, ready to come in after us, and Keep on Praying.[/spoiler]
Page Seven (last page)

( I hope it's okay that I posted descriptions about the pages XD I guess you guys might be annoyed by that)
But I like to explain how things are, and what things represent... I apologize if I ruined the story and stuff for you ^^; )
I hope you guys enjoyed it, and again, sorry if the quality isn't so great... I didn't have a lot of time... ^^;
Thanks for reading 83.

XD how about "Swift like a fox" XD I'll leave the cheetah name to you 83.
Well, I may have finished it in under 24 hours, but I do hope it doesn't feel rushed...or look that way. XD I think it does a little.
But It can't really be helped... I had to finish the comic FAST. XD I have so much to do for school in the next month...and I wanted to get something entered.
The idea came really fast too.. (like it hit me suddenly XD) so... I guess I wanted to get it done right away.
XD thanks so much Aileen! 83

Haha, yeah I've gotten about 10 hours of sleep in the past two days. Not bad...but It could be better XD.
Thank you! ^_^

That was really good! I love symbolic stories, and appreciated the notes you gave. I probably wouldn't have picked up on them otherwise. True, your drawing looked perhaps a little rushed, but I think it's pretty good for 24 hours
Here's hoping you'll get the idea sooner next time, eh?
I really enjoyed reading this; you did a good job! ^_^

Wow thanks so much for the reply ^_^ I'm glad you liked it! 83.
Yeah I realize that...i'm so sorry about the rushing... I really wish I could have spent more time on it...but....
I have school work, art to work on, and my own webcomic to update... So yeah things had to go fast for me.
I'm glad that I can see what I can do in 24 hours though.
