Happy New Year! I hope everyone is having a great holiday!
As we enter a new year, a new Crazy Sunshine Chronicles begins! This is page one of six. Enjoy!
If you’re not too hungover, what did you get up to for new years? Leave a comment below!
All praise the cow’s deity!
it the best deity for beast people….i heard
oh i get it…
“You were my best friend”. In other words, “I’m sorry. But I must viciously destroy you”.
Poor Peppermint won’t know what hit her. Or will she?
Comments like this make me wish this comic updated more a week.
Also if you didn’t see my story, here you go. And I’m not trying to be a self absorbed prick.
Give me more time and you got yourself a daily comic. Alas 24 hours in a day sucks, damn reality!
Also fan works should be submitted by E-Mail, I’ve told you this before!
twice a week? just wishful thinking here.
Not unless I get fired from both my jobs, sorry.
Nothing like starting off the new year with a werewolf search and rescue mission.
You know it! No, where to start…
Dammit! Now I HAVE to fix my time machine!! I CAN’T STAND WAITING!!!! D’X
Also funny how it goes: Serious, cute, hot, Dafuuuuuuuu?!?!?!
This is probably my favourite page of CS so far. Spent a long time on it.
Does panel 2 have any significant meaning, or is it just an example of when Candy protected Peppermint?
It’s just an example to show even from a young age, Candy has always been there for Peppermint.
An excellent start to a new arc.
Time to get your friend back peppers!
Hmm and are the markings Paw’s or Beast tattoo’s?? Or maybe they appear at a certain time?
Candy and Peppers on dat third panel. @_@ Cute as fuck.
I wonder what made her relapse back to the beast,I know it wasn’t Lacie hopefully.
Beast mode candy may take Lacie’s spot for my favorite.<3 I freaking love strong and muscular female characters..it's not a fetish..I don't think.Google Bomango.It gotta be just right :3 <3
Nah, she always had them. If I ever make a book I will go back and redraw them in the old comics but I am too busy to do that now.
I hope you like her design too, I’ve had to change it over 10 times already.
I think she was wearing the gloves to hide them.
Her fingerless long gloves would cover the stripes but, not her digital pads. Then a again Candy main method of attack is punch she could simply keep her hand in a fist to hide them.
I can’t tell you how much I cheered up reading this page! I am chomping at the bit for more! So, like, update soon, so my teeth survive ^_^’
Yay glad I cheered you up~!
Dem backgrounds… you can really tell that a good amount of time and effort went into them. I especially like the first and second panel backgrounds. And if I’m not mistaken, isn’t that the moon Lacie destroyed?
I personally feel like you’ve balanced the level of detail really well. Enough that it enhances the comic, doesn’t detract from the main image/messsage in a panel, and (perhaps most important of all) doesn’t create needlessly exhausting work for you! I’ve heard it said from another artist that while putting in tons of little details is quite fun, the “return” for doing so just isn’t worth the time/effort.
I hate to nitpick because you’re doing so many things WELL and I don’t want to give the impression the comic has any major flaws. So I’d just like to ask about Candy’s hand in the first panel – what exactly is she doing with her arms? Are they being crossed, or is more of the hand-on-hip pose? Doesn’t affect the rest of the comic, but it just seemed a little off to me.
Oh, and Happy New Years to ya Jkun! Here’s hoping CS goes strong for another year!
Yep, that’s the moon! I put it there t show this is not an origins comic as quite a few people thought it was!
Personally I do not feel like my comic is detailed at all. I keep a lot of things simple, but, I try to ink them very neatly, which takes a long time.
As for Candy in panel 1, her left arm is hanging and her right hand is clutching onto her upper arm, her gloves go past her elbow, remember! See it now? If I moved her slightly upwards it would translate easier, but she fits into frame better down where she is.
Happy New Year to you too~
A comic, from tomorrow, today?! People told me Japan was way ahead of us, but wow!
Alright, bad joke aside, this comic seems like a prelude of hardship to come, judging from flashbacks with a sorrow-filled speech to boot presented here, can’t wait to see what happens next!
It sucks, being in the future. I always celebrate stuff alone and then 8-10 hours later the rest of the world joins in but by then I am already asleep.
It’s like being 80 years old.
I’m guessing Lacie actually helped keep Candy human(oid) by giving her an outlet, so she didn’t build up too much steam. Does that kinda fit?
That’s quite a good theory!
That’s actually less “theory” than “experience”. I used that idea already in writing my books. It’s a robot who annoys the were-girl and gets constantly pounded. She’s also protective of a kid, but there’s nobody in-house to protect her from. (No Lacie, for instance.)
MiniCandy is aborbs.^^ In a “touch her and i bite you something off that you wish i didnt!”-way. Mini Peppers too. Those marks on Candys skin are a nice detail by the way.
And that little brushie-brushie scene is also pretty heartwarming.
Im eager for the next page.^^
Thanks as always Ktaze! aborbs is the cutest word ever.
Isnt it?^^ Just discovered it for me a few weeks ago.
The pleasure is all mine good sir.
Whenever I see these dark bubbles, it makes me think some ‘being’ is reading out what these characters are thinking from some all knowing book.
but after a few hours I get tired and put it back on the shelf…
Haha, nah it’s either character thoughts/narration or Mochi. I think the only time I used it omnisciently was during the first 5 strips.
Nah, even then it turned out to be Peppers narrating for a video she was making.
The last part of the strip wants to make me listen to this:
Yesssssssss YouTube embedding works! I forgot I added this recently.
Also haha, nice. Candy the were-uh, beast?
Yeah. We could set up the Werehog and Candy together, uh? They would be perfect.
Hah! I have that game. it’s a really fun gimmick, the Were-hog thing. His voice gets a bit too silly instead of tough, though.
It gets awesome in the Japanese version. :I
Ok this is getting weird, everywhere I go I’m seeing Sonic in some form or other…
Especially here at CS, where a lot of people are Sonic fans!
Fun fact of the day, The Were in Werewolf definition means “Man”, With that said calling a Werewolf hybrid Sonic a Werehog, is basically calling Sonic a “Manhog.” Which would be Sonic turning into a human hedgehog hybrid, yeah just think about, I’ll give you a second.
I really like that third panel, I always like to see Candys motherly side, especially when it’s as calm as that.
Either-way, can’t wait for the next page! Looking awesome as always.
this is goin to be epic! I can’t wait for the next few weeks.
I never noticed she had stripes on her arms o.O
oh my god. that second panel is adorable and nothing short of a babey picture of Lacie AND Shelbie would surpase it.
Well Shelbie and Lacie didn’t know each other as kids so such a pic doesn’t exist.
That’s where the magic of Photoshop comes in.
No Candy! Don’t do it!! We love you! Don’t run away!! Who’ll smack Lacie if you’re not here!?!?
…but wait, wasn’t Candy a Human?
She’s filed as “Beast”.
I though that was a figure of speech ._.
the suspense is killing me now. And i love were this is going.
high five sensei.
“Shit just got real”
Oh yes it has, yes it has. I’m really eager to see how this will play out!
Candy’s a furry. :O this changes EVERYTHING????
it’s so …. BEAUTIFUL!!!! can’t wait for more. :3
Thanks!! Then I’ll do my best to keep pumping these out!
It’s nice to see an artist who not only has a strong interest in their own work, but doesn’t have a massive ego. You have the consideration to your fans to recognize them & not be a shrewd jerk, and I suppose I just wanted to mention that to you. It’s probably not a big deal, but It’s pretty damn hard to come by from my experiences. Also, love the title of this great strip one of my favorite movies.
Oh! Thanks! I et really flustered when someone brings this up and don’t know how to reply without sounding stupid.
Regarding the art, I always want to try and be better? I guess? Most of my conversation with eagle-eye DSong, for example, always end up with me justifying choices I made while drawing, or admitting to faults that I am too lazy to clean up. It’s nice people notice these! They really make me think before making the next strip, and hopefully make my art evolve!
As for the webcomic, a webcomic isn’t a webcomic without readers, which is why I respect everyone who does or doesn’t comment. I don’t treat them like “fans” – infact I don’t think I call them that, they are people just like me, and just like in reality, all I want to do is impress them by being the best I can be and no more.
Whoa, essay over! Also glad you noticed the title’s parody! I tend to do this a lot. D:
Aw man, why do werewolves always forget to undress before transforming?
To be fair, Candy’s pretty tough on gloves anyway, it’s her second pair.
Looks like Lacie’s going to get another bald head eventually LOL
Haha, this time from removing her hair with claws instead of a razor!
Holy merciful mother of crap! In just four little boxes you put me on the emotional roller coaster that seems to be putting us all on a hell of a trip for the foreseeable future of the comic. I usually count on this comic for humor and silly but this was unprecedented. Thank you for the future wild ride. I find this comic guilty of awesome in the first degree.
Aww, thank you! I guess that makes me guilty by proxy then, hoho. Glad you enjoyed the change of pace!
It’s a shame adult|Candy lost/grew out of that cute little fang.
For some reason I was expecting the alt text to read, “You were a distant second Shelbie… VERY distant.”
I see the moon’s still recovering from that “Moonbeam” thing. But that what makes the Surface cooler.
Wait, How old is candy supposed to be in the second panel? The bios say that Peppermint is 9 and a half, and Candy is 27, which means at minimum Candy is 18, if Peppermint is 6 months old there, which I doubt. Unless Candy ages slightly faster.
Who knows! Maybe you’ll have to wait until Peppermint and Candy’s past are uncovered!
I see beasts are like dogs in a way. So if a dog’s first year means it’s 7, so a beast would be that age too.
With that logic, when Peppermint was 6, Candy hadn’t even been born.
Also, instead of asking what’s up with the last panel I’ll just say “You wanna know my secret, I’M ALWAYS HAIRY”
My brain has now flipped around, went backwards and started speaking British after I started thinking more about this.
This is just an excuse to use your 5 min warm up of Candy in the actual comic isn’t it? Wait….Candy’s LEAVING…..-_-…..O.O NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
Nope. This has nothing to do with Candog.
What’s happenning ? Don’t tell she’s going away :’-(
Oh noes! If I tell you then there’s spoilers!
Called it. Candy is a beast.
Candy was always a beast…!
The Amazing Jkun, I know questions are reserved for Tumblr and stuff, but how does the normal human person like a Delivery Man deliver well stuff to Peppermint house since well on top a pillar of earth within a chasm fill wires and piping?
Flattery gets you nowhere!
There’s an elevator.
Huh, that makes a whole lot of sense. “The Amazing Jkun” was just a funny way to begin a sentence, and well calling you Amazing would be redundant, because we all know you’re Amazing Bro.
awww… I wonder how long she has to disappear for
At the rate this thing is updated – about a month! ;D
Interestingly, I was under the impression she was a human (or very similar) that was raised by beasts. Huge ones.
