“Here we... here we... here we flipping go!!!”
Just jumping right in and doing it, ComicFury make this whole process so laughably easy compared to making your own website (I once tried to make a portfolio website to host a webcomic - it did not go well), so I bet there's something I missed in the boilerplate about them getting all the rights to the comics I publish here or something, but I dare say if I'm ever wrangling with ComicFury's shadowy financiers over million-dollar movie rights to my work, it will be one of these "good problems" I keep hearing about and not just the regular problems people like me have now, like staying sane when you can't go outdoors because of THE DEATH VIRUS. Maybe that's why I decided to publish a fun romp about primitives crossing a desert expanse - relive the experience of wide open spaces, you know?

My name is Brigonos Mac Giolla Chomhgaill and I am an amateur illustrator with a lifelong love of the comic form. If you don't want to go look up a phonetic guide to the Gaelic language, don't worry about pronouncing that alphabet soup of a handle, everyone just calls me "Bryan". This is my first webcomic for which I bear sole responsibility, it is called NORTH, and for now it is about some cavemen crossing a desert. They are pretty loose character designs because I wanted to avoid pinning down the strip to any specific time, place or culture going in, but also I was very much learning some things as I went along when I was drawing this. They would be much more detailed character designs now, but the comic, for better or worse, is what it is.
So why a comic about cavemen? I didn't cynically seek to exploit a gap in the market or anything - I must confess I haven't even done a search to see if there are other cavemen comics on CF, but statistically I'm sure there must be a few - I just had the story ready to go and at 90-odd pages, I've got a few months to see how it pans out before I decide whether or not to run any more.
My main goal is learn how to webcomic as I go, and I'm not kidding when I say I literally just discovered ComicFury like four days ago and now I'm doing this, but I can at least say for sure that it'll be daily updates for the foreseeable future, a thrice-weekly schedule somewhere down the line, and the current story will definitely be completed. Beyond that, it's all a learning experience in this new year that everyone keeps trying to jinx by saying "it can't be as bad as last year!" like we learned absolutely nothing from 2016. Yes I can remember as far back as 2016. I am that old.

Anyways: Happy New Year! I hope you'll join me on this, my magical journey of webcomic-making discovery.

Ok, I’m on board.

I was just trying to draw attention to the North star here for Themes reasons, but I seem to have accidentally drawn a lens flare.

Oh lovely artwork, I'm always psyched for prehistoric adventures!

I found a quick and easy way to add texture to flat colours without obsessing over every single manual brush stroke - just add a layer set to multiply with some texture on it and reduce the opacity a bit - and while it isn't a perfect solution in all instances (I really should have worked a little more on the light on this page), it does the job.

I am very much into your compositions and colouring choices.

All I will say is that most things are improved by adding cat.
