GIRL IRL #1

Posted February 10th, 2011 by Miss Mediocre

Hello Readers,

I mentioned on Twitter the other day that I had been working on something special for the blog that it would either be awesome or awful. This is that something! I figured since I haven’t been in game as much as before and therefore have had less to write about that maybe I could use some of my extra non-gaming time to create a mini comic series. I have two finished so far, this one and one other. I’ll post them and see what kinds of comments I get, and if you you guys enjoy them I’ll keep making them! Girl IRL stands for Girl In Real Life of course and the comic will be about a girl who plays lots of WoW who relates everything in her real life back to gaming. My second one is better, but I’m saving that one for next week, lol. I hope you enjoy, but if you do hate them you can let me know (politely, lol) and I’ll stop posting them!

Thanks!
MM <3

    fugly – go read a book

    yeahok : Not quite polite, but I appreciate you sharing your opinion nonetheless. I wasn’t quite going for a beautiful piece of artwork, more a quick silly thing, but I certainly wasn’t going for fugly. I do read books and the next comic is actually about Romeo and Juliet, so perhaps you will enjoy it more.

    I like it! I’m sure as it develops, there will be stuff like this that will touch anyone who plays WoW regularly. We already have some running jokes in our guild about “solo’ing Tesco’s” (weekly grocery shop for those who don’t know Tesco’s!) & “doing the cooking daily” so maybe next time I’m in my garden sorting out the mess, I can tell hubbs that I’m levelling my herbalism too :D

    Nevyn : Ty! :D That’s the kind of thing that gave me the idea (I love the idea of soloing a grocery store btw, haha). I’m always making jokes about WoW stuff IRL even though sometimes my company at the time has no idea what I’m talking about, which makes it all the more humorous for me. I figured lots of players probably do the same thing! Thanks for leaving me a comment to say you liked it! :D

    I think it’s awesome. I love the humor of it and the art work is alot better than anything I could do myself. I look forward to seeing more of these.

    Aliciana : Thanks so much! :) The next one is finished (and much better than this one I think, lol) so I will post it within the next few days!

    I’ll stick with Herbalism in WoW. When I try it in real life my inherited “Black Thumb of Death” works its magic and I spend too many real dollars replacing what I quickly kill…

    I was on skype at the time the original convo started, we had about 30 mins of hysterical laughter, talking about which alt to take, which flasks/buff foods etc or how many frost emblems I’d get for taking out the frozen food aisle or the hot food counter!

    Did you see the wowinsider article about a cooking recipe recently? I managed to find a link, now can I link it properly for you? hmmm Banana Bread Fingers crossed that works :)

    This made me chuckle. The artwork does have a lot of room to improve, but the more you do, the better it will become. I look forward to seeing more of these.

    Funny related story. My 4 year old daughter loves to sit beside me and watch me heal as my guild kills things :) and one day she came up to watch and it was before a raid and I was farming herbs to make pots she asked me “what ya doin” I said flying around picking all the lovely flowers to make potions so my guild mates were stonger. She was like COOOLLLLLL. And a Frost Lotus popped up and she asked what was that. So explained it to her. This past november she brings me a flier from the local green house and says” Momma snow is on the grown is it time to plant some Frost Lotus?” I started laughing like crazy and this little comic made me remember that. Keep them coming.

    I think it’s great! As far as I’m concerned if your artwork and words communicate your point effectively (which they are doing) then they’re perfect! How long did it take?

  12. Miss Mediocre

    Tristan Phillips : I have a similar problem with herbalism IRL, lol.

  13. Miss Mediocre

    Nevyn : Lol, that Banana Bread raid recipe is amazing! :D So funny, hehe. Thanks for the link!

  14. Miss Mediocre

    GunbladeKnight : Hehe, yes I’m better at drawing on paper with pencils, but I figured my noobish photoshopping was probably more comicesque! I did put a bit more time into the next one though! ^ ^

  15. Miss Mediocre

    Airheart : Hehe, that’s awesome and adorable! :D

  16. Miss Mediocre

    Shellicus : Thank you :) It only took about 20 minutes or so for this one, but the other one I’d been working on took about 5 hours! There’s a lot more to it, lol.
