Luau and Iron Strike - Part 10 (fin) by Nimaru Luau and Iron Strike - Part 10 (fin) by Nimaru


I bet you all thought there was going to be some sort of epic story of Iron Strike realizing his mistake and going after Luau and such... pfft. First that would have been entirely too predictable and second, it wouldn't have been very Luau-like.

And to think I had delusions of being able to finish this LAST week. It took so much time to get the expressions right and try to represent everything that is going on here. I hope it all makes sense. There's a lot of imagry and metaphor going on here as I try to express the lingering doubts and self-worth issues Iron Strike is suffering from due to his Father and past girls he was interested in (but had no chance with).

This is based on personal experience to a degree and also represents many other people I'm sure. Let me say this, friends: if anything is to keep you from being happy in this world, don't let it be you.

P.S. If I haven't named him before, I decided to call Iron Strike's dad Landslide.

You know what's kinda bad but nice at the same time?

When you don't check your deviant watches for a good long while and you miss a lot of cool stuff.
That's bad.

When you get to read somebody's awesome work from start to finish with no waiting.
That's pretty good.

This was great Nimaru, I applaud you.

:) Yes, I agree it's more fun to find someone after they havea  huge body of completed work. Sorry i don't have as much new stuff yet.

I'm glad. It's one of my favorite comic sets that I've done.

So,only to confirm,you are still going to make a comic with Iron Strike's father?(I am not rushing you its just that LuauxIronStrike is my favorite couple and I am anxious for this comic)

I want to, but who can say? I've been super busy building a new web business, but hopefully after that I can do more art things.

You know, I came across this again recently, and I think it is one of the most artfully told segments you have done.  Also, I just realized you never followed up on Iron Strike's father coming home - and how he's going to feel about Luau! :)

Yes, that terrible time limitation... It's a killer.
