Waga Aibo Death-kun by JohnSu Waga Aibo Death-kun by JohnSu
我相棒デスくん ("My Partner Death-kun)

When Madison Grail was killed by a particle accelerator through the head, she thought "KLAXBCLAILOEJAFK" and crumpled to the ground.

But when Death came to reap her soul, his leg got tangled in her particle accelerated hair on the way out, and he falled on the floor, breaking his USB Flash Drive of Souls. Chaos ensued. Many things (but not all; only a fool keeps everything on a single flash drive) that should have been dead were suddenly not, like dinosaurs and chivalry. This, of course, included Madison. Does it make sense that even though the body is dead/gone, something can come back to life if its soul is freed? No. Shut up.

So Madison was excited to be alive again, but Death was not. In a fit of irresponsibility, he blamed her for the current situation and demanded she correct everything and make all the dead stuff dead again. And she's like "how" and Death was all "ASLFKADOVJEOIF" and gave her a black lumpy egg which hatches into DEATH-KUN which is basically just a dumpy offshoot of himself to assist her in doing this stuff. And then big Death fled the scene.

EVERYTHING IS GOOD


Death-kun's design is inspired by a dream I had while staying in a hotel. It also kind of looked like a Blue Gorilla for a while, so I hastily moved some stuff around on the skull face. Also he ended up looking somewhat like a large Death-themed chicken. Or a Pokemon. A dinosaur-killing Pokemon.

Background took the longest time. It was not very fun. I think next time I should find a city background that looks fun to draw, and then draw it to have fun. Also the vanishing points are inconsistent. arrrgh

Gonna give lineless art another shot after this. So far I think thin lines look better than thick/no lines, but I am also curious to see if I can improve on my lineless technique a bit more.

How do you come up with all these awesome ideas and stories? I'm pretty sure each of these could sustain a strong series on its own, or at least a graphic novel~

I'm very jelli.

Only one question remains... how did chivalry die the first time? And shouldn't have death backed up all the souls on another flash drive so he didn't lose them?

I cannot stop lauging at this statement, even though it is at least a minute or two later than when I first read it. And Death so totally needs a USB Flash Drive of Souls. Obviously he is trying to keep up to date with the 21st century.

Indeed, and with this economy, it's probably the only way he can even hope to keep his job without the home office assigning him a lot of annoying interns from the temp agency. They never get the job done right, and things like this would probably be happening every Wednesday.

Flash Drive of Souls? I wonder how much such a thing would cost.
I learned the hard way (twice!) to never, ever store everything on just one flash drive. But did I learn from the fist time?! NOOooo...
