Darkstar-001's Profile Picture
United States
I'm a guy who does Walfas. I don't want to repeat everything from my intro comic here, so if you want those details, I guess you could look there. My actual drawing skills are pretty terrible, and I don't see them improving much, so don't expect to see that here.

I do a lot of 4Komas and short comedy works, but I hope to eventually create something deeper and longer. Until then, I can only hope to slowly improve my skills until I'm capable of pulling it off.

I'm really shy in person, but on here it's fine, so if you want to contact me for whatever reason, feel free to send me a note, or whatever.

There's really no point in cluttering the comments with thanks for llamas or favorites, so please don't do it. This hasn't been a problem yet, but I'm just saying it pre-emptively.

I have a Youtube channel, but there isn't much there yet. I hope to eventually add some Walfas animations.


I made Parsee's theme in 8-bit:

It even shows up on the first page of search results, since basically no one has done this. I don't know how good it is, but I tried my best.

Journal History

Has it really been a month already? I feel like I just got here! And it is apparently 32 days, since January 1-31 would be 31 days, so from Jan 24-Feb 24 is 32 days. I think...

*stretches out legs* That's better; there's plenty of space here. Writing too many 4Komas can start to get claustrophobic. Don't get me wrong; I do like making them, but I eventually want to make some longer works as well. I'll be doing a journal entry about that one a bit later.

When I first came here, I had literally never made a Walfas comic before. I had played around in create.swf for a while, but never actually finished anything. Part of me never expected to get this far. I mean, to get here at all, let alone to continue regularly producing content after a month, though if I had a life outside of my laptop, I might not post as much. I haven't really posted any creative works anywhere before this, so making stuff that people actually read is still kind of new to me. I hope to continue improving and refining my work as much as I reasonably can. I'm not sure how many things I'm actually any good at, but Walfas is one thing that I seem to have a solid foundation in, which I can hopefully grow.

So if I've been here a month, what exactly have I done in that time? Let's see...
I've posted 21 deviations, with 19 of them being Walfas. Of those Walfas, 11 were 4Komas, and an additional 3 of them were under 9 panels. All of my comics over 9 panels were related to some ongoing theme, such, Intro Comic, Touhou Life Meme, Valentines Day, and WSW contest #18. So... not a whole lot of continuity there. But that's something to talk about in the next entry.

What I haven't done is get very involved in the community at large. Or at least I don't think I have. I have left comments on several things, and entered the stock prop contest, but I still feel like I'm missing something. In the comment section of my intro comic, I was advised to join the chat. I eventually did so, but I couldn't really get myself to stick anywhere. With 80+ people frequently online, the WSW Discord is a big place, and I am quite terrible at mingling in large crowds. Yes, there are several subrooms, so maybe you get six or seven people in a room at one time. Sometimes I can get into a conversation, and it works out well at the time, but coming out of it I still don't feel like I've actually made any lasting connections . If anyone has any advice for making friends (if not on Discord, then in some other place), feel free to share.

On that note, since I would prefer to be an actual person, rather than a robot who churns out Walfas funnies every once in a while, I will be doing a Q & A comic and hopefully not regret it. I wasn't really sure what information to share here, so I'll let you all decide. Leave whatever questions you want to ask in the comments below, and I'll pick several to answer. I can't guarantee that I'll answer all of them, especially if there are a lot. I don't want the comic to be so long that I have to split it into multiple parts, so maybe ~30 panels max? There's no strict timeline on when this will be finished; I'll just do it once I have enough questions, however long that takes.

Do I need a concluding paragraph here? Because I have nothing. See ya later.

Greetings, my fellow walfaser! 
I seem to have noticed a huge comparison with our usernames, have we not? Hahaha! 'Tis all just coincidence, of course!
