This is a digital comic, that fully 'explains' the meaning behind my painting 'Anemone on the Shore'.

I'd long been wanting to explore this medium of expression ever since I read about digital comics from this awesome deviant [link] and realised what a potential they had for expression, that I had yet untapped when thinking of the comic presented online in normal 'book' format.

This is my first experiment. I wanted my first one to be meaningful. It was fun to do, although labour intensive.. (took me around 3 weeks to get it all done!)

I am looking forward to creating more of these.

She by =meluseena presents a very touching story a lot of artists can relate to. Besides the illustrations are gorgeous and the interactive panels make it a delight to the reader. ( Suggested by Rosengeist and Featured by Thiefoworld )
Awww.. The art is so beautiful!
Y'know what? I see Inspiration as a "she", too. I thought I was the only one!

This is a lovely comic. The flashes of light and colour (that flower! :D ) against the largely muted colour scheme work so well with the message you're conveying in the story.

:iconla-plz: This is a wonderful comic. I hope to create something this nice one day.
Beautiful! I really love the art and the thoughtfulness of the words. Bravo.

That's awfully sophisticated for a first experiment in the medium. You're a talented creature Lisa Falzon.

"...bones of an idea." Yeah, like ships and cars rather than people and cats the bones come first, and sometimes the skin. And they're definitely a collection of some of the day's flotsam. I often just wait for her too, but I'm beginning to think that is, for me, a bad habit.

I particularly like the contrast between the world owing you a home and a living, and the worthwhileness of being human. Such radically different outlooks in the same person dependent upon expression.

Very cool. (oh, and the color palette and tone are awesome.)

Wow. Very nice. Not only in artwork but also with the story. Well done.

Love. Simply love.
I hope you don't mind, but I featured this poem in one of my journals here: [link]

If that's not okay with you, just let me know and I'll take it down. Thanks! :)
