The Tourist by SmellsLikeBeer The Tourist by SmellsLikeBeer
Yeah, so, I wanted to show you something not related to ponies, since it's what I mostly do, draw something not related to ponies I mean. And I wanted to show you what kind of other works I do. You know, that I'm not just a fan artist.
So this is a short four page comic, the most recent work of mine. It was supposed to be a longer story, but I don't have the time nor the patience for a bigger project right now. And besides I like to draw these really short ones.
Would have been kinda nice also without the text, but then the point would have been missing. I usually avoid using any text in my comics, but whatever

The second part: [link]

Daily Deviation

Given 2012-12-01
The Tourist by *SmellsLikeBeer is filled with intense emotions and a solid framework in the story with detailed and amazing art style that match this short comic strip so well. ( Suggested by KeinZantezuken and Featured by jcroxas )

Excellent stuff. Certainly has got me opening your gallery to see what else is in there.

I only have one criticism: the font isn't right. It would look so much better with handwritten text. Writing by hand you can put in just a little more feeling, a little more atmosphere - make the narration part of the artwork, rather than looking like it's been pasted on top...

after reading the description, I feel the need to put out a simple whim: please draw more like this. people this talented shouldn't (excuse word choice) waste their time on ponies.

I am somewhat disappointed it was about some post-apoc scenario in the end, and it not continuing about the theme of lonelyness.

This is absolutely epic. I'm surprised he hasn't used that gun on himself by now... I'd do that, if there was no one else to fight for... There'd be no point anymore... Also, ZOMBIEZ!!!! :iconzombienomplz:

Nice! Great job on capturing the emotion and atmosphere the character and situation. I thought at first it was only a small monologue about life in general but it hints at something much more as the comic goes on. What a tease! I really dig the shading style here as well and, well just the style in general really. Congrats on the DD as well. Awesome! :clap:

Without the text I would not understand the point of it at all nor would it make any impact~ If you ask me, you're very good with text and you should keep it when necessary~ Great job tho~!! ^^

it doesnt sense whit the purpose of letting you wonder just what the hell is going on.

smoking is a sign of being under stress, there are worse ways to deal whit stress than just smoking.

adults are "weird" because their lifes are shit compared to the life of a kid, that said, enjoy your youngness you will start to sufer sooner than you think.
(that, if you are young at all)

I was thinking maybe the blood thirsty monsters he mentioned were the ponies, until I read the details below. Now it's obvious that it's Sesame Street.
