Hi. So, I'm the author of Soul to Call, and I noticed you put my banner on your links page. First of all, I've been following dream*scar since at least 2011, and I really admired you as a webcomic artist. I must admit that one of my webcomic goals was to one day have you notice my comic. So yeah. I've been bouncing since you left that comment on page 56. I AM JUST REALLY FREAKING EXCITED. SO HAPPY YOU'RE ENJOYING SOUL TO CALL. THANK YOU FOR THE NICE THINGS YOU PUT IN THE FLAVOUR TEXT. THANK YOU!
FOR REAL THO I WISH YOU’D SPOKEN UP ABOUT IT IN MY COMMENTS SECTION [yes i recognized you lmao] cos ffff it’s so guuuud and I could have been reading it much sooner ahfgsdhfs
I guess if given the chance to explore all the genres, what would all their favourite kind of tunes be
Aw ye music asks, my favourite
Avril’d be a fan of punk rock, rap, and house. Stuff like Rise Against, Kanye West, and Daft Punk. She’d love listening to tunes while practicing parkour. Pop in those headphones and sink into her own little world of music and gravity.
Eli’s tastes would vary so much. He’d be a “I listen to what I like” kind of person, never sticking to particular band or genre. I do see him fond of acoustic, alternative rock, chillout and by extension, some electronica. There’s probably a good bit of Coldplay and Owl City on his iPod. Not to mention a lot of indie stuff.
James likes himself some rock. Hard rock mainly. I’ve always seen his favourite song being “Don’t Fear the Reaper” by Blue Oyster Cult.
Tifffany would like R&B, good old Pop, C-pop, and anime themes. Probably a few nostalgic boyband songs in her collection too. Ke$ha, Lady Gaga, Rihanna, Beyonce would be main players of her collections, and she’s not embarrassed to admit it.
Haha you say that as if any of them sleep at all "I’ll sleep when I’m dead" that can be arranged
Avril sleeps on her stomach when possible, usually kicking off her blankets in the process because she’s restless. Doesn’t much care for blankets in fact, prefers to sleep wearing her blanket, aka a thick hoodie. No routine to sleep, just have a drink and collapse somewhere safe-ish when you get tired enough. She sleeps most when freight hopping, can stay on the move while asleep, aw yeah.
When Eli sleeps, which is rare, he sleeps all curled up on his side. Wrapped up in blankets like a cocoon. Protecting himself. His sleep ritual usually includes reading, praying, actively avoiding sleep, or doing some other activity until his eyes refuse to stay open no matter what he tries Eli doesn’t like sleeping.
Does James sleep? Sometimes it doesn’t seem so. Sure, he’s been caught napping with one eye open, but actual 100% sleep? HMMM. James sleeps like a plank when given the chance. Barely moves as he sleeps. Otherwise, you can usually find him sitting in the corner with a bowed head that lifts when you approach.
Tiffany lays on her side, hugging her blanket as she sleep… blanket or lover, it depends what happened before she went to sleep. It’s probably better if we let her keep her falling asleep ritual private.
This isn't on that list, but do any of your characters collect things from places? Like salt/pepper shakers or even bits of wallpaper?
Presently Avril has to travel light, but she can’t help but collect maps. Even if she’s not in the area anymore, she’s fond of a nice map, so she’ll keep it. But back in the day, she would collect abandoned stuffed animals, giving them a new home in her nest. She also collected button pins back then, a couple of which can still be seen on her backpack.
Eli collects playing cards. He has a deck of mismatched cards from all over the place, and he’s made up random games with them. He’d collect books, but… they’re hard to pack around everywhere.
James loots collects bullets, lol.
Aside from information, Tiffany collects notebooks. She’s a sucker for new designs and patterns and just… notebooks in general. She wants them all.
I've been meaning to ask something about StC that I'm pretty sure you can answer. First, I can't remember if this was already said, but is there a name for the end of the world thing that took place? I was also wondering how long ago from when this story takes place did said end of the world thing happen? Based on questions you've answered and pictures you've put up I'd guess around the birth of Avril/Eli's generation but I really wanted to hear what you had in mind. Thanks, love StC!
Sure thing! The ‘end of the world event’ is generally called “the Fall”
The Fall occurred around 15 years before the start of StC. Avril was 5 and Eli was 3 when it happened.
Omg I love your story. What really pulled me in was your coloring. Can you perhaps do a tutorial of some sort?
Thank you very much! I’m glad you’re enjoying it.
I suppose I could! I had been thinking about putting together a little something that details my process of making a page, but that would take a lot of time. A colouring tutorial would take a significantly less amount of time so that is more likely. I’ll see how much things go!
I want to do BAD END illustrations for StC Wherein if things had been slightly different… some absolute horror would befall the character. Like when you make a mistake in Corpse Party. Just so many scenes seem like if something had been done a little different it would have been a lot worse. Like Avril breaking into that tower later than she did and finding and unpleasant hanging surprise inside. or if Avril didn`t grab Eli in the latest page
you can totally kill me on a comic page, especially if it’s in a particularly horrifying manner ;D ohgodthatwascreepy
HEHEH Sweeeeet. You got any self portrait/photo I could use for reference? (or just describe yourself, it’s all cool) If you have a picture you can go ahead and submit it on my personal blog if you like. No pressure or rush, just letting you know the best option I have currently~
I want to start collecting redshirt faces for StC but I don’t know what the best method would be in the long run…
But hey, if you want to be killed in StC (or an oc of yours) hit me up with a picture of you/r oc! I’ll be making a special webpage on the site to credit the donated redshirts when they start dropping!
PS. it should be noted that If you send me an oc you agree to give me artistic liberty to adjust designs. I don’t mind if you give me a character with pink hair, as long as you’re cool with me changing it to brown to fit the setting. Clothes with also be changed to suit the setting.
Aw man there are so many it’s hard to list them all, but here are a few!
Mister Deja Vu (Get Backers ED3) - Naja Last Night, Goodnight - Miku Hatsune Cotton Candy - Bonnie Pink Rimless - IKU Re-sublimity - Kotoko Passion - Utada Hikaru Tsuki - Amano Tsukiko Another - Do As Infinity Plus everything I have by Rurutia, she was one of my all-time favourites back in the day.
I thought you might find this funny. When I first started reading Soul to Call I was looking through your (totally fabulous) art. When I first read some of your stuff I read Eli, for whatever reason, as if it were the name Ellie. It wasn't until I saw those wanted poster with everyone's full names that I realized that I was saying Ellie not Eli. I still have trouble remembering and a lot of times still call him Eli, though I'm getting better. Love Soul to Call/You!
Pffft oh no, that is funny. It reminds me of this time I read an entire novel pronouncing Malachi Mala-Chee.
Fun fact though, I made genderbends of my main characters a year ago, and Eli’s female name WAS Ellie, so… there’s that.
Thank you so much! I’m so glad you’re enjoying StC!
