TUV 40 - The Red Stuff by Kat-Nicholson TUV 40 - The Red Stuff by Kat-Nicholson
:star: PLEASE READ :3 :star:
Hey guys! So I made it to 40 strips! - That's thanks to all of you, The Ugly Vampire started out as a silly little joke that I never dreamed would progress further than a 1-off comic, but your support and encouragement has made it become so much more than that! In FACT: The Ugly Vampire is very soon going to be collected into a printed book, AND a cartoon!! Please check this journal entry for more details: [link]
Because I'm up to my little-pointy-vampire-ears with pulling together the book and such, this will be the last strip I post for a while, until after the launch. - I will be making a couple more strips within that time, but they'll be print exclusives which will only be available in the printed comic, and wont be posted anywhere online... but worry not, as when the website goes live, anyone who'd like a signed and sketched copy of the comic strips in print will be able to order one! ^_^

So anyways, I had the idea for this strip a little while back since I've indulged in far too much mulled wine over Christmas and new years.. in fact we still have a sachet left... :innocent: Might have to celebrate with that after the launch! :excited:
NB: Remember to enjoy your mulled wine responsibly folks! ;)

Drawn on iPad using Sketchbook Pro.

Oh, Nerk, I never doubted you! Leave it to Mort to find the best indulgences.
I've never actually had mulled wine before; it sounds very tasty though.

Congratulations on all your success, Kat! :heart:

oooh you must try mulled wine if U ever get the chance! I can't drink wine usually but mulled wine is so sweet and spiced and warming and yummy!! :love:

Thanks hun, although I'm not sure I've had any yet!! ... I'm just working very hard to try to ensure it all is a sucess!! There's a lot riding on it so I hope I can pull it off `:]

It's definitely something I will try! I'm quite picky when it comes to wines but I adore sweet and spiced flavours so I imagine that I'll down my glass quickly.

And I'm sure you can pull it off! Best of luck to you anyhow; I hope everything sets off without a hitch.

Ta v muchly. I've been wanting to do something around the idea of Herne the Hunter - something very organic with leaves, celtic markings and antlers etc etc. So I started sketching out a face but then the whole Herne thing went out the window in favour of what you've seen. Since the update to Procreate I've been struggling to get my brushes how I want them. Probs one reason why I've not been drawing much. I actually came across some old ink drawings I did about 15 to 20 years ago which I plan to scan in and then do the colouring with Procreate. Watch this space. Good to hear your work is keeping you busy but work can often get in the way of the fun stuff though. Sandra feeling a bit more human today. I have a few days off at the end if the week as it's mid term hols here so fun with Louis planned hopefully. Speak soon. Dx

herne the hunter.. is that celtic mythology? it sounds cool :)
Enjoy your time off dude, and I hope you get Ur brushes working how U want them soon.. maybe the procreate guys can help? (they're very friendly!)

Might do that babe. Herne is from English folklore (a ghost I think) but he featured in an 80's show called Robin of Sherwood and I remember him having more of a Celtic feel to him. Google him. You having a good week?
