Not representative of exactly what happened

When I tell people that The Ravages of Time is a HK comic loosely based off the Romance of Three Kingdoms I use ‘loosely’ as in ‘I am sure the historical Guo Jia was not this devastatingly beautiful’
ETA I mean Chen Mou’s design of Guo Jia is devastatingly beautiful sob
I am sorry for not posting much art lately here is some Guo Jia spam. The first is uhh a Guo Jia and Jia Xu story I want to do at some point in my life (sorry wenhe you are to me forever an ossan).The second is just blatant Ravages of Time fanart and please excuse my horrible calligraphy..
I really want to send a respectful fan letter to Chen Mou but I’ll have to write it in English since I don’t think he would react well to “ni de Guo Jia hen piao liang” and that is all the Mandarin I know
In other news Jia Xu has extremely beautiful hair in the newer chapters (when did you have the time to rebond in the middle of a battle???) and I hope Guo Jia gets to slap Sima Yi at least once before he dies

The official DW7XL site updated today with “a new promotional movie” (Koeiese for “2 minutes of fantrolling in HD”). There is a nice scene of Wang Yi fighting the two Mas, and Cao Cao using his cloak to summon Guo Jia, who then proceeds to look like David Bowie. Apparently always a useful skill
* Don’t believe it
Pages 1-4 of a story not really about tea (tea culture was important during the Sengoku period, not so much in the Three Kingdoms so I guess Guo Jia just picked it up from some Tang officer passing through)
Despite the tags this is actually a serious comic, aside from food and games I do think a lot about death and life and the meanings of both. I spend a lot of time doing things alone (by choice and not) and this used to be dangerous when I got stuck at ‘in the long run all our efforts are absolutely futile’. (I tried to write more about how I got out of that loop but it got long and I have to work.. Anyway all my feelings wrt accepting the futility/absurdity of life and carrying on will end up in some comic somewhere / have already been much more eloquently expressed by Albert Camus)
