WtH: 9 by real-faker WtH: 9 by real-faker



It's been so long. Maybe not much longer than it normally takes for me to make a page but it feels like an eternity. I'd just like to say that on behalf of this page, I AM SORRY. Sorry for SUCKING SO MUCH.
rGHGHG. I seriously think I'm going to start inking these traditionally and scanning them in. When I ink it in photoshop it just feels like it's completely taking away whatever life or movement or structure was there. I know that sounds stupid, but whatever. XD I don't have as much control over the stylus as I'd like.


Soon there will be no backgrounds at all. IT'S A TRANSITION GUYYYSS.

Anyway, yeah.
Mephi runs a very stressful line of work. The only thing keeping him sane is the witty banter he has with himself in his head, which is probably where all those fantastic puns come from. He has a nice little book collection too. I can't think of enough books to populate a whole shelf, but if you fullview/download the thing, there's a few titles that can be made out. Hell's computers are also running on DOS, if you look closely.
But you probably shouldn't look that close. This file will crash your computer (SERIOUSLY. It just crashed my macbook. My macbook NEVER crashes). I had to resize it because it was TOO BIG FOR DEVIANTART.
Why do I make such high res images…? My art is totally sloppy. WHYYYY.

So… uh. Yes.

Sock doesn't get much screen/talk-time in this page because Mephi's such a chatterbox.

I have to make a definitive decision on the quality and style of this thing, I swear. I set my standards far higher than I'm willing to even attempt.

This is what descriptions are for, guys. Wallowing in our own crapulence and begging for forgiveness. XD Hahaha.


OH! WAIT! One more thing.
Towards the end there, Mephi slips back into narrator mode. My panel structure is totally obliterated by then so I'm not sure how obvious it is. I don't think he'll do that often. Obviously he can't CONTROL the story. He'd like to think he can though.

I love your art style.

Hello :) 

I have a question, are you the author of the original animation? (I mean, are you Erika?) because I want to know if this story is original or is a fanmade story. I had the doubt because I think the drawing style is slightly different from what I remember of the animation n.n

Interesting. Something tells me that Mephistopheles is going to pull some dirty trick eventually in some sort of backstabber sort of way.

So do you have a background that explains that about Sock? Or is it a mystery to you as well?
Bibbledoo Featured By Owner Sep 20, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
If that's his name, then why call him Sock? Can you explain please?
Flowtail Featured By Owner Oct 24, 2013
Aw, it's too bad you don't have that super-long shot of the file cabinet in here. It really helped me grasp that this was actually hell in the film, since there really isn't much else here to suggest it's a divine place other than Memphasiswhatshisname leaning on the forth wall.
TheSoggyHedgehog Featured By Owner Jan 8, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
This is absolutely HILARIOUS! Great work, very well done, I can't wait to see more!
Crazy120 Featured By Owner Jul 10, 2012
"That'd just be poor storytelling." I'm really enjoying this comic and I'm okay with the background not having much there. I get distracted easily and I feel an intricate background would throw me off. ...But maybe that's just me. Anyway, I can't wait to see what happens next.
xX-Rebecctjj-Xx Featured By Owner Oct 22, 2011
I just accidentally bumped into your comic, and I must say I really like it, especially the sense of humor you have. It kinda reminds me of the book the wish list by eoin colfer, you should read it! I bet you'll like it :) Anyway, keep up the good work ^^ *watches you veeeeerryy closely from now on * ;)
KiRAWRa Featured By Owner Oct 13, 2011
Ok so far I've been doing pretty good keeping the giggles to myself, but the "hang in there" poster just outright killed me. It seemed out of place at first, but it makes a lot of sense that the devil would have the most annoying and overused pictures on his walls XD
This has honestly got to be one of the best comics I've ever read. Your style is absolutely charming and the fact that things as gruesome as death, murder, and hell are handled so lightheartedly just makes for an intriguing story ♥
real-faker Featured By Owner Jan 8, 2013  Student Filmographer
(Wow, late reply is late! Sorry!)

Thank you! I don't quite know why, I just thought it'd be really funny to have a bunch of dumb motivational posters and junk in his office. I'm not sure if he put them there to be funny or if he actually did it unironically... Hell's a stressfull business to run!

Anyway, I'm glad you like it! Thanks!

(does not read artist description first) the answer to the question was on the cover of his file!! I mean who wouldnt become a serail killer with a name like Napoleon Maxwell Sowachowski?
Faiya-chan Featured By Owner Oct 12, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
I'm hearing Genie from Aladdin and a bit of Cat in the Hat kids cartoon version. Oh, and maybe that wardrobe from Beauty and the Beast. :XD: (talking about Mephi here) And I seem to hear Sock as a little bit mature/deeper Timmy Turner voice. :P

Anyways, I really like who lively and expressive your characters are, even though they seem a bit too tigger-happy to be in hell. :happybounce: :happybounce: :firelite-photo:

It's so quirky and well done. You've got something good going here! :D
PersonWithNoName Featured By Owner Jul 27, 2011
My gosh. That name. No wonder he goes by Sock...

I'm loving these comics. They're hilarious, and they really aren't all that sloppy. Better than what I can do.
zazz96 Featured By Owner May 12, 2011  Hobbyist Writer
Is it just me, or are there no comments on this?
How can there be no comments on THIS? This...MARVELOUS MASTERPIECE PAGE OF...of, uh...OF COMPLETE AND EPIC GODLINESS?
zazz96 Featured By Owner May 12, 2011  Hobbyist Writer
Of course, DA could just be acting up again.
I should hit it with something.

Breaking the fourth wall!

lol. I was laughing at all those close ups on Meph. x'D

He's so punny
SereneEcho Featured By Owner Feb 6, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
Oh gosh, the motivational posters are just beyond too much. xD Of course they'd show up in hell; they're evil! I love Mephistopheles' positions in this page, too. I can't resist a guy full of puns. Puns are just the best form of humor.

This comic is very witty and entertaining, and I've really enjoyed it so far. Can't wait to see more! =)
real-faker Featured By Owner Feb 6, 2011  Student Filmographer
Haha, thankyou!
I dunno, I think puns can either be incredibly clever, or really REALLY lame. Watching any anime dubbed by 4kids is a great example of lame puns. XD

But yes, anyway, glad to know you're enjoying it!
Silver-Pheanix Featured By Owner Feb 2, 2011  Student General Artist
This comic is so brilliant i keep reading over and over
I even read it out loud so i can do different voices for sock and mephi
...Mephi has kinda of a british accent...... im weird like that.
real-faker Featured By Owner Feb 6, 2011  Student Filmographer
Haha, thanks!
I have trouble imagining what they'd sound like, honestly. XD But I could see Mephi being mildly british. He speaks a little more eloquently.
DeegeCamari Featured By Owner Jan 28, 2011  Student Digital Artist
I love that the cabinet thing just gets longer and longer and longer.... :iconteheplz: and how Mephistopheles just starts floating upside down.

sgdjfdk I will never stop loving how you draw eyes, btw ;3; so awesome :heart:
real-faker Featured By Owner Jan 28, 2011  Student Filmographer
Haha, thanks! : D
Really? Ahaha... I keep on making Mephi's eyes WAAAAY too big and cutesy. They're not supposed to be that big. XD OH WELL. If it's workin', I'll go with it.

Ha... me too. X/ They just tend to be more interesting, you know?
twiliheroine Featured By Owner Jan 21, 2011
True, and with better backstories, which means feeling sorry for them a lot of the time ^^;
DieHardGuardGirl Featured By Owner Jan 17, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
Awesome writing! (btw, since we last talked I've become a professional writer, so you can tell your friends that a pro thinks you're F*CKIN AWESOME.)
real-faker Featured By Owner Jan 20, 2011  Student Filmographer
Dude, have you? That's awesome, man, great to hear! Did you get something published? Or are you employed in ... publishing? xD haha. I'm excited for you!

And thanks!
DieHardGuardGirl Featured By Owner Jan 26, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
I'm writing for two webseries. :P The first is going to KICK ASS but is not out yet, and the second is RATHER LAME but you can see the first episode HERE:
I entered this in a contest and the financial company that hosted it asked that I make at least two more and that they would pay me for each. It's geared towards kiddos I guess...I don't know what it is. But it's fun for me and money for me so YAY.

The other series is about superheroes and will be made by professional people > me, so it'll be muchmuchmuchmuch better. I think you'll really like it. We aimed for Dr. Horrible meets The Office.

These comics rock my socks off. Can't wait for moarrrrr

....You have to have a WtH movie animation or something. Your art style is just amazing!
real-faker Featured By Owner Dec 25, 2010  Student Filmographer
Hahaha! That would be incredibly fun. When my senior year comes around in animation, our curriculum is basically that we have the whole year to make our own short film... and I've seriously considered doing something with WtH, but in my mind it's something much more like a feature-length film. DX I'd have to cut it down or just do a small preview or something... which might not make a very nice senior film. Haha.
But thank you very much! : D
ember960 Featured By Owner Dec 24, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
Amazing as always :heart:
You know I love a good fourth wall breaking . . . or at least a knocking on like here XD

Haha... yeah, I dont' want to full on break it yet. XD Knocking-on is a good way to put it.
