Trigger Star Redux 27 by kevinbolk Trigger Star Redux 27 by kevinbolk
Read the original comic here: [link]

Read the recolored and "remastered" version here: [link]

The saga of The Last Mystical Legend of the Fantastic Fantasy Trigger Star continues...

BONUS DIRECTOR'S COMMENTARY

-And so we introduce the fan-favorite supporting cast. I'm actually really proud that Trigger Star evolved into a series where the sub-characters totally outshine the main one (I see it as a subtle form of karma).

-The background colors are red, purple, orange, and blue; the bandana colors of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. I was thinking about their introduction from the first episode of the classic cartoon when I colored this.

-Breadbun and Snacktray were meant to be direct parodies of Aerith and Tifa from Final Fantasy 7. They also fall into the Bimbo/Bitch character trope. This wasn't originally by design but as I started to work with these characters, I began have fun with the idea.

-Saurkraut was designed after a very good friend of mine who was a former marine and built like a tank (and probably one of the nicest guys I've ever met). I basically gave him boobs, long hair, lipstick, and a stray whisker and thus Saurkraut was born. She's actually become one of the studio's favorite characters.

-Corned Beef Hash was based loosely on Jim Kelly, famous for his roles in Bruce Lee's Enter the Dragon and my favorite guilty pleasure, Black Belt Jones.

-All the characters were specifically designed to fall into certain fantasy, cultural, and storytelling stereotypes/cliches but turned slightly on their heads, in some ways that we have yet to reveal in the series. Looking forward to surprising a few of you guys before Trigger Star meets its end.

--The original comic was done April 28 2006 Words, Pencils, Inks & Color by Me

Someday you have to do a strip pondering the mystery of how busty toon women manage keep their breasts in those little tops no matter how violently they move.

Just curious, if Breadbun and Snacktray are based off of Tifa and Aerith(Aeris?) which is which? My brother saw this and guessed Breadbun was Aerith and Snacktray was Tifa but I guessed the other way around. So which is it D8 I MUST KNOW NOW!

I must say, when I first started the original comic out of curiosity, I thought it was totally full of shit and completely pointless...and then I found myself laughing and smiling and I realized that I'd come to enjoy it quite a lot ^^

kevinbolk Featured By Owner Mar 31, 2011
Everyone except Breadbun got their colors toned down a bit. I had a very limited palette (since I was just learning photoshop) when I first started coloring these.

Does Tifa actually count as a bimbo? I mean, it's obvious she's somewhat of a fanservice character. However, I didn't find her too annoying and I thought she was somewhat important to the plot.

Maybe I just don't remember enough from the game. ^^;

I just went to the Interrobang Studios website to read the rest of the comic, and I must say, Sauerkraut is definitely my favorite character so far. :D

why are all the characters named after food? is this just some in-universe pun?
Reply
:iconkevinbolk:
kevinbolk Featured By Owner Mar 30, 2011
Pretty much. There was a reason behind the food names, but I've long since forgotten it.
Reply
:iconskotlex:
Skotlex Featured By Owner Mar 31, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Personally, I just thought naming all characters after food was an intentional poke at the fact that most fantasy games look into ancient mythology to pick names with deep meanings and all that stuff.

It seemed to make perfect sense (in this comic) that you'd replace, let's say, nordic mythology, for culinary lore. But that was my own conclusion when I first started reading these comics.
