Post subject:  [Webcomic] Simon & Freddy

Alright, Ladies and Gentlemen. Almost a year ago, I started to draw a webcomic… after several restarts I wasn’t sure if I would ever publish it… but then i thought „What the hey“… so here is it: my first webcomic. :mrgreen:
I proudly present: Simon & Freddy:

Image

The comic

Simon & Freddy is a comic about a talking pet fox, his owner Simon and all the little things around them. The story takes place somewhere in the USA.
Even though animals can do human stuff (thanks to thumbs) and even read and understand human language, they’re not able to speak with humans (except Freddy). Strange I know… Don’t blame me, I didn’t make the rules… well actually I did but… hey look over there! A three-headed monkey behind you! *runs away*
I started to draw the first comic strips in 2011 with paper and pencil. Back then, the comic had a different name, a different story and even different characters. After redoing the whole concept twice I started another try. This time with the title „Simon & Freddy“ in digital form and with a tablet. On the 25th of August, 2013 I finally decided to release the comic here on the Housepets! forum. I also started to put my comic on deviantArt, FurAffinity and Weasyl.
I found SwedishWolf in Febraury 2014, a great guy who helped me build a Webpage (release soon ;) ), and here we are. Welcome to Simon & Freddy!

The author

Hey folks! My name is Hukley, and I’m a student from Switzerland (who will hopefully become a primary school teacher someday). Since my early childhood I have been a huge fan of drawing. Comics and cartoons are a big passion of mine, and I always wanted to start drawing my own comic.
In 2013, I finally realized that wish and here we are now and I can proudly present Simon & Freddy to you. I hope you like it!

Thanks

And now I want to thank some people. Without them, there wouldn’t be a Simon & Freddy!
I want to thank SwedishWolf who build the webpage and did things I didn’t even dare to dream. (as I said: release soon :D )
Big Thanks go to Obbl who has done a fantastic job with editing and counterchecking since the beginning of this comic. Without him you all would have had to deal with my mediocre English.
I also want to thank Valerio who’s providing the Italian translation of all the comic strips. Mille Grazie mio amico!
Then I want to thank Hlaoroo who’s helping me with great background information, co-writing and providing the Australian accent for Beatrice.
And last but not least I want to thank ALL OF YOU. Thanks for your suggestions, the nice words, your feedback, your comments, and thank you for your much appreciated support, for reading this comic, for everything!

Without your help, there wouldn’t be a "Simon & Freddy"! You’re awesome, and it’s a true pleasure to work on this comic. Thank you very much!

Of course I appreciate every feedback of any kind ! :D
If you like it, I’ll update weekly on Saturday.
Oh, and I always post a German and an English Version (because I originally draw it with German words)

Welcome to the « cast page » ;)
Image

Image
Freddy: Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the fox’s den. Allow me to introduce to you one of the comic's main protagonists. Freddy (Frederick T. Fox… Don’t ask him what the „T“ stands for… he won’t tell)
He’s a talking pet fox (but shhhh, it's a secret to (almost) everybody). He is.. well, let’s say very self-confident and has a big mouth, which sometimes can cause some trouble for him… or more often his owner Simon. But at the bottom of his heart he’s a fast friend.
One of his big passions : eating ! Give that little orange guy a cookie and he’ll be happy for hours.
Other than that he’s really enjoying all the comfort and laziness of a pet's life.

Image
Simon: Simon is the other protagonist of this comic and the owner of Freddy. He’s a true daydreamer. He’s writing „that book“ which will surely make him famous and so forth… but in the meantime he keeps himself above water with occasional jobs
In his spare time he likes to draw, and he’s also a huge fan of music stuff.
He’s a very decent cook and his sandwiches are legend… wait for it… dary! The problem is being able to eat them before Freddy gets his paws on them…

Image
Cathy (Catherin): Cathy (or Catherin) is the friendly, clumsy cat from the neighborhood… and she’s a real jinx.
All she wants to do is the right thing, but misfortune often has other plans. These circumstances made her a true optimist so… You can’t get that cat down… and she also has a special arrangemet with the vet. (bulk discount...)

Image
Angie (Angelica): Angie (or Angelica) is the new neighbor of Simon and Freddy. She’s the owner of Cathy. You want to beat this girl in a videogame? Forget it! Being raised with 3 brothers, she really grew a huge passion for videogames which also led to her job as a videogame developer.
One thing she can’t handle? Boredom! So, she’s open to any kind of adventure.

Image
Sheldon: A sinister, power hungry, maniac squirrel that wants world domination ? Yeah, that’s Sheldon.
That red little rodent has alway got a plan up his sleeve. He‘s the older brother of Sammy, and even though he’s a megalomaniacal little villain, he’s very conscientious when it comes to his younger brohter, which shows that somewhere beneath that rough exterior beats a heart of gold.

Image
Sammy: He’s the younger brother of Sheldon and a very friendly, helpful little guy who just wants to please his older brother who is his role model. He knows that Sheldon is a good guy at the bottom of his heart, so he’s willing to help him with his world domination plans.

Image
Flower: Well... that's a flower...

A new webcomic that updates Sundays and sports a talking fox?! Why didn't you tell me before!! :lol:
Seems a great idea, I assume that these are but the two main characters and we can expect many more, and the characters are good. This has my support. :D

Post subject:  Re: [Webcomic] Simon & Freddy

I like it! I'm sure it'll be fun xD

Just, a suggestion. I'm guessing that, in the last panel, Simon's talking first. In that case, next time i suggest to organize the speech bubbles better so to underline who's talking first. Usually the form is "from top to bottom" so to make it understandable ;) example:

http://housepets1x.thecomicseries.com/images/comics/64/f6684f4fabd81483b983409ad386a05d1415707470.png in the 3rd panel.

I'm curious to see the next updates! =D

Post subject:  Re: [Webcomic] Simon & Freddy

I'll be honest I thought at first Freddy was talking back to Simon in the second panel, but then realized Simon was continuing to speak. I'm no expert at comics, but I think it would help if you connected the speech bubbles to show the continuation of who ever is speaking. Awesome comic though :) I really look forward to seeing where you take this.

Looks like Freddy is lazy and so has found a good excuse to don't do the work of mouse-catcher, and the Simon's reply sounds like "nice try, mate". ;)

Also, it's curious and funny that Simon notices such little things but doesn't notice a bigger one like Freddy's shedding. Now, looking forward for the story arc. :D
