Webcomic Artists on Deviantart

Updated on June 20, 2012

Find the Best Webcomic Artists on DeviantART

If you enjoy reading webcomics, and want to find out more, if you admire the artists and want to see more of their work, or if you simply want to find some beautiful artwork on DeviantART... read on.

I am an avid webcomic reader, and a passionate artist, and a compulsive collector of pretty art. As such, one of the first things I look for now, on finding a well drawn webcomic, is whether they have a DeviantART gallery for me to look through, and hopefully watch - far easier than keeping track of different sites.

All the webcomics on here are ones I read regularly and enjoy. Doesn't necessarily mean they're good - but I think they are! Basically, this is the page of webcomics I would recommend anyone look at. I will of course add to this page as I discover more webcomic artists on DeviantART.

And may I point out to readers the Required Reading About Webcomics for readers, fans, would-be writers and artists and... well everyone. I'm collecting informative rants from webcomic artists in this section about how-tos, not-tos, dos, don't whats, wheres, etiquette, plot, design...

Disclaimer and Overview

The obvious - stated for posterity

1. I am not affiliated with any of these artists, nor is this an official page.

2. The art linked on this page belongs to the respective artists. It may be free to take, but most of it will not be. You check with the artist first.

(For some free wallpapers check out my Places to find me lens

I repeat, if you see some art here you like, and if you wish to use it for something *ask first* - I do not allow commercial use, but will probably be happy with other things. And I do NOT speak for any other artists here

3. Reading this page signifies agreement and acceptance with my status as ruler of the world. I will expect your tribute after the beep.

4. To search for artists on Deviantart:

- either randomly, search by keyword and hope they remembered to write it on their work (*again, I may have missed yours because I couldn't find it this way!* )

- using their name.

If you know their name, you can go to them directly, by typing [NAME].deviantart.com

eg flynn-the-cat.deviantart.com

It's still being written up - original descriptions for each comic, as well as banners, art from the DeviantART gallery (hopefully including an example comic page) and links to books to buy, if they exist. This means I have to hunt all these down, reupload banners, get my linkage correct and in some cases rereads the comic's beginning, so I now what I'm talking about.

No Rest For The Wicked - Andrael on DeviantART

"No Rest For The Wicked:

"One day, the Moon up and disappeared; where it went, or why, none can say. Without the Moon's light to keep them in check at night, monsters, crawling horrors, and other creatures of the dark run rampant throughout the land. But Princess November has much more pressing matters to worry about: she hasn't had a decent sleep in ages."

Updatesrarely, best option is to subscribe via email

First page

No Rest For The Wicked is one of my favourites - rarely updated, I recommend you add yourself to the email list. It references a great many old and wonderful fairy tales in interesting ways. The cast is fascinating, full of character - the curious, pretty and brave Princess November, who is very delicate and allergic to peas, out to break her curse of sleeplessness; the very catlike (that is selfish, refined, and clever) Puss; the mysterious and terrifying Red, who keeps her own counsel;

Pierre, the Marquis de Carabas - Puss' master... "He had an extremely loose upbringing. Also he fell on his head as child. Very sad."; Clare, the sad and guilt ridden once-queen, her hands replaced by silver; the Boy, a mysterious and cheerful stalker questing after Princess November, and Prince Ricardo, the endlessly picky, who dashes in and out of the story rescuing and discarding princesses...

Among others.

The artist, Andrea L. Peterson has a gallery on DeviantART under the name Andrael

      NR is one of those rare webcomics that you can recommend without feeling like a loser whose tastes will be judged and found wanting. I want to eat the artist's brain and gain her skills.

    Digger - Ursulav on DeviantART

    Some sadistic git on the GIANTITP forums linked me to Digger at 11pm one night. Only years of finely honed willpower, survival skills, and built up resistance to the lure of webcomics allowed me to stop reading before 3am.

    Digger is a story about a wombat. More specifically, it is a story about a particularly no-nonsense wombat who finds herself stuck on the wrong end of a one-way tunnel in a strange land where nonsense seems to be the specialty. Now with the help of a talking statue of a god, an outcast hyena, a shadow-being of undeterminate origin, and an oracular slug, she seeks to find out where she is and how to go about getting back to her Warren.

    Updates Tuesdays and Thursdays

    This book mixes cuteness and cleverness, demons, forgiveness, cannibal rites, talking snails, morality, death, trust and geology. I recommend it. A lot.

    A very strong flavour of Pratchett - that classic mixture of humour, sideways-ness and plainest of sense, as well as the odd direct reference ('don't eat anything that talks', messenger 'pigeons') underpins this webcomic. Add in an astonishing variety of obscure mythologies - vampire gourds, creation stories, and the elephant god (and its statue) Ghanesh, to name a few - and different cultures - villagers, hunter-gatherers, fanatics and more - all conveyed realistically, all fitting into the story.... and through it all trudges Digger, trying to find her way home, dismissing problems and Gods wih equal practicality.

    Reminds me a lot of Vimes, actually ^_^

    Also, one of the best summations of good verus evil that I've read in a long while...

    Ursula Vernon's art can also be found as Ursulav on DeviantART

    The Digger Duel - Is it worth reading?

    I think Digger is one of the better webcomics on the web - although I admit it's a little slow going, page by page. I love the charcaters, the subtle humour, the fact it all works and the unique art style.

    But what do you think about Digger?

        The Dreamer - Comic-Chic on DeviantART

        The Dreamer:

        "Beatrice "Bea" Whaley seems to have it all; the seventeen year old high school senior is beautiful, wealthy and the star performer of the drama club. And with her uncle's connections to Broadway theater, the future looks bright ahead of her. Little does she know that her future might actually be brighter behind her.

        Bea begins having vivid dreams about a brave and handsome soldier named Alan Warren-a member of an elite group known as Knowlton's Rangers that served during the Revolutionary War. Prone to keeping her head in the clouds, Bea welcomes her nightly adventures in 1776; filled with danger and romance they give her much to muse about the next day. But it is not long before Beatrice questions whether her dreams are simply dreams or something more. Each night they pick up exactly where the last one ended. And the senses-the smell of musket shots and cannons, the screams of soldiers in agony, and that kiss-are all far more real than any dream she can remember."

        Updates Two pages on Fridays

        Updates 2 pages every Friday.

        The Dreamer is an epic, and exciting adventure of Bea's double life in modern day high school and in the turmoil of the Revolution. And drawn beautifully - yet another webcomic whose quality and layout that tricks you into thinking it's a book you grabbed off the new releases stand in the library before it disappeared forever (...graphic novels get stolen a lot from public libraries, for some reason).

        The Dreamer Volume 1: The Consequence of Nathan Hale (Pt. 1)
        The Dreamer Volume 1: The Consequence of Nathan Hale (Pt. 1)

        This webcomic is *big*. Each page is in graphic novel format, and it's long enough to have six published books already. And therefore, much easier, and nicer, to read holding it in your hands.

        Lora Innes writes and illustrates the tale of 17-year-old Beatrice "Bea" Whaley, a student who begins having vivid dreams about a brave and handsome soldier named Alan Warren... a member of an elite group known as Knowlton's Rangers that fought during the Revolutionary War. Prone to keeping her head in the clouds, Bea welcomes her nightly adventures in 1776; filled with danger and romance they give her much to muse about the next day. But it is not long before Beatrice questions whether her dreams are simply dreams or something more... each issue of this new historical action romance features a full 25 pages of story and art.

        Price: $19.86

         

        The rest of The Dreamer graphic novels. - So far The Dreamer is up to its sixth book. I am impressed.

        Lora Innes' Revolutionary War-era romantic adventure continues.

        Prices seem to be showing inconsistently, but - depending on the publisher - it seems to be $3.99-$5.95 for each graphic novel.

        Dreamer #2
        Dreamer #2

        In issue two, Bea wrestles through the implications of her previous night's dreams and winds up taking it out on her unsuspecting cousin. And when she falls asleep right before a very important event, Bea finds herself back in the eighteenth century struggling to get to the bottom of what is happening

         
        Dreamer #3 (IDW Publishing)
        Dreamer #3 (IDW Publishing)

        In issue three, Bea wakes up from yet another vivid dream about Knowlton's Rangers just in time to make it to the museum for her date with Ben. The evening takes a sudden turn for the worse when she discovers an ominous clue in a painting-a clue that suggests at least one of the Rangers is in mortal danger.

         
        Dreamer #4
        Dreamer #4

        Disturbed by her discovery at the art museum, Bea convinces Captain Hale that it is imperative that they rescue Alan. However, she realizes things are not quite as they seemed and her mistake just might cost them their lives...

         
        Dreamer #5
        Dreamer #5

        Bea and Nathan manage to find their way back to Knowlton's Rangers in time to warn them that General Howe has set a trap for the Americans. The Rangers make a hasty retreat but are caught off guard by a group of Redcoats, and it's a flight for their lives to make it back toward the forts.

         
        Dreamer #6
        Dreamer #6

        With the Americans trapped between the British Army and the East River, Knowlton's Rangers find themselves in an impossible situation. But when the adventure finally comes to an end, Bea finds herself back home, alone, and reeling from the events of the battle.

            I hadn't heard of these before (I haven't seen a comic since I sold off a giant box load of ones I'd had forever last year) but I do appreciate and admire the art work on this one in particular. Nice write up!

          Earthsong - LadyYates on DeviantART

          Earthsong:

          A young woman named Willow awakens to find herself on a mystical world with no memories of her former life. She soon discovers that not only are the residents of this world fantastical creatures of ancient lore, but the planet itself is alive and conscious... and in grave danger! Caught in the middle of a terrible struggle, Willow must come to terms with a harsh reality not of her choosing.

          I present... the beautiful Earthsong

          Updates Monday

          I actually picked up the book in the library a few months ago and was very impressed. (Well, actually, I was more impressed by it being something I'd seen online, actually making it into my library, but!) the art is lovely, every character is completely unique by definition (one single representative of each species across the universe). It combines superhero comics (they all have magic powers or special abilities) with fantasy manga.

          See the DeviantART gallery of LadyYates

          Earthsong Vol 1
          Earthsong Vol 1

          There are so many reasons why Earthsong is worth buying. Number one has to be the art though, it's one gorgeous page after the other. The colors are jaw dropping, the characters are extremely well designed, and overall if for nothing else you'll want to buy it just to be able look at something this gorgeous.

          But you'll want to buy it for more then that. Because the storyline is as good as the artwork. It's engaging and unique, but has a lot of very familiar tones to it that will entertain sci-fi, fantasy, and even action/adventure fans alike. In my opinion, it's one of the best on-line to print comics since megatokyo.

            Gunnerkrigg Court, Vol. 1: Orientation
            Gunnerkrigg Court, Vol. 1: Orientation

            This graphic novel has the all-round appeal of the Harry Potter series -- not to name-drop. Drawn with a quirky style that comes alive as the book progress, this series of clever stories quickly pulls you in and takes you to a world of a taciturn pre-teen alone in a English boarding school. Still waters run deep, you soon find with Antimony, as she has the knack for knowing foreign languages or beings able to throw a bully to the ground, but all with a quiet stillness that hides deep wounds. Only her close friend Kat can make her break a smile.

            Together Kat and Annie (as Kat calls her) explore the strange things that are happening around them. This is not an ordinary English school, they soon find out.

            This is a perfect father / daughter book, except that dad may wind up stealing it to read himself!

             
            Gunnerkrigg Court Volume 2: Research
            Gunnerkrigg Court Volume 2: Research

            Annie and Kat begin their second year at Gunnerkrigg Court! Parts of Annie's past are revealed, as well as mysteries that tie back to the origins of the Court itself. Finding a secret tomb of ancient robots beneath Kat's workshop leads the two friends to question how they are linked to the mysterious ghost that attacked Annie the year before. And as a new Medium-In-Training, Annie is able to visit the powerful trickster god Coyote in Gillitie Forest, a visit that reveals more than she ever imagined!

                Heliothaumic - Rincewindmog on DeviantART

                Heliothaumic: "In reimagining The Midlands, the webcomic of his youth, Riley wrestles with issues of prejudice, power, longevity and material exhaustion that his generation will likely face into their old age. The world of Heliothaumic stands between twin precipices of the abandonment of feudalism by fantasy races, and their equal unreadiness for the onrush of a technomagical singularity. History collapses in on the characters across both space and time-elves without an Edda risk epic fail, while wandering prodigals try to make up their own victory conditions of life."

                Updates: Tuesdays and Saturdays

                Heliothaumic has a slightly odd, but engaging art style, which certainly grows on you. I'll warn right now for nudity, and sex, but it's handled in a 'this is part of our lives' way, and a natural result of the characters' interactions.

                A futuristic, not-quite-Earth-as-we-know-it, story, with desert 'Deadlands' destroying arable farmland, cities, and feuding nations, technology, University students and elves. Swings from dying Elvish nation, to best friends feuding on a road trip, to getting a job, to sex, to Thaumaturgy, to politics...

                Start reading from the beginning or...

                    Kagerou - An Electric Manga

                    Kagerou:

                    "In this story, our protagonist Kano finds himself in a strange and fantastical place known as Gray World. As one would expect in such a situation, he is revealed to be a Chosen Hero charged with an Epic Quest to rescue a captured princess. But as it turns out, Kano has more than one person living in his head -- and at least one of these is a dangerous psychopath."

                    Updates occasionally - sometimes a page a week, sometimes four pages in one go. New pages announced on their DeviantART and Livejournal community

                    I LOVE this webcomic. Kagerou is japanese for dragonfly, and Luka Delaney's art is splendid, evolving and fantastic.

                    So, how do you tell if you're dreaming or possessed, if you're a magical Champion, with a penchant for suicide and multiple personalities?

                    The art is constantly improving, the characters are varied and believable, the main character has a very good reason to believe he's hallucinating - and somehow, he has to figure out the whole 'Champion' business. Parts of this are somewhat mature, due to zombies, selfharm, violence, insanity and various, but it's a very, very, good read, and the grittiness makes it more real.

                    I would point out that this is after reading,a nd rereading Kagerou for a long time. It's quite complicated, and the beginning doesn't explain much. But it all builds on itself, so it IS worth it.

                    Start at the first page....

                    LinT - Planussea on DeviantART

                    The funny and lovely Lint is the unabashedly cliche story of Sangwine Schloeffel, an elven prince who has suffered the misfortune of having been exiled from his homeland and lost his father to an evil usurper. Along the way he learns things, the people around him learn things, they get on each other's nerves a lot, and overcome that which they must.

                    .

                    Updates Tuesdays amd Fridays

                    I adore LinT - the art is lovely and constantly improving, the humour is oddball and never sacrificed, sacrfices are made and are always touching, people change and grow and fall in love, relationships are refused and stereotypes inverted. It begins as a fantasy romp of elf prince gathering his loyal band of ... people, and grows into a more epic 'save the kingdom and overthrow the usurper' story.

                    Having been rereading the comic from the beginning, the initial impressions:

                    First 2-3 pages are terrible. Drawing is poor and scratchy pencil or ink, dialogue is forced, and basically it's 'obvious scene setting'. (Actually, the first page is a much more recent painting of Zedwig, so loook forward to more of that later).

                    But then! It switches suddenly to well drawn pencil, dialogue improves and the storyline, while making little sense, flows more naturally. The quest begins!

                    Somewhere between 50-100 pages later, digital colour kicks in. While initially sorry to see the lovely pencil drawing disappear, the underlying grace of the art was still there and the colour lent a vibrancy of life to the scenes and people. This only improves.

                    And for the books... these are tie-ins to the webcomic, which isn't in print yet, but I'm considering buying them myself (and postage to New Zealand is enough to put me off, unless I really mean it! And lets not talk about the exchange rate *sobs*)

                    Rampant nudity throughout the first chapter (a girl running around in the jungle, basically) so be warned. Although it doesn't actually come off as very NSFW to me, but then, I've been reading YAFGC

                    So far, this comic is not in print (the year is yet young, and while it updates weekly, hath not yet accumulated such a following and backlog as to lend sufficient support to the author's confidence that he has to the publisher taken it)

                      Together with his newfound companions, Acheron quickly learns that the world is not the peaceful place he believed it to be, embroiled in prejudice, hidden danger, and unexpected mystery.

                      Red String - Strawberrygina on DeviantART

                      Red String: "A Japanese high schooler's coming-of-age tale of romance, destiny, and self-discovery."

                      About Red String

                      Updates Monday to Thursday, and sketch fridays

                      The very popular, sweet and romantic manga Red String follows Miharu and her school friends through life, love,a arranged marriages; covering boys, girls, school troubles, work, business, cooking and family. Sweet, but not simple, the characters are original and engaging. This comic is well written and drawn so nicely that I kept forgetting it was a webcomic and not a published manga I'd pick up in the library!

                      It's been picked up by Dark Horse Comics and the fourth volume is hopefully out in May.

                      Red String: The Artist and the Books

                      The artist is Gina Biggs, and her DeviantART gallery is at StrawberryGina

                      Red String Volume 1
                      Red String Volume 1

                      When first-year high school student Miharu Ogawa gets a call from her parents, telling her to come straight home from school, she prepares herself for the worst. After all, the last time her quirky restaurateur parents told her to come straight home she ended up as a contestant on a kiddy game show! But nothing she could ever have imagined could have prepared her for their "great news:" Miharu is getting married! How's a spirited and independent teenager who has never even kissed a boy supposed to deal with suddenly having a fiance she's never even met? And how will her feelings change when she finds out that there are other boys out there vying for her affection, and other girls ready and willing to take away the man she's not even sure she's ready for? With her family, friends (and enemies!) to cope with, will Miharu even have the time to find out if the handsome, devoted Kazuo Fujiwara is really the man she is meant to be with, the man connected to her by the red string of destiny?

                      Red String Volume 2 (v. 2)

                      Romantic high school student Miharu Ogawa believes that red strings of destiny tie lovers together forever, but a few hardened hearts around her feel that such bonds can be easily broken. Still struggling with the news of the arranged marriage that her parents lined up for her, Miharu begins to doubt her first instincts about Kazuo Fujiwara. After a rainy afternoon brings them together, Miharu finds that she has more in common with the salacious Makoto Yosue than she thought. Karen begins to vie for the heart of a boy who's promised to another, as memories of a past love torture her. Collected for the first time ever, this second book presents chapters eight to fourteen of an ongoing journey of self-discovery.

                      Red String Volume 3 (v. 3)

                      With a dear friend moving to Tokyo, an arranged marriage pending, and a difficult teacher holding a grudge against her, Miharu Ogawa is having one of her worst semesters in school ever! Her friends aren't having an easy time, either. After breaking down and finally expressing her feelings to Fuuko, Maya seeks solace and advice from Karen-who isn't really an expert in love and is having her own relationship problems. "Lone Wolf" Hayashihara struggles with the fact that he's actually making friends, a new character - Jun Mataichi - arrives to stir up a little more confusion, and a snowy accident brings two bickering souls closer together. Red String delivers all of the great surprises and romantic moments you've come to expect and enjoy!

                      For Aiden Cambell, things will never be the same again. He finds himself on the run after becoming the unwitting victim of a horrible experiment. Though safe from the corporation that would prefer him dead rather than alive, he discovers the future may hold a terrible promise.

                      Sunset Grill

                      Katfeete on DeviantART

                      Sunset Grill is a 3d generated story set in the future, on some other planet. It's an intriguing tale of gangsters, the underworld, the Empire and prejudice. A new comic, that deserves visits and encouragement!

                      Updates Monday, Wednesday, Friday

                      The year is 2426. Earth is a patchwork quilt of restive, squabbling Domains, loosely joined under the mantle of the Empire, which fights to present a strong, united front to the dozens of technologically advanced, land-hungry, and not particularly moral alien races. The Empire also controls the Sol weftgate, humanity's connection to the galaxy at large: through it goes a steady stream of cheap labor, gone to build, clean, or kill for the wealthier races, and through it comes the money and alien technology that fuels much of Earth's economy.

                      None of which matters particularly to the patrons of the Sunset Grill, a bar on the shady side of town in the run-down and corrupt city of Kieselburg. They're too busy staying alive. Because no matter what the year, there will always be those who struggle to survive. And no matter how distant, how strange, or how advanced the place, there will always be someone to ask that all-important question: "Hey, is there anywhere in this dump I can get a decent beer?"

                      To quote from the above blog entry

                      "You might read a comic and think to yourself, "Boy, this sure is an excellent comic! But I'm sure the writer hears that all the time. I don't need to write and tell them about it." You would be wrong there.

                      People are much more likely to write in with something negative than something positive. People love to complain. But nothing motivates a webcomicker more than someone taking the time to tell them "Good job! Keep it up!""

                      What do you think?

                      I think webcomic writers and artists deserve a shoutout and praise! Do you agree? Who specifically, do you think deserves a bit of praise today?
