30 Comics With Absurd Situations And Unexpected Endings By This Artist


Different authors with various types of content are featured frequently on Bored Panda, thus comics are a typical sight. Some webcomics have been around for a while, but new ones are always popping up with new and innovative concepts. This “Colmscomics” series is precisely that – a breath of fresh air. The creator of the comics prefers to keep his humor dark at times, and the cartoons frequently feature surprise twists at the conclusion.

“I’m simply a dude with a pen, a dream, and a very questionable sense of humor,” the artist writes in his Instagram account.

Given how funny and clever their comics are, “Colmscomics” has about 7,000 Instagram followers and is rapidly growing! The musician also has a Patreon account, where fans can donate to him in three different ways: “The Supporter,” “The Fan,” and “The Enjoyer.” Each of the three tiers has its own set of benefits and grants access to the artist’s various types of work.



Because art, in any form, takes a long time to practice as well as to produce, we asked the artist how long it takes him to complete his comics.

“From beginning to end, one of my comics takes about 6 hours. I usually spend a lot of time on the drawing because that’s where I try to put my ideas down on paper (or screen). After that, it’s only a matter of finishing the line work and adding color. When I’m attempting something new for the first time or trying to get the lighting just right, the coloring can take a long time. I strive to strike a balance between delivering a credible scene and without overdoing itI put in a lot of effort and frequently fail at both haha.”



Being a cartoonist is difficult; one can quickly experience a lack of inspiration, exhaustion, and other issues, therefore we wanted to question Colm about his comics ideas.

Comedy has always been a passion of mine. I like to watch a lot of comedies on TV and read a lot of comedies in comics and books. You pick up the little structures that make jokes and the nuances that make a situation amusing along the way. When comedy is such a large part of your life, you can’t help but look at anything and see what could be hilarious about it. I’ll come up with jokes in the middle of the day or sit down with the purpose of coming up with something amusing and simply let my mind roam. When I’m really struggling, I’ll switch gears and read or watch something funny to help me get through it.I’m trying to get myself in the appropriate frame of mind.”



As previously stated, creative activity may sometimes lead to burnout, therefore we inquired as to how the artist dealt with this as well.

“Yes, in a nutshell. Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes As you may think, your creativity isn’t like a light switch that you can turn on and off whenever you want. Because you’re weary or anxious, your creative or hilarious ideas may come to a halt. It’s also disheartening when you put a lot of effort into a comic and receive very little feedback. However, in those situations, all you have to do is wash your hands of the previous task and move on to the next. When I feel burned out on the comics for whatever reason, I take a break and just draw things for enjoyment – even if it’s just a bunch of weird doodles.”



We also inquired about the public’s reaction to the comic artist’s work.

When I show someone a comic I’ve made or am working on, they frequently laugh or tell me how much they enjoy it. I’m not sure if that’s genuine or just courtesy, and I’d rather not know. Over the other hand, you get a far more honest response on the internet. People either laugh or tell me they enjoy the work, so I receive a lot of positive feedback. Some people will simply not get the joke and will berate you for wasting their time, implying that you should go for a long walk off a short pier, but hey, that’s the internet for you!”



Although the creative process is not easy, there are many delightful aspects to it, as the artist described.

It’s the sketching that I appreciate the most. Others may prefer line art and color because the sketch has already done the hard work, but I appreciate the freedom that comes with drawing. I’ve discovered that you don’t need to worry about whether a line is perfect or whether the colors compliment each other; instead, you can just let your hand run wild and see what happens. I usually do my sketch one day and finish the comic the following, merely to relieve any pressure of feeling obligated to complete the sketch within a set amount of time.



“As I already stated, my two major influencers at the time were Adamtots and Randowis, both of7 whom I discovered on Instagram. Because many artists strive to help one other out by collaborating with or sharing the work of other artists, Instagram was a great location to locate webcomics. Because the art community on Instagram seemed to me to be a very helpful and inviting place, I decided to join and post my work there because I truly wanted to be a part of that community.”



Because digital art, like all art, is difficult and involves a lot of patience, time, resources, and, in most cases, money, we wanted to learn how the outstanding comic artist got started in digital art.

My first encounter with digital art was in high school art class. Because of how forgiving digital art can be, I fell in love with it right away. If you make a mistake on paper, you’ll have to use an eraser and hope you don’t leave a smudge, but with digital, it’s as simple as pressing the undo hotkey. It was also around this time that I began to notice a lot of really great art online, from folks like Sinix Design, who would create the most incredible art using only digital means. I’ve experimented in a variety of art forms throughout my life. It started out simple, with simply paper and a pencil.Then I used Maya to make some 3D modeling and animation, as well as some stop motion. Digital art, on the other hand, is where I keep coming back to.”



Artists are inspired by a variety of factors, including curiosity, beauty, and even significance. We couldn’t help but inquire about Colm’s personal artistic drive.

To tell you the truth, I’m not sure.” On one side, I’d like to make very fantastic art, the kind that makes you pause and think, “Wow.” On the other side, I’d like someone to look at it and belly laugh uncontrollably. Both of these things necessitate two very distinct types of art. I’m occasionally concerned that I’m chasing two hares. I think you could say that what drives me the most is progress.I’m always striving to be better, and no matter what I do, I’ll never be satisfied for long, but that makes me happy because it motivates me to keep going.”
