How would you react if you woke up next to your best friends doppelganger?

Follow JJ, Melina, Nathan and Epic Nat in a crazy webcomic by Melissa McCommon: Epic Chaos !

Hi Melissa !
– Where do you come from ??
Northern California
– How old are you ??
– Influences ??
– Art school or not ??
Yes? Though I have a college degree in illustration and graphic design, I feel I learned more through my own studying and research at home.
– Favorite digital art software ??
Paint Tool Sai

– Your working method ??
Up early, work for a few hours (making sure I take breaks), jumping from project to project to appease my ever changing attention span

– What your webcomic is about, in a symbolic way, the hidden sense ??
Melina draws a picture of her friend, for her friend, and the picture ends up coming to life. Though Melina and her friends Nathan and JJ see the newcomer as a threat, something more sister lurks in the distance that threatens to tear their lives apart, leaving them needing to trust the intruder doppelg?nger.
– Tell us more about your main character, the hero !?
There?s actually 4 main characters XD Melina- nursing student who draws sometimes as a hobby when she?s not swamped with college. A commission she did for her friend Nathan ends up coming to life (The intruder) JJ- a fashion major with an intense love of all things anime and manga, and will defend her ships with her last breath. Nate- undeclared, has an interest in psychology, but has issues dealing with people. Totally likes Melina, and JJ wont hesitate to mess with him about it. The Intruder (name revealed later)- doppelg?nger who looks like Nate, seems to be a little lost. Though defensive, he will fight if he?s in danger.
– How do you see your future ??
A few books published, more convention appearances, maybe a few more cats
– Your next goal ?
Get volume 1 of Epic Chaos! funded through Kickstarter in June!
– Advices for beginners ??
Though it seems hard, push forward. And don?t be afraid to take breaks. Your health is important.

– Your technical secret trick ??
Carry a sketchbook EVERYWHERE. Inspiration strikes in the weirdest moments, also it helps for recording important info

– Your social links and website ??
