I'm up at the school scanning things!

The school has a large Epson this-that-and-another-with-4-digit-number-you-can't-buy-me....scanner....perfect for 11 x 17 pages. I think it goes to 12x 17 1/2 or something. Anyways...

Thought I might show the first design sheet for Ivan Greystone; a mercenary, rogue, and professional asshole who can heal from any wound. He's the main character of the story who prefers to keep his past a secret, even from his closest friends. When your secret involves the near destruction of an entire nation and threatened the entire continent (all volunterally), you'd wanna keep it a secret too.

I'll post more when the school's not closing for the day.

This thing took up my time today

And what a thing it is.

Orthographic front view of the creature called the Seethe. Front view, complete with notes to Gene who'll be modeling it in 3D

Side view is next.

The 4th

Was pretty fun. But I'm tired as all get out.
I downed so much coffee it's not funny.

Me and my friends went out to a little NorthWest Texas town called Munster and shot fireworks.

Catastrophe shot off fireworks too.

...Really big ones...

...The tech specialist she is.

I'll post the comic when it's done.

I've been drawing!....Seriously.

I just haven't been posting! I'm not in the habit.
My friend Gene got onto me about posting because he's seen some of my work and said, "Ok dude. You need to be posting this stuff. All of this stuff. This is cool!"

So I will.

But I've also been reading a few blogs and websites too. I'll post the links to these later.

Without further ado, more art!

So, I'm working on a graphic novel project called The Legends of Basiliea, and it's made a lot of progress over the past few months. The books I've been reading, advice and feedback I've gotten, and everyone's input at this stage I've been so appreciative of.

These are some cover designs I've cooked up over the past while. Most of them arn't complete as you can see. But they're something I can work off of.

Cover of Issue 2 as it stands. "Your house is burning". A few things need to be changed and worked out. But the essence of this picture is the same. We've got our main characters standing in front of a burning house. Ivan, the guy in front is going to hold a torch, not a sword. :P
In the background is Indira (the girl), and Devin (the guy). All three are mercenaries and these first few issues go completely wrong for them.

And here we have this guy. Big bad looking dude. I don't have a name for him, but he's called a Seethe. Seethes were once Matalla, a race of silver-mask wearing gods who preside over the universe's ecosystem. Their mask is their main source of of power and energy that's called their Glory. Seethes are created when their Glory consumes them and takes over their whole body, giving them a slowing silver appearance.

Needless to say they're a major part of the graphic novel project.

Gene wants to model this dude here. So I need to give him a really good name. Any ideas? Dunno if he's an ally or enemy at this point. So feel free to bring some names.

With all this drawing, I need to get back in the habit of writing. So I'll be making time for that soon. I just need to get into a habit and routine and I'll be fine. And actually be more productive.
