So I’ll be rebooting the website layout in the near future! It’ll be more of an art blog for a few months while I work out more official/polished content to publish. For now follow me on twitter and catch me on twitch! I occasionally stream some live drawing sessions!
Time flies when life gets in the way…
So glad that I was able to restore the website entirely, all the comics/drawings/etc are here! I’ll do proper post later, but I just want to let y’all know that I plan to get back into the webcomic game soon! While my absence is more to do with personal health/life problems, I have been drawing on my own time a lot and have improved quite a bit since I last did comics.
Here’s a video I made directed at Carbine, regarding the problems with Wildstar’s PVP scene and the PVP server problems. Sorta did a illustrated video of sorts.
Here’s a mediocre Christmas Comic I whipped up for Wildstar, back when I ran Warhound Events and did a lot of Community stuff. I didn’t spend much time on it, but doing a proper comic sorta reignited my desire to do that story comic I talked about a while ago. Still need to readjust things, but the motivation is back!
Look forward to sharing more stuff with you guys!!
Sorry it took a while longer than planned for an update! I promise they’ll start to get more frequent, and I may even be starting the comic a bit sooner than expected!
One of the roadblocks I had was simply how to start the damn thing. I decided to borrow the TV show pilot idea and do a “Driving Nowhere Pilot” There will be 4-5 pages individually centering on what each character is doing before the comic launches. This way I can jump right into the comic without worrying too much about ‘setting the scene’ and awkwardly introducing characters for the reader.
This is important as I don’t plan on a typical storyline you see in webcomics. These characters will know each other, but it’s going to be realistic. Adults don’t hang out in large groups like a TV sitcom all pointed to one direction with “OH NO SHE DI-DNT!” one liners cracking off relentlessly to please the canned laugh track.. they have their own lives.
I’m interested in the interweaving, yet separate, relationships of many different people. More details later, but hopefully you’ll have fun experiencing this story with me.
Anyway I’m sorta firing off what’s on my mind right now. Random doodles above are ‘eh’, I have a pretty drawing I did with markers at the gallery I’ll post up later. :)
PS: OHYA, I decided to go back with Alexis and use ‘Lexi’ for short. Chloe just wasn’t working in my mind for that character, but I may end up using that name again in the future.
Hey guys! Wow, it’s been a few months already?! :|
So… I’m cautiously easing into website art updates again.. As I mentioned, I’ve been taking this break to improve my artwork and work on the ‘story based’ comic I had planned. While I have definitely made fun strides in my art, it’s mostly been an interesting and introspective time for me regarding my future projects.
I still intend to do an actual ‘comic’ with characters and story stuff, but those plans are and always were conceptual. I’ve been debating whether to jump right into something that I ‘may’ regret later, do something formulaic (durr two roommates who play videogames durrr) and easy, or create something that isn’t… indefinite? The problem I foresee is the typical webcomic trope of getting stuck inside this cast of hollow characters and a storyless story for page after page until you get bored and hack together an ending.
In order for me to work on anything beyond throwaway comics, I require a story or idea that I’m excited about exploring. Happily I came up with a possible solution that may be just what I’m looking for.
More on that later though, for now I give you an angsty orange I drew. A few weeks ago I started attending art classes at a local art gallery, and it’s been really fun learning stuff and trying a buncha techniques. Apologies for the poor quality; all the work I do at the gallery tend to stay there for convenience, so I took the pictures of this drawing with my cellphone:
Anyway, it’s good to be back! I’ll be regularly uploading artwork and further news about the comic to come, so keep an eye on this place. :)
