Hey everyone. Just a quick update on things. Since I am coming up on my last classes for my Masters degree and will be finishing in June, I won’t be doing any other sketches until I’m finished. I will still be writing background for First Earth, blogging and podcast episodes on the Learning Curve. Stay tuned and Be blessed.
I wanted to apologize to those who on Facebook who I’ve sent out an Invite to like my Pisces Concepts after liking my artwork. I didn’t think about how people would feel about getting that sent to them so I’m sorry for that. I do want to ask about that so I’ll put up the question on Facebook later today.
Welcome to the first part of my web comic world building. This is the first time that I’ve written this down, so just bear with me. When I was starting the Shield of Justice, that was my first (and only so far) web comic that I created. A lot of the things I learned was from the Internet, like going to groups to find out about software, Googling different sites that I can post on, and books that talked about web comic design and comic book styles.
Before I started however, I wanted to think about what the web comic was going to be about, because I had an idea but what was the main theme? Starting with this would be the most important part for me. The entire web comic would fall into place if I knew what the main character’s motivation would be. In the Shield of Justice, the theme was about redemption. A past mistake that changed my main character’s life and also those around him. He would do whatever he could to get redemption for that mistake and the story grew around that theme.
Looking back on what I’ve done so far, there was TONS of backstory that I should have built up on before doing the plot and scripts but it was my first run on making a web comic. I’ve gotten good advise over the years on web comics. My new web comic that I’m starting will revolve around faith and how it will impact many of the characters in the stories.
This will be it for part one of my world building experience, I’ll learn more as I go and blog about it. Let me know what’s your strategy for world building. As always, be blessed.
Clean pencils finished two days ago, hitting the ink work pretty hard the last two days. Time to finish this week.
Page 13 in the books. Time to relax, set up and repeat.
Hello. I hope that everyone is having a great holiday. Just wanted to update on the SOJ pages. Page 8 is completed, as I misspoke on page 9 (I jumped ahead on that page), so it’s actually page 8. I’m going to start uploading volume 3 in February, which is when I will have the pages for part one completed. I also wanted to upload the cover page for the volume 3 as a sneak peek for what’s to come.
Also, I’m adding the last ring question for #Marvel heroes/villains to get a ring. The ring of Greed, or Avarice. After today, I’ll go into why I picked my four for each ring (as quick as a can explain). my 4: Dr Doom, Iron Man, Moonstone and Reed Richards.
Hope you enjoy, stay tuned and be blessed.
