Jungle River

Wow... I have been getting sloppy. No posts in about 6 months... I've even been slacking on my webcomic. Time to change that then

Here's a little piece that I've been working on for my comic. I was so pleased with how it turned out I think it deserves to stand out on its own.

Episode 4 of the DAMbots is almost over and honestly I wasn't happy with it - it was long and a little bit dull. I was pleased with the art but the story wasn't there. It was like one overlong montage with nothing really happening - bah! Hence me slowly slipping into obscurity on the interwebs and getting distracted by other things, of which I shall make mention of very soon.

So yesterday I got my act together and wrote the synopsis for Episode 5 and was surprised by how well it all fitted together. If I don't get distracted again it will both look awesome and be a fun story. It's hard to believe that about 2 years ago I came up with the overall story arc for the DAMbots and episode 5 was actually originally going to be the first episode. Let's hope I don't get distracted again!...

IF - propagate

Wow... It's been a while since I last posted. Mainly because drawing my webcomic in colour is so time-consuming.

Anyway, I've generally been levelling up with my art skills so here's my take on the latest Illustration Friday topic - propagate. My first thought was seeds and that let to pollen and I just had to work in some microscopic imagery in the end.

comic now on sale

I finally got my act together and issue 1 of Deadly Alien Microbots is printed and now on sale for just 3 dollars, with all the profits I make going to a Leukemia charity instead of my pockets for every copy sold! That works out at little over 1 dollar per copy, but this way you can do some good and read a comic at the same time!

If you're feeling charitable (which I hope you are since it's a New Year and time for all those resolutions) or you simply fancing reading it then check it out here.

The comic looks really great all printed up and here are some photos I took of the thing in my hands. (You'll have to excuse my awful photgraphic skills!):

And for those that have been following my blog, you'll notice the slight change I made from the last final version of the cover. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
