To Kill a Dragon GN CoverTo Kill a Dragon GN Cover

Fox Den is going to be publishing the GN of to Kill a Dragon this fall so I sat down and whipped up a new cover for the collected version. Did it as a watercolor since my computer was down for 1/2 the week. Hoping to premier it at APE 2015 this year.

Here's the final version. ^.^

To Kill a Dragon cover 4

To Kill a Dragon cover 4

Nadine is on a MISSION! And poor Betsy is being treated like a motorcycle.

I'm really pleased on how this cover came out as a whole. Issue 4 is nearly in the can and I hope to have it uploaded to various websites by Friday. I'll also be posting on SMEW mostly to test out the new drip-feed plugin that I wrote. Posting to ComiXology is coming along. They should have issue two available anytime now and I just got the notice that issue three will be available soon as well. I've also entered talks with iVerse about adding it to Comics Plus and their Library Service program. Hopefully good things will come of that but nothing official as of yet.

Hope you all enjoy!

Hand Of The Dragon

Hand Of The Dragon

Getting close to releasing issue #3 of ‘To Kill a Dragon’. Here’s the cover image to prove it. ^.^

Sorry I’ve been so quite as of late. Usually when I drop off it’s because I’m either dealing with RL drama, or have my nose to the grindstone. This time, happily, it’s been the latter, not the former. Not only have I been working on getting ‘To Kill a Dragon’ out the door, but I’ve been doing a lot of work behind the scenes here setting up a new eStore and programing needed plugins.

The program work is nearly done. As soon as it is, I’ll be posting ‘To Kill a Dragon’ at SmudgeMarks & EngelWerks as well as a test of our new subscription model for comics, stories, and podcasts.

I’ve also been keeping busy domestic side as well. Been on a slow rampage of house cleaning/organization/getting-rid-of-crap since the emergence room visit a month ago. A lot of this is my vain attempt to get the house a little less allergen friendly. My long standing dream at this point is to get it in shape enough for Roombas to be able work. Yeah, probably never happening, but I can give it the collage “GO”.

Back to the grindstone for me – Issue three won’t letter itself.

The Keeper's Warrior CoverThe Keeper’s Warrior Cover

Keeper and Warrior discuss the practicalities of a wooden amulet they have made. It maybe small, but where Warrior is going, it might mean the difference between wining and loosing.

Woot – and now the cover’s done for “the Keeper’s Warrior”. Just need to do a last bit of proofing, and get the cover and interior layout finalized and off to the presses it goes.

Prints: Available on DA COMING SOON ~ Available on Zazzle

The Keeper's Warrior - Illo 6

The Keeper’s Warrior – Illo 6

Warrior sits and talks with the Wavespeaker, Head Priestess of the temple of Tempest. And yes, she really is that tiny. Doesn’t help he isn’t exactly small.

This is the last illo that I’ll be LiveStreaming. Mostly because I feel the last three pics will be spoilers, and that just ain’t cool. ^.^

I still have no idea what to do for a cover. Don’t know if I’ll be able to stream that or not since I’m unsure on wither to do it with my traditional watercolors or digitally. While I can stream my desktop just fine, I don’t currently have the equipment (ie. web-cam) to do so for more traditional work. I figure I’ll cross that bridge when I come to it.

Oh ~ and here’s something for discussion: I am looking for ideas for getto advertizing for this novella. If you got any ideas – post them here! Thank!

The Keeper's Warrior - Illo 3 (Smudge-0014)

The Keeper’s Warrior – Illo 3

The Warrior, passes by a bread stand on his way to visit the shire of Euseeda. Maybe he should grab a couple of rolls for the road….

Moving right along with the Illustrations for ‘The Keeper’s Warrior”. 3 down, 6 to go!

Getting better with Manga Studio. Got a longs way to go though. Tried in this piece to use the perspective ruler. Could not grok it so I just did the perspective the old fashioned way. Find my point of view, find the horizon-line, then start dropping in diagonals where they meet. I think it all worked out in the end.

mmm fresh baked, hot piping bread…

Great. Now I’m hungry.

The Keeper's Warrior Illo 1

The Keeper’s Warrior Illo 1

Got the first illustration done for the Keeper’s Warrior; Warrior’s first arrival to the Village of Echo Cove via ship.

I’m really happy in how it turned out. Admittedly, I probably spent too much time noodling on it. And since it’s been a while since I’ve really worked in Manga Studio, I think I spent more time trying to remember where all the tools I used were than anything else. lol

Thanks all who joined me for the LiveStream. I’m hoping to LiveStream all the illos for the novella over the next week or so. Also, I’ve left an archive up and it will remain up for the next month or so in case you missed a stream but wanted to check it out. I do warn you, they are very dry, since I can’t talk nor ready any chat messages as I’m working.

Another large painting I did as a wrap-up to my Liberty from Hell comic. This is one of my larger pieces I’ve done and has been hence named the painting of Damocles #2 (#1 sold), as this currently hanging over my roommates bed, threatening to kill him the next time we get a big earthquake.

I was really please in how this painting came out, thou it seems to bring a cold response in viewers. Meh – I like it.
