After a month and a half hiatus, we have returned. Work, college, and family related issue took us from being able to make comics for a while. We apologize to all our followers for having to take that hiatus but we didn’t have a choice. We decided to return to 3d models. In the future the models will look more cartoony. For the last year for school I have been making models with Cinema 4d and Maya. It is far superior then Daz 3d. I plan on making simpler models in Blender and avoiding DAZ products like the plague. We still have some story comics in the future we plan on finishing. We will upload them when they are finished.
Now where did I put my masterball?…
I have many funny jokes that would not work with Alex and Cruz. So I have decided to start making what I call ‘random’ comics. The will be posted at anytime. When inspiration hits me. These are quick comics so they will not have the polish that most of my comics will ‘eventually’ have.
I am very sorry for not posting anything for two weeks, I’ve been as sick as a dog. I will be creating a ‘makeup’ comic very shortly.
Here is some concept art for Cruz, a superhero’s sidekick forced into early retirement. I will let your imagination play out what the creature on the right is for 🙂
I returned to drawing the comic by hand. I was never happy with the 3d models as I kitbashed them together like some Frankenstein monstrosity to make them work. I plan on creating the 3d models from scratch. I will keep you updated with blog posts on the progress. Don’t expect to see finished models until the end of the year.
Like I mentioned we made out 1500 follower goal. Thank you everyone . When we made it to 1500 we where going to start the story segments.
When we get to 3500 followers, we plan to make an animated short every month.
Also be prepared to see slight adjustments in the character design. You input is valuable to us. Let us know what you think. We would love to hear from you.
This month I will be posting the concept art for our story segments for you to check out.
This comic is brought to you in SKETCHOVISION TM. Cruz and I haven’t been able get together to make more comics. So I decided to sketch a comic this week. This really happened, the words are verbatim. Cruz claims he did this because he was holding the phone with his neck. I think it’s because he’s loosing his mind 😛 NOT ENOUGH COFFEE JD!!!
Sorry for not posting last week. Both Cruz and I got really sick. We where unable to work on the comic. We usually have a backlog but we used up our backlog when we went out of town – Alex the Dragon
This is my first attempt a lip-syncing a character to the dialog by manually keyframing and tweening. It took a couple hours to match the vocals to the mouth movement. The voice is from a sample from The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug.
