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.
Have you ever noticed that in some comics, the artist will never show the characters below the waist. This is probability why. About centaurs, they look so awkward, I must admit. I’ve always wondered why there is a ‘taur’ in centaur because a traditional centaur is half horse, half man. Not half bull, half man.
Some concepts for Alex and Cruz. This project will began on Jan of 2015. It is a short comic spoof with Cruz as a superhero (one of his weaknesses is chocolate FYI). These concepts are part of this story.
The parody comic will be uploaded on Tuesdays and Thursdays. The Sunday /Monday comic with the animals will continue to be uploaded on sun/mon (and will remain a bastion for our insanity) the parody comic will have no link to the Sunday comic. In fact I have redesigned the models for the Sunday comic but that will be for another post
Note both of these sketches are WIP.
My friend Cruz loves Amazon Prime, almost as much as Darth Vader. While I like the free shipping that comes with it, you have to buy $100 worth of shipping to make it practical. I don’t buy that much on amazon. Cruz thinks the streaming video options on Prime are better then Netflix. I disagree. However compared to Netflix, Prime is cheaper by $20 annually but you have to pay it all upfront. To each their own. – Alex the Dragon
I miss the Barnes and Noble in my small town that was closed due to ‘lack of interest’. Although I commonly read books on my iPad, its just not the same as having a physical copy in your hands. It feels strangely ‘fake’ using tablets and book readers . Like I’m not really reading. My friend Cruz dislikes me using the ‘B’ word in his presence, the word ‘book’. But then he reads graphic novels… Hippo-crate (the question is how do they fit the hippo in the crate :P) – Alex the Dragon
That is about what I look like in real life until I get my coffee! Unfortunately (start playing violin) like this poor dragon, I am doomed to be single forever *sigh* (end violin). I’m still having issues with my 3d modeling software. I will probably have to draw them for a bit more. I will try to draw more unique panels in the future.
