6-Commando

Post by Mr. Average » Mon Aug 24, 2009 6:19 pm

I decided to try to learn how to be more systematic about my work, and so I created a one-shot piece of cheesy military sci-fi with the goal of completing one page per week, from blank sheet to full color and lettering. Hopefully I can sustain it. The story is simplistic, and this is my first foray into full color. So there's lots to be learned on all fronts. At the very least I hope to teach myself some discipline, and apply it to my more serious projects. If all goes to plan I'll post a new page each week 'til this is done. It's fluffy and amateurish, to be sure, but I hope you enjoy it anyway.

EDIT: I boosted the test size for web viewing by 20%, after a number of people told me it was too hard to read. I hope this is better.

Amateurish?!? Are you kidding me? This looks great! This reminds me of the GI-Joe series I watched when I was a kid, although I doubt if the colours in the series hade as much depth in them as your colours have here. Series was from the 80's after all, so I guess the colours were quit flat.

In short: can't wait to see more!

Wow. Thanks, Joost, that's a tremendous compliment! I was going for an animated look, and actually toyed with flatter color schemes, but the shade and shadow was what I ended up going with.

I'm on schedule so far, so the next one will be ready next Monday. I'm glad it's finding a good reception!

Just a little update: I have jumped in with both feet and set up my own website, both for my portfolio and general work (currently empty) and for 6-Commando which is uploaded and underway. I hope you'll all check it out, as I could use the comments. I'll probably continue posting here as well for convenience sake, though.

I hope to see you on my site soon!

Thanks for the encouragement, Joost! Working like this is kind of like shouting into the dark, and it really helps to have a few words like that here and there!

And the next page is up, too, so whoever's interested, check it out! This one-week thing seems to be working out!

Thanks, Joost. Unfortunately I missed my deadline this week - sometimes you just get overtaken by events, I guess!

I'll troll for guest art next time, maybe.
