I’ve wanted to put together a comic of some sort since I was a kid, but it wasn’t until this year that I decided to focus and make it happen. Part of what motivated me was the iPad… with a stylus and apps like Procreate, I finally had a creative surface that I could manage. (I have essential tremor, so conventional ink and paint are problematic, and most free-standing digital surfaces like a Cintiq are just as bad.)
The other thing that got me going was finding Daz (and the associated 3D rendering subculture) back in January or February. I’m just getting to the point where I know enough to know I don’t know much, which in my experience, is where things either get frustrating or interesting. So far, it’s remained interesting. Interesting enough to risk being told I suck in public.
So, with a deep breath, I’m attaching a shot of the cover image, and a link to my blog, where the downloadable ebook versions of the preview edition live.
As far as the 3D stuff in the cover shot, wow, that would be a long list. Epic Wings, Wicked Dance Fevah, Magus, SY’s hoodie, M5, V5, PM’s Margaret, S4 for Genesis, Bad Guy, Hyde, Smay’s Zombies, Town & Country, DieTrying’s morphs, Creature Creator, Gen Face & Body, Gen Expressions, Gen Firearms, Jasmin’s lights, Wildmane, Hampton, the Troll’s mouth… I honestly don’t remember everything that’s been stirred into the pot.
