SERVANT Comic Art, Announcements, and Updates (First issue is FREE to Download!) ^_^

edited September 2013 in Art Studio

Hi, guys and gals! I keep forgetting to put up a thread for my digital comic SERVANT here in the ART Studio, but I finally got to it today!

First of all, I'd like to let everyone know that in celebration of Servant's 16 years (created 1997) and as my belated birthday gift last September 5th to everyone, the first issue of the digital comic is available now for FREE Download (in PDF, CBZ, and EPUB formats)! Check the link here: http://comics.drivethrustuff.com/product/102925/Servant-#1?manufacturers_id=4502

I use many DAZ products in the comic (love Genesis!), as well as other Poser products from elsewhere. On that note, I'd like to thank the generous creators who put out freebies which I use throughout the comic. You all rock!

Here are sample pages from the first issue:

    I've done a few profile pics for the Servant Official Facebook page, starting off with the main character, Servant aka Gabriel Barreon/Gal-Ang (found here https://www.facebook.com/SERVANTRULES).

    College Student. Call Center Agent. Sky God. Superhero. That's the gist of who Servant is and what he's about. ^_^

    I wanted to have a look at the first issue but the site wants me to create an account... :shut: But from what you posted it looks like an interesting comic. That was a lot of hard work, you have my admiration.

    Oh, yeah. Drivethrucomics requires registration before you can order anything. Registration is free, though, and you have the option to not receive promo emails and others unless you want to. Registration is quick and easy and it allows you to publish your comics, too. They only take the percentage off your sales (about 35%) unless it's offered free.

    Still, if you don't want to register with the site at all, let me know your email address and I'll send you a copy of the first issue in either PDF, CBZ, or EPUB format. I could also send you a copy in MOBI if you prefer using Kindle. EPUB and MOBI are in black and white/grayscale, however.

    Thanks for your interest and appreciation! :coolsmile:

    Another preview for issue #3 (or possibly #4). Katsuko muses. What or who could she be thinking about?

    As a side note, Jack Tomalin's wonderful Retro Deco set used in this shot is just so versatile!

    Haven't updated in a long while due to personal concerns that left me in a very bad place (finance, health, and an engagement that was aborted). Getting back on my feet has been harder thanks to my hard drive crashing and even the backups went missing. I'm just thankful not all my art is lost and issues 1 and 2 were saved in my email. Issue 3's pages, however, were still WIPs so all of them went kablooey.

    Anyway, after some time finding the strength to go on, made some progress with rebuilding from almost scratch. One of them is making overall improvements with the character designs. Here are a few, with the updated looks of the central cast:
